We eat here when we are on our way to OK. I usually do not get the mashed potatoes but this time thought I would. I was really surprised that they use instant potatoes! I thought for sure a place this old fashioned would have real mashed potatoes!

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
