I had my first and last visit to Popeyes; one cashier with the manager standing behind the counter and the chicken was not fit to feed my dog as u could tell it had been sitting a while. Customers could not find a place to sit for the workers...or not...taking up the space in the dining room. I should have stopped at Crown Chicken!

I have been to several Popeye's and the one in Roanoke, Va has the worst customer service. The prices are higher than the Popeye's in larger cities. When I said something to the Co-owner The so called Pastor...who was saying that he liked to make money. That is just the beginning. It would be nice if he runs the Popeyes better than he runs his ministry. You will be hearing from me.

There is nothing wrong with this area. The problems are in SE where drugs and prostitution is rampant but I understand SE IS MOSTLY WHITE!

You aint kidding, its nasty!! It leaves a funky taste in your mouth, the only thing they have worth anything is their biscuits. Zaxby's chicken is way better.

Its in a terrible part of town which is probly y it has such terrible service and nasty food.. they should have put it on vinton or somewhere appropriate where ppl can actually go and have decent managment.. hopefully they will wise up and put in another one bc popeyes normally has good food..
