Buzzard Billy's Des Moines

Will the NEW Buzzard Billy's be worth a visit? I decided to get my cajun on check the place out.

I visited this restaurant many times when it was located downtown on Court Ave. and have many fond memories before the flood. The restaurant is now just south of Wells Fargo Arena between 2nd and 3rd. Parking here could be very tricky with any events at Wells Fargo Arena. However it is not impossible if don't mind walking a few blocks.

The menu is packed full with appetizers, cajun dishes, salads, and sandwiches. The menu is listed below.

I could not help not trying appetizer to get things going. I immediately jumped on the Cajun Popcorn for $8.99. Crawfish tails hand breaded and deep fried to a golden brown. They were served with homemade remoulade dipping sauce. Very good.

I chose for dinner "The Bayou Platter" for $12.99. A small blackened chicken breast, a half order of red beans and rice, a cup of chicken and sausage gumbo, and a couple hushpuppies. Everything was delicious. Would of liked more chicken and less red beans and rice.

Overall the ambience and service was great. Great place to catch the game and meet up with friends. This place is a keeper. Buzzard Billy's 615 3rd St, Des Moines, IA 50309 (515) 288-2520
