    If you need to feed a small group, make it easy and order the whole pit. Has all the meats and 3 pints of sides. Says it will feed 4-6 ppl, but that's very hungry people so be prepared for leftovers

    Potato casserole + ribs + burnt ends sandwich = best combo ever. I ate at this place during a road trip from Michigan to California. It was right along the way, and only a couple minutes from the I-80

    Its intense, but the Farm Boy is a must try. Expect it to feed 4-6 people. Its a pork tenderlioin with white gravey covered with spud sticks shredded cheese and bacon. Comes on a pizza pan.

    Was terrified at first sight of my burnt ends sandwich--large cubes of meat that I was sure would wear out my jaw long before I could finish it. I couldn't have been more wrong. Tender and tasty.

    Love the bbq ribs and smoked sausage. For sides, the cucumber and onion slaw and the mac and cheese. Cheese curds are good too.

    Only been there once, but less than impressed with the brisket and chopped pork. Very little smoke flavor in either of the meats. The sauces are excellent, and beans are quite good.

    Best BBQ joint in Des Moines in my opinion, and Des Moines has a lot of good ones.

    Get the brisket sandwich with spud sticks with ranch and an apple dumpling for dessert. Must use sassy sauce for brisket sandwich.

    Potato casserole. I haven't had one this good since the original IngerDahl's was razed to the ground. I'd eat this by the quart.

    Good potato cass! Try the fried pickles-pretty awesome! (Imagine fried jalepenos without the spice.) Very, very good!

    If you can tear yourself from the BBQ, the pulled pork nachos are incredible, and enough to feed six!

    Smoked Turkey is amazing. Big fan of the x-fiery BBQ sauce and baked beans as well. Their parking is terrible though.

    The chopped pork is what Jesus would eat if he wasn't Jewish.
