People tend to check in during these times:
The lumber man with a side of bacon. Pretty much perfect
The foods great
Good tuna melt.
Try the lumberman and ask for the hash browns loaded with everything.
The small "Specialty Cakes" - note; 9" knife and pat of butter for perspective!
The finest breakfast in the whole U. S. of A!!!
EVERYTHING HASHBROWNS!!! She who must be Obeyed is having SPECIALTY CAKES in the Apple Cinnamon persuasion (as long as she can have as much of mine as she wants). I'm having two eggs & gravy on top!
Good home cooked breakfast and great french toast
What? Rate a place that wrote the book on breakfast. Now that's funny!
Everything hash browns may be the best potato based food that I've ever eaten!
Mexi best skillet
Breskfast is like at Grandma's. Like home.
Favorite treat when I'm visiting Des Moines!
Get here early or be prepared to wait in line
Hungry man. Go.
The owner is a Greenbay Packer fan!!! That made the foods taste 10 times better.
It's all good!
Can get a little crowded, but that's only because this is the best breakfast spot in the Des Moines area. Order the "Everything Hashbrowns", you won't regret it.
The Waveland, awesome food!
Best breakfast around!
Fast, reasonably priced and super tasty.... hit the spot! Thank you~
Cinnamon French toast is HEAVENLY!! Hot Chocolate with a shit ton of marshmallows makes any person happy! 😝😜
Worth the wait in line for Sunday breakfast!
Much more fun than breakfast at the Marriott.
Fabulous service !!!! Very fun and yummy
Best breakfast place in Des Moines that I have found. Waiting for a seat may be a little annoying but very much worth it in the end. Best biscuits and gravy!
Great loaded hash browns. Atmosphere reminds me of the 60's. All the politicos stop there when in Des Moines.
Best. Hash browns. Ever.
Leave Discover & Amex at home...cash, MC & Visa only.
Get the Everything Hashbrowns. You will die and go to hashbrown heaven.
Breakfast all day as well as an array of lunch items.
Mexi skillet is absolutely amazing..toast on the side? Probably the best breakfast spot in Des Moines..more than enough food for your money too..
Take it from a former diner waitress-their plate-sized pancakes are on point.
Look at the Waveland coffee cups. Some say Est. 1982 others say Est. 1984. Welcome to Waveland.
Waveland's Mexi Best Skillet. It's delightful. Not pretty, not upscale, mediocre service and bad coffee. But I love it. LOVE it. Oh, and tiny - so be prepared to hang out and wait for a table.
Stop #2 on St. Practice Day 2012!
Best breakfast spot in Des Moines with out a doubt. If you are looking for a hip and trendy place, go somewhere else. This place is all about the food. Best hash-browns you will ever have.
Get the Waveland's Best Skillet.
This place has THE best breakfast. Period.
The Veggie Skillet is the best!!!
The Lumberman is awesome, order it loaded (vegies and meat in the browns)
Don't expect food. They have bags of delicious chips, however.
Rory can't dance
Be on the lookout for C-SPAN/Waveland coffee mugs!
Try the Lumberman and get the hashbrowns fully loaded
Protein omelette, with Bacon!
One of the best places for breakfast in Des Moines. Whatever you end up getting, be sure that it includes hashbrowns. Evan[Bu] recommends the bacon and sausage omelet. Wow, even the toast is tasty!
