Joe Tess Place

tv show: Diners Drive-Ins and Dives

Well...what say? The place is an institution, its been down the street from me for ever and I have always driven past many a times. I've heard my tales of its greatness and its faults. Today I finally got to experience Joe Tess' and saw both its greatness and its faults.

Amato's is delicious! The service, not so great, that is why they only get 4 stars. Many times I've sat and wondered where our food or coffee is, but the food makes up for it.

So amazing. Love the oven fried chicken, the cornbread was phenomenal, the fried okra and mac and cheese were awesome.

California Taco

tv show: Diners Drive-Ins and Dives

After eating a California Steak Taco and sharing some flour tortilla chips with my wife (which we didn't even finish), I was full! Everything appeared to have been freshly made, the steak had a lot of flavor and the flour shell was different than any other taco place I've been to.

Jones Bros. Cupcakes

tv show: Cupcake Wars

These cupcakes are a touch expensive at over $3/each, but I'm slowly becoming desensitized to it (scary thought). If I only had the choco-cake I'd be awarding 3 stars, but that Tres Leches is def worth at least 4, so I'm awarding 3 but calling it 3.5.

Caniglia's Venice Inn

tv show: Food Wars

We saw this restaurant on Food,Wars, and being lifelong West Coasters on our first visit to Nebraska, we knew that we wanted an authentic Omaha steakhouse experience. Caniglia's certainly fit the bill.

tv show: Man v. Food Nation

There are also a lot of things to like about the place, though. The ricotta blueberry pancakes are delicious and huge. The bacon is perfectly cooked. The omlettes are amazing. The service, while sometimes slow, is friendly. The owner is always there, friendly and chatting up his customers. The price is fair. The potatoes, while not hashbrowns, are still tasty.

The Drover

tv show: Man v. Food Nation

Much better than a chain. Service was great and I loved the salad bar you get with an entree. I was there 4 months ago(posting a bit late), but I cannot remember a steak better before or since. Well worth the trip. And definitely more value and better quality than at a fancy steak place.

Pudgy's Pizzeria

tv show: Man v. Food Nation

For Omaha, this place is the definative deep dish pizza...but probably for anywhere else where deep dish is the norm it may not be. So we will take this from an Omaha point of view. Its good pizza, filling, pizza...hence the name. Not really the origin of the name, I know, but if they will add some girth to you.

Starsky's Bar and Grill

Had some friends in from Australia. After a long, hot day at the zoo, we were in need of a little nourishment and beverage before heading off to our next venue.

tv show: Food Paradise

I tried Roundabouts this past Sunday. My boyfriend purchased a Groupon, and we didn't want to cook lunch on our lazy Sunday. Round-Abouts is a place that specializes in pot pies of sorts. They are little crusts filled with savory ingredients. They do also offer sweet dessert options, though I didn't try any.
