Do you want chicken? Do you want chicken that is so good that it will make you crazy with delight in such a way that you slap the people who are dearest to you? Well.... This chicken is so delicious that it will tickle your taste buds and give you euphoric waves that lead to temporary insanity.

In and out quickly really like the food. Has just the right amount of spices. Not too much just right. Great taste and service at the Durham location

Good! The customer service here is respectful and not what you expect from a fast food chain. The Oreo cookie is great!!! I’ve been here a few times, and I haven’t had any issues with my order or quality of food.

I had the 2 piece chicken platter and it was delicious! The food was fresh and hot with good portions! The staff was very courteous and helpful. I'll definitely go back there again!

I had almost given up on fried chicken until it was offered at my job. This place has renewed my love of chicken. We now eat there at least once a week. Staff are great and Sara and Marianna will take great care of you. Give them both a raise!

I purchased the shrimp and biscuit combo with a drink, and a shrimp box. They were very good. Just like I thought it would be. This is something that I would recommend.

The service there is amazing, contrary to popular opinion. The employees are respectful. Food is also hot and fresh just how I like it.

Well run. Fastest service of any fast food store. Like us so much I paid Mike the Manager a compliment. He remembers my order every order since.

We ordered the family meal for $24 to come with 5 biscuits, 10 pieces of chicken, and 2 sides. Well, we ordered that and several more items. So we had a good old eat in the car family time. Their Mac and cheese was really good. It truly felt and tasted like homemade Mac and cheese. We will do this again. It saved me time from cooking and good family time. However we needed a nap when we got home. I loved the food, and the Strawberry lemonade was awesome.

Regular-sized sides are a ripoff. Maybe 3-4 bites for $1.79. Large is like 3x the size for ~twice the cost. I don't blame this specific location, and the rest of the food is reasonably priced, but heads up that Regular feels much more like what a Small might be if it was offered.

Good fried chicken. Not Great and definitely Not bad chicken. Definitely a GOOD-CHANGE from Bojangles.

I go to Popeyes for the chicken sandwich and fries every time. I can honestly say that I personally asked him to cook it fresh each time because I know I live about 20 minutes away from it and I just want a fresh tasting sandwich and every time that I've done that I haven't had any issues and the food is always been delicious. The lines are pretty long like Chick-fil-A but, that's a good thing.

Love their chicken sandwich. The spicy chicken sandwich is VERY spicy. Friendly, well-trained staff. Drive thru gets busy because of popularity, but they do a good job.

Husband wanted ghost pepper wings. I love the chicken sandwich but didn't get it because I was driving. I decided to get tenders instead. Bad movie that day. Tenders were thinner than normal and so dry that even dipping them didn't improve them. Didn't finish them. Husband said wings weren't that spicy. Stick with the sandwich if you are willing to wait in a half hour long drive thru line.

Most of the employees are friendly, but could be a bit better with communication. Clean on the inside. They are always busy at this location. So, they can be a little slow at times. Food is really good. Always a fight in here for some reason at this location.

In the beginning,this was delicious and hot,loved the crispness of the batter. Sandwich much better than tenders. 3 out of 4 last times we went,it was cold and greasy tasting. Last night was probably the last time we go..

Always long line when I go. However they do a good job knocking that line down. Not the best but great. Everytime except last time was great presentation, this time was just good. Food was good.

It puts the Bo and the Colonel to shame. Great chicken, awesome red beans and rice, onion rings that actually have ONION in them and like-Granny-used-to-make buttermilk biscuits. And very efficient and friendly service.

My girlfriend ate all the red beans and rice...no sharing...wouldn't leave until every french fry morsel was consumed demanded I switch spicy chicken. Sandwiches with her because mine "looked better". Ordered a large drink, even though we ate in and she could get free refills. Demanded extra ketchup packets and wasted all but 4. Gluttony.

The food & customer service is great, but the location/ parking lot arrangement is gonna get someone killed over some chicken. Seriously...folks are willing to hold-up traffic and risk the whole rear end of their car to get into the parking lot. It's not popeyes fault though

Best Popeyes in the area. ALWAYS fast and friendly service. Restaurant is always clean, and food is great. If you're traveling on 85, go to this one, NOT they one up the road in Oxford. Oxford location sucks and food is greasy and tasteless.

Always been a popeyes lover. Don't eat there as often as I would like. Some friends of ours gave us 5 dollar redeemable coupons for our Anniversary for there. WOOHOO! Popeyes here we come. Durham location has always been great!

