Took my staff there for lunch. We had ribs, pulled pork, brisket, sausage, coleslaw & baked beans. Extremely reasonably priced! It’s off the beaten path, almost outside of town. Well worth the trip!

Excellent Q in a city thriving with plenty of BBQ choices. The wraps add an interesting twist to the standard BBQ fare. The fries are also awesome!

Johnnys to me is the best bbq in Olathe. I love eating at Johnnys. I love their bbq and i love their sauce. I do feel sometimes their ribs cn be somewhat fatty but they are tasty. They have the best bbq sandwiches and fries.

We have eaten here several times and was never disappointed. Good food, good selection. The restaurant could use some updating. Lots of parking in back

Friendly, excellent service, consistently excellent BBQ. Well smoked meats and a varied menu. Big fan of the pulled pork Sandwich and a Half, but ribs and other dishes are just as good!
