Popeyes created a frenzy last August when it released its highly-talked-about chicken sandwich. The sandwich, both the classic and spicy variety, was so popular, it sold out just two weeks after being put on the menu.

As of Nov. 3, the sandwich is back at Popeyes, including the location at 610 Madison St. Demand for the surpassingly crispy delicacy clogged Madison faster than the arteries of people who consume it. 

Since its re-release, lines of cars queuing up for the Popeyes drive-thru have been spilling out onto Madison, which recently went from two lanes of traffic to one. 

The day the sandwich came back, police directed traffic outside the fast food joint, as cars waited in line to order for sometimes over half an hour. An officer directed traffic again on Nov. 7.
