Overland Park – Jon Russell’s Barbeque

I was looking for a place to take my wife out dinner in the Kansas City area and found Jon Russell’s Barbeque. Jon Russell’s Barbeque is a newer restaurant located at the corner of 135th Street and Quivera in the Prairie Center Shopping Center in Overland Park. Kansas.  According to their website, they are “micro-smokehouse” which is a fancy way of saying that the restaurant is too small.  JonRussel's1You certainly can’t fit a large crowd here, but if there are only a few of you, it’s worth checking out. Owners Russell Muehlberger and Jon Niederbremer are award winning competition cooks with over twenty years of experience and an American Royal win! JohnRussell's3Pretty impressive credentials, but it shows in the quality of the food. The meat certainly rivals that of the best Kansas City Barbecue Society competitive barbecue teams. JohnRussell's4The ribs were fantastic and their side dishes were good also.  If you like great Kansas City Style Barbeque, check this place out!

Until next time,

    Sorry, this is a negative reply.. we have been to Jon Russell’s and found it to be lacking. It did not seem that the counter people knew what they were doing, or else were not interested in serving us. I have had better barbecue in small restaurants and Never felt ‘unwelcome’. Maybe when we were there they were just having a bad day. It is near where we work and shop and on the way home, had High Hopes when we stopped. Glad You had a good visit
