“Worst of All KFC's”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Every so often we get a craving for KFC, which in Ledgewood also includes the faux-seafood menu choices from Long John Silver's. Unfortunately, for convenience, the closest one to us is this one, just east of the old Ledgewood Circle on Route 46 -- it would take us considerably longer to travel west to Hackettstown or farther east to Rockaway.

In any case, this Ledgewood KFC is always unorganized, from the managers to the cooks to the counter staff. They don't communicate well with one another, often don't have (or it's never close to ready) what's on the menu, and it's generally not as clean as other KFC's throughout what is generally a fairly well-respected nationwide franchise. Another bad thing: I think this particular KFC goes heavier with the salt than the others -- they usually mess up our favorite chicken choice, the extra crispy. For some odd reason, this place is always a disappointment.

If nothing else, this KFC should at least fix up its parking lot. How many years have all those potholes been there (I say potholes, but they're more like craters -- a decade now? -- and making the circle around the place is like navigating an obstacle course). If your overall service and food quality are going to be below par, then at least don't also ruin people's shock absorbers when they decide to drive over to come see you.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Stopped here for a quick lunch while I was on the road. It was either this or KFC, which is in the same building. It was average. I had some fried clams, which seemed a little greasy. I was not impressed with this.

“Same As Eating At KFC”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

This Long John Silver’s is a combined quick service seafood franchise with KFC. It is located inside an old KFC building. You can order from Long John Silver’s menu board or from KFC’s menu board. If you really want to experience what it’s like to eat at Long John Silver’s, then I recommend you go to a real Long John Silver’s restaurant and not a combined franchise. At this location the menu was typical, but they didn’t offer the new crispy Panko Shrimp special that was advertised on TV and at other locations. I’ve been to other Long John Silver’s before and this one was like eating at Kentucky Fried Chicken.
