Omaha has dozens of good places to eat, but these are simply special

OMAHA, Nebraska — There is no way to make everyone happy.

Whether you’re going out for lunch with family, friends, or coworkers, it’s nearly impossible to locate a restaurant that fulfills everyone’s wants and desires. Does the restaurant welcome children? Do they provide vegan options? And what is one to do when one companion desires a cheeseburger while another is managing their weight?

It’s as if you require a restaurant that functions as five or six restaurants in one.
