@ About, The store & Staff @
I often visit KFC for lunch and dinner, and generally speaking their stores are quite clean and tidy. Their stores have plenty of tables and there are self serve counters in most stores now. The self serve screens are easy to use and you have a multi-selection layout where you can add or remove from your order. When you have finished placing your order you dont wait anymore than 3 minutes for your food, and sometimes much less time than that. The counter is uncluttered and very occasionally, they will do special deals and discounts on their food.
Value for money where the smaller burgers are concerned, is a little pricey because a mini fillet for £1.20 is expensive considering the size of it. there is little meat in the burger. Larger burgers such as the Zinger and the full sized fillet burgers are reasonably priced and dont seem to be getting smaller. They have thick bits of meat in them and taste fantastic. The staff are friendly and will ask you if you'd like to go large or add a side to your order but there is no hard sell pressure.
There are also counters where you can get your own condiments so you only need to take what you need rather than being given an arm full of serviettes like most fast food places do. Even the toilets are clean, they dont smell disgusting and are normally stocked up with lots of soap. I say normally because on one occasion there was no soap unfortunately.
@ The Service, The food @
What i appreciate at KFC compared to other fast food restaurants is that you can put your own salt on your fries. You can also ask staff to leave off certain ingredients at the counter. For example if you don't want lettuce they wont let the lettuce even touch your burger because they make the burger there and then, rather than make it and take it back out again.
Their burgers are not dripping with grease and oozing with fat but their crispy coating can be a little greasy in fillet burgers. They do like to fully cover the burgers in a thick coating and occasionally you will get a burger which has chunks of coating with crispy and crunchy bits in places but normally like this sort of thing. They have a wide range of healthy foods too such as salads, coleslaw and corn on the cob.
@ Overall @
KFC Is a very family friendly place to eat and i love their food. Sure some things are a little pricey but they are good quality. Fast food is never healthy but the burgers are not dripping with grease. Excellent fast food company. Their stores are well layed out and there are plenty of tables and chairs.
Summary: Top quality fast food restruant
