Seeing as we need more deep-fried chicken in our already overweight nation, Popeyes has now hit South Africa.The City Press #Trending team gave it a go...

"I’d pick Popeyes over KFC any day of the week. I’d recommend the mash, which has little pieces of chicken and a delicious (I’m talking takeaway delicious) gravy. The chicken strips are nice and the chips are a must. Stay away from the rest – it won’t do much for you. Three stars." – Rhodé Marshall

"The strips and the burgers were on point, but the actual chicken pieces were way too deep fried. Even the skin was too much to handle, and that’s the best part of chicken. You won’t have to worry about avian flu, though – no pathogens could survive all that oil. Catch me at Nando’s. Two stars." – Phumlani S Langa

"I hated it as much as I hate all food that features shades of unhealthy, deep-fried brown as its only colour. I resent that Popeyes exists. One star." – Grethe Kemp

"I’d heard rumours about the battered Popeyes chips, but, like the chicken, they’re on another level of crunchy sauciness – dip them in the spicy mayo for extra juice. Four stars." – Garreth van Niekerk
