My first memory of eating at Kenny Rogers Roaster was when I was around 12 years old. I loved how their chicken was moist and soft and the side dishes were really yummy.
However, I have noticed that as the years went by, their chicken taste seems to have changed. I assume they still cook it the way they used to (since they still have their window display of a big roaster with chicken being cooked). Maybe it's the time from roaster-to-plate that makes a difference. Since they have lots of customers, maybe they cook the chicken way ahead of time and it sits in the carvery area for a long period of time. That's just my opinion.
Anyways, for tonight, I ordered their original roast chicken. I got the breast part. The chicken was a little dry and it was not as yummy as I have had it previously. The white rice that comes with it was dry too. The saving grace of the platter was the mac and cheese side dish and the corn muffin. I wasn't satisfied with my dinner tonight. :-(
