You have got to try this place! The sandwiches are to die for and John and the crew are the nicest ever. Oh and the bacon??? My husband and 4 year old won't touch bacon from anywhere else ever again!!! Te meat bundles are a killer deal too for those on a budget! for about $200 a month this family of four can eat high on the hog (and cow also some chicken lol) for an entire month! The best sandwich? My 4 year old says its the pork tenderloin, I say it's a Zach's killer, GF says Dad's killer, and hubby says a Quadzilla ( a monster 4 beef patty cheeseburger!!). So come on down and try a killer sandwich and if you are truly brave, ask about the Killossal!

Good job guys every time I come to des Moines I'll be seeing you

Best Hot Italian Sausage Sandwich Ever!

I moved away from Des Moines almost 2 years ago. Whenever I come back I always go to B&B Grocery to get their hot italian sausage sandwich. Grilled italian sausage with melted cheese on italian bread...makes my mouth water just thinking about it. You really have to go there to know what I'm talking about.

The best thing for me now that I live in Minnesota is that they sell their italian sausage at their meat counter. There's nothing like their sausage in Minnesota. I usually buy 20 pounds to take home with me. In fact, I'm getting low. Must be time for a trip to Des Moines and more importantly to B&B Grocery.

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.

This is what a store should be...

When you walk in to B&B it is like walking into the past. They have great food, great meat, and great service. The first time I walked in they treated me like I'd been there 100 times before. I went to try their sandwiches. I had their Dad's Killer. Let's just say I saved half for later. Great sandwich. I highly suggest you buy meat at B&B. The first time I bought steaks I wanted some good thick t-bones to grill. I couldn't believe it. They cut perfect steaks right in front of me. I wish there were more places like this one in Des Moines.

Dad's Killer lived up to it's name!!!

I went to B&B after learning their Dad's Killer sandwich was voted as Des Moines Best Deli Sandwich. I ordered one. It was made fresh right in front of me. I couldn't believe the size of it. It was a great sandwich!!! The atmosphere at this place is great. There needs to be more places like this in Des Moines!!!
