    I also 2nd Big Jake on Darrell’s place in Hamlin….. they have the best ternderloins I’ve ever had, and it’s not even close. I grew up around there, now in DM, and can’t order tenderloins anywhere around here cause they don’t come anywhere near that place…. they are amazing!! now I’m getting hungry…. 🙂

    That’s a hard one to top, can’t even come close at home. Loin, fries, and a cold one or two makes one heck of a meal.

    Had the OTHO LOADED POTATOES AND IT WAS NOT WORTH IT. YEAH THEY GIVE YOU ALOT, BUT MAYBE SINCE YOU CAN NOT SMOKE NOW IT”S OKAY. THE JOINT WAS REAL SMOKY AND THE HASBROWNS WERE JUST DRENCHED WITH YUCKY BUTTER. NO VOTE FOR OTHO. QUANITY DOES NOT MEAN QUALITY.!!!!! ROBERT

    I’ll have to road trip over there from Ames someday soon. Are they open normal restaurant hours? 11-9pm? M-Sat?

    It is open normal hours… not sure if they are open Monday’s or Sunday’s though…. I think they are even open for breakfast
    You definitely will not be disappointed!

    I dont care for the food that much(its just okay) but the waveland cafe by roosevelt high school in Des moines, made the top 10 cafes in the country my senior year.2002. just to throw that out there. And the shrimp club sandwich from the cheesecake factory made top ten sandwiches in the country.

    The Duck Stop in Mallard is a pretty good place to stop for a burger. Used to have a real cute girl waitressing, but that’s been 6 or 7 years ago.

    Did you ever eat at Merle’s East Side Lounge? I couldn’t do it but we bought several kegs of Old Style from him.

    Many times! He made a great tenderloin, even if the place was a dive. When I was working, a lot of times I’d call him for my order, then pick it up at the back door.

    DK Don’t go back! A lot can change in 6 0r 7 years both the food and the waitress. Just keep it in your dreams. Speaking from experience. 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

    Gunderburger still the best burger. Big John’s in Bode & Mt. Sterling tenderloins worth driving out of your way for. Woody’s in Esterville for thin crust pizza. For breakfast try behind the bowling alley in Spirit Lake

    Darryl’s in Hamlin, Iowa owned by a 75 year old man that gets up every morning and makes them him self. Others can claim that they have the best tenderloins, but they would be lying. They are AWESOME…………..
