When you hear “Omaha” you think steak. (Admit it, your mouth starts to water just thinking about the sizzle of the perfect cut.) For years, the great steak debate has kept visitors and locals discussing where to find the best Omaha steak. For this month’s Now Serving Omaha webisode, we’ll take you inside one of the top contenders. Piccolo Pete’s has dished up this carnivore favorite for 80 years and continues to be a steak lover’s landmark.
Try the tender New York cut served just the way you like it with a side of mostaccioli. Regulars will suggest the prime rib, covered in a secret rub and cooked for 12 hours. Featured on the Travel Channel’s Food Wars, Piccolo’s is known for its classic Italian steakhouse atmosphere and the famous face you might see at the next table.
This celebrity endorsement comes from local billionaire (and Piccolo regular) Warren Buffett. Buffett has treated celebrity friends Bill Gates, Ben Stein and Alex Rodriguez to this classic Omaha steak experience. The Oracle of Omaha encourages attendees of his annual shareholders meeting to stop in for a root beer float and a classic Omaha steak. Fun fact: Piccolo’s goes through approximately 15 gallons of root beer each year during the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting.
