While traveling cross country we love stopping in Kearney. Last time here we enjoyed a romantic dinner in one of the cozy booths. But tonight we enjoyed a simple appetizer while watching a little football. Don’t be discouraged by the location. It’s a great place!

My husband and I frequently dine at Sozo. It is a very convenient location and the food, staff and wine selection are excellent. My husband loves the salmon and I usually eat the steak. Both are always cooked to perfection in unique and innovative ways.

This spot came recommended by a local. Lunch here was really tasty. I had the blackened chicken with a side of their creamy mac n cheese topped with bacon. I was not let down. The portion was huge. Ill definitely be back for dinner.
