The Great Chowder Debate

By: Mr. Wilson on August 25, 2011
The Wilsons ate at Outback last night. During our meal we overheard a waitress tell a nearby table that Outback's clam chowder is "the best clam chowder in Lincoln". That's a pretty big claim. Was it correct? I started to object (in my head), but then I realized that I couldn't think of many places that even offer clam chowder. I always associate Grandmother's with clam chowder, but that's only because it was the first place I ever had clam chowder oh-so-many years ago. Then you've got your seafood restaurants like Red Lobster and Beacon Hills; I assume they have clam chowder but I couldn't say for sure if I've ever had it there. In the end, I had a hard time coming up with many examples of clam chowder to even compare Outback to. So what say you, Lincolnites? Who has the best clam chowder in Lincoln?


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

I’d vote for Bison Witches in a nice bread bowl.

I didn’t realize they had clam chowder. I do generally like their soups.

Lazlo’s has some of the best clam chowder I’ve ever eaten.  It’s thick and hearty…great in the winter!  I think they usually only have it on Friday/Saturday nights.

It’s not on their menu as always available, but it comes up pretty often as their soup of the day.
