The war between fast food chains for the title of best chicken sandwich is not over. This year, more restaurants have joined the fray.

The Chicken Sandwich War began in August 2019 when Popeyes released their chicken sandwich to win the Chick-fil-A title as the chain with the best chicken sandwich.

A craze erupted on the internet as thousands of people flooded restaurants in Popeyes to sample the new sandwich. Drive-thru lines stretched past restaurants and on the streets, with places experiencing a shortage of chicken sandwiches locally and across the country.

Now Zaxby’s and McDonald’s have gone to war. McDonald’s released several variations of the chicken sandwich in February, and Zaxbys recently released their signature chicken sandwich to all stores in early March.

As a native of Gainesville, the self-proclaimed Chicken Capital of the World, I took it upon myself to try all four sandwiches to see which really is the best. I ordered the sandwiches as they come, with no modifications, and decided to stay away from the spicy versions to make sure things didn’t get too complicated.

I will rate sandwiches according to three main categories: taste, presentation and value on a scale of 1 to 5.
