You can see in a past review that our top gastropub pick in the Omaha metro is Benson Brewery. The brewmaster Jimmy Vollmer creates unique and top quality craft beer. The kitchen creates more than just bar food but top quality unique tastes for the solid menu.
I have tried a lot of Mac n Cheese in the city. There have been some served up with very little cheese or flavor. There have been served up as an entree but barely quality as an appetizer.
The best I have found is at Benson Brewery. It is a healthy portion but not too much. It has a stellar blend of cheese and is topped off with some tasty crumbs. Overall, a top choice. Benson also has a lot of epic brews to pair with this dish. Ask Ben for his suggestion or try a flight to select your own.
A well crafted burger is an amazing find. I was on a search around Omaha and the Old Market to find that burger. It has to have flavor in a thick beef patty, a bun that doesn’t end up mushy and options to make it your own. You can read all my reviews on Yelp.
The best burger in the Old Market is definitely the Tavern Burger at Jackson Street Tavern. The flavor was very good and the bun held up to the contents. The venue isn’t my favorite but burgers seem hard to find in the Market.
The overall best burger and venue is experience has to be Nite Owl. The space is funky cool and they have Tots! I had the Nite Owl burger and the patty was thick and the bun was great. This has to be on your burger list.
Wilson & Washburn has a very good burger just like everything on their menu. They have the beer selection to pair with it. Their housemade thick cut chips are excellent.
Benson Brewery is also a top mention with an extensive craft beer selection to make it a stellar meal. The venue and extensive menu always make this a top selection.
Omaha Tap House was disappointing for a place that says they are known for their burgers. The patty was flat and not great. They do have a lot of options and creative burgers but for me it starts with the meat.
