Johnny’s BBQ in Olathe, KS
Tonight I visited Johnny’s BBQ in Olathe, KS. I had planned my official review of their barbecue by visiting the Johnny’s in Mission, but a couple people noticed that I said I was completed with Olathe BBQ and mentioned that I hadn’t been to Johnny’s yet. I don’t mind adding the second location to my list even though it’s owned by the same people, so I thought I’d check it out.
Johnny’s website is http://johnnysbbqkc.com/ if you want to check it out.
I’ve had the brisket at Johnny’s before, but it’s been a while. At Johnny’s you sit wherever you want and you are served by a waitress. If you want to take your order to go you can order at the counter. I ordered the sandwich and 1/2 and fries. It took about five minutes to get my order. The sandwich is served with their sauce on it, but they don’t put a lot on it. The sauce is pretty sweet and has a bit of a bite to it. The meat was very tender and flavorful. It is served on bread slices instead of a bun. This is the first place I’ve been to on my quest that’s served the sandwich that way. All of the others have served the meat on a bun. It was a very good sandwich and probably the best I’ve had so far. I had a hunch that would be the case since Johnny’s is a very popular place and well known to have good barbecue.
I wasn’t a fan of the fries. As you might be able to tell in the picture above, they are crispy and were a bit overdone for my taste.
My total bill for a sandwich and fries was $9.84. I think it’s a good bargain considering how big the sandwich is.
For the second time in a row the older couple sitting at the table next to me ordered ribs and the ribs looked very good. I’ll have to try them when I go back.
Best barbecue so far after five stops? The title would have to go to Johnny’s.
