Runzas. A Well-Loved Nebraska Classic.
RUNZAS. BELIEVE ME, YOU’RE GONNA LOVE ’EM. EVEN IF YOU DON’T THINK YOU LIKE CABBAGE.
So what the heck is a runza anyway? Well, it’s a classic buttery-beef, savory cabbage-and-onion-filled sandwich. Beloved. In Nebraska there’s even a fast food chain that bears the name.
Runzas were born here. In fact there are 78 Runza restaurants and of them, only 4 are located outside the state. The very name RUNZA is trademarked but church cookbooks all over the state have recipes for a homemade version. And the Everett family who founded the restaurant doesn’t get too steamed about it.
