About Wally

Owner/Operator, Chris Wollerman (aka Wally) is a longtime Lee’s Summit resident, growing up in the Lakewood community. He also practically grew up in the restaurant business. He started at age 15 bussing tables and eventually became a managing partner with a well-known Kansas City restaurant group.  After opening and managing several upscale-casual restaurants in Kansas City, then moving into corporate food-service, Chris decided to leave the industry and venture into real estate and construction.  But his desire to open his own restaurant never waned. When Chris and his wife Tammy had the opportunity to open a restaurant close to their home in Southwest Lee’s Summit, they knew this was the perfect opportunity for their family.  You will see one or both of them in the restaurant at any given time.   Chris and Tammy (and their kids Ava and Sam) are beyond thrilled to welcome you to Wally’s!

Our Drinks

When you approach the bar you'll see the Drafthouse on the wall...24 ICE COLD beers on tap.  And we mean COLD!  We took out the "middle man"...the beer doesn't have to run through the lines to the bar.  We took the taps directly to the source instead!  (Then we serve it in an ice-cold glass just to take it over the top.)  You'll have to come in to taste the difference for yourself!   A handful of those 24 beers are rotating, seasonal beers.  Want to try more than one?  Take Flight with a Beer Flight...a smaller serving of 4 draft beers of your choosing.  In addition, we have around 17 bottled beer offerings.   We also have many signature cocktails, Mimosa Carafes on Sundays (many flavors), 1/2 prices bottles of wine on Wednesdays and Happy Hour daily from 3-6 pm.  We also like to think we're the first to do a Moscow Mule Flight...we've searched everywhere and haven't seen anyone else do them.  They're a huge hit!  Choose 3 flavors!   

Our Food

We offer a variety of mouth-watering items.  You'll find a veggie flatbread, fish tacos, salmon sandwich, steak, salads, etc.  Our top seller is our 1/2 lb build-your-own burger on fresh baked brioche bun (from a local bakery).  It comes with cheese, lettuce tomato, onion and pickles.  Choose from many other a fried egg, avocado, garlic aioli or our bacon-onion jam.  Put that jam on just about anything and it's delicious!  Other favorites are the Cluckers,  The Wally's Way Patty Melt, Firecracker Chicken Sandwich, the Cowboy Nachos and the Not Your Mamas Mac 'N Cheese.  And you can't beat our kids menu with several fresh options for just $6 every day, including a drink.   And you should not miss our fabulous Sunday Brunch (10 to 2)!  Several DELICIOUS and unique items in addition to some of our most popular menu items.  Add Mimosa Carafes (Cinnamon-Pear anyone?) and our Brunch is not to be missed. 
Our menu isn't one of those huge menus you'll find at the chain restaurants.  We keep it smaller but with a nice variety...we make our food from scratch and we want to make sure what we do, we do well.  Be sure to check out the full menu!
