Has anyone ever had good service and/or food at this location? I really like their food at other locations in the state but every time I give the lone BCS location a try, it's a 20-30 minute wait for terrible food.

Both locations are terrible. The one on Hwy6 is always filled with foul mouthed employees and the one on 2818 is SLOW. I'd rather take my business to a place without profanity and less wait. I typically recommend staying away from fast food attached to gas stations. Also before condemning me, I'll exclude Mooyah and Garpez even though I wouldn't consider them fast food.

When I lived in DC, people used to joke about "Popeye's Chicken Syndrome"...which is when there are far more staff then customers, and nothing is happening.

Before we moved here, we used to eat at a Popeye's in our old town. It was very good: hot, crispy chicken, and the service was fine. After living here awhile, we decided to go to the one on Graham road (this was over a decade ago). That was our first and last Popeye's experience in the Brazos Valley.

Same thing. Went to that one on Graham once. Never went back. There is probably a reason it ain't a Popeyes anymore.

Yeah I was gonna post that maybe the staff from the Graham road location moved over there.

I unluckily went to that location one time. No one else was there. I ordered my food from the drive thru. I pulled up to the window to pay and waited at least 15 minutes before i saw an employee. He opened the window and said "sorry about the wait, what did you order again?" I gave him my order again, and waited another 10 minutes. He came back and said they were out of corn so did I want a different side. I told him to forget it and left. Never went back, and everytime i drove by after that I noticed no customers.

After that i was convinced it wasn't an actual chicken business and was probably operating as a front for some kind of illegal activity.

I could write a book on Popeyes in BCS. My most recent incident was at the Hwy 6 location. Once again they were out of spicy chicken and there was only one customer there. The cashier asked the cook, "How long for spicy chicken"? He said 8 minutes. Ten minutes later I remind her I am still waiting. She ask the cook if the spicy chicken is ready. He says, "I thought you just wanted to know how long it took. You did not tell me to cook any."

At the old Graham road location they were out of chicken one night. They gave me directions of the 2818 location and said they had plenty of chicken there. True story. A chicken restaurant that had no chicken.

It can't compete with Chicken Express, but I've had good experiences at the one on 2818 and Villa Maria. If I can, though, I avoid going on a Tuesday because they get such a flood of customers and then you wait forever. They have plenty of people working there, and they're all working as hard as they can but they aren't working together. They should hire an efficiency expert to get the gears to mesh in the right way.

i thought they closed the one in cs cause they were selling meth or something out of the back...

Haha! My spouse is one of the least suspicious people I know and said the same thing. "It's almost like they don't WANT to sell you chicken..."

I had gone to the one on 2818 about once a year for the past 8 years. Every time I'd go I say I'll never go back, but after about a year I'd try it again. The last time broke the cycle. It was over a year ago so don't 100% remember the details. I think I was there for about 45 minutes. There were a few other customers during that time. One or two people got their food rather fast comparatively and a couple other people just left without food. It was a disaster. I only waited just to see how long it would actually take them to get me my food. After about 20 minutes I was committed to the long haul. I do always like the food though so I guess that's what kept me hoping it would be better each time.

How long does it take to fix a drive-thru? Last time I went to the Bryan one on 6, you had to drive around to the window and hope someone inside noticed that you were sitting there. I'm addicted to the mashed potatoes and gravy!

I've had decent service at both locations within the last couple of months. I usually have my fried chicken craving a couple of times every month and Popeyes is my go-to. The only problem I've had is them giving me regular instead of spicy.

Agreed. The ones we've eaten at out of town have been really good.

Yeah, my wife and I ordered two Baconators from Wendy's last week, and when we got home, they had NO bacon on them. So we went again a few nights later, complained, and asked for them to be sure to give us bacon. They gave us 6 pieces of bacon in a separate container, which I assumed (my fault, I know) was EXTRA bacon to make up for it. Instead, it was all the bacon we got. The burgers once again had no bacon on them, and they expected us putting 3 pieces each on our burgers ourselves made them Baconators.

Needless to say, we don't order the Baconator anymore. It's false advertising at this point.

They are terrible, ask for spicy chicken, they look at you like you ran over their dog.

This

I very rarely goto McDonald's.. Maybe 3-4 times a year.
Went to one off HWY 6 and briarcrest next to stripes Exxon... Was about 6:45am on Sunday.
Girl came on speaker at drive thru to take my order then 2 employees while on mic got into an argument. After a few seconds they realized they were on drive thru mic. Lady then " will that complete your order".
Yes drive around
I ordered egg mcmuffin and frappe with no whip cream and no drizzle.
I get to window and the girl hands me of course a frappe With whip cream and chocolate drizzle.. I told her should of been no whip cream.
She yells back at employed in back " HEY" then proceeds to cuss Under her lip and simply grabs a spoon , takes lid off and scrapes whip cream off into a trash can puts on same lid and hands it back to me.

Well alright

Not gona lie I do have a weakness for those frappes so I keep going back 3-4 times a week . But I kid you not I've experienced some variation of your story at least once every 2-3 trips there.

I took my father in law once to the old Popeyes on Graham Rd. They messed up every order they made and people kept returning food to be redone while we waited in line. When my father in law got to the front they asked for his order, he said, "You have not gotten any orders right yet so just go ahead and give me what you want." Everyone busted out laughing.

I guess I'm the only one who had a positive experience at the Popeyes on graham. I use to go in there every Tuesday, simply ordered two spicy Tuesday specials and always got my food fast. Of course this was all from about 2006-2011

I guess they keep giving me your chicken, because I order regular and they insist on giving me spicy every dang time! We should go together from now on, order what we want, switch and go home.
