We had their daily special, it was okay, but not great.

We each had the two piece daily special. It was okay, but quite greasy. Make sure you ask for utensils, butter, napkins, etc., or you won't get them.

There wasn't a clean table in the place. And there was only one other customer in there besides us. The floor was dirty. The manager did come out and clean tables for us. The only reason we ate there was we did not feel like driving anywhere else. It has been a long time since I ate at a KFC... More

Ordered out and took it back to the hotel. Hit the spot! KFC has great food and I feel it is more nourishing than other fast food joints.

I got a meal to go and when I opened it to eat I was disappointed. Chicken looked and tasted like it had been sitting all day under a heat lamp. The biscuit that comes with the meal was smashed. Mashed potatoes were watery and the cole slaw tasted sour.

Service was slow, but food was good. Standard menu. Sorta a small town, but same old Kentucky Fried Chicken.

We stopped for supper after a long drive and found the employees to be friendly and helpful. The food was fresh and tasted great. The order was filled in a reasonable time. I would rate them a step above the average KFC.

This place was absolutely horrible! When we first arrived there we had to wait 10 minutes before we could even get our order placed because they were so understaffed. When we finally did get to place our order placed the woman behind the counter was very rude and not at all helpful. The whole place was filled with smoke and... More

Haven't been to a KFC for a while, but it was near our hotel so we had dinner. The man behind the counter was a bit rude, but the lady that replaced him was very nice, friendly and made our dinner nice.

A stop you can trust when you're traveling through. Wings are cooked to order, not served from a "warming" tray, so they are nice and fresh. Staff is friendly and efficient. Both meals we ordered were fresh and satisfying.
