“KFC is inside, too!”

Eat where it all began - sort of. The Harland Sanders Museum and Cafe is built directly across the street from the original KFC where the Colonel perfected his recipe. Enjoy a bucket of chicken and see some of the original items relocated at this KFC.

Interesting if you are passing nearby. Not worth driving out of your way though, as it is mostly just a KFC.

KFC is the world's 2nd largest fast food chain in the world. And it started here, in Corbin KY! If you're an entrepreneur you should let this sink in. You don't have to be in California or New York to start an outrageously successful business. Come pay homage to the Colonel!!

if you're on a road trip it's a fun way to stop and eat and take a pic sitting with a statue of Sanders. if you don't want to eat here it's not worth the drive, there's not much nearby and it's not super close off the highway.

Nice unexpected stop on the road! Great for a quick little detour. It is primarily a regular KFC, but there is some cool stuff to see.

Still finger licking good. But tastes better here. Cute stop heading south worth the little side trip.

Passed through Corbin as part of our KY road trip on the way to Cumberland Falls. Was worth the stop just to say have been to KFC in Kentucky and to see where it all started. For some reason (maybe I imagined it or was just hungry) the chicken tasted better here.
