I saw the same post... I had zero interest in trying Yes before that (Foody Goody has scared me away from any and all chinese buffets like that) and now that picture sealed the deal.

If Popeyes comes to this end of town, I'll try it but if it's KFC-like then it'll be a one and done for me.  I'll stick to Mary Brown's for my fried chicken.

Mary Browns actually is the best of of the bunch, hell it actually tastes BETTER than KFC the thighs are super crispy

New Popeyes rumoured to open up at Henderson and Chief Peguis near Boston Pizza.    I tried Popeyes on Kenaston and found it extremely mediocre.  On par with KFC which isn't saying much at all.

How can you hate "The Colonel"?

KFC is god awful,  I think it's also a rule that all KFC/Taco Bells have to be poorly renovated and rarely cleaned.

I tried Popeyes a month after it opened and tried the "spicy" chicken sandwich.   I'm not a spice snob but it had nearly zero heat to it.   The chicken tasted exactly like the chicken fingers you can get at Chester Fried Chicken or your local 7-11.   My co workers had various different items and nobody said that they wanted to try it again.     The best fried chicken I've had was surprisingly at the Viscount Gort buffet.   Super crispy coating and the chicken was tasty and not dry at all.

Bigg Jay -  Yes buffet is massive and has a lot of options.  More options then buffet square does out in the Maples.    However myself and two other people I know have each had food poisoning at different times when going there.   The food tasted good (for what it is)  but the track record has been poor and I'd avoid.    Mongos is a much safer bet ….  I've gone to Mongos probably 100 times and never have been sick once.

Speaking of places set to open, it may not have been confirmed but a Ben and Florentine will be moving into the building being build near Dairy Queen on Regent. it kind of sounds like it'll be like Cora's

well my mother and I just got back from there, and it was so good, the bacon was crispy, they had the type of sausage that my dad used to buy, and OMG a chocolate chip waffle drizzled in chocolate hazelnut, with specs of white chocolate and almond slivers, yum.
