Austin's Bar & Grill in Olathe, Kansas is one of the few restaurants in Olathe serving a full menu until midnight and appetizers until 1AM. Austin's offers attractive daily specials, such as half price burgers all day on Monday, Tuesday evening all-you-can-eat spicy shrimp in the shell with baked potato & salad for $13.99, and a full Mexican menu on Sundays
I am a fan of Austin's hamburgers. My favorite is the El Fuego Burger which is smothered with Austin's hot sauce, sauce, melted pepper jack cheese and jalapenos. $8.59 with your choice of French fries, baked beans, potato salsa, coleslaw, cottage cheese, or potato chips. But the Burger of Burgers runs a close second - $9.89 with grilled onions & mushrooms. Monterrey Jack & American cheeses and topped with bacon.
Austin's has a small fixings bar with lettuce, pickles, onion, pickled jalapenos, mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, Austin's BBQ, and taco sauce.
My other favorite items are the Buffalo style chicken tenders and baked potato soup - loaded baked potato soup, made from scratch and topped with green onion, cheddar cheese and bacon. The lightly battered French fries are pretty good, but come covered in parmesan cheese unless you request otherwise.
Olathe bans smoking in bars and restaurants, but Austin's has some outside seating where customer's may smoke and still be out of the weather. They even have a couple of TVs out there.
Austin's Bar & Grill has a second location at 245 N Moonlight Road in Gardner, Kansas.
