Perhaps my expectations were too high. The reputation of the restaurant is excellent, but my fried chicken was ordinary. The homestyle fixins were ok and there are always leftovers to take away, but if it had matched my expectation, we would have cleaned our plates.

I can honestly say my mothers spirit was cooking in the kitchen. We got the family style chicken. 2 huge breast, 2 thighs a wing and a leg just like my mom used to fry it on Sunday. Salad, Green beans, homemade mashed potatoes, chicken crackling gravy, and 4 cinnamon rolls. All included in the meal. Excellent service as well.... More

We try to go here when visiting family in KC. Either with a group or just another couple. Service is excellent, and very much on the ball. Fried chicken is always a must!! Always fresh and hot cooked to perfection please save room for hot cinnamon rolls!! Can be very crowded at the dinner hour--but wait is totally worth it.... More

Tried Stroud's for the first time, because I heard that the fried chicken was the best. Well, the fried chicken was true to form. It was delicious and moist! I'm pretty sure it was the best fired chicken I have ever had. (sorry mom). The salad was good with their homemade ranch dressing. For the other sides, no big frills,... More

I visit Stroud's every year and it remains a favourite. I always find the staff friendly and this year they went the extra yard. We casually mentioned that we just happened to have amongst our crowd of 7 two people who were having birthdays (a 13th and a 90th) and a wedding anniversary. Little cakes and sparklers came at the... More

Stroud's and Go Chicken Go do not belong in the same dining category so maybe each could have won in their respective categories but anyway ... plenty was brought to the table. I had the 3 piece chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and green beans. The green beans tasted like they had been cooked with some butter which is not... More

If you go to Stroud’s for anything other than fried chicken, you’re in the wrong place. They have the best fired chicken in the USA.

Heard great reviews about this place and finally had the opportunity to try some of the "best" fried chicken in KC. Service was great, everyone was friendly and attentive. The appetizers were good and cooked perfectly. My coworker and I each ordered the two piece meal with a breast and wing. The wing was cooked just right, crispy skin and... More

The fried chicken is excellent.The green beans are loved by many, but I am not that big a fan of onion. The mashed potatoes are good and the gravy is wonderful, Now they offer cinnamon rolls for after dinner. They children like them, I find them to sugary. The fries are good. Over all not a bad family place.

You want fantastic fried chicken serve with family-sized sides of mashed potatoes (or cottage fries), gravy made by gods, green beans (with pork chunks), and homemade cinnamon rolls, plus chicken livers as an appetizer? This is the place to go. If I was on death row, this would be one of my last meals on Earth.
