On the third day of our Triple D adventure, we decided to go to Amato's. It's open for breakfast and lunch diner. When we arrived all the parking lot was full so we pulled around to the back. Sam Amato had just pulled from a grocery run. He told us it was too hot to walk around the front just go in through the back door. We got a behind the scenes glimpse of their kitchen.
The place definitely has an old style diner feel to it. It was decorated with mementos from Guy Fieri's visit including photos and signed menus.
We asked our waitress what did Guy have when they filmed the Triple D episode. She replied the Tri-Berry Ricotta Cheese pancakes and their homemade Italian sausage. This was the episode where Guy made sausage for the first time. We had to try them...In a word...Awesome!!! You could tell the sausage was fresh and homemade. The pancakes look odd with three different berries mixed into them. However, they were superb.
The thing that made the visit special were the Amato's. They both spun stories about Guy's visit. They were warm and personable. Their love for their craft came through. If you're ever looking for a great breakfast place in Omaha, try Amato's.
This was our last stop on our Triple D adventure. We were going to try one more...but we couldn't locate it with our directions. Guess we need to come into the 21st century and get a smart phone...but that will be another story.
