“Just a fun place to stop.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

We stop here all the time on our way to Colorado. The food is decent but the atmosphere is great. All ages of people would enjoy Ole's.

“Really good midwestern food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

If you're uncomfortable with hunting, this isn't the place for you. This guy from a (literally) no-stoplight town in the middle of nowhere went all around the world hunting and fishing, and his trophies and pictures adorn the walls.

As for the food, really good midwestern fare: fired chicken, steak, burgers, et cetera. Try to work it out so that I'm passing around a meal time whenever I'm cranking across I 80.

“Great atmosphere and great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Nebraska has some of the nation's best beef and the staff at Ole's know how to cook a steak. The waitress was friendly, the price was affordable, and the food was great. We are so happy that the trophy animals are being preserved so well.
