Lonnie Q's BBQ

After 10 years running the BBQ spot at Topeka Harley Davidson, Lonnie Weaver set off on his own (armed with a hungry army of loyal BBQ fans) and opened a new restaurant in February 2011, in Deer Creek Valley, just south of I-70 (take the SE Deer Creek Trafficway exit on I-70 and go south before turning east of SE 21st St.) and north of Lake Shawnee (from SE 29th St. behind the Lake Shawnee dam, go north on SE Wittenberg Road to SE 21st St.).

Located in a brand new building near Deer Creek RV Park, Lonnie's offers exactly what you expect in a BBQ joint: ribs, brisket, pork and turkey as well as an array of outstanding side dishes including his popular cheesy taters. On Saturday mornings, Lonnie's serves biscuits and gravy.

And before you think that Lonnie is just the mastermind at the smoker, know that the music inspired murals inside the restaurant were all painted by Lonnie himself. The interior of Lonnie's is both comfortable and sophisticated with room for 75.
