In 1951, Eddie Galas founded Eddie's Bar and Cafe, a small sandwich shop and bar in South Omaha. Throughout the years, we have stayed true to Eddie's vision of continually expanding and remodeling our location, menus, and services to meet the growing needs of our customers.
In 1985, Eddie received the Nebraska Restaurant Association's most prestigious award, the Mary Lutz Trophy, as the Restaurateur of the Year due to his persistence in transforming his little cafe into a South Omaha landmark. This award was especially meaningful because Frank Kawa, founder of Johnny's Cafe, was Eddie's mentor as a boy and also the first recipient of the award.
Although fire destroyed the establishment in 1987, the business rose from the ashes and was resurrected as a catering business, both on-site and off-site.
Eventually, the business was sold to Kris and Cheryl Galas who have passionately provided customers throughout the area with tasty catering services ever since. In March 1999, we purchased the Millard Social Hall and Eddie's Social Hall which are more flexible to suit your needs. Off-site or on-site, Eddie's catering strives to make your event memorable with savory cuisine and remarkable service.
