Budget BBQ

We tried this restaurant via Groupon. The food was ample, but not as tasty as we'd hoped. Everything was good - not great.

I visited your Restaurant in Des Moines near 70th Street. The young lady at the register was so sweet, and professional. The staff was great. I ordered a Turkey Reuben, and was told it loaded with "Special Sauce", "SWISS CHEESE", Turkey, and Sauerkraut! Well I have to say, that was the Worst not only Reuben, but worst sandwich I've ever...

I grew up in Des Moines and used to come to Mustards for great BBQ. This time rather than the BBQ I decided to have a Grinder. I was very disappointed in it. Very little flavor and the fries were under cooked. The only reason I didn't give a worse rating is that it was my mistake not to stick... More

We found this place by accident while visiting in the Des Moines area. I had the Chicago dog and spouse had the breaded tenderloin sandwich. Both were tasty and filling. People around us were enjoying bbq, pizza, and pasta. There are multiple TVs dedicated to sports. If we lived here, I'd be here often.

Ordering as you enter, it is difficult to understand the full menu. The pork tenderloins were average and the other sandwiches were OK. No beer service for lunch unless you want a bottled beer with a limited selection. A lot of better lunch restaurants in the area.

We order take out from Mustard's and were extremely disappointed. The steak sandwich was not even edible; tough with a lot of gristle. The chicken wasn't totally cooked. We should of taken it all back but it was pouring rain. We could pick up our order in 20 minutes but the wait for delivery was 90 minutes. Will never go... More

Food is good, but not great. Place is clean. Service is reasonable. We were there today for lunch. Food is consistent. What I had today tastes the same as when I was there six months ago.
