Let the chicken war begin: WKYC's Ray Strickland taste-tests Popeyes' new chicken sandwich

Is Popeyes' new sandwich better than Chick-Fil-A? Many local diners say yes.

CLEVELAND — The battle over who has the best chicken sandwich in America has come to Cleveland. 

Popeyes has introduced a new chicken sandwich. Some have been quick to compare it to Chick-fil-A's signature fried chicken sandwich.

On Thursday, the Popeyes restaurant at Carnegie and E. 71st held a 'soft launch' for the chicken sandwich. More than 500 were sold. Several diners we spoke to gave the sandwich high praise. 

The sandwich will cost you $3.99 or if you want the combo, it will run you $5.99 (plus tax, of course).
