We keep moving on with the 4th and 13th seeds in the National Chain bracket of the Corn Nation Food Bracket Tournament. The results and live votes are still here for your convienece.

VILLAGE INN

Five locations in Lincoln.

The one on South 27th has a Yelp rating of 3.5 stars out of 5.

A Yelp review:

Great 'diner style' food that serves breakfast from open to close.  Kids eat free on Monday and Tuesday, which is always a plus and they have a huge selection of breakfast items.  Plus, they have lunch and dinner items as well like burgers and sandwiches, but I rarely get those.  I mostly just go for the traditional breakfast fair which actually I love to eat for dinner!  The kids love it, and its easy to see why, they have something for everyone.

Don't forget about Free slice of Pie Wednesday, which is awesome.

On that note, their pie is not the best I have had, but not the worst.  Some are better then others.  Personally, I love a old fashioned apple pie, or their French silk.   Both tasty options.

PANDA EXPRESS

Two locations in Lincoln.

The one in Gateway Mall has a Yelp rating of 4 stars out of 5.

A Yelp review:

I am not fond of Chinese. I am really not fond of Panda Express as I grew up in Los Angeles and out there I had several episodes of Panda Express Induced food poisoning. HOWEVER.......

I really like this location, they are clean friendly and the food is surprisingly fresh. I was talked into eating it about 6 months ago and it's now my favorite "food court" restaurant in the mall. I am really liking a lot of the new dishes they are introducing like the Treasure Chest Shrimp...I think that's what it was called...among others. When I go to the mall with the family it's usually unanimous that we all eat Panda Express instead of us all getting different things....if the picky eaters like it too, then it's probably good.
