Restaurants and bars right around TD Ameritrade
If you’re leaving TD Ameritrade Park after a game, there’s going to be a variety of restaurants and bars within walking distance. Blatt Beer and Table, Rocco’s Pizza and Cantina, the Old Mattress Factory (and several others) are all right there and easy to get to as you leave the game.
Heck, the Old Market isn’t far at all either and you’ll be able to walk around and find just about anything you could want to eat or drink there.
But those aren’t the only restaurants and bars that you should check out while you’re in town.
Check out some great, local restaurants that fly under the radar
Just 10 minutes away from TD Ameritrade, you’ll find La Salvadoreña, a phenomenal local restaurant serving Salvadoran, Honduran, and Mexican food. Personally, I’d recommend the beef and cheese pupusas, but it’s hard to go wrong with anything on the menu.
Not too far from La Salvadoreña is Smoking Jay’s Barbecue. The service is warm and friendly and the honey fried cornbread is arguably the best dessert that I’ve ever had in my life. It’s hard to describe what exactly honey fried cornbread is, so please trust me when I say that you have to check it out.
If you’re in the mood for pizza and are looking to get it to go, hit up Orsi’s Italian Bakery & Pizzeria. This place won’t count as “flying under the radar” for locals, as a vast multitude of my coworkers recommended that I check it out as soon as I moved to Omaha, but many tourists may miss it if they aren’t made aware of it. The menu is straightforward, the pizza is remarkable, and while you’re there, check out the deli counter.
Sports bars around town to hit up
If you’re not staying right next to TD Ameritrade and are looking for a sports bar near your hotel to watch a game or two, DJ’s Dugout and The Good Life both have multiple locations throughout Omaha. For those staying out in west Omaha, the Union Pizzeria and Sports Bar is a pretty great option as well, but it’s a slight hike for folks staying closer to downtown to get there.
