We had to stop here to see where it all began with the Colonel. The museum shows the original kitchen, dishes, table set up, and advertising. My husband also had a chicken meal that was tasty.

This is a very busy KFC and usually has fresh chicken. The experience of eating where it all began is really remarkable when you take in the feel of the original equipment and small museum

It was a great visit & of coarse the food was great!! The history of the humble beginnings of KFC was so interesting. Humble beginnings and hard work built a successful business that still thrives today! Well worth seeing!!

Very typical KFC in an atypical location. Same great food you get at any KFC. Going through the drive thru here seems to be something only the locals should be doing. To visit, and not check out the museum, is simply a mistake.

I've eaten here several times over the last year hoping it would get better. Sometimes chicken over cooked and other time undercooked. The best part is seeing the original equipment and where it all started. I've had better KFC and will wait some time before...More

We stumbled on this while taking the exit to get gas. It was neat to see where it started and to see all the old memorabilia.

Any of you tourists who want to know what the real Colonel Sanders was really like ask a few locals. A neat little museum food is good etc. Not to far from I75 maybe 5-10 minutes.

We were going to be staying in the Corbin, KY area and so we decided to swing by and "see the Colonel" for lunch. While the food is typical to what one would find at any modern KFC, it is worth the stop to see...More

Nostalgic setting takes you back to youthful times. Moist, fried chicken with "fixins" of coleslaw, mashed potatoes and green beans really was "finger lickin good"!
