Top Spots For Omaha Steak
Omaha has a long history with beef, specifically steak. In the 1940’s a company called “Omaha Steaks” partnered up with Union Pacific Railroad to serve Omaha Steaks on their train cars in Omaha, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. What makes these steaks special is the length of time they’re aged for and the flash freezing process used to preserve the peak moment when they are juiciest, most tender and most flavorful. Today, Omaha Steaks is distributed across the country by mail but what better place to experience it than in its homeland.
