don't do kfc very often. when i do i am resigned to the fact it often is cold and always very fatty.

heart attack in a bun on the sandwiches. never the less i love the little 99 cent chicken sandwich.

Lately DW and I have been filling out the surveys on the back of the recipts, calling the 800 numbers, etc whenever we have a bad experience.
It is amazing the number of coupons we have gotten in the last couple of months...
And we even got one Burger King to finally, after three months, fix its shake machine!

If you are talking about their fries, yea never get them. One rule we have for most fast food is we only go when it is busy, and towards the end of the busy time. Also, for sides we stick to things like mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans. They are good and we never have a problem with them.
Another trick on fast food places is always do a custom order. Hold the pickles, or double the cheese, no salt on the fries (then ask for salt packets, gets em every time!). When it is made to order it is fresher.

Sure wish Mickey D's would bring back that BBQ rib sandwich, for the same reeason.....

McRib sandwiches are always great, but they will only sell them if they can get a great deal on pork. Not going to see them often at all now.

That's what I heard, kleenex. They couldn't find a good supplier for my area, so no McRibs. I've only seen them once since they were first introduced, locally.

We tried the KFC Smoky Chipotle chicken. Ick, all hotness no flavor in my opinion, couldn't taste any 'smoky' in it at all. DW liked it though...
