Is anyone familiar with the Iowa's Best Burger Cafe' & Kellogg RV Park? I passed it (I-80) over the weekend but due to a lack of time and available stomach space I didn't get the chance to stop. I'll be back in Iowa in 3 months; is it worth a try? Thanks!

    Picture?

    Better than Iowa's Gunderburger?

    Anyone had both?

      I've eaten there and it's a pretty good burger, but I don't know about the best in Iowa. In my opinion, the Hamburg Inn #2 in Iowa City and Slugger's in Coralville have better ones.

      The Iowa's Best Burger is one that you could have gotten in thousands of good small restuarants 50 years ago, but you don't see much of now. I'd discribe it as old fashioned. It tasted fresh and the place was pretty busy.

        I haven't been in Iowa in 30 years, so I really have no business commenting on this place, but I do like to check out restaurant websites. To tell you the truth, if the picture of the burger is a picture of one of their actual burgers: 1) the bun looks like it's from a restaurant service pack of nondescript buns, and 2)the fries look pre fab. It would not entice me to go there.

        And if it's not a picture of one of thier actual bugers, they need to get their money back from whoever designed the website.

          "Grill open 7 days a week
          from 11AM until 9:50PM"


          9:50pm? That's different!

            I am going past Iowa's Best Burger Cafe tomorrow. I'll try to stop in and have both the burger & tenderloin & report back.

            I ate there several years before & recollect that the burger was cooked on a conveyor belt over a gas flame.

              where i lived to suffer through school, there is a hippy cafe that has hours that go from somthing like:

              9:12am - 3:47pm

              and changes similarly on weekends.

              ftw?

                I would guess that it's worth a try, after all.....is there such a think as a BAD piece of meat in Iowa?? I was just there in January in the Sioux City-Le Mars area and had fabulous burgers, steaks, Iowa pork chops and pork tenderloin sandwiches. Also not too shabby in that neck of the woods is Bob's Bar in Martinsburg, Nebraska and Bob's in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

                  See, now THIS part of the country is burger territory. Certainly not Southern California or LA as some locals who really wanna "signature roadfood item" may lead others to believe
