This is the 2 times that they have either forgot food or they don’t give me what I ordered and when you try to call they don’t answer the phone I was just there and there was 5 people in !! No customer service !!! Then the first time they tried making me pay for the food that I all ready payed for WOW

Little John's has been a north Des Moines icon for at least thirty five years now. Not untill recently did they close the Diary Queen around the corner and moved everything into the restaurant. If you want ice cream and something fried; whether it be tenderloins or cheese balls... this is your true one and only place to get it done right... Thank You Little John's for being for being a proud part of the North Des Moines/ Highland Park community.

Saddened to be leaving the neighborhood that's so closeby to LJ's! Their tenderloin and onion rings are the ? bomb! ? great burgers, and LOVE their polar freezes in the summertime! (wish they still had lemon/lime though ?) The prices are good, and the kids that work there are friendly (as are the owners)Goodbye LJ's, I hope to visit you again soon, and thanks for being a part of my neighborhood life for 3 years! ❤ ? ?
