I love this place I have eaten at both locations, in the east village of DSM and at the Jordan creek mall location. I like the variety of burgers. I never get a bun and they always place it on a bed of lettuce, it is like getting a free salad. the burgers are hot and juicy. a very good... More

So, we drove to downtown Des Moines and hit one of our favs. We ordered all our favorites, burgers, cheese curds, fries, Walking Ched Buns and of course,... More

Went here with some friends one night while visiting the area. The menu is printed on the back of a fake zombie newspaper which was pretty cool. There burgers are each named after a perticular zombie movie. They also have alcoholic and non alcoholic shakes that have cereal ingredients in them which is a fantastic idea and they taste great....

Went with friends and to start it was confusing of where to go to get seated. Got seated finally, placed order with unfriendly waitress for a cheeseburger, fries, and shake, which sorry I can't remember exact name but sounded yummy. Waited extreme long time for our food, no apologies given. My burger was barely warm and definitely nothing special. The... More

Zombie burger has the best blend of beef in their burgers. Always good food and good service. I eat there for business lunches atleast twice a month. Everyone that goes with me enjoys the burgers as much as I do. Stop here and you won't be disappointed!!!

I've been to both locations. DSM & West DSM. Truthfully, another burger joint w/zombie names. Nothing to write home about & not bad either

I really enjoyed Zombie Burger. I'm a huge Walking Dead fan and as I understand it this place was around long before TWD was a popular TV show. They have a ton of different burger choices but I landed on the "East Village of the Damned". Order this with fries for sure because as my very helpful waitress suggested, when... More
