Jordan Burroughs' Ultimate Final X - Lincoln Fan Guide

As a self-proclaimed foodie, I was inspired by NC State head assistant coach Adam Hall to create a food guide for Lincoln, Nebraska. I’ve lived in Lincoln for almost 13 years and have eaten at almost every restaurant in town. Here is a list of the best restaurants, bars, breweries and entertainment spots for all ages, meals, and taste buds.
