Reader’s Grab Bag – 12/21/11

I’ve quietly been gathering thoughts from readers from tweets, Facebook posts, and blog comments on their opinions of places. Some good, some bad.

Sometimes I’m wary about reviews I see on Yelp or UrbanSpoon because they could easily be from people who own the establishment or work there.

The comments below are from hopefully trusted sources. No stockholders, restaurant owners, restaurant employees, etc.

I definitely enjoy blogging about my adventures but I equally love to hear people’s thoughts on places as well. I really do take them into consideration when choosing places to eat at. Just like the first Reader’s Grab Bag, I have left out their names. If you would ever like to share your thoughts, anonymously of course for a future grab bag, just shoot us an e-mail at or hit us up on any social media outlet.

Now time for your voices to be heard:

I have to disagree with you on that one (Wasabi). Kanai wins the best sushi in Wichita award. Wasabi is #2.

Charlie’s Pizza Taco
Since I no longer live in KS, I haven’t been to the new Charlie’s, but the one in Pratt… AMAZING. Miss those so much. Try it.

Fox and Hound
I’ve heard people disparage the Fox & Hound food, but I’ve never been disappointed by their food.

Thai Traditions
Thai Traditions is still the best.

Sweet Basil
Love Sweet Basil, and they have a Sunday brunch…

Chapada Chophouse & Churrascaria
I would not waste my time going to Chapada again. Some of the meat was undercooked when they served it to us, the flavor was lackluster, and the salad bar was subpar. If you want a good Brazilian Churrascaria steakhouse, go to Fogo.


It’s a little pricy and some of the negative yelp comments are true (servers and managers not knowing their product) but the meat and salad bar were good and they probably had a top 10 beer menu (for Wichita). Multiple Goose Island bottles (like Sophie, Fluer), Hoegarden, Tallgrass, etc. Plus they had old fashioned drinks like a Manhattan. For the Price, I would give it an average rating. If you exclude how much you spend, it would be a higher rating.

Wichita Brewing and Pizza Co.
We like Wichita Brewing Co.Pizza is good, beer is even better.


WBCo and Pizzaria has great food but I wasn’t crazy about the atmosphere. It just seems like its missing something.

Bocconcini was good but not great! I think it’s a good lunch place but that’s about it.

TJ’s Burger House
I’ve had a better hamburger at McDonald’s vs. TJ’s. Have never eaten at Ty’s. Would never intentionally go back to TJ’s.

It didn’t take long to solve the mystery of why I’m the only customer inside the East Wasabi! Their service sucks, the sushi is almost mediocre, and higher prices than Old Town location. I would rather eat Dillon’s sushi next to the salad bar.


That’s all for now. If you too would like to get your opinions in, just send them our way to – All opinions will be kept anonymously. Also if you have any questions, feel free to throw them my my way.

Happy Dining all.
