pop-we Dinner Club Reviews Black Oak Grill Omaha

Black Oak Grill Omaha.
This outing population-we™ (pop-we) foodies traveled to Midtown Crossing at Turner Park for dinner club. Becky wanted to share this recent find with the club; since, she frequented this restaurant with her new foodie gig as a Dishcrawl Omaha Ambassador. So, her pick Black Oak Grill Omaha located in the up and coming Midtown Crossing neighborhood (220 S. 31st Ave.) in Omaha, NE. Black Oak Grill touts that they're celebrating the great American tradition with its roots in a broad range of urban grills, neighborhood cafes, boulevard bistros and corner taverns. They have two locations; the second is in Branson, Mo.

Something unique about Black Oak Grill's Midtown Crossing location is there are two entrances. Off of the parking garage entrance you head down a staircase where you really notice the openness of the grill. Off of the Dodge Court entrance to the left you're greeted by the hostess stand. Walking to our reserved table we notice the large bar to the left with mounted horses adorned at the top. At our table, we will dine next to a huge window, which offers us foodies with sweeping views of Midtown Crossing.

The menu is an interesting combination of appetizers, sandwiches and main event entrees like Wohlner's steaks, ribs and pasta dishes. I decided on the Pulled Pork Sandwich which is BBQ pulled pork, house pickled jalapeños, and apple jicama slaw on brioche bun. I ordered onion rings instead of the fries and the up charge was pricey for my taste.

Becky's choice for dinner was a Turkey Burger on brioche bun as well as Sweet Potato Fries. She said, "it didn't disappoint!" She went on to say, "unlike a lot of places in town Black Oak's Turkey Burger has more of a Hamburger taste. It may be the tastiest Turkey Burger in town!" She will order it again. This month we had four birthdays to celebrate and were all treated to Mini Kahlua Ding Dong Cakes minus the Kahlua. Yum!

After compiling the surveys from the other pop-we Dinner Club foodies the club scores Black Oak Grill a 3.8 star average on a scale of 1-5.
