Whatever you think Omaha’s rap is, re-boot! Lisa’s is a cozy, sun-streaked, groovy happening place to enjoy some great food and an artsy vibe. I went classic because I was starving and had the chicken-fried steak. The cutlet was perfectly crisped, moist and correct; the gravy not gloppy at all. Eggs were over medium and the potatoes hashed to perfection. There was Texas toast to boot. It does not get any better.
