Wonderful restaurant with amazing service & phenomenal food.
Excellent service, food was wonderful, we did the 6 course Chef's choice tasting menu and were pleased with 5 of the 6 courses. One of the seafood courses was bland. The staff was extremely attentive and made it a special evening for us. Next time we go back we will definitely be ordering from the menu rather than doing the tasting menu but it was a fun experience. Glad to see Des Moines doing fine dining!!
I travel a lot for work and have the good fortune to try great restaurants all over the country but had one of my best dining experiences in a while last night in Des Moines at Baru 66. We were there during Restaurant Week so the menu was a little limited but everything we had was wonderful. I had the lox, braised ribs and goat cheese spread for dessert. And while the food was delish it was the usual charm of a quaint, chef-owned restaurant that won me over. All of the wait staff was great, the bartender made some great drinks and the chef's wife was so nice. At the end of the evening the chef David came behind the bar and chatted with me and my co-worker. Really fascinating story and he introduced us to some drinks on his dime. Very cool experience and I will definitely be back. Keep up the great work!

Ordered a cute little cake for my dad's birthday. I called in the day before and they had my order waiting and ready to go when I arrived to pick it up the next day. The staff was super friendly and did a nice little bit of decorations on the cake. It was a simple cake, just chocolate with white frosting, but it was mighty delicious and my dad loved it. Thanks Bake Shoppe! I'm excited to try one of the speciality cakes next time around. They also have a selection of cookies, dutch letters, and other pastries. I tried an apple pastry that was out of this world.
Amazing cookies, and pastries! They are delicious and top of the line quality. Their Dutch letter are tastier than most bakeries in town, and I'll definitely be back soon!
Their claim of having Barbara's Champagne Cake is a joke. This cake does not come close to the cake I remember at Barbara's.

Dairy Queen

Reviews:
Just as a note to potential customers, this is a very basic, no-frills DQ. I don't think it would have even counted as a "Brazier" store back when they used that branding. If you want actual food, you're limited to hot dogs, potato chips, and a BBQ pork sandwich. Otherwise, its the standard DQ treats menu with Orange Julius items shoehorned in. Service has always been pleasant and the youngsters working there do a nice job getting orders filled quickly.

Best fast food in town
i just remember this place being super good., moved to Nevada Iowa back in 98 and a friend of mine had taken me here.
Best fast food french fries around. Love getting the double cheese burger combo. Always speedy service, but not always with a smile Love the music playing loud out of outdoor speakers. Lots of 50s and 60s tunes. Wish they had a sit-down area inside!

Reviews:
Decent food, good service and price. Don't stop in if you're looking for great taste but for a quick bite out, it's worth it. My husbands Reuben and my cavatelli were par for the course but the jalapeño poppers were fantastic.
If you want microwaved frozen food, this is the place to come. Price: About $16 for a pizza that might feed 2-3. Parking: Lot Service: Slow. Food: I ordered a medium pizza (they charge for each topping) and a side of french fries. The pizza sucked. It was quite bland and tough. The fries tasted like they were thrown in the microwave after being frozen. They were put in a paper bag for take out and by the time I got home, the bag was drenched in oil. Notes: I probably would avoid this place.
Really delicious food, quick and courteous

Consistently good food, but a touch pricey.
Go for it! Best orange chicken in town.
Everything is just "not quite." It's not bad it's just not quite good either. Nothing ever tastes like you except it too.

Burger King

Reviews:
Burger King's are Burger King's. Everybody knows what they are and what they have for chow. This BK however really lacks in customer service. I have had multiple times where the employees are either distracted by their own personal conversations or just rude. Last Sunday I stopped at drive through and waited 15 minutes behind the speaker because they were only taking one order at a time and finishing it at the window before taking the next order. Just horrible. If in the area looking for quick burgers go to B-Bops.

Subway

Reviews:
This subway needs a new employee. Wendy is extremely disrespectful & rude. The first time we ordered with her we figured she was just having a ad day. The many times since it hasn't changed. We were inline we she snapped loudly at a customer and rolled her eyes at the woman. We left and went to a different subway & we will not be coming back if she's working. The other subway knows her by name & they receive a lot of complaints about her behavior!
