pop-we Dinner Club Reviews McKenna's Blues Booze and BBQ

McKenna's Big Easy.
Smell smoke? This month population-we™ (pop-we) foodie Becky decided on barbeque at McKenna’s Blues Booze and BBQ. Located at 7425 Pacific Street in Omaha, NE, Mckenna’s has been serving up great barbeque with a Louisiana roadhouse feel since 1991. They also are connected with the Omaha Blues Society, bringing local and national Blues entertainment to town. So, whether you are having dinner or dropping in for a beverage; McKenna's offers a great venue for national, regional and local Blues acts.

When you first walk in the door you immediately come to the host stand. From there you can see the large bar along the north wall adorned with corrugated metal, which is sectioned off with chain link fencing. The walls are covered with Blues posters of acts throughout the ages, along with some familiar “Blues Brothers'” movie posters. The flooring is nothing fancy--just polished concrete. Also, above the windows there is a large neon sign that reads, “When Adam First Meet Eve…That’s When The Blues Started.”

Tonight I decided to try the Big Easy, which is a smoked brisket sandwich with cheddar, barbeque sauce and onion strings served on a pretzel bun. This sandwich works! The pretzel bun sets it over the top paired with the tangy barbeque sauce. The brisket is slow smoked to be juicy and tasty. Another tasty treat is the Smoked Chicken Nachos. Piled high with chips, chicken, black eye beans served with salsa on the side. In my opinion some of the best nachos in Omaha.

After compiling the surveys from the other foodies the pop-we Dinner Club gives McKenna’s a 4.09 star average on a scale of 1-5.
