This is easily the best restaurant in the state. The Friday and Saturday buffets are the best. I think they make the best tamales and guacamole. The buffet has a large variety including cheese enchilada, pork, beef, salads and deserts. Anything off the menu is fantastic as well. I am not a big fan of their beans, which are a... More

This is an all you can eat buffet with an optional made to order. There is a good variety of foods with a salad bar and dessert bar as well. Guacamole is made fresh in house and it was very good.

We had heard of Anchor Inn from a few of our friends and seen it in the book 8 Wonders of Kansas, so we thought we would give it a try. It was good and our waitress was friendly. I wasn't to impressed with their chips. As we walked out we seen the buffet and wished we would of gotten... More

I have eaten at "The Anchor" since the 70's. I am not unbiased! I have also had meals travelling all over this and several other countries. My "last meal" just might be two Anchor Inn tacos and a red beer. Simple and to the point! The place has grown from a hole in the wall to a hole in the... More

Seems like people either love or hate this place. I stand firmly on the side of love, with a few caveats. The food here is very good. Authentic, hot, fresh, and there are plenty of choices of everyone (even for someone who doesn't particularly like Mexican food). This also represents the downside -- not everything turns over quickly, and some... More

My wife and I ate here, and both had the buffet. Everything seemed to be fresh, but no seasoning at all. The ground beef didn't appear to even have salt, the cheese dip was just cheese with no heat at all. Our friends ordered off the menu and weren't impressed either. They did have decent salads and desserts. The service... More

Well, most people love it or hate the Anchor. I don't understand the ones that hate it? I am glad I don't live in Hutchinson or I would eat there every day. The Buffet is great, especially on the weekends. Helen is my favorite waitress and always greets me with a smile.
