Harland Sanders Cafe and Museum reviews
We were sad to see the museum and cafe closed! We did enjoy the long line for drive thru. The food was like any other kfc. We did eat in parking lot and get out and take a look at the outdoor items... more »
We were so excited to see the museum but got there and all there was was a 20 car deep drive thru line and a sign saying the dining room was closed. Luckily the line moved fast but we were stuck... more »
I love this stop. The food and service are great. The museum is free. This was my third visit. (I travel from South Carolina to Michigan.) I still enjoy taking the detour to go here.
We spent 30 minutes yesterday and 45 more today walking through and reading everything. I spent my childhood at the Sanders altar. So cool learning more about him along with the special series on the History Channel last month. And I saw the bundt cake!!! Had to get a couple to bring for the long drive home.
