This place has the best brisket I have ever eaten. So much flavor, no sauce needed.

Hot Butter Wings

Best wings in town. Perfect breading. Sauce is great. If you want something real that tastes good. This is the place.

Hot Butter Wings

I didnt have the hot butter wings, but instead had the cajun honey wings. It just wasnt an option for me to chose sadly.. because let me tell you, those are the most amazing wings i've ever had! Hands down my absolute favorite! The crunch from the fried skin, the juicy chicken on the inside with sweet heat cajun seasoning and sticky honey... OMG... never have i experienced a wing like that! Drooling just thinking about them! Best choice to have on their menu.. especially with a side of their collard greens! The talent in that restaurant is beyond compare and they are such a treat to have here in Lincoln!!!

Absolutely fabulous. Not falling off the bone over done. Just the right amount of tenderness while maintaining consistent chew. Best ribs I've had from a restaurant.

Lincoln may not be aware of the gift they have in Mary Ellen's. I grew up in a restaurant family of 65 years. It was fresh or it wasn't made. This is amazing, fresh, soulful food. Run don't walk and support this restaurant.

Mac N Cheese

We just had takeout from Mary Ellen's and let me tell YOU. I'm from the south and I've never had a more perfectly seasoned, perfectly crunchy, perfectly juicy, and perfectly PERFECT piece of fried chicken in my LIFE. And that mac and cheese? Game over, best in town.
