Lots of great places to eat in Wichita. All the barbecue places are good. We like the Cafe Mediterranean just about best of all the restaurants in Wichita. It has great food but is not expensive. It is on Kellog near the exit we use to get on the highway for home. We got good service there and had a nice relaxing meal after our feet were worn out from shopping.
Great Sunday Brunch buffet. I liked every thing I had there.
Wichita was incorporated in 1870 after the success of businessmen who came to hunt and trade with native populations. Due to its location it was popular with cattle drives headed north to the railroads leading east.
Wichita has a great number of things to see and do; there are 36 museums, more than 24 attractions, 20 live theatres, 35 art galleries and 32 golf courses.
