ABOUT CURBIN' CUISINE...
Jarrod and Misty Fontanini reside near Saylorville Lake. They started Curbin' Cuisine in May 2013 with just a food cart at the Beaverdale Farmer's Market and Beaverdale Fall Festival. Over the next several years, Curbin' Cuisine grew more popular and was repeatedly requested by numerous businesses & event coordinators in Des Moines and in surrounding towns. In January 2015 they expanded their business to a fully equipped Food Truck. In 2018 & 2019 they were voted into the Top Three Best of the Best Food Trucks by City View's Annual Reader's Poll. In June 2019 Jarrod was selected to be apart of the CFN (Culinary Fight Night) event at the Des Moines Social Club. He went head to head with four other esteemed Chefs from the 515.
In October 2019 their dream to have a brick & mortar became a reality. The Fontanini's sold their food truck and returned "home" to Beaverdale where it all began. Opening a few short months before COVID, Curbin' Cuisine adapted to the ever changing restaurant world and overcome several challenges. Curbin' was voted Best New Restaurant in 2020 and Best Restaurant for Take Out in 2021. Best Sandwiches, Best Local Area Restaurant, Best Cheap Eats & Best Lunch Spot of 2023. Owner Misty Fontanini was named one of the top 40 Women to Watch in the Hospitality Industry by the Iowa Restaurant Association in 2020.
In January 2024 Curbin' Cuisine moved to Ankeny IA into a bigger restaurant with a drive through for easy customer accessibility. Food is as much about the moment, the occasion and the location as it is about the taste!
