B&B has to be the best place in Des Moines
I was introduced to B&B Grocery & Deli by a friend of mine. I was told that you can't find a better deli sandwich than what you'll get at B&B.
When you first enter Macklind Avenue Deli, you immediately notice the walls are decorated with sports memorabilia. Baseball, football, and boxing, it's all there. You then realize that you've been transported back to a time when butcher shops were part of a neighborhood. For decades people went to the place for milk, bread, eggs, and more. Now, the grocery store has become a fantastic deli and butcher shop. It's hard not to feel the passion the staff have for the meat market and deli.
I went in to B&B to buy a sandwich and left with some of the best steaks I've ever bought. The butchers at B&B will cut a steak anyway you want it. I've been back to buy steaks many times now and haven't been let down not once.
As for their deli sandwiches, they're unbelievable. I've been told that they were named for having the best deli sandwich in Des Moines. I believe it. The only thing I can't figure out is what sandwich is the best. They're all great. I tend to favor their grilled rib-eye sandwich and their breaded pork tenderloin. Very tasty!
Anyone visiting Des Moines should visit B&B. This is a hidden jewel in Des Moines, and my only regret is not discovering B&B sooner.
