You are probably wondering what the heck a Tastee sandwich is. Ask anyone who grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska. It is the best loose meat sandwich around!
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.Delicious Copycat Recipe from the Tastee Inn & Out Resturant. Click To Tweet
