Royal Red Robin Burger

First introduced in 1973 the Royal Red Robin Burger has been filling bellies faithfully.   This masterpiece is a half pound burger topped with a fresh fried egg, applewood smoked bacon, American cheese,  lettuce, fresh tomatoes and mayo.  Now I go a bit further and add some guacamole.  Might be one of my favorite restaurant chain hamburgers in West Des Moines.  Check them out on

Zombie Burger - Awesome

A small group of us went to Zombie Burger on their Opening Day. The decor in the place was spot on with the use of metal studs, the murals of zombies, and the chain link fencing. The restaurant is split into two parts. When you walk in you can step up to the counter and order your food or head off down a narrow hall to a sit down dining with a full bar. We chose to sit down as there was not a long wait.


They have many appetizers on the menu. Plenty of new things to try from the goat cheese jalopeno poppers, fried buffalo bacon, and moonshine battered green beans. They also have baskets of fries to share with some unique options.


They have salads available, chicken sandwiches, and burgers. Pictured above is the Dawn of the Dead. It includes your choice of a single, double, or tripple burger patty. Then it is topped with cheese, bacon, red onion, mayo, and egg. I added guacamole and a side of onion rings. They don't have guacamole on this- but they should. :-)


I love the murals. This makes this a very unique place.


The only thing I missed out on was the shakes. I guess I will have to go back and get a burger and a shake.
