Popeye's: Thou hast forsaken me

Through the years, across a number of cities coast-to-coast and North-to-South and on several boards and forums, I have advocated for you and have occasionally suffered slings and arrows for it.

I WAS a fan of your red beans and rice.

(Yes, I know it's easy to fix from scratch at home, even easier with canned Bluerunner Creole red beans.)

Sometimes, though, I just wanted to pick up a big mess of red beans and rice and head home. I'm in Friendswood, near Abe's, Floyd's, Justin's, and, now, a new Frenchy's. You were always, though, my quick in/quick out.

Last night's red beans and rice pickup severed our ties. Thin, watery, little evidence of red beans, more like a soup.

I'll now either fix my own beans and rice, or go elsewhere. While I still like your spicy fried chicken, I can surpass it at home. If I'm in a hurry, well, there's now the new Frenchy's, which also has red beans and rice.

BTW: Never forgave you for eliminating the onion rings.
