When traveling I-64 in Central Kentucky don't pass up the chance to stop at Claudia Saunders Chicken Resturant on Rt.60 just west of Shelbyville. Yes this is Mrs. Colonel Saunders. While the Colonel was busy establishing his chicken empire, his wife was operating a 'step-above' kind of establishment after their move from their initial location near Corbin, KY. The place burned down in 1999, and has been totally rebuilt into a beautiful informal dining facility. This is not a 'chicken stand' by any means. It reminds me of what Walter Knott had built at the famous Berry Farm in SoCal, before the urban blight crushed it. Mrs. Saunders is a genteel place, with lots of beautiful "horsefarm" art work on the walls, and a nice fire warming the place in the main dining room. service has been super, and the menu (Lunch and Dinner only) has several chicken and country ham entree's. Prices are in the $6-12 range. Side dishes include the usual baked apples, some really good Harvardized Beets and Corn Pudding.
We are headed back there this weekend and will attempt to get some decent photos to put with a review. Meantime, for a great sit-down fried chicken dinner and comfortable facility, try this one.
