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.

We were waited on and greeted by a woman who has been with them for 32 years!!!! The history was amazing! The food and atmosphere was wonderful! we arrived just... More

Visited here for ice cream as this restaurant was mentioned on a social media top 25 list and we were traveling through the area. Decided to eat lunch - full breakfast and dinner menus with many items to choose from, including many items to cater to our mixed table of meat and vegetarian foodies, as well as a gluten free...

Historical soda shop. Looks fairly original to what it was back in the 1920's. Down to the old oak freezer by the front door. If you want great ice cream Sunday or something from the soda fountain it is worth your time. We went just to have ice cream but the sandwiches also looked amazing. Would go back here again!...

This is a casual, original old-fashioned soda fountain, complete with soda jerks. It has been privately owned and operated by a local family for many years. Find it in the heart of downtown/Old Town. I have never had a bad meal here. The sandwiches are consistently great and made fresh to order. (Daily blue plate specials, served on a real... More
