I've gone there hundreds times for lunch but lately the food is cold. It's just not worth going anymore depends who serving you at the counter, some are friendly others wish they weren't there. I had a problem one night their machines were down. He told me they would put the food under a hot lamp until I got back... More

I went in and just orders a boneless box meal the cashier wasn't very friendly and the employees in the back thought it was more important to talk about their ex boyfriend then to serve me. When my food was finally packaged up the cashier/server was no where to be found so my food was sitting on a ledge I... More

Take out only. A good deal if you have coupons. Fries always taste like they have been sitting in heat table for a long time. Never fresh tasting or crunchy. . . chicken is average. Small pieces, but tasty.

For whatever reason, this chicken was bland. Gone was the signature taste of the Colonel's 11 different herbs and spices. Looks like Yum! Brands has decided to reduce the ingredients to maximize profits. This was more like chicken coated in flour, than the Original Recipe of Col. Harland Sanders who lived in Barrie, Ontario. The saving grace was that the... More

I am used to the size of the breast served in the States. Be prepared folks - the breasts served in Canada appear to be the size of thighs. But, tasted great!!

Fifty years ago when I was a child, I always looked forward to the special times my mother would pick up Kentucky Fried Chicken for supper. I loved it, but like most foods, quality has gone way down over the years. It just doesn't taste very good anymore I don't get into town very often and had a craving for... More

Bad experience but Manager came through! We decided to take home a 10 piece meal with fries after a long day. Once home ready to eat......Surprise only 7 pieces which were all small looking. Good thing it was only the 2 of us and no one else for dinner. I called immediately to explain what our order consisted of and... More

Unfortunately the Kentucky Fried Chicken these days is not up to Colonel Sanders original standards. The big corporation running it these days has changed the flavour, and the way it is cooked. The result is only a semblance of the chicken which was available at the restaurants when Colonel Sanders lived in Ontario back in the '60's.The fries were never... More

Called in on Oct 15th at 6:10pm, was put on hold, could clearly hear the girl in the background who answered the call. Said I was likely remaining on hold to yell at her. This was after a 10 min wait time. The girl kept moving the phone around until I finally hung up. Whoever the person was should be... More
