When I was stationed out there this place was a place we would go at least once a month. Fireballed steak is my standard go to. I will definitely be back here any visits to Nebraska.

There were no problems. My biggest beef when I go here is having to repeat myself 20 times during the ordering process. Other than that it's not bad, food was good, service was friendly.

Great service and preparation, I liked the way it was prepared in front of you. The meat had nice flavor, but was still a to little chewy for me. Bread was great, French fries could have been crispier.

My son had a meat packed steak Philly and I had chicken. Their PepperJax BBQ (secret recipe) rocks! I've tried every kind of sauces, and this one really stands out-wish as old in stores. Friendly crew.

Cool sandwich place in the Market District. Portions were big and you can order your Phili in a number of different forms, like salad. Prepared to order.
