Join Our Yelp Waitlist!
If we currently have a wait, it’s easiest to join the list from the Yelp App. You are also welcome to call us during business hours and get on the list well in advance of your desired time, even days in advance. The sooner you get on the list, the sooner you get seated. We go off the time your party got on the list. *Keep in mind, this is not a reservation. A reservation guarantees you to be seated at your desired time. This is a call-ahead list and works really great, especially with advance actions. On weekends, getting on the list even 10 minutes before you arrive is great!

The Doo-Dah Diner was founded in 2012 by Patrick and Timirie Shibley, two native Wichitans who wanted to create a casual breakfast and lunch restaurant with the same laid-back vibe that Wichita is known for. Chef Patrick’s culinary career has taken him to Denver, Northern California, Cincinnati, Lawrence and Kansas City, but it didn’t take him long to realize there’s no place like home.

WELCOME TO THE DOO-DAH COUNTER
Come for the Food, Stay for the Company Richard Holmes pulled up on his tricycle not long after we first opened. And had been back nearly daily, sometimes multiple times a day, and without a doubt, had added thousands of friends to his world. We finally convinced him to write about some of the people he meets at our counter. We hope you enjoy his stories as much as we do.
