We have enjoyed visiting the website of a local foodie who has visited and rated many of these restaurants. You can find information about his experiences here. It's pretty comprehensive and many of the reviews feature menus, photos and links to over 1,000 local eateries.
Wichita has so many great places to eat, we can only mention a few here on the guide. We'd love to tell you all about the absolutely yummy places we like to eat. We are definitely a restaurant city with a selection of eateries as diverse as our population!
This is the French Toast Trio at Doo-Dah Diner. My personal favorite is the Chicken and Waffle, but everything I've eaten here is tasty. This is the restaurant I always take out of town guests! Actor Harrison Ford always stops in here for a meal when he's in town for maintenance on his airplane. Breakfast and Lunch only. - Jeanette

We have a lot of dessert, coffee and ice cream spots if you're not looking for a meal.
Milkfloat is about seasonal flavors and baking fresh, a perfect cup of coffee or tea, a hand-mixed soda, and an old-fashioned milkshake. Another yummy place to have brunch, dessert, coffee and more! Funky decor and relaxed atmosphere, it's a great place to meet up with friends for casual conversation. - Jeanette
Want something familiar? We have a wide variety of regional and national chain restaurants.
Well known and several locations in the Wichita area.
Steve says the chicken nuggets and waffle fries are the best thing to order here. I enjoy the diet lemonade and mac & cheese! - Jeanette
Great food, even better iced tea! Too bad it won't be free tea day during conference!
Have you tried their salad bar? I know it's a sandwich place, but I love the salad bar! - Jeanette
Another Wichita original, it has expanded into a regional chain. Their mudslides are legendary as is their really wide variety of foods. There is a location in walking distance of campus.
