Claudia Sander’s is a wonderful restaurant located in Shelbyville, Kentucky. Everyone is quite familiar with the popular fast food restaurant KFC. This historical building is where Kentucky Fried Chicken grew into a world wide organization.
Colonel Sander’s, and his wife Claudia moved to Shelbyville, Kentucky in 1959. Black Wood hall which is a 125 year old building, was the Sander family’s home, and base of operation for Kentucky Fried Chicken. Soon Colonel Sander’s business became larger and they needed extra space for their fast growing business. They then constructed a building, which is now Claudia Sander’s Dinner House.
Claudia Sander’s serves lunch, and dinner. All though the best thing to eat in this great restaurant is their world renowned fried chicken, they have other great things to offer as well. They have a large variety of sandwiches, salad’s, ham, fish, steak, desert’s, and other country style meal’s. My favorite thing to eat at Claudia Sander’s, beside’s their fried chicken is their mouth watering Hot brown. Their Hot Brown has the same ingredients as any other hot brown, except it is covered in their delicious secret sauce. Claudia Sander’s is known for their large portion’s. When your meal come’s out, your server bring’s a cart full of every side item they have. You are welcome to have as many side’s as you want.
