I made myself sick this evening. I don't care. I had been planning this for a very, very long time.
Zombie Burger opened yesterday in downtown Des Moines. There are twenty-one burgers on the menu, and I plan on trying them all. Will this shave a year off my life? Most likely. Will this make some of my days a bit less enjoyable? Most certainly. Is it worth it? Most definitely!
The line was nearly out the door when we arrived. It took about 20-30 minutes to get our order in, but we didn't mind since there's a lot of neat stuff to look at in the restaurant.
The menu is duct taped to chipboard... awesome!
For my meal, I ordered a double-tap Boomstick and fries. Two burger patties, deep-fried chili, American cheese, onions and pickles. Just look at this mother...
Steve's eyes were bigger than his stomach, because he ordered Zombie Poutine, a double-tap Flamethrower and the Mushroom Apocalypse.
Behold, the Zombie Poutine. Fries, topped with cheese curds and gravy.
And the Flamethrower. Two burger patties, buffalo sauce, blue cheese, onion rings and ranch mayo.
The Mushroom Apocalypse. This is not a burger - it's a breaded mushroom and cheese croquette, lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo. Holy moly.
We tried to order a Tallahassee shake, but by the time we'd arrived they had run out of vanilla ice cream. So we got a S'more shake. It was good, but not something we could take a photo of and make it look half as good as it tasted.
The bathroom signs are super cute.
Conclusion? Excellent. Amazing. An experience of epically undead proportions. Next time you're in Des Moines, go stuff your face at Zombie Burger. You will not be disappointed!
