quietriot gave Cazador 5 Stars

This is the best Mexican place in Ankeny, which really isn't saying much. But 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)

quietriot gave Francies 5 Stars

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 Tursi's Latin King 5 Stars

Despite being on the East side, the Latin King is over-the-top wonderful. It is a true dining experience with wonderful Italian food and other American-Italian favorites.

quietriot gave Tumea & Sons 5 Stars

It has to be said, I love Tumea's. It is a family atmosphere, the owner is usually there every night along with one or more of his sons. They aim to please. If there is something wrong with your it... (see full review)

quietriot gave Chicago Speakeasy 5 Stars

One of the best kept secrets in town. If you love steak and seafood, go here! They have an enormous salad bar and their salads are delicious. Very 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)

quietriot gave A Dong 5 Stars

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)

quietriot gave Club Car Restaurant & Lounge 4 Stars

the Club Car is a very reliable place to eat. The barstaff is a bit unfriendly but their food is great pub fare - try the French Dip with french fries.

quietriot gave Urban Grill 4 Stars

I like the Urban Grill for it's good service and the food is great. Not the best I've ever eaten, but I will always go back.

quietriot gave Sam & Gabe's Italian Bistro 5 Stars

My favourite restaurant in the Des Moines area. Perfect for a night on the town or a date with significant other. One time I ordered a pecan-crusted whitefish that was out of this world. All the fo... (see full review)

quietriot gave Michael's Restaurant & Lounge 4 Stars

This is probably one of the most overlooked places to grab pizza in Des Moines. The ambience is comfortable and the pizza is wonderful.

quietriot gave Iowa Machine Shed 5 Stars

Always, always a great place for a big family meal. Food is served family style and I love the gift shop - lots of good finds. I recommend it!

The burritos are HUGE and delicious! Very recommended if you love Mexican food.

quietriot gave Drake Diner 4 Stars

Love Drake Diner but it makes me sad that 2 people were murdered there in 1992

quietriot gave Limey's Pub 5 Stars

Always a fun place to go for drinks - but I need to take a moment to rave about their cheese balls - OH MY GOSH, so delicious and they give you a TON of them for pretty reasonable price. I wish they ... (see full review)

Like the Olympic Flame, Los Laureles is not often heard of by people in town but the food is OUTSTANDING. The atmosphere iis just fine and they just remodeled it. Honestly, the best authentic Mexica... (see full review)
