Places to eat
Overland Park is a nice place to raise a family, with great schools, parks and amenities, but lets be honest here; OP can be a bit bland and quite frankly a little boring. Unfortunately OP is chock full of fast food and chain eating establishments, so finding quality places to eat is a bit of a challenge. This list of places to eat seems to favor the ethnic places for some reason ? That being said, here is our list of our favorites:
Ricos Italian Restaurant
With one of the signature Italian Restaurants closing its doors last year, its hard to find good Italian food in the heart of OP. Thank God for Ricos on College Boulevard and Quivira. We are a little regional dining establishment. Our kids, pals as well as prolonged family members have actually commonly joined us in this venture.

El Salvadoreño Restaurant
We think this may be the only Salvadorian restaurant in the entire metro area? Regardless, its great food. We have traveled extensively in South America and this is authentic as anything you’d get if you had your feet on the ground in El Salvador. The portions are huge here and for some reason extremely filling. Maybe its all the rice ? There are not a lot of items on the menu that would qualify as “spicy” so if you’re looking for heat, this may not be your best choice. HOWEVER, just because its not spicy doesn’t mean its not flavorful. The flavors here are rich, subtle and nothing short of amazing. For some reason the Central American food always tastes better with a cold beer. We also love the tamarind they make. Its a very unique drink and hard to find in this suburb. They are located at 7926 Santa Fe Dr, right across the street from the Farmers Market. We highly suggest you check them out !
Snack Shack on Santa Fe

The quality of these burgers is impeccable. The interior is meant to mimic the malt shops of the 1950’s. By the way , their milkshakes taste like the malt shops of old.

Jack Stack BBQ
Yup, another BBQ place. It’s Kansas City, its what we do here 🙂 Jack Stack is not a gritty or seasoned as some of the traditional BBQ places here in Overland Park, but they deserve to be on the list. To stick out in the affordable Kansas City barbeque scene of the mid 1970’s, Jack and also his partner, Delores, started preparing premium meats over hickory timber and also developed one of the most comprehensive barbeque food selection in the nation. The food selection consisted of Accredited Angus Beef Steaks, fresh fish and shellfish, prize-winning Lamb Ribs, and also succulent side recipes like Hickory Pit Beans as well as Cheesy Corn Bake.Today, they remains in its 3rd generation of the household and also has actually developed right into the biggest, full-service timber culinary in the market.
