This past April I joined my co-author, and sister, Kerrie Adams in Iowa to visit family roots. We all know Iowa is famous for its corn and corn-fed beef but they also serve up some mean Zombilicious food.
We had occasion to visit such a place in Des Moines,Iowa-on the east side, namely the “Zombie Burger + Drink Lab“.
The zombie themed restaurant and menu was great fun. It was a college crowd with an appetite for goreMet bashed burgers and shakes.. The place was nicely decorated zombie themed murals and mannequins. It was divided into two halves one having tables and a full bar with some unique beers and drinks.
The menu was not just burgers but that was the main fair all having themed names and not your ordinary ingredients.
I had a #10 a “Walking Ched”. Breaded and deep-fried mac-n-cheese “buns. These were deep-fried mac-n-cheese “patties ” serving as the bun for a great burger with caramelized red onions cheddar cheeses and mac-n-cheese on top. TO DIE FOR!!! Kerrie had “The Broomstick” It was a burger stuffed with deep-fried chili topped with american cheese, red onions and pickle. It didn’t take very long to consume being so delicious.
Again burgers were not the only fair.. there were soylent greens (salads),brain freezes(shakes),New Jersey Rippers (deep-fried hot dogs),appetizers and soups/sides.
We both had different unique shakes. Kerrie went for a vanilla ice cream, cherry kool aid powder blended with a twinkie.. YUMMY! I had vanilla ice cream blended with Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It was superb!! Great Brain Freezes!
There was a wide array of local breweries and mixed drinks, properly titled, to try.
Next time your in Des Moines Iowa’s east side drop in to enjoy the atmosphere and food.
Get a load of some of those names.
