Of the five chicken houses in Southeast Kansas, Chicken Mary's is probably the best. Chicken Mary's certainly has the best ambiance and decor. The food is superb, except the mashed potatoes are of the instant mix variety. Ordering the onion rings is a must. A...More

Do you need reservations for a large party of 12 on Sundays at 11:00 or 1130 am.?

Response from Devin G | Reviewed this property |
I don't know if they accept reservations or not, but I can tell you that on Sunday they are always paced, so it would probably be a good idea to inquire.
