Jefferson’s Restaurant (10540 S Ridgeview Road) — the wing, burger and oyster joint — will be opening a grand opening in Olathe on Friday, May 16.
The burger spot opened its first location in Jacksonville, Alabama, in 1991. A second eatery arrived in Lawrence at 743 Massachusetts Street nine years later. You may know it as the restaurant that features dollar bill artwork on the wall.
They’re not shy about frying things at Jefferson’s — you can get a fried oyster po’boy, chicken tenders, fried pickles, fried mushrooms and corn nuggets (hush puppies stuffed with creamed corn), fried mac and cheese bites, and beer-battered onion rings. The wings range from mild to turbo and it’s safe to say this will be the only burger joint in Olathe where you can get oysters on the half-shell or baked oysters topped with parmesan cheese, butter and pepper.[Image via Facebook: Jefferson’s]
