The ICT 100: Wichita’s Best Restaurants (2022 List)

The ICT 100: Wichita's Best Restaurants

It’s that time to start a new tradition and one that shines a light on Wichita’s Best Restaurants. Whether it’s hole in the walls tucked away in the most obscure part of town, long-time classics or new additions to our dining scene, I wanted to put together something that gave diners, restaurants owners and anybody who is in the industry a reason to celebrate.

Welcome to The ICT 100. It’s a project I’ve been working on with a collection of other food bloggers around town. The goal was to celebrate the culinary work that is in Wichita.

Creating The ICT 100: Wichita’s Best Restaurant List

At first, I was going to make the list based off my own experiences, as I’ve eaten at every restaurant at the time the list was put together. At the same time, I wanted to involve the input of many fellow food bloggers who support our local dining scene; many of whom I have met once or never before. After some thought, I chose the latter because I felt the need to make sure the list was inclusive of multiple opinions, and who doesn’t love a good local collaboration?

I pulled together a panel that included Just Try It, Significantly Spicy, Fert the Foodie, ICT Broke Girls, No Need For Silverware, Live Local ICT, Jen with the Coffee, JustBeingJulz, and Bottomless Pit ICT. Big thanks to MarkArts for hosting our meeting!


  • The panel was tasked with deciding 75% of the list. They were presented with a list of every restaurant in Wichita; chains and locally owned. Their job was to narrow that big list to 75 restaurants solely on food.
  • The remaining 25% was decided on by me. My reasoning for this was because I knew that most of the panel hadn’t been to every restaurant on the list, so I thought it was a good compromise to make sure every restaurant had a fair shot of making the list.
  • To be considered for The ICT 100, only Wichita restaurants with a brick & mortar location were taken into consideration. Food trucks and pop-ups were not included, along with any restaurant outside the Wichita city limits.

In no particular order…

Closing Notes:

  • Narrowing down the list to 100 was harder than I imagined, especially with the way it was put together. There were some restaurants I, personally, enjoyed but didn’t have enough room to make the cut.
  • The panel had some good back-and-forth discussions on which ones should be included. Of the 75 they included, there were a handful unanimous decisions, like Gabby’s Peruvian Carryout and Georges French Bistro.
  • One restaurant who was going to be on the list but recently closed was Lola’s Bistro.
  • For next year’s list, I’m weighing in whether to include a “Reader Vote” and give them some say in the matter and allot readers a certain percentage of restaurants they feel deserve to be on this list.
  • I’m confident this list will cause some debates, that’s pretty much the point of any list…. to get people talking. I only take blame for a quarter of these places. (insert smiling emoji)
  • Now that I have a baseline to work from, next year should be interesting with many more restaurants opening. This should only make it harder on which ones to include and which ones to remove.
