BUFFALO, NY-- A popular fried-chicken restaurant has officially opened its doors in WNY.

Dozens of folks lined up inside and outside the new Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen that opened on Elmwood Avenue in the Home Depot plaza Tuesday.

Buffalo Police are directing traffic to ease the congestion on Elmwood Avenue.

It's the first time in 25 years that the fast food chicken chain has had a location here in western New York.
