Popeyes vs Chick-fil-A: Southerners (try) to settle the great chicken sandwich debate

Chick-fil-A fans firmly have it ingrained in their minds – and stomachs – that the chicken chain is closed on Sundays.

But the Atlanta-based fast-food chain apparently forgot when it sent an email to some of its loyalty members this week.

“Calling all sandwich lovers,” the email that also promoted the Chick-fil-A One program said, “Some prefer it grilled, others fancy the original. No matter which Chick-fil-A sandwich you love, order yours on November 3 for National Sandwich Day.”

This year, the made-up food holiday held annually on Nov. 3 falls on a Sunday, which also happens to be the day that rival Popeyes’ chicken sandwich – the one that prompted this summer’s Chicken Sandwich War – returns to restaurants.

Chicken Sandwich War: Popeyes announces return date of its chicken sandwich and takes a dig at Chick-fil-A

Another email followed Thursday with the subject, “Well … this is awkward.”

“We recently sent an email that included a message about National Sandwich Day, which naturally we were very excited about,” the email reads. “We didn’t realize it falls on Sunday when we are closed. We apologize for the confusion and hope to see you soon (Monday-Saturday).”

In a statement sent to USA TODAY, Chick-fil-A poked fun at its own mistake.

“The cows sometimes get over-eager on their quest for self-preservation,” Chick-fil-A said in the statement. “They have been reminded that Sundays are off limits.”

Popeyes took a dig at Chick-fil-A earlier in the week by announcing its chicken sandwich would return on a day the competition was closed.

In a short YouTube video, a highway sign showing Popeyes and Chick-fil-A’s names is updated to add the words “open Sunday” under Popeyes, next to the “closed Sunday” under Chick-fil-A.

NYY Steak (Coconut Creek)
Posted on August 11th, 2015

***** NYY Steak, (Seminole Casino Coconut Creek) 5550 Northwest 40th Street, Coconut Creek, Florida 33073, (954) 997-6700.

Way-back on 2/15/12 Jeff Eats told you guys about NYY Steak located in the Seminole Casino Creek Coconut Creek- in Coconut Creek. That “review” is down-below…

Long story short, since that “review” was published, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have eaten in NYY something like 5-times, with the latest “outing”- being last night. For what it’s worth, all of the meals that Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have had, were all right on the money!

Last night, I got to thinking that Jeff Eats rarely if ever hears- NYY Steak mentioned in conversations about South Florida’s best steak-joints. No ifs, ands or buts- the 26oz bone-in-ribeye with grilled onions and French fries- that I had last night and didn’t come close to finishing- could easily be matched against the best of breed down here in sunny South Florida-same story for Mrs. Jeff Eats’ pan seared snapper!

Anyway,

Jeff Eats just wanted to mention NYY Steak to you guys, again…

It’s a very good steak joint!

NYY Steak (Coconut Creek)
Posted on February 15th, 2012

***** NYY Steak, (Seminole Casino Coconut Creek) 5550 Northwest 40th Street, Coconut Creek, Florida 33073, (954) 997-6700.

Go figure!

One of the best-“upscale steakhouses” in South Florida is located at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek in- Coconut Creek…That’s right, the casino where you-gotta wear an oxygen mask because the cigarette smoke is so brutal—as part of a recently completed $150,000,000 renovation/expansion has opened an absolutely georgeous looking steakhouse with fabulous food and service. You can check www.seminolecoconutcreekcasino.com for menu/prices/photos. By the way, NYY is a joint venture–Seminole Indians/New York Yankees (there is another NYY at Yankee Stadium).

NYY…New York Yankees, get it? All kinds, of New York Yankee black/white photos, autographs…no dark wood–or dim lights here…but rather, a great looking open kitchen, light oak woods, bright lights, plenty of glass. Like I said before, an absolutely gorgeous looking joint.

When you check NYY’s menu, try not to get sticker-shock…no question about it- that $51.75 24oz bone in ribeye is “high” even for an upscale steakhouse–Now, I maybe going out on a limb here, but I think- that casino-joints like NYY get a ton of customers using their casino “PLAYER’S CLUB” rewards/points to pay the bill. If I’m right—the restaurant can charge more than what most folks would consider “normal”- because many customers aren’t using real-money. So, if you go there, I think you will find that many of the “diners” are eating on-the-arm.

