When I first stepped into Palmer's, I thought I had made the wrong choice. It seemed like utter chaos and there were way too many people there. I was in a hurry and I figured there was no way I'd be able to obtain my lunch and eat it in the short time I had available. They proved me wrong.... More

Love this place and would give it a 5 rating if it was open for more than just lunch. I know some are but the urbandale location is not and it is sad not have the option of Palmers after 3pm.

We order from Palmer's quite a bit. Everything is always fresh and portions are large. I would highly recommend a visit.

We enjoy going to Palmer's it is great food and fast service even when you are in line to the door. They have a very wide selection of sandwiches, both hot and cold. Along with a variety of soups, salads and desserts. Our whole group enjoys going here for lunch after the games. When in Urbandale we always try to... More

Great selection of sandwiches and salads. A bit noisy, but a definite must if you are in the Des Moines area.

The food is ALWAYS very fresh at all the locations. The price at the register can be a little shocking, but you pay for what you get. Fresh and high quality come at a price, and it's definitely worth it here! Nice thing is that everything is a la carte and half sandwiches are no problem. My favorite sandwiches include:... More

This deli is wonderful but get your fix during the day because it's not open in the evening. Big thick deli style sandwiches with lots of sides to choose from. My husband and grandchild (21/2) had dueling forks when they shared a piece of carrot cake! This is a very cheerful, modern place to grab a great lunch.

Always fresh and good but a little on the pricey side. Usually pretty fast. Large area to sit. Outdoor dining in some areas. Staff is very friendly. Sandwich's are good and sides are fresh and you have many to choose from. Comfortable and casual. They probably wouldn't care if you showed up in your pajamas. They do sell wine too... More
