Jethro’s ‘n Jake’s Smokehouse Steaks
Now in Altoona. Still at Drake. No Australian or Texan spoken here. These steaks are corn fed, Iowa raised, USDA Choice meat, hickory smoked over a campfire and broiled to perfection in our 1,600 degree Jethro’s ‘n Jake’s fire machine. This seals in the juices and flavors. All our steaks are seasoned with black pepper, salt and finished with a touch of smoked garlic butter.

Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse
Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse blends traditions of the past with the present and is reminiscent of the traditional 40s style supper clubs where everybody went for a good time and great food. The vintage prints on the walls, the exhibition kitchen, waiters in black pants and white shirts, floor-to-ceiling windows, large upholstered wooden booths and private seating invoke feelings of the past. Located in the Radisson Hotel, 6800 Fleur Drive, 287-0848; and in the Holiday Inn & Suites, 6075 Mills Civic Parkway, West Des Moines, 333-5665. www.johnnysitaliansteakhouse.com.
