Omelets galore at The Hamburg Inn in Iowa City

When visiting Iowa City’s famous Hamburg Inn, No. 2, I usually order up the ground beef Mexican Deluxe omelet with an English muffin. The omelet is spicy, tomatoey, beefy, and cheesy, highlighted with a decadent ribbon of sour cream, all packaged nicely within the confines of an eggy shroud.

On my latest trip, I veered off the norm and went with a Goosetown omelet, filled with grilled kielbasa, sauerkraut, and Swiss cheese, with a side of home fries to complete the meal.

The Goosetown is replete with slices of meaty kielbasa which contrasts well with the tart sauerkraut. The skin-on home fries are not as crispy or seasoned like the home fries at Lou Henri [see blog post], but still quite hearty.
