We ate at this restaurant for the first time tonight (8/29) and it was fabulous. The place was empty but the staff were very friendly and the food was fast and good. We got two egg rolls and two entrees and it was only $20. And we have lots of leftovers for lunch tomorrow. The atmosphere was clean and there is plenty of seating. There is a lunch buffet from 11-2:30 which I am assuming is very good. We were recommended this restaurant by a neighbor as the best Chinese food around. And we'd have to agree. It wasn't greasy or fried and the veges were plentiful and cooked tender. A very large menu and also included some American fare as well for those not a fan of Chinese food. I'd recommend the Chinese egg rolls.
I really like Dr. Rhodes. He always seems very knowledgeable and explains everything to me without making me feel like an idiot. He is sensitive to my health concerns and has taken time on several occasions to sit and discuss personal things with me. I would highly recommend him and his practice, which is a new place with friendly staff.
This. Place. Is. Great! My spouse and I love to get decaf frapacinos here and walk around the capitol building late in the evening on a warm summer night. The prices are comparable with a Starbucks or Scooters, but you get a locally owned feel and a locally owned flavor. The baristas are always friendly and the beverages are always worth the craving (and I often have a craving for it). I always pick them over a national chain.
If you are in Lincoln and you want Chinese food, you MUST go to Fortune Palace. I think it is safe to say that I have been to all of the Chinese restaurants in Lincoln, and this has ALWAYS, consistently been the best. I really like their fried rice (especially with shrimp) and their crab rangoons are amazing. The price is pretty typical for chinese good, 6 bucks for an individual portion - maybe 9 bucks for a family sized portion.
Dr. Sullivan handled my allergy issues and set me up for my allergy shots. He is a very knowledgeable and sensitive specialist. His practice is probably the best place in Lincoln to go for needs of this type.
Started seeing Dr. Fisher at age 4 and continued into adulthood. He has a very pleasant staff and a small, personal office. There are TVs in each room to distract you from the procedures. He works well with children and adults.
A more upscale sports bar. Both locations are huge, packed with a multitude of big screen TVs. Not being a sports fan did not matter though, as the location is great all on its own. The beer prices are pretty average for Lincoln, and they offer pitchers. I know that on Friday's they have appetizers sitting out for their patrons (i.e. chips and salsa, some fried foods, etc...). It's a fun place that always seems to be popular.
Another Lincoln staple, talk to anybody who has lived in Lincoln for 20+ years, and they will have been to Lee's. It's just really good fried chicken, nothing too fancy. The service is spotty, the restaurant itself is old and it shows it, but you still go because it's always worth it. It's a little out of the way, but again, you still go.
Burritos the size of your head, and oh so good. Being close to the UNL campus, this place is a staple for college students and downtowners alike. This place offers so much more than it's national chain doppelganger Chipotle, with a wider variety of choices and a great atmosphere. They have a jerk chicken burrito and a buffalo chicken burrito, which are highly recommended.
I used to go to Duggan's a lot as a kid with my dad and play shuffleboard and pool and I loved it. As I grew up I started going to listen to my friend's bands play live music. It's really a cross between a biker bar, a small town bar and a college bar with an open mike night, it just depends on the night. When you are there, it is obvious that it has been around for a LONG time. It's your typical bar setting, reasonable drink prices and occasional good live music, especially on the weekends.
