During the eighth season of Seinfeld in 1996, a Kenny Rogers Roasters opens up a restaurant across from Kramer and Jerry’s apartment building. Specifically, the store’s neon sign shines right into Kramer’s bedroom at night keeping him up all night, so he switches apartments with Jerry. Kramer starts trying to get the restaurant shut down, but Jerry initially opposed Kramer’s efforts because a college friend of his is the assistant manager at the restaurant.
The neon sign drives both Kramer and Jerry crazy, but after tasting the chicken, they both get hooked on it. It’s one of our favorite episodes of Seinfeld.
Enjoy this look back at the time Jerry and Kramer got hooked on Kenny Rogers Roasters’ chicken!
