“Finally, Real KFC Chicken!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

After 5 years of disappointing chicken, they seem to have finally become a real KFC. When they moved to the new building, thought it would be better but it wasn't, til we tried, yet again, 2 weeks ago. It actually looked busy so we went in & ordered a bucket. It was great - real KFC coating (you could see it under the skin) & the pieces were good sized, not the almost game hen size they have been. Tried again today & it was still real KFC chicken. So happy. Will make a point of going there regularly from now on as long as it stays this way!

“...understaffed...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Saturday evening 7pm chaos. 2 people working, obviously doing their very best to keep up. The line up at the front counter was 'knowingly' ignored for approximately 15 minutes while the young lady dealt with a multitude of drive-thru customers. Whilst doing all this she was also having to help package meals. Very polite service when she returned to the counter but seriously: not fair to anyone. INCLUDING the employees. I witnessed two people leave before ordering as the wait was simply unreasonable.

“Where's the KFC coating?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Always loved KFC. Moved here 3 years ago & 7 out of 10 times - not good. No KFC taste or sign of the coating, seems like a bit of flour on the skin & no spices, also chicken is not juicy just greasy. Once in a while good but not enough times to want to go back very often.
