Default Places to eat in and around Omaha...

We are big on Omaha steaks from our local Omaha Steaks store. My hubby will be traveling to Omaha shortly. Are there any good local places for him to have a nice, juicy, melt-in-your mouth steak? I would love to surprise him with your suggestions. Thanks!

Piccolos, on South 20th Street.

You'd never go there unless you know about. Here's a site with some reviews.

For that grand old Omaha steakhouse experience, try Johnny's Cafe in South Omaha or Gorats Steakhouse, two of the few old-school steakhouses left.

Is Farmer Brown's still open? I thought something else was in its place when we were back in town last month.

thanks for those; we'll have to try them. Someone we know suggested Runza fastfood, is it all that?

Runza has great fries, I can tell you that. Beyond that, I didn't care too much for them but I think that's because I'm not too into that style of food. Lots of other people love it though.

Another one worth mentioning is Old Country Buffet. Excellent food for a buffet, and my mom said they had the best peach cobbler she's ever had.
