Pizza is better when shared with friends, like holiday celebrations, good news, and your debilitating fear of miniature horses. Share your bounty with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of homemade pizza and American fare at The Other Place in Olathe and Overland Park.
The Other Place’s chefs top scratch-made crusts with fresh ingredients and homemade sauce to create the menu's roster of 13 specialty pizzas. Wield a protractor to evenly split the House Special pizza’s load of nine toppings ($11.75–$23.50), including ham, salami, and mushroom, among family, friends, or a 10th-grade geometry class. Alternately, chefs slather a barbecue-chicken pizza ($11.50–$22.75) in tangy sauces and bacon bits, while drizzling the crust of the italian-sausage-strewn Sicilian ($11.50-$22.75) in garlic-basil oil. Patrons can also crunch down on the oven-kissed buns of submarine sandwiches ($7.95–$8.95), golden fried buffalo wings (10 for $7.25), or the grilled pork tenderloin sandwich ($8.25) as they cheer on sports events and competitive-hopscotch tourneys broadcast on more than 50 TVs.
The Other Place
At two locations, The Other Place’s staff fires up ovens to bake pizzas, italian subs, and sandwiches to a golden brown—the color of Pharaoh’s mask after he eats a chocolate bar. Atop hand-made pizza crusts made from a 40-year-old recipe, the kitchen team layers toppings such as italian sausage, salami, and sun-dried tomatoes, lubricated by tomato, alfredo, and barbecue sauce. Submarine-shaped bread holds italian meats, veggies, and toppings. In both eateries’ dining areas, more than 50 TVs stream sports games. The Other Place also often entertains guests with karaoke—America’s most underappreciated sport, and the one with the least funding in most school districts.
