Abelardos Mexican Restaurant in Des Moines Iowa.
Abelardos is a chain that began in Omaha that combines fast food efficiency and service with Mexican taqueria style food. Their kitchens make all the taco toppings and salsas on site and they serve burritos from their drive through 24 hours on Ingersoll. They keep expanding and have a proven record of turning failed fast food franchise buildings into successful taquerias in the suburbs and inner city. Be sure to grab an Abelardos bumper sticker to show your taco pride.

Specialties: The menu is huge but I usually go with the adobado plate, chorizo plate, or machaca plate. The tacos are piled high with huge portions of meat.
