Go, Chicken, Go - Kansas City

Well? Should I go Chicken go?
I love fried chicken - cold, hot, whatever I love it.
I also love a local fried chicken "fast food" place - so, I came across this one! I work near the troost location.

Anyone been? Are the "sides" good - esp. gravy - I'm a gravy freak, too. Please weigh in - is it worth the calories?

        Love the bullet proof glass.

        Excellent fried chicken. But get yourself a full order of gizzards and a bypass.

        1. re: chileheadmike

          I would go with the livers, rather than the gizzards.
          The yellow gravy looks gross, but it is addictive. I love Go Chicken Go.

      2. All good reviews it sounds like! I'm going..will report back!

        1. If you want fast food fried chicken, and not sick of chains go for it, it is worth it.

            We tried Go Chicken Go for dinner last night - it was tasty.

              They helped out with a fundraiser we threw a few weeks back and supplied gizzards...most of the "city folk" had not tried them before, had no idea what they were and have become hooked. They were coming to us asking, "now what were these things" and "so when I go to GCG I just order gizzards"...I guess they were a hit!

              1. re: amy_rc

                ha, that's funny! i will not try them so that i do not get hooked.

                1. re: jdl98

                  i can pretty much agree with the above.. get an order of gizzards and liver and get the hot sauce that goes with it.

          2. Their gizzards are the best and I'll drink the G sauce right out of the bottle!

              Mrs. Deke, I thought the gizzards were a "guy" thing:-)

              After years doing the gizzards with hot sauce, I tried the fried chicken for the first time in October. Really quite good.

              chileheadmike , There is no bullet proof glass at the Olathe location.

                I tried to attach a photo, but it doesn't seem to have worked.

                Here is what a half order of gizzards looks like.

                  The Olathe branch is what I call psueudo Go Chicken Go. The real deal on on 7th Street in the 'Dotte.

                  The Olathe branch is good for a quick gizzard fix, however.

                  1. re: KansasTravel

                    The only thing keeping Go Chicken Go from being PERFECT is that they don't deliver! I'm glad to find out about all these other locations. The one I live at is on Troost :-)
