Any recommendations for a family-friendly restaurant in/around DM that is NOT a chain?

Re: non-chain, family-friendly restaurant?

  • What kind of cuisine are you thinking?

    Paradise Pizza? It's sort of an Italian restaurant that makes pizza too. They also have crock pizzas. yum!

    Nobody said life would be easy. Just that it would be worth it.

  • Nana's in Urbandale on 100th?  Zuzap for Thai.  Paradise Pizza is a good suggestion from Mrs. Reem.  I haven't been there in ages, but sounds good.
