  • Look for the FOOOOOOD
  • My favorite bar in the whole world....
  • Darts. Love the darts here.
  • Don't use their bathrooms. They'd prefer you to pee on the floor.
  • Hang out at Carl's and play some darts...or carve your name on...well, anything
  • Awesome, relaxed place! Just remember not to smoke out in the front. The neighbors like the noise.
  • Best dive bar in des Moines. Not for the weak suburbanites, however. Stick to west Glen if you want a "classy" bar. Tip your bartenders well and you'll get better service. Duh.
  • If they have donation chili, get in the game son.
  • Is there a better dive in DSM?!? If ya haven't been.... You're dumb.
  • Them balls are HOT! Careful now.
  • Amazing bartenders, acceptable bathrooms. The mens is ladies friendly. Best bar. You should go elsewhere.
  • Best bar in town!!!! Wonderful random fun crowd. Jimmy, one of the owners, is awesome huggable Tigger:]
  • Hole in the wall, but great. Neat, up and coming area of the city.
  • Great neighborhood dive bar!
  • So if you're not s regular they give you the stank eye and treat you like shit. Great business...
  • Great dive bar!
  • This place is like the party from the movie Super Bad.
  • Tip big. Treat my boys well.
  • Go on Thursday or Friday night and tell Scott (the bartender) Lance sent ya
  • Go on Monday nights during football season for free chili.
