Shirley’s Diner, Omaha, NE

Shirley's Diner on Urbanspoon

I have had several recommendations for Shirley’s, and yesterday afternoon I had the opportunity to give it a try.

From the outside, the place is nothing to look at; just a door in a strip shopping center. Once through the atrium, it lights up, and you are surrounded by photos and memorabilia for various Hollywood stars. My table was a shrine to Marilyn Monroe, lots of nice photos of her.

The house specialty is chicken fried steak. What else could I do? The CFS was fork tender throughout, clearly hand breaded. The meat was a little thin, and was not jus bursting with flavor, but it was pretty good. The gravy was excellent, with pieces of sausage.

The meal came with nice cut green beans, and very good mashers (nothing dehydrated there).

The iced tea was good and kept refilled, and service was excellent. My check was $12.37, and I would gladly go to Shirley’s again.
