Maxie’s Restaurant And Lounge Has Been Serving Up The Best Burgers In Iowa Since 1967

Is there any better comfort food than a hamburger? Beefy, juicy, and enhanced with just about any topping you can think of, they can be found on just about any menu in the Hawkeye State. But who actually serves the best burger in Iowa? There are many strong candidates, but our favorite has got to be the iconic Maxie Burger at Maxie’s Restaurant & Lounge in West Des Moines. A mighty half-pound burger with all the fixings, grilled to order and served with fries and onion rings, it’s a classic burger, little changed since the restaurant opened in 1967 – until Maxie’s gets creative. Because every month, you can find a unique new burger with some of the craziest toppings anywhere. Do these combos work? Part of the fun is finding out, but you can count on one thing – there’ll be a great burger at the center each and every time.
