    Exclamation First KFC in the world torn down to make way for the new

    The first KFC in the world was torn down on April 20 to make way for a new KFC and museam:

    http://www.cnn.com/2004/TRAVEL/DESTI.../first.kfc.ap/

    I am a crazy KFC collector and I am already in negotiation with the store owner to purchase some things that were salvaged from the wreckage.

    I attempted to purchase the Colonels face (the sign) pictured in this photo: http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2004/TRAVEL/D...ory.kfc.ap.jpg but it was distroyed.

    i went to one near glandford park and it has a drive through, it took 20 mins to get to the front of the que and a further 20 mins to get the grub, i could have hand reared a chicken killed it plucked it cooked it and eaten it less time..........

    i am not a fan of KFC at all

    KFC is pretty clean here but I never eat there (Well not that often) because of the grease. Can't stand greasy food.

    Personally...I think Popeye's serves better chicken. The best chicken though is from Church's, but they are all located in the inner city where I don't travel much.

    every kfc I have ever been to has always been quite dirty and not somewhere that I would eat again, same for most popeyes also but I think it is just because of them all being in the city, always seems to be the same with taco bell.


    For one reason or another most McD's even in some of the worst areas always seem to be fairly clean along with Wendy's and BK's so it may just be that the burger joints keep a much tighter lid on the cleaning procedures??

    Regardless of where you go home is always still the safeest place to eat where you usually do not need to be worried about what was going on with the food before it is being handed to you through the drive thru!

    This is like saying "I saw blood in my steak", you're eating flesh yoooohhooooooooooo!!!!!!!

    If the spine makes you want to throw up, then you should think of becoming a vegetarian... it's like the famous full chicken head found in McNuggets at McDonalds (no big deal).

    I think the best is BostonMarket, but it is a bit on the pricy side. I'm not sure if it's anywhere else but New England though.

    I hate KFC and refuse to eat it. My dad used to eat it when he was depressed all the time before he died so I never wanted to eat KFC ever again.

    Eating off a bone is rather prehistoric in my opinion. I'll still eat Taco Bell, since no one here can convince me thats real meat haha

    KFC in aussie is soaked in fats. Very very bad stuff indeed.

    I personally only eat white meats - chicken (no skin), seafood etc. Took the Mrs out for our 11th wedding anniversery to a seafood place, and we had about 10 crabs and a heap of prawns. Yummmmmm.

    Thats why you have to get young fresh meat, and cook it real well so it just slides right off the bone..

    Mmmmmmmm those babyback ribs are just calling my name..

    KFC is the best. I have never been to a dirty KFC in my life.

    The food isn't the only reason why I am a diehard KFC collector. It's actually because I have great repspect for Colonel Sanders, and I know all about him. I'm actually launching a website about him later this year

    I still feel sick from when I last ate it over a month ago.

    The fat to chicken ratio is unnaturally high, at least where I live...... I'm pretty sure their technique of delivering fat to chicken was concocted in their research labs, as I haven't heard or seen anything remotely close to it in the natural world. .

    Agreed. I used to love KFC, and the tasty skin of the chicken, but nowadays it just feels like I'm biting into a big solid peice of grease with a dash of chicken in the middle.

    Where I live, one of the KFC's was recently torn down and rebuilt from scratch about a month ago. Another one was built some 10 minutes from my house and another is undergoing renovation.

    All fine in Plymouth, England.

    i seriously recommend you read "fast food nation", it really IS a great book. very informative on the politics of "certain things" but again an easy read and a lot of historical insight.
