“Good local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

Nice bar and grill. The food is very good. Monday are half price burger day. You have to buy a drink. Fries are included. If they offer a salad instead of fries, there's a $1.00 up charge that they don't tell you about until you check out.

“Don't pass this bar and grill as just a burger joint!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2011

Austin's Bar & Grill
Mr. Mike Thayer, Owner
2103 East 151st
Olathe, KS 66062

Dear Fabulous Austin’s Team,

May I begin by saying, I am truly sorry! With all the letters I have written to the new and fine dining establishments in and around the Kansas City area, it has taken me 18 years to stop.. and say a formal thank you! My hats off to all the great folks at Austin’s!

Hundreds of times, Austin’s has faithfully been our favorite place for wonderful food and plenty of great “Cheers!” Offering much more than the average bar & grill, good booze and great food is always Austin’s bill of fare. Besides constantly creating new menu ideas, the owners at this bar, Mike Thayer and company, puts up with no nonsense! Now with Rex joining Natalie, the two bartenders extraordinaire, the wine list has greatly improved! (Still hoping to see the fabulous Paso Robles, Estansia Cab makes the list.)

We hardly ever miss Monday and Thursday night specials. With Monday’s Burger Madness, even adding a bottle of wine and a couple of great drinks, makes the ½ priced, best burgers in town, a fun and inexpensive evening out. Thursday is my night! The ½ priced 12 once Sirloin, is never disappointing! Since my wife is not really a steak lover, a generous cut of Alaskan King Salmon is always her favorite. A great salad with homemade dressing, along with the steaming hot, loaded bake potato, and of course, a good bottle of vino, well, Thursday’s just can’t get much better than this!

Our favorite waitperson is the pleasant, outgoing, and most professional Amy Catalina! With Rex and Natalie’s generous pours, Amy has our drinks on the table in less than a minute! But no worry if she is not on duty. Mike and Brandon have superbly trained all the wait staff, and fabulous service with a pleasant smile, is always our experience.

As we linger through the evening, one of the managers always comes by to say howdy and see how we are doing. And another pleasant surprise…. not being bombarded with loud, heavy metal, bucket beaten’ guitar bustin’ acid rock music! For us old folks, just an additional plus at Austin’s!

Please be assured, for years we have done our part to tell others about your wonderful restaurant and the fine, fun crew who graciously serve at Austin’s!

Very Pleased “Cheers” Customers,


Woody and Cheri Woodward
