A favorite lunchtime locale when I'm in town!

I love to go the Old Mill Tasty Shop when I am in town for lunch! The muffalleta is fabulous! I love the atmosphere and the fact that it is owned locally by a sole proprietor, and not a franchise. It is fun to watch the soda fountain in action, complete with hand-dipped, freshly-made shakes... read more

I ordered the blue plate special which was Chicken Enchiladas with Green Chili Sauce and beans and my husband ordered a Reuben with potato salad and a root beer float. The enchilada was very tasty and a good portion but the potato salad was very skimpy and his float had the smallest dip (1 dip) of Ice Cream in it.... More

This place was packed with locals when we arrived with our large group. Kids and adults enjoyed the food and shakes. Prices were average.

Quick service and recommendations from our waitress led to my meal of their chicken salad with a side of green chili. The chicken salad was lovely and well balanced on fluffy white bread. I don't usually hold with cheese on chicken salad sandwiches but I gave it a whirl anyway. I wasn't upset by the cheese at all and liked... More

Just enter the front door and be taken back in time to o,d time ice freezers, real soda jerks and some of just the best food in downtown Wichita. Just a couple of blocks from the Intrust Bank Arena it makes a great stop in before a concert.

Old soda fountain actually used - charming. Menu offers variety to select from. The Green Chili soup was amazing - highly recommend it. Staff is always friendly & helpful. Nice, quiet atmosphere.

I really wish that I had read the reviews before eating here! Great, old style joint and pretty decent food. Cons: The credit/debit card machine was broken and they were manually writing out everyone's credit card number, information and phone number on a legal pad. No way in hell would I give that information! You have to walk through the... More

Stopped off here for some ice cream while in the area. It has a cool old time soda fountain ambiance. If looking for something different this is the spot.

A step back in time with the booths and marble soda fountain. A nice variety on on the menu from lunch specials to malts to Mexican. I come often and have always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere

Stopped in close to closing time and they were very kind and welcoming and said, "Come on in!" Great atmosphere, but bench seat we sat in needs more stuffing. Not comfortable. We came just for an after dinner malt and it was delicious. Restrooms oddly located to back of building, through the kitchen area.
