Tom+Chee Omaha Location - Check out Summer Delights and #Giveaway

Disclaimer: I was given free samples and vouchers in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.

Who here loves Shark Tank? I know I do and our family watches regularly. So we were extra-excited when Tom+Chee (as seen on Shark Tank) opened a franchise in Omaha. Hubby and I couldn't wait to try it out and LOVED the food. But, I'll admit, as summer came along, we sort of dwindled on our visits because I think of the food as 'winter only'. After being invited to blog about Tom+Chee and attending the blogger tasting, I've learned how wrong I am! You can't believe how much summer fare is on the menu.

A few important things to note that really impressed me. 

  • There is no microwave, no freezer, and no fryer. Everything is made fresh.
  • KIDS NIGHT - Kids eat for 99 cents on Tuesday's after 4:00 p.m.
  • They have gluten free options, vegetarian choices and vegan options including vegan cheese. 
  • The pesto is nut-free. It's made from sunflower seeds so people with nut allergies can still enjoy. 

While I did eat main menu items, let's skip to dessert first. Have you tried the Strawberry Lemonade Donut? You will NOT regret it. The lemons are candied in house and the strawberries are fresh. The whipped cream is not fake and the combo with the grilled cheese donut is over the top. It is sweet enough to hit the spot, but is light and so flavorful that summer is the perfect time to experience it.

And I should not forget the donut that started it all, the Grilled Cheese Donut. I must admit that after trying the Strawberry Lemonade Donut, I wasn't sure I'd like the plain Grilled Cheese Donut. Let me tell you, the taste was out of this world. Yum, Yum, Yum!!!

Grilled Cheese Donut

For the sandwiches, we tried quite a few. The most popular is the Flying Pig which is roasted turkey, bacon, pickles, gouda on sourdough. Liked it a lot (and I normally pick pickles off everything). The pickles really rounded out the flavor explosion of this sandwich.

Then came the Grilled Mac and Cheese with a sample of the Creamy Tomato Basil soup. Loved the sandwich and the soup was incredible. Later, I did try the Classic Tomato and the Chunky Tomato Basil soups. Liked the chunky a lot...although the Creamy Tomato Basil soup will be my favorite forever. The Classic Tomato soup is heart healthy and was a little more bland. I thought it would be great for my kids who don't want a 'flavor explosion' in their mouth. This was also a fun combo because the soup offsets the sandwich and I felt like it was a terrific summer duo. (I must admit that you HAVE to dip the sandwich in the soup, me.)

After trying all of these other sandwiches, we got to try out the Hippie Chee. It's a vegetarian option that can be made vegan if they use the vegan cheese (yes, they have vegan cheese). I didn't think I'd like it--not a big veggie fan. Knocked my socks off and this may be my new favorite sandwich. Since I was so busy eating it, I forgot to take a photo. Thanks to Lisa, from The Walking Tourists who allowed me to use her photo.

Then came out the salads. And I'm saying, "You have salads?" These salads are HUGE! I don't think you can get a sense of how big those platters were. And the dressings were really delicious. I may or may not have dipped one of my sandwiches in the dressing left at the bottom of my sample bowl to make sure I soaked up every, single drop.

Overall, I had a wonderful time getting to know the menu even better at Tom+Chee on West Maple in Omaha. I've always gotten the same items every time I have visited and it was so much fun to try things that might be out of my 'normal' choices. I found out some of my favorites really aren't my favorite. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to try the various items. I'm so happy to have a 'year round' dining place since I now know that there is so many summer offerings. I hope you'll enter my giveaway below and I have also listed the other bloggers in Omaha doing a Tom+Chee giveaway on their blogs.
