Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen expected to open this fall

Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, known for its Cajun menu and Louisiana-style fried chicken, is expected to open in Mission Viejo this fall.

The 2,360-square-foot eatery with a drive-through replaced the Mission Viejo Rentals building and storage yard that was demolished late last year. Located near Sonic Burgers at 23462 Los Alisos Boulevard, the fast-food restaurant will be the chain’s first south Orange County location.

Stay tuned here for updates or visit for more information.

Love that chicken at Popeye's. This is great. Right now, we have to drive up to Santa Ana to get Popeye's (it's worth the trip). Cannot wait until this one opens.

Would it be so much to tell us WHEN it will be open? How will I explain this to Colonel Sanders? He doesn't like betrayal.

The City received word that the owner of the new Popeye’s is experiencing delays with electrical systems. They are working with SCE to try and finalize the work and schedule the appropriate inspections. The new projected timeframe for the grand opening is 3-4 weeks. Hang tight Mission Viejo!

Be sure to put fried chicken livers on the menu just like they do in the deep south Popeyes! Legit is the only way.
