Celebrity's Sidewalk Cafe in Olathe, Kansas was opened in 2002 by a former Backyard Burger franchise holder. Celebrity's provides good value food, quickly. Most small sandwiches run $4.89 and you can add fries and a small drink for $3. The meals are all made to order, usually in less than 5 minutes.
My favorite item at Celebrity's Sidewalk Cafe is the A-1 Cheese Steak (sirloin steak with cheese, grilled onions & A-1 steak sauce, on a toasted Italian roll).
The burgers are less impressive. The hamburgers are cooked to order, but not hand formed. They are not juicy and the cheese isn't given time to melt into the meat. Nothing special is done with the bun. The French fries are lightly battered shoestrings.
You pay for your meal when you place your order at the counter. Along with your receipt, you will be given a celebrity name. Perhaps Burt Reynolds or Madonna. When your food is ready, they will page, "Burt Reynolds your order is ready" At first I thought that was hokey, but the names are a lot easier to remember than numbers.
Celebrity's is kid friendly and offers hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese and crust-less peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for only $3.39 with French fries and a drink. A cheeseburger is 20 cents more.
Celebrity's Sidewalk Cafe is only 2 blocks east of I-35 at the southwest corner of Black Bob & 119th Street. In the Target Shopping Center next to Goodyear. Celebrity's Sidewalk Cafe often offers coupons on their website. The most recent one was 1/2 off the cost of a sandwich with a regular price drink.
