Olpe Chicken House celebrates 50 years Thu, 05/1/08 7:04 PM (permalink)
I know that several Roadfooders have been to the Olpe (KS) Chicken House. I thought you might enjoy today's story in the Emporia Gazette; the Chicken House is celebrating 50 years of ownership in the Coble family. It's always nice to see this longevity in Roadfood restaurants, particularly in an age of chain restaurants, etc.

    Thanks for posting the newspaper article.....I missed this the first time around. I was just there a few months ago and it is a classic small town restaurant where the locals truly eat. The skin of the chicken was incredibly brittle and delicous. Great onion rings, too. Too bad I passed on the homemade pie.

    Congratulations to the Chicken House!
