    If you ever get through GI you really need to stop at Sin City, Nathan Detroit's, & Uncle Eds.

    lol... the point is on average virtually anywhere else is better... which is pretty much the definition of "you have awful food". i wasn't picking places well known for food in most cases -- on purpose. i was picking places of similar size to compare properly.

    you know if i'm picking out north freakin dakota of all places as better that you've got a bloody problem.

    Had Toppers for the first time. You're not allowed to have an opinion on food.

    I live in outstate MN. I literally sit and daydream sometimes about all the good food I'm going to eat when back in lincoln. Give me some El Toro and Buzzard Billies and I'm good for a while. Conroy's donut holes used to be awesome as well but I guess they closed after moving locations?

    Firehouse Subs is the Porterhouse steak of sub restaurants. And there's no reason to get anything other than the #10 brisket.

    My wife and I try to hit up Taco Inn if we are in Lincoln. LOVE IT.

    We also like Red Robin and daVincis


    On topic, I have a Fire House subs about a mile away from us. I'd like to try it more, but it always loses out due to being expensive or family never will all agree to it. One of the main things is always price.

    I had it when it was starting in Wisconsin. It's gone downhill. Still better than 98% of the food I've had in Nebraska and I've lived in 8 states.

    You have no idea what you’re talking about. Cousins is your pick for best sub as well? Wow, just wrong. WI restaurants are terrible. Tornado room was a piss poor attempt at a steak. What other awesome places in WI have you been to so I can make sure I avoid them.

    Not to ruin your day, but Nathan Detroits and Uncle Eds are closed. Sin City is there and I like it. Kinkaider has replaced Nathan Detroits. I've always enjoyed it when I go.

    It starts out with a loaf of homemade beer bread sliced horizontally 4 times.

    Next in order of assembly is:

    Mayo, Pepper Jack cheese, cucumber slices, Tri-Tip, red onion, red bell pepper, another layer of bread, Swiss cheese, more Tri-Tip, pickle slices, Muenster cheese, a bacon weave, another layer of bread, spicy brown mustard, more Swiss cheese, smoked turkey breast, tomato slices with fresh cracked black pepper and even more Swiss cheese. This all was then placed in my hot kamado for 3 minutes. Next, I brought it inside and added the final layers of lettuce and the bread topper.

    Here's an action shot of me cutting it.

    Kleit...It seems that not liking Nebraska food is one thing. Writing a million words why any food anywhere is better than Nebraskas' is kinda pathological. I dare say that if you could have your absolutely favorite meal in Omaha you would hate that too...

    Derhusker... I would like to make a standing reservation!

    How the hell does a guy eat Toppers and it occurs to him to dredge up a 4 year old thread on Firehouse Subs? Charlie, you're the rain man of this board.

    you should try their Brikset sandwich. It really is a cut above other fast food sandwiches that I’ve had.

    This thread was four years old. I can't imagine the planning that went in to setting up this kind of reply. I applaud the effort!

    He brought it up. I hadn't thought about this thread in however long it had been. A year? More?

    Nebraska food is not good in comparison to more places than I can count. I still love runzas. Guilty pleasure.

    Hell, I will even make exceptions.

    The best prime rib I ever had was at this place in juniata nebraska outside hastings.

    The rest of the all you can eat meal is a junk salad bar. But the prime rib was top notch.

    If you ever get a chance to over to Sacramento NE. The restaurant is called "Speakeasy". The steak is called the Tomahawk. 39 oz, 2 potatoes, and 2 salads. It's actually is a meal for 2. It's not served with a knife, not needed.

    Seems like you’ve been around Kearney a bit. If you go to Panda Express instead of Suwannee Thai that tells me all I need to know.

    So have I. Which is my point with 99% of this thread. It was good though. And i think they closed almost decade ago give or take. The food place that was in that shop beforehand was beyond a joke. Not sure what's there now I haven't been back in 3 years.
