Carrollton Oasis

Among the places newly reopened amid the formerly flooded helter-skelter near Mid-City is the Popeye’s at Carrollton and Earhart.

Far as I know, the only Popeye’s available in Orleans Parish has been the one on St. Charles (though the one of Magazine might also be open now). The addition of the one on Carrollton adds another working business to the many that are newly reopened near hard-hit Xavier University.

TBK and I stopped for some fried chicken, red beans and rice at lunch today. The biscuits were (as always) puuuuh-fect and the service as reasonably good, given what I’m sure is a new staff. I say stop by and welcome them back.

    I believe it is the third Popeye’s to reopen in Orleans Parish. The Popeye’s on General DeGaulle has been open since last Fall. And yes, believe it or not, a part of the population (I believe 30 – 50 thousand) of Orleans Parish exists on the west side of the river.

    The Popeyes on Magazine is open. I know because a few months back, I was riding on the Magazine bus in the evening, and realized that we had been at one stop for a while. I looked around (it was after work and I was tired, and I had zoned out) and realized that we were in front of the Popeyes and that the driver and some of the passengers were in line for chicken.

    There are four in Orleans and I believe the order is/was:

    St. Charles
    Gen De Gaulle
    Carrollton (and Earhart)

    The one further down South Carrollton is not open.

    I didn’t forget Westbank. I just thought that one was just inside the Jeff Parish line. I’ll study up on the geoprahy a little tighter. Sorry.

    I think Jack needs to take Covingtongirl to one of these fine Popeye’s dining establishments for her welcome home dinner when she gets back from L.A. (Note the periods)

    Didn’t the one on Canal open and then close cause it got all burnt up? Or did it not open at all?

    Anywho, I’m so glad another location is open. The one or two in the Metry area just don’t do it right.

    Are any of these the kind with no drive thru and no seating inside? In my rather humble (or stupid or misinformed, lol) opinion, those are the only REAL popeyes

    Yeah — the one on Canal was indeed opened for a while (we ate there during Carnival week), but it burned.
