See, this is a toss up. The Popeye's closest to me has their franchise owner on the corner in cowboy boots and hat 365 days a year holding a Jesus Saves sign. It's not that great. The tenders are fine, nothing special. CFA has the religious bullshit, but also good service and good food. It's a Bojangle's cajun chicken biscuit for me, though on any road trip.
Popeyes Chicken is crispier, especially when it comes to their chicken sandwiches. Chick fil a tastes more tender and organic even though their sandwiches look bland when they're unwrapped. I'd say chick fil a is better.
