We have been going to KFC reasonably regularly, primarily because my son likes that chicken but in my opinion KFC has the best chicken burger (zinger) among all the fast food joints, at least in bangalore.

If you are coming from cool joint (IV block) towards JP nagar, it is to your left, probably a couple of hundred meters from cool joint.

KFC is strictly ok. Only the Zinger burger is worth buying IMHO. Even that is overpriced. I would rather get stuff from Pizza Port or EVEN McDonalds.

It is a matter of taste obviously. We prefer Zinger to McD any day .

Never tried Pizza Port. Where is it ?

and talk about the PizzaHut service in Forum. I went there couple of days ago the guy who was serving us literally threw the plates at us. He was also kind enough to serve the pizza over the cutleries

Heyyy, what do you people have against KFC? I like their burgers. Zingers are the best.

Talk to the manager. All the Tricon franchisees take customer service very seriously.

Kfc is absolutely fine for its chicken and burgers.

There is one more in HAL(not sure about the place),HSR Layout sector-1,Madiwala called BFC(Big Boy Fried Chicken). They have almost the same menu of KFC and the food is really good and equal to KFC.Again its a multicusine restarunt too serving good food.I have been to the HSR Layout branch only.

Going to KFC for a burger is like going to China and eating a pizza.

I gave KFC a fair number of chances to serve me chicken that doesnt taste as if its been re-heated n number of times. But everytime they disappointed me. I gave up finally. Maybe i expected them to serve the same quality chicken that they serve in US (not that that is mindblowing either, but its definitely a few notches above what they serve here)

I'll take tandoori chicken from my friendly neighborhood dhaba any day over KFC.

Dude, I've had KFC in 9 different countries & KFC tastes same allover. This's the first time I'm hearing a different version.

Maybe you were served old / stale stuff by the outlet where you had.

I always get the fresh stuff, even if it means a few minutes wait, after ordering. They always comply.

KFC rocks

Best burger among the Fast food joints???
Well the correct terminology should be "The most tolerable",
This is the first time I have heard fast food being called good food.
Of course, when you gotta grab a fast bite and make a quick in and out, its KFC or the likes, but good food it is not.

I am not quoting a one off instance here. And why does one need to ask for fresh stuff?
And if i was served the stale stuff everytime i went there, then i have valid reasons for disliking KFC and rubbishing it. Dont i?

And maybe i have hypersensitive taste buds so i am able to figure out the difference in the taste, specially in that of the original recipe.

But, if you like 'em, go get 'em!

Burger by definition is fast food. According to you burgers are crap. :

I love burgers in Pizza Port. Burger Kind is also really good. Maybe it's because I rarely get to eat Burger King, but I enjoy it usually. In some places, they put ketchup and man, it sucks!!

Abroad, you go to McDonalds and they put ketchup in EVERY burger!! I hate it. Luckily, in India they dont do that. McDonalds is also good VFM. It may not be the greatest burger in the world, but stuff from there is very good for the price you pay. The McChicken and the Fillet O Fish are my favourites.

Well overall, all burgers are nonsensical, however if you are looking from a taste point of view, there are lesser known chains like In&Out, Red Robin etc., in the US where they serve very very tasty, albeit very very unhealthy burgers.
They are not really fast food either, because unlike McDonalds etc., where you get a burger in a minute here it takes quite a few minutes, because these chains do not believe in "Frozen food".
Even the potatoes are freshly cut each day
If you really want to get off Mcdonalds watch the movie "Supersize me"
