      German culture and cuisine have flourished in the state of Nebraska. The popular German American Society, based in Omaha and founded in 1884, has contributed significantly to the appreciation of German food in this part of the country. Legend has it that the Reuben sandwich was created in an Omaha hotel in the 19th-century. With all this rich history, Nebraska is home to a number of excellent German restaurants.

    Gerda's German Restaurant and Bakery

    • The renowned Gerda's German Restaurant and Bakery has been an Omaha eatery since 1972. Gerda's serves authentic German food and pastries in sizable portions and at reasonable prices. Start off with traditional potato cakes with sour cream or apple sauce or pickled herring. Move on to sauerbraten (marinated roast beef) or jagerschnitzel (tender pork loin topped with a creamy burgundy mushroom sauce). After dinner, indulge in treats from the bakery. While the selection changes daily, the Black Forest Cherry Torte appears frequently alongside other specialty desserts.

    Bohemian Cafe

    • A family-run operation since 1924, Bohemian Cafe is a landmark in Omaha. While the restaurant covers other European (namely, Czech and Polish) cuisines, the German dishes are classic. Jaegerschnitzel here is done with veal tenderloin in a wine and mushroom gravy. Try the homemade sauerkraut and the "sweet and sauer" cabbage for a tart side. Then, wrap up the meal with German apple strudel.

    WheatFields Eatery and Bakery

    • WheatFields Eatery and Bakery has three locations in Nebraska, all of which offer German cuisine and catering services. The seemingly endless breakfast and lunch menus include a selection of butter buns, pancakes, crepes, omelets, pancakes, sandwiches, salads, and other mains. For breakfast, try the Reuben butter bun breakfast and for lunch give the Kansas City Beef Noodles a go; they are made with spaetzle egg noodles, pan-sauteed sirloin and topped with roasted red peppers, green onions and in-house gravy. The dinner menu is equally vast, but the Dusseldorf casserole represents classic German cuisine with sausage, bacon, golden potatoes, onions, gruyere and jack cheese. Senior and kids menus are available. The WheatFields bakery, in what seems to be a trend at this restaurant, boasts an enormous array of cakes, cookies, breads, mousses and other sweet treats. In addition to the restaurants and the catering services, WheatFields will mail order food to customers who aren't able to make it in person.
