Omaha Tap House is a bustling watering hole frequented by the locals for the good vibes and the tasty hamburgers. This gastropub offers 16 different burgers that really pack a punch. The toppings for many of these burgers, although not healthy, may just be the most absurd and delicious add-ons in all of Omaha. Perhaps the most notable choice at the Tap House is the Blueberry Hangover Burger, beef mixed with blueberries and topped with cheesy hash browns, a fried egg, brown sugar bacon and blueberry jalapeño jam, all on grilled blueberry bread! This culinary firework must be tasted to be believed. You can sub in a veggie patty for any of their burger combinations as well.
