It's a Popeye's. In other words, like KFC, but spicier, and with more interesting side dishes.

This is in the same outbuilding of the Free State Mall as the Subway I reviewed last week. That means it has the same parking issues. While I neglected to penalize Subway for the inadequate parking, I think it's a bigger problem with a place like Popeye's. Typically, you'd expect to find a drive-through -- like at the one ten minutes away in Crofton/Gambrills, so having to navigate an annoying parking situation is perhaps more than you want to endure to get your greasy chicken.

I have to admit I find their chicken tasty enough to tempt me, but I may be getting too old to digest it smoothly. It gets some credit for being the only Popeye's in Bowie, but not much.
