Hullabaloo led reader to Kim’s Country Kitchen

-A +A
Having read the recent comments in the Lincoln News Messenger about Kim's Country Kitchen, I decided to go and determine for myself that the hullabaloo was all about. The first thing I noticed was that Kim's County Kitchen was in a location where another restaurant had closed up shop several years ago. I was happy to see another restaurant there. My wife and I decided to have lunch there and celebrate my birthday. Yes, there were deer, geese and other animals on the walls. But there were also stuffed animals (not real, but toys that I would give my young children or grandchildren to play with), wooden duck decoys and farming implements. In short, I found a rural, rustic atmosphere. I have seen similar motifs in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, the Dakotas, Colorado, etc. I was not offended in any matter. The original writer is entitled to her opinions and should avoid Kim's and eat elsewhere. I would suggest that she also avoid most restaurants in Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, the Dakotas, Colorado, New Mexico, Alaska and most western Canada because that is the way of life there (outdoor, rustic). I would also suggest that she consider moving from Lincoln to San Francisco or another large city so she will not be subjected to this type of rustic atmosphere and can choose something more urbane. I moved to Lincoln eight years ago from San Jose, away from the traffic, away from the hustle and bustle, away from the whiners and complainers. I love it here. I have made many new friends and I am enriched by the beauty and love I have found in Lincoln. I intend to live out my life here. To anybody who wishes good quality food at a reasonable price, try Kim's Country Kitchen. Don't take my word for it. See for yourself. Personally, my wife and I intend to return to Kim's often in the future. They are only open for breakfast and lunch, not dinner, so a good meal won't cost you an arm and a leg. Thank you for airing the letters about Kim's Country Kitchen and letting us know about another great eating place in Lincoln. We are indebted to you for your excellence in reporting local news.
