Red Beans and Rice


It's safe to say that for most people "fast food" is loved for the "fast" and not always the "food." That's not to take anything away from Popeye's, because the nationwide chain seems to have gotten one item down pat: the red beans and rice, which RFT readers find the best in town. With a bucket of chicken on the side, or without, our readers seem to like the quick pace -- and quality -- at Popeye's. They know their beans.
