We ahve been going to Palmer's Deli for over 15 years. We've moved away, but every trip to Des Moines brings us back for the Apple Orchard sandwich, Frog Eye Salad, and Trees and Raisins. Fresh, consistent, delicious. Palmer's will not disappoint!

Great place to meet friends or for business. Can get pretty busy over lunch, so I usually go a little early or a bit after the rush. Excellent variety, and everything is always good. You cannot go wrong here.

I routinely go to Palmer's twice a month. I've considered that maybe I'm in a rut but honestly it's because the quality of the products and level of customer service is consistently high.

If you are looking for a local, small business to support...this is a safe, fresh place to start! Love that they have multiple locations now throughout the Des Moines area.

What a treat to find this gem so close to my new place of work. Terrific place for lunch - just wish they stayed open later, so I could have dinner there too.

Consistently tasty salads, sandwiches and soups. The turkey, cranberry, cream cheese sandwich is to die for and their chicken salad is the best around. Top it all off with a scrumptious brownie. Yum.

I have lived in the Des Moines area for over 2 years and never experienced Palmers. What a mistake !! I love this place and all the options they offer for lunch. I will definitely return many times in the future. Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed.
