TUMWATER, WASHINGTON -- I ordered the 2 piece Boneless Chicken meal, and while eating lunch with a co-worker, I found a bone in the piece of chicken I had in my mouth. I felt it while biting down. No damage to my teeth. I pulled the bone out and it was about 1 inch long and about 1 to 1.5 millimeters in diameter. I showed my co-worker and we thought it was sort of funny. After I got done with eating I got back in line to show that I found a bone in the boneless chicken.
The cashier called for a manager and I informed the manager I found a bone in the boneless chicken. The manager was very nonchalant and wanted to know if I wanted another piece of chicken. Didn't apologize, just seemed very unconcerned. I just let the manager I didn't want anything, I just wanted them to know they should be aware there are bones and it can be dangerous.
It didn't occur to me until I was in my car that the one bone has the potential to be very dangerous. Could have chipped a tooth, speared soft tissue in my mouth, could have choked on it, or even worse, could have choked and had it speared in my throat. I don't want anyone fired or get into trouble, but KFC should create procedures for when bones are found. Ask if I was injured and possibly find out where I found the bone to prevent the same piece of bone being found on other meals.
If I had a child and if something happened to my child while eating "boneless" chicken, I would be very upset. The manager should at least put the customer's thoughts at ease before they leave. I ate there 3 times this week, and now I'm not sure if I'll go back. The food was fine, just the lack of concern bothers me.
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA -- I had a two piece chicken dinner here. I even take the skin off because it's so so greasy. Today the chicken seemed extra greasy and not cooked all the way. I love feed birds while I'm eating, like to share I guess. Believe me the birds didn't even eat much of it.
Anyway I ate around 5:00 and by 9:00 that evening my stomach started cramping. I knew it was a sign of food poisoning and soon as it started. By 10:00 pm I was in such pain with dry heaves that I had to be rushed to the emergency room. I usually can eliminate bad food but it wasn't moving. I sat in the emergency room 2 hours before they took me in. I'm still sick with a stomach virus from the bacteria. It's been so horrible. I was cramped up on the floor of the emergency room for hours from bad food from here. I will NEVER eat at Kentucky Fried again. This was my WORST food poisoning experience ever!
VERNAL, UTAH -- The food was fine. The service was terrible. #538 Week No.23 Period #6 Server DT-Cashier #6. I was rudely told (twice) that I couldn't change my order once they started. (This was before I ordered anything!) I asked for BBQ sauce for the tenders meal, & was reminded (the 3rd time "NO Changes"). So...no sauce or butter for the meals. My food was shoveled towards me at a rate that I couldn't even get my drinks stood up on the seat. I asked for a cup holder, Ignored. I believe, because of the rapid way she spoke, that random UA's should possibly come to this store, bi-weekly.
BELLEVILLE, ILLINOIS -- My name is Beverly ** and I visited the KFC on west main at 2:00 pm and as I entered the restaurant I was approached by the cashier who was very very rude. She didn't smile, not once, while taking my order nor did she give eye contact. Her name was Nyjah.
She had a nasty attitude the whole time while waiting on me. She appeared to not have like her job. She frowned the whole time and she threw my food in the bag. She has the same nasty attitude that she had at McDonalds. I guess that's why she ain't there anymore. I will not be visiting KFC anymore. She is not a people person and she should not be there dealing with the public with that nasty attitude. This happened on September 30, 2014.
ASHLAND, VIRGINIA -- Almost home so went by KFC in Ashland, VA. Had a special - 12 pieces of chicken with 5 sides & biscuits. When order was ready, we assumed it was correct. When we got home 30 minutes later, the chicken was not correct. We ordered 6 grilled pieces & 6 original recipe pieces. Had told cashier potato wedges but received mashed potatoes. Instead of 5 sides, we only had 2. Not a regular customer of KFC, but will avoid now because they don't seem to have competent employees nor good customer service. I had immediately gone to the KFC website and filed my complaint and request for a partial refund but have heard nothing. QUITE DISAPPOINTING!
