P.O. Pears is Back. Kind of.

By: Mr. Wilson on August 29, 2008
New owner Monte Froehlich will reopen P.O. Pears this fall as an "event-type business". It will be open on game days and for other special events and private parties. It's not quite what Lincoln's Pears-lovers would like to see, but it's a start. I wonder how much of its original character the restaurant has retained given that most, if not all, of its eclectic collection of decorations was auctioned off. And how 'bout the food, will it be the same? If you're curious, plan to find out for yourself around the time of Nebraska's third football game on September 13.


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

I won’t be able to resist, I’m sure. I hope it’s the same old burgers (why mess with perfection?). The atmosphere may be tough to refine without all the stuff.

I am not much for sports, but I did go there for the music from time to time. I agree that it won’t be the same without all the stuff. I guess we will have to wait and see what comes of it.

The PO Pears burgers will be over on East Campus on Sept 5th if you’re interested.
