“Healthy food, lots of choices, decent prices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013 via mobile

Daily specials, a large selection of cold salads and custom salads as well as soups and sandwiches pepper the menu at this busy little deli. The location has ample seating, but gets very busy right at noon and can be a little loud if you're trying to hold a business lunch or working meeting during lunch hour.

They do offer catering and take out as well as delivery and Internet ordering, but there's a minimum order requirement for delivery orders so keep that in mind.

“Kosher Stacked”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

Palmer's Deli & Market makes a sandwich, well, a sandwich! They pile on the deli meat and do not skimp on the condiments, ingredients are always fresh and the soup is full bodied and rich tasting. Well worth the money!

“Good Food, but Unfriendly Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

I go to the Palmer's on 50th in West Des Moines quite frequently for lunch. The food is always fresh and delicious --- a tad pricey, but I'll pay more for quality. My gripe with the place is the unsmiling, borderline rude staff. There is only one woman I've encountered that is somewhat friendly behind the cash register. The rest look like they hate their jobs and would rather be somewhere else. I notice this EVERY time I eat there. You would think you were in NYC, not "nice" Iowa!

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

Salad bar CANNOT be beat! Simply the best salad you will ever eat because you can choose the way it is made. Mixed in dressing makes every bite worth taking. Their chili is PHENOMENAL. They offer you additives for it,as well...Including sour cream! How wonderful.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

This is a place where you order and take out or eat there. It has great salads, sandwiches, soups, as well as food available to take hoe for dinner. It is not a luxury dining experience but great food for a deli!
