Meet Atomic Cowboy: Overland Park’s Cool New Eatery

Hey Overland Park folks! Get set for a fab food adventure at Atomic Cowboy, now open at 7101 W. 80th St. This 3-in-1 joint’s got a breakfast spot, pizza place, and bar, so it’s perfect for everyone, even our neighbors in Leawood and Kansas City.

Triple Treat for Food Fans

From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., you can chow down on tasty biscuits and other breakfast stuff from Denver Biscuit Co., one of Atomic Cowboy’s three parts. After 11 a.m., Fat Sully’s Pizza takes over, dishing out yummy pizza slices. If you’re more into chilling, the bar’s got cocktails and sports on TV all day, plus arcade games and a pool table for extra fun. Founder Drew Shader wants Overland Park families to feel welcome, so bring the kids for an early dinner with pizza and burgers.

Spreading Out from Westport

After a big hit with its Kansas City spot in Westport at 4144 Pennsylvania Ave. in 2020, Atomic Cowboy’s bringing its cool concept to downtown Overland Park. Shader says the area’s vibe is just right for the restaurant.

One cool thing about the Overland Park spot is the walk-up “slice window” where you can order and eat huge build-your-own pizza slices outside. But maybe wait till Kansas City’s freezing temps go away.

Top Menu Picks and Outdoor Seats

For breakfast, folks love the biscuits and gravy, and the “Lola” – a fried chicken and bacon biscuit sandwich with maple syrup. The outdoor patio has room for lots of people, but maybe not the best choice during windchill warnings.

Atomic Cowboy’s Story

When Atomic Cowboy started in Denver 20 years ago, it was just a bar. Four years later, Shader added Fat Sully’s, a pizza place. His other idea, the “biscuit bus,” ended up in the bar too. This mix of Shader’s ideas turned into the Atomic Cowboy we know now.

With nine spots, including seven in Colorado, Atomic Cowboy keeps growing its one-of-a-kind food experience. The Overland Park spot is open from 8 a.m. to midnight for now, but Shader’s thinking about longer hours later on.
