I'm going with KFC, followed closely by Boston Market.

    Harry's Hoffbrau and Fern's Cafe.

    Popeye's are so awful, I wouldn't use them for outside plaster.

      I agree - KFC takes the cake. I still remember when I had my wisdom teeth out and almost lived on KFC mashed potatoes for about a week. It's the gravy that makes them so good.

        Boston Market's are usually so soft and mushy, even omitting the gravy, they remind me of nursing home food.

          I agree KFC. I just got done with 3 weeks of soft foods due to a swallowing problem (got it fixed Tuesday) I lived off of their Mashed potatoes. They were warm, comforting, and more filling than jello.

            My husband recently had surgery and couldn't eat real hearty foods. They did the trick. And the gravy is pretty good.

            I'm bad, but I can eat a plate full of the potatoes and cole slaw.

              I once downed a KFC family-size bucket of mashed potatoes and gravy.

              Gawd, it was so good.

              Probably took at least 5 years off my life.

                The Colnel would be proud.
