History of Cascone's

John, LeRoy, and Sam Cascone started in the restaurant business over 40 years ago with a small diner on Locust trafficway near downtown Kansas City, MO. In those early days, the Cascone brothers were well known for their Italian Breaded Steak Sandwich, and we think the first in the area to develop the Italian hardroll on which the sandwich was served.
In 1954, John and LeRoy Cascone opened a full service restaurant at 3733 N . Oak in Kansas City North, Mo. Table service, a full dinner menu and the emergence of Cascone's famous lasagna occurred on North Oak. Since that time, lasagna has been the single most favorite entree at Cascone's; over 2 million orders served and still one of our trademark dinners.
With John's death in 1961 and LeRoy's death in 1963, Jennie Cascone, John's wife, owned and operated Cascone's Restaurant with the help of her children. After Jennie's death in 2003, her sons and daughter continues to monitor the success of the business. Cascone's owners/operators today include George Cascone, Frank Cascone, his wife Vita Ann, son Victor, and daughter Georgia; Jim Cascone and his wife Sara, and Lucille Hotchkiss. Larry Cascone's wife Jeanne, sons John and Tom operate Tommy's Bar & Grill in Gladstone, MO.
Our restaurant in Overland Park is named for our father, John Cascone, and our restaurant in Gladstone, Tommy's, is named for a close uncle.
