Believe the reviews!

One visit and I'm a believer! I wish I was staying in Lincoln longer so I could go back. I had the pastrami... so flavorful, pretty lean...perfect proportions! My husband loved the beans (best beans ever--5 kinds of beans, rib meat, sauce, onion, wow!) and the brisket--great sauce!

Yes I've Bought pastrami at every place in NE that sells it. Most places sell pre-packaged, over-cured, frozen pastrami which leaves much to be desired. Greta's makes theirs in house, it is fresh, never frozen, cured and seasoned perfectly, and lightly smoked. I buy it by the pound (they slice to your requested thickness). If they sold a hot pastrami... More

The blue cheese burger is the best burger I've ever had. Also love the bun from le Quartier. Truly it is a gourmet burger. Best baked beans also with rib meat and bacon. Delicious😍😍😍😍😁

This place was so good I had to hit it up twice. The smoked half chicken was amazing. For the second time, I had a special habanero burger. Great taste without all the heat. Will definitely be going back to this place again.

I and my husband live in Phoenix, Arizona. We went to this place a couple years back with our daughter and her family, (one of my son-in-law's favorite places to eat) who live in Lincoln, the food was great, capreze salad was to die for, and the balsamic reduction is glorious. BUT the absolute best part of this restaurant/deli is... More

Greta's is a bit of a hidden gem. It's a small, deli-like space. The food is very good. The meats are local and fresh and cooked very well. The side dishes, sandwiches, and soups are delicious - I've yet to eat anything there that hasn't been both unique and tasty. This is not an average deli.

Not only the best food, but efficient and beyond accommodating. People are still talking about the food and service from our wedding! Best catering staff I've worked with!

I would give the food 5 stars, the service and ambiance 2-3 stars. The burgers are some of the best I've ever had.

Decided to try this place after reading the reviews, bad mistake. The place smelled really good and friendly staff but the hamburger was not good at all. I can't recommend anyone try the hamburgers.
