One man is so angry that he's suing.

Craig Barr of East Ridge, Tennessee filed a summons accusing the restaurant of false advertising and deceptive business practices.

He says he drove around to several locations only to be told there was no chicken sandwich available at each of them

Barr claims he even responded to a Craigslist ad posted by someone who said they worked at Popeyes and was selling the sandwiches under the table for $24.

He says he paid the money, but never got his sandwich.

That ad is no longer online, and police say they haven't had any reports on it.

The county gave Barr a court date of Oct. 28.

He's suing for $5,000.
