“Fast food featuring BBQ food. Although this is a chain restaurant it doesn't necessarily remind you of one. Rather it feels more like a small town BBQ joint. ”

“Good steaks etc. Nebraska fed beef. They provide peanuts and don't mind if you throw the shells on the floor. You may choose to do that but I just can't get passed that idea. :) :) ”

Bakery
“Originated in Hastings, NE and has become an icon in the cookie business. Why bake when you can let Eileen do it for you? Located in a strip mall north of Family Fresh Market.If you have any sense at all you will pick up a dozen or two of these yummy cookies to munch on during your long car trip or just because you can. You will be very popular with anyone you share them with!!”
