Minsky's Pizza

Reviewed By Motion22 - Kansas City, Missouri

Have been going to Minsky's since they opened way back in the 1970' or 1980's. It is all in the crust- nice and thick and buttery. Many varieties and many locations about town and all are good. Not a lot of fancy decor; just excellent pizza. Love the old hamburger; but they have kept up with the times and serve veggies, fancy exotic toppings etc. Sit down or carry out. Have eaten pizza in Chicago, New York, Jersey, and even Pisa, Italy and still say
Minsky 's is the best.

Kmacho's Mexican Restaurant and Cantina

Reviewed By zdmtravel - Olathe, Kansas

At first i was quite overwhelmed with the menu as there is traditional Mexican fare, then separated by a whole lot of other selections by Seafood, Chicken, etc. There were strictly vegetarian items and alot of other choices besides the typical Tex-Mex that is laden with piles of cheese! I had Pollo Kmachos that was grilled chicken w Lemon/wine sauce and mushrooms, artichokes, tomatoes, and peppers... came with a small bowl of beans and rice... not the overfried Spanish type, just white with cilantro and onions. He had a huge platter of chimichanga, cheese taquito and taco that also came with a pile of refried beans and rice. The 20 oz margaritas did not skimp on flavor nor liquor.... ladened with plenty of tequila! We will venture back... with a cab driver to take us home!

Good variety of food, delicious, consistent service. Love the quiche, breakfast potatoes and biscuits. Friendly staff who take time to get to know you. Most of the time you can get in, but on Saturday morning it can be quite crowded.

Johnny's BBQ Olathe

Reviewed By karenvoyager - Olathe, Kansas

I would like people to give this place a try, it does not have the glorified big business
ranking systems behind it , it just has very good food. We decided five years ago to cater our sons wedding using Johnny's (he wanted to ship in BBQ from Austin TX Salt Lick). People from Johnny's were excellent. Reception people went through the line at least 3 times and all out of town guests came by the next day looking for more.

Stopped for dinner one night while in town for business. Definitely up to standards with most Texas Roadhouses I've been to all over the country. Friendly and quick service from the servers and bartenders, hot fresh food, and ice cold beer. Would definitely return again!

My family has visited this First Watch restaurant several times. We like the variety of choices, although I order the Traditional 8 out of 10 times. Clean, good service, pleasant ambience, reasonable prices. An app is available that enables you to put your name on the wait list before you get there. We use it all the time.

I have eaten at Mi Ranchito multiple times and never been disappointed. Their chips and salsa are fresh and delicious. The jalapeno poppers are to die for! I love the salad because it has fresh greens and the chicken is delicious. The enchiladas have authentic enchilada sauce. The tacos are stuffed and very good.

Johnny's Italian Steakhouse - Olathe

First and foremost, Johnny’s is a steakhouse complimented with a rich Italian background featuring traditional and innovative items and a superior wine list. The look is metropolitan with the feel of the supper clubs of yesteryear. The sophisticated design of the restaurant is welcoming and warm; the illuminated lighting creates an air of mystique and privacy. The classic sounds of Sinatra, Dean and Sammy Davis, Jr. as well as contemporary crooners like Michael Buble and Harry Connick Jr. surround the restaurant and infuse an aura and rhythm all of it’s own. A glowing neon Blue Bar™ invites you for cocktails served on the custom granite bar or to relax on soft seating in the lounge; enjoy classic martinis, specialty cocktails and a selection from our extensive wine list. Johnny’s offers lunch, dinner, and breakfast in hotel adjournment settings. Heavy velvet draperies not only add to the aura but create private dining areas within the restaurant. With new-fashioned luxuries and old-fashioned service and hospitality, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse brings the Rat pack era to the 21st Century.

Not that that’s a bad thing. I️ just like to go where I️ can get something that’s not mass produced for lunch or dinner. The food is ok and the service was good.
