There are very few good things I can say about this place. Its cheap and the service was good.
The food was mostly fried or just comfort food. And they only had one vegetarian dish, the Fettuccine Alfredo which was beyond bland and the sauce was clumpy and congealed. The Coconut cake was dry and the icing was super sugary and tasted out of a can. So disappointed.

Hidden Gem in Des Moines. I've been going for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. I've the pasta and meatballs hundreds of times, it might the best i've ever had in a restaurant. What ever you get, you must have the salad with the Maxie's house dressing. They sell it behind the counter, so after your meal, stop by on your way out and stock up. It's unbelievable.

If you're looking for a low brow (i mean that in a good way) place with excellent food and service, THIS IS YOUR PLACE!!

Maxie's is a small restaurant that seems to attract an older crowd. There are lots of drawings and paintings of cars throughout the restaurant, but the atmosphere doesn't seem to match.

The service, food, and prices are all average. I'll suggest either the Maxie Burger, which comes with onion rings and fries, or the spaghetti. Maxie's is known for both. The burger is great and so is the spaghetti sauce.

They also have a meal which comes with the Maxie burger AND a side of spaghetti... this is probably your best bet here. Other than that, there's nothing too incredibly special about Maxie's.