NEWCASTLE, OKLAHOMA -- I wanted a 8pc meal Original Recipe and the new Dip'em Chicken Tenders. I go through the drive in and said "I want a 8pc meal Original Recipe with mashed potatoes & gravy" whoever was talking to me asked me "What other side order would you like?" I answered "Corn." She asked "Is there anything else?" I said "Yes, I want your new chicken tenders with the dipping sauces." She then asked "Is that in place of the 8pc. meal?" I said "no."
I then repeated my order louder and slower so she would understand. She still got it wrong. I then asked louder "Can you hear me? Do you understand what I want?" I was then talking to her as if she were a 6 year old child. I'm guessing she got confused and repeated my order to me. I got very angry and frustrated and yelled "If you are incapable of taking my order correctly, forget it." I then drove off with no food.
The fast food industry doesn't deserve any raises to $10.10 a hour. You don't teach employees to think with a brain. You teach them to do without thinking. You have them in this little cubicle box and they don't think out of the box. I have been in the retail business for 30+ years and I also owned my own business, so I know what it is like to work with the public. Thank you for letting me get this off my chest.
PHILDELPHIA 19114, PENNSYLVANIA -- I still can't believe it, two days later, I stopped in this Philadelphia, Torresdale location on a Sunday afternoon at 4:30 PM, and they had no chicken. When I walked in I could tell that the customer in front of me was upset about something, but I did not know what until I approached the counter and asked for an 8 piece bucket of chicken meal, to go, they said they didn't have any. "OK I'll have the extra crispy." They, again said that too would not be ready for 20-25 minutes. Has anyone ever heard of a chicken place not having chicken, especially, like my family likes to do, have an early, easy Sunday meal.
DES MOINES, IOWA -- This is the store on the south side of town. Went in to pick up dinner for my family at 5 pm. Only one other customer there, just one. They were NOT busy. I requested half grilled and half original in my bucket. They told me, they would give me SOME grilled, but were low because no one put another tray in to cook. When I returned home, there was NO grilled, AND I only received 3 of my 4 sides.
I went online to file a report with my ticket number and all of the details. That was 10 days ago and even refilled my report. NO one from this once proud organization even responded to me. All I wanted was an acknowledgment that they would try to do better. Their customer service website is a scam. They do not monitor it, nor do they care. Period. The Colonel would be beside himself if he knew how his proud organization is being mismanaged to death. They will be gone in a few years because they have forgotten that customers have value.
COLUMBUS, OHIO -- I have attempted to purchase dinner at my local KFC on several occasions (usually around dinner time) and each time they had either very few pieces left or none at all. Honestly how can a chicken place have no chicken at 6 pm? When I asked if they had any cooking on my last visit they said No! It was only 5:45 pm. Thank goodness there is a Church's Chicken right across the road. 6 out of 6 attempts to purchase from this location (E. Main St., Columbus OH) and each time I ended up at Church's. Thanks to this store I have never been back to a KFC and don't intend to.
PHOENIX, ARIZONA -- On Dec 17, 2013 I ate KFC's Grilled Chicken at 1525 N. 43rd Ave. in Phoenix AZ. The 3-piece Grilled type Breast(s) and Wing were extremely dry (Choke you without a drink to rescue you type dry). Ate some of the corn, which had no juice and was very dry and taste-less as well. The biscuit was good. The green beans were quite good. Asked to exchange the corn for more green beans. The server complied. The Soda was good. The service was acceptable.
Went to KFC's website to register a complaint, but their website froze up, again and again, with two different web browsers. I then tried to report a Technical issue at their site and that froze up as well... go figure! I do not care to try to argue with the proud know-it-alls here posting and boasting about all of the various bacteria that cause food-born illness. I simply came here to say that my meal at a Phoenix KFC was quite poor. While I was there I looked at the old photos of Harland Sanders and thought if he had tasted my meal he would be quite upset.
