No food in the house, not feeling well, ordered a bunch of food for delivery. I ordered online, always a bonus. The delivery was on time, it took about an hour, but I knew that when I ordered. I ordered a small thin crust two topper. It was good. The crust was a bit crunchy. I like that. It was... More

We ate here tonight after we bought a groupon. I saw that over 1000 people bought it so I thought it should be good. My advice is do not dine in!!! The place is run down and the service is horrendous. We waited so long to be greeted and it took forever to get our food. The waitress did not... More

Surprised to see negative reviews on this pizza. This is one of our top two pizza places to eat at in des Moines. The cheese topper is absolutely delicious. The service in the bar at Merle hay location can be poor, but the restaurant side has always been good. Love the sauce and the flake crust. Visit f&o's once every... More

This is the location just north of Merle Hay Mall. Had the bad luck of attending a meeting here during the dinner hour. Almost no customers at dinnertime should have told me something, but was in the meeting room. Ordered a cheese pizza (their "famous" deep-dish) to play it safe (I thought). Crust dry and tasteless. Sauce just tomato sauce... More

I took my two young sons to dinner here over the Memorial Day weekend. Thinking we would beat a big crowd and we did. Since we came on Sunday, there was the family special and it was advertised as having a magic show from 5:30-7:30. We got there at 5:45, there was no magic show the whole time we were... More

Food is ok-maybe a little overpriced/ decore is the same as it's always been. The fun one was when my blind friend ask for the waitress to poor him a glass of water and she replied with,"I don't poor free water". Did I mention that I don't go to Felix and Oscars anymore. It's not like it used to be.... More

Formerly located in the Drake area, F & O is the original deep dish pizza in Des Moines, While not what it used to be, it still serves up a mean pizza.

I had a burger that was seasoned to perfection and moist. You could tell that it was a hand made patty, not pre-pressed. The bun looked and tasted home made too. The service was a little slow. I think the waitress was the only one there, but she was very friendly. My friends had the Chicago style pizza and raved... More
