Antojitos Mexicanos DF restaurant in Des Moines, Iowa
Antojito Mexicanos opened up as a truck at the Tianguis flea market in 2015 or earlier. Then they were parked on Hubbel Ave. beside Kathy’s Depot, then in a car lot on SE 14th St. Now they have a physical location.
Location: 4100 SW 9th St, in a southside building that once housed a tenderloin place, a Maid Rite, and an Abelardos franchise.
