Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen has an application coming to the Elk Grove Planning Commission for it’s first location in the City of Elk Grove. The chain which has 3 locations in South Sacramento, specializes in Southern style chicken and seafood.
The proposed location is 9679 East Stockton Blvd, across the street from Dutch Bros and the recently approved Blue Wave Car Wash. The restaurant will have a drive through, that would be open until 10 pm on most days, with some days staying open until 11 pm and 12 am for special events. The project could add more traffic to an already congested area, that includes an on and off ramp to highway 99, just south of Elk Grove Blvd.
Part of the approval of the Blue Wave Car Wash application the Elk Grove City Council voted to approve in July includes a restructuring of the existing drive through for Dutch Bros to alleviate the issue of traffic backing up onto East Stockton Blvd. Dutch Bros recently opened a second location, near Sheldon Road and Elk Grove – Florin Road. That appears to have helped reduce traffic at their location near 99.
