    Well, I say "restaurants"... So I went to KFC and asked if they had nutritional info, the girl serving looked at me like I was speaking Ancient Greek. I just ordered and was quite annoyed, when I finished I realised the info was printed in the back of the placing mats. As I was leaving the place I very calmly pointed this to the girl, so she'd know in the future, but ended up having an argument with her and her manager because they saw it as passive aggressive and out of line. I was very angry and disappointed.

    Vote with your feet. If that's the way they treat customers, no wonder they lose them :rolleyes:

    Most fast food places also have their nutritional info on the back of their tray sheets. You can ask for one if your going through the drive through as well.

    i believe its a legal necessity that the chefs/cooks should know nutritional value of there food. i know we have carbs counting apps or books but that isn't the point,they should at least try and tell you..........protest with your feet,then post a complaint. when they appologise, and they will, you might get a free meal or 2 out of it and they will be more helpful next time you go in................THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT
