restaurant recommendations near Council Bluffs

Looking for a good non-chain restaurant an easy drive from C.B. for dinner Friday 5/4. Prefer something with lighter options; not a steakhouse, not a casino. Want to avoid the hordes eating before the BRK annual meeting . Suggestions?

You might want to check the Council Bluffs forum for a lot of things on that side of the river - how about the ever popular Dixie Quicks in Council Bluffs thats real popular, the food tends toward southern and southwest USA foods, very casual.

Since the meeting is downtown, maybe those places will be full of the hordes but that's also where your best options would be ( DT / Old Market )for the type of food you are looking for. The places in midtown crossing might be a good choice but that area is not too far west of downtown and since its new and trendy might have a lot of traffic from people avoiding DT.

Bohemian Cafe on 13th street ? Hmmm not sure thats all ' lighter fare' but it is locally owned and not a chain, convenient to downtown - straight up 13th street - you can check out their menu online.

West Omaha is probably your best bet but it appears thats not an option for you.

Hope you have a fun trip.

You don't need to go to West Omaha for great food! I'm not very familiar with Council Bluffs aside from the Lake Manawa area. Lake Manawa is in the southern part of CB. There are several chain restaurants there, though I know that's not what you are looking for. As grayhorse said, there are lots of options in the Old Market, which is just over the river from CB and should be easy for you to access. I LOVE Roja (Mexican). If you like sushi, Blue is popular. A quick search will yield lots of results! Have fun!
