Can't go wrong. Actually the "other" place down the road is also good, but we prefer Chicken Mary's. No matter what you order, it will be good.

One of the best chicken fried steaks around. Food is always good and great service and prices. Chicken Mary's has been here 50 plus years as with most of the chicken house on SEK.

Really, really good fried chicken! Ask for the wishbone when available - they are the best! Just good old fashioned cooking, and plenty of it. German potato salad is good. A little out of the way, but worth finding!

I'll start out with the positive, the onion rings are amazing! That is literally the only positive here. I've been several times, I've heard their managers yell at waitresses in a common area where diners can hear the whole thing! The waitress staff must have big cahoonas for putting up with that! Every waitress I have ever had has been... More

We were on our way back to KC after a bowling tourney and I suggested we go to Chicken Marys. I was the only one of the 7 who had been there in the past. We got there around 2:30 or so, Sunday afternoon, and we were fortunate enough to be seated right away. Service was great, food was great,... More

This is a cousin of Chicken Annie's a block away in the tiny rural village of Yale, Ks. It is about 5 miles NE of Pittsburg, Ks. It started as a small house with a pot belly stove in the middle of the dining area. The building now is a large restaurant with several rooms for the customers. Good food... More

For an out of the way location, this is a busy restaurant, and popular locals spot. You've heard "it's all about location, location, location", but Chicken Mary's proves it's not. Build a better fried chicken, and they will come. Worth the drive, but be prepared to wait for a table.

Went to college 50 years ago less than 10 minutes from this fantastic chicken restaurant. Love, love, love their chicken, German slaw and potatoe salad. They also throw in a red sauce spaghetti. That's the traditional meal we ate way back then. It is just as good as it has always been, an 11 of 10. They've expanded the menu... More
