Have you been to Chicken N Pickle yet? That place looks like a lot of fun, and I’ve been hearing great things about it.
It’s an indoor/outdoor entertainment venue and fast-casual restaurant that started in Kansas City. Wichita is only its second location, although they do have plans to open one in San Antonio.
Chicken N Pickle opened in Wichita just after the start of the new year, 2019. Since then, they’ve had numerous fun events. Many are free and the menu prices are reasonable.
The “Pickle” part of its name doesn’t come from the menu though – it is because of the large Pickleball Courts outside of the restaurant.
If you’re wondering what pickleball is, I don’t speak from experience, but it looks to be like a combination of tennis and ping pong. Players use a paddle to hit a wiffle ball over a net on a court that resembles a tennis court. I’d imagine it’s a lot more conducive to casual competition than actual tennis!
(Wichita Parks and Rec has pickleball too!)
