Dish has an interesting (if limited) menu. Most in our group had the chicken salad with tarragon and tomato bisque soup. Both were delicious and portions were generous. Sandwiches and other menu items are somewhat atypical. I don't consider this a disadvantage, but Dish may not be the best option for diners who prefer many options and more conventional choices....

Visited here with friends from out of state and we were all impressed! The Dish is a tiny little restaurant with antiques tablecloths and dishes (read "not matching"). Everything is obviously homemade and is basically sandwiches, soup and salads. We all had something different and it was all delicious! The Dish is only open for lunch and the menu changes... More

First of all the menu posted with this restaurant is not their menu they are puzzled as to how it got attached to it as they did not post it. Their menu is created every week and is different each week. The food is very inventive very well prepared and delicious. For example my lunch today was Piggy and Figgy... More

Best BLT I've ever had. I've had several items on the menu and have never been disappointed. No trip to Abilene is complete without having lunch at the Dish.

We found this spot on Trip Advisor while driving across Kansas and planning to stop at the Eisenhower Museum. The menu was varied with fresh sandwiches that were delicious. The menu changes weekly but I had a bagel sandwich with Mesquite turkey breast, Blackberry preserves, Gouda cheese, almonds and bacon! A great combo. My husband enjoyed his Hawaiian tortilla wrap...

The Dish is an amazing restaurant. Get the Tuna and egg melt. I came with my older brothers. We all loved the food. It's great for adults and younger people like myself.

I cannot say enough good things about DISH! We would never have found this place without Tripadvisor, and I am sooooo glad we did. Best lunch in a long time. The food is so creative and unexpected. What an incredibly talented chef. And the unique decor and art just amkes this spot even better. Definitely worth the short drive off... More

I have traveled the US and a good share of the planet but this place remains my favorite lunch spot anywhere. The menu changes weekly and never fails to surprise me with new creations that are insanely delicious.

The Dish offers a different menu every week of creative and wonderfully flavorful dishes made with fresh ingredients! Ann has a special talent for crafting unique flavor combinations that make your tastebuds dance! Some dishes can be a bit on the hot spicy side, so ask if you don't care for that. A cup of soup or a salad comes... More

The menu posted was not all available today, but did the best we could with the one page sheet. After ordering, it was told what one ordered wasn't available, but other option on diet was only available in full order size. Got soup from original order also. It, and my husbands, was so hot from pepper we couldn't eat either.... More
