    That's good to know - I'll keep that in mind when I'm there again, we were there in the middle of the work day and it would have been in bad form to have margaritas.

    The BBQ Tour: Woody's Smoke Shack, cont'd

    Back to Woody's Smoke Shack - BBQ Catering -- Dine In -- Carry Out -- The Absolute Best!!

    Woody's corn cake.



    I tried the ribs/brisket/pulled pork combo meal.



    All of the meats were done perfect.

    Woody greets nearly all of his customers by first name. As the rooms filled up it seemed there were just as many take away orders as there were dine in.
    Woody's is definitely worth another visit.

    The Breakfast Tour: Mullets, cont'd

    Mullets - Des Moines, Iowa

    The interior is mostly a fishing/sports motif. Many celebrities that sported mullet hairstyles from years past and a few vintage boating/fishing ads.

    The bar area.



    The front dining room overlooking the Raccoon river.



    The bloody mary's were excellent! The rim is seasoned with http://www.chefpaul.com/site.php?pag...&productID=181



    and so was the second...



    The bloodies were not hand mixed but was a bottled brand by the name Hair of the Dawg Bloody Mary and Drink Mixes. A locally produced product that is the best bottled mix I ever tasted.



    Very tasty, indeed!

    Mullets - Des Moines, Iowa

    Oh yeah, we stopped for breakfast today.

    Yeah, we are on the menu too!



    The Breakfast Meatloaf
    Pork breakfast sausage meatloaf with red pepper, potato, mushroom and onion. Topped with two eggs and monterrey cheese sauce served on top of a split biscuit.



    Bacon Chorizo Hash Browns
    Hash brown skillet with scrambled eggs, bacon, chorizo, red pepper, onion and swiss american cheese. Served with toast.





    These were both very tasty!
    All of the staff were the friendly interactive type that I like. They were entertaining yet not obtrusive. There are many items on the menu that caught my eye. Very much worth a trip back for any meal!

    The Breakfast Tour: Brickhouse Cafe

    Brick House Cafe - Des Moines Metro - Johnston, IA 50131 | Metromix Des Moines

    The Brickhouse Cafe was highly recommended by Darren of Smokey D's.



    The breakfast menu is very basic. I chose the breakfast combo that included their famous Swedish style pancakes.



    Everything was hot, fresh and perfectly prepared. The pancakes were a thinner buttermilk type, very tasty!
    The service was the fast friendly/interactive type that I like. The end of this month is their 6th anniversary. They will be serving hot roast beef sandwiches and a piece of their homemade pie as a meal special.

    Went to this restaurant at a small airport (McCollum Airport) when there was time to kill last week, the menu looked great but we just had an appetizer (house made potato chips with blue cheese béchamel, crumbled blue cheese and balsamic reduction) and a few liquid nitrogen dirty martinis while we watched the planes.

    I'll go back again to try a full meal.

    This trip I tried the chorizo breakfast.



    The hahbrowns are the best of any restaurant in the area. The chorizo they use is on the milder side. Again the service was personable and fast.

    The BBQ Tour: The Q

    Welcome to The Q Barbaque Resturant & Bar Home Page

    This is one of the newer BBQ places. There is quite the write up about how they got the advice of a Kansas City BBQ Guru. We shall see.

    The bar area.



    I ordered the loin back ribs with mac n chz and cole slaw. The meal also came with a bite size jalapeno corn muffin.



    The cole slaw presentation deserved it's own pic.



    My friend ordered their hand breaded pork loin.



    They had the usual array of bbq sauces. Mostly sweet without much variation.



    The staff was friendly and attentive. The side dishes were good. The tenderloin was meaty and had visible spices in the breading. The dry rub on the ribs were really hard to zero in on.

    The BBQ Tour: Cactus Bob's

    Cactus Bobs BBQ







    This trip I had some local celebrities join me.

    The Chuckwagon Sandwich with fries and baked apples.



    Two chose the rib tips with beans and cole slaw





    I had the St. Louis style ribs with beans and cole slaw.



    The sides were the stars here. The cole slaw is a vinegar based as opposed to mayo, very tasty. The fries are made in house. The baked beans are some of the best I have ever had, meaty and smokey.
    The rib tips were the real deal, cut off the bottom of the sparerib. The Chuckwagon is always a good choice.

    The BBQ Tour: Cactus Bob's, cont'd

    I went back the next week to try their homemade pork tenderloin.





    This is a batter dipped pork loin slice. The pork was very consistent and lean. The honey mustard sauce on the side was a nice touch. Cactus Bob's is also known for it's HOT bbq sauces. The tables are set with three standard sauces. There is a side table in the front room that has about 8 more sauces that are extremely hot to ridiculously hot. The hottest on the table is not that bad IMHO

    The Deli Tour: Manhattan Deli

    On my recent sightseeing tour, I had the honor of traveling with a local restaurateur, Victoria Hagar.

    The owner of..





    She asked me "What do you think a deli should be?". I said, Quality meats, cheeses and salads. She smiled and I told her I would come to visit.

    Recently there was a nationwide contest for sports fans favorite sandwich. They came in 5th with the Zach Johnson (ham, hard salami, pepperoni, provolone, hot pepper cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, & oil dressing)



    The decor is pretty basic. The dining area is comfy booths with little distraction.
