Buzzard Billy's Armadillo Bar & Grillo: "Cajun in Nebraska" Lincoln Restaurant Tip by allenk_007

Lincoln Restaurants: 23 reviews and 28 photos

OK, so it isn't New Orleans, but I enjoyed Buzzard Billy's nonetheless on several occasions. The restaurant is located in the Haymarket area where a number of fine restaurants are located. As the name suggests, the decor/ambience is a combination of bar and grill. A very popular happy hour location, as well as whenever the Huskers have a home game, Buzzard Billy's is open for lunch and dinner with a wide array of cajun/creole appetizers and entrees.

They have a cheap beer special by which I am not only talking inexpensive but, shall we say, bottom shelf brews. Seems to be very popular.

They also have gringo food for those who desire standard fare.

Favorite Dish: Appetizers: Gator Fingers, and Armadillo Eggs
Soups: Seafood Gumbo, or the Grilled Chicken & Andouille Sausage Gumbo
Entrees: Crawfish Fettucine Alfredeaux (or shrimp), the Mardi Gras Pasta, the Cajun Combo, Crawfish Etoufee, and the Voodoo Tuna
