    This is GREAT news! According to my notes, chicken waffle tenders have not been offered at Popeyes since June 2014. My kid LOVES them. This will be a three-visit month.

      I love this, no sarcasm, we’re all fast food junkies here – I want to know more about these notes of yours! Do share!

      • Jeff says:

        So sorry — they are more like father/son notes, not fast food notes. We went yesterday and my son reported they are “at least as good, if not better” than last time.

        • Bubbsy says:

          That’s even cooler – awesome dad, carry on! One day hopefully your son will see these notes and realize how luck he is to have a thoughtful dad —

    I like Popeye’s chicken very much, and I want to like their tenders, but every time I’ve gotten any variety of their tenders – they’re always cut so narrow which causes them to come out tough and leathery from the time in the fryer. I can’t think of any other place where that is such a consistent issue. Shame. The opposite end of the spectrum in my region (MI) are the tenders from Lee’s. Not my favorite fried chicken, but definitely the best tenders. And their coupons are omnipresent.

    Probably my favorite fast food LTO ever. Anybody know how long they’re going to keep these on the menu?

    • Jeff says:

      The fine print on the store-window signs says they are to be offered until Feb. 26, although the asst mgr pointed out (as I proceeded to discuss this topic with her at great length) that stores can “sell out” before the planned end date. She also said that in her four years at Popeyes, chicken waffle tenders have been one of the more popular promotions, which makes one wonder why they’re not offered more often.

    I was so elated when I stopped by Popeye’s yesterday to discover these are back. Count me as having a sheltered life if you like but to my taste buds the waffle tenders are just about the best chicken I ever remember having. Lots of trips to Popeyes while these are on the menu.

    I hated these. Chicken and waffles are the salty of the chicken paired with the sweetness of the syrup. This was just all sweet.

  7. ACS says:

    Had these for the first time this weekend and they were amazing.. I didn’t use the Honey sauce as I thought they were sweet enough without it and I don’t really care for sweet sauces anyway. Definitely going to get them again.

    These were good as ever, 3 strips so big they barely fit in the tub. I hope Burger King doesn’t buy them and crap things up
