Love it!

This is my favorite Greek food in Omaha. The hummus and pita bread is great. This is our "go-to" when we want Greek food. The staff is friendly and helpful.

We ate here our first night in Omaha. We were the 2nd table to be seated and at first were a little worried that the food wouldn't be good since we were their only customers but later on the place started to fill up. We stopped worrying as soon as we saw then menu and the desserts in the glass... More

I discovered Katie's while in college and have been there many many many times. It never ever disappoints. I never had bad service or bad food. Every single thing I've had is delicious! Oh man.. now I'm craving Katie's. Greek potatoes.. don't pass them up Katie's salad dressing... take a bottle home with you

We've been going to Katie's for 28 years. Best baklava I've ever had. I usually get a gyros, which is delicious, but my spouse always tries the various specials and loves them all. We've tried other Greek places but none compare!

We love greek food and this was one of the best. We had the Dolmades for an appetizer. Delicious! Wonderful flavor and tasty. We were a party of six and we each had something different. The portions were very generous. The gyros were huge and challenging to handle but delicious! I had the lamb skewers! The best! We ended with... More

The service was very good. The food was excellent. We had the tzatziki dip and warm pita bread were excellent. I had a gyros sandwich which was very good and not at all stingy with the meat. My wife had a Greek Salad which she said was very good except for the tomatoes which finding good ones this time of... More

Enjoyed the booth in the Qwest Center as well as visiting the restaurant in person. Loved the gyros, pitas and tzatziki dip!

Just an average greasy spoon posing as a Greek restaurant even when one realizes that Omaha is about 6000 miles from Greece!

My boyfriend said he remembers it being better in years back. The server was friendly, but we were a little uncomfortable with all her teasing; haha, I guess we just weren't wishing for that kind of experience. The food was fine, but nothing spectacular-- maybe we just ordered the wrong things.

Love the vegetarian appetizer platter -- order it for dinner, take half home, it's great the next day -- spanakopita, tiropita, olives, feta, pitas, tomatoes, onions. I usually add some Greek potatoes. Perfect.
