In barbourville but also all the others around the area? It's too dang expensive, you're looking at $25 regular price that's barely enough to feed 4 family members. For one meal. It's a joke, the prices they ask for a bucket when you only get like 2 chicken breasts and the rest crap

I agree couldn't wait until we got our own KFC and now can't even afford to eat there. The meat has been cut in half seem like not big as a breast should be. A 2 pc meal is over $8 and then go away hungry.

Long John Silvers is not hardly fit to eat their cole slaw isn't even like cole slaw and their other food is so greasy get sick everytime I eat there. You usually have to pull around the back or side and sit and wait to get your food. Their corn on the cobb has never been fit to eat just telling it like it is.

I don't know about everyone else but I miss Hillybilly's. I enjoy a home cooked meal and Thelma's closes too early and the portions are really small for the price too. The Biscuit Restaurant also closes early and everytime I have been there they are closed already.

I wish someone in this town could get it together and we could have a nice restaurant and not be so overcharged for food.

Every time I have got chicken at kfc it has been raw inside....so needless to say I don't go there anymore...Iga has great chicken but its 4.99 a basket until the first of the month and then it goes up to 7.99 a basket,that should be against the law.

Lees Famous Chicken in Corbin is a lot cheaper and better., also their buffet is really good, they have more stuff on it than KFC. Oasis used to have some really good food and GREAT rolls. I wonder if they still have the meals, the price was reasonable too.

I like KFC, but in Barbourville they NEVER have chicken when I go. They are always out. It would be a nice place for a KFC.

It does not matter how high the price is you are not paying for it anyway. The tax payers are! I know everybody that has posted on this is a Welfare/SSI recepient because it is the 1st of the month. Go ahead talk shit about me. You should take all of that energy you are gonna use against me to go out and get a job.

Lol @ creek brother thinking he's the son of god. It does not matter what you post, it's always turned around against the welfare people lol I'm not gonna waste my time with you and I hope no one else does either.

But anyway, yeah igas is good, but if you just get a single chicken breast at IGA it's $2.29! They have great chicken tenders.

Wow, you must be very smart as well as a smart a--, to know who all these people are and their source of income. But sorry to bust your bubble, but No, I do not draw welfare or ssi. I work for everything I have.

Sorry But I'm not driving to Corbin to get chicken.. What am I saving when gas is this high get real.. KFC is a go place to eat and if the don't have chicken out they will get you some.. If you can't afford to eat their why cry about.. Things are high everywhere not just one place. So in my I think you should get used to high prices and they will get higher!!!!

I mean don't get me wrong I love the good. But $8 for a 2 PC meal? Try feeding your husband and 3 kids at that price, before tax it's $40 for a family for one meal.

KFC sucks..always cold, left over food..I know its hard to handle to go.orders and drive thru but you ALSO have a buffet to attend they use to use left over chicken to make the little bbq chicken sandwhich..everytime we have ever been we had to stand for 20 minutes after paying for buffet for them to put food out I've also seen em drop biscuits on floor and pick them up and put em on the buffet and go to tell the manager and it was the one who dropped it

I was up there one day and a lady told them that they never put no chicken on the bar and she was tired telling them every time she came up there and she was not coming back. Everybody in the restaurant heard her. I said this is true there never is no chicken on the bar always have to tell you all to put chicken on the bar. Not a good place to eat.

kfc has cut back on the amount of breading on the chicken, its smaller and about 50 for a 20pc meal. come on 50 who in this economy can afford that. your better off going to iga and buying a pk of chicken legs and a box of shake and bake. and as far as staying in buisness the one in pineville hardley gets any buisness. i sit at pic pac an hour the other day and counted 10 cars. how can they make a profit like that.

Oasis is just nasty nowadays. Used to love their pizza and home cooked meals. It's just gross and look at their windows amd floors. Yuk.
