Kearney just happened to be our overnight stopping point for a fall road trip. Being couple of seniors, we do not push ourselves too hard and besides, we love hitting our "pause" button ... cruise controlled interstate travel just doesn't do it for us! We had a museum & an art gallery on the agenda for next morning because the last leg of the trip was about 6 hours. At the art gallery (MONA, 'downtown' Kearney), which is small but had an interesting limited exhibit on women and a photo exhibit, both interesting, we asked student-looking young people where was a good place to eat lunch. They had no opinion but referred us to their youthful professor coming behind them. He recommended this restaurant. He did say it was not exactly easy to find, and that's true. You need a GPS. We did not use ours because he offered to be a 'pilot car' for us and we followed. The restaurant is close to the UNK campus. He had to eat lunch anyway, so, when asked to join us, he did! So, sometimes, I am not sure the food was as good as it was because the company was wonderful, or the food is wonderful and just enhanced the company! Other reviews that comment on possibly slow service can be true. We had to wait but not that long and it gave all of us additional time to talk about art & education & get some bios on one another. Wait is worth it. The food is excellent. Just excellent! We did not get out of Kearney until nearly 2pm! But it was a "pause" highlight & we plan on stopping any time we are in Kearney, Nebraska. State welcome sign should probably say HOME OF SUWANNEE THAI Restaurant. Don't forget to visit the Great Platte River Museum and if into art, check out the gallery. And stay for lunch or dinner at Suwannee Restaurant. We always strike "gold" of restaurants by asking locals! We struck gold in meeting a very nice UNK art instructor! This is traveling at its best!
