The Fries and Sides at Stella’s Bar & Grill

On March 10th 2015, FoodMeOmaha and work friends, Ryan and Eric, went to lunch at Stella’s Bar & Grill.

Our objective: Stella’s famous hamburgers. Oh yeah… Stella’s continues to be FoodMeOmaha’s top favorite burger joint in the Omaha area.

No brainer! When you are at Stella’s, enjoy a hamburger! How about the sides?

On this visit, we each ordered a different side and shared them among the table. I tried the onion rings for the first time and tasted the Stella fries and sweet potato waffle fries again.

While the hamburgers are the reason to eat at Stella’s, this post is about the fries and sides at Stella’s Bar & Grill. Here are my rankings of the sides at Stella’s based on recent and past visits:

#4: Stella Fries

These fries don’t do anything for me. I know others who like them. Consistently, they are too soft, greasy, and bland for my taste.

  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 5 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 5 out of 10

9/5/2015 Update: Based on a recent visit, the fries have improved. They are crispier.

#3: Sweet Potato Waffle Fries

The Sweet Potato Waffle Fries has a nice sweet potato taste but I want more salt and texture.

  • FoodMe Value Rating: 7 out of 10

#2: Potato chips – Home-Cooked, Kettle-Style
Stella's Potato Chips

The home-cooked, kettle potato chips are much tastier than the Stella fries and sweet potato waffle fries. The potato crunch is a great complement to the savory burger.

#1: Onion Rings
Stella's Onion Rings

The onion rings are now my preferred side at Stella’s! Ryan and Eric favored this side as well. Yummy, textured breading and sweet cooked onion.

Onion Rings
  • Description: Onion Rings

  • FoodMe YUM Rating: 8.25 out of 10
  • FoodMe Value Rating: 8.25 out of 10

Overall, some sides are good and others are just okay. In the future, I will order the potato chips and/or onion rings with my awesome Stella’s burger masterpiece.
