Lunch at 9 South Chargrill

October 28, 2007 at 7:59pm By: Mr. T Posted in The Lincolnite Blog


Last week we went to the 9 South Chargrill on 9th and South. I ordered the hamburger, which like all the sandwiches comes with a choice of two sides (I ordered onion rings and potato salad - which makes for a very filling and reasonably priced meal for $7-$8). I really enjoyed my burger. Having a really good burger can speak volumes about a restaurant, and the burger at 9 South Chargrill was definitely very, very good.

The burger was so big that it left me with that sluggish, drugged feeling of having a third to a half a pound of red meat in my gut. But it was also on a really nice toasted bun (which didn’t fall apart) with fresh lettuce, tomato, and red onion. Additionally, the burger was very nicely seasoned - enough seasonings that if you don’t like putting on heaps of ketchup or mustard (which I despise) the ground beef patty can stand alone on its own. Somehow, I also managed to have this vanilla malt for dessert as well, which was just as equally satisfying.

Mr. Wilson – who has been there before - had a philly cheese steak. He mumbled something about it being much better meat and less greasy than the cheese steaks he is used to.

I would recommend people try out 9 South Chargill if they are looking for a good lunch. It’s a pretty nice establishment and it was packed with families, office-types, and blue collar workers when we arrived. The kitchen and cook(s) were within open view, the wait staff was courteous and not overbearing, and the overall environment was really pretty classy for a place with a straightforward “Nebraska menu” without being pretentious.

Whoa! We ate there for lunch today!

After a few trips, I’d reccomend the burgers and sandwiches as well. I’ve not been happy with any other entreees though.

Staff has always been great.

I’ll keep going back.

“Mumbled something”, T? If it sounded like a mumble, it was only because your wild dog-like eating habits were drowning me out.

Second visit, second time I came away happy. I’ll be back.
