It's hard to miss Wooden Windmill when driving down Broad Street. That's because, true to its name, there's a two-story wooden windmill at the front of the building. According to an article in the Fremont Tribune, the restaurant's previous owners bought this vintage contraption at a Silver Creek auction in 1982 and had it hauled to their eatery. The current owners made some renovations to add a party room in the actual windmill, making it a truly unique dining spot in the area.
The menu here has always featured home-cooked comfort food, with recent additions of Mexican dishes and recipes from Baby Huey's BBQ. Owner Kevin Hulett is one of the original creators of Baby Huey's, a style that's proven itself in regional barbecue circuits and condiment wrestling matches.

Sometimes, it’s best to take a hands-off approach. The techs at Fantasy’s Car Wash take this advice to heart every time they come to work, delivering touch-free car washes that have earned their shops the “top car wash” designation in Omaha Magazine’s Best of Omaha contest every year since 2008. Cars cruise in and out of the automated wash tunnels at outposts spread throughout the state, with many locations also boasting filling centers for diesel fuel or propane.
The relaxed, welcoming atmosphere at The Art Mill puts the focus on enjoying creativity instead of holding fierce golem-building contests. People of all artistic backgrounds will find an encouraging environment for clay slinging. Before constructing creations that will probably make you rich, an enthusiastic instructor built from clay will teach crafters the basics. Though instruction is geared toward beginners and intermediate-level artists, advanced talents are welcome to dust up. This isn't a full-fledged class, just a bit of expert guidance before you pound the provided three-pound clay lump into submission, which will likely resemble a bowl.
