Alberta has Two New Popeyes Restaurant Locations!

In past conversations with others, many have the same frustrations over ‘new’ dining openings, because they are simply repeats of choices we already have plenty of here in Alberta. That being said, we’re always really excited when a franchise opens locally, which broadens our choices. 

This past weekend my girls and I ate at our first Popeyes, a restaurant which I was sure we’d have to visit when travelling far away from home since it’s a longtime American fast food favourite.

Big news on the dining choices Albertans – two Popeyes locations to enjoy! While Popeyes has over 2,000 restaurants globally and the only ones in Canada being in Ontario, it’s great that Albertans can now dine and enjoy.

The Calgary Popeyes location will be open soon, yet the Edmonton location {17th Avenue S.E} is now open and serving customers!

We had the opportunity of dining at Popeyes recently, so from first hand experience – YAHOO, it’s so good!

Already it’s a big hit, crowds were wanting to have a first-hand taste. Despite being so busy, service was as timely as could be expected. 

Popeyes has a distinctly Louisiana-influenced menu featuring fried {spicy and mild} chicken, fried shrimp and other seafood, as well as jambalaya, buttermilk biscuits, red beans and rice and other regional items.

We ordered a sampling from the menu, and enjoyed it all. I was especially surprised and impressed that the chicken tenders were chicken breasts, and hearty ones at that. Also important to note, it’s not greasy as one would expect from fried chicken – Louisiana chicken, where you have been?

I’ve never eaten at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen before, and for those that have – you’ll understand the big deal here. My kids and I were so impressed with the food, the taste was amazing. We were glad we ordered so much and all shared a sampling, it made for great leftovers the next day as well.

When visiting the US in the past, I always meant to dine at Popeyes and always regretted not taking the opportunity. Dining options are a wonderful thing, it’s so nice that Alberta will have two Popeyes locations, we’ll definitely be back.
