Family friendly. Friendly staff. Typical McDonald's food, but at higher prices than the Ankeny McDonald's. Clean outside with moderately fast and improved speed drive thru. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5- no screaming kids.

The food was okay, service was on the other hand, terrible. I do not recommend. Just go to Des Moines for a McDonald's.

Gave it another try, yet with few cars, they still had a very slow turn around for getting our order. The food was hot, fresh and average. Staff friendly. MarcyDiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

Average McDonalds but a little pricey compared to most McDonald's. Sometimes they are much pricier than other McDonald's on stuff. Service I'd average.
