Since I got some grief for my Calculated "Best of Omaha" list, I realized this week it's past time I did a dedicated post listing MY Favorite restaurants in town. And for those of you that don't really read all of the context and just skip to the list portion, I'll try to keep the wordiness down to a minimum.

This compilation is just from the past few days. (I like my variety)!
The real question now is where I’ll end up for dinner tonight… because after writing this post it's very hard to decide! As part of this list, I went back through my Yelp list of favorites and started to update many of my Yelp reviews, but after about 10 it was lunchtime and I realized if I updated them all it'd take weeks [or months]. All in all, again, this post ended up being much more time consuming than I planned. But it was a labor of love, so I hope you enjoy. It was harder than I thought to come up with 100, and the order gets a little less 'important' as it goes on.

But for right now, these are my favorites in Omaha, for one reason or another. Generally static, sometimes changing, always delicious.
