While visiting with family, we all made it to this restaurant recommended by the locals. Had to wait, was worth it. Food was fresh, simple basic ingredients, you get to taste the actual food. All tasted homemade and even the pickiest eaters in the group enjoyed the food. Our group of 9 enjoyed the chicken soup, fried chicken, biscuits, gravy,... More

Loved the fried chicken. I really liked the cinnamon rolls as well. Served family style. Take a little time to get the food, but worth the wait.

strouds is an institution in KC. Generations apparently have visited this place for special occasions and sunday dinner. Or some other day! portions are generous and shareable. Love the fired chicken livers...half order is more then plenty for a family. We always get the fried chicken and all of the sides and have plenty of leftovers. Not sure why they... More

The food is very good with all sides served family style. I believe it's the only restaurant in KC which offers solely fried chicken as their signature dish. You can order other items from steak and fish but it famous for the chicken. I have been frequenting Stroud's for 30 years and it is consistently good. My guess is if... More

Eating at Stroud's can't be very good for a person's health, but one can get a very tasty meal there. The wait to get in can be lengthy, but it's worth it if you like fried food. I'm more of a fan of the chicken-fried steak or chicken-fried chicken (with lots of gravy!), but the place is most famous for... More

It's more than just a saying at Stroud's, it's what makes their fried chicken the best in Kansas City and one of the best in the country. Family-style dining. The chicken is not of the "unbelievably crispy-kind." It is more like Shaker Chicken: appropriately crispy and ultra juicy. All the classic sides, nicely done. It's always crowded, with long waits,... More

Awesome as usual. The two of us enjoyed the standard, fried chicken, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy with cinnamon rolls. Our server, Jayme was just as wonderful as the food. Thanks again Stroud's

Great food! Like going to grandma's house for Sunday fried chicken dinner. Chicken is crispy, moist and piping hot. Sides are served family style. Lots of great comfort food and friendly wait staff.

This place serves the BEST fried chicken! Everything is fried in the pan, with home-made gravy. YUM. It is all served family style. Come hungry. It does get very busy, so you might have to wait. The only downside is they don't use a lot of spices to flavor anything, so it can be bland.
