We had a great meal at this location. Had fun chatting with the cashier about the different specials between Tacoma and our usual location in Colorado. The food was hot & fresh. The employees were super friendly. My husband had to personally compliment the cook on his tasty cooking skills.

Had some KFC and this to compare. We like popeyes better. Chicken is juicer. Biscuits fluffier. Don't need to purchase a meal.

Very disappointed in popeyes it was mine and my cousins first time ever coming we got four of the big boxes and all of them had mashed potatoes for the side and they didn't give us any spoons and no honey for our biscuits. Plus the customer service was horrible the ladies were rude at the window. And the food... More

I really like Popeyes. the spicy chicken and po boys and red beans and rice are fantastic. I really wish they would put out more coupons because they are expensive to feed a family of four.

A nice modern and clean Popeye's location. Service was friendly and quick. The chicken was, as usual, quite tasty. A good choice for freeway food.

The last place on Earth to eat and expect good food. Their ads on TV are misleading. I think they buy tiny chicken from back East some where and it is frozen or it could be local pigeon . But that's not possible our pigeons in Tacoma are way bigger than the crap they are passing off as chicken. Not... More

Very busy place and the staff seems overwhelmed at best. The chicken is fine but they tend to neglect filling up those tiny side containers with your rice and beans or anything else. I'm always tempted to say, "Really??? Can't you fill that thimble container up?!"

I don't understand what the hype is with this establishment. The employees are rude, messed up our order and then proceeded to question if we were lying. Not to mention it's overpriced. The drive-thru is horrible since it is right next to the highway so you have to practically yell to get your order in. Much rather just go to... More
