After reading the Tripadvisor Reviews, I had to try this place. Located off the beaten path about 5 miles north of Pittsburg on Hwy 69 then 3.5 miles east on a rural road (there are huge signs on Hwy 69 advising you where to turn for this as well as Chicken Annie's which is just about a block further east...

If you only time for one meal let this be you guide... Marys - for larger portions and better sides. Annies - for better tasting chicken.

This trip was to take family from Wisconsin to Chicken Mary's. We had taken them there when they had visited before and this is where they requested to go this time. It is always a favorite. It is a very down home, family place with finger licking good food. The onion rings are wonderful, the German potato salad, coleslaw, and... More

You can read the other reviews and see it's not a fancy place, but it is really good food. It's definitely an experience if you aren't from the area. I grew up here and have moved away, so I only get it twice a year or so. The onion rings are something that I crave. They are super thin and... More

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!

Just finished a great dinner at Chicken Mary's, Frontenac, Kansas, aka Pittsburg, Kansas. I travel to Frontenac once a month for a volunteer gig. Had the time and was the appropriate time of day, (4:00pm to 11:00pm) to give Annie's a try last year. Had a chance, this week, to now try the competition(just acroos the parking lot from each...
