Have you visited this site before? I hope you find it useful and helpful. I have been supporting an running that site for the past 5 years. I built the site out of frustration because I could never learn enough about new restaurants opening up in the Des Moines area. I figured it would force me to visit and report. It has somewhat been neglected over the past year with kid activities, church, and what excuses I can make up. I need to fire up my enthusiasm and once again and take the site to the next level. In the upcoming months I hope to introduce some new searching tools and maybe a mobile version of the site.
Some of the best BBQ in the Des Moines Area is served at the Cactus Bob's BBQ in Johnston. I have eaten the ribs, brisket, pork shoulder, and the pork tenderloin. All delicious. You walk in and order your food and sit down. They will call your number and you walk up and grab your food. They have 9 different sauces from sweet to super hot. The fries, beans, and slaw are unique. You know the food is good when the place is packed by Noon for lunch everyday.
My son and I went to Cactus Bobs for dinner. We have gone many times as he is a big Ribs fan. We typically split a slab of Ribs and fries. They also have maybe the best beef jerkey in town. Get some on your way out.
