The first Go Chicken Go was started by Bill and Mary Hendrx in Kansas City, Kansas in 1969. They opened their fried chicken restaurant in a "Go Gas" gasoline station. Their three sons purchased the restaurant in 1985 and expanded to 5 restaurants, including this location in Olathe, Kansas.
Up until preparing this review, I had only tried Go Chicken Go's fried gizzards and livers. The gizzards are particularly popular where I work and when someone makes a Go Chicken Go run, they end up bringing back at least 6 orders and a few extra servings of the secret hot sauce "G-Sauce." This Go Chicken Go location sells bout 300 pounds of gizzards a day and the other locations sell even more.
But preparing this review I tried several items. I wasn't impressed with the mashed potatoes, French fries, Cole's slaw or rolls, but the the fried chicken at Go Chicken Go is as good as I have had anywhere in Olathe.
The Go Chicken Go building is nothing special, but everything is clean, including the rest rooms. Go Chicken G0 offers counter or drive up service.
A 3 piece chicken dinner with mashed potatoes, cole slaw and 2 Rolls runs $7.28. 5 wings are $8.03 with the same sides or $5.65 with just a roll. A bottle of the popular Go Chicken Go G-sauce is $3.49.
