I love the chicken gizzards and their hot sauce. I first thought I wouldn't like the sauce, but totally addicted now. The gizzards are very tender. I'm wondering if marinated in buttermilk? I wish they were closer to us, but the Troost location is not to far off. Prices are reasonable, sides are unpredictable. Sometimes good, sometimes not. BBeans are... More

Oh this chicken was so delicious, so well-seasoned. And I tried gizzards for the first time here as well. Aside from being a little chewier than a regular piece of chicken, they were still super tasty. I wish they had one in Texas. You're not paying five-star prices; don't expect a five-star restaurant experience and décor. It's fast food folks.

We were looking for some "authentic Kansas City BBQ" and when those places were filled to capacity, we passed this place on Troost. Upon sight, I drove right passed it, did not attract my eye. However, my passengers smelled the aroma and we had to turn around and try some. It was surprising to see they needed a on sight... More

I grew up eating this food. But sometimes you find a hair in your food lately which is gross. So I was eating gizzards today and there was a hard piece like a bone in my mouth. I took it out and it was a hard black piece of plastic similar to a fork prong. I will NEVER patronize this... More

Nasty, nasty, nasty!!! This place is gross. Not to mention it's in the heart of the ghetto. Don't be fooled just because UMKC is on the same street. Not safe!!! Oh and I can't tell you how many times they have busted people here for drugs (including employees.) There are better chicken places in safer areas!!! STAY AWAY!

I recently have moved back to missouri after being in Florida for ten years. I have craved Go Chicken Go on a daily to weekly basis since I have been gone. I currently reside down in the Springfield Mo. area and today could not stand the wait any longer. I sent my wife to KCMO troost store to pick up... More
