Ankeny is a great city, and it is where The College Moving Crew is headquartered. If you are one of the many people who are moving into the area, we want to welcome you. We would also like to share with you a list of some of our favorite restaurants in the Ankeny area!
Jethro’s BBQ ‘n Lakehouse - Visit Website
Jethro’s is a popular Ankeny restaurant with a few other locations in the state of Iowa. They have plenty of seating, and are open until 9:00pm or 10:00pm each night of the week. They have their menu available online, so you don’t need to go there to find out if they have what you like. Jethro’s has a different special every night of the week, and also an eating challenge known as “The World Famous Adam Emmenecker”
Leaning Tower of Pizza - Visit Website
Another popular local restaurant is Leaning Tower of Pizza. Leaning Tower was started in Des Moines, but moved to Ankeny almost 50 years ago, and has been around ever since. They have award winning pizzas, and a variety of other menu items as well. Be sure to check them out.
Teriyaki House - Visit Website
A popular Asian restaurant with 3 locations in the state of Iowa is Teriyaki House. It is located on Delaware Ave. in Ankeny. They let you build your own Teriyaki Bowls by picking a protein, a “bowl”, and a dressing. They also have everything from sushi to New York Strip loins on their menu. Their staff is friendly, and would love to have you stop in for a meal!
Smokey D’s - Visit Website
If you want some undeniably good BBQ, Smokey D’s is the place for you. They have won multiple BBQ championships in their relatively short history. They have a few locations in the greater Des Moines area. Be careful though, it is unlikely that you will only want to eat there once.
Main Street Café and Bakery - Visit Website
Last but not least on our top restaurants list is Main Street Café and Bakery. They have a large menu of various pastas, sandwiches, burgers, breakfast items, melts, and salads. They are a relatively young business, but they got popular fast for a reason. The folks at Main Street Café and Bakery love serving the residents of Ankeny with food that looks and tastes great!
Hopefully this list of local restaurants is helpful to those who are new to the area. Once again if you have recently, or are planning on, moving to the Ankeny area, The College Moving Crew would like to extend a big welcome!
