    Anyone else a fan? I have no idea where to get some in the DSM area. Texas Roadhouse does not count

    Costco. Bring it home and cook it. Delicious.

    I love prime rib! I don't know of any places in Des Moines but if you ever get to Thor there is a little bar/restaurant called Unkies that has amazing Prime Rib.

    Iowa beef steakhouse. Maybe its on a poorer side of town, but its delicious. Also a lot of places downtown offer specials on stuff like that. If you have big money, I'd recommend 801 grand (best I've ever had, but it was very very expensive) If not, chicago speakeasy also has some decent prime rib. Now I'm hungry

    (I know not in DSM but it's the only good thing in Nebraska once you are west of Omaha.)

    In no particular order (just what came to mind)...

    Big Steer in Altoona
    John & Nick's in Clive
    Rube's Steakhouse in Waukee
    Johnny's in West Des Moines
    801 Chop House in Des Moines

    Personal favorite is John & Nick's in Clive, so amazing. Hard to go wrong with any of these.

    Well, that was the first time I've looked at the 801 Grand prices.
    I expect my heart to start again in a few minutes.

    Can see this being a great coupon, but I have a menu question. Would you really spend $30+ on meat and then pay extra for starch and veggies?! It seemed that way on the menu...
