Mexican food to replace ice cream in former Zesto location | Omaha dinners


The former home of Zesto ice cream in South Omaha is set to become the area’s fourth location for Mexican restaurant Lina.

Lina’s is a local fast food chain with outlets at 5832 S. 144th St. in the Millard area, 6520 Brentwood Drive in La Vista, and 2201 N. 90th St. in northwest Omaha. It is open 24 hours a day and offers a breakfast menu as well as other Mexican dishes.

Zesto’s, on South 13th Street near the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, was a popular spot for baseball fans before the city destroyed Rosenblatt Stadium. He achieved national recognition during the College World Series broadcasts. Oasis Ice Cream held the place for a while after Zesto closed.

The new Lina’s should open in about two months. For more information, visit
