Darrow....

About Runzas....I love them too. However, in York (where I frequent), I noticed this past winter that the meat filling was becoming smaller and smaller. I remarked about this to a few people....who agreed. I love the dough.....but, come on....WHERE'S THE BEEF???!!!!!

Man vs Food should Travel to King Kong, a burger joint in Omaha, NE down the street from Rosenblatt Stadium. They serve a burger called the Super Kong, 4 1/2 pattys on a burger with all the toppings. I got stuffed with a Double Kong, a burger with 2 1/2 pound pattys and I could not imagine eating something twice the size of that, Thanks!

ROFLMAO

Ya'll are sooo funny.

I am a fan of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, and moved to Nebraska from the land of Paula Deen. My (old) friends and I all agree - we know literally hundreds of restaurants on Hilton Head Island (resort town) and in Savannah, GA, who could use Gordon's help, and laugh (shudder) about them constantly. A fancy name or high prices does not portend great food. While I don't get much seafood here (which means I don't get too many cooked shrimp, lobster, or crabs that can bounce twice if they hit the floor) I do have some special places here that I like to eat. Most people here at least know how to cook a steak that doesn't have the consistency and flavor of a tugboat mat, and comprehend the Italian 'al dente' when cooking pasta. They also put darned near anything in a homemade runza, which makes life very interesting! Yes I realize that grassfed beef and farm-raised hogs do make a difference in consistency and flavor, but really... instead of marketing to Asia, the beef people ought to try direct marketing to the East Coast. Most restaurants from Washington DC to Orlando simply don't know what good beef is. I've stayed in Nawlins (that's New Orleans for those who don't know) a number of times, too, and have only found a single good restaurant there (Court of Two Sisters) all other famous names to the contrary. Like Ramsay, I am a fan of fresh, locally grown, and natural; not processed (aka prechewed) and frozen.

The Peppermill Steakhouse in Valentine has great steak, excellent babyback ribs, and their homemade breading on their fried fish dinner is second to none - and, no bones!

There is a local place coming up on MvF Nation. I just saw it on the website for the establishment last night, but cannot find it right now.

Will update in case I remember/find it again.

Agreed went back to the East on vacation last month and found the beef to be lacking - had steaks on the grill and at the market and I was like whoa what these taste greasy and not very fresh. Granny I went to this City Market Cafe(?) place in Savannah and had shrimp and grits and collards and they were awesome. Other than beef I may not agree with you because I love Southern food and had great food on my trip but it was way too crowded down there, started to see the usual problems etc and was glad just to be a visitor. That said when I went back I also didn't see the big deal about sweet tea it was ok but I think I prefer pop.

Back to the topic. I think a Runza eating contest would be awesome - I love them but the best ones are usually ones that people make! The regular Runzas from the restaurant I agree are too small and I usually get 2 making for a $10 meal! That said I think they taste really good!

Man vs. Food in Nebraska wouldn't necessarily just be about Omaha as much as eating a giant steak, a bunch of Runzas, all you can eat Valentino's pizza, or BULL FRIES! That's right a bunch of hand battered deep fat fried beef testicles! For the squeamish I thought they tasted like chicken with a bit of an earthy flavor to them. Some cattlemen swear by them. In my part of Nebraska different towns have annual nut fries - they are not as good as a steak in my opinion but it is fun and allows us as Nebraskans some bragging rights!

Another Vote for the Peppermill...

I prefer to pass the Bourbon and hit the Alley while in Kearney, and if still up for it after work I actually prefer to head down to Burchell's...

Personally, I prefer lamb fries to calf, but both are yummy with cocktail sauce (no pun intended lol)
