outstanding fries – trust me, i’m an expert. super kid-friendly, great patio in the dry months, great burgers, meatloaf (i think this would be my brother-in-laws chosen “last meal” ). family friendly and great addition to the overlook neighborhood. desserts can be hit and miss. free pasta meals for the little ones.

over-rated, long lines and bad take-away experience with (past due) eggs bennedict that could have nearly walked away on it own.

favorite breakfast in town with fluffy german pancakes worthy of a pilgrimage… clarification, favorite sober breakfast spot. best hang-over greasy spoon would have to be Cricket Cafe hash browns imho

worth the wait ethiopian goodness

so so good. reminiscent of the dishes i first tried with college friends in San Francisco on lazy sunday afternoons. bit slow service and scary outside for suburbanites. the hole in the wall is best entered off of N. Williams at Ankeny.

very cheap eats and off the beaten track.

veggie platter

ridiculously good lentils, injera and the rest

dining with taxi drivers

this hole in the wall institution of vasoline alley is notorious for its 24hr service and dodgy late night crowds. never a dull moment or forgettable meal…. definite drinking food.

coconut gelato

vegan food need not taste like cardboard

as much as i wanted to like this place after two visits i had to stop. overpriced and bland despite the great location and decent ambiance.

One of my top 3 restaurants for the past few years. mmm. Communista plate on the heated patio seating with an avocado salad and sangria.
