South-Side Treat!

You can’t miss this red building when driving down SW 9th street. If you’re downtown, just head south and you’ll see it!

The patio on the north side of the building is covered, breezy, and delightful! If you’ve been to Angry Goldfish or already heard about them then you probably already know that they’re known for their huge, delicious burgers. They did not disappoint!

Parking was easy – there is a lot behind the building. If that lot is full then you can park across the street (it’s easy to find and marked with signs). SW 9th is pretty busy, but we found it easy and safe to cross with no issues.

You can check out their menu and daily specials on their website.

Thank you for the delicious meal and amazing service, Angry Goldfish!

What a fun hangout! Stop in before 6pm for happy hour … get there early, it gets crowded fast. And for good reason – the atmosphere is fun and the food is amazing (we loved the Garlic Fries appetizer). Teddy Maroon’s is self-described as …

“The name “Teddy Maroon’s” is a playful nod to Dowling and Roosevelt High Schools. For generations, Des Moines’s west side has been a major melting pot of families from both schools. “Teddy” (a reference to Theodore Roosevelt) “Maroons” (Dowling’s mascot) represents a long tradition of friendship and the fun-loving rivalry centered on Ingersoll Avenue.”

Fun Ingersoll Location, With Parking in the Back

Parking is super easy with a lot directly behind the building. Just ask to have your ticket validated before you leave (max 2 hours).

You’ll find delicious menu items like the “Teddy Brosevelt” and fun drink selections like the “Corpse Reviver”. Check out their website to see all menu items. Below, Derek, one of their bartenders crafts a delicious drink…

We already have a list of menu items we want to try when we go back!! If you haven’t been there, be sure to stop in for happy hour or make a reservation for dinner. You won’t be disappointed!

Thank you for the great service, Teddy Maroon’s!
