Grid Iron Grill & Sports Lounge

Reviewed By narrowboatersia - Iowa Falls, Iowa

Having learned that this nearby grill had won the Iowa Pork Producers annual prize this year for best tenderloin, we stopped in and had a wonderful late afternoon meal, and yes, the tenderloins were right up there as two of the best we've had. We've been notching off various eateries serving these sandwiches from a 'passport' from the IPP organization but their passport was created before this place won, so are still hoping to get credit for it since their list has very few in this area, otherwise we're looking at a hundred mile + trip.
Warmly welcomed, lots of TVs on... it is a sports lounge... and the biggest beer I have ever seen for sale in the US, 25 or 26 oz. beats a British Imperial pint totally, and we had several Iowa brewers to choose among.
Sorry your earlier reviewer didn't get as much as he'd expected, our tenderloins were huge, stuffed with fresh lettuce, tomato, onion, etc. and we ended as usual with a request for a take-out box for fully half our meals. Hash browns were an optional side and while they didn't measure up to our benchmark they were delicious and not a bit oily. Spouse had the sweet potato fries and they came with a first: a pot of marshmallow sauce... which he devoured. And no, too stuffed to look at the dessert menu, and as we'd come for the loins we really didn't look at other items on the menu. A great visit, we WILL be back!

My family and I were new to Webster City this past summer. Dairy Queens were often hit or miss type establishments. We gave this DQ a couple chances hoping for the best. Unfortunately it fell short everytime.
The restaurant is completely understaffed. There were lines with more than 15 people waiting for the one cashier lady to take their order. Once we got our food, it was cold. The restaurant is not warm and welcoming, and doesn't feel very clean either.
Overall, this could quite possibly be one of the worst DQs we have ever been to. We have now lived in town for several months and have never gone back...

2nd Street Emporium

Reviewed By Kornkurt - Iowa Falls, Iowa

This is a great place. We like to bring friends from big cities here and they are always impressed. Excellent food, good service, a very nice dining experience. My favorite meal here is the pan fried cod, salad and twice baked potato washed down with a glass of pinot grigio.

Webster City Maid-Rite

Reviewed By StephanyIowa - Iowa

Short review...good place for hot sandwiches. Hot Turkey, breaded tenderloin, six or seven styles of loose meat sandwiches, inventive sides (mac n cheese, home made chips). Nice clean atmosphere, plenty of space for booths and tables. Lots of parking. Close to interstate.

Long rant...as a native Iowan who has also traveled extensively, the new owners of the Maid Rite franchise have kept some of the things that made this franchise gather fans over the decades. They have added some things that add value, like ketchup, fries, sides, etc.

However, they would do us ALL a favor if they would just get rid of the microwave that I know is hiding back there in the kitchen. No one wants to eat a sandwich that has a microwaved bun. Yes, it's beautiful on the plate, and presents well with the first bite of warm meaty goodness. But.

You can taste that it is going to go chewy by the time the sandwich has a couple of bites left.

Please, reconsider. For all of us whose memories are long and deep.

Very good Mexican restaurant with nice variety on menu. Has a lunch buffet also, which is pretty good. Service is always friendly. Food can take a while to get out of the kitchen if they are really busy. Take-out is a popular option. They have daily specials and the margaritas are very good.

Whoop-ti-doos & La-ti-daas is a great lunch restaurant, many tables to bring a crowd, nice for lunch with a friend too. They have panninis, wraps, salads, & soups. If you are a vegetarian, this is your lunch restaurant - you can customize your choice easily.

They have a 'Strawberry Soup' included with most meals. It is a small cup of a very yummy cold strawberry kind of yogurt something. VERY good! Makes your food just a little extra special.

Food is made to order, so enjoy the atmosphere while you wait. Really nice folks serving you.

Great stop while you are shopping at all the stores on 2nd Street.

Stopped for dinner on a Friday night. Surprised they weren't busy. Hard to find a decent taco pizza, but Godfathers does it right. The ladies running the store were friendly and efficient and the store seemed clean and well maintained. The pie took just a few minutes. I was a little surprised at the price, around $15 for a small, ouch, but it was really good. The price is my only criticism.
