Chicken fans in Barnsley will get to experience Popeyes® world-famous ‘shatter crunch’ for themselves once they get their hands on the mouth-watering menu available at the Drive-Thru, including the iconic Popeyes® Chicken Sandwich and original Southern biscuits and gravy. Popeyes® will also be serving up a brand-new breakfast menu, including the Big Breakfast Rolls [A sausage patty, egg, streaky bacon, and American cheese in a soft bun], a variety of breakfast muffins, cajun hash browns and their famous Louisiana buttermilk biscuits served with cinnamon sugar or Nutella®.

Plans for the new site include 88 seats indoors and 24 outside, a dual-ordering lane to reduce expected vehicle queues including two waiting bays, kerbside collection from six specifically designated bays when you order online via the Popeyes website and car park including three DDA parking spots for customers who would like to eat inside the restaurant.
