Reviews for Jethro's BBQ

Went here with colleagues from work. Food was okay. Service was okay. We had to wait a long time for our food. I had the boss hog sandwich. It was good. Waffle fries were okay. I suspect my food sat a bit while other orders were being taken out. Not a big deal, just a so-so experience.

I took my fiancé and son to Jethro’s BBQ & Jambalaya on Mother’s Day. She was looking forward to wings and so she ordered boneless wings. They came stringy and had a very terrible taste. One that’s hard to describe. My meal was platter. Most was burnt, some was undercooked. We notified the waitress. Management made rude remarks. We still paid for our son’s hamburger and mashed potatoes and our pops. (Around $25 for his meal and 2 pops). When we got home which is full review

We were traveling through Des Moines from Colorado to Michigan and needed a place to eat. Jethros came up in the "fried chicken Des Moines" search and we were not disappointed. Highly recommend this place for those traveling through and needing quick takeout that isn't fast food. If we had more time, we would have loved to stay—seemed like a really cool, laid back atmosphere. Will be visiting again the next time we're in Des Moines!
