"Whatza Runza? A Runza sandwich is homemade dough, stuffed full of ground beef, cabbage, onions and spices, and then baked fresh and served hot." So says the sign on the counter.

There were two Runza versions on the menu: traditional and mushroom & swiss. We ordered one of each, as well as a side order called "Frings", an inspired name for an inspired concept: a mixture of French fries and onion rings.

The Runzas themselves were definitely miles away from anything I have had at a fast food restaurant. The bread is smooth and chewy, kind of like a bagel but not as dense. The fillings are more flavorful than a typical fast food burger -- of course, you can't go wrong with cabbage. Two thumbs up on the Runzas.

The onion rings were unusual: clothed in a thick crispy cornmeal batter, they were not greasy at all, and in fact seemed to lack salt as well. The lack of seasoning was their downfall, because otherwise they would have been very good. The fries were typical fast food fries. John rated his chili as "fine", but not as good as Wendy's chili.

Our final verdict was that we wish Runzas were more widespread, because we would like to have a Runza option when faced with the horror of a fast food meal. I hope you Nebraskans appreciate what you have there.
