Golden Ghetto Stroud's Stays Losing After Playing Chicken On Repairs With Landlord

Food for thought lunch link as it seems like the inner-suburbs of JoCo are going downhill rapidly . . . Read betwixt the lines on this one and maybe the nearby stalled development on Mission Gateway down the road played a factor. Checkit:

NO!!! please come on back to Belton and try to buy the sneads bbq restaurant one more time.. Great country setting and a big kitchen.. I know you tried once before and was turned down. New offer might just Nagy the new people out.

Strouds is great, but holy shit that stretch of shawnee mission parkway is cursed or something because no one wants to deal with it. The mission center project has been an empty field for decades and shows no sign of becoming anything other than a dirt field ever again and the chicken restaurant half a mile down the road doesn't want to stay

There are two Johnson Counties - the old, slightly dingy North JoCo, and the upscale and more prosperous South JoCo. North JC is aging and losing businesses. We counted a bunch of Used car lots, payday loan stores, and liquor stores along Metcalf. Signs of the times.

That place was never busy. That neighborhood in Fairway is filling up with young wealthy couples with dogs and kids. They are not a fried chicken and mashed spuds crowd.

Not to mention it sucked compared to the Northland location.

The fried chicken at Pizza Ranch is surprisingly good!

Any fried chicken lovers in South JoCo should try The Brass Onion. Delicious.
