Smokey D's Double Meat Dinner

Transient

Today I visited Smokey D's for lunch right off 2nd Ave by the Harley Dealership.  I have visited this restaurant many times and the outcome is the same- delicious!    I have tried the baby back ribs, sausage, brisket, pulled pork, and burnt ends.  My favorite meal to get is the 2 meat dinner with a couple sides.  My favorite meat choices are the burnt ends and sausage.   The sausage is sweet, smokey, and tender.   The burnt ends are chunks of brisket ends that are packed with deep smoke flavor, dry rub, and a unique texture.   Just the nature of the beast.   You have many choices in sides and recommend that you step outside the box.   My favorite by far is the potato casserole and cucumber onion slaw.  The spud sticks, beans, and tater chips are good too.  They do have several locations serving different items so check out their website for a menu near you.  Sooo good!

Exile Brewing Des Moines

I met a friend this summer for a burger at Exile Brewing.  Exile Brewing is located in a old warehouse completely restored with the steel trusses and wood beams showing. The tables are refurbished and finished from the remnents of old barn wood.  

All beers are brewed in house with seasonal beers released all the time.  Their beer is so popular it is found at over 70 different bars and restaurants throughout Iowa making it the largest brewery in the State.

We sat out on the patio and enjoyed a beverage and some grub.  The place is huge with indoor and plenty of outdoor seating. They have a very good variety on their menu from appetizers, salads, burgers, pasta, and steaks.  On the weekends they are also open for breakfast.  Check out the menu.    

Below pictured is the Uncle Buck which is a ground chuck hand patty, bacon, slice of pepper jack cheese, caramelized onions, and red peppers on a pretzel bun.  Delicious.  So meet up with your friends for a beverage, grub, and an awesome time.
