This small home town cafe has nice management and staff. The food was fresh and hot when delivered to our table. The food was a little slow to arrive to our table but that is to be expected since it is not prepared until it is ordered. Overall a wonderful meal and experience. We will absolutely be eating here again.... More

A family owned restaurant with great tasting fried chicken. The homemade onion rings are delicious! They have very reasonable prices and friendly staff. The restaurant has recently been updated and looks nice, it's in a small town and worth the drive.

Chicken was very good, salad was minimal-chopped iceberg lettuce with carrot shavings. Service was terrible. If they don't know you they don't care. Very slow in taking order-not busy, just gabbing with kitchen staff. 2 tables ( only 4 people in the restaurant) had to wait for food to be prepared until kitchen staff prepared lunch for waitresses and staff...

We have been going to the Chicken House for over 40 years. But, the last three times we've eaten here, we've been disappointed. The infamous fried chicken was overcooked once, the appetizers have dwindled in size and have been overcooked, and service has slowed considerably. It should not take 40 minutes to get the salad course. After today's visit, we... More

My wife and I met some friends that came down from Wichita to eat at Olpe Chicken House. We had never eaten here before and wanted to try them. This restaurant is in a small town of maybe 400 folks. So when you go in it's nothing fancy, you seat yourself, waitresses are not in any hurry lol. But it's... More

We had driven by this place on a trip from Tulsa to Emporia a year ago. I'm in Emporia to visit again so we thought we'd give it a try. I got the 2 piece with fries and my friend got the chicken tenders. The meals are supposed to include coffee or tea but if you order a soft drink... More

This is a great family run restaurant. It is in the small town of Olpe, so don't expect a modern city experience. Do however expect some awesome fried chicken and great sides. Do not come here for the salad as it is a side compared to the huge juicy cooked to order chicken, great string fries, and awesome sides. As... More

My wife and I stopped in late Saturday afternoon. We each ordered a simple 2 piece chicken dinner with salad. Service was slow. The ice water tasted horrible! It was like garden hose water in the hot sun. Food was nothing special, chicken was decent, but nothing to "crow" about. Green Beans were artificial colored and I hesitated in eating... More

Decided to try this place as we have heard a lot of people say it's the best chicken around. The ambiance was nothing to brag about. The service was slow. And the prices were incredibly high for the amount of food you got! The chicken was good. But for the price I paid, I could have gotten a 16 piece... More

If you like fried chicken this is a must stop. This is an older no frills restaurant in a very small town, that feature fried chicken. No fast food here, you wait a full 20 minutes to get your order and it is worth it. The chicken dinner is offered as two or four piece, white, dark, or mixed along... More
