Noodles to open on North Rock Road by mid-December

WICHITA — By the end of the year, the first Wichita Noodles will open at 3300 N. Rock Road across from Subway.

As Have You Heard? reported this spring, the Colorado-based chain has been scouting the city for sites.

"Wichita makes a lot of sense for us," spokeswoman Jill Preston said at the time.

The chain recently opened in Lawrence and doubled its presence in the Kansas City area.

The restaurant sells all kinds of noodle dishes including the more exotic, such as Pad Thai, to the more everyday dishes, such as mac and cheese.

Small noodle bowls are $4.25. Regular-size bowls are $5.25. Protein costs $2.25 more, and there are 14 fresh vegetables from which to choose.

There also are soups and salads.

The chain, which has about 240 restaurants in 18 states, is rapidly expanding.

Look for the first Wichita Noodles to open in mid-December with more to possibly follow.
