Recommended if you are looking for VEGAN food. They had a great vegan burger. The person who took our order was SO patient and helpful, answering all of our questions about the menu. Another staff member gave us recommendations for places to go downtown. Very friendly!

Visited Honest Abe's close to campus on recent University of Nebraska visit with my son. About a 5 minute walk from the Van Brunt visitor center. Went at about 4.30 on Friday afternoon so it wasn't very busy yet. We both ordered the "Greatest Burger Ever". The burgers were cooked perfectly and the single patty filled us up plenty. Also...

This is not your typical burger joint. You'll find burgers here you've never heard of before and I think they switch up the menu quarterly. These are very good burgers! You won't be disappointed.

I gave this 4 out of possible 5 stars because it was good, especially the Parmesan Garlic fries and maybe one of the best chocolate Malts I have had 5 Guys burgers are better though While this was an enjoyable meal it is most certainly NOT the #2 place to eat in Lincoln

Their veggie patty is excellent. I had the rotating presto-chango and it was fantastic. Also their double Dutch chocolate shake is the bomb. If I lived here I would eat at this location every day! Polite and fast service. Arrived at 6 with hardly any line on a Wednesday.

I have heard a lot about Honest Abes and decided to try it out with my son. Very relaxed and a place to go with friends or family. I had a hamburger that tasted a lot like a Monte Cristo and the fries were nit your typical French fries but softer. I will go back and maybe try one of... More

The place has a great burger and that's that. I enjoyed an all American Burger with freedom fries and a cold beer. It just don't get any better.

This is one of the rare finds that makes you wish you lived here rather than just visiting. I had the 1809 burger and the parm truffle fries. I was very impressed. My family enjoyed other burgers and were quite pleased too. Order at the counter, wide open seating and an outdoor covered seating area. Overall, great burgers!

I was in town visiting my brother and he raved about this place so we tried it and overall it was pretty amazing food. The staff was very friendly and very helpful too as I have food... More
