Listen: California restaurant secretly turns to Popeyes for its fried chicken

SAN RAFAEL, CA - OCTOBER 30: A bucket of KFC Extra Crispy fried chicken is displayed October 30, 2006 in San Rafael, California. KFC is phasing out trans fats and plans to use zero trans fat soybean oil for cooking of their Original Recipe and Extra Crispy fried chicken as well as other menu items. KFC expects to have all of its 5,500 restaurants in the U.S. switched to the new oil by April 2007. (Photo Illustration by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

A restaurant named Sweet Dixie Kitchen reportedly has a fried chicken secret: buying Popeyes chicken and serving it to customers who order certain items on their menu.

The brunch spot in Long Beach, California was outed by a diner posting a review on Yelp. In response, the owner said, “We PROUDLY SERVE Popeyes spicy tenders- the best fried chicken anywhere and from New Orleans- which are delivered twice a day.”

Is it acceptable for restaurants to buy other food and pass it off as their own? And can you really make money when you’re paying for someone else’s chicken? Doc’s main takeaway on today’s show was that he, Kal and Kris should open a fast-food joint together.
