Our Story

Go Chicken Go originated in 1969 in Kansas City, KS near the existing 7th Street location. Formerly a service station, Go Gas, operated by Bill and Mary Hendrix who are the original creators of the now locally famous fried chicken, gizzards and livers. It all began by selling fried chicken inside the service station, soon the gas pumps were removed and more chicken fryers moved in. The idea took off and Go Gas soon went thru a name change and became Go Chicken Go.  

What started as a family business has remained family owned and operated for over 40 years. Bill and Mary Hendrix had three sons, Bill, Mike and Dennis, who all began working in the original restaurant at a very young age. In 1985 the three brothers purchased the restaurant from their parents and have expanded the concept to a total of five locations throughout the Kansas City area.

Go Chicken Go has remained dedicated to serving high quality, fresh chicken at a moderate price with fast, friendly service. The dedication to a great tasting product and friendly service has been attracting loyal customers and fans for many years. Besides the three owners of the company several other family members help contribute to the success of the business by working in the stores, managing locations and managing the office of Go Chicken Go.  

Go Chicken Go focuses on continuing to be a local favorite in Kansas City. With great tasting chicken, gizzards and livers that make you want to come back everyday, famous hot sauce called G-Sauce and chicken strips that make your mouth water there is something for everyone in your family to enjoy. The restaurant has been a part of our family for over four decades but more importantly we love being a part of your family and Kansas City.
