When I want a inexpensive fast food meal I go to the KFC on SPI. Service is quick and servers are friendly. Good place for large families and out of towners.

What you would expect of a KFC, and I mean that in a good way. The "Filler Up" combo was a great deal for our dinner after a long day at the beach. Consistently good chicken and sides, and service was a pleasure. Good to know you can trust some chains to provide decent food on the cheap.

Several pieces of thighs and chicken breasts were ordered, prepared, and enjoyed by over 30 guests. Everyone at KFC was so polite and the manager so willing to be as helpful as possible. The chicken is prepared just as ordered and recommended as a quick fix for that hunger for chicken.

We stopped in here for a bucket of chicken, sides and bisquits. Just wanted to have a cheap meal and get away from all of the fancier restaurants in SPI and save some money. For $13 and feed two people, we thought it was great. I mean, it's chicken in a bucket can't expect much but we thought it was... More

We wanted a quick meal so we decided to eat at the KFC at South Padre Island. The chicken seemed as though it had been sitting around for a few hours. The biscuits were very dry and seemed like they had sat around a long time. The best part of the meal was the mashed potatoes and gravy. One of... More

We ordered bucket of original chicken with biscuits. The biscuits were good as usual and the chicken was just plain bad. Eat at KFC a few times every year and never experienced dried out chicken before. It should have been thrown away many hours before and never sold. Bones should not be almost black, meat totally dry and breading ruined.... More
