Let’s review KFC.
It is the world’s second-largest restaurant chain after McDonald’s, with 22,621 locations globally in 136 countries. Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, KFC’s chicken is seasoned with Sanders’ recipe of 11 herbs and spices. Some of you may also know them by their more popular name, Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Here in Wichita on south Seneca, one on Ridge Road and in Park City, they have an all day buffet that runs from 11am to 8pm for $10 and change. For the purpose of this review, I stopped by South Seneca.
Take a look at this bounty:
I stopped by to give it a try as it’s been years since I last had this buffet. So what can you expect on your visit to the buffet at KFC?
For starters, the sides are huge whiffs. The corn and green beans were sitting in the buffet containers for a good length of time. They were very bland and tough by vegetable standards. The mashed potatoes came with a brown gravy that tasted like a McCormick brown gravy packet which actually I didn’t mind at all. I grew up on that stuff so it was very nostalgic tasting for me. The coleslaw was nothing too special either.
There were some chicken and noodles in the buffet line and I’m not lying. Worst chicken and noodles I’ve ever had in my life. The noodles tasted like rubber…..not that I eat rubber often.
I decided to move on to the main dishes. The chicken fried steak looked so sad and tasted like it looked. Meanwhile the chicken wasn’t half bad. I watched for over thirty minutes as the chicken just sat there untouched by many. For as long as it was lying there, it still did a decent job of maintaining it’s juiciness and tenderness. KFC isn’t particularly my favorite fast food chicken but for what it was, it was halfway satisfying. I just wish there were some legs to choose from!
Some people are enamored by all you can eat buffets, at $10 you will get a lot of food to choose from but most of it just wasn’t good. The chicken was by far the best part as it should but the rest of it was very underwhelming or flat out gross. The last bite of food I had was one of their desserts which was labeled “bread pudding” and was the poorest excuse for one I’ve ever seen. It was the final impression I needed to step up and leave realizing it wasn’t ‘Finger Lickin’ Good’.
To add to all that when I grabbed my food and looked for a table, there were probably 6-7 tables that hadn’t been bussed. It wasn’t a clean dining area by any stretch of the imagination.
