I lived in the KC area most of my life. Didn’t know that Mrs. Peters had closed until I read this thread. Too bad.
Is the famous cook (can’t remember the name) from the old Boots & Coates restaurant in KC still working? If so, that place would have some world-class fried chicken.
RC’s in Martin City has pretty good chicken, and cottage fries with real chicken gravy.
For an antidote to KFC, try the original Go Chicken Go in KCK. Their chicken is OK, but their gizzards are killer. Order a pound with a cup of gravy, then sit in your car and dip the gizzards into the gravy. Good stuff! And open late at night.
Bill, I’m new to the site but thought I’d chime in on this. I left a vm for my Aunt to call me about Boots and Coats. My uncle who’s since passed owned a small portion of Boots and Coates and his brother was the Boots part of it and the main partner in the place. When I would fake being sick as a kid my Aunt would take me in there for lunch.
I’ll see if she has any info on the cook, etc….
Hope this helps.
Cool! Are you Darrin 1
or Darrin 2?
I’d probably fall more into the Daren 1 category. Years of sports have given me back problems but none as severe as Dick York had I’m sure.
