Great food!

I'm vegetarian so was delighted to find a place that had a good vegetarian meal - I had the veggie wrap and the tomato and watermelon salad - both delicious! - staff very friendly too - definitely stop in!

Several unusual choices for lunch. Great soup. Dining area was cold and uncomfortable. No gluten free options.

Somebody at the Eisenhower Center suggested we try the Dish for lunch and we did, mainly because it was nearby, but as it turns out it was the best meal we had in Kansas! A cozy dining room, with colorful artwork, very inviting. We would have come back for dinner, but they were not open that night. Bravo, Dish, wonderful... More

We've eaten here a number of times and every time the food is tasty and unexpected. The girls who run it (sisters I think) are friendly and funny. Wish we lived closer, it's where we stop every time we're on I-70 traveling across Kansas. Plenty of parking, reasonable prices, and of course GREAT FOOD!

If you haven't tried The Dish you're missing out. With a menu that changes weekly there is always something new and exciting to try. The food is delicious and the service is great!! I highly recommend The Dish!!

We were looking for a light lunch and something cold to drink. We arrived at 1:30 PM not realizing they close at 2 PM. Didn't matter....had excellent and prompt service and the food was perfect. Both guys said they'd come back for just the soup it was so tasty. Iced Tea was perfect and the owners answered our questions patiently... More

My wife and I were heading back to Kansas City and found this place. I'm so glad we did! The fish tacos were off the chain!!! We definitely plan on going back and would highly recommend going.

Great meal! Stopped by for lunch on a trip from KC to Denver. The food was quality and original. My kids, even the picky one, enjoyed their meals. Will be coming back on other trips.
