Hot Spot: Jethro's BBQ Ankeny

Our latest Hot Spot is Jethros BBQ in Ankeny, located at 1425 S.W. Vintage Parkway, it’s the perfect BBQ joint.  For those of you who don’t know Jethros was featured on the poplar foodie show, Man V.S. Food.  Adam Richman of Man V.S. Food came all the way to Iowa to attempt the famous Adam Emmenecker Challenge.  The challenge consists of made up of a cheese burger, applewood smoked bacon, Texas brisket, fried cheese cubes, buffalo chicken tenders, pork tenderloin, a delicious bun topped with a spicy pickle, and did I mention a POUND of waffle fries.  If consuming this monstrous meal in one sitting isn’t enough, you only have 15 minutes to complete the challenge. 
Try your luck at the Emmenecker challenge! 

Jethro's is getting rave reviews! Hear what people are saying about it:
