In round one, the top seed Chick-fil-A easily took down Burger King in its match-up over best chicken sandwich, capturing 91% of the vote. Popeyes, whose latest chicken sandwich first ruffled all our feathers, has reason to cluck after taking 86% of the vote over McDonald's.

After work we all went to Popeyes to get a spicy chicken sandwich and I’ve never seen so many people angry about waiting for some food. From what we know, the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich is not in Canada yet. After we finally got our food, is tastes like everything it's cracked up to be. The only difference between regular and spicy is mayo vs. creole spread. the chicken itself is not breaded spicier. (still plenty spicy).
