The Peanut Olathe - Olathe, Kansas

This is a first look at the anxiously awaited, The Peanut, in Olathe, Kansas. 

The Peanut Olathe, is the 8th location for this Kansas City bar & grill chain, which started as a speakeasy in Kansas City, Missouri in 1933. The Peanut has a fairly short menu with burgers, seven salads, chili, burgers, a variety of sandwiches and Buffalo chicken wings.

The Peanut specializes in bacon, lettuce & tomato sandwiches and wings. The BLTs are available in single & triple, plus extras such as more bacon, fried egg and sliced avocado.

The Buffalo wings are huge and are what The Peanut is best known for. They have a minimum 20 minute cook time and customers may call ahead to start the wings cooking when they leave home. The whole wings are a bit tough, but have a unique black peppery flavor that makes it all worth while. The Peanut's chicken wings are served with a special blue cheese sauce made in the restaurant.

We visited The Peanut on January 8, 2019, the day after this location opened. There was no sign that this was the second day the restaurant was open. Food service and speed were identical to our experience at other Peanut locations. No opening jitters were apparent.

We will be revisiting this location in the next few weeks, to try some of our other favorites, like the chili dogs, onion rings and the standout chicken sandwich with marinated chicken breast, Swiss & cream cheeses, red onion and grilled red bell peppers on a hamburger bun.
