A new restaurant opened over the weekend near the northeast corner of Lincoln and Hydraulic in a little strip center. Morris St. Carry Out hopes to give the area of town another spot for people to eat where local dining options are fairly limited.
1712 E Morris St
Wichita, KS 67211
Tuesday – Friday: 5pm – 11pm
Saturday: 11am – 11pm
Closed on Sunday and Monday
The restaurant serves a little bit of everything. They have barbecue, sandwiches, hot links, burgers, sandwiches, catfish, and even smoked pork ribs and neckbones on Saturdays. They had a little grand opening event on Sunday.
I picked up a couple brisket hot links and catfish bites during my visit. They only had a limited amount of sides to choose from, so I chose their baked beans and fries.
To start, the baked beans were inhaled. They were sweet and sugary. I loved them. I typically don’t order beans but when they have brisket inside them, I’m all for it. Seriously, the beans were fantastic.
Next up was the hotlink with brisket which was equally good. The hotlink had a nice bit of heat to it that was tempered down by the sweet BBQ sauce and brisket. It was a beautiful marriage and I should know given that I’m a successful ordained minister with 13 ceremonies under my belt. Even better was the price of two brisket links with a side was $5.95. Not many places out there that can compete with that price.
The catfish bites on the other hand were slightly a disappointment. I’m not sure what seasoning was used on it, but they came off with a slight fishy aftertaste to it. The crinkle cut fries though was seasoned just right and fried to perfect. They weren’t overly crispy or soggy. I finished those off nearly as quick as the beans.
The gentleman who ran the restaurant stepped out from the kitchen and conversed with some of the customers. He was very appreciative of everyone who stopped by. I got a very good vibe from him.
On top of that the menu has many affordable options. There are a handful of meals that cost between $6 and $7 which is a good sweet spot.
For my first visit to Morris St. Carry Out, I was quite pleased with most of my meal and would definitely consider going back.
Here’s their menu:
