Houston, We Have A Problem

A riot broke out in a Houston-area Popeye’s restaurant this week, all because the location ran out of chicken sammiches. No offense. TXNick, but I may be rethinking my move to the Lone Star State.

Among the hungry mob were two women and three men, who reportedly stopped at the drive-thru in southeast Houston on Scott Street and Corder just after 9pm Monday. But the routine transaction quickly took a dramatic turn when the employee at the window told them their supplies of the new and infamous Popeyes chicken sandwich had run dry.

In response, all five of the currently unidentified suspects tried to force their way inside the restaurant, with one of the men even pulling out a gun refusing to take no for an answer.

Throughout the ordeal, the group left a baby unattended in the back seat of their blue SUV.

Well, at least the parents’ priorities are in order.

I’ve had Popeye’s before, and it’s pretty good, That said, Kyle was recently at a Raising Cane’s restaurant, and he claims it’s the best fast food chicken he has ever tasted.

  1. You could build a Raising Canes and Chick-Fil-A next door to each other and they would both have lines of people buying their food…..both have great chicken with enough difference to offer the consumer some variety.


  2. Don’t judge Texas by Houston. It would be like judging Pennsylvania by looking at Philly. Get out of the cities (in any state) and you will find better people.

    I recall an experiment that was made way back in the 70’s, or maybe earlier. Scientists took a couple of mice and put them in a cage. They added another mouse the next day, and the two original mice were ok with the newcomer. They did the same thing the next day, and still all was well. They continued adding mice to the cage (and extra food for them to compensate) until the mice were attacking each other. Sounds a lot like a city life to me.

    BTW, Cain’s is tied in my book for good fried chicken. Luckily, there are both franchises near my home. (Now, if I could just go back home…)


  3. TXNick – The Dallas-area lacrosse players always destroy the Houston and San Antonio players. I don’t know why, but it was funny listening to them during our visit last year.


        1. The last Dreadnought afloat. All others, of all countries, sunk or scrapped. I’ve been on her as recently as May of last year. Sadly in need of some TLC, but still awesome.
