Anyone Like Kentucky Fried Chicken

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

Oh yes! I get a craving for some Kentucky Fried Chicken at times. I find them to be top class in fast-food, though their fries are probably the worst in the business.

KFC is good stuff and despite the grease, healthier than most other fast food. Just don't eat too much KFC or fast food.

Yeah, well. Last time I had one of those I had to be in bed for five days with a bad case of food poisoning. Not in Germany, of course, but I learned to stay away from those sandwiches anyway, even if I am in Sweden.

I do enjoy KFC once in a while. Might sound corny, but it´s sort of nostalgic too as when I was growing up it was probably the only fast food chain we had in Mexico City (The first McDonald´s in Mexico opened around 1985) and my father loved it. Thus, most Sundays, as a child, off to the KFC it was. Nowadays I get a craving once in a while. I prefer chicken on the bone, skin, grease and all. Those nuggets and "boneless" pieces I find rather soylentgreenish.

I prefer "El Pollo Loco" myself, though, and it´s healthier. But then you can argue all that grilled chicken can be carcinogenic so...

During my first trip to South Africa in the late 90s, I was being driven from Johannesburg to Pretoria for product certification testing. The plan was to stop for lunch and the person from the local office suggested one of his favorite locations. I was thinking this would be a nice local pub or a lunchroom offering exotic dishes. As it turned out, his favorite place was one of the dozens of KFCs I noticed on this trip. Sigh.....

KFC was an occasional guilty pleasure for me growing up. When Mr. Harlot and I drove out to Seattle for the first time, we had an overnight stop in Bozeman, Montana, and being poor students, we went to KFC for dinner - and were confused and horrified. The chicken looked and tasted entirely different from what we were used to in Canada and the sides were also all different. It was so strange. I think we tried American KFC one more time in the Seattle area and found exactly the same thing and totally gave up on it. If we're going to have fried chicken here, we get it from a local grocery store (right ER757?   ).

A couple of times a year we go up to Vancouver to go shopping and then we almost always go to KFC for lunch. One piece of chicken, maybe two, and fries and gravy...if we're in the mall and really want to treat ourselves we'll get New York Fries instead of KFC fries.

And that takes care of our KFC cravings for another six months to a year.

Every time I have eaten there I have found the chicken to be too greasy and the fries somewhat tasteless. The gravy is alright though.

In Houston there is a rather small chain named "Frenchie's" that has the absolute best fried chicken around. It's pretty spicy and hot. That's why I like it. There is a good one right across the street from the Astrodome and Reliant Park.

Popeye's and Frenchie's are 2 of my favorite comfort places to go to! Glad both are a bit of a drive for me as I would be there at least twice a week!

Rather make my own.

I do too, but I rather make them at the restaurant than I would at home because of oil disposal.

There's a food truck here that serves a Chicken-n-Waffles sandwich which has been a fave of mine since I discovered them!

My favorite chicken place is the Church's on Ogden in Chicago. I've never eaten there, I just love the location: across the street from Malcolm X College.

KFC is okay, but nothing beats homemade fried chicken, much better then the store bought crap.

I rarely eat it, but sometimes you just want it. You don't have to think it's the best chicken out there, but you know what I mean. Sometimes a crispy chicken with mashed potatoes and cole slaw just hits the spot. Yes, there are better out there. But...

Ttoday I happened to eat at one and while ordering, I noticed someone getting the roasted chicken as opposed to the deep fried batter. I got that (the 2 piece with mashed, cole slaw and a drink came out to about $9.00 and change (this is Honolulu after all).
THe roasted version was pretty darned good I must say, but I do realize I could have gone across to Ala Moana Center 's food court and gone to Lahaina Chicken for their roast chicken and 3 sides for about the same price and much better,

but stil.... KFC can be yummy when you want it.

No, and it is a national taste thing. You go to Brazil or Chile and it is filled with KFC, but in Argentina they failed to attract any customers (Pizza Hut takes the cake though, they tried twice and failed!).

Argentines just don't like deep fried food, just not part of our diet. And chicken has always been seen as what you eat when you can't buy steak, so all those things put together just make it not work.

I think I had once piece one time about 6 years ago.

KFC is good when there's nothing else around. Otherwise, I get my chicken from a local grocery store deli, where they make everything from scratch, and their own unique spice blend in the batter. Plus, they have rosemary chicken and BBQ chicken with house-made sauce, and plenty of scratch-made sides.

Now, where I come from, we eat huge greasy, vinegary sausages dipped & fried in batter. Yet still, it repulses me when I think of the KFC I had in Barcelona...when I bit into it grease actually squirted out...ewwwwwwwwww

I'll take the Popcorn Chicken though...

I think the same way.  
Can't wait to get to Argentina to eat their steaks.

I used to prefer KFC to anything else available... not anymore though. With the advent of Burger King on the market and either my appetite changing or them changing, I am even more likely to visit McDonalds than KFC these days for fast food...

But I still enjoyed the Longer I had yesterday (although I was not the one who initiated a visit).

I am a bit sorry though that we dont get the likes of Wendys and Taco Bell around here. Would be nice to try. We do have all kinds of Gyros places on the other hand for those I-am-going-home-after-a-night-out-and-kinda-feel-hungry times. Lots of pizza parlors too, although no Pizza Hut to enjoy a good Chicago style pizza (there is a shop in Prague, but all the way in old town, and, therefore, a bit too expensive for my liking)

EDIT: I just got such a craving that I got them to deliver me one. Good thing that Thursday night is free delivery night.

Way too high a ground beef diet for my liking! I need a rotation of beef, pork, chicken, and fish/seafood, with possibly some other exotic game thrown in.

Most of my diet actually revolves around pork and poultry (chicken and turkey). Ground beef in hamburgers is twice or thrice a month food. Be it McD or BK or a proper place.

Gyros is actually pieces of lamb (originally, I believe) or pork (most common here).

About seafood... that is kinda hard. I like nice fish but they are soo expensive... Game as well... Dad gets a nice piece of game couple times a year, but that is a rare occasion.

Col. Harlan Sanders started his first KFC chicken place in Corbin, KY., right off of Interstate 75; it was right next door to the truck stop, (which was probably a Pure Oil TS way back then; ( 50s & 60s) I used to fuel up at the TS and stop in at the KFC when "The Col." was still frying the chicken ! We have a KFC in Brazil, (Indiana that is) that "sucks", (mainly due to the "PP" management; (the food's OK) THe best KFC is in Terre Haute; I get their senior buffet a couple of times a month; their green beans are 2nd to none, their mac & cheese is great, and their cole slaw is better than "Grandma's"; (and I usually go through at least three, and sometimes four "original recipe" chicken wings; (the only piece of a chicken I eat)

Now......for all of you "health nuts" who think deep fried chicken "will kill you"; I can easily blow "that" theory right out of the water ! I just had my "every other year" heart workup, and my cardiologist said my arteries are "clean as a pin", I'm within two lbs. of my "perfect"weight, i've been eating KFC since the year the Col. started making it, (and I'll be 80 in December.)

Long live KFC !!!!
