The owner opened the door and personally greeted the people in the long line waiting for the restaurant to open. That “welcome to my home” hospitality set the tone for our visit. After greeting everyone, he went to serve his guests. This restaurant is clean and pleasantly decorated, but the food is absolutely the star of this show. Excellent bbq and awesome cheesy potatoes. He was so delighted that we were visiting from out of town and that it was our first visit, that he generously offered us sample tastes of other items. Everything we ordered - Cup of Heaven and a Pork sandwich with cheesy potatoes - and everything we sampled was very good. It was a great lunch find and we would certainly recommend it. Please be sure to check the hours that the restaurant is open and then visit. You will be warmly welcomed.

Lonnie Q’s is a hidden gem in the Topeka/Shawnee County area. Just north of the dam at Lake Shawnee, Topeka, Kansas. Amazing BBQ, and trust me, choose the cheesy potatoes. The decor is professionally locally sourced. Heavy influenced from the close relationships of the Owner (Lon Weaver)with the 70s music legends. Especially the local band, KANSAS. Oh, and arrive EARLY. Food sells out QUICK!

The best BBQ in town!! Lonnie’s cup of heaven, is exactly what the name implies. Yummm! I always skip the beans (the only thing I’m not crazy about) and get a double order of cheesy potatoes (the best I’ve ever had!!) Plenty for 2 meals! Did I mention the service? Lonnie, the owner unlocks the doors and greets the customers standing in line. Talk about good, personal service! The service is as impressive as food!

Lonnie makes a mean cup of heaven! Enough food for two meals, but you’ll eat it all because you won’t be able to stop. :) When it’s gone, it’s gone, so get there early!

This the best Barbeque place in this area! They are always busy on the days they are open! They usually have lines waiting! They have wonderful smoked meats and potato casserole and baked beans and cold slaw! You can get orders to go! They give you lots of food! It is the BEST!!!
