This is an excellent KFC--and a museum to boot. If you like heat, they've really got some hot chicken here.

I visit this location often Food and service is always good. The museum is very interesting also. It's intriguing to see the original utensils and cookware used back in the beginning.

This is the location where Col Sanders came up with his original KFC recipe way back then. The food is pretty much the same standard quality you get all across the country. The look and ambiance of this KFC is unique compared to the franchise...More

Very neat place to learn a lot more about Colonel Sanders. But keep in mind it is a KFC so they serve regular KFC food which some people think is a negative thing.

Visiting the home of the original KFC was very interesting. Corbin is a quaint town. The museum has a lot of history about Harland Sanders and the beginnings of his KFC empire.

We had to stop here to see where it all began with the Colonel. The museum shows the original kitchen, dishes, table set up, and advertising. My husband also had a chicken meal that was tasty.

This is a very busy KFC and usually has fresh chicken. The experience of eating where it all began is really remarkable when you take in the feel of the original equipment and small museum

It was a great visit & of coarse the food was great!! The history of the humble beginnings of KFC was so interesting. Humble beginnings and hard work built a successful business that still thrives today! Well worth seeing!!

Very typical KFC in an atypical location. Same great food you get at any KFC. Going through the drive thru here seems to be something only the locals should be doing. To visit, and not check out the museum, is simply a mistake.
