harland sanders cafe, orinigal KFC, put in several and came up 'couldn't find'. TA needs to have it so you can click on 'review' on the page where you found. I've had this happen a number of times and absurd. Makes me not want to use the site and surely not write reviews.

Original Kfc

Take a step back in time and visit the original Kentucky fried chicken. It was really neat to see the kitchen where it all started plus a lot of old memorabilia. Bring the family for a visit and have a nice meal too.

This is the original Kentucky Fried Chicken location. I dislike the fact that The Colonel and my grandfather went to the same church and at the church socials my grandfather's chicken was always eaten before "the Colonel's" chicken was eaten.

This was just your regular K.F.C. with a drive-thru, but attached was a little interesting history on How Colonel Sanders started his business, owned a motel next door etc. The kids enjoyed taking a picture with the statue of the Colonel sitting on a bench...haha... It was a nice place to walk around and stretch our legs in the midst... More

I typically do not eat kfc but was in the area for business and had to try it, the restaurant serves just the usual kfc menu items and I was expecting more because this is where it all began however I thought the food was above average for a kfc. The museum and memorabilia is interesting enough for a visit.

This is just your regular KFC food. I was expecting more, the area is kinda dirty & building rundown. It was a nice day out so it would have been nice if they had an outdoor eating area.

I was expecting something more than the local KFC and was disappointed. I thought perhaps the chicken meal might be served restaurant or cafe style rather than fast food style. And I thought the quality might be a notch better. It wasn't. The mashed potatoes looked and tasted fake. My husband's chicken thighs were all fat. My chicken breast was... More

The original Kentucky Fried Chicken! The food is the same, but somehow it’s a lot better when it’s the original Original! The museum is part of the restaurant. A fun way to have some lunch and get a little Americana history. Glad we went!

We saw a sign for this place while we were driving through the area, we needed gas and figured we should make a stop there to check it out. Basically it is a Kentucky Fried Chicken with a museum in it with KFC history. So the food is exactly what you can expect out of any quality KFC. The service... More

Not your typical KFC. It has rooms set up from the original restaurant with original furniture. It has lots of memorabilia about Colonel Sanders and his marketing ideas. My husband said this was the best KFC he every had.
