Lenexa – Jerry’s Bait Shop
Jerry’s Bait Shop is not the kind of place you would go if you actually wanted fish bait. It is the kind of place you would go if you wanted a cold drink and some tasty pork……in the form of a pizza, that is!
Jerry’s Bait Shop has the feel of local small town tavern in the heart of metropolitan Lenexa, Kansas. Jerry’s is located on Santa Fe Drive in a building dating back to the 1870’s. You can almost sense the wagon trains that would pass by out front…..or you can enjoy the sight and sound of the actual trains which run just across the street. With a historical aspect in mind, Jerry’s Bait Shop is highly reminiscent of Sharkey’s Pub and Grub in Fort Scott, Kansas, with similar décor, atmosphere, drinks, and menu.
At Jerry’s Bait Shop, you can get a pizza any way you want it. I want mine with all the meats! I like to order The Lunker, a pizza that includes pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon and regular bacon. If you would prefer, they offer a pulled pork pizza, as well.
If you find yourself in the Kansas City longing for someplace out of the traditional big city hubbub, tell your friends you need some bait, and head out to Jerry’s Bait Shop in Lenexa. Be sure to check the place out on weekends, when they feature live music!
Until next time,
