A man from Tennessee who sues Popeyes because his infamous chicken sandwich has been used has brought his case to court.

Craig Barr is looking for $ 5,000 in damages from the fast food chain, partly due to his time wasted searching for the coveted sandwich, News channel 9 reports.

Barr submitted the paperwork in August when the restaurant was unable to meet his order request.

He appeared in court Monday with David Barry, a representative for Popeyes.

Popeye & # 39; s first offered the sandwich, which consists of a baked chicken fillet between a brioche sandwich with mayonnaise and pickles, for a limited time on August 12.

A week later, the popularity of sandwiches on social media increased.

The chain had expected to have enough for a six-week supply, but was up within two weeks, Newsweek said.

& # 39; You are going to one location, they are like & # 39; come back tomorrow & # 39 ;, said Barr WRCB.

He claims that the sandwich was not well stocked in the restaurants.

Aside from the menu issues, he also complains for damage to his car from the restaurant parking lot.

Popeyes has relaunched the sandwich on August 12 (above), boasting its simple ingredients: chicken, pickles, and a brioche sandwich. It was striking that they were sold out nationwide, including inventory that would last until the end of September

& # 39; There is one place (in the parking lot) where your foot can go all the way down into the sewer, & # 39; Barr said to the WRCB. & # 39; I mean, you know someone can get hurt. & # 39;

Barr, who brought photos to the court this week, is expected back for his next performance in January.

As for the sandwich, Popeyes plans to permanently return it on Sunday.

Barr changed the prospect of not getting his food selection into a depressing episode.

& # 39; I can't be happy; I have this sandwich in mind. I can not think straight. It just consumes you, & # 39; Barr told the Chattanooga Times Free Press in August. & # 39; It is totally deceptive. Who has no more chicken? everyone has struck them. & # 39;

He still has to try the sandwich.

But in a desperate attempt to finally taste the popular chicken sandwich, Barr claims that he & # 39; scammed & # 39; was after he handed $ 25 to a man who put the sandwich on Craigslist, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported.

The trial date is set on January 8.
