Glad we stopped

We have tried to eat here a few times and finally today we found them open. It was worth the wait. The chicken was delicious and the onion rings even better. The German slaw and German potato salad were different but delicious. This place was very busy but the staff did great keeping up with demand.

Finally got to eat here after several years of drooling (okay sarcasm noted.) Three of us had chicken family style which included an onion ring appetizer (the narrow tasty ones) and sides that we chose being mashed potatoes and gravy, creamy cole slaw and apple sauce. It was a busy Sunday crowd and we expected a 30 - 60 minute... More

I have been eating here since late 60's. Same good food, and always a great value. Will continue to eat here until I die .

Tired of the same old faire, and both craving real fried chicken, we detoured a few miles and headed out in the country. So worth the extra 5 miles or so, and really sorry we haven't done this before. We showed up an hour before closing, which typically diminishes food quality and service, but thanks to the extra effort and... More

Apparently fried chicken is a specialty in Pittsburg. We saw three billboards and were intrigued. We were looking for a local eatery and picked Chicken Mary's. We are so glad we did. We had the 2 person meal which came with fresh sliced bread and butter, an onion ring appetizer, 3 sides, and 6 pieces of chicken for less than... More

I was in town for business and heard from the locals that this was the place to go for chicken. Nothing special about this chicken - it's just breaded with catfish batter. The place seems outdated and run down. I really don't see what the fuss is about - I'm sure there's better places to eat in town.

Chicken, big plateful of perfectly fried chicken. Three sides and some sweet tea, Done. Chicken livers, big plateful of not too crispy (most places can't manage this cooking method) perfectly fried livers. Three sides and some sweet tea. Done. Yes, Chicken Mary's is one of the two side by side dueling chicken places on the Missouri/Kansas boarder. I have tried... More

Growing up just miles from here, we had many chances to eat here or a competing chicken place. Trust me. Choose this one. Everything is better. The chicken breaking is flaky and delicious. THE onion rings are scrumptious. The German slaw and potato salad are great. Order them! We still visit about every other month even though it means a... More

Several people in town really like the chicken here, there are three local chicken places so you just have to decide for yourself which your u like best . Friendly family atmosphere at all three

You can't go wrong with any of the Chicken restaurants in the area, but Chicken Mary's has always been the favorite for my family. Extremely good food, and very affordable.
