The Timeless Nebraska Restaurant Everyone Needs To Visit At Least Once
We Nebraskans are really into steak. Like,
really into steak. So when a truly fantastic steakhouse comes around, we throw all our love and support behind it. The Drover is a classic Nebraska steakhouse that’s famous for its whiskey-marinated steaks, and Thrillist recently named it Nebraska’s most iconic restaurant.
The Drover has been serving mouthwatering whiskey-marinated steaks for more than 40 years.
If you've ever visited, you know exactly what makes those steaks so popular. And if you haven't visited, well, it's high time, don't you think?
The restaurant's interior is cozy and surprisingly quiet, given how many people are usually enjoying a meal here.
Maybe it's great sound dampening or maybe everyone is just too busy eating yummy steaks to make much noise. The ambience is always wonderful.
The menu is loaded with just about every cut of steak your little heart could desire.
My own heart flutters a wee bit when I see pictures of these steaks.
This little 8 oz filet with fries looks miniature after that last one, doesn't it?
Don't worry - it's still got as much flavor as a steak twice its size.
The bone-in ribeye with loaded baked potato is so pretty you might just cry.
Before digging in and destroying it, that is.
And the NY strip will have you doing a little happy dance.
For you non-meat lovers out there (you know who you are), The Drover also has a surprisingly good salad bar.
In fact, every entree comes with one trip so you can supplement that big dose of meat with some greens.
There are other non-beef options as well, including some delicious fish dishes.
The halibut is pictured here, but don't miss the salmon - it's divine.
You can go a little lighter (but not much) with a soup like this hearty beef vegetable barley number.
It's perfect for warming you up on those chilly Nebraska nights.
And don't forget the drinks! Never forget the drinks.
This bloody mary is one of the best around, and there's also a full bar for your cocktail needs. The wine list is robust and full of absolutely delicious choices. And, of course, there's a large selection of beers from which to choose.
Is your mouth watering yet? The Drover can be found at 2121 S 73rd St, Omaha, NE 68124. You can view the menu and more information
