JoJo's Diner West
Oh boy! Omaha, if you weren’t aware, Jojos Diner – West located at 13110 birch drive ste 100, Omaha, NE opened on 4/5/22. My wife and I had the pleasure of attending their soft opening and we experienced great flavors!
My wife was loving the pot stickers which were served with tiny chips, and large thick cut bacon. The caramelized exterior of the bacon was so good.
Brussel sprouts also were served with bacon and sliced almonds. The bacon again, was lovely and the sprouts were cooked well. They just could have used a touch more of salt and that would have made them perfect!
The Chix sandwich is their take on the Nashville Hot Chicken, and boy was it hot!!! A little too hot for my liking, but there were definitely good things going on. It was crispy, tender and the greens that were spread on top were tasty! I could have eaten a bowl of them easily.
My wife ordered a pasta dish (forgive me for forgetting the name) that they made specially without dairy. Yes, they can make that happen! I talked to the kitchen staff, and it was a challenge, but they rocked it. She really liked it. When she gave me a taste, the spices were noticeable and well represented. Good stuff!
They have flatbreads as well! I went with the steak; something different for me. It came with a pesto, garlic, balsamic and had a freshness to it. I was happy to see the wonderful color of the slices of steak. Beautiful!
When I walked in, I was surprised to see a couple of familiar faces. S/O to IT Guy from Yum Omaha who I’ve met multiple times and Stacy Winters from Omaha Food Lovers. That was my first time meeting him in person (about time that happened).
To the staff, thank you for being so helpful. We had a nice time; the food was great, and you guys took care of us! I hope the week goes as smoothly as possible for you.
As this is a soft opening, I’m not going to give an official rating.
