Waited in line for over ten minutes. They were out of certain kinds of chicken and then they got my order wrong - which was not special, just two meals. They have a help wanted sign that says prerequisite is wearing a smile, but no one was smiling. Valuable time on the Parkway wasted here and driving ten minutes back... More

Very nasty indeed. I was going to take my fries back because they were cold but my wife was concerned they would take revenge. All the food was nasty and the place was dirty and horrid. Don't go!

This KFC offers the KFC all you can eat buffet, which I love. 3 types of chicken offered on the buffet, original, extra crispy and grilled.. If you like KFC chicken, this is a good place to go. Great location, good seating and service. This KFc often gets busy but the staff seems ready to handle a rush.

First Pizza,Hut now KFC? By the way I am contacting corporate. You don't fry chicken in oil 1,000 times then change it! I cannot believe how terrible my chicken was. I should have taken a picture. The breast was black. They had to know better.

This review is a fair and frank analysis of a recent visit to this KFC. Please. Do not even get out of your car here. I did and I am sorry. There was a little buffet that was dirty, the food was old, cold, and absolutely inedible looking. The chicken strips and wings I ordered appeared to have been cooked... More

Love the chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuits, Cole slaw. This place is always packed, but we'll worth the money. We eat here at least twice while we are in cherokee.
