Palmers in a great local deli that is one of the best. They have a great selection of sandwiches salads and so much more. Easy to get in and out quick or just have a good lunch with family or friends. They also do catering which is great.

The menu has excellent sandwich and salad choices and the food is always fresh. Try the made to order chopped salads or my favorite the hot pastrami.

This place never disappoints! Always fresh, alway friendly, always good. Best Deli in the metro! We have used them several times to cater events. Graduations, holiday's, birthday's we can count on Palmer's to make our event a success.

By far the best deli I have been to in a long time. Fast service even with long lines and really amazing food. I highly recommend the peanut butter chocolate chip cookies which are soft and tasty. Highly recommend this place to anyone.

I love Palmer's. I have business lunch meetings at one of the locations one or more times a week. I have a breakfast club that meets at Palmer's every Tuesday morning. The breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon and toast is huge and beautiful. The lunch sandwiches have a large portion of meat on a bun or two thick slices... More

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!
