Eating at the Dish is a cross between "going to grandma's" and dining in Kansas City. Such good, wholesome food that is unique. The menu changes according to what is 'in season', but it never disappoints. Love it !! Patty C.

I have dined at this restaurant several times, and have never been disappointed!! They change their menu each week so you never know what to expect. A sandwich with the daily soup or salad for $7.75 is just a deal!!! They use great sauces, aiolis, and grains that are off the beaten path, at least in my kitchen! But if... More

The food was spectacular! We loved everything we ordered. The vegetarian sloppy joes we're excellent as well as the quinoa salad. We can't wait to go back! The service was so friendly! They made us feel so welcome! The overall experience was outstanding!!

I've eaten at the Dish several times already this spring. Each wee there is a new menu and it never ceases to amaze me how the chef does it! She loves to create and execute her creations. And to be working with her sister! How fun is that! Open faced pizzas are a little weird, but their soups and salads... More

Ate here twice during a week stay in Abilene. Menu changes weekly - no credit cards. First lunch was fabulous - best meal of the week - open faced veggie sandwich with a fabulous quinoa salad. Second time not quite as good - balsamic glazed brussel sprouts on flatbread - great idea but too cheesy and saucy. Friendly service. Nice... More

This was our THIRD attempt to eat here. Once they were full (limited tables and only open for lunch from 11:00-2:00), second time - our group was planning to meet there only to find the place closed. Granted...the food was good...far from typical routine fast food fare; BUT, unless you remember to check their website they seem to have different... More

Charming ambience, friendly folks and, most importantly, the most unique sandwiches and soups anywhere. This place is a destination stop. Delicious eats in generous portions and two lovely sisters make it all happen with love. It' a 20 mile trip to enjoy this establishment at lunch time and I make that trip at leasy twice a week.

This is a great example of how Tripadvisor can enhance a travel experience. While making a quick stop in Abiline to tour the Eisenhower Presidential Museum/Library, we checked in for tips on places to have lunch. That led us to Dish which is located on a quiet street in the old downtown area of Abiline. Its exterior is so quiet... More

Dish is a place that you would not go to, if you were not from Abilene. It is in a former store front, in old downtown Abilene, and serves the best lunches for miles around. The menu changes every Monday (Soups, salads and sandwiches) and all seem worth trying. I was told their regulars, of which I am sure there... More
