Several Wichita restaurants whose owners promised they’d open now have – and the latest one is Lina’s Mexican Restaurant.

Wichita’s second Lina’s opened on Thursday in the former Jacky Chan Sushi space at 4910 E. Central. The first one opened last summer in the space at 3570 N. Woodlawn most recently occupied by Walt’s Old Tyme Hamburgers and Smashburger.

Lina’s specializes in burritos, and in a recent poll I conducted, several readers said their breakfast burritos were top-notch. The restaurant, which has a drive-through, also serves lunch and dinner burritos, tortas, enchiladas, tacos and more. Both Lina’s are open 6 a.m. to midnight. For more information, call 316-440-7028.

Two other restaurants also have recently opened for business.

Wow Cheesesteaks started serving earlier this month in the former Yolo Grill space at 803 N. West St. It’s owned by Tyler Sanders and specializes in authentic Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, Italian hoagies, waffle fries and salads. Dining with Denise reader Mike Levand has already tried the restaurant and said Thursday on my Dining with Denise Facebook page that he loved the cheesesteak. “He got it right!” Levand wrote. “This place is well worth the visit. After eating here, you will begin to realize what all the fuss is about in Philadelphia.”

Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. For more information, call 316-491-1239 or visit the shop’s Facebook page.

Also, Kimchi just opened in the former Juni’s Cafe at 2929 N. Rock Road. The Korean restaurant, which has Juni’s head cook, serves beef bulgogi and other Korean specialties. Hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays. The restaurant is closed on Mondays. For more information, call 316-619-0909.
