P.O. Pears: The best burger bar ever!!!
Like the website says:
P.O. Pears Good Food & Good Time Saloon. A Lincoln landmark that has stood like a guardian over the intersection of 9th & M Streets since 1980. That's almost two and a half decades of Burgers & Beer.
Favorite Dish: The Original Burger -- $5.49

In truth, it depends on where...
In truth, it depends on where I am in my cycle. If I have PMS, Lee's Chicken is great, artery-clogging fun. It's not too far from Pioneer's Park (ask anybody for directions). Valentino's is the famous pizza joint, but the best and only location to visit is on Holdredge by East Campus. Afterwards, load up on ice cream the way it used to taste before those evil corporate entities made it all bland. Just saunter over to the Ag College (across the street from Val's) and enjoy a cone, or buy a half-gallon to scarf down like a pig on your way home.
Overeating...it's a midwestern thang. Dig in and enjoy!
The Mill: Coffee Break
Smack in the middle of the historic Haymarket district downtown, The Mill takes the old brick warehouse look and goes with it. Mismatched furniture, random bits that look like they could come from a junkyard and just a general "worn" look.
A popular hangout for university students at night (UNL is a few blocks away), business people and mothers with strollers during the day, and lots of the older crowd in the early weekend mornings. There are people from everywhere here.
Favorite Dish: Any of the drinks!

New China Buffet: Buffet with large variety and Mongolian Grill
Buffet has a wide variety of choices, the quality is consistently high, and the prices are moderate...
Less expensive for lunch, but with slightly fewer seafood choices than at dinner time.
Friendly employees and management.
Favorite Dish: The Mongolian Grill, included with the buffet price, is probably the only one in Lincoln.
You can pick your own uncooked ingredients--Then a chef will cook them for you on a large,
My favorite restaurant is...
My favorite restaurant is called Shogun. It's a Japanese restaurant, complete with sushi, and a tepenyaki grill. (That means it's cooked right in front of you, and with plenty of flare.)
Another great restaurant is called Crane River. They make lots of excellent vegetarian items, so if you're looking for something hearty but not too heavy, this is your place.
Shogun has a wonderful atmosphere. The cooks are the best part, because while half of their goal is to cook your food, the other is to entertain you.
Crane River is known for it's beers, and it's all brewed in the building.
Favorite Dish: Shogun: The sushi is good, but Nebraska produces such good beef you can't pass up having steak.
Crane River: They make killer root beer, and have lots of good desserts.
