Zombie Burger

When you have three boys and a...

When you have three boys and a restaurant named Zombie Burger opens up nearby, you're automatically required to check it out. So I was excited when the opportunity arose to take my 10-year-old and his friend there before an arena football game. Needless to say, they were dying to go (insert drum and cymbal crash here). We arrived about 4:30 p.m. on a Saturday and weren't surprised when the host said we'd have about a 20-minute wait. Although the lobby was extremely crowded with other waiting guests, there were plenty of seats and tables available outside. Instead of getting one of those annoying buzzers that always make me jump out of my skin when they go off, I gave the host my cell phone number, and I received a text when our table was ready, which was about 10 minutes earlier than they'd anticipated. Bonus. We were seated at a table on the patio, and I was a little bit bummed that we wouldn't be able to check out all of the fun and gory zombie murals inside. But we could still see some of them through the window, and the menu and children's activity menu provided enough fodder for our zombie fix. The "Eat burgers, not brains" slogan, zombie jokes (What is a zombie's favorite street? A dead end!) and draw-your-own-zombie-hand-coming-out-of-the-ground activity made the children's menu the coolest one I'd ever seen. The boys were in bloody heaven. Deciding what to order was next. Known for their burgers, I didn't want to order a salad or sandwich, and I perused the list of choices, including the Juan of the Dead, T-Virus and They're Coming to Get You Barbara burgers. I ordered the "La Horde," a burger with goat cheese, bacon, caramelized onion and mayo, and my son chose the restaurant's namesake, the Zombie Burger, which comes with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and Zombie Sauce. The burgers came with their house hand-cut fries. My burger was cooked exactly the way I like it, and the flavors of the goat cheese, bacon and carmalized onion enhanced the delicious beef burger. We were so full, we didn't have room for one of their Brain Freeze shakes. We'll have to save that for next time. The prices were similar to other upscale burger joints in Des Moines, and for us the atmosphere and fun added even more to the value. As soon as we left, I received another text thanking us for eating there and offering to add us to the text list for coupons and specials. Those zombies may be ugly, but they sure know how to run a restaurant.

Falbo Bros Pizzeria

The previous post is a complete twisting of the facts. this employee was fired for a multitude of reasons, which will not be mentioned here. He was not refused pay, but was asked to explain what happened to missing cash drops before he was handed a check. This employee stormed out and made personal threats of bodily harm, and did not wait to get his check. All of our employees are and always have been paid. The ex-employee's mom was asked to leave because she cannot be part of the employee (or ex-employee) and employer conversation legally, as the former employee is 27 years old and not a minor. Not long after, it was discovered the ex-employee also lied on his application. This person and his mother have taken to a internet smear campaign to intentionally hurt us financially, and have unfortunately done so fairly successfully, but not rightfuilly so. His wages were submitted to Iowa Workforce Development over 30 day ago after he failed to claim them, and neither he or his mother has made any attempt to correct any of their negative actions on the internet. Things like this kill small businesses, and this will cost 12 people their jobs if not corrected, and a loss of close to $200,000 invested in this business. It's a shame really that this gentleman can't right his inequities, nor can his mother, after doing so much wrong.

Perkins Restaurant & Bakery

Food's good but staff is short

I don't mean short as in "not tall." I mean short as in "they need at least 2 more people working on any given day to get the customers taken care of." I know these places are all sensitive to costs, but if I walk out because I can't get waited on, that's money that goes somewhere else. Having said that, I really like Perkin's menu--the breakfasts, the open-faced hot roast beef, the big salads, the muffins, etc. If you don't mind slow service, it's a good chain.
