Thanks for stopping by! From the start every blog, expense to keep the site up has been a one man job. Readership has grown over the years which has increased the cost to maintain the site. Providing Wichita with a great free resource to highlight businesses and restaurants has been a lot of fun.

Aside from working my 8-5 job and raising a family, this has mostly been a full-time hobby that’s extremely time-consuming and costly but still a joy to do. If you would like to help support the site in anyway, your patronage would be greatly appreciated.

You want to eat out but at the same time hate that it seems like all the cheap options are only at national chains. Your intentions are to support local establishments but don’t know where to go.

Fortunately for you and your wallet, I’ve put together ten deals for $5 and under that will help you eat cheap and local at the same time.

There are plenty of daily and weekly specials available throughout Wichita but who wants to have to keep track of what day is what special and at what time? The following deals are available everyday the restaurants are open.


Fried Rice

Fried Rice – Daily Special

2419 S. Glendale
Wichita, KS 67210

The $4.50 meal deal includes a 16oz container of fried rice, two eggrolls, and one pop. Make sure to bring cash!

Kimlan Sandwiches – Every Bánh Mi!

1035 N. Broadway Ave
Wichita, KS 67214

Every single bánh mi sandwich on the menu is not only delicious but priced from $3.50 to $4.25.

Electric Pizzeria – Medium Cheese Pizza

240 S West St
Wichita, Kansas 67213

I introduced some family recently to Electric Pizzeria; nice little pizza there. And the medium cheese pizza is only $5.

Sport Burger – Burger & Fries

134 N Hillside St
Wichita, KS 67214

When it comes to burger price by the ounce, Sport Burger is one of the cheapest in town. You can get a cheeseburger and fries for just $3 and change. What makes it even better is the burgers there are in my top ten favorite around Wichita.


Tacos Fajitas

Tacos Fajita – Tacos

1004 S Meridian Ave
Wichita, KS 67213

Tacos are a dollar every single day. They are complimented by some of the best salsas in town too. I’d recommend you call your order in as well.


El Vaquero – Tacos

1320 E Central Ave
Wichita, Kansas 67214

Another option for dollar tacos available everyday the restaurant is open is El Vaquero. You have your option of Al Pastor, Chorizo, Carnitas, Barbacoa, Chicken.


Rene’s Mexican Fast Food – Burritos

677 N Eisenhower St
Wichita, KS 67212

There are technically two locations with a third one the way. The burritos here are the way to go especially after you’ve been drinking which seems to enhance the flavor.

A popular favorite among many people is the Colorado burrito which runs $4.95.


Berneal's Carryout LLC

Berneal’s Carryout – Cheeseburgers

2403 E 13th St N
Wichita, KS 67214

They call themselves the home of the 99-cent cheeseburgers. If you’re willing to make the drive to 13th and Grove, there’s a little hole-in-the-wall that serves cheeseburgers about the size of a slider for a penny short of a dollar.


Krispy's Fried Chicken & Seafood

Kripsy’s Fried Chicken & Seafood – Wings or Chicken

3009 S Hillside St
Wichita, KS 67216

Want to fill yourself up on some of the best fried chicken in town? You can get 3-pieces ranging from $3.49 – $4.99 or try their 5-piece wings for $4.99. You can’t go wrong with either choice.


M&M Bierocks – Bierock Meal

2065 E Central
Wichita, KS 67214

$5 gets you a regular bierock, chips, pickle and a medium drink. Enough to satisfy you for any lunch and help get you through the day.


Just missing the cut was the teriyaki chicken meal from Japan Express for $5.25. But I had to add that on there because it’s insanely delicious.

Enjoy the deals. Eat cheap. Eat local. Eat good.
