21. Pecan pie
This should work really well in theory, but it always fails in execution. Always. If you want dessert at Popeyes, go for the fried pies.
20. Mac & cheese
This is the single most disappointing side in the whole restaurant. I know some of you will disagree with me, but I’m holding firm here. It’s not inedible, by any standards, especially if you like pasta drowned in cheese. But it sadly fails to live up to the "Louisiana Kitchen" branding.
19. Cole slaw
OK, so it’s a good idea to eat something involving vegetables with a meal, and slaw is generally a solid bet. And vegetables doused in butter and cream can be delicious. But this one is, to our taste, overly creamy and bland (read: absolutely loaded with mayo), which makes the whole eating-your-vegetables concept feel like a wash.
