I went out of my way to find this place and was highly disappointed. I'm expecting some really good dinner food. The menu is really limited and the prices are way too high for say a hamburger. I ordered the special (3 cheese burger) and a cup of chili. The chili was cold and when I pointed it out it... More

Found this place on Trip Advisor and wanted to try it out while in the Benson area. Decent food at a decent price. Expecially for Benson. It was a lot larger than I expected but it definitely was "dinner food". Nothing special but worth the visit. Try it out.

The place reminds me of an SNL skit, with the loud waitresses, juke boxes on the booth walls and mixed matched mugs. But, that's exactly what I love about it - nothing fancy- but, the food is sooooo good! Best over easy eggs with hashbrowns and pancake for $6!!! The menu says "small pancake". But, the pancake was the size... More

I figured out the last time I ate a meal in this space would have been in 1954 or 55. I lived in the Benson/Country Club neighborhood in those days, before relocating to Ohio, Colorado, Iowa, and then back to Omaha. The place itself shows it's been cleaned up and re-done a few times, but the ambiance and food, just... More

Unique diner in downtown Benson, NE that features terrific and very filling breakfast entrees. Spacious booths in back. Great hashbrowns and pancakes. Will return.

The food portions were small, the taste was decidedly average. The "Fantasy Island" was severely undersized, despite it being billed as the main attraction on the menu. There's not as much charm as Joe's and the servers are snappy and rude (busy restaurant is not an excuse for rude service). Bigger portions, cheaper prices, and friendlier staff are just a... More

Dear TripAdvisor, what is the best breakfast place in Omaha? Leo's Diner! Heck, Yeah! We got up early from a southend hotel to get to Leo's Diner early before a long trek back to NoDak. What a great place! The old decor is fabulous! Places like this are a GEM! Thanks to TripAdvisor for helping to point us in the... More

The large breakfast combo dishes are marvelous. The coffee cups are filled often and it's small town atmosphere is just like those of us who grew up dancing to the Beatles and Buddy Holly used to know.
