I stop in here for lunch a couple of times a month, the service is always fantastic, and the food is always good.

After lots of driving, we just wanted to grab a quick bite and head to our hotel. The buffet seemed to have a lot to offer, but it was just ok at best. However, we did request more Chrissy chicken, and the gave us just what we requested.

I thought I would check out my local KFC. I normally go into a fast food establishment before I use their drive-through. I am glad I did. I soon as I walked in I noticed that the walls and trim were caked in dirt in grime. This place has not been cleaned in a while. The food on the "buffet"... More

Based on two visits in 2014, I would say the KFC chain certainly has no hiring or training process like McDonald's for example. Food presentation suggests no quality standards for purchase or preparation. Most items were overcooked and/or re-warmed from previous days of operation. Meat items were somewhat better, but not tender or moist as one would expect. This chain... More

Had lunch here with my family today. We left before even finishing our food because we were so disgusted. We all bought the buffet. The food was old and buffet empty, the service was rude and extremely unprofessional. Yelling to each other from across the restaurant, personal conversation. The restaurant was extremely dirty. It looked like it hadn't been swept... More

I won't eat here again. The place is dirty. The food is so greasy I feel like I have to take a shower after. If you don't want hardening of your arteries then don't eat here. If they cleaned it up and offered a healthier selection then they might stay in business.

I've never had any complaints with the food, their five dollar (two piece and sides) box is a great deal. But I never come here for lunch or when I'm in a hurry, it takes too long to get my food. The drive thru isn't quicker than going in the restaurant

Ordered a family meal and got 8 pieces of chicken and 2 sides for over $21, without any drinks. So as far as fast food goes, it's pretty expensive. The mashed potatoes and mac-n-cheese were both very artificial, very processed and artificial. Can't wait until the Zaxby's is completed right across the street, I'd much rather have that over KFC.

My husband just got back and we have a bucket of chicken with 2 breasts and the rest is wings. My husband asked for mac'n'cheese and the guy at the counter just quips "were out". Two words. Probably the only two he knows. We go to KFC as a treat once in awhile and this is no treat. There are... More
