The chicken was very good , but the water & tea need improvement . The water is almost a sulfur tasting, I am guessing they must be using well water. I have tasted well water to taste like that though.

Offering to go cups along with my... More

Wanted to try the original that has been here for almost 80 years. It is hard to find but just go about 5 mi. north of town on Hwy 69. There are signs for C. Annie's and C. Mary's on the highway where you should turn right (when going North). After that it is just a straight shot to either... More

After reading about Chicken Annies on the net, learning that it was on Food Wars a few years back and all the hype I just had to try it for myself. So on Fathers Day this year we took the hour and half drive from home, Waited for 20 minutes to be seated, They were very unorganized for a restaurant... More

I called a couple of weeks in advance to plan an anniversary party for my parents who dated at Chicken Annies long ago. They arranged a quiet spot for our group in the back and we're fabulous in service. I can't thank everyone enough! It was such good people and good food!

I had been to Chicken Mary's earlier this year and wrote in my Tripadvisor Review "it was the best chicken ever". When I was in Oklahoma recently I decided to take the side trip to Pittsburg and try Chicken Annie's Original. Both Chicken Annie's Original and Chicken Mary's are off the beaten path about five miles north of Pittsburg on... More

We had to make a trip to Pittsburg and decided to try Chicken Annie's. The restaurant is rich in history. The service is fast and friendly. The decor is fun. You can't go wrong with anything you order but of course you have to have the chicken and I highly recommend the German Potato Salad. I wasn't as happy with... More
