Not at all impressed with this place. I came in the other night for the very first time because my gps spotted it. I thought this would be a good stop on my way back home up north. After 10 minutes the bartender nor waitress came by and I had to go to the bar to order my drink. The drink was good. The tall blonde guy made it. The blonde woman however had such a scowl on her face you think I was trying to sell her crack. Not a very clean place either. My table was dirty when I sat down and the tab from the last customer and dishes were still there 15 minutes later. It wasn't busy but I still had to go back to the bar and order my second drink and paid and left. Next time I'm in Des Moines I will be sure to check out other establishments. This one is sorely lacking in customer service. But I left a tip because I'm not a bitch like that female bartender seemed to be.
great place in spite.....
Great place in spite of the cold blooded old crab bartender that insist on keeping it a hundred degrees in the place. Don’t go in on Thursday or Friday afternoon and you won’t have to deal with her. Unfortunately she sticks around after shift and makes the rest staff and customers sweat their ars off until seven or so.
The rest of the staff are a hoot and are the reason I go there.
Best food around.
This place is awesome! The inside is enormous, pool tables, several tvs, fireplace, tons of pull tabs and pull tab machines. Everyone is real friendly, staff and customers.
Get the burgers! 6 bucks, the cooks grind it themselves from steaks! If you're not a big burger fan, try one of their specials. It changes each night, and the it's set by the cooks.
Speaking of cooks, find out if Jennifer is working. Her food is the best!
BLACKS WELCOME NOW!!! HIP HOP NIGHT FRIDAY AND SATS!!. From 9:00-2:00am Fri and Sat it is Hip-Hop night so anyone who misses the Redondo Bar n Grill this is the new place to get down. Please no Samoans!!
Dump with a Big D.
rude wait staff
the MEAT is FRESH and very TASTEY
YARDARM WORSE BAR AROUND. They pour heavy untill your wasted, then water down the drinks. It's true the cooks dont wash their hands after using the bathroom. The urinals havent been fixed in years. Some staff have 'ISSUES' And the bar is used as a motel after close, if ya know what i mean. I should know, I worked there for a year. RED ROBIN IS THE PLACE TO GO.
Feces Burgers. I was in the pub on a Friday and the cook was in the bathroom with me and did not wash her hands. I watched her walk into the kitchen and ignored the sink in there also. It was a bowel movement not urination if you know what i am saying.
It's bad DONT GO. The bartenders are rude! always shorthanded, messed up bar tab at the end of the night, their food is tasty but no worth being served by amaturs. Crowded, not good much. I couldnt play abr tabs because they were "too busy" the place is a joke, im telling you go else where!!!!!
not recommeded. this place is at the bottom of my list. nothing good to say about. go somewhere else to spend your money.
I really like the RC factor, myself -- "oooooh yeah" :). Well, the regulars (myself included) may indeed be an acquired taste, but I have put in many an hour acquiring and refining that taste, and I love this bar. The food is inexpensive and great. The drinks are friendly. The staff are amusingly eccentric, interesting, funny, and entertaining. Come in and get to know us, and then judge for yourself. If you have a seat at the bar, you'll make friends, guaranteed (whether you want them or not). :)
