Kearney has no shortage of delicious unique dining choices. We don't get to Kearney very often, so, unless we're just making a stop along I-80 for a quick lunch, we try to make it a point to go downtown and choose a local, independent option.
I'd heard about Trattoria Flippin Sweet Pizza before from friends who raved about it, and I knew they they are the only Nebraska pizzeria selected as one of the top 27 pizzerias in the Midwest by Midwest Living Magazine. When we had the chance, we had to try it - we weren't disappointed!
Flippin Sweet is in a converted service station right on the historic Lincoln Highway (Highway 30), near the downtown. They have added some great decor and made it into a truly unique eatery. The staff greets you as soon as you hit the door, giving instructions to fill out the order sheet.
We enjoyed the Goodfella and the Mookie, both in 10" pizzas, and let me tell you, they are delicious! As we were finishing up, some local regulars arrived and perused the menu, before ordering their "usual". The server didn't even have to ask what it was - it's that kind of place.
If you can't get to their location, they do have a food truck, and they do cater. Any way you can experience Flippin Sweet, I recommend it. You won't be disappointed.
