Wichita for 24 hours, where to eat?
I'll be in Wichita KS at the end of the month, for almost exactly 24 hours . I'm looking for recommendations for dinner and lunch for sure but if there's a don't miss for a weekday breakfast, I'll take that, too. I prefer locally-owned and I'm not scared off by dives. I'll do a chain if it's something really unusual for the midwest but usually like to support family-owned businesses. If you are recommending Mexican, my preference is Tex-Mex although I am partial to interior Mex when it comes to tacos. I like the little, two corn tortilla tacos, meat and onion and cilantro, with maybe some lime to squeeze and a great sauce. Love lengua, cabeza, tripas! I'm open to unusual foods and exotic cuisine. I'll have a car while I'm in town on business so I don't mind traveling. Hotel within 15 minutes of airport, just for point of reference. Hope there are some KS chowhounds who can give me the skinny!
Bomber Burger has great handmade burgers and fresh cut fries. It is a tiny dive. Ty's Diner is another old joint with the same and a larger menu.
The original Nuway cafe has been open since 1930 - everything is good, but be sure to try a loose meat burger and their own root beer.
Stroud's Restaurant is in a 1930s barn and serve great family style meals. They are best known for their pan fried chicken, but the smoked pork chops and fired catfish are also very good.
B & C Barbeque is only open for lunch but they have very good BBQ and sides on a buffet served in an old garage.
