Omaha is an excellent place for foodies to call home, as we have an abundance of eateries serving up a variety of food, like ramen, nachos, burgers, pizza, sushi, tacos, ice cream, and of course, the steak we are known for. In fact, it has been said that Omaha has the most restaurants per capita of any city of comparable size (which is just over 1 million people in the metro area).
With all this cuisine to choose from — and more and more concepts popping up every day — it’s difficult to keep track of it all! That’s where these fellow foodies come in.
These Instagram accounts are focused on sharing the best, tried-and-true dishes and drinks throughout the Omaha area to help their hungry followers find their next meal. Follow these food-focused Instagrammers to stay in the loop about the best eats in Omaha!
