Nothing could be better than warming up with some southern food on a cold January day in Barrie.

The city welcomed its first Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen just before Christmas when an outlet opened up in the plaza at the corner of Dunlop Street and Anne Street.

It all began more than 40 years ago with a single restaurant in New Orleans and has now grown to more than 2,000 outlets worldwide.

At the centre of the menu at Popeyes is what manager Harry Singh calls “authentic and honest-taking chicken.” It is served both spicy or non-spicy, boneless or bone-in, depending on the wishes of the customer.

Key to the taste is the fact Popeyes takes it time preparing the chicken, including marinating it for at least 12 hours and then hand-battering and hand-breading it on the premises.

The other menu staples are fish and shrimp, served in a variety of styles including in sandwiches, and eight sides, ranging from red beans and rice to fries to corn on the cob to Cajun poutine.

Popeyes is open Sunday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to midnight. For more information, call 705-733-3500, visit www.popeyeschicken.ca or check out the Facebook page. There is a large seating area but takeout and delivery are also available.
