For more than 60 years, this all-American institution has been serving its signature chicken and home-style sides.. In Short Established in 1939, this fast-food restaurant still makes its legendary fried chicken with the closely guarded blend of 11 herbs and spices originally created by founder Colonel Sanders. Modern additions to the menu include oven-roasted renditions of its chicken sandwiches, popcorn chicken, potato wedges and wraps. Classic sides include flaky, oversized biscuits, steaming-hot mashed potatoes and gravy, smoky-sweet baked beans and crisp, generously dressed coleslaw. Kids and adults love the "little bucket" parfaits of pudding desserts.
When I think chicken, there's only one person that comes to mind (well, after momma)--the Colonel. Crispy, juicy, and just done right. The waffle fries always bring a smile to my face and a warmth to my belly. I recently tried their popcorn chicken, and though I was disappointed to find they did not use any actual popcorn in the chicken, it was nonetheless fantastic. And your left with these lovely little crispies in the bottom of the tray (if I could just order a big bucket of those crispies, I think I would). Rounded out with an icy cold Dr. Pepper and you've got yourself one heck of a Saturday night. Dates love it "for here" or "to go". Chicken and grease is what made this country great, and no one does it better than the Colonel.
