We found Stroud's on the Man vs Food website and we thought it would be a nice, new opportunity to experience a restaurant potentially off the beaten path. Wow were we right and in for a treat. Stroud's North has a wonderful ambience and decor that add to your dining experience. The ability to wander the 18 acres of land that they possess was an extra treat. The wait was estimated at 45 minutes, but we were able to be seated within 20. While looking at the menu, we were able to get a glimpse of what others were ordering and everything looked wonderful. We had several questions about the menu and were extremely pleased to learn that virtually everything was home/hand made. That just added to our love of the place, knowing we were going to be enjoying a 'down home' meal. We ordered gizzards and chicken fried chicken with fries and mashed potatoes as our sides. Not only were we absolutely blown away by the size of the portions (enormous), but also with the added bonus of fresh green beans and cinnamon rolls to close things out and really bust your gut. All in all, we were very impressed with everything about the place and look forward to visiting KC again, if for no other reason than to have another shot at Stroud's.
