We normally drive to KC to get BBQ but now have found a new GEM in Topeka!

Lonnie is awesome too as an owner, he gave us great service, amazing smoked Turkey and cheesy potatoes.

A Must-Stop place for sure with a unique picnic tables atmosphere that is really cool!

Contrary to another report. Lonnies has not closed. Their phone works just fine.
They are still serving up great BBQ. Try the Ribs and Cheesy Potatoes. The Beans are also awesome. Like I have said before. Hours are limited to 11-2 weekdays and fridays 11-2 and 5-8

The smoked brisket and pulled pork at this place is to die for. And the cheesy potatoes are out of this world. It is conveniently located seconds from I-70 (take the Deer Creek / Carnahan exit and go south to 17th - it is right next to the RV park). Don't miss it!

Being from NC, we know our barbecue and will be putting Lonnie's at the top of our list of favorites! Super pulled pork, beef brisket, beans and slaw! Had run out of his reknowned potates, but we shall return to try Lonnie's special recipe for potatoes too! Lonnie is interested in visiting with his patrons so we had a lovely chat. We didn't leave empty handed either....Lonnie insisted that we take some ribs and smoked turkey with us free of charge to try:) We will plan our return trip on days he is open for lunch on our travels to and from NC to Denver, CO twice a year. On top of all the good eating, Lonnie's restuarant has a fabulous atmosphere decorated with his own artwork!

My husband and I pulled our RV into the Deer Creek Valley RV Park at 7:45. As we drove in I spotted BBQ. Not really wanting leftovers, I convinced my husband to go and get something to eat. As we walked up the clock hit 8 pm. Everyone was leaving but Lonnie welcomed us in and fed us his Q bowl. Offered us the baby back ribs he had left and stayed to talk with us. What a personable man. His staff were so happy and helpful. We visited while we ate and walked back in the rain. We are rerouting our return trip to visit with Lonnie again.
