Don't be put off by building and decor. Food was wonderful. People were awesome and very friendly. 6 of us walked in and had no idea this was a deli, but the sandwiches were unbelievable. Pork tenderloin as big as a dinner plare, and sample of seasoned beef made me want to stay another day so we could have another... More

A small family run shop that sells snacks, drinks, fresh cut beef AND amazing food. Great for a quick lunch on the go. Their cheeseburgers are huge and pretty inexpensive. This place has never disappointed. The brothers that run it are super nice and very funny.

Traveling from New Mexico to northern Iowa for holidays, like to try out of the way cool places. Looked for pork tenderloin as a former Iowan. Saw the place on line, read the accolades and decided to drive into town as we passed through. Simply outstanding joint. Great staff, service is old school. Clearly a passion for this exists. Pork...

You want to get treated like you did in the good old days. Go to this Grocery store. I went in to get some Ribeye steaks on the bone, it's impossible to find those now these days. Not only did they have them, the cut to order and they were aged. All for very comparable pricing to the chain grocery... More

Good burgers, great pork tenderloin, nice Reuben. Very friendly and fun staff. Good value and large portions. The potato salad was sweet and creamy. Lots of memorabilia on the walls so plan to spend some time looking around.

Not only are the sandwiches fantastic (Dad's Killer - hot - is my fav), but the place is so much fun to visit! The owners/workers are some of the friendliest, most entertaining people I have ever met, and their selection/variety of meats is out of this world. But, the best part, never be afraid to ask for advise. Johnny's knowledge... More

This place is know for it's tenderloin sandwich. This is a pork tenderloin, breaded and fried, served on a hamburger bun with pickle chips, onions, and your choice of condiments. I had one today, and it's OK, once you trim the excess tenderloin that sticks out from the hamburger bun. But hands-down, the cheeseburger is the best I've ever tasted.... More

While in Des Moines for an event I searched for the best tenderloin in Des Moines. This store was in mentioned in several of the results, so I wanted to give it a try. Their tenderloin was fantastic, and very reasonable at $5. They have an extensive menu, of which many items sound good. An excellent find in Des Moines!

The B&B is a real trip. It's a small, specialized grocery combined with an old fashioned meat counter where they will sell you their own cuts of meat for you to cook - or cook up your favorite sandwiches while you wait. The counter help remembers you from one visit to the next and if they don't, they're extremely friendly... More
