I don't think this place advertises itself as "Home of the Pepper Jack Pizza", but it should! FIrst of all, the environment was extremely friendly and family-oriented where they have coloring pages & crayons for children who are waiting for their pizzas. Second, this place...must be a popular hangout, because we were told to order our pizza BEFORE we showed up so that it was done in a timely manner. Third, the staff and manager (maybe owner) was so friendly they even agreed to take our group photo at the end of our meal. Fourth, the pizza! They make them in varying sizes from single-eater to group and with different crusts (even gluten-free) and their flavor combinations are unique. The Pepper Jack pizza (with lots of peppers on it) was out-of-this-world delicious: tangy, sweet, and cheesy! I don't live in Iowa, but I will always remember this place fondly.More

I have been a loyal Felix and Oscar's fan for DECADES! I started going here in 1978. The food has stayed delicious for all of these years. They make a variety of crusts and use tick cut toppings. When I was younger I would amaze...my family by eating a large thick crust on my own. If you go here you will find out just how hard that is! Whenever I am in town this is my first request. My family has even brought it out to Colorado for me. They will ship it in dry ice to you also! It's worth every penny!More

Visited this place in Friday night. Food was great (pizza, wings, cheeseticks) and the right temperature. Nothing greasy. Pizza was perfect. Service was awesome. Must try.

Although most known for thier pizza, F&O makes amazing burgers! We gave the ultimate cheeseburger a try, and were extremely impressed! If you're looking for take out, they have quite the order pick up operation. There's an entire team and station dedicated to phone and...internet take out orders.More

We came here for our niece's confirmation party. My sister had the taco bar ordered for everyone. The price for what was offered was great. It would have been good to know however that flour tortilla's were the only thing being used for the taco's...and chips(fried or not). While the adults didn't mind to eat the flour tortillas none of the children liked them, and there wasn't any other option for them to eat. The staff was wonderful taking care of making sure there was plenty of food and drink. The only other issue was the women's bathroom was out of paper towels, we informed the staff right away and this wasn't ever rectified the entire time we were there which was 2 1/2 hours.More

I was going to traveling to the Midwest on business specifically Iowa, and wanted to check out the pizza scene and was suggested this spot. I really enjoyed this place and the food. The service was amazing and it had a very family friendly atmosphere...that was welcoming all around. I purchased the Chicago Style Deep dish meat pie and it was amazing. If your in Des Moines stop by.More

This was our 1st visit. Staff was very friendly and great service. 3 of shared a large deep dish pizza. None of us liked it at all, didn't have a good flavor and way over loaded on top with sauce that didn't even have a...good taste. Other person in our group ordered a hamburger and it looked and tasted burnt. Food overly priced. Very disappointed.More

Friend wanted cheese bread and we found this place online. The staff was OK pleasant, but very slow. We had the suggested cocktail with blackberry brandy. It was like drinking corn syrup - WAY to sweet! The garlic cheese bread was really good! I ordered...spaghetti and meatballs and my friend had a chicken, mushrooms, penne. They claim everything is homemade. Well, the pasta is not! For $17 I got two golf ball size meatballs with a weird texture. The marinara was bland; seriously Ragu would have been better, I had to get some Alfredo to cut the acidity of the tomato sauce. Friend's was those ingredients piled in a bowl. Her's was about $20. Don't go. I don't know how the He&! this place has been in business so long. BLEH!More

I've had deep dish pizza all over Chicago and the delicious deep dish pies at F&O's are equally good if not better. Exceeded my expectations. You guys are AWESOME!
