    What a bunch of bullshit. Strouds is still packing them in. Just this past Sunday I had to wait 45 minutes for a table. Two weeks ago Saturday night we had takeout and could not get a parking space. All of my friends in Kansas City said the KU game killed them along with the snow but Strouds had a line out the door, in the snow!

    Screw all the “Kansas City” fans who were pissed when Strouds moved, their own city goverment ran Strouds out. The new location has EXACTLY the sae chicken and al of the sides etc…and tastes even better in KANSAS! Get over it Kansas City, you locs this iconic chicken joint and Kansas gained a classic. The way I see it, just like KU vs MU, you assholes lose again! Maybe you should go to the power and Light Distric and eat, they stole your tax money to build it and there ain’t one good joint. I hope all Kansas City restaurants leave and come to Kansas where we appreciate them and support.

    I am dreaming of those cinnamon rolls as I type this. Dream on suckers.

    The location north of the river is in KCMO.

    I think the new Strouds is doing just fine. For all you Kansas homers, just remember if KS wasn’t next to MO, particularly KCMO you’d be like Far South Dakota. Wake me up when your biggest tourist attraction isn’t a furniture store named after another state, you have an airport we can use and get a REAL sports franchise. Until then you’re just a bunch of grifters.

    There will never be peace on Earth, for there is no goodwill towards any men. People are not racist or stateist or predjudiced, PEOPLE ARE JUST FKING MEAN, and they enjoy finding any little thing / excuse for being mean to others at any opportunity. People are just fking mean spirted, it is wierd.

    This isnt about KS OR MO who fking cares? It is juts about being bitchy and mean.

    LMOA, this is just breaking balls. Nowhere close to being MEAN or BITCHY. See almost any post by jojo for the true meaning of mean AND bitchy.

    Lighten up, it’s Holy Week.

    That is because jojo is mean and bitchy and a psychopath. I would call her a caaunt, but it might get deleted.

    Oh boy, you KCMO fans are all jealous that Strouds jumped the border and is better off in Kansas. Still the best fried chicken in the USA, now just in a new home WHERE THEY BELONG.

    Love Kansas, Love Strouds, Love Jayhawks.

    Who needs tourist attractions when Johnson County is the # one tax paying county in Kansas or Missouri. Mission Hills, beautiful homes and Hallbrook, c’mon, we got it all and a National Championship along with THE BEST FRIED CHICKEN. Take that and stick it in your pipe.

    Did I mention the best school districts? How amny schools did your mayor close this week?

    Let’s not even talk crime rate here my friends, were talking good old fashioned pan fried chicken at Strouds.

    I think Johnson county has had a 550% increase in residents in 6 years, Kansas City has lost 25 % WTF?

    By the way, have you tasted Strouds Shrimp? Way to big for Kansas City, just so good! Take a ride across the border and spend some money in Kansas where we treat you with respect cause we love you.

    And don’t forget those cinnamon rolls!

    HUH??
    I currently live in KS (I have lived in MO – Border Star RULEZ!!/i>), I graduated from KU, but I consider myself a Kansas Citian. I bet even hearne in PV claims he is a Kansas Citian. I have no idea why all the fuss about that imaginary border thingy.

    I could not care less when a visiting band says “HELLO MISSOURI, OR HELLO KANSAS OR HELLO KANSAS CITY or whatever … as long as they say hello.

    The uppity freeks who worry WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT THAT crap maybe are too spoiled and dont have enough problems in their lives, so they invent some.

    OK OK OK … with that said ….. We have just started cooking our own pan fried chicken. As I said above, Strouds is good, but it is a hassle due to crowds ( YES STILL)( I have no idea why it was even said that about crowds etc etc ) ANYWAY… I am perfecting our recipe as we speak today. We currently have chicken breast prepping ( takes 24-36 hours) but if anyone is interested I will share the secrets. We have gone through 5-6 batches in the last month, and I think “Tonights the night”.

    We got on this kick becasue the local markets have been selling chicken breast meat for very low prices ( currently bone in breasts are only 88 cents/pound at hyvee).

    There are 4 or 5 lil tricks we have learned. If anyone wants to hear the recipe tricks, just ask.

    I would normally doubt that anybody who spells and yells like KUAlum84 actually went to college. However, since we are talking about a KU education, I suppose it’s true. Chill the f*ck out dude. Not every JOCO resident or KU fan is a dick or douchebag, but it’s people like you who keep perpetuating the stereotype. Now, stay the f*ck out of my state. Don’t come here for any Royals or Chiefs games or any concerts downtown. You can go to your T-Bones and Wizards games instead. No wait, you can’t even do that since they’re in Wyandotte and not JOCO. Ummmmm, I guess you can just go f*ck yourself instead!

    Huh?
    I always laugh when a “person” says something like “Chill the f*ck out dude”

    THEN … says something like…

    “stay the f*ck out of my state. Don

    Hello, if you read the Star story Stroud’s owner said the lunches did not work. They wouldn’t quit a five or seven day a week lunch for the home baseball sched if the $ was there in Fairway.
    The Cars you see during the day; did you notice there are a number of office buildings using the parking?

    What assholes you all are. The place is packed at dinner and that is where the money is. I can spell better than any asswipe dick suck from Kansas City or MU.

    Go to Church’s Chicken on Wornall or KFC, you think that is what chicken is supposed to be anyhow.

    Go see your Royals LOSE AGAIN!!!!

    If you want to taste REAL chicken, and side dishes that aren’t BLAND, drive to Springdale, Arkansas and go to AQ Chicken. Puts Strouds to shame.

    HELLO, if you recall, they DID NOT serve lunch at the other ( uner the bridge) location seven days a week either. Unless I am mistaken, it was Friday only. As far as dinner, the place is packed.

    A Friend forwarded this link to me. I considered just taking it all in, but I just can’t keep quiet. Over the past few years we have all heard of someones family who has been affected by the economy. Established restaurants have closed their doors many new start ups with great ideas just had bad economical timing.
    The rising costs of everything but our wages. Not going to go political on you. Just wanted to put a thought out there. Do you suppose that Stroud’s… even with their excellent reputation, the many awards they have received (not to mention James Beard) have been affected by the economy at all? I don’t think they have been granted immunity. Do you go out to dinner as often as you did before the economic crisis?
    Do you suppose that your neighbors do? How about at work do you have all the perks you used to? Like company dinners, catered lunches…I leave with the hope that if we are able, we will shop and support locally owned small businesses.
