KFC Buffet Thoughts
New Patron

Champaign, IL

#1 Jun 25, 2012
During the last couple of weeks, I tried the "new" KFC and its buffet.

I must say I was pretty disappointed. For the money, they didn't have a large selection from which to choose. Also, there wasn't much food out. During the hour we were there (we went with some friends), they did not add more of an item until the "older" food was gone, as in completely. Then they would only add a couple of that item. The potatoes were old and yellowish, there were no labels to figure out what some of the items were, and there were not enough utensils (tongs, ladles, etc...) to serve each item. One of the guys who went with us wanted a glass of water. Guess what? No lids for that. Also, the music was ridiculous and extremely loud.

Probably the biggest disappointment was that there was no salad. For a buffet, you should always have salad, even if only a tossed green salad. Pizza Hut has one, and they have fewer items to serve overall. But that salad really makes it there.

I rated my visit overall as a D. Wouldn't take someone there again. And not sure if I would want to go back myself.

I think its kinda gross. Nothing looks quite "right". I love KFC,but Watseka's didn't take long to get back to the old level of service. I'll get my KFC fix in Kankakee.

nothing has "bitten" me. There are plenty of great places To eat in Watseka. Miss Karol's,Full Bull,La Patosina is on the way... I simply stated that the Watseka KFC is not up to snuff,so if I want KFC,I'll get it elsewhere until someone fixes the one we have in Watseka.

You HAVE been bitten. Hypocrisy is your game. You tell people to shop locally, then in the same breath, state that you will go to Kankakee for KFC. The places you go to here are bars. How does that help our economy in Watseka? KFC is not the same, nor is it a restaurant I would go to again in Watseka. Where are the "plenty of great places to eat" in Watseka? Nada, J.

They are in Kankakee, Bradley, and Bourbonnais.

Problem is they are afraid they will have to throw away food so they don't put much out. So we stopped going because it was always about empty. However, they said tell us what you want and we will get it for you.

Yeah, and that's why they lost my business. EMPTY!
