My wife and I decided to stop here after a day of hiking. First impression upon walking in isn't good...not a clean table in the place and floor likewise dirty. Visible prep area also looked unappealing. One couple came and promptly left when they saw how the interior looked. Next problem was the wait...our order was small, just an order... More

It's been years since we've eaten st kfc. My husband wanted to check out the buffet. While looking at the buffet we noticed an enormous number of flies - near the ceiling between the buffet table and the back work area! Needless to say we turned and the all right out !! Another 20-30 yrs before we try kfc.

We love KFC, but this one was not up to par. On our recent visit, we arrived at about 6:30pm, prime dinner time, and intended to order the buffet. We checked the buffet out first, as we always do, and there were 2 pieces of original recipe on the bar. So, we waited about 10 minutes to see if they... More

While spending a few days in Cherokee, my husband and I decided to go to the KFC to get a bucket of chicken. When we got there, we were told there would be about a 30-minute wait because more chicken had to be fried. In about 15 minutes, my husband came back with our order. The chicken was semi warm...

We left shorty after arriving. Drinks were spilled on the floor, food was on the floor that had missed the trash can, all the tables were dirty and had food underneath them. It was disgusting. I rated it as one because I had to mark something. We will never return!

We pulled into town at 9:30pm and decided to get chicken. KFC closes at 10pm and we were there at 9:45pm. Someone was already stacking chairs onto tables and cleaning. But I saw them looking at chicken in the kitchen, so walked in to grab some. I was met by rude staff saying they were CLOSED. I said, you have... More

Its kfc nothing new or special there but it is clean and the staff went above and beyond. I had to wait for fresh tenders and they were so apologetic I got a pike of complomentry food and cookies for the family. Not the usual fast fod attitude.
