O'Donohue's Old-Fashioned Soda Fountain on Route 66 in downtown Lincoln had a ribbon-cutting Friday and is observing a St. Patrick's Day grand opening. Chad Lawrence is serving hungry patrons sandwiches that include all-beef hot dogs, Polish sausage and Italian beef from a charming outdoor cart. Lawrence is proud to pile the dog or any sandwich with the finest Chicago-style trimmings and does it all with a smile for you. The quality is great and the prices reasonable. 

Inside the eatery you'll find the classic black-and-white checked and chrome retro style of an old-fashioned fountain and all the goodness of old-fashioned sodas and ice cream desserts.

O'Donohue's is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until traffic stops or 6 p.m.  and is located at 113 N. Kickapoo St. in Lincoln.
