One of my annual Kansas City visit cravings are gizzards and liver at Go Chicken Go. We went there for lunch today...and I regret to say...it was just alright. I ordered the full order mixed and we got more gizzards than liver (my favorite). There also seemed to be more breading that meat...they sell food by the weight. Too bad,... More

Took a group of 8 senior citizens here on a Friday at noon. It is a busy place, but we found spaces for our 3 cars in the parking lot. Drive thru line was wrapped around the building to the street and the line inside was long also, but we saw that most people were getting their chicken to go.... More

Drive through ten cars deep at this "dive" chicken joint@ 3:30 pm on a Saturday afternoon. We stop here every trip just for the chicken livers! Full order is $7.20. Worth the wait! Also got a large sweet tea!

This is not the place for healthy food and I love it for that very reason. Its fried chicken with a handful of sides. The gizzards are the main item ordered the most whenever I'm there. Their in house hot sauce is great on more than just their chicken as well.

Just the best chicken gizzards in the entire world. Side of slaw and a pepper, what a meal. The rest of the chicken is great too.

This place is FAAAAR better than Strouds and a whole lot cheaper. I know this is a strange comparison, but I think out-of-towners often spend a lot of money on over-priced food, when there are small local joints like this that are superior!

Had a co-worker run and pick up gizzards and livers boxes. If you want "The best Gizzards and Livers" you have found the spot. The hot sauce is the best we have ever had. My hats off to you guys, keep up the good work.

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
