The Deets on Lincoln Eats

The Deets on Lincoln Eats...

From traditional American fare to Asian specialties and jazzed up bar food, each is working to dominate the Lincoln food scene. And no matter what you’re craving, what time you’re eating or how big your group is, there is a local Lincoln gem waiting to arouse your taste buds.

Here are a few of the must tries:


Yia Yia’s Pizza – Pizza inspired by global toppings is served alongside ice-cold beer (over 375 different bottled beers). Each slice of pizza pie is made fresh and served with a hunk of freshly baked bread. Be sure to ask for a side of red or green pesto, you won’t be sorry.

Honest Abe’s Burgers and Freedom – “The Last Burger You Will Ever Want.” Abe’s features a rotating menu of burger masterpieces from the Ground UP Restaurants group, and they know a thing or two about how to make a burger taste like a million bucks. Add on an order of Freedom Fries and you will never feel more patriotic.


Banhwich Café – If you only try one restaurant while visiting Lincoln, Banhwich is the place. This Vietnamese sandwich shop is serving up traditional Banh Mi sandwiches with big flavor, fast service and killer prices. Add an egg to any of the sandwiches and you have the perfect breakfast sandwich.

Amu Manu Ramen Bar – The ramen craze is hitting the coasts and it’s making a big splash in Lincoln too. Amu Manu is redefining a college staple with fresh, made in-house hearty ingredients that are sure to warm the soul.


The Doughnut Hole – The perfect morning kick-starter. Fresh, fried and delicious, the Doughnut Hole creates classic-flavored doughnuts and pushes the envelope with unique flavors like PB&J, maple bacon long johns and chocolate doughnuts filled with peanut butter and crispy rice-topped treats.

Ivanna Cone – This eccentric handmade (yes, handmade) ice cream shop is family-owned and operated and features classic and unique flavors served by the scoop all year round. It’s a must try Lincoln staple. Be sure to bring cash or check (it’s all they take).
