Like Cooperstown for baseball players or Cleveland for aging rockers, this page is the home of our most celebrated Runzatics®. The brave. The proud. The slightly-offbeat.

I had my first Runza at the drive inn on Pioneers drive in 1960. Came to Lincoln with college friends to see a Husker football game. Runzas were better than the game. I have been loving them ever since.
I lived a block away from Runza in Ralston back in the early 1970's. We've been in south central Kansas for 37 years now, but whenever we visit family in Nebraska we stop at Runza in York "going and coming" - doesn't matter how short the trip or time of day, we have a two stop Runza minimum when in Nebraska. Original Runza, fries or rings (or frings) and ice tea. It simply doesn't get any better! Food is ALWAYS fresh, hot, and delicious....unlike the national chains. My family LOVES RUNZA.
My sister-in-law visited from Georgia last summer. As soon as she crossed over into Nebraska she stopped at the first Runza for a large tea because "Runza has thee best tea!" She was here a week and I counted 5 times she visited the Runza in our town. Of course, my family agrees with her and loves all the menu items, we're just lucky we don't have to drive across the country to enjoy them. LOL
Nothing brings back childhood memories of my German grammy cooking in the kitchen like an original Runza! Thanks for giving me a piece of home.
Passport to Runza Goodness! I am a frequently traveler outside the United States. While fine cuisine is on offer in places like Paris, Rome and Madrid, there is no substitute for a delicious Runza cheeseburger - fixed "the Runza Way." So Uber drivers who know me have no need to ask my destination upon pick-up at Eppley. They know the Runza drive-thru at 51st and Center beckons!
For prom this year, I made my friends go through the Runza drive thru to let me get some delicious fries. We had already had a fancy dinner, but it wouldn't have been complete without Runza fries! I put them in my clutch and ate them throughout the dance. Best date ever!
