I'm in St Petersburg, my hotel is close to a KFC, I'm having cravings for it, it might just be too hard to resist. Most of the time I'm completely uninterested in KFC but sometimes I just get this irresistible urge to eat it, it can be very satisfying in a greasy kind of way.

Does anyone else like it?

Sure I like KFC.

When I get my retirement check from Yum Brands, or the dividend check from my stock.

My personal opinion, which didn't make me popular when I was at the RSC in Louisville, was that chicken on the bone is a dying food concept in the US.

However, it continues to grow in many countries. Still the most popular food concept in China by a huge margin, and doing very, very well in several other countries.

Yep, I admit it. It's my favorite guilty pleasure...and I only allow myself a visit two or three times a year. I know it's bad for me and it's terribly greasy, but I love it.

No, I prefer just about any other fast food chain over KFC. I like beef more, plus the way that the suppliers for KFC treat the chicken (as seen in several videos) doesn't make me want to go there.

Rather make my own. Cooked some last night, totally delicious. Marinated in salted buttermilk for several hours before being rolled in spicy seasoned flour and fried to perfection. Yum!

Love it.
And I know what you mean, it's a good guilty pleasure for me. Don't eat it that much really but when it is available I'll jump at it.

And so you know just how sick I am: I even really like the awful Double Down, which is essentially a horrifying heart attack in a wrapper..... again not something I eat often at all..... but YUMMM!
(And yes, I am one of those horrible people that are still healthy and active, with good cholesterol levels and not over weight. Yeah I know annoying)

I call these my "pregnant cravings", and I get them for all types of food/drink....and when I get that craving, stay the hell outta my way because I need to satisfy it LOL! I get them for:
>KFC
>White Castle
>Wendy's Frosty & French Fries (I know, weird, but it's salty AND sweet, i dunno, it really is a pregnant craving LOL!)
>Eggplant Rollatini
>Combos (the pretzel ones with the cheese inside)
>Black Jelly Beans (I keep a stash of those in the house though since I can really only find them around Easter LOL)
>Baby Ruth bar
.....and the list goes on, no wonder I am a fat ass. Luckily these cravings only hit once in a blue moon and I eat VERY healthy the rest of the time!!!

I never get cravings for it, but if I'm on a road-trip and there is one on the highway, I'll stop in for lunch.

With that said, I can't stand the chicken! At least not the chicken on the bone. Something about the skin just grosses me out. The only things I order are the Spicy Big Crunch (before they discontinued it here and replaced it with this "Zinger" thing), one of those grilled wraps, or popcorn chicken. I'm not a big fries guy, but on the rarest of occasions I'll get a small fries and gravy (guilty pleasure).

This I would do as well, amongst other things because my stomach probably wouldn’t accept KFC.

In spite of this I once ate at KFC. I thought it was delicious! But that was ten years ago.

I love pitiful gas station sandwiches, some of which are rather good. I also love all that roller grill crap they have at 7-11

I like their biscuits better than KFC. I do enjoy Popeye's from time to time. If I am at DTW around dinner time I usually head over to Popeye's

Anyone ever have Lee's Famous Recipe chicken. I had not been to one in around 20 years, but I had lunch at one in Granite City, Illinois this summer and loved it.

Not me. For the most part fried chicken is awful. Too little meat with too much bone and it's absolutely covered in grease.

Even before eating there I didn't like the concept of a bucket of fried chicken, so for the two years I lived in Paris and went to a movie theater that had one nearby, I never entered the premises, while I often went to the McDonald's next door.

Recently I ate there for the first time with colleagues and found it awful. I like chicken/poultry that tastes something even without the skin (and has bones that don't feel like cartilage), and prefer the legs. Also, all that grease made me sick, and it takes something to get me sick !

I'm not a fan. If I'm in the mood for fast food fried chicken, Bojangles is the far superior choice. Otherwise, I prefer to make it myself. I'm also a fan of a chicken and waffles restaurant that's opened up in Raleigh - Beasley's Chicken + Honey (http://www.ac-restaurants.com/beasleys/) - the owner/chef, Ashley Christensen, has taken an old grocery store, turned half of the first level into Beasley's, the other half into a burger place (Chuck's), and the basement into a speakeasy liquor bar (Fox).
