That was the lowest of 8 Mexican restaurants led by Chipotle (7.7), Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill (7.5) and Qdoba (7.4). On the poultry side of the plate, KFC’s score of 6.6 fell at the bottom of 8 chicken chains lead by Chick-fil-A (7.0), Boston Market (7.4) and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen (7.4). Louisville-based Yum! Brands owns Taco Bell, KFC and Pizza Hut." [Courier-Journal]
