I'm planning a road trip to stay with family in Des Moines during the Iowa State Fair this summer, but I want to make sure I hit up the cool little food joints nearby, while I'm there. I'm on a budget, so I'm not interested in the big fancy stuff...I'm thinking more of those little hole-in-the-wall type places that you'd only know about if you lived in one of the little towns on 35 or 80. And I like all kinds of food, so type is no issue. Anything come to mind? I may make it up to Ames, too, so any suggestions up there would be more than appreciated.
Thank you much!
