    Lunch Ideas in Des Moines

    Ok... I know there are tons of threads about food and places to eat, but I'm just wondering about a good place for lunch.

    I live in Norwalk. I am sick today, but willing to go out and try something different. My first thought for today was B&B. Anyone have suggestions for a good place for lunch near the south side. Don't feel like driving all the way across town.

    Looking for a good place for burgers or sandwich. Love the hole in the wall type places.

    Palmers Deli

    Not really close to the southside but if you are ok with driving a little I recommend it.

    Really don't see why this place is so good. I can make pretty much anything they make better and I am not that good of a cook. Pretty bland place IMO.

    Agreed 100%. That and the place is so damn expensive for what you get.

    Re: Lunch Ideas in Des Moines

    Grab a tenderloin at Smittys, A Pizza at Bordenaros, A Sausage Sandwich at Barattas, A Coney at Teds Coney Island, Tacos at Tasty tacos or Henry J's. There is also another good Pizza place by Lincoln High but i can't remember the name. The south side is full of hole in the wall great places to eat.
