A Nebraskan epicurean delight (and it really is good) is the Runza sandwich. Runza is a Nebraska restaurant chain featuring a Russian-inspired sandwich of the same name made of ground beef, cabbage, onions, spices, stuffed in dough and then baked. Runza also serves Polish dogs, chili, burgers and other fast food. A story appeared in the Lincoln Journal Star the day after our Runza visit; it said there are 82 Runza stores with 76 in Nebraska. A new store recently opened in Mission, Kansas near Kansas City (the second biggest Cornhusker enclave outside of Nebraska other than the Denver metro area, said the article). The restaurant was so busy the police had to cut off the drive through line because it interfered with neighborhood traffic.
