  CITY BLESSED WITH FINE DINING
Nebraska City has always been blessed with some great dining places..even way back in the late 40's and early "50's..Ill try to remember the top 15-20 that i can remember..a lot of these i remember since i delivered the News-Press to most of these.ALL are gone now.
     ULBRICKS CAFE , south of the overhead on 11th st..Mary was known near and far for her pan fried chicken and creamed vegetables.  Mary and her granddaughter were active in the e cafe, serving as den mothers for my Cub Scout Troop..Often hiring those boys to work there..She also fed us and our families for many years..She worked very hard for the chamber as well..Charlene opened a cafe around Omaha for a few year before retiring
DINTY MOORES..MORE OF A BAR..south 8th st..across fro the Nwss-Press...BUT THEIR SANDWICHES COULDNT BE BEAT..for many years the guys at the News-Press regularly are there..A LOT OF TIME I WOULD TAKE THEir ODER AND GO GET ONE OF THEIR THREE GREAT SANDWICHES...MANY SATURDAY LATE  NIGHT PRINTS..WE WOULD EAT UNDER THE PRESS WHERE NO ONE COULD SEE US FROM OUTSIDE JUST BEFORE WE WENT TO PRESS
       AMERICAN LEGION CLUB..served many a fine meal there, especially Saturday night specials
       STEINHART PARK LODGE..the old building was mainly for parties etc..but had Sunday meals
     RIVER ROAD CAFE..--there has always been the cafe there sever since i can remember under many different owners
