Reviewed yesterday NEW

I ate at Shirley's last week. I had the noon special which was pork roast, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy with green beans. It filled the plate and there was plenty for two people! The taste was VERY good and the wait staff was very nice. I will certainly be going here again!

this is one of the best breakfasts in the omaha area, detour worthy. fist class service from a very friendly, helpful staff. food comes hot and well prepared in a reasonable time considering that the diner is very busy. nice little corner to keep the kids busy while waiting to eat or letting parents finish their plates.

I took my sons here for a Friday morning breakfast and it was delicious. It's a cute little diner. It was busy on a Friday morning. We had to wait a bit for a table. The service was great. The food was delicious as well. My boys both got a meal for $5.99 that included two pancakes, eggs, bacon and... More

I understand that this is a NEW Location... Presumably to provide more seating, and space.... Well.... Time to Move Again. We were here on a weekday lunch and place was full.... tables DO get "turned over" pretty fast, so those waiting, didn't appear to have to wait long. Service is fast-paced...appropriately so...but not harried or hurried. Everything we received looked... More

We had lunch at one of our favorite restaurants today. Shirley's at 138th and R Plaza. I always get their chicken fried steak meal. Depending on the day it's green beans or corn - all for only $9.99. I prefer crispy hash browns vs mashed potatoes. It's the best fried steak in Omaha. Staff and owners are always very friendly.... More

New location just a few yards away provides the same great tasting comfort food but in a much brighter location. The chicken fried steak smothered in gravy - heaven.

Wow, wow, wow! The people who run this diner, and their staff are ON POINT. Impeccable service (quick, accurate, friendly), fun atmosphere and fantastic food. Small place, but they are moving across the parking lot to a larger place (old Pizza Hut building) shortly. We had a party of EIGHT, but they were able to seat us quickly (about 5... More
