Super Fried Chicken!

Always hot and fresh, great value for your money. This is a place we always bring out of town guests and relatives. Service is outstanding and so is anything on the menu!

We went with a party of 12 and everyone had a great meal. You have to try the onion rings and don't forget to save room for the lemon pie!

Down home cooking with very reasonable prices. Was an accidental unexpected surprise when friends took us there. Well worth finding.

This is the best chicken and chicken-fried steak restaurant in Eastern Kansas!! It is family owned for many, many years and provides great food at great prices. Service is great and a great place to meet people with a small-town atmosphere!! Great daily lunch specials, too.

On a recent Saturday afternoon, we stopped at this simple café for a takeout snack. The staff were helpful and we quickly chose slices of 3 different pies. All were delicious. My favorite was the lemon-raspberry. I've found the food OK, but ordinary, in the past here, but the pies were excellent.

It was my first time here but it definitely won't be my last. Everyone was so friendly. It is such a great family atmosphere. I ordered the chicken finger dinner that came with a roll and mashed potatoes. Everything was amazing! If you are anywhere in the area, you must stop here!

I was born & raised in emporia & have since moved to the KC area and I have yet to find fried chicken even remotely close to as good as this. The chicken, made from scratch onion rings & cheese balls can't be beat. Prices are really cheap & is a great meal for less than $10 pp. I tell... More

Great food and even better prices! Tea or coffee is included with your meal, plus a salad and a potato. I love their salads! Very good gravy on my mashed potatoes. This is the only place in the world that I will eat onion rings. You've got to try them! The atmosphere is very friendly and the pie is very... More

If you are looking for really great pan-fried chicken come to the world famous Olpe Chicken House. This is a THIRD GENERATION restaurant where everything is home made from original recipes. If your waitress isn't overly friendly it is because she has too much work to do and needs to help other guests. Fast service and always hot from the... More

I had the good fortune of eating here! Was on a business trip to Emporia, and per advice of local folks, decided to make the drive out to Olpe. Glad I did! Excellent place for fried chicken! Good homemade pies too!
