    Thank you for curating! Do you know of Black-owned restaurants in Lincoln?

      Hi there, I shared a list of Lincoln-based Black-owned restaurants on my Instagram story today. I will work on getting them added to this master list.

    Not a food place but Crown Trophy off of 90th is owned by a couple of really great gentlemen! And Covid hit during their busiest time of year :-(.

    Is Bill’s barbecue still in business, by Saratoga school?

    1. Sarah Baker Hansen Avatar

      Yes, it looks like it! We went there during the barbecue food prowl when I was still at the Omaha World-Herald.

    I clicked on the link to Ethiopian Restaurant and it took me to a blank page. Help? This is a restaurant I am having difficulty finding any online info on.

    1. Sarah Baker Hansen Avatar

      Hi there. They don’t seem to have a website but their phone number is 402-345-0265. You could give them a call! Hope that helps.
