    Papa Chubby's

    We ate supper there last night and it was awesome. I had a turkey salad and it was massive. Very excellent. The lady friend had pulled pork and she said it was alright. I recommend it as a place to try. It's on Oralabor close to DMACC.

    Re: Papa Chubby's

    We ate there last weekend. I was highly disappointed. The brisket was really fatty, the turkey was more of a "pressed" meat than real turkey and the sausage was dry. We won't go back, there are a lot better places.

    Plus - a turkey salad at a BBQ place isn't really a good representation of their food.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    Been there many a times, love the place, never had a bad brisket there, you must have had a really off night, best Brisket I have ever had in Des Moines area. Pulled Pork is very good also. I would recommend it.

    I agree. The food is average to below average and is normally cold. Also, the owner or manager or whomever it was that was working when I have been there was not very friendly at all. The employees seemed to be nice though

    I hate that place.. I live really close to there so I've been there a couple times and everytime it's been BAD and I really do not like their BBQ sauce.. but that's just IMO


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Cactus Bob's is the best barbecue joint I've found in the Des Moines area followed closely by KC Barbecue.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    At a KC BBQ near you:

    Chili Cheese Tenderloin $5.99 with fries and drink:



    Add the Chili Cheese Fries $2.00 extra:



    Put them together to form the Chili Cheese Fries Tenderloin:

    I hope you didn't get all three of those in the same meal?!? Talk about an artery-clogger!
