foodbeast.com – UPDATE: Sweet Dixie Kitchen responded to the accusations of them using Popeyes chicken. Still no denial of their dishes containing Popeyes, but they did strongly defend the several foods that are made from scratch. They said, “We have never claimed we make each and every item,” which wasn’t exactly the case before they changed their Facebook bio this morning. Check out the Facebook response below:
Sweet Dixie Kitchen in Long Beach, California has some pretty favorable Yelp reviews and seems to be pretty popular, but one reviewer was not impressed, called them out for selling Popeyes fried chicken, and prompted a strange response from the restaurant.
Tyler H. of Los Angeles, CA accused the restaurant of passing off Popeyes chicken as their own. In the review, Tyler said:
“Before my friends and I got seated we saw them quickly bring in two large boxes of Popeyes to the kitchen. I ordered the Chicken and Waffles to see whether or not they were serving Popeyes to their customers. I thought the chicken tasted suspiciously like Popeyes and was also rather stale. I kindly asked our waiter how they cooked their fried chicken. After checking he admitted that they do in fact use Popeyes.”
Instead of denying it, Sweet Dixie owner Kimberly Sanchez appeared to reply to the review, saying they “Proudly serve Popeyes spicy tenders.”
As an ambassador of the South Jersey charter of the I Love Popeyes Club….i’ll allow this…the owner simply knew their food couldn’t compare to Popeyes delicious chicken and said fuck it. I’m not mad at them at all.
