    I'm considering going to Spaghetii Works this weekend. Is it a good place to eat?

    Nothing to rave about. You can definitely get quantity over quality though.

    It was really good but I think they have new management or ownership because ever since they renovated the inside the food has not been as good.

    My 2 favorite birthday places are Apare (Japanese) and Rubes. Excellent for hanging out and having a brew with friends, and great food.

    For your birthday?

    Go to Sam & Gabes, Centro, Latin King or someplace like that. :)

    Can't go wrong with the Chicago Speakeasy either.

    Hu Hot. If you like Chinese/Mongolian - this is the place.

    Depends on how spicy you make your food, and how much you eat. I don't know if a trip to the Lumberyard would be a good idea while you're full of onions, pasta, and spicy oils.

    If going downtown go to Tumea & Sons SE 1st or La Trattoria on 4th. There are a lot of new restruants in the east village I want to try.

    Spaghetti works sucks

    The Latin King is great, like 22 said.

    Hu Hot is a place where you go through different stations, and pick out your noodles, meat, vegies, and oils to go on your meal, and they cook it around a huge open stove. It's pretty cool. Don't know if you've been there or not, but it's fun for everybody.

    Thanks you guys. It's really sad, I've never really been in Des Moines even though I've lived in Indianola, Ankeny, and Ames now. :no::no::no::no::no:

    If you want Italian Food I would advise Gino's on 6th Ave for the best in town with Tumea & Sons a close second. I would choose Spaghetti Works over La Trattoria.
