My visit was "post lunch rush" but it still took an hour to be seated. Maybe the inside is cool, but I will never know as we we told that we had to wait outside and could not look around. There was ample seating outside and over half the tables were empty. After the two groups that arrived before us were seated, my party of three figured we were up next. Nope. Instead the party of four and the party of six after us were called next. I went to ask if they had missed us and was told that we were up next. Great. We were then seated...and fifteen minutes later we got a waiter who did not bring drink menus.
I would go on about their service issues, but do I have to? Burgers were smallish but tasted okay, but were missing ingredients listed on the menu. Fries were cold and flavorless. We didn't get a beer menu until our food was brought to us and our waiter never returned before that until check time.
We had come to Des Moines for Zombie Burger. Next time, I will go to the Hessen House or Fongs instead.

A fun, constantly packed place that's an ode to excess. Cheese, grease, meat, it's all packed to the rafters here, but despite the gut-busting nature of it all, there are signs that the chef and team here have done an excellent job of elevating and executing the fare.
The restaurant side is brightly lit and open, it works as a bit of a fun gimmick and place to throw down 4000 calories in a meal with some great craft beer (and while I've noted prices as reasonable above, and they are, their bottle list would qualify as cheap/inexpensive), it's not exactly a place you're going to want to hang out in for a lengthy period of time (nor do they want you to, as there's always a line).
So the beer...they had a dozen odd tap selections, with a mix of intriguing, standbys, and a few that won't attract your interest, supported by a fairly lengthy bottle list with some superb selections. You won't have to look hard to find something you want. It might not stand up to a night of drinking, but you're here for the combination of food and good drink, not for a night of drinking.

This place is a great idea / concept for any college town! They offer all types of "off the wall" zombie themed burgers. Don't be one to count your calories if you are heading here as everything is Full Flavored w/out taking any short cuts to reach their goal. One of the burgers I tried was 2 Grilled cheese sandwiches w/ burgers and mozz. sticks in between! The also offer milk shakes spiked w/ liquor... definitely worth a stop if in the area!
