King Smoke Texas Barbecue opened in West Des Moines about two weeks ago.

Why it matters: It adds another solid BBQ option to the metro's meat repertoire.

The menu: Smoked brisket, pulled pork, spare ribs and chicken are the main attractions.

  • Sandwiches, sides and a few southern-style desserts help round out the menu.

What Jason ate: "Chicky, chicky," a smoked chicken sandwich with Carolina BBQ sauce and a side of homemade chips and dip. A very satisfying lunch.

🍗 3701 EP True Parkway, #400, West Des Moines.

⏰ Hours: Daily from 11am-9pm, or until they sell out.
