It’s 2 a.m., you’re heading home from a night out, and it hits. You’re hungry as all get out, but where do you go? Most of the city has shut down at this point, but there are still a few places out there that serve up delicious food all through the night. We reached out on Facebook to get your input and threw in a few of our own favorites. Here’s a guide to some of Wichita’s best late night grub.
This place is a west side Mexican staple that serves up a massive variety of burritos. Rene’s packs their burritos full of deliciousness which is a nice change compared to some places which serve up more tortilla than filling. A popular menu item (and my personal favorite there as well) is the Colorado Burrito, a grilled tortilla filled with potatoes, steak, cheese and salsa.
