Ankeny residents have seen Jethro’s BBQ Lakehouse going up in the city’s Prairie Trail development. They’ve heard the buzz around town.
Now, they can finally have a taste of what everyone’s been talking about.
Jethro’s BBQ LakeHouse, located at 1425 S.W. Vintage Parkway, officially opens at 11 a.m. today. The restaurant, dubbed “Your Ankeny Neighborhood Sports Bar” is the fourth Jethro’s location to open in the Des Moines metro, all owned by Bruce Gerleman, who also owns Splash Seafood Bar and Grill in downtown Des Moines.
But don’t expect your run-of-the-mill bar food when you go into Jethro’s.
