Mahogany), at least in a socio-economic sort of way. What do I mean by this? Well, there is no sign of white table cloths, a pricey al a carte menu, a squad of wait staff constantly buzzing around you, or an implied dress code. While all of these aspects are nice at a high dollar fine dining establishment, they are not always necessary for a more economical restaurant like the Millard Roadhouse. At the Millard Roadhouse you will find high quality service and food that will leave you completely satisfied, all on a different level.
Basically, the Millard Roadhouse provides excellent service and large amounts of really good home-style food that is extremely affordable. And, the best part about it you feel comfortable being there. The place is unassuming. The wood-paneled walls, the red and white checkered table cloths, and the down-to-earth wait staff remind me of the small town atmosphere I remember as a kid growing up in somewhat rural Nebraska. For instance, if you’re anything like me, when you walk out of the Millard Roadhouse you might have to remind yourself that you are in Omaha.
There is nothing fancy about their food, except that it tastes good. Their self-proclaimed “claim to fame” is their chicken. I have had their chicken gizzard dinner, and I practically licked my plate clean. I’m assuming the delicious breading on my gizzards is the same as you would get on a normal three piece dinner. At least I hope so, because the next time I go to the Millard Roadhouse I am getting a chicken dinner for sure. The last time I visited the Roadhouse I ordered the prime rib. Even though the prime rib was quite tasty, I am still kicking myself for not getting a chicken dinner.
I have taken several members of my family to Millard Roadhouse, and they have all enjoyed themselves immensely. I have gotten a thumbs-up from them all on everything from burgers, patty melts, and salads. My father-in-law especially relished the chance to have liver and onions. Apparently, not too many places serve this dish in Omaha. I did not ask him how he liked it but the pristinely clean plate I spied when we were leaving said it all (maybe he licked it clean?).
Each time I have been to the Millard Roadhouse, our lone server has been awesome. He or she has provided all the service that most places use a team of servers to acheive. These red T-shirt clad warriors constantly refill your drinks, are very friendly, and make sure you are satisfied. You definitely will feel obligated to tip them generously.
Overall, the Millard Roadhouse is a great place to eat. They treat you very well. They give you plenty to eat at an affordable rate. And best of all, you will experience a comfy small-town environment in the middle of Omaha.
