My daughter and I wanted to eat lunch somewhere near downtown Wichita that was different and found this revived soda shop. There are small tables and booths to dine at, as well as stools along the counter. I ordered the special of the day- chicken enchiladas and they were tasty, served along with pinto beans and tortilla chips. My daughter... More

I couldn't of asked for anything more for lunch on my way from Texas to Denver. I decided to give my arteries a break for the day and not deal with my normal ready/barbecue lunch and opted for the smoked turkey breast sandwich. The lettuce was crisp and fresh as where the tomatoes and the turkey was excellent and there... More

Went here for an easy dinner before heading to the Orpheum for a show. It's a nice break from the chain scene. The tomato soup was the best I've ever had.

The Old Mill is a landmark restaurant in Wichita that should not be missed. Mostly open for lunch six days a week. The old-timey atmosphere and friendly service make this a fun experience. You may have to wait in line a little, but it is always worth it. My wife always has the chicken salad sandwich and I always have... More

Saw that this place was 1 of the 50 best Milkshakes in the country, so we had to try it out. All the members of our party said 5 stars☆☆☆☆☆! They had strawberry shake, hot fudge coffee, & hot fudge caramel.

This little place is phenomenal. The food was great. Service was perfect. Everyone was friendly and efficient. Sandwiches ( the meat was top quality). The steak soup was superb. Shakes to die for. Don't forget the carrot cake, super tasty. Potato salad was homemade and very good. The place is small and very reasonably priced. We can't wait to return... More

We were just passing through Wichita and saw this place on TripAdvisor. So glad we stopped here! It was easy to find and had lots of parking. We loved the old style diner, the wooden ice-box as you walk in the door is beautiful! I enjoyed looking at the pictures on the wall showing the restaurant in years past. I... More

The Old Mill Tasty Shop is a Wichita favorite. They are known for their milk shakes, sodas, and green chili. They also make a great chicken salad sandwich with cashews. This place has very limited seating and can get crowded at lunch. It is recommended to arrive early or arrive with patience.
