2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012 via mobile

Went there for lunch. One cook, one waitress. Took forever to get my food and it was wrong. I didnt say anything, I was glad to have food. The waitress ssid she didnt know where all the people came from.......Hello, its lunch time. Chicken fry was saturated with grease. Too low of a cooking temp. Not going back.

Just a short hop from the airport, this is a small friendly efficient cafe specializing mostly in comfort foods for breakfast lunch and dinner. Owners on premises most of the time and will go out of their way to satisfy you--food is reasonably priced -- a good stopping off point when arriving in Omaha

Thank cancuncash
