Whatcha Lookin' For?

Just the Beginning

One of our favorite things to do is to go to an establishment and order several appetizers instead of a meal.  This gives us the opportunity to try several different flavors at once without spending a lot of time or money.

Top 5 Nebraska Appetizers:

Autumn's List:
  1. Onion Rings, The Cellar, Kearney - I love these onion rings!  They are homemade deliciousness at its finest.
  2. Spinach Artichoke Wontons, Jasper's Bar and Grill, Lincoln (Eagle) - When I saw these wontons on the menu, I had to order them.  What an interesting mix of flavors, unlike anything else around.
  3. Chili Cheese Fries, The Bar, Unadilla (Friday's only) - I look forward to Friday nights when I can get these fries.  The blend of chili and cheese is perfect on top of the crinkle-cut fries.
  4. Buffalo Chips, Chicken Coop, Grand Island - I love these spicy fried chips with ranch.  I also love that you can order them with anything at the Chicken Coop.
  5. Southwest Egg Rolls, Lazlo's, Lincoln - I have tried several versions of southwest egg rolls and those at Lazlo's are by far the best.  It is even better if you are there on the right day and can order them with a bowl of beer-cheese soup.

Dustin's List:  Note - Dustin refused to follow the Top 5 Nebraska rules.  He has included two restaurants that are not based in Nebraska, though they do have locations in Lincoln.  Please feel free to leave him comments about following his own rules.  I've been arguing with him about this for a year now, and have obviously not succeeded.

  1. Chicken Cheese Nachos, Bison Witches, Lincoln - I don't care that they have other locations in other states they are awesome!!!!
  2. Irish Nachos, Patty's Pub, Lincoln - Waffle fries are so good
  3. Chicken Nachos, Lazlo's, Lincoln - always a good bet
  4. Chicken Nachos, Brewsky's, Lincoln - order it with extra salsa.
  5. Armadillo Eggs, Buzzard Billys, Lincoln - Again, I don't care about the other locations - they are out of this world.
