Juneann Reed wrote an article titled “Three Best Hamburger Joints in Des Moines, Iowa” where she listed B&B Grocery, Meat & Deli as one of the top three.  Here’s what she had to say about B&B:

“B&B Grocery, Meat & Deli is widely regarded as one of Des Moines’ best places to eat. In 2008, the readers of the Des Moines Register voted B&B’s Dad’s Killer Sandwich as the best deli sandwich in town. For phone order dial 515-243-7607

Hamburgers are inexpensive and very, very tasty. They are served on fresh home made buns. B&B is truly a down-home tiny neighborhood store located on the south side of Des Moines. The Italian family that began this place, continues to have a hand in the current operations. Side dishes from their deli are to die for and you will be full when you finish this tasty hamburger and side treat. You can order from a variety of different sizes and choices or place a special order and you will be pleased at this special Des Moines’ hamburger joint.

Indeed, B&B Grocery is a best kept secret on the local Des Moines scene. You will be pleased also with their Italian meat choices, breads and many other deli specialties.”
