I remember with KFC (aka, Kentucky Fried Chicken) used to be good.

It was good enough for the CIA in Goldfinger.

For me, it's Chick-fil-A. One just opened up a couple of weeks ago near my sister's house in Grand Rapids and I've been there. It was really good. They are extremely organized! There was a line out through the parking lot to the main road (CFA's entrance is off a side road behind a Bob Evans) and I was through there in less than a half hour. There were people stationed in the line with iPads taking orders and more people taking the money before the drive thru window. I would imagine it was moving smoothly inside as well even though the line was to the door. Onto the food, my sister and I had chicken nuggets (which are nothing like the nuggets other fast food places sell) which were yummy!

Of the other places, I've only had KFC. Zaxby's, Church's, and Raising Cane's don't have any locations within 200 miles of me (as far as I know). I've never had Popeye's despite there being at least one location in Grand Rapids (it's in a part of town that I don't get to often).

Given the fact that there are so many decent chicken wing options available in Western NY, I would rather blow my cholesterol readings eating good wings than visit any of the chain chicken restaurants.

I can't even remember the last time that I ate KFC...maybe when I was like 16?

I feel compelled to upgrade my opinion of KFC. I had previously been unaware of Chicken Littles, which are perfectly edible. They got nothing on Chick-fil-A*, though.



*I still don't know how to spell this. Apparently I can spell it now, but I had to Google the precise formatting.

VERY rarely, I'll eat at Raising Cain's, or PDQ (not sure if this one is only local or not). . .

but for years, since I discovered it while in Atlanta (and they have a location in Little Rock that I've eaten at, and one in downtown Austin that we eat at often). . my favorite is "Gus' World Famous Fried Chicken"

http://gusfriedchicken.com/


there's only one way they make it. . spicy as hell. . and it is so, so good.

the sides are great too (Potato Salad, corn, beans, slaw, Fried Green Tomatoes, Okra, Fried pickles, etc. . ), and the Chess Pie is among the best version I've ever had.

so yeah. . .Gus'

I'm assuming that this commercial is in the U.S. as well as in Canada, but there's this new commercial for KFC "supposedly" explaining why the word "Chicken" couldn't be used in years-gone-by commercials. Which of course, the chicken growers laugh at.

What I remember, is that KFC started sticking to the initials, because they wanted to avoid using the word FRIED. Which was a sort-of no-no in good food eating, way back when. Still is, I guess.

But, IMhO, this current commercial is crap. :Pr



P.S. ^ Gus' chicken looks awesome, Bert!

P.P.S. And we still like Church's the best, and avoid Chic-Fil-A like The (anti gay) Plague.

Although there are no longer any locations in New York City, I miss Bojangles. Great seasoning.

Probably KFC - I think I haven't been to two of those mentioned in the list. Chick-Fil-A's sandwiches are pretty good though, wouldn't call it marvelous fare but it's still a cut above. Popeye's is pretty nice, too. :)

Agreed. I haven't been in a Chik-Fil-A since the incident.
