Honest Abes Burgers & Freedom in Lincoln, NE
Lincoln is a college town, thus, there are many diners, dives, and sports bars to pick from. However, a favorite dive of mine and all my friends is called Honest Abe's. It is about 5 miles from the main campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, but it has everyone buzzing. It has been open a little over a year and they have only gotten busier. On a Saturday, the line is out the door almost the whole day. The main reason so many people like it is their uniqueness. They only serve burgers and fries, but the burgers they serve blow your mind and taste buds. Their burgers have unique combinations of different aiolis, jams, vegetables, cheeses, etc. Many people I know go at least once a week, this is mainly due to the fact that they have a permanent menu with 5 burgers, a quarterly rotating menu, and one new special burger every week. Thus, everyone tries to make sure that they always try the special, but you also want to make it through the other two menus. To top it off with a cherry, they also do all this scrumptious cooking with only antibiotic free meat and organic ingredients. Everyone who comes to Lincoln must make a stop at Honest Abe's Burgers and Fries.
