A must stop for lunch or dinner any trip to Omaha...everything from the staff (knowledgeable, friendly and helpful) to the excellent quality local farm to table food, this is a special place. Excellent burgers, sandwiches and fried chicken! Simple quality, lively atmosphere - cool vibe!

Great place to go for a unique burger along with the duck fries. Doesn’t sound good but they are delicious! Worth going down to check out. Line at lunch time can be a little long so maybe go early or After the lunch crowd.

We were checking out TripAdvisor for lunch ideas and then confirmed with a colleague and they said very good spot. We went there and a very nicely diverse menu. All was tasty and a server gave a nice recommendation. Next time there will go back!!

After returning from a business trip my wife and I decided to try Block 16 based on previous reviews. We were here on a Thursday evening and it was not very crowded. You order at the counter, get a number, and then the staff brings...More
