This looks like a franchise place but it isn't. This is a family owned place where the owners are always there, that should tell you something. The sandwiches are great and so is the service. All of the staff is super nice. This our family's favorite place to grab a sandwich.

A local Wichita dentist, (an old high school buddy) took me here for a "down home", very casual, opportunity to have some lunch. It was soon obvious, that Barn'rds was a family oriented, genuinely friendly and accommodating place to dine. Extremely informal atmosphere, yet tidy. I ordered a garden salad that was prepared "on the spot" (as opposed to "pre-prepared")... More

Read about this in a Road Food book my son got me a few years ago. Most of the places in the book have been good so tried this one and it was no exception. This is basically a family run Arby's. It tasted pretty much the same (and I love Arby's so that is actually a complement). The big... More

Barn'rds is a unique Wichita staple. The dining service is fast casual. The greatest part of this restaurant is the decor and the service. The decor is a flashback to the 70's and every time I have been there, the service has been top notch. Don't be afraid to splurge on a cookie either for dessert, for they are delicious.... More

Basic good food but seemed pricey for quantity compared to other fast food places. Might have been a staff off day but we felt almost in the way. Food quality hasn't been a problem. In all worth another visit.

Barn'rds is a staple in our Wichita dining. It is a slow fast food place, with drive up window and ordering at the counter. BUT it is the only restaurant of the family that runs it (everyone behind the counter looks alike). The soups sandwiches and salads are all home cooked and excellent quality. People pass up other fast food... More

When you eat here you are supporting and sustaining a local establishment that does a lot of good for the community and serves fantastic food. It is family owned and operated they also provide tuition reimbursement and scholarships for their student employees. I remember going to this place with my parents as a child on the weekends. I went back... More

This is an upscale version of Arby's. However, freshness of the bread and the must have Dijon/horseradish sauce are exceptional. Friendly faces greet you and serve you as you enjoy their generous portioned sandwiches. Not sure if they deliver. Can't believe I've lived here so long and just now discovering this jewel!

The roast beef is out of this world! Don't think this is beef like Arbys or Lion's choice. This is REAL beef! The portions are big enough to satisfy my 6'3" XL hubby and the prices satisfy frugal me. After the food, the things that I like best are the friendly faces, fast and efficient service and clean facility.

Locally owned and operated by people who obviously care about their product &want you to return. It's one of the best fast food restaurants in Wichita. Their roast beef is great! It's not the nasty shiny mother of Pearl beef places like Subway use. They put Arby's to shame. Everything has a fresh taste, and they provide amazingly consistent good... More
