This is one of the best caterers in Lincoln. Not only is the food amazing, they are very accommodating. We also had three of their servers and they were excellent.

I stopped by Greta's to pick up food for us to eat en route to the airport. It took longer than fast-food to get order, but everything was prepared from scratch - not even the Caprese Salad was pre-made. Everything was amazing!

Had lunch here with friends on Saturday and was fascinated by the wonderful assortment of deli items in stock. They do a lot of catering and also have great looking entrees to take home for dinner but we focused on the lunch menu. We enjoyed delicious sandwiches! The Reuben was great with the touch of pickled wonderfulness! The mustard potato... More

It's hard to describe. It's kinda a butcher shop. It's kinda a restaurant. Maybe it's more a catering house. It's in a run down strip mall off the beaten path. Most importantly the products and the food are wonderful. We have tried many of the brats. Chicken and pork. The Greta burgers are melt in your mouth fabulous whether you... More

I love their smoked salmon salad, smoked chicken salad, bread pudding, and turkey pot pie (bought a whole one and baked at home. Their bacon is lean, thick and delicious. They have various stocks available for purchase, also. I did not like the "Sweety Drops."

Reading other reviews, we couldn't wait to eat here. A little disappointed in the amount or portion sizes to the prices and the food wasn't any different then a normal cafe.

The food was so delicious and the service was great! The owner took the time to help us as well and discuss their meat selection, as well as some tips for their seasonings. Everything smelled amazing! Also it was very clean and organized. Wish we lived there in Lincoln!

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😍😍😍😍😁
