Strouds on I-35 is as good as its ever been. Big meaty & moist pan fried chicken. Potatoes and gravy, Oh the gravy! Top it all off with hot cinnamon buns, complimentary. Absolutely someplace you should go. Health nuts will hate it.

Absolutely the best fried chicken, anywhere............ the old farmhouse ambience is wonderful. I hear that the pork chops are really good, but why come for pork chops when you can get the best fried chicken in the universa?

I love strouds. Its the first place I eat after flying in from Hawaii, and I make sure to eat it at least once more before I leave again. Favorite restaurant ever.

Wow - If people actually knew what REAL pan fried chicken tasted like - they would be amazed. Fantastic food - enormous portions and creative side dishes make this place a must see. Prices are very reasonable - and downright cheap when you consider the portions. Great family place - bring the kids - low key and friendly. Applesauce, Beans,... More

Holy cow I forgot how good this place was since I'm not from around there. Portions are HUMONGOUS. You can definitely share or have plenty of leftovers. Only complaint was everything needed seasoning but I know peoples' taste buds differ. I thought everything could use some salt. The cinnamon bread we had them hold off on until the end makes...

Strouds now has multiple restaurants, but this is by far the best. We don't know whether it's cast iron skillets are the oldest or what. We just know that if going to Stroud's we're going North. All of us have our own favorites. My mom is going to order the Chicken Feied Chicken, me the wings, my guys are going... More

This place is awesome. If you're looking for the best comfort food in KC, this is it. Definitely recommend the fried chicken, applesauce, green beans and the cinnamon rolls.

My family began going to this restaurant when it was still called Sandy's Oak Ridge Manor. The atmosphere appeals to the historian in me. Built in 1844, it became a restaurant in 1854. Stroud's is well known in this area as having delicious food at reasonable prices. As well as hardy portions. A comfortable, homey environment with excellent staff as... More

we live in independence and absolutely hate the strouds in Independence. We drive north to find a good restaurant with great chicken and friendly servers. Will not visit the strouds in independence again, tried 3 times and always poor.
