Lee's Famous Recipe is the place around here. Less greasy than KFC, their extra crispy is awesome, and their mac and cheese is the bomb, yo.

daffy: I would want coupons for other things, if I had eaten there before and like them.

I asked for a sandwich with no mayo, (as I am allergic to it) at Boston Market. I was talking to another customer and the lady that took my order the whole time about how you should have to ask for mayo if you want it.
I sat down and took one bite and There it was, loads of mayo! I walked back to the counter and show the lady. She told the girl to get me another one with no mayo. Guess what she did. She used the same chicken and scraped off the mayo (not all). I called their home office and they were very nice. They sent me a coupon for any size single meal. Of course, i ordered the biggest one they had and made sure the girl was not near my food! sometimes it does pay to complain.


Just because you don't like mayo doesn't mean you are allergic to it.

imtheonlylp: besides, that's why you go to Chik-Fil-A for chicken...everyone knows that..


Unfortunately, Chik-Fil-A doesn't have any resturaunts in the Seattle area, plus as good as they are I feel guilty eating there when I travel now, after the political situation they created recently.

If I got food from a restaurant and felt it was tainted by chemicals and possibly unsafe to eat, I'd be pissed if the company didn't even acknowledge my concerns.

This isn't a "my food was cold, give me a free meal" situation, this is something that could make other people sick and the fact that KFC doesn't even care is disturbing.

Whatever happened to, you know, just not eating there again?

You're going out to eat. Once you decide to do that you give up control of your food since you're no longer the one who will prepare it. Not saying there isn't recourse if your food is awful/unsanitary/burned but what do you really expect from minimum wage "cooks" who just want to go home and smoke a blunt?

/No, I don't make all my own meals
//But I don't take things back to McDonalds/BK/KFC and ask for my money back
///Seriously, you want your $6.50 back? And you're willing to waste your own time arguing with KFC PR and corporate drones?

Of course, he has no proof other than his word on it. Not even someone else in the office who verified the story. I wonder how many times a day they get these unverified complaints?

True, but it's not like he was asking for anything (the stuff about the coupons was apparently made up for the headline). How hard is it to email the customer and say "We're sorry to hear about the quality of product you received today. We are going to contact the manager right now to see what the issue is and what we can do to make sure it doesn't happen again."


I'm fairly sure although nasty things happen daily all across the country and people do complain and get ignored, the consumerist authors are just writing these letters themselves. why on earth do they always redact the town and any possible identifying information about the biatching consumer or the place of business? it is the opposite tactic you would use if you wanted to get a response.
withholding that information practically guarantees no company can ever appropriately respond, but also adds the convenient shield of ambiguity and ensures if anyone wanted to check on this story has no way to verify it.

Out of curiosity, which are you allergic to: oil, eggs, or vinegar/lemon juice? Plenty of people don't like mayo and that's fine - but if you are allergic to it then you are allergic to one of those 3 things and that affects a whole lot of foods. It would be less confusing, especially at restaurants, if you mentioned exactly what you are allergic to so they don't mistakenly kill you. Food allergies are nothing to be taken lightly.

Englebert Slaptyback: jaylectricity

go visit a KFC in [redacted], MA

I'll bet it's the one in Quincy.


Quincy was an MD, not an MA.


And inside of a Quincy, it's too dark to read.


Actually, he was an ME, not an MD.

I don't eat at Chick-Fil-A, their food contains MSG, and all sorts of crap in it. Wendys chicken sandwich is much better and more natural IMHO.

You've never been to [redacted], MA? It's a lovely town. The high school's mascot is the [redacted] Censors. As you might imagine; all the street signs are blacked out; and all the addresses are blurred.

/ I imagine that plays well with the postal service

// the town seal looks a lot like the seal of the FCC

What, no pics of the offending food? That's the greatest thing about camera phones. You can have damaging photos on Facebook before the manager can react or the cops smash your phone.
