Amazing Meals

Posted August 08, 2012 in Community Featured, West Des Moines

The other day, I was hungry and in the mood for a great burger. Dragging my family out of the house, we eventually decided to try out Fuddruckers, which is known for its big, juicy burgers.

The Chipotle BBQ Sandwich with onion rings and a drink at Fuddruckers.

Once we arrived, I was impressed with the layout of the restaurant and the uniqueness of the system. First, there is a display case of all the choices of meat that are on the menu. In their raw form, of course; I had never seen this type of display. As we rounded the corner, we walked up to the counter where we were able to order and pay before we even found a place to sit. They gave us a buzzer that would alert us when our meals were ready.

My husband chose the half-pound burger with fries and a soda. As I perused all the burger, chicken, hot dog and salad choices, I decided a chicken sandwich sounded great. I finally ordered the Chipotle BBQ Sandwich and made it a combo with onion rings and a soda. I also noted the bakery display case behind us and made a mental note to revisit that later.

As we sat down in a cushy booth in the dimly-lit dining room, I was interested in how many places there were to sit. There were lots of tables, but more importantly, there were tables and booths set in lit corners that each had a theme. One corner had a Harley-Davidson theme with pictures and memorabilia covering the walls and another was themed in Beatles décor. There was also a large party room that would be great for a big group.

When our food arrived, I started in on my onion rings which were warm, seasoned and perfectly crunchy. I loaded my plate at the condiments counter with extra BBQ sauce, ketchup and creamy ranch before I cut my large chicken sandwich in half and took a bite. It was juicy, warm, flavorful and had crisp bacon on top. The barbecue sauce was a perfect touch to an already amazing sandwich.

My husband’s meal was gone before I could get a good look at it, but that’s usually a good sign. He even grabbed me a delicious brownie from the bakery counter and a chocolate shake to top off our wonderful meal. I was stuffed but happy. I think we will be back.
