I'm all over the place trying to find the goodies in this town, but I must admit that the further west/south I go the more... erm...soulless (for lack of a better word) it seems to get. Maybe less interesting is a better way to put it.

Oh, I live on the eastside by UNO medical center.

Yeah, I was just thinking about that.

It's kind of like deciding to eat at Burger Lust, on about 18th & Vinton - or go eat at Applebees. I'll take the former. It just has more "ummphhh" or something.

MMMMMMMM. Burger Lust. They have the best breakfast in town. Homemade hash. There burgers are nothing to mess with either. I feel sorry for anyone who would chose a chain burger joint over Burger Lust.

Ever been to Dinkers' Burgers at about 29th & Martha? I've heard they have fantastic food.

A buddy of mine and I are intentionally going to these cool little "hole in the wall" joints about once per month. We're having a blast.

I've never been to Dinker's, but I hear that it is great. You should try out Stella's down in Bellevue.

I started a burger thread since we seemed to be getting off topic.

I like both parts of the city and visit the east quite often (as a side note, we in west Omaha Aren't snooty just because we're suburban although thanks for the stereotype)

When we moved here we chose West O for the simple reason that we had lived on the east coast our entire lives. East of 72nd was the east coast equivalent. Small houses, small rooms, small lots, small garages, you get the picture. Not to say that this is a negative, but we wanted to experience something different.

Hmmm... Our house is a 2-story brick home, with a total of 4,000 sf - a smallish 2-car attached garage, and sits on a lot that's an acre. My wife's family, from Council Bluffs, is still dumbfounded - because it's pretty much everything they were sure was NOT in North Omaha.

It's really interesting to me how much my perception of North Omaha has changed, after living here for several years. It's an incredibly diverse area - from the small houses on small lots that you described, to heavily wooded sparsely populated areas. I'm still exploring - and when summer comes, my wife & I will be puttering around on the motorcycle, seeing the sights and getting to know the area even better!
