Popeye's on Yonge Street - does it suck?!

I was at Yonge & Bloor earlier today and passed by a Popeye's chicken franchise, which I've never noticed before.

I've only eaten at Popeye's once, in Covington LA, and I loved it. But the posters here say they're highly location-dependent.

So...... is the Toronto one any good? And are the menu items the same as elsewhere - red beans, dirty rice, biscuits......?

(I have to say it didn't look promising; dark and mostly-empty, with kind of smeary windows. But oh, I hope it's good :-)

    1. the food's okay at this location but the service is terrible. The guy taking my order pretty well grunted at me when I asked a question. When I told the manager he truly didn't care. Haven't been back and won't.

      1. I've only been to this location twice and thought it sucked. The one further south, at Dundas, is alot better.

        1. Yeah, I didn't even know about the Dundas one until I read Gary's link - essentially the same conversation, about six months ago. Gotta love Chowhound :-)

          I'll try Dundas which is closer to me anyway. Thanks guys.

          1. Sorry, I made a mistake; it was the Yonge Dundas location with the bad service.
