If you're in the Joplin area...Chicken Mary's is worth a visit... It was clean....the waiter was very good...and the chicken was great...and lots of it.... It came with homemade bread and sides...I can't remember having any better fried chicken...don't skip the onion rings... They r lip smacking good

My family eats here at least once a month and we all love it. The chicken is crispy on the outside and juicy inside. There are plenty of sides to choose from and I love the German potato salad. When you eat there it feels like you are having a good family experience as it is a very cozy atmosphere... More

Ahh! The fabled Chicken Mary’s I’ve heard so much about … My sister moved to Joplin MO three years ago and she has raved about their meals at Chicken Mary’s ever since. I am so glad to finally find the time to visit, and I am so happy they took me to Chicken Mary’s! Now, it’s not a fancy place... More

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.
