Two restaurant closings
Also, a short-lived Wichita Mexican restaurant has closed. The phone is disconnected and there’s a “for rent” sign in the window of El Maya, the Mexican restaurant that opened a year ago in the former Dyne Quik building at 1202 N. Broadway. The building is one of Wichita’s remaining Valentine diners.
Uncle Joe’s opens in old Talliano’s space
Talliano’s is gone, but a new pizza buffet has taken its place. Uncle Joe’s Pizzeria just opened in the spot at 8404 W. 13th that previously housed Talliano’s. Uncle Joe’s, owned by Joe Arensdorf, has a buffet that has the white sauce Talliano’s fans loved. But it also offers a choice of thin or thick crust, and patrons can order other items, too, such as wings, stromboli and pepperoni rolls.
