Popeyes started in New Orleans by Al Copeland as a regular fried chicken place and added Cajun spices to distinguish themselves from other fast food fried chicken places. Now they have restaurants all over the US and in some foreign countries.

Al Copeland is now a very rich man - in addition to the Popeye's chain, he has
* Copeland's Famous New Orleans Restaurant and Bar in New Orleans,
* Copeland's Cheesecake Bistros (which have a full menu and not just cheesecake), one of which just opened in Richmond, VA,
* Diversified Foods and Seasonings (a food processing company which is comprised of spice blending/packaging facilities in Metairie, Louisiana, as well as San Antonio, Texas; cooking operations in Metairie and Madisonville Louisiana, and a flour blending/packing operation in Theodore, Alabama which does such things as Honey B-B-Q Style Black Beans, Shrimp Etouffee, Louisiana Seafood Gumbo and Roasted Corn Chowder under several labels),
* Mariner's Village Marina,
* Improv (several locations)
* Jukebox Cajan Diner and
several hotels in New Orleans.

There is a Popeyes, a Taco Bell and a Boston Market all right next to each other in the median of Maryland Route 3 in Crofton, and sometimes I go to one and sometimes to another.

Favorite Dish: I go to Popeyes mostly for the sides - particularly the red beans and rice. The Cajun battered fries are also good. The last time I went I tried the shrimp basket, and the honey wings. I liked both.

I also had the New Orleans cheesecake which I thought was undistinguished. Popeye's desserts are their weak point IMHO

I haven't tried any of the Po' Boy sandwiches yet but they look good.
