Reviews:
When they start recognizing you...you might go there too much. This is my go to Starbucks since its so close to my job. I usually am here once a week to grab a coffee during lunch. Service is very consistent and polite but I am not surprised since its inside of a Target and they hire awesome people only.

Dairy Queen

7025 Douglas Ave
Urbandale, 50322
Reviews:
The service was horrendous. Well, one server in particular was bad. There was a teenaged boy and teenaged girl. The boy was making something when I arrived so I unfortunately got served by the girl. As I approached I got a look of what appeared to be disgust. Then she proceeded to give a lot of negative attitude while taking my order and intentionally did not acknowledge me when I requested no cherry on my sundae. When I asked her to remove the cherry she gave a long sigh and removed the cherry with her bare hand. I'm sure it was clean but being the clean-freak that I am it made my ice cream-eating experience very uncomfortable. Needless to say I will not be attending this Dairy Queen, or any for that matter, again solely because I do not want another experience like this one. #LoseTheAttitude

Palmer’s Deli & Market

7509 Douglas Ave
Urbandale, 50322
Reviews:
Everything is good at Palmer's Deli. Fresh ingredients and great variety make it a favorite lunch spot that is always busy. My favorite as a vegetarian is the spinner salad. A giant salad with a choice of ingredients all mixed together is always something I will eat. There is plenty of hearty food with soup, sandwiches and even pre-made food in the counter that can be heated up like quiche. The choices of salads rivals the larger grocery stores with pasta salads, fruit, vegetable mixes, and more. Probably the best and worst thing about Palmers is checking out and looking at all the treats! From the famous chocolate frosted brownie to giant scotcharoos to many delicious cookies, getting past the row of dessert is nearly impossible. My favorite is the frosted molasses cookie. It's like an old-fashioned ginger snap with frosting. You can also order and pay online. I don't know another local place doing this now. Good catering and delivery also from a small to a large function. Palmers is a great local establishment with multiple metro locations. All are busy for a good reason.
This is probably the freshest and cleanest deli I have ever visited. My spouse is so picky about his deli sandwiches and he could not stop raving about how delicious the food was on our plates. We tried their specialty sandwiches and several of their homemade salads and desserts. They were all just wonderful. In addition to the food, the employees were the most friendly and welcoming. They even fixed us up with complimentary snacks to treat us on our remaining road trip. Just a great place to eat if you are in Des Moines. Can't wait to stop in again!
We stopped here on our way through town just looking for a quick sandwich and they did not disappoint. Clean, friendly and most importantly delicious! They have sandwiches both hot and cold, soups, salads, sides, cookies and brownies. The staff was very patient and helpful while the boy bumbled his sandwich order and both of us left full and happy. Definitely recommend.

Tasty Tacos

8549 Hickman Rd

Reviews:
You literally CANNOT go wrong with a flour taco from Tasty Tacos. This place is one of the saddest part about moving so far away from Iowa. I have been to a bunch of their different locations and have never had a bad taco. Their beed mixture has beans in it and has a good flavor but I am also a fan of their bean flour tacos. Don't skip their taco sauce, either. I will be back in Des Moines in a few weeks and I am already thinking about my Tasty Tacos trip.
Nice tacos good value
Best flour tacos in town, hands down. Always consistent, clean restaurant, good service.

Victors Sports Club

Reviews:
My wife and I stopped in to watch the Blackhawks game and we both ordered the mini pizza and salad which was great and a bargin at $6.99 along with a tall boy special at $3, great food, great sports atmosphere,and awesome service from our waitress( Tina ).
We decided to go here because that had really good ratings. When we got here I wasn't impressed by the outside and inside. It was both small and a little worn down. The service was good but there was only one person waiting tables so if it were to get busy then you would be screwed. I lost hope at first when we got our appetizers because the onion rings tasted like freezer onion rings and the boneless wings were like chicken strips with really bad sauce. Once we got our burgers though I got really excited. They were huge! We all got the Hawkeye burger and I loved it. I could hardly finish it because it was so big. The fries were good as well and there was a generous amount of it. I also got like three huge containers of ranch which is a plus for me. Overall it was a good place but could work on the appetizers
Okay spot to drop by and grab a drink and a bite. It's a nice enough little local bar, but I found nothing really memorable, or spectacular, here.

Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt

4650 86th Street
Urbandale, 50322
Reviews:
Orange Leaf is my favorite frozen yogurt in Des Moines -- they have great flavors that change all the time so I feel like I always get to try something new and I love the toppings. The salted chocolate caramels are a genius addition!!
Best frozen yogurt hands down! I loved the white chocolate with strawberries, almonds and Nutella. The pineapple was excellent too! Can't wait to go back!
Perhaps it was due to the fact I went in 30 minutes prior to close, but the frozen yogurt that I selected (chocolate/vanilla twist) was soup and it melted quickly. The furniture seems to have some form of meta design going on, but its not good for anyone besides The Little Couple. Chairs sit about 18" off the ground and are not comfortable for grown adults to sit in. The other option were high tops that only appeared to seat two. To top it off, this place seemed higher in price than any other establishment similar to it with half the quality. They also seem stingy on samples, with the person manning the counter handling the cups and giving out a little less than a soupcon. I'll try it again during peak hours, but this was a disappointment compared to what was available in Phoenix.

B-Bop’s

Reviews:
Best chocolate shakes around! The fries are also amazing. I love eating at B bops, especially the one off of Meredith.
If you're new to Des Moines and like a damn good burger once in awhile, this is one local establishment you MUST try. I imagine if Anthony Bourdain came our way, this is something he'd want to get his hands on :) I frequent B Bops once every six months-ish just to get a fix. I order the #1 with cheese and a chocolate shake. Get the chocolate shake. I've had this similar order at other fast food places, it's just not the same. It does tend to get pretty packed during peak hours of lunch and dinner so if you aren't a fan of waiting, plan accordingly.
Hey, you want some fast food? Stop on by B-Bop's! I could describe the fast food to you, but you have had fast food before, haven't you. The price of the food here is a little less than that of McDs. The burgers are a little salty, but good. From my experience, B-Bop's consistently seems to have very friendly workers, which surprises me because if I had to work making burgers I'd be very pissed off. So, well done there, B-Bop's.

Panera Bread

Reviews:
Oh Panera - I visit you too often! Love the new loyalty card and the nutrition is now posted right on the menu.
I love this place! If you want good quality food fast come here. Came here for lunch and saw a full parking lot, I was a timecrunch snd worried it would take awhile for ny food. But less then 10 minutes later, I had my salad in my hand. I usually order off the "hidden menu" because I love the fact most options are low cal and high protein to keep you fuller longer. You can't beat fast food that is good for you!
These restaurants have the worst service of any restaurant I have ever been in. They do not have a separate line for short orders but everybody is mixed in together so you always get behind somebody that wants four dozen bagels and has never been in a bagel bakery before in their life.

The Beerhouse

4810 86th St
Urbandale, 50322
Reviews:
Stopped here because it is right of I-80. Great list of draft beers , with a mix of area beers and some great ones from both coats. I loved the Schlafly Pumpkin Ale, which was smooth with a strong pumpkin spice taste. Tge Peace Tree Blonde Tata had a nice orange flavor but was a little strong with the malt flavor. Duck wings were great, moist and flavorful. The salad it came with was long process of cabbage which after sitting for a few minutes got soft and flavorful. Got the DAM Marksman Burger didn't come with the BBQ sauce on it which was odd. The burger itself was quite good. The goods and meat on top were a nice combo of meat and smoky flavors. I hope the mast the user in the bigger is the same as the broker sandwich since that would be very good. The Hawaiian Burger was treated party when I asked about it. But it was on the list of would not order again. Sweet potato fries were crisp and fresh seeming. Though the crinkle fried with the other burger were nothing special.
Came here after meeting owner Nick this morning at the Pyro Pizza truck, which is also amazing! We looked into the Beerhouse's menu online and decided to try it out. One of our best choices this holiday weekend! The mini-adult of the group ordered mac & cheese, the wife had the fish & chips and I got the taco pizza. All were incredibly good. I highly recommend the pizza!!! There's no doubt that we'll be back again and again!
So happy to see the original owners of Overtime Sports Bar back and affiliated with this hot spot! Great beers, great food, and a staff that is family oriented are back! The atmosphere is sports themed, but yet comfortable to enjoy if you're not the typical "jersey wearing" sports fanatic. I would highly recommend hitting up Overtime Beerhouse for great food & beer, atmosphere, and friendly owners/staff! I no longer live in Des Moines, but make it a point to stop everytime I'm in the area!
