C. Frogs BBQ and steak
C. Frogs - Prairie Village, Kansas

Archive Page Only - C. Frogs and the adjacent Standee movie theater quietly closed in January 2020. The closing was never officially acknoldged by the owners, but a new restaurant, Scratch Gourmet Express & Catering, is scheduled to open in this space in the spring of 2020.

C. Frogs in Prairie Village, Kansas is an upscale barbecue and steak restaurant which opened in the summer of 2016. It is the third restaurant at this location, attached to Standees movie theater. I am favorably impressed with this restaurant and we dine here severl times a year..

The menu is well written and has many dishes I wish to sample. On our first visit, we tried two appetizers, the bacon wrapped shrimp in Louisiana butter sauce with broiled bleu cheese, and the chicken fried oysters with red pepper jam on roasted creamed corn with smoked bacon. Both were very good and the bed of roasted cream corn made the fried oysters dish that much more of a treat. Since we had a lot of food, most of the corn went home with us and it re-heated well.

I was particularly wanting to try the BBQ, so on the first visit, we had chicken, burnt ends and sausage. The sliced sausage had no flavor from the smoking, but the chicken was good and the burnt ends were very good. So were the onion straws and French fries. This is a great place to go when wanting BBQ in a nice setting. C. Frogs serves Hillsdale Bank BBQ sauce.

Two desserts on the menu were particularly intriguing and we had the Baked Alaska which was served with flaming crème de menthe. The ice cream cake portion of the dessert was fine, but I really enjoyed the toasted marshmallow taste of the meringue topping. It is a large dessert, really too large for just two people.

Our second visit I had the least expensive steak on the lunch menu, the Frogs Angus Steak for $19. The 8 ounce grilled teres major steak topped with whiskey cream and garlic mashers and roasted corn poblano and sweet peppers. The steak was cooked medium rare, exactly as ordered and I enjoyed it, but I think I would have preferred it to have been topped with the house steak butter.

The servers have done a good job during three of our visits. They are attentive without being intrusive and are willing to offer opinions on dishes when we asked for advise. During the second visit, although we didn't think the food was particularly slow, the server apologized for our wait and offered us a free dessert. The sour cream apple walnut cobbler was excellent! 

During the most recent visit service had fallen off. We had to request things multiple times and anything requested (drinks, togo boxes, check, etc) took a long time. Hopefully that was an aberration and not a regular change.

I look forward to returning to C. Frogs and sampling more of the varied and interesting menu. This restaurant is a nice addition to Johnson County.
