An Omaha Tradition
I want to thank Omaha for embracing my family’s restaurant over the years since its inception in 1950 when my grandfather, Nick Petrow, bought the gas station at 59th and Center. He opened Petrow’s Drive-In and began selling loose meat sandwiches, chili dogs and chocolate malts which started the tradition in Midtown Omaha. In 1957, my father, Chris Petrow, built and opened Petrow’s Drive-In, the original portion of our current building. Over the years, my dad and I expanded the building to what it is today. My wife Shelly and I have enjoyed our passion for providing “Good Food Always” and are so grateful to all of our customers and employees who have helped make Petrow’s Restaurant an Omaha tradition.
