we ate at petrow's over memorial weekend with our friend richard who is 88 years young. he loves the people the waitress who was great and the steaks they both had i had the shrimp and it was delicious. when we visit him again we will be sure to eat there
Petrows is an Omaha classic, and it's great for what it is: Fried comfort food galore with a retro flair that creates a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Don't expect anything gourmet here - you won't find it. But you will enjoy a higher quality of standard fried fair. I had a regular burger that was cooked perfectly and probably about 1/3 pound. Old fashioned tones are found in menu items like liver & onions and yummy shakes. Our waitress was smiling, friendly and on time. Expect to wait for a table during peak hours on weekends. They do serve liquor, but the beer selection is limited to standard domestics. Excellent place for an informal night out for friends and family.
For breakfast,lunch or dinner Petrows is a great clean place to eat. The french toast is out of this world for breakfast, their hamburgers, fries and rings are delicious for lunch and don't forget a piece of creme pie for desert. Home style cooking for those not worried about the carbs. YUM
Petrows is the the next best thing to real homemade food. And the portions you get lets just say you won't leave hungry and if you can squeeze in dessert I really recommened there homemade pies ala mode!
The service was so so as it was quite a bit of time between visits from the waitress. I ordered the Philly with Cheesy Tomato soup. The meat was fatty in the sandwich and the sauteed onions were not sauteed. The soup tasted funny.
I had their pumpkin pie in the past and it was very good. Oh, but not this time. It apparently sat open in the case for too long. The pumpkin was surrounded with a dry film. The whipped topping also has a dry crust to it. I am glad the waitress took the pie off our bill.
One of my sons ordered a footlong hot dog. It was overcooked and shriveled. The bun was dry.
I wish it was smoke free or had a much better ventilation system. We smelled like smoke when we left there.
Petrow's is a casual place with average prices, a wide variety of menu items and great desserts. The atmosphere is 50s/60s style diner. Think Happy Days. Any opportunity you can dine at a truly local place and not a chain, do it!
