Last week, our family went to Cactus Bob‘s, a local BBQ place on Merle Hay in Johnston. It was pretty good. I thought it was quite a bit better than, say, Famous Dave’s, but Randy wasn’t convinced. I liked the set-up, with counter service and then two dining areas. Their french fries were really, really, really good. Here’s another blog post about them from Des Loines.
This afternoon, I visited Kwong Tung on Ingersoll with some friends who were lunching there. Though it was a little crazy with six kids and three mommies, the staff didn’t seem too peturbed. The food was good for what it was. It definitely isn’t my favorite Asian restaurant in the city, but it wasn’t bad at all. Inexpensive. Wally and I ate pot stickers and lo mein for about $6.
