Hi, I lived in Omaha until about the age of 21 and one of my favorite burger places was (and still) is B & G's. Everytime I visit Omaha I just have to get my fix at B & G's and Big Freds Pizza. Yum!!

My sister and I have tried to get the recipe from them and have looked online and we have tried different recipes but we just can't find out how they make their food taste so good.

Does anyone know how to make those?? Actually last time I visited in Omaha in October I did visit B & G's and the food didn't taste the same. Not sure what was going on but something was different and I noticed different people working there. Did they change ownership or something?

It is on about 78th and Dodge in a little strip mall. Almost across from the Methodist Hospital turn-off at the gas station. Look it up in the phonebook. Like I said when I visited in October the food wasn't as good as usual. I can't believe you haven't heard of it. Have you heard of Big Fred's???

Oh yes, Big Fred's of course I know the Family.

I will have to give B&G's a try, wow right under my nose. Go Figuire. Thanks, a burger does sound good this weekend.

B&G Tasty Foods, home of the loose meat sandwich. It's located a couple doors down from Jam's. If you've ever been to a Maid-Rite it's pretty much the same thing.

Maid-Rite is a chain based out of Des Moines. They have many locations around the country, several in the Omaha metro Maid-Rite Corporation (http://www.maid-rite.com/newlocations/newlocations.shtml - broken link). I don't know exactly how to make it, but it is just ground beef with some seasonings and pickles.

B & G was under the same ownership until about 2000. They have changed ownership a couple times since then, but this year it was purchased by a long-time B & G employee. The secret recipe is still used! I have tried made-rites and other loosemeats, but none compare to the original BG burger. I also have moved from the area but I am sure to hit B & G, Big Fred's and Harr's whenever I am back in Nebraska.

I do the same exact thing and then I get a runza also.. LOL small world... I have also tried many different recipes and there is ALWAYS something missing. I would give anything to have that recipe but I asked when I was there the last time and it was a "no go". I am getting hungry for one right now. I also love the cheeseburgers.
