Always great ribs. Tender & meaty. Excellent sides. Onion rings are wonderful. Have orders smoked turkeys for family parties. Always well prepared. Very good staff. Always friendly and helpful.

Always nice food and then this site wants me to add a minimum of 100 characters so I am rambling just to get there.

Go here often and also order for catering events at work - they have the best customer service and food is outstanding without breaking the bank either!

This place is awesome. Great ribs and sides but my all time favorite is the sliced chicken. OMG it is moist and the best ever

The reputation holds as one of KC best BBQ places to eat. Burnt Ends, ribs, large fries portion for two.

We bought virtually everything they offer. The sides (beans, cole slaw, fries) very excellent. We had ribs, brisket, pork, turkey. They were very good although I like my brisket more thick sliced versus thin. There were some small bones in the ribs which I disliked. Sauces were good.

Usually, these guys do a great job, but this day, not so much. I ordered the burnt end dinner to go and when I got it home, the burnt ends were more like chopped brisket.

Well this is it! The food here is so darn good it feels wrong! I LOVE the burnt end sandwich and the side of onion rings is enough for 2 or 3 people. The ribs are AMAZING also and they have plenty of meat on the bone! You can't go wrong with some spicy brisket and an ice cold beer... More

Johnny's in Olathe is a second location in Johnson County for this old, established BBQ restaurant. Food is consistently good. On our most recent visit, service was quite slow, but probably due to other groups having just ordered. Ambiance is very casual, but appropriate for a restaurant like this. Ribs a tender and tasty, and priced well.

Thank Lovestotravel0927
