Jethro's has been serving some of the best barbecue in the Des Moines area. On Saturday and Sunday they open up at 9:30am for breakfast. Recently I heard that they started to serve breakfast and really hungered to check it out. As I thought they do have more than your typical breakfast items with twists of smoked ham, brisket, pulled pork, and bacon. The breakfast menu features omelets with barbecued meats, breakfast plates, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, Texas toast size breakfast sandwich, and a large burrito. They even have a huge 16 egg ham and cheese masterpiece. Breakfast menu below.

Granny's Breakfast pictured above. Two extra large eggs any style with your favorite side of meat and your choice of toast. $5.95 Add hashbrowns for $1.95.
Game Day Breakfast pictured above. Our made from scratch biscuits and gravy, Texas style hash browns (that's topped with chili and cheese) and 3 eggs any style. $10.95
The game day breakfast was good but a bit odd for my taste. The chili and cheese hash browns really did not fit with the sauge gravey and biscuits. The hash browns were tasty on their own and I could of ate a whole plate of them. So stop in for some breakfast- but come very hungry.
Jethro's BBQ is located one block west of Drake University on Forest Avenue in Des Moines. Only five minutes from downtown.
