    Raul's Mexican

    Probably not a lot of people like the place but it was by far my favorite Mexican in Des Moines. It sounds like they are going to open again sometime in 2009 in WDM. Sign me up for the large Mexican plate!

    Re: Raul's Mexican

    mmmmmmm..... I LOVED Raul's. I miss those places. IMO, by far the best in Des Moines. Hopefully, they'll be back soon.

    Suggestions: Make it a cleaner place then the old east side restaurant, and make it more accessible than the west side restaurant. But keep the menu the same.

    There's a shortage of good Mexican restaurants in Des Moines?

    Weird. But a nice insurance check, I'm sure.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.
