Is Johnny's on 24th and L street still in business? In the 1970's they had the best Prime Rib in the country. I think I can say that with accuracy since I visited a lot of the so called best steakhouses in most Major cities.

Yes. You would have known that had you read the blog I linked too in my first post

Just teasing!

Here is what it had to say.

Johnny's:

Johnny's Cafe has been an anchor of South Omaha, right on the edge of the former Union Stockyards. Johnny's was recently featured in the film About Schmidt.




Johnny's has a loyal regular following, although I do think it's slipped a bit since I first sampled their fare back in the 1970s. Johnny's is still operated by the Kawa family.

Johnny's had a short-lived second location in Millard.

The place known as Johnny's Italian Steak House in Village Point(e), which is a chain, has no connection to the original Johnny's in South Omaha.

Thanks for the update David. In the 1970's I was going to Omaha quite a bit and Johnny's was on my favorites list. After I dropped my girl friend that lived in Omaha I don't go there much now. I can't afford the gas LOL.

If you like really greasy fast food it is.

I get Broncos sometimes, because everyone says they are sooo good. So I stop. Then I eat it and am disappointed. But maybe I caught them on an off day. So I go back. . still nothing great.

I must be missing something. The burgers are paper thin, the fries are grease balls. I'm not sure what the hype is about.

Talk about a nice gig. Make crappy food and get the entire town to talk about how wonderful you are. How does that happen?

I haven't eaten at Broncos in probably 13 years or so, but back then I always liked their hot dogs and fries. Maybe they've slipped since then.

I've never tried the hot dogs there. I'm not sure I've tried the hot dogs at any fast food place. . I wonder if there is a difference, a hot dog is kind of a hot dog. . right?

America loves unhealth. It's practically our trademark.
