Celebrity's Cheese Steaks, Burgers & More

About Us and Our Restaurants

Hi, I'm Jay Olson, owner of Celebrity's.  I got started in the restaurant business back in 1989 with the Back Yard Burger franchise system.  I was part of a locally owned/operated restaurant that opened 5 different locations here in Johnson county.  The franchises were sold in 2001, so I was looking to do something different than the restaurant industry, but  just felt compelled to do our own restaurant.
We opened the doors of Celebrity's Sidewalk Cafe in 2002, in Olathe.  Our whole idea was to serve great food at a reasonable price in a comfortable atmosphere and have fun while giving great customer service.  We also started our catering service that included delivery and on-site events.  We do many fund raising events with the area schools and churches, you may have seen our truck outside a school near you!
In October of 2013 we opened our second location in Gardner, KS.  We are on the corner of 4th and Main street.  We have the same great menu but added bottled beer and wine coolers and it is now our only location as of July 1st, 2014.
Celebrity's is known for having a delicious cheese steak sandwich (we call it the "Star of the Show") that we make fresh exactly how you want it.  Our charbroiled burgers and chicken sandwiches are the best with many different flavors to choose from (my favorite is the Cajun Chicken Sandwich!)  When making up the menu we wanted a variety to please everyone in your family and we believe we have that with our kids menu, freshly made salads and many cold sandwich options as well.
Please stop in and experience being treated like a Celebrity instead of just  a number.  Our motto here is:  If you like the food and service, tell everyone, if you don't please tell us"  We can only get better with the feedback from our guests. 
We look forward to many years serving the Gardner area.
