Eat your KFC in the building where it all started. Trip over the droves of people there as you attempt to find a seat. Look at some memorabilia, get a picture with the Colonel and see his famous white suit. If you're going to Cumberland...More

The Colonel's original kitchen and restaurant. YOu order a the counter, just lik in the small red-and-white restaurants. We found the pieces less greasy, slightly larger. Whether you like KFC or not, this is worth trying.
