Any good restaurants in Omaha, NE?

For breakfast or lunch or dinner? Thanks.

    1. What type of food? What area of town are you interested in?

      1. My husband's family lives in Omaha and there are places we hit up every time we visit:

        Big Fred's Pizza is one of those hole-in-the-wall places that, as soon as you walk in the door, you *know* the pizza is going to be good.

        Gorat's is a great steakhouse when other people are paying :)

        The Garden Cafe has huge portions (seriously, unless you are sharing with four people go with the "junior" size of everything [you'll still have leftovers]) and I highly recommend the potato casseroles. They also have great breakfast stuff and the bakery stuff is great.

          I never got into the Big Fred's addiction. Maybe it was to West Omaha... I grew up on La Casa's pizza. I wonder if it is still as good as I remember. I recommend Malara's, for nostalgic reasons, V Mertz for modern fine dining, and Johnny's Cafe for steaks.
