Stroud's South Pan Fried Chicken


Stroud’s South is a Kansas City landmark and offers a full menu of mouth watering American Classics and family favorites. Quincy “Q” McDowney reviews the old-fashioned, award winning pan-fried chicken served at Stroud’s South.

McDowney ordered the chicken dinner of All Dark Two Thighs and Two Legs for $16.75. The chicken meal was served family style with mashed potatoes, green beans and cinnamon rolls, included in the price.

After biting into a drumstick, he said, “Oh, oh my, um, um, um, umm. That’s so juicy… That gets five out of five um-ums.”

The five out of five um-um is McDowney’s highest food rating.

Stroud’s South is located at 4200 Shawnee Mission Parkway, Fairway Kansas. Customers can dine here Monday through Thursday, 4:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. This location continues the tradition that began in 1933 at the award winning, K.C. Landmark.

The Travel Channel has featured Stroud’s on Man v. Food and No Reservations, on the Food Network’s Best Thing I Ever Ate and KCPT’s Check Please. Stroud’s has been featured in National and International publications: Wall Street Journal, Gourmet Magazine, New York Times, People Magazine, Esquire, Bon Appetit, Conda Nast, and Playboy to name a few. The restaurant has received many national awards including the James Beard Award for Excellence and the Zagat Award for Best Restaurant.

Quincy “Q” McDowney is a former United States Marine and is a budding food critic. He was born and raised in Maryland, moving to Kansas City, Missouri in 1997 while in the Marine Corps. Q is known for making appreciative noises while dining, making him a favorite for any chef to have at their dinner table. His favorite foods include steak, seafood and potatoes. He is willing to try anything, as he explores flavors and textures, giving dishes one to five ‘um-ums’.
