The winner of Missouri's Best Fried Chicken Award for 2023 is none other than Strouds in Kansas City. Yes, the city famous for its legendary ribs, burnt ends, and brisket, is also home to the best fried chicken in the state!

Strouds has its own website and on its website they say...

"Stroud’s Oak Ridge Manor provides Kansas City's best variety of award winning favorites. Located in North Kansas City, Oak Ridge Manor is housed in an expanded 1829 log cabin and farmhouse. Said to be one of the last of the traditional fried chicken restaurants to survive, Stroud's continues to serve Kansas City proudly. Bring the family and come and see us for dinner!"

On the menu, Strouds says this about its chicken...

"All Chicken is pan fried the Old-Fashioned way. It takes a little longer, but the flavor is worthwhile. Add Mike's Spicy Sauce to any Fried Chicken Entree"

The fried chicken can be ordered in 3 pieces, all white, all dark, chicken fingers, and the traditional dinner which is a leg, a thigh, a wing, and a breast, to see the full menu for yourself click here!

Don't get me wrong, I could eat KC BBQ all day long, but my first love has always been great southern fried chicken, and Strouds is giving me a reason to eat fried chicken in the BBQ capital of the Midwest...
