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....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...More
