If you ever say you're going to Offutt AFB, the first thing any Omaha native blurts out is "HAVE YOU HAD STELLA'S?" Solid burgers served up with tasty fries. Beware though - the burgers are served wrapped in paper, so leave your snobby friends at the door. Very family-oriented atmosphere.

I have lived in Bellevue all my life and remember going to the "old" Stellas on Saturdays after yard work. The wait was usually long after ordering but always so worth it, the bathrooms more like a gas station. Fast forward and the only thing has changed is the super deluxe and upgraded bathrooms and the way improved, fast food service. In fact there are many more improvements like orings, sweet pot fries, expanded menu but I always just get the hamburger w/grilled onions. The food is consistently delicious and thats the reason I keep coming back after 50+ years!

My husband and I have traveled a great deal all over the world and the United States. Our favorite quick lunch or supper has always been a hamburger and we've enjoyed a vast variety of them in many places. Stella's is, without doubt and without equivocation, the best of all. Love the atmosphere, too -- it's so Midwest American! Whereever you are, it's worth your time and effort to travel to Nebraska to experience Stella's!

Stella's has repeatedly been voted the BEST burger in Nebraska. In a state known for beef, that is saying something. Stella's lives up to the hype! This is the best burger you will ever eat. The atmosphere is VERY casual with everything served on a napkin. Plan on showing up early for lunch if you want to get in or you are going to wait. This place is off the beaten path, but well worth the trip down to Bellevue. Stella's is close to the Air Force base, so there are always lots of our nations finest to contend with for seats.

Stella's has been a Bellevue staple for a very long time. I remember going as a teen. I've continued to go even though my teens are long gone. Many changes there in the last 20 years that's for sure. The food, however has remained good throughout the years and changes. Made to order so it's always hot and fresh. Stellas is larger than it used to be but still does not seat many. When the parking lot is overflowing (often) it's a warning that you will have a wait. It will be worth it when you get in. Waitstaff is normally engaging and friendly, you won't be rushed out the door either. Food always has been and remains very good. My sons don't live here anymore, but when they visit, Stellas is usually at the top of their list to visit.

Excellent burgers. Lovely, friendly staff. The bar is welcoming with so much character. We sat at a booth and felt at home among what we assumed were local friends enjoying catching up with each other over good food.

Go and read Stella’s cooking secret by the menu. Then you will know why you are getting the hamburger that has made this place famous for so many years! I have eaten here for 50 years and will not stop now. Onion rings are also great!

If you enjoy a great burger that you design... Stella’s is the place! An iconic restaurant in Omaha, you really shouldn’t miss it. Great friendly service, have a brew and enjoy the atmosphere of Stella’s warm hospitality. I recommend the onion rings and sweet potatoes fries combo. Definitely family friendly and go early on busy days, no reservations, but I have not waited more than a few minutes for a table. Build your own burger and enjoy!

Stella’s has a great local atmosphere. The burgers were delicious! And those sweet potato waffle fries, can’t say enough about them. The staff is so friendly and fast. I would definitely go back if I lived closer than an 8 hour drive. Highly recommend!

I'm from a large east coast city, and found Stella's to be fantastic. The burger was excellent, fries were decent, the staff was exactly as you might imagine in a down-home place. And the price was what you might expect as well. But most of all, the vibe was such a refreshing departure from the corporatized, matching-uniform burger chain store (Red Robin, et cet). So glad I went.

Super happy with my meal. I got a triple not realizing that a triple meant almost 3 pounds of meat. The burgers were incredibly thick, well cooked and spiced it just right. if you're in for looking for a good burger place, this is the place to go. I would highly advise going here again.

Great for lunch on a work schedule. Sometimes good service, and a quality burger are just what you need and this is the place for that.

Bellevue is my hometown and I can remember going to Stella's as a kid and being greeted by Stella herself with a big smile, hello, and sometimes even a hug. My family has remained loyal customers and several in my family actually have been going there one day every week for years. Unfortunately, that was then....and definitely not now. My daughter from Ohio and two of my grandkids just visited as she does every year. And, as we do when she visits, we invited the local family to join us at Stella's to visit with the out-of-towners. We invited the family and 14 of us accepted. I intentionally told everyone to show up no later than 4:45PM because the restaurant doesn't take reservations and gets busy quickly. I intentionally arrived with 5 of us early at 4:15PM to give the staff a heads up that we were coming so they could prep and to improve our chance of having tables together....trying to be helpful. That effort was greeted with rudeness and we were told in no uncertain terms that we could not sit down until our entire party had arrived. I explained the situation and that the 5 of us simply wanted to sit at a table for 6 in the back room while we waited and order some drinks and apps. But, instead, we were told we had to wait OUTSIDE in 90+ degree heat while the restaurant wasn't even 25% full...lots of empty tables! To make matters worse, as I was pleading with the staff to work with us on this, another couple came in and they were immediately seated AT A TABLE FOR SIX!!! But, somehow the 5 of us couldn't sit at a table for 6 and begin ordering while the rest of us arrived (which they did on time because we know Stella's and know how busy it can get). Obviously, I was not happy given my lifetime of patronage to this place...but it only gets better. Once we all arrived and were permitted to enter the restaurant and be seated, the wait staff (who need serious customer service training) attempted to seat all 14 of us at two tables for 6! Seriously, after making us wait outside for 15 minutes in the heat while allowing other small parties to be seated at large tables they tried to squeeze 14 of us into a space intended for 12....and there were still empty tables in the restaurant! What kind of crap is that!?! I refused and several of us expanded to a third table and were treated poorly by the waitress as a result because we had not followed her directions. The final pisser that prompted this review came a couple of days later when my sister calls to tell me that the Manager/Owner (Pam) WHO WAS NOT PRESENT FOR ANY OF THIS had called her to complain about us being rude! For someone that only had half the story and knew we are longtime loyal customers...I found THIS behavior to be unprofessional, rude, and regrettable. If you have a problem with me...talk to me...don't hide behind my sister! I have remained loyal to a fault even as the food at Stella's has been steadily deteriorating from its hey days for sometime now. Well, that has come to an end. I am done and do not plan to return and expect most/all of my family feels the same. There are too many other better burger joints in the area and ALL of them know how to treat their customers better!