At this juncture of the discussion, let me tell you that NYY looks totally out of place at the Seminole Casino. Nothing for nothing, but the Seminole Casino isn’t in this boy’s opinion–an upscale looking property. Now, there may-be something more developing at the Seminole Casino that’s gonna get it looking more like the Hard Rock operation in Hollywood-so NYY may eventually make sense, but for right now, NYY looks like a fish out of water. Personally, I don’t see non-casino players making special plans/reservations to eat at NYY, despite the fact that its food is absolutely dynamite.

A recent dinner had me “doing” the aforementioned 24oz ribeye, 28oz porterhouse ($54.75), veal chop milanase ($44.50), roast chicken ($28.50), lemon pepper halibut ($31.50), steak fries ($9.50), lobster mac & cheese ($11). Every item was delicious. On the service front, excellent without the “snotty” know-it-all attitude you find at many upscale steakhouses.

There are two ways to play NYY Steak. You can gamble your heart out…and accumulate points to spend or you can just fork over cash or your credit card at the end of the meal.

NYY Steak is a homerun…pun intended!

NYY Steak is open Monday, Thursday-Sunday 5pm-11pm. The joint is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Jac-Ron Enterprises Presents “Super Talent Showcase” (Kings Point Delray Beach- Delray Beach)

Posted on October 30th, 2019 · Deals Delray Beach Music/Events/Other · No Comments »

This article first posted on 4/11/19.
Just checked the Kings’ Point box-office (kingspointdelray.com) and there are a handful of tickets still-available for the “Super Talent Showcase”…so if you wanna go, I’m kinda thinking that it’s time to make your move on the ticket front!

Posted on April 11th, 2019

* Jac-Ron Enterprises Presents “Super Talent Showcase”…

Got something terrific for you guys to checkout- Jac-Ron Enterprises Presents “Super Talent Showcase”- Tuesday, January 7th, 2020 -7:00 pm, at Kings Point Delray Beach, 7000 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33446. Tickets: kingspointdelray.com, Box Office- (561) 499-3335.

The Skinny:

In a nutshell, Jac-Ron Enterprises (one of Florida’s premier talent-booking agencies) “produces” a show which features-showcases “acts” from all over the country- Jac-Ron is looking to book these acts in various Florida venues in 2020 & 2021. Much of the audience consists of comped- Country Club/ Casino/ Festival/ Residential Community/ Theater/ Resort/ Cruise Ship/ Event- talent buyers. The balance of the audience is made-up of guys like you and me- who get to buy tickets- priced at $10.00 Residents • $13.00 Non-Residents.

Over the years, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have attended a number of “showcases” and I gotta tell you guys, some of the talent which we got to “preview” blew us away and went on to multi-date bookings here in Florida and in some instances all over the United States. For sure we saw a number of “clunkers” but the winners far outweighed the weaker acts…

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are gonna be there- we have no idea as to the names of the singers/ dancers/ bands/ impressionists/ comedians/ magicians who are scheduled to appear- all I can tell you- is that Jac-Ron Enterprises books top notch acts. Just to give you the names of some of the showcased acts we’ve seen in the past…The Bronx Wanderers, Rocky & The Rollers, Shadows Of The 60’s, Comedians Tom Cotter/ Jeff Norris/ Fred Rubino, Bobby Brooks Wilson, The Motowners- all of which are currently playing dates all over the United Staes.

Just a taste (The Motowners)…

If you’re into potluck dinners- you’ll love Jac-Ron Enterprises Presents “Super Talent Showcase”…

* Just checked the box-office- kingspointdelray.com and tickets for RESIDENTS just went on sale! Tickets for NON-RESIDENTS go on sale July 1, 2019 at 9am.

Kings Point-Delray Beach
7000 Atlantic Avenue
Delray Beach, Florida 33446
Tickets: kingspointdelray.com
Box Office- (561) 499-3335

One last thought, Jac-Ron Enterprises Presents “Super Talent Showcase” was 100% SOLD OUT in 2019- so if you wanna go, you Residents and Non Residents now know when-what you gotta do in the Ticket Department!
