I would disagree, given my experience at the Popeye's in Niagara Falls, NY:

Friendly reminder #1: The Golden Arches fast food chain is McDonald's, not MacDonald's. Thank you for your attention.
Friendly reminder #2: Price matching is NOT the law. Never was, never will be. Nobody can stop you from shopping elsewhere.

Has anyone here had one yet? What is so special about it?

Meh...had it in the US recently and didn't think it was anything special. I prefer CFA.

If this is equal to the Chick Fil A, then I'd say its not really a big deal. Chick Fil A makes a very good chicken sandwich considering its from a large chain, & at a relatively affordable price. But it's not worth lining up 30 mins or 1 hr for or people arguing, fighting, etc over. I think this Popeyes sandwich is probably roughly as good as the Chick Fil A if I had to guess (based on some of the reviews I've read) in which case I will let the hype die down before I bother going to get it.

it's a chicken sandwich from a fast food chain. How revolutionary can it really be?

Personally, I can't wait to try it. I also love the fact that Popeyes is widespread available. It is nice to have another option available for when I am in the mood for a sandwich.

From what I gather, these 'new' chicken sandwiches have added relish/pickle slices under the chicken. The chicken is whatever that chain has to offer. I haven't had CFA yet, nor the Popeyes one. Will probably try the popeyes one since there's a 24hr location across the street from my work.

What people haven't talked about is the A&W version, which IMO is great. But not sure if it compares to the others.

From what I was told. Popeyes Canada isn't the same as in the USA. The Canadian version is inferior. The A&W Chicken burger I find is delicious and I'm not fond of chicken burgers.

Popeyes in America is literally inedible. When I lived in the States, I was ecstatic when I moved in down the block from a Popeyes only to discover that: 1) They did not have a sandwich at the time and that 2) The chicken tastes awful and is incredibly rubbery in comparison to the Canadian version.

I've tried Popeyes in Florida, Texas and Nevada and they have all been terrible compared to your local GTA Popeyes.
