I have never been to Kansas City, so cannot help out on this, but It did get me to thinking. Out of the entire city of Houston, I cannot think of one place that is known, or that people go to specifically for fried chicken. Cleburnes cafeteria makes good chicken, but is not know as a "chicken dinner" place. "This Is It!" Soulfood makes good fried chicken too, but only one or two days a week.
There are Church’s, KFC’s, and Popeyes everywhere though. There used to be a place on the Huntsville highway called the Chicken Shack that was known for its chicken and rolls with honey.
I don’t know if the lack of chicken dinner places here is due to all of the chains, or lack of demand. I do know that everytime I drive to Dallas, I think of the Chicken Shack and miss it.
Since I go to KC at least one week a month, I will make it my mission to do some investigation on this topic. Strouds hands down is the best and something you should do if you are remotely close to KC. Also, for the adventurous types-Chicken Mary and Chicken Annie in SE Kansas are worth checking out!
Ok, I’ve been braving forums on Waffle House, Krispy Kreme, Turdecken, hostess donuts etc and have refrained from riveting remarks. Surely there must be SOMEONE in the Kansas City area who can comment and/or respond to this VERY SERIOUS roadfood concern!
All of this talk about KFC and the ten best of the year got me thinking. I went to Stroud’s this past year and of course my experience there was outstanding, however when I took out some of the old Roadfood editions from storage I noticed that there were quite a few Chicken places in the KC area ie Ms Peters, etc, however now it seems that Stroud’s is the only one left. What happenned to them? Where did they go? Why did they go out of business? Have they been replaced with new ones waiting to be discovered and reviewed? Can some of the folks from the Kansas City area explain what happenned[?]
Oh, come on, I’m sure there is someone out there who must have an answer??
