“The real deal - and great value breakfast”
Reviewed May 5, 2011

There used to places like this all over America but now they are hard to find. By night it's a bar and by day a diner with a crossover point at five o'clock (somewhere).

We made a detour for the $3.99 breakfast and were mighty glad we did so. Great food, lovely waitress and a reminder that you can still get a good breakfast served on real plates for less money than it costs under the golden arch.

“The Best Food Value in IA or NE”
Reviewed June 13, 2007

Looking for the best food deals in Omaha-Council Bluffs? Once you find The Railway Inn in Council Bluffs you will be happy that you took the time to find them. This local bar and restaurant serves the best hamburger in Iowa or Nebraska at a value anyone can afford.

They start with fresh ground Pure Black Angus Beef and shape a monster 3/4 Pound burger. Then they put it on a great locally homemade bun for us purists. If you like all fix-ins they are happy to slide lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles on the monster. Want Cheese, just ask! Don’t worry about bill as the price for the monster is just an unbelievable $4.95. You’d swear that it’s $20.00 Steak House Burger.

Don’t like Ground Beef, then try out one of the Daily specials, like a homemade pork tenderloin sandwich with 3 sides for just $6.00. We found it to be a great value.

If you are a breakfast person, fill up on the $4.00 all you can eat breakfast special served daily. You get all the eggs, pancakes, toast, French toast, biscuits-n-gravy, and hash browns potatoes that you can eat, for just 4 bucks. Talk about an eye-opener.
