Popeyes Thanksgiving Turkey
The Louisiana-based chain is bringing its popular Thanksgiving dinner staple, the Cajun Style Turkey, back to a store near you.
“Hand-rubbed and infused with zesty Louisiana-style seasonings,” the Cajun Style Turkey comes precooked, so all you need to do is thaw, reheat, and enjoy. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
For the ultimate fast-food feast, pair your delicious bird with Popeyes’ traditional Southern sides including mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, biscuits, and more. Don’t count on the Cajun rice and green beans though, those have been gone from the menu for nearly a year. (No, we’re still not over it.)
The Popeyes Cajun Style Turkey will be available at participating US locations starting Monday October 18th—which gives you plenty of time to figure out where you’re going to hide the packaging from your guests.
Customers can pre-order from their local restaurant by calling or visiting in person. Turkeys are received frozen and fully cooked. You must thaw it completely prior to reheating. Prices vary by location.
And don’t worry, your secret’s safe with us.
Popeyes Louisiana Chicken is bringing back its “fan favorite Thanksgiving staple” ahead of the holiday.
The fast-food New Orleans-style chicken chain confirmed to USA TODAY that it will start taking preorders of its Cajun Style Turkeys on Oct. 18 at participating restaurants nationwide. Customers will need to call or visit their local restaurants to reserve a bird, while supplies last.
Prices vary by location since many restaurants are owned by franchises. Last year, the turkey cost $39.99 at many locations.
Popeyes said its turkey is hand-rubbed and infused with “zesty Louisiana-style seasonings” and comes precooked. The turkeys need to be rethawed before reheating.

The turkeys are usually available to order in advance through Thanksgiving, and consumers can select their pickup date. But since supplies are limited, some locations can sell out ahead of the holiday.
According to a survey by Butterball, more than 90% of consumers plan to celebrate Thanksgiving and are looking forward to a traditional dinner. But because of the Delta variant, a third of consumers are planning for smaller gathers again.
The survey found 74% of hosts intend to purchase a turkey that is at least 12 pounds and that 61% of consumers are willing to upgrade to a larger turkey in order to have a turkey on their table.
With food prices continuing to increase amid worker shortages, supply-chain bottlenecks and extreme weather, consumers should plan to shop for their holiday meals early. Last year, it was harder to find smaller turkeys because of the increase in small gatherings.
