When It’s Cheaper to Eat at the Fancy Restaurant Than the Fast Food
Prices are going up everywhere. Everything is expensive. It's not just one thing, it's everything.
Meat is expensive, eggs are expensive, milk is expensive, and apparently chicken is super expensive.
I was doing what I do when I have a few minutes of free time and flipping through Facebook. Then I see it, I see a receipt that was posted from Popeye's. It was for a couple of combo meals and, oh my gosh the cost of those meals were astronomical, $17 and $18. That is for a combo meal. A COMBO MEAL!!!!
I mean look:
I was floored looking at the receipt. I know the cost of everything has gone up but dang, that's a lot of money for fast-food chicken. As I read through the comments, I got a good laugh.
R u kidding? That is ridiculous. Red Lobster is sounding reasonable.
You can get a GOOD. meal for what you can get fast food for!!
Dayum that's high dollar chicken. Used to feed family for $20
I didn't know they opened a Popeye's inside the airport movie theater
Those are just a few of the responses to this outrageous receipt. Now to be fair, this was a receipt from a truck stop Popeye's in Nevada, but it's only a matter of time before this is a reality everywhere.
Just think a few years ago you could get a combo meal and just about every fast food place for around $5-$6 total. Now, you're lucky if you leave the drive-thru without paying less than $10. Unfortunately, we are only going to see prices rise instead of drop in the next few months.
