Wife and I heard about Stroud's in KC (Overland Park), and just had to try it. Best fried chicken ever. Great crowd, good hostess.

This review is for the new Stroud's in Overland Park, in the old Mimi's building near 135th and Antioch. I assume the food is the same at all the other Stroud's, so I'm going to post my review here as a new thread hasn't been opened for the OP location. It's my birthday, and I've been dying to try Stroud's... More

This is an offshoot of the old Stroud's and is famous for pan-fried chicken. They do it really well, serve it family-style, along with great sides like your Grandma would have made (or you Wish she would have). The chicken is very good --- maybe not the best I've had in a restaurant, but awfully close. Cooked perfectly, with crisp... More

Stroud's reminds me of the old Yoga Berra saying, "that place is so busy! no one ever goes there anymore." Stroud's serves old fashion fried chicken, just like grandma used to make. No secret ingredients, it simple. The not so secret trick is they take the time to prepare every meal from scratch. You order, they get out a cast... More

We always love eating here, and look forward to mounds of mashed potatoes and fried chicken. We know that there is always enough left for lunch the next day, and everyone will leave full and happy. As usual at Strouds, our table was piled with mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy, cinnamon rolls, livers and that wonderful chicken fried chicken that... More

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
