I'm flying into Des Moines on the 27th and leaving on the 1st. The company address is Grimes so I'm assuming I'll be staying around there.

Any good places to eat I should check out?

I'll be there doing some consulting but I'm betting they make me a job offer.

One of the best BBQ Places in the country. Smoky D's.

Steak night at The Front Row Bar, across from the Willis Auto Campus. Great meal for under $15

Crossroads in Johnston to get your range time in.

The waterfront in clocktower square. Also the mandarin sushi bar and grill in west Des Moines. John and Nick's steak house in waukee. As far as bbq goes kue'd in waukee is probably the best I'm aware of.

There are some good places downtown Des Moines but i don't care to go there.

Thanks everyone. Depending on what they offer it's possible I will relocate

Trostel's Greenbriar.  High end but premium quality

Buzzard Billys
Interesting

Zombie Burger


Abelardo's Mexican Restaurant
CarneAsada plate

Caseys pizza. It’s an Iowa thing

Tasty Tacos.  (Puffy tacos)


Smitty's Tenderloin Shop 1401 Army Post Rd, Des Moines, IA 50315.  South side nest Airport

I’m cheap so I tend to do China buffet or Hy Vee grocery store Chinese or Ableardos Mexican food.  Mostly I just cook. Green briar is an exceptional dining experience had dinner there with Rick Perry (Texas former Gov)

If you move Johnston school dist or Ankeny if you have kids.

Thanks. Just my son and I. Middle school and 8th grade football is important. He enjoys playing football

It was a good trip. No formal offer was put on the table, but they do want me to work for them. I stayed in Grimes. Growing up a country kid in Wyoming I love how spread out everything is. Lots of fishing which my son and I enjoy doing. Way more of a small town vibe that here in Atlanta. If I don't move there I will probably return to Wyoming. My days are numbered here in Atlanta. We are starting middle school football now so it will probably be around November. Not sure when school football starts there.
