You are probably wondering what the heck a Tastee sandwich is. Ask anyone who grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Tastee Inn & Out is a restaurant located just off of 48th & Holdrege. The place hasn’t changed much since opening their doors in 1948. The drive thru window is on the passenger’s side of the car, orders are written down by hand and sent through a tube into the kitchen, and the trays of food come out on a conveyor belt from the kitchen. This one-of-a-kind restaurant created the legendary Tastee sandwich, loose hamburger served on a bun with mustard and a pickle. Aside from this sandwich, Tastee Inn & Out has wonderful onion chips and milkshakes for a “well-balanced” meal. I highly recommend trying Tastee Inn & Out the next time you are in Lincoln.
