Jimmy's BBQ Pit

Reviewed By init4keeps - Des Moines, Iowa

A Boone top ten restaurant! Friendly staff serve hot, smoked meats. We loved the decor. The "seating" for waiting to be seated is a lot more comfy than I anticipated. It's a giant log. Loved it. Very family friendly. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

Dutch Oven Bakery

Reviewed By Jay Y

Stopped here twice this month: enjoyed it so much the first time, we returned the next week. Excellent selection of sandwiches, wraps & salads. Very friendly staff, excellent food. Of course, the baked goods are excellent. The fact that, after driving up from Des Moines on other business on successive weekends, we chose to eat at the Bakery. My wife and her friends are already a special trip just to have lunch here.

Dairy Queen

Reviewed By itsme018 - Des Moines, IA

I didn't like this place at all. My sundae was expensive and sloppy. I asked for hot fudge and got chocolate sauce. The server wanted to be anywhere else dealing with anyone but me. The inside and outside were both dirty, the trash can was overflowing.

The Tic Toc under new ownership is excellent. The food is wonderful and the service is excellent. There's been some redecorating done. Both lunch and dinner are great.

Very family friendly and with a newly remodeled front dining area, this place has the best bourbon chicken, tender roast beef and today had some really good beef stroganoff along with many other selections on the buffet. Friendly staff. Clean. Vegan and paleo options on the buffet. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids.

Enjoyed lunch here with sixteen friends for a business birthday lunch. Called ahead and they set up tables for the group. Orders were taken quickly, and food arrived in a timely manner, and hot! The menu has a wide selection of chooses, and combinations of lunches or dinners. Authentic Mexican food and they serve the chips warm!

Colorado Grill The

Reviewed By Leonard S - United States

You shouldn't have any difficulty finding something to enjoy off their extensive menu. Wide range of choices, including various pastas, steaks, burgers, sandwiches, etc. They do serve alcohol, with a very nice bar. Plenty of seating options from booths to tables and a private room. The breaded pork tenderloin was very tasty and HUGE. A pasta dish one in our party ordered was delicious and, again, the portion size was LARGE. Very clean facility. Our waitperson was very efficient, but cordial. Reasonable prices too.

New China

Reviewed By init4keeps - Des Moines, Iowa

And we rarely carry cash. So, either you buy more than you want, in some cases, or you just plain don't get anything. These businesses are all too happy to lose the business. Friendly staff. Marcydiner tantrum scale of 5/5-no screaming kids. I'll try to check it out next time bringing cash, but most people go to restaurants on a whim. The place is clean and looks nice. See posted pics for decor and hours. Family friendly and vegan and paleo options.
