New Popeyes Chicken is opening this week in Seasons of Tuxedo.  Wonder how it will compare to the ones in the US.  So far the American chains coming to Winnipeg have been pretty weak compared to in the US.  The IHOP here is horrible compared to the US restaurants, and the Famous Daves is pretty bad as well compared to the ones in the US.

I've had Popeyes in Toronto but not in the states and thought it was pretty good.

Haven't been to IHOP yet, but Famous Dave's is just meh. Went a couple times within the first year of opening by haven't been back since.

Qdoba is pretty solid in terms of "new to Canada" American chains. I'd prefer Chipotle, but the concept is pretty much the same.

I have found portions are always bigger in the US restaurants...cheaper prices....in Canada service is better, restaurants are cleaner

Quality of the food is usually pretty close. 

Just my observations

Just had the new/old Royal Pizza from their new location at Dakota/Ward...  excellent pizza, and good service, at a decent price.  My wife likes a cheeseburger pizza, and theirs was spot on.   Next time, I'll be getting the special...

I went to the outlet mall yesterday and had trouble leaving because the drive thru line up wrapped around the building and onto way down the road.

Gonna have to wait a few weeks/months to get near there.

No doubt!!  I have been to several Popeyes Chicken in the US, and trust me, Mary Browns is just as good, maybe better.  People are just hyped for the brand name, not the product itself.

Popeyes has spicy and regular.  You can get both.
