Pizza is pretty good. Only negative is the selection is pretty limited on the menu. Service is average but the food is good.

This has become our family's go to pizza place. Like many cities there are fine choices for pizza, but a few just seem to stand out. We love a good, crisp, thin crust and Encore provides it every time. Fresh salads, wonderful cheese bread and we leave satisfied every time. The servers are always friendly and the atmosphere is very... More

This is hands-down one of the best pizza joints in the Des Moines area. The pizza is (of course) is amazing. Pasta is mouth-watering. Salads are super nice & a "meal-sized" salad is easily 2 meals. Creamy garlic dressing is to die for -- I could eat it by the spoonful! They have a great lunch buffet during the week.... More

This is a locally owned restaurant with a very friendly staff and great pizza. If you like thin crust pizza, you will enjoy Encore.

Great thin crust pizza, onion rings. They also have a lunch buffet during the week that allows you to try different kinds of pizza, not just the standards.

We had a very large group of both adults and teenagers, I called ahead and they reserved a room for us. They were very accommodating and the service was great. We ordered pizza's and salads and were both very good! Everyone enjoyed it!!

We love the thin crust pizza at Encore! They have great onion rings too and they are great with their house dressing to dip them in.

Our group of six travel the metro rating and searching for the most authentic, delectable thin pie, this past Friday Encore was our 30th establishment we had the pleassure of dining at. Got there around 8pm and the place was almost all ours, therefore we took advantage of the situation. Started out with onion rings, if you are a fat... More

The pizza is excellant brick oven style crust! Always perfect! They are generous with the toppings and cheese, and it's cooked to perfection! I love the fact that they deliver too, it's hard to get a really, really good pizza delivered. Their cavetelli is pretty darn good too! I've never been disappointed with either dining in or having it delivered!!... More
