One of the underrated Mediterranean restaurants is Green Olive Family BBQ. They used to be located in west Wichita, but made the move to 4520 E. 47th St, just outside of Derby. After the move, the restaurant added BBQ to the menu and not too long ago added a buffet that is available only on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
For $14.99, I had to check it out.
4520 E 47th St. S, Wichita, KS 67210
Sunday – Thursday: 10am – 9pm
Friday – Saturday: 10am – 10pm
The buffet at Green Olive Family BBQ consists mostly of Mediterranean favorites. Their buffet had a self-serve setup. You grabbed your own plates and picked out whatever food you wanted.
The buffet had all the classic Mediterranean starters and sides like hummus, wings, falafel, vegetables, baba ghanoush, and tabbouleh. They then carried a mix of other Mediterranean and American dishes such as lasagna, kafta, some chicken items, meatloaf, potato soup, and more.
Here’s a look at the Green Olive Family BBQ’s buffet line for the particular day I dropped in.
As far as buffets goes, Green Olive Family BBQ had a nice little set up that offered an eclectic mix with lots of Mediterranean options. For $14.99, I definitely felt as though I got my money’s worth. They were short-handed during my visit, but that didn’t prevent me from enjoying my meal. After all, 99% of it is all self-service.
Overall, it’s certainly worth a trip if you’re ever out that way on a Friday or Sunday over lunch.
