New Merrifield Popeyes Too Busy to Answer Phones

After much anticipation from the Merrifield community, the new Popeyes is finally serving up the infamous chicken sandwiches alongside other menu items.

The location (2835 Gallows Road) opened last week. Nader Saleh, the location’s owner, said that business is booming and has been steady so far.

As of 12:05 p.m. today (Wednesday), the lunch rush line wrapped around the restaurant. Saleh stood behind the counter, yelling out names for pickup and assisting his staff to keep up with the rush.

The employees seemed to struggle to keep up with the orders, not to mention other duties like answering the phones.

Omar Nedjar, a Popeyes regular who said he eats there about two times per week, said he gets annoyed by the crowds that come with the infamous chicken sandwich.

“I’m not here for the sandwich. I’m here for the drumsticks,” he told Tysons Reporter.

The location is open until 11 p.m. every day.
