Stauffer's has great food at a great price in a nice environment. I especially recommend the hot beef sandwich--the half order is great sized. Any type of merengue pie is outstanding--don't leave without a piece of pie.

Always enjoy dining here, no matter what time of the day. They are always busy and seems to be a local favorite. Never been disappointed in any of the menu items.

We eat here about twice a month. The place is family owned and the food is always good. The homemade pies are the best. Cant go wrong eating a good breakfast here

Stauffers is a very good place for family and comfort food. I had the ham dinner with coconut pie afterwards.

First, there's the pie. Nothing else matters past that. The strawberry rhubarb crumb is the very best. My kids love the peanut butter banana. Then there is the food. I LOVE the roast beef melt. Oh, and the beef and noodles, and the breakfast stuff... who am I kidding, it's all fantastic!

We love pies - mother in law is world's best, but now we are consigned to seeking out the best in other venues. So we put this place on our to do list for our 36 hour visit to Lincoln, and we were sorely disappointed. We first looked at the variety of pies and were duly impressed with the choices... More

They've got daily breakfast specials and are quite large. It fills you up fairly quickly. Get there early for breakfast because I once ordered their chicken fried steak and eggs around the noon hour and they ran out of white gravy sauce. Wasn't a fan of the brown gravy but it was still edible. Make sure to save room for... More

My mother ordered a gluten-free pumpkin pie for me (and gave me the whole pie!) since I am the only person in our family who eats GF. She has ordered from other suppliers, but this time she ordered from Stauffer's. I was very favorably impressed!! The pastry was light and delicious (not heavy or soggy) and the filling was the...
