Dine in with George
Serving good, quality food
So our customers keep coming back!
There’s nothing like a classic diner and drive-in to experience that old-fashioned American pastime: eating good food with good people. It’s even better when delicious classics like hamburgers, chili, and hot dogs are on the menu.
George The Chili King Drive-In has been serving great food in Des Moines, IA since 1952. We first opened as a diner and drive-in with carhop service, and that’s how we’ve remained all these years. Now, 61 years later, we are the only one left in the area!
Our food is available for:
Whether you want to stay a while and soak in the vintage vibe or just pick something up to bring back to your place, George The Chili King Drive-In can make it happen. Owner George Karaidos aims to please. After all, that’s how we’ve managed to remain in business all these years.
Come by and stay a while!
Our chili is truly one-of-a-kind. To get a taste of a Des Moines, IA area classic, drive in to George The Chili King Drive-In today!
