This is the store I rarely visit in KC, not b/c its bad but just b/c there are other better stores. Its a large store, not much in the way of ambiance. Not as well let as the Martin City Lukas and not as big. Its a fine store and if you are near by you should stop by. But it falls out of the top tier KC stores.
The little sister to the KC Missouri Store, Lukas Liquor in Overland Park isn’t bad by any means. While the size of the store is a bit smaller, the selection is nearly as good, though missing some thing that you can get on the Missouri side. If you’re in the Overland Park area it’s worth checking out, otherwise take the extra 30 minutes to go to the other store.
HUGE store, truly warehouse like. Beer is in the back 1/4 of the store, and the have a tremendous amount of cooler doors. Selection is pretty massive, although I don’t tend to ever run into special releases or hard to find beers. Just a really wide selection of offerings and two enormous rows of bombers as well, which is nice. Staff is friendly and always good to help, as long as you go to them. Location is middle of nowhere though. Pick Six is pretty massive too, and all refrigerated, and then organized by beer type, which was a nice touch. Certainly not my go to store for atmosphere and releases (Gomer’s Lee Summit all the way), but worth the occassional trek to search the giant place and see what pops up.
Great store. Carries many beers that other liquor stores don’t. Prices are slightly better than Lukas Liquor KC. Carries a few beers that the Missouri store doesn’t (because of distribution from Colorado).
I’ll admit I put this into my GPS as "Lukas2" and the KC location as "Lukas1," but it really is equal to the KC Lukas store. They offer a bit of a different selection because of distributors, but still have a vast selection. I like this place because they offer some "no-name" bombers for cheap that end up being pretty tasty. They also offer some CA beers that the KC Lukas doesn’t carry such as Ballast Point. I like the single bottle Goose Island selection, but don’t like how they lack Bell’s. They have a nice mixer sixer selection that is very different from the KC location too. Dieu du Ciel is also available in more than just the Péché Mortel, which I love. Not bad prices, no real customer service, and relatively straightforward shopping. Overall, its my #3 KC area location behind Gomer’s Lees Summit and KC Lukas.
Stopped in there 3 times during my stay in Overland Park. Down the street from Barley’s Brewhaus. OMG, the store seems to go on and on. It is already pretty big. After you step in, all of the spirits are right there. Beer is to the left and all along the back wall. I looked to the right and it followed down to the next to stores as if the walls were torn down. It reminded me of the warehouse in the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Beer selection is great. Mixed 6pk in 2 or 3 of the doors on the back wall as well. I loved this place. The help is Average to weak. They don’t really care if they have something or don’t. Don’t really say anything really. Honestly, I can help myself.

Big box liquor store, one of the best selections in Kansas, though service is pretty much on your own. They do mix a 6 if you are looking to grab a few different locals. All KC area stores on the Kansas side need to deal with limited distribution.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
