Fun atmosphere and worth the visit!

Being a fan of Walking Dead, I Zombie and Z Nation, we had heard about this zombie-themed restaurant, and so for The Iowa Corn 300 weekend, our first stop was Zombie Burger.

So glad we stopped at Zombie Burger and chowed down! The burger menu is extensive and fantastically creative, the service is fast and friendly, and the food is scrumptious. You will eat too much and not mind at all...

So, I have lived in Des Moines a little over a year and this was my first opportunity to hit up Zombie Burger and Drink Lab. Wow, what a great place. The atmosphere is very cool - especially if you like Zombie stuff, old horror films, etc....The menu is killer - they have some of the most crazy burger combinations... More

4 star food. 2 star service. I traveled with 2 people who don't speak English and the waiter was extremely impatient, despite the fact that I was doing the ordering. Informed him that we would need more time to order, and then the waiter all but ignored our table until the check came. Visited other tables frequently. Other than that... More

Second visit here. Checked in on an ap ahead of time and only had a 5 min. wait, which was nice. Had a good BBQ burger and another in our group had the Elvis burger with banana and PB. The fries were soggy and needed to be cooked longer, in my opinion. Staff were friendly, but a bit slow in... More

This is an awesome burger restaurant that puts 5 Guys to shame. Very popular with the locals. It opened at 11 on a Sunday and by 12:15 there was a 30 minute wait.

Its awesome. Great food, great staff, & your guaranteed to have a good time! Lots of options as far as food and drinks go. The main downfall is of Zombie Burger is that your almost guaranteed to wait.

Amazing food! But plan to wait especially during the dinner hour. I love the trailer trash burger- burger piled high with deep fried pickles, cheese curds and bacon!

I think we've been here three times now & each time has been very busy! Unique burgers, fun menu & zombie decor! Plenty of vegetarian options too! My small house salad was enough to share & very fresh. Our burgers & un-burger was delish. Kids liked the mac & cheese. The staff does a good job keeping up! The wait... More
