Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon. Weird place, although that is to be expected with a name like this. Nice building which was packed, but didnít have to wait too long. Selection is hard to score. There isnít a huge tap list, but some good stuff is on it, including Toppling Goliath and Confluence. The bottle list was pretty good too. Some really unique items on the menu, especially...the maccaroni burger. Fries were WAY too salty, but otherwise everything was good, and you get a lot for your money. Waiter was friendly and seemed to know something about beer. Overall, I like that the place has character, and is quirky and unique, but the whole zombie thing does come off as a little immature and tacky. Regardless, I still definitely recommend this place, and Iíll be back.

A solid overall beer selection, but the prices seemed a little high to me. While good beer can be had here, this is a place you visit for the good burgers and fries first, beer second. Worth a stop in if you are in the area. Looks clean and modern. Lots of options on the burgers and dogs which, despite the beer prices, are not priced any more than any other sit down burgers. Very good food. The zombie theme is just fun.

You can count me in as a believer. The joint officially opened up today and I headed down after work to see what the fuss was about. This place has good beer, not a whole ton of it... but plenty, and the beer menu was carefully thought out by someone who is either passionate or listening to folks who are. With a few geeky qualms the beer menu is pretty gosh darned well written and organized. I like Zombie movies in general but I figured the zombie decor would be corny, it is not... itís about as well done and nice looking as I could possibly imagine a zombie-themed restaurant could be. The burgers are the best in the city by quite a long shot, theyíre doing the gussied up burger thing right here at surprisingly low prices. The service we got on a very crowded opening night was fantastic, I genuinely felt like the staff was trying particularly hard to be helpful. The bar area is large and one could easily sit at the bar and just drink if thatís your fancy. If you come to Des Moines donít miss it, like I said... the beer selection is good, but donít expect any big surprises.
