About Stroud’s

The year was 1933. Prohibition had just been repealed, we were between two World Wars and Stroud’s Restaurant was built. Stroud’s started as a BBQ restaurant by Guy and Helen Stroud on the county line at 85th and Troost. The road house remained a BBQ restaurant until World War II. During the war, because beef was being rationed, Helen Stroud started serving pan-fried chicken. The original chicken dinner was only 35 cents! In 1977, two Kelly’s Westport Inn bartenders, Mike Donegan and Jim Hogan, purchased Stroud’s. After inheriting a couple of Helen’s cooks and recipes, they came up with the menu we still serve today.


In 1983, Mike Donegan, his twin brother, Dennis, and Jim Hogan purchased Oak Ridge Manor in the northland. A third location in Wichita, Kansas, joined the Stroud’s family in 1992. The original Stroud’s location closed its doors in 2006, and re-opened in Fairway, Kansas, in 2008. The Fairway location joined forces with KC Hopps in 2013, and together they opened a location in Overland Park, KS. Through the years, Stroud’s has received many national awards including the James Beard Award for Excellence and the Zagat Award for Best Restaurant. Stroud’s has been honored with appearances on the Travel Channel’s Man v. Food and No Reservations, Food Network’sThe Best Thing I Ever Ate and KCPT’s Check Please. Stroud’s has also been featured in several national and international publications. The Wall Street Journal, Gourmet Magazine, The New York Times, People Magazine, Esquire, Bon Apetite! and Playboy Magazine, to name a few.


Mike Donegan, along with his caring and professional staff, operate all of the Stroud’s locations with the same ultimate goal of serving delicious, home-cooked meals in a fun, friendly atmosphere. Stroud’s in Fairway and Overland Park, Kansas are also managed and owned by KC Hopps, Ltd., and a group of local investors.
