This is the best Mexican place in Ankeny, which really isn't saying much. But still....you can find great fajitas and margaritas here, along with chips and salsa and walk away pleasantly stuffed. Th... (see full review)
quietriot gave Old Chicago 2 Stars
I wasn't expecting to be blown away, since it is a chain. I ordered the chicken fettucine alfredo. I could have made better at home. The alfredo sauce tasted like it came out of a jar from the groc... (see full review)
Francies has a great menu selection. I love a good sandwich and french fries but on my last visit I just got a cobb salad and it was quite awesome, even for a cobb salad. Highly recommended!!

quietriot gave Caribou Coffee 4 Stars
I love Caribou coffee, I think it's better than Starbucks. However this particular location never seems to have enough seating. I know it's proximity to local colleges probably has something to do w... (see full review)
Some of the best Asian cuisine in Des Moines! Try their Spring Rolls - they are to die for. The service can be a tad unfriendly, but I think it's because sometimes they don't understand English very... (see full review)
quietriot gave Drink: The Original Fun Bar 4 Stars
Drink is very fun, but it must be said that I'm a female and I never want to go to Drink unless my hair looks perfect, I'm wearing a low cut top and my jeans make my ass look good. Lots of yuppies an... (see full review)
