Christo's Pub

Gary goes to the beautiful old Norwest building and eats lunch (and channels Jack Jackson).

I took a friend of mine out for his birthday lunch on Friday. He chose Christo's Pub (formerly BC's or something like that) at 12th and O streets. This was a very nice looking restaurant and it looks like it may have potential, although the kitchen must be incredibly small.

The poor waitress was forced to serve every table in the place by herself, in addition to serving as the bartender and ringing out paying customers. Words cannot convey how understaffed they were for lunch. Our waitress performed admirably under these conditions but the food was slow to arrive to the table.

I ordered a cheeseburger. The cheese was barely there on this large pre-formed patty that was not at all good and not at all recommended. Bland taste and no seasonings. I requested ketchup and received a condiment cup of it rather than a bottle for the whole table. I asked for mustard but they were out of mustard. The bun was a fresh roll, something that is, unfortunately, a rarity in many Lincoln restuarants.

This is not a place I will return to, which is too bad. It's a great location and a beautiful setting. They just appear to be mismanaged. The people who were there and working were great, there just weren't enough of them. Whoever purchases for the kitchen, go with homemade hamburger patties. The preformed patties are awful, even though they are huge. Give those employees who worked last Friday a raise, they deserve it for not caving in under the pressure they faced.

I would have to agree that this is not a great place. Went there after a movie a few weeks ago and would not return.
