Has been awhile since I ate a Runza but this restaurant does not do them justice. Too much dough and too much pepper.

We love Runza and it’s a first stop in NE dining! We were perplexed to find out they don’t serve large shakes anymore. Why not? No one knew. Kind of nuts! Still love the food but we’re frustrated we can’t get large shakes!

They have very a very good variety of hamburgers and runzas. Normally the fries and onion rings are very good and not greasy. They also have salads and soup.

Who doesn't love a runza?? A cheese runza and onion rings are a great meal! The salads are great, too! Fast food that doesn't taste fast.

I was on-site for business, and the employees there suggested we stop there for lunch. Very quick, unique food. Never had anything like it since - awesome; will definitely revisit when in the area.

We used to live in Lincoln and any time we are back in the area we always go to Runza. I love their original Runza sandwich. We never eat fast food but this is our exception!

Runza is a Nebraska tradition and my recent visit reinforced this. We got a runza, hamburger and southwest chicken salad. All three were great and I'll be going back soon

My mother used to make us bierocks and we were the only kids in our town who knew what they were and how delicious a bierock (aka runza) sandwich is. Eating one of these was like going back to my childhood. I highly recommend trying...More
