Great Burger!

Very cool place. I orderd a burger that I'm unable to find online now. But it was made up of trimmings from a local butcher shop and it was spot on. One of the best burgers I've ever had. Fries were good and great selection of beer. Will definitely go back when I make another trip to Wichita.

The Dos Tacos from The Anchor are outstanding. Very fresh and crisp, and you get chips and salsa with it. Very reasonably priced. We call ahead and get it to go! Always great service and great food.

The Anchor has some great burgers and HUGH selection of beers (Tap or bottle). If you happen to go when there is a beer fest going on the selection just gets bigger!

Food was better than I expected. I had the chicken strips with fries. The fries were great. Wife had the club. That club is the biggest I have seen. I ended up eating half of it. The only thing that could have made it better was some Italian dressing. Great place to eat befor or after drinking.

Fabulous bar. Great beer selection, and good service. We had a great time. I wish we had had an opportunity to eat there as well. We felt like we were in our element. The Auntie Mae's of Wichita...!

Folks reading this would do well to take note of the repeatedly horrible service that this place seems to dish out. Unless The Anchor's owner Schane Gross changes her policy concerning substitutions for side items on her menu at this establishment, I WILL NOT EAT THERE AGAIN. I love that the Anchor is independently and locally owned, but as a... More

It must be their trademark, dunno. Massively incompetent service paired with pretty good beers and food. I don't get it.

The Salmon BLT sandwich here is incredibly tasty. The salmon is seasoned nicely and is moist and not dried out like others I have had. Swapping out the regular fries for sweet potato fries is a must! These are some of the better sweet potato fries I have had. Aside from the food, Anchor has a great selection of microbrews.... More

I had a grilled chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries, which were just fantastic. The sauce in the sandwich was really tasty yet not overwhelming. The fries were just out of this world. I had a huge mound of fries that I didn't think I could finish, but I was wrong. I cleaned the plate! Be prepared to be stuffed... More

Honestly, I am having a difficult time understanding why this restaurant is so low on the list. The only answer I can come up with is that locals lack imagination, and apparently taste buds. I went here yesterday with my husband. The establishment was clean, our waitress and the rest of the staff was super friendly. And the food... OMG.... More
