A Des Moines Favorite

Simon's, also known as J. Benjamin's is that highly revered, well kept secret of a restaurant you've been looking for. Come visit us today, and find out what people are talking about.

Reservations available for tables of six or more. No call ahead seating.

When you walk through our doors you are entering a building where family, quality and fun are traditions!

From 1952 to 1986, Hank and Dorothy Montiquise ran the Franklin Food Shop out of this location. Later, Terry and Sandy Battani decided the location was suitable for a neighborhood pizza joint. No matter whose name was on the door, the customer here was always treated like family, given top-notch value for their money and left with a smile.

I hope to continue those traditions.

Here we are more than 15 years after the doors to J. Benjamin's opened in 1994, and we're still happy to be serving you.

Although Tim Holmes has moved on, we are proud to continue providing the best service and food for an affordable price in this great neighborhood location. Thank you for your support. We couldn't do it without you.

If there are any problems, please let me know. That's why I'm here. I'll do my best to fix it.

Thanks Again,

Simon Goheen
