Iowa City Downtown Dining

Whether you're looking for amazing food, engaging conversation, interesting events or unique entertainment, you will find it in downtown Iowa City.

The “dine local” movement characterizes the culture of Iowa City and strengthens the local economy…one bite at a time.

Patrick Rashed, who owns Caribbean Kitchen, and serves at the IC farmers market during the summer will be parking his food truck in front of D.P. Dough this Thursday. If you haven't tried the CK food truck menu you're in for a treat. Every single item on the menu is wonderful, but while some favor his BBQ and Jerk, I believe his gumbo is some of the finest I've ever had. In the past I've sold a Ya Mon calzone featuring CK's jerk chicken. We'll be putting it back on the menu Thursday as well.

Below is the menu:

Caribbean Gumbo $7
sausage and chicken gumbo serve with rice and beans

Jerk Chicken Sandwich $8
Grilled jerk chicken, bacon, swiss, ranch, served on a toasted hoagie bun

Dear fellow Iowans, we want to thank you all so much for your support of local businesses like us over this last week. Not everybody is aware that CHOMP is a locally-owned (20 Iowa City Restaurant Owners) and managed delivery service that supports only local independent restaurants. All of the money spent on deliveries through CHOMP is guaranteed to stay local and benefit locally-owned restaurants versus other national delivery companies that will send 40% of the order cost to tech companies out of state.

CHOMP is one of the last remaining sources of revenue for over 75 restaurants in our community during this period when the state has required their dining rooms to be closed.

We are all in this together, we are your neighbors, we are here for you. We are committed to the safety and well-being of both the individuals and small businesses of our community and the progression of our City through this trying time. Thank you, again, for your continued support. Our community is united and our family is strong. 💪🏼

We'd like to give a special shoutout to all the restaurants delivering through us at this time as well as some organizations that have been incredibly helpful during this time in both spreading awareness and uniting our community.
