Great people, fun atmosphere, and phenomenal burgers!! Burgers are always changing so it never gets boring. Also, their cookies are so good!

WoW Great burgers, crazy good freedom fries. Quirky atmosphere! All work together to be a great local burger dive!

I have been a 7 year transplant to Lincoln and have noticed the love of beef. From Runza's to Tasty-in-and-out but nothing compares Honest Abe's in the whole town. Every burger I have had on the menu is great! I have even had a portabella burger and that was almost as good as the beef. These guys understand the fusion... More

By far the best burgers I have ever had. I would recommend this place to anyone! It is a little small for hot busy it can be but the food makes up for that!

Everything from the regualar all-American burger to a unique rotation of quarterly choices, and weekly one-off eats. My wife and I visit this place at least once a month, it is the best and shoudl not be skpped when in Lincoln. Go before 5:30 or after 7pm for dinner to avoid a line, this place is popular.

I would give the slight edge to Greta's Gourmet for "The Best Burger in Town". I really liked the food and the Abe Lincoln theme/decor of the restaurant is cool. Just wished there was more seating but other than that top notch food. I will be back to try another one of their burgers. Also try one of the cookies... More

Really enjoyed this burger. Need to go back and try all the different ones. They need to do sliders so you can try a few. Loved the truffle fries too. Only down side was place is small . Staff was really good. Will definitely go back.

I am a huge hamburger fan and my brother in law took us here to get lunch and we were not disappointed. I got the Best Hamburger Ever (that is the name on the chalk board) and I would have to agree it is pretty good. It was good to see the whole place filled and lots of people waiting... More

This is a cool little place tucked into a strip mall. I liked their Abe decorations... More importantly - my burger was very very good... but I was especially impressed with the fries. Either one would have been enough to bring me back, but I can't think of a place off hand that had better fries! Word's definitely gotten out... More

The menu is fun and exiting, just burgers but they are delicious. The topping choices are some of the best I have ever had. I would never have thought up some of these combos, but that is why I don't own a restaurant. You will be pleased with the selection of choices, and they have new ones all the time.... More
