Here are three scenarios:

1) You’ve just rolled out of bed after hitting the ‘snooze’ button on your alarm one too many times. You’re late for work for the third time this week, and your stomach is empty.

2) Lunch plans are on you. All your friends are counting on you to decide where you’re going to go eat, to book the table, and to have a schedule. (If combined with #1, you’re in trouble).

3) You finally got a babysitter for the kids and it’s date night. Your other half wants to go somewhere you’ve never been before, but they won’t decide as to where.

These are all scenarios that can be fixed by having restaurants, coffee houses, and diners close by and having a handy list as your guide.

Bennington residents, you’re in luck. We’ve picked out some of the highest rated restaurants in your area. We Yelped so you don’t have to!

🌮 Where should I pick up some lunch?

Dos De Oros aka “The Taco Truck” | Omaha and surrounding area

To live like a Bennington local, loving Omaha’s premier taco truck service is the best-rated restaurant around. Believe it or not, this food truck has everything you could want for lunch or dinner, and sometimes, it’s the smaller, time-tested establishments that earn the best, most deserving of accolades. Dos De Oros serves up fresh veggies and deliciously seasoned meats and is the go-to place for traditional, genuine Mexican food in the whole county!

Recommended indulgence: Their tacos are great, but try a burrito!

Evolve Paleo Chef | 15514 Spaulding Plz, Omaha, NE 68116

Head downtown again into Omaha for the healthiest place for juices and food around. Evolve Paleo Chef began as a meal-preparation business around the idea of a Paleolithic diet. The Paleo diet is, in some ways, similar to other lower carb options, but has proven to be more sustainable in the long run and has been known to help symptoms of various stomach ailments. Paleo has vastly improved the quality of many lives, why can’t yours be one?

Recommended indulgence: Pop in for a delicious green smoothie to enliven your day.
