I worked here for a few months back in high school and it was the worst job I ever had. Even so, every time I'm back home we have to stop in and eat here. Just make sure that you call ahead (or settle for takeout) on Tuesday - people from near and far pack into the place for the ribs. Ribs and prime rib are their specialties, but really there are no bad options on the menu.
Best steakhouse in the US! Nothing fancy, just great food and good people...and they keep one of my favorite beers on tap (I like to think they do this just for me, but deep down, I know it's just a coincidence). Whenever I'm in Iowa...I HAVE to eat here. When I took my wife here for the first time, I was telling her all about the place (and how we always make reservations). We pulled into the parking lot and she said "you need a reservation for THIS place?!" When we walked inside, she understood. That Place was packed...like (almost) always. The last time I was there, it was only half full...it was weird. I've never seen so few people in there. It was nice though...my steak came out pretty quickly!
I've heard about THAT PLACE from a variety of people, so out of curiosity, a need to get out of the house and also to take advantage of our IPTV member card, we drove north of Marshalltown to a place literally in the middle of nowhere in the crossroads of cornfields and a nearby town of Conrad. Believe it or not, you do need a reservation to dine here (at least for a Friday or Saturday night). It's very popular in the area and I can see why. It's a no frills restaurant that serves a great steak. The interior is a very curious mix of nostalgia over the years, graffiti and business cards. My husband ordered the large prime rib and I had steak and shrimp. Both were seasoned and cooked to perfection. The shrimp were few, but large and hand breaded. As others have mentioned, the sides are nothing exciting, but I wasn't expecting in the way of artistic dining. The fritos were a fun touch replacing the standard crouton. It was worth the long drive and word of mouth. We don't usually travel up to that area, but would most likely make a point of visiting here once a year due to the distance from our home. We left there with our curiousities satisfied.
