“Have not got a clue !!!”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 August 2018 via mobile

£11 for 2 of the worst meal deals EVER.
The 2 young shop assistants haven't got a clue what day it is, everything is over cooked instead of timers being used on the friers. The place is filthy and the staff were slipping and sliding on the greasy floors. This place needs an inspection from trading standards officers!!!

Having been a regular here at least twice per week for the past 12 months, im really disappointed that I have to write this review! Their chicken and paprika chips used to be the best.....but im really not sure what has happened the last couple of months as the food is absolutely diabolical. They mess the orders up, the food is cold and the chicken has literally lost its crispy skin before its left the shop. I really thought that it had sold to someone else it changed so drastically from the best to the worst. When complaining on the last 2 occasions I was met with ignorance. I believe they also own MFC too which IS up for sale so maybe they are not really bothered about longevity of their customers anymore. They have lost our custom that is for sure. Don't waste your money even thinking this may just be a "one" off bad experience review....it really will be a waste!

Not had AFC for years after a bad review on hygiene but fancied it for days so called after work. 2 piece meal with a large chicken sauce £5.60
The chips were cold and tasted like they had been cooked more than once in old oil. 1 piece of chicken was so dry it much had been done for hours both pieces were small. Hardly any of the skin on either and that's the best bit and what folk like. The chicken sauce was ok by didn't mask the cold awful chips.
I used to really love AFC was a guilty weekend treat but for the price and considering there are 2 other very large chicken food chains near by which are cheaper and better quality think it will be years before I visit again if ever

Ordered 2 x king size chicken sandwiches, 1 x large chips and 8 wings.
Sandwiches were filled with yesterdays recycled cold chicken from the fridge, It wasnt just cold it was chilled. It was also so dry it was inedible. Wings were tasty but again were dry and probably reheated. Chips were nice.
Assistant also forgot to include the wings until I reminded her.
The premises are really dirty with the ffloor in the customer area caked with grease and grime, Lots of evidence that the place is not cleaned properly. God knows what it looks like behind the scenes. The 4 items mentioned above cost over £11 which is really poor value compared to other similar outlets.
All in all at best a very poor experience, at worst a serious health hazard,

Do yourself a favour and avoid this place unless you are wearing a bio hazard suit and have the constitution of an ox. Even my dog wasnt impressed.

Wish somone would report them to the environmental health

Ordered some food. 45 minute wait which is fine. Delivery driver asked for more than what it was worth. Maybe an honest mistake. No chips arrived? A wrap "meal" to me means you get more than a wrap? Not in AFC's "la la land". When it came chicken dry, wrap falling to bits. Sauce was good though. Bit lumpy. Perhaps a rebrand to Appalling failed cooking.

Best get t'oven on
