Downtown Lincoln has grown into a food lover's paradise over the last couple of months. It seems there's something for everyone!
It's time to say goodbye to boring food and hello to the fresh new tastes of downtown Lincoln. The latest addition in the heart of the city is Pepperjax Grill.
It's the second location in town, just barely a week old, where they're serving up hot cheese steaks well into the night.
"We stay open 'til 3, try to catch the college scene, the bar crowd, stuff like that," General Manager Forrest Savage said. "Hopefully that works out."
Savage thinks they've got what it takes to succeed.
"We're just better," Savage said. "It tastes better, everything we do is better so that's why we're America's best Philly.
A block to the north, we find Jersey Mike's. Here, owner Ross Olsbo says freshness is the name of the game.
"Nothing is prefabricated. When you walk in the door, we're going to slice your meet and your cheese right in front of you," Olsbo said. "We're going to ask you how you want it. You get to view it. You get to see what's put in your sandwich."
He says you got to try it 'Mike's Way,' dressed to the nines piled high.
"I think you get in here and you try it, you're going to love it."
Less than a block away, it's a firefighters dream come true, at Firehouse Subs. Here, you'll feel like you're battling a blaze as you chow down on one their signature toasted subs.
"What makes us different is we steam our meats and cheeses and toast our bread so you get a really nice hot sub," owner Michael Shanahan. "It's just different and unique compared to anything around here or what Lincoln has ever been used to."
Finally, do you wish you were at the beach in the middle of winter?
"You walk into a Wahoo's, you know you're in a Wahoo's," Bo Prince said.
That's where you'll find their famous fish taco and a taste of the Hawaiian Islands.
"You can either get mild or spicy cajun," Prince said. "On that it's going to have cheese, cabbage, Pico de Gallo and our homemade roasted pepper green sauce which is fat free."
That's just a quick look at a few of Lincoln's newest areas to catch a bite. Trust us, there are plenty more.
If you're in the mood for pizza, there's Toppers. Or if you're craving some barbecue, Dickey's has you covered. There's also a new Raising Canes downtown.
