Been here many times. Kind of stopped coming because it's kind of expensive... but all fast food has kind of become ridiculously expensive. The Runza sandwiches are like a cheap version of a traditional German cabbage burger... just much smaller. I like them, but they aren't for everyone. The burgers here are are good, as are the chicken sandwiches and... More

Runza is pretty good. Some of the burgers are a little small. But Runza is a Nebraska staple! Especially in the winter time.

Being from AZ. we had never heard of Runza, however, while in Scotts Bluff, we decided to stop and taste. We had a lovely time, the service was very good and the Runza that we had was quite tasty. It is always nice to experience new foods and when our travels take us to NE, we will stop and enjoy... More

We were in Scottsbluff looking for a quick bite of lunch when we found the Runza downtown. We have never tried a Runza but we were impressed. The food was fresh and tasty. The service was especially good with prompt delivery of our food. We had burgers that looked hand-made, just like home, with all the extras on it. Hope... More

I was a Runza virgin. If you told me cabbage in a burger, I laughed and said no way. Not any more. This burger is great. Cooked perfect and served with outstandingly crispy fries. I ate here because I was told this is a Nebraska thing and now I wish it was a Missouri thing. Good news, you can order... More

The pretzel bun chicken sandwich was great (you should keep those buns). Was going to get a salad but was told you don't serve the Nebraska favorite, Dorothy Lynch, any more...please reverse that decision!!!

We love the new Runza in Scottsbluff. The food is always great and the seating area with sliding windows makes for a different atmosphere. Even though Runza has a drive through, the inside is worth getting out of the car!

After visiting the Scottsbluff Runza several occasions I can say that I have never been disappointed. The food is always good with nice choices and the service is excellent. It is a great stop to share with friends. My favorite time is late evening after sunset to sit in the semi-open seating area and enjoy the taste of outdoors while... More

We were passing through Scottsbluff on an annual motorcycle trip with friends, one of whom is was raised there. We wanted "local culture". We all ordered their signature sandwich the place is named after. It's kind of like a pasty (served in Michigan's Upper Peninsula). It has seasoned ground beef, cheese mixed with cooked cabbage in a doughy bread pocket.... More

This Runza restaurant is not like other fast food places. The interior is very nice. It has an outside seating area with a fireplace. The inside has your usual fast food booths but also a very comfortable meeting area next to the fireplace ( on the inside). the service is quick, friendly and efficient. the food is always fresh and...
