Wen to chicken Mary's by recommendation. It is a nice very casual local chicken place. The chicken was good but I don't think it deserves the win of food wars. The mash potatoes and gravy didn't have much flavor. I think they were instant potatoes and the green beans were about the same, and from can. The waitress was very... More

Out of the way, great service. great onion rings. Probably average chicken, a lot of crust but served very hot. Sides were average with sparse amount of gravy. Green beans very bland with no seasoning.

If you're in or near Pittsburg, KS for some reason, by all means check out Chicken Mary's. The food is good, the service is excellent, atmosphere and location so-so. My argument is that I wouldn't call this a destination restaurant, in spite of the hype over many years. If you're anywhere near Kansas City, just go to Stroud's instead, and... More

If you missed the sign on 69 or didn't see them on the food network, you better be from the area or you'll never find this place. If you do find it, you'll return every time you are in the area. The place is all about breasted chicken and great prices. Tender and juicy chicken with a crunchy crust. A... More

Judging from the number of chicken restaurants in the area, they like their chicken in SE Kansas. The chicken here was excellent, nicely fried, and generously proportioned. I LOVE it that they fried the backs separately--in fact you could order a whole bunch of them. The German potato salad and slaw were great too. Excellent value. Considering how crowded it... More

I have been coming to chicken Mary's for over 50 years, and my parents another 20 or so. Absolutely the best German fried chicken, slaw and potatoes.
