There’s nothing as iconic as Kentucky Fried Chicken — and yes, we’re talking about *the* Kentucky Fried Chicken. Because while you may know the ubiquitous, finger-lickin’ poultry as your go-to dinner spot or road trip treat, this culinary legend got its start in Corbin, Kentucky, decades ago. KFC’s original fried chicken recipe was invented in a humble kitchen in Central Kentucky, and while the restaurant has since been franchised and exists all across the country, you can still order chicken by the bucket at the *original* Kentucky Fried Chicken in Corbin.

Visiting the original KFC in Corbin is most certainly an experience that belongs on your bucket (of fried chicken) list! For more information, please visit the Sanders Cafe website.
