(WAFB) - One California restaurant was reportedly caught red-handed using Popeye's fried chicken as their own, but the restaurant offered up a lengthy response in return.
The issue started with a Yelp review of Sweet Dixie Kitchen in Long Beach, California where a customer recognized the chicken as being from Popeye's, even claiming he and his friends saw the Popeye's box brought into the kitchen, and called the restaurant out for it on the review site.
Then, owner of the restaurant, Kimberly Sanchez, issued a response on Facebook, saying that 95 percent of their food is made from scratch, but that they do outsource various pre-made ingredients for some menu items.
Many more reviews have come in on Yelp since then, chastising the restaurant for selling Popeye's chicken for more than Popeye's charges and for not saying that's where it comes from on their menu.
Some of the reviews can be read below:
In Sanchez's response, she says that many restaurants use products they don't make in-house, but do not say that on their menus either.
The restaurant appears to have changed their description on Facebook, which originally said they make everything in-house. The description now makes note of that "darn chicken that we bring in." The full description reads:
