  • Best Place for Corned Beef Hash & Eggs!

  • Get the Everything Hashbrowns. You will die and go to hashbrown heaven.
  • This place has THE best breakfast. Period.
  • Cheap ass drinks and a great Cubbie bar!!
  • Mexi skillet is absolutely amazing..toast on the side? Probably the best breakfast spot in Des Moines..more than enough food for your money too..
  • Waveland's Mexi Best Skillet. It's delightful. Not pretty, not upscale, mediocre service and bad coffee. But I love it. LOVE it. Oh, and tiny - so be prepared to hang out and wait for a table.
  • The Lumberman is awesome, order it loaded (vegies and meat in the browns)
  • The Lumberman. Just get it
  • A half-order of the Breakfast Special is just right. They serve the best hashbrowns & ww toast!
  • One of the best breakfast in the metro. True diner experience
