I don’t remember where I heard it but I had heard just recently that Strouds was going in at the 95th and Holmes area… that makes more sense than going that far south.
Countrygirl, I’m right there with you on Stroud’s versus Snead’s. I liked Snead’s well enough, but it is no match for a plate of Stroud’s chicken, fresh mashed potatoes, and cooked to death green beans covered in that pudding thick gravy!
Just wondering, how is Stilwell Smokehouse anymore? Used to be a favorite of ours whenever we were in town. In fact Doug, the owner, used to serve our Hot & Spicy Bar-B-Que sauce among others as part of his sauce smorgasbord. I had heard that Doug had sold the place to a corporate concern a couple years back and that it had gone downhill recently.
I heard Strouds was moving to the Sneads building and I might as well sign up for gall bladder removal now, cuz all I need is a vat of their gravy and a spoon and I’m set!!! MMmm!!!
Sneads was okay, but compared to Jack’s Stack or the Stilwell Smokehouse, they were bland.
And Chiefs sucked……..bad.
And dangit!! My name should be bareFOOTcountrygirl, not bareFOTcountrygirl! Sheeesh! I’m an eeeediot!
Is Snead’s moving or closing? Frankly, I prefer the burnt ends at Snead’s to Stroud’s chicken.
You may have missed my post to the news forum last week. Strouds has found a new south location. It will replace Snead’s BBQ at 171st & Holmes Road in Belton.
I’m not sure how quickly it will open – the building needs a lot of work. Which was why it was for sale.
Dug up this thread from the not so distant past, after seeing Stroud’s on the restaurant of the day. Needless to say, If you have not yet had the privilege of eating there, you are missing something special, although I am saddened by the closing of the original location. It had so much character. I heard that the old guy that used to play the upright piano over in the corner passed away a couple years ago. Anyone know about that?
P.S………….GO CHIEFS !
Strouds never was on wornall, it was at 85th and troost, about 2 miles east of wornall. Not a big deal but people that are not from kansas city may get confused.
Well…..hate to tell you this but the original Strouds down on Wornall closed this week to make room for road widening. Paper says they hope to take the front on the building and move it to another location. I never made it to that location. The one up north is good. Husband wont wait in a long line tho. Mrs’s Peters once. It was REALLY good. Dont know what happened there. I think with the big news that fried isnt good in our diets might be the demise to the fried chicken restaurants. If you are ever down Pittsburg KS way, there are several down there.
Ok, i just happened to stumble accross this thread by accident about 20 minutes after driving by strouds south. I work 2 block away and everyone around here knows the story so here it is….
the oak risge manor is still open but as most of you know there hours are maily dinner time and lunch 2 days during the week. Strouds south has been forced to close due to the Kansas city mirrouri renovation and expansion of troost and 87th streets which happens to be exactly where strouds is located. the last day of business was Saturday december 31st but have no fear loyal followers of the chicken……
As I have been told directly from the owners mouth, the restaurant will in fact be re-locating to 95th and holmes just about a mile and a half or 2 away from the original location.
lucleatus, I’m not trying to be snarky, but, it just occurred to me, did your friends happen to stop in at Stroud’s on a Monday? I wouldn’t swear to it, but I think they’re closed on Mondays.

I heard of Mrs. Peters’ restaurant several years ago on a Discovery Channel Special ’bout good places to eat around the USA. I made a mental note to stop there if in the area. Now, I guess, it’s too late. Anyone for the original KFC?
By the way, Mrs. Peters was interviewed on the TV special and said her secret was to slow fry the chick in a frying pan (not quickly as in a deep fryer) and to use just a simple coating, i.e., flour, salt, pepper over an egg wash.
Say it ain’t so! The original location wasn’t supposed to shut down until January 1st, 2006 and the North side Manor House wasn’t supposed to be effected at all. My KC sources should have emailed me about anything this serious. I haven’t heard from them so whaddaya say all you KC folks-is this true? No more Stroud’s???[:(]
I can’t believe I just used a smiley.
Friends visiting me in KS just went to Strouds and found both locations closed down. I’ll see what I can find out locally, but does anyone happen to know the story?
We tried Stroud’s out last night because of your review. We had about an hour wait to be seated, then we waited about 45 minutes for our food. We had to bring home to many boxes of food because of the portions served. It was totally excellant, worth the wait. We will go back to try out some of their other items on the menu. If you like fish try out a local chain called Jumpin Catfish, most excellant.[:D]
The Stonewall Inn on Pflumm, just north of College Blvd. in Johnson County has excellent fried chicken. The pork chops are very good as well.
