If you have never had a runza, then you are missing out! They are delicious. Their fries are usually very fresh and they have great burgers, too!

It doesn't matter if you are trying the hamburgers or the runza's you are going to be happy with Runza. Great american food. Fries and onion rings are awesome. Good home cooked taste. Kind of pricey but it is good fast food.

After reading about runzas and seeing recipes in magazines, I was anxious to give one a try. The loose meat burger with cabbage and onions was delicious. The bread "bun" was tender and not overly doughy. Their fries and onion ring combo was a bargain and very tasty. The counter service restaurant was remarkably clean and the staff was friendly.

A nice place for a quick lunch. We were at state fair and didn't want the usual "fair" food.we went out of fair grounds and drove up and down to street parallel to fair grounds, and came upon the RUNZA and stopped in. Very friendly staff and everyone had smiles on their faces, Especially on a hot August day, that... More

They make them fresh! Not baked under a heatlamp . They taste like they just came off the grill. We enjoy the onion rings as well.

Good ice cream, good burgers. The drive through is convenient. The prices are great, too. If you are going to pick fast food, this place is a good choice.

Read about the Nebraska Runtz and wanted to try one while here. It was good, glad I gave it a try. The fries were very good. The restaurant was clean with lots of seating, staff friendly and fast. It was very busy, the drive thru line wrapped around the building at lunch time but did not effect the service inside.

Ya gotta love a good runza! Tastes like homemade! Not only that but the burgers actually look like the picture in the advertisements. Frings are good too...which is actually a mix of both onion rings & their amazing crinkle cut french fries.

Stopped by over lunch time to place an order to go. It was a little unorganized. The food was "fast food." The Runza-their signature sandwich was interesting and worth trying. I would give this place a second try.
