Service: Somewhat slow, but I wasn't in the correct state to estimate time. Food: Great. I got the 3 piece chicken + fries meal. Filled me right up, and sobered me up a bit. Value: Dirt cheap for some good fried food Atmosphere: Bulletproof glass separates you from the employees. Other customers are in various states of intoxication. College kids... More

The Binghamton police are very familiar with this place since it is notorious for its near-nightly fights. In fact, the City has tried repeatedly to shut it down as a public nuisance.

Fried chicken not as south style, so dont expect to be spicy, is not spicy at all. But is very good, a place with walk in late night, you wont find it easy in a small city.

The chicken and hot sauce is outstanding, but if you know the place you go for the coco bread and meat pies. They make great mashed potatoes. If you go after midnight have courage.

...but the NEW Chicken Pot Pie is great value for money and isn't that what 'fast food' is all about? Prompt and courteous service and clean surroundings...well done KFC!

If you do than Kennedy Fried Chicken is the place for you. Weekly mugging with a chance of hospitalization and/or death! Will it be you this time? Do the denziens in the parking lot recognize your face? If not than its a good chance the answer is yes! Man up, don't be scared now. Play it cool, like you belong... More

Almost everytime I've been to KFC they always mess up my order! I've tried this KFC three times. Two out of three they've messed up. The staff is also very rude.

Honestly... this is great place to get food. But you have to take into consideration several things. Most people dont eat there before 10pm. I dont know why. Its mainly an "after hours" place to eat. Its in the middle of a not so good area of Binghamton. And if you're there after 3am.. theres usually a bunch of drunk... More
