I have been looking through the WH and noticed that a lot and I mean A LOT
of Restaurants are giving really good deals and great coupons.
Check it out try some place different and don't forget your coupon.

We don't go out to eat as much anymore maybe a for a Jimmy John's or fastfood value item .99 cents. We have saved a bunch of cash, and lost weight......... unbelievable.

I know this will help, love those coupons.

What do you think?

Just trying to drum up some conversation is all, sorry I asked.

And you wonder why folks post a few then quit this site.

Default Eating out!

I just moved from one part of this city to another and am enjoying the search process for good restaurants in my new area. I moved from West Omaha to North Omaha - wow! Could I blog about the "North Omaha" stigma and my reality but.... That is off topic. Restaurants... last night we went to OJ's on 30th just east of the 680 exit toward Dodge Park. They have beef and cottage cheese enchiladas! WOW! what an interesting combo. I had not been there for about 25-30 years. The interior is as I remember - the staff as friendly and the food - well my favorite part was the green chili spiced salsa on the table - EXCELLENT!! Next time I'll try a tostado or something a bit lighter than the "gut-buster" enchilada.

I am interested in trying Matt's on 90th which is also close to our new home in Cunnginham Lake Hills. Any comments on its food and feel?

I found these restaurants by using 4114openhouses.com link to google's Places Nearby. Just click on search the map and put in your address.

Any other GREAT places to eat out north? What about the little Italian restaurant on Irvington Road? Take out possibility?

And, yes always looking for a good value!

Hey Theresa - you're right about OJs! What a dive - and just what I love!

Have you been to Jimmy C's on North 30th? I haven't, but it intrigues me! And there is, of course, the old standby: Harolds.

I was recently at Nite Hawkes Cafe, down on 16th & Carter Blvd. I'd highly recommend the Biscuits & Gravy!

Mangia Italiana! I've only had their pizza so far, but it is very very tasty. Takeout is the only possibility, unless you want to eat in their tiny parking lot. They claim the food tastes like the owner's sicillian great grandparents did. While Omaha has a long tradition of Italians (particularly Sicillians) opening restaraunts and steakhouses, my 84 year old grandmother (daughter of says a lot of the old places like Malara's and the ones that have since closed, have lost their authenticity over time. I'll have to get her some Sugo (pronounced Zoo-goh) and meatballs and do the ultimate test.
