Jon Russell's Kansas City Barbeque - Overland Park, Kansas

This is an archive page. On February 23, 2019 the following was posted on the door at Jon Russell's Kansas City Barbeque:

"After years of serving our Overland Park & Olathe Community we have Closed our doors. We want to thank all of you for your support and friendships that we have made. We will miss you all deeply and thank you again for years of continued support."

Jon Russell's Kansas City Barbeque in Overland Park, Kansas has come a long way since it first opened in 2012. The service has improved, they have added two other locations, and doubled in size, tripling the size of the dinning room. They have also become much more polished. For example, they now have several of the BBQ sauce flavors available for sampling, rather than customers having to ask about them. The fries are improved and the pork ribs, in particular, are now more flavorful and tender.

Among the other meats, the burnt ends and brisket both have a nice smoky flavor. Some people may think the brisket is a little too fatty, but I found it to be just right. The sausage appears to be house made. It has a little less flavor from the smoking and is the only meat which I felt needed some of the sweet, fruity barbeque sauce. The sauces are Honey & Spice, Pineapple Pablano, Cherry Chipotle, Raspberry Jalapeno, Blueberry Habanero and Smokin' Ghost.

The best sides are the French fries and onion rings, though the rings might benefit from just a little more frying. The chips have good texture and are great for dipping or with a spread, but could use some seasoning for eating by themselves. The cheesy corn is the only side which has been disappointing, with the cheese sauce reminding me of some canned queso sauce.

Jon Russell's popular chicken wings used to be only available as a Wednesday special, but are now available every day. The wings are spicy from a dry rub and slightly crispy on the outside. I recommend them.

Jon Russell's newer locations are at 13145 State Line Road in Kansas City, Missouri; and a take out only, limited menu inside the Prairie Market Convenience Store at 9350 Renner Road in Lenexa, Kansas.
