Missing Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich? Here Are Some Great Local Places To Try

Popeyes may have run out of their famous chicken sandwich for now – but that doesn’t mean you have to do without. In fact, you might even find that you like these better! So, with no further adieu, here are some places you can get great chicken sandwiches in New Orleans (in no particular order):

You’ll have to follow them on Facebook or Twitter to see where they’re parked, but the jerk chicken sandwich is well worth that small effort. A sizeable portion of chicken in a sweet and spicy sauce, topped with a creole slaw – this sandwich is the height of Caribbean-Creole fusion.

The Ray Ray Po-Boy at Sammy’s Deli comes highly recommended. A fried chicken breast, grilled ham, and melted Swiss cheese all on French bread. Get it dressed with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and mayo and add some cheese if that’s your thing. They’re located at 3000 Elysian Fields Avenue.

The fried chicken sandwich at Station 6 has been described as “Popeyes meets Chick-Fil-A,” and it’s from a locally-owned business, which makes it better than both in our opinion. The fried chicken breast has a spicy glaze and is dressed with pickles and a chunky bleu cheese sauce. Check them out at 105 Metairie Hammond Highyway in Bucktown.

Okay, okay – we’ll admit this one is just for fun. As delicious as that chicken sandwich looks, it’s an imposter. You’re actually seeing a cake made by local cake artist Shal Delpit. Check out some of her other creations on her Facebook page.
