F&O's is the only place in Des Moines serving genuine Chicago-style deep dish: a mountain of cheese hidden under great sauce, on top of a made-fresh risen dough thick crust. Yum, nothing like it! They also surprised us with traditional thin crust pizza. My friend's looked (and tasted) amazing. So fresh!
If you want an outstanding pizza, try Felix and Oscars. This is the only pizza place in Des Moines where we order a thick crust pizza. The thin crust pizza they offer is good as well. We prefer the Merle Hay location, most of the staff has been with the owner for years, and there is something to be said for loyalty. Good salads also, be sure and try the creamy parmesan.

There are probably one a couple of good places to eat pizza in this town. Felix and Oscars is one of them. I travel all over the country eating out and unless you want some idiot throwing freeze dried toppings on machine made dough this is it. Forget about service or a pizza nazi, put up with it. They've made one way for more than 30 years in the same location. Doesn't matter what the price is either. nuff said

We have been to the Felix and Oscars on Merle Hay 2 times now and will NOT be going back!! Both times we waited forever for service and this time we ordered the pizza that everyone raves about. We were the only one's there and it took 45 min to get a med pizza and it was not even hot ! :( The waitress did more talking on the phone than she did waiting tables....and from the looks of things she needed to be spending some time cleaning.
Our table had dried food on it, the booth had crumbs all over, there was pop or something splashed all over the walls that never for cleaned.....yuck!!!!!!!!!!!! NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

This is my favorite deep dish pizza!!! Most often I have it delivered - I'm a regular. Extra, extra tomato sauce makes the sausage & mushroom perfect. I love the slightly sweet tomato sauce. The crust is thick, but crispy. I've tried lots of others & was disappointed, this is the best.
If you're a fan of Chicago style deep dish you will love F&Os. I personally prefer the outstanding chicken wings. The meat falls right off the bone and comes with hot sauce and ranch to add to your preference. Really, the chicken doesn't need the dipping sauces but it's still a pleasent touch.
