“We’re really looking forward to having Tanners at Red Bridge. The concept falls right in line with the friendly, energetic and fun atmosphere we strive for at the center. Before reopening as Tanner’s, KC Hopps is putting a substantial amount of work into the space to expand their patio seating, as well as increasing the size of their bar and opening up the space to join the bar area with their new stage area, highlighting the live music and entertainment they are planning. We’re excited to see all changes and offer yet another fantastic, local dining option at Red Bridge Shopping Center.” Brandon Buckley, LANE4.

The history of Tanner’s starts back in the 1980s, in the town of Atchison, KS. Grandpa Tanner spent years quenching the
thirsts of his friends and neighbors in this small college town where he grew up. But he had a bigger vision.
He envisioned a bar and grill where the service is always friendly, the food is tasty, and the beer is ice cold. It would not just be
another bar and grill. It would be an approach to life – a place for good times with great friends and where you could find
Grandpa himself, behind the bar, serving and entertaining guests both day and night.
The first Tanner’s Bar & Grill opened in 1985, on 87th Street, in the heart of Lenexa. Grandpa Tanner and his friends proudly
built it from the ground up and, from the very beginning, Tanner’s was the place to be. People traveled from near and far to
enjoy good beers with even better people, relax in a friendly atmosphere, and watch the big games on the big screens (ok, back
then the screens weren’t big but it was the 80s!)
Word traveled fast about what a great place Tanner’s was to visit and it wasn’t long before people in other parts of the city
wanted the famous Chicken Lips, delicious Boogas, and Jumbo Wings. So Grandpa Tanner and his friends opened a new
location in Overland Park, and then another in Waldo, and then another, and another. And even though more locations were
added, he never lost sight of what Tanner’s was about. The dream of being “The Friendly Purveyors of Good Times, Fine Food
and The Pause That Refreshes” had become a reality. Grandpa Tanner had come to the big city and created something special.
