Those who have been anxiously waiting for the return of the Popeyes chicken sandwich are finally getting their wish. 

Earlier this week, Popeyes announced that the sandwich would be coming back on Nov. 3. It was also revealed that it will be part of the full-time men, which will hopefully keep it from selling out again

Y’all…the sandwich is back Sunday, November 3rd. Then every day. 🤯🔥

With the day of reckoning is upon us, people flocked to Popeyes locations all around the country. It helps that the sandwich made its return on Sunday, which is the one day of the week that Chick-fil-A is closed on. As expected, social media was abuzz now that the country's favorite viral sandwich is back, hopefully for good.

Unfortunately it wasn't all celebratory, as video emerged of a customer getting irate over the sandwich in Harlem. 

Remember people, it's just chicken.
