Popeyes Secret Menu

Last Updated on January 31, 2023 by Jim Edwards


Popeyes History

Popeyes is an American fast food restaurant that focuses on delicious fried chicken. Popeyes was founded in 1972 in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is currently a subsidiary of Restaurant Brands International, a Toronto based company.

Popeyes is one of the largest fast food chicken restaurants in the United state, second only to KFC.

We have to be honest, the Popeyes secret menu items are less exciting than many other secret menus like the In-N-Out Secret Menu – which have a lot more secrets and options. Most of these are flavor “hacks” – but if you are a Popeyes fan you will still love them. And they will allow you to experience new variety from the existing menu.

Naked Chicken

If you are at Popeyes and want a healthier option, just ask for it “naked.”

So, this is one of the easiest ways to cut your carbs, sodium and calories.

Sweet & Spicy Red Beans and Rice

If you are a fan of rice and beans and like some spice and sweetness, you are sure to love this menu hack.

To order – ask for a honey packet and hot sauce when you order red beans and rice. We suggest you start out with one packet of each for a perfectly balanced sweet and spicy balance of flavors. Then if you prefer it more sweet, or more spicy, add another packet of honey, or another packet of the hot sauce.

This sounds simple – and it is – but it will surprise you with how much of a flavor improvement this is!

Cajun Sparkle

Once you try it, it will change how you eat at Popeye’s because it packs a flavor punch and accentuates your food flavors.  Many customers refer to it as a magical or fairy dust.
