Usually crap service..very slow...when gunmac is right across the road, why even go here?

Once I tried to go in at like 4pm and it was closed and some woman inside just stared at me so i said, fuck this and went to maccas i think.

Very average, took long to serve, and deliver the food. When I got it it was incorrect. 5 from me.

Things have picked up here. But is still quicker to get out of car & walk in to order. Actually quite quiet during the weekdays.

The drive-thru seems to confuse most people.

And the service is slow.


And they forgot my chips. :( (Which i only realized about half way home..doh.)

When I was down at KFC today, the manager was talking to staff about specials using a customers mobile. I thought maybe it had something to do with Foursquare, or an app for iPhone/Droid users. A bit of further investigation has revealed you check in using Facebook to gain the special, just flash your phone to a staff member when ordering.

Not sure how long this has been going on for, but looking at their facebook page and the fact that people were being "inducted" on it, I would say not long.

Announced this morning by Facebook Australia and New Zealand: https://www.facebook.com/FacebookAUNZ/posts/10150260388647415 (only visible when logged in)

Starting today Commonwealth Bank, 7-Eleven, Westfield and KFC will be able to offer you check-in deals when you check in to their place on Facebook. Finding deals near you is easy. On touch.facebook.com (on HTML5-enabled phones) or the latest version of Facebook for iPhone & Android, touch "Places" and then touch "Check In." Nearby Places with deals have a yellow icon. Where will you check-in today?

Wonder what the deal at the bank is :P

I don't know if it was Oporto opening in Gungahlin or Gunners peps have turned off KFC, but the lines is a LOT shorter ast 12:00 weekdays & the drive through is just on empty. While McDonalds across the road is alot busier, back a few years back (before Oporto & Gungahlin College) service was terrible. But with more people & more competition things have gone down for this store.

Tried the KFC at Rosehill in Sydney. It is just like every other KFC is Australia. Except it has KFC Express, which is a self service machine. So basically you select your order from the options & pay by EFTPOS (only payment option allowed) & you are given an order number. Then the staff get it ready & (normally) call your number out. This store has had it for quite a number of months (before the staff member I asked had started).

This is the sort of thing that KFC at Woden & Tuggeranong could do with.

Yes there are a few stores with that now (As well as McDonald's stores with a similar set up). All stores need this system, it is really good!

Looks like a KFC is being planned for Emu Bank. On the corner near the skate park.

Well, it was the only major chain without a presence on the fast food strip.

Should be easier for Belco residents to avoid the Hawker KFC now! I'm amazed that one has lasted so long given it's pretty much a suburban location and not exactly a major shopping centre.
