Discover Southwest Iowa

The southwest region of Iowa is home to an array of eateries that prepare, cook and serve Asian food, diner favorites, deli items and healthy cuisine. Because barbecue is a popular food in Iowa, you can get saucy, slow-roasted meats in a variety of ways in different neighborhoods. If you're an Asian spice fan, you'll enjoy eating the Chinese and Korean BBQ dishes in the region. The diner food that's prepared in the cities of the southwestern portion of the state is very filling, and most diner menus feature meatloaf sandwiches and steak that's served with vegetables as particular regional favorites. If you want veggies on a sandwich, you can try an area deli for fresh options. At most delis, the sandwiches are served with a hot soup of the day. When everyone craves healthy food, try a new American restaurant featuring roasted Brussels sprouts, fresh seafood and crisp salads.
