Stroud's Restaurant & Bar


Last night, after some serious Target shopping, we decided to head up to Stroud's and check out the wait. We lucked out, it was only 30 minutes, so we put our name in and sat outside and waited. For those of you who have never been, Stroud's serves up some of the best pan-fried chicken you could ever eat (out side of my Mom's that is). You have choices on what types of dinners you want, from the regular dinner to all white, or all breast. They serve incredible pork chops, chicken fried chicken, hamburger steak and my favorite, the Chicken Fried Chicken. It's a boneless, skinless breaded breast that is pounded and fried. I get mine with the gravy on the side, so that the leftovers can be heated without gravy on top. Dan usually orders the regular dinner that comes with 1 wing, 1 leg, 1 thigh and 1 breast. There are also fish and steak choices that I hear are really good.
Speaking of gravy they serve up a nice thick, peppery chicken gravy that is great on their homemade mashed potatoes or thinly sliced cottage fries, my favorite. They also serve up green beans just like mom made, overcooked with bacon and onions and ever so tasty. The sides come family style and they bring more if you run out.You also get a basket of warm and delicious cinnamon rolls. You can start with a salad or a nice bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup, always a winner in the colder months. They are located north of the river at 5410 NE Oakridge Rd. Kansas City MO 64119 816-454-9600. www.stroudsrestaurant.com. Just leave your calorie counters at home and enjoy some of the best home style cooking in the area.

Strouds is HORRIBLE!!!!!! I believe my server was a racist!! It took a gesture to the manager to get her to fully service our table. And the chicken, this so called world famous chicken was greasy, bland, and cold. Whoever calls this the best chicken must be from Wyoming or something. I really hope they didn't give me the" we don't want u back" chicken because of the color of our skins. I may be back, but I think I will take some white people with me.

I have NEVER had any issues there. The pork chops are the best I have ever eaten and so is the chicken fried chicken. Nope, not a northerner either. Sounds like you have yankee issues. Who is the racist? I am just going off YOUR comments.

If I could only eat at one restaurant in KC, it would be Stroud's North. Everything on the menu is fantastic: Chicken the best around, pork chops gigantic and tasty, ribs better than some of the top BBQ joints, catfish the real deal, shrimp the biggest & best in town. We eat there every week & the service is superb every time! (There has NEVER been a racist bone in this place!)