Great food, very busy place. There are cars lined up on the street just to go through the drive thru. So that should give anyone an idea of how good the food is there.

After a long wait, I am so glad that we finally have Popeyes Chicken in Durham. This is hands down the best fried chicken in the area! and the sandwich is on point with a crunchy outside and tender and juicy middle and tasty bread.

Popeyes was wonderful! Outstanding chicken sandwich! 👍 Tasty and big. Got spicy and classic chicken sandwiches for the family and they are all gone. 😁

Ok, so the line was extremely long. I loved though how quick the inside service was and considering that covid-19 is going on it is good to see if not everyone, at least the workers taking this seriously. I enjoyed the food not to mention that they got my order right and didn't act rude in any way shape or form. I highly recommend going there

Great food, service is pretty good. It's just always busy so plan for a bit of a wait. Thankfully, the staff is on top of things so the wait is usually not bad at all.

I might be the last person in my town to try the new chicken sandwich. It was good. What was great was the speed, accuracy, and attitude at the drive thru. It was crowded and it took a hot minute, but it never locked up. The line was tolerable because it was logical. No one car took any more or less time than any other. Don't know how they do that, but four Stars for making it happen.

I finally got around to trying their new chicken sandwich that was sold out everywhere for a while. I got it and a 2 piece chicken dinner with one piece regular and one piece Louisiana spicy that came with a biscuit. The sandwich was good, but I liked the chicken better. The regular was very tasty and the spicy was excellent with a great combination of spices. Service was fast so give them a try.

Excellent food and quick service. Great price for the amount of food you get as well. One of the first locations to reintroduce the legendary and elusive chicken sandwich as well. If you're hungry for chicken, Popeyes delivers!

I love the chicken at Popeyes, but the new sandwich was nothing to write home about. I had both the classic and the spicy one. The service here is anywhere between very polite to not much at all. The cashiers are always nice, but the servers say nothing. It's a clean place, but I've not been to the bathrooms. The service is quick despite it being a very busy place.

I got the new chicken sandwich and it was real good. I rank it #1 out of all of the fast food restaurants and possibly even some non fast food restaurants. However, i would not wait on the long hour long lines that have been reported and definitely would not get into any altercation over it. It's just a good chicken sandwich folks. It's not a million dollars.

I dined alone early on a Sat eve at a table in the bar. Josh provided excellent service. When my meal was delivered, I was just a little disappointed in the presentation. However, it was fantastic. The charbroiled salmon was hot off the grill and delicious. I love steamed spinach and it was great too. Simple with a little fresh parmasean, which I really enjoyed.

Eh...the spicy chicken sandwich is overrated! The power of social media would lead you to believe that it was made by God himself...not even close. It has a decent taste but nothing to argue, fight, or stab someone over. Save your money folks and don't waste your gas waiting in line for one!

I love coming here for a healthier fast food option. Highly recommend the blackened chicken tenders; they take a little longer to make but worth the wait!

I love that chicken from Popeyes. I just am not fond of their mashed potatoes and gravy...the best thing besides the chicken is the red beans and rice..employees are always courteous.

Definitely a favorite of ours! Our food is usually delicious but there always seems to be items missing. Who wants to get up from their dinner and drive 15 minutes to get it? Definitely not us... it's a shame to because we lose money on the back end.

Every single time that I've been here it has been a pleasant experience. The food is fresh, the service is great, and they give plenty of sauces. I have been here through dine-in and take-out. I live all the way in Chapel Hill, so I have not been tried their delivery services. Overall, 5-Stars and would highly recommend. I'm from the north, so lack of Popeye's has been hurting me for years. Thankfully they have expanded and having this legendary chicken from my childhood has been such a godsend.

August 2021. What’s good instafam. Stopped here for a quick bite. Per usual, I always get the fried chicken 🍗 , asking for all thighs. ALWAYS GET THE SPICY; it’s not too spicy, but definitely makes it better 🤤. Love me some of that good dark meat ugh. I also got some the chicken nuggets? This was a while back so I’m not sure if they’re still available on the menu. Also, I wish they gave more gravy though 🥲 @Popeyes, this was my first time getting mashed potatoes - do you typically put this amount of gravy for every serving or does this vary by worker? Service was good and staff was friendly. Always be sure to use the app for some deals!! Would come back to this location.
