Stroud's in Fairway , Kansas recently opened for lunch and that is a very good thing. We had a fabulous lunch of their specialty pan-fried chicken that is served piping hot with sides of creamy mashed potatoes, green beans cooked with a bit of bacon, pan gravy and cinnamon rolls. We started our meal with the chicken liver and gizzard... More

Looking at reviews for Kansas City, MO I saw that Stroud's was ranked 20th out of 1199 (!) and enthusiastically decided to give it a try--granted it was the Fairway location listed here. Here's my take on it: FOOD: 3/5 I really don't understand what all the hype is about. By comparison, the chicken and homestyle meal at the Brookeville... More

A terrific break for your taste buds from the assault of barbeque sauce & spices while in Kansas City. Stroud's is kind of a hidden gem. We ate at the 4200 Shawnee Mission Parkway location. The interesting thing about eating there is that well over half of the people dining there were locals. That should tell you something. Everyone orders... More

Just like BBQ, you can't leave KC without eating this fried chicken! It's good old comfort food with gravy so come hungry! You have to try their homemade ranch dressing and chicken noodle soup too. Their servers are amazing and most have worked there for years (and even decades). While I still miss the original Stroud's location off Troost, this... More

This is the best fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and green bean restaurant in the country. It serves family style and is a KC historic tradition. Be early or wait. Get the white 3 breast meal and take some home for another meal. They will deliver fresh sweet rolls at the end of your meal. Eat them there while they... More

The food was great but the mashed potatoes tasted grainy like they were instant potatoes or it could have been dry milk they used. At any rate, every thing else was grandma's house good. I had the chicken dinner and my husband had the chicken fried steak. First the chicken was so juicy that I could have licked off the... More

The chicken here is fantastic! The service was very attentive and helpful with deciding on what to have. My friends and I would all eat here again! Service is family style with sides served in refillable bowls.

I had told my husband that this is the chicken I grew up with. Admittedly the new location lacks some of the old -- an out-of-tune piano, uneven wood floors, scenic views of the industrial area the old Stroud's was located in -- but most of all, waitresses who qualified for Social Security ten years ago. Nevertheless, my husband ordered... More

The chicken and potatoes (all versions) are good, the green beans better, and the gravy is to die for. But this place is falling off a little. It would be easy to say it's because they moved from the Troost location. Or the year or so they were closed while moving. But that's been a long time ago. This restaurant... More

I fondly remember going to Stroud's many times when they were located on Troost in KCMO. After they had moved to Fairway, I tried it once several years ago. Even though I was disappointed last time I went, I thought maybe they were having an off day and so I wanted to give them another chance. This last time in... More
