Nettie's

I had not been to Nettie,s for quite a while as I have to admit I remember going there in the 70-80's when they were up in a house on 24th Street. Stopped in for my favorite chili. It still has the great pieces of pork with a wonderfully spicy taste to it. Great service and food - nothing has... read more

The usual fare for us at Nettie's is a chili with egg and a chicken enchilada. Of course the chips and salsa (which are perhaps the best in the free world) precede the main course. I am always surprised why I don't take the short trek to Nettie's more often. I need to correct that.

I'd love to see you around here more -- those chips and salsa aren't going anywhere anytime soon, so stop in anytime! It's fantastic that you've found some favorites on the menu, and I'm looking forward to seeing you for more! Best, Tina Ziccardi (Co-Owner) More

Everyone told me this is where you go in Omaha for authentic Mexican food. I was raised on Mexican food in El Paso, Texas and this is not very authentic and somewhat overpriced. A Chile Relleno in a bell pepper instead of a Poblano. Are you kidding.Food was not bad, but definitely not exciting.

I'm sorry to see you left here unhappy, Don -- the last thing I'd want to do is disappoint you. We use authentic Mexican recipes from my mother, so that may have been a little different than what you were used to in El Paso. In any case, I'd love for you to come back and try some of our... More

My standard order when I lived there was a potato & pea enchilada (try it you'll like it),.a chicken enchilada, and a dish of Nettie's chili. The chili is the real secret. It is a wonderful sauce with chunks of pork that is spicy without being outrageous (at least for my taste buds). I moved to Oklahoma 6 years ago... More

This is the best Mexican food I have eaten since I moved away from New Mexico. The salsa is fresh and delicious. I ordered the special burrito, which had the perfect amount of heat in the red sauce that complemented the great flavors inside.The enchiladas also looked scrumptious. The service was prompt and attentive. Nettie's is at the top of... More

Horrible sick and wrong. We were served chips that had been on someone else's table. Soggy and gross. Then no one would wait on us. One waitress just stared at us then when we asked her to wait on us. She put her hand on my shoulder and said someone would be over. I don't get what her job was.

JOHNGALTNE, Owner at Nettie's Fine Mexican Food, responded to this review

I'm quite surprised and baffled by your review. Let me assure you and everyone else that product is never reused from table to table. To reuse chips or anything previously served at someone else table would be to quote you "Gross". We absolutely never do that! Period! I don't know what you think you observed but it wasn't that.

This chili is tomatoes, peppers and pulled pork. Be prepared for wonderful flavor and a bit on the spicy side. If its too hot by itself try pouring it over a chicken enchilada. For an extra touch, add an egg.
