Restaurant serves chicken from Popeye's. Matt O'Donnell reports during Action News at 4:30 a.m. on October 19, 2017.

When you pay $13 for chicken and biscuits, you are probably expecting something a little fancier than fast food.

But that is exactly what customers at a California cafe received on their plates.

A Yelp review criticized the Sweet Dixie Kitchen for using chicken strips from Popeyes.

Owner Kimberly Sanchez freely admits to serving up the chain's spicy tenders, admitting she doesn't even have a fryer at the restaurant.

Customers responding to the Yelp review mainly complained about the markup on the menu, and the fact that they were not really eating local.
