    The 7th in the series of occasional fast food/ high street survey. This time, what do you think of a GREASY FAMILY BUCKET?

    Toby Carvery
    Pizza Express
    McDonalds
    Subway
    Greggs
    Nandos

    I have many issues with KFC, such as how the chicken is often underwhelming, with some meals you get a BOTTLE of COKE, like you're at home and I feel disgusting after eating it. That said their magic herbs recipe is really quite tasty.

    I haven't been much in recent years, but a couple of years ago I went in and there was a heroin deal going on about 5 foot away from the till. But that may be a sign of our declining town, rather than KFC specifically.

    I’ve never been and the only one here in town does not look appealing at all. I know that’s probably a trait they all share but if I ever go it’ll be in America

    When I get a fast food craving, it tends to be KFC. I'm not particularly a chicken fan (Nandos can get fucked for starters) but it is all about the secret recipe.

    I usually find them too bright. But perhaps that's just a shame thing and feeling like I want to hide.

    It's been many years since I set foot in the one in the centre of Glasgow. In fact, I can tell you - it was 2011; I was bolting from one Xmas "do" to another and dropped in for sustenance. 2 rival gangs were hurling insults at each other. The food was poor.

    I've always hated KFC even before I became a vegetarian. DISGUSTING.

    Love it. Nothing hits the spot like KFC.

    Although, since moving here I've discovered the glory that is POPEYE'S :tongueout::tongueout::tongueout:

    McDonalds has always been my disgusting fast food go-to. I'm sure there's little to no difference in quality between the two, but I've never eaten KFC to my knowledge. They always look too greasy, and I prefer a skinnier, saltier fry.

    I tend to go with Subway (!!!) as my disgusting fast food go-to nowadays. Either that or any ol' pizza place.

    KFC remains the only one I can’t eat anything in. I do miss it sometimes when I’m hanging. Apparently they’ve started doing veggie stuff but it hasn’t arrived HERE yet.

    SIDEBAR: I like how the two most active topics in this forum at the moment are about KFC and the Man Booker Prize.

    Only on Moopy :disco:

    2 floors. Glasgow actually has a multi-storey KFC.

    Their sides are ultimately underwhelming. I know some who go mad for the gravy.

    Our main one is two floors as well. But then so are the McDonald's and Burger King. And Pret, Starbucks and Caffe Nero. It's not so uncommon, is it?

    When it's done right, it's fucking amazing- LOVE KFC if you hit it right- I guess it's how long its been sitting around.

    But more often than not, it's a let down.

    OT: Subway is my most hated of ALL the fast food restaurants. The way the bread cooking smells like ACTUAL VOMIT. The way they SLAP the shit together. The way they try to pretend the salads are HEALTHY.

    The restaurants themselves are NEVER clean and always in really awful parts of towns. Just HIDEOUS.

    Oh I do. I love the gravy.

    Fun fact: KFC sell massive amounts of gravy every year on Christmas Eve because people go there and buy it ready for their turkey dinner :D

    Oh, I've had some bad experiences in Subway with people who clearly hadn't the fucking foggiest what they were doing. I didn't realise putting a sandwich together to a precise template was such a tough job.

    True. Who knew that heating beans to a temperature above that of tapwater was an art form?

    Do they still do the bbq and sweet chilli sauce bites? Those were pretty damn good.

    Anyway, back on topic. KFC is where faux gangsters hang out. Apparently going for chicken is more authentically "street". 00's kids are rubbish.

    I don’t mind KFC, but I very rarely step foot in one. The smell of FAT gets me straight away. :zombie:

    Making something unduly spicy is usually a cover for the meat being awful. Which is why I've never been to Nandos.

    I think you're being way too harsh. They are quite capable of finding that sweet spot between magma and lava, too.

    I know right. It appeals to that part of me :disco:

    Subway is like the Javine of fast food joints. But even Javine had her day I guess.
