I never have a good day on 9/11, but there is a silver lining in the cloud that is hanging over me today. The new Popeye’s on West Adams  in Temple is now open! Being a native south Louisiana girl, this makes me feel right at home.

If you have never had their red beans and rice, you are totally missing out. I don’t know what they put in there, but it will light up your taste buds in a great way.

I didn’t ask about the chicken sandwich, but I can tell you that they do have a plethora of chicken tenders and they are tasty.

I'm a Popeye's alum. My first visit was to a location in the southeast Louisiana town of Hammond (where they filmed the TV show "In The Heat of The Night"). I was in college, money was tight, and Popeye's had great food that was affordable. They are pricier now, but at least now I have a job to afford it.;)
