AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Located near the heart of the former Omaha stockyards, Johnny’s Café is often listed as one of the best restaurants in town, and it’s also the oldest. Since 1922, Johnny’s Café has been serving great steaks (which once were fresh off the hoof). Granted, it doesn’t look like much on the outside—or inside for that matter; it was originally just a small saloon for cowboys—but the steaks are indeed worth the drive from any distance. The granddaughters of the founder, Frank “Johnny” Kawa, now run the place and are proud to tell you the story of how their Grandpa, a Polish immigrant, built this classic business.
