Voted best BBQ in Des Moines by USA Today!
THE GURU Journey
Guru BBQ was born out of an eclectic mix of Cajun, French, Korean, Mexican, Spanish, and Thai cuisine styles. Starting in 2009, three Des Moines-natives began honing their vision for Guru BBQ in the cut-throat world of competition BBQ. Within a few short years, they were gaining popularity on the BBQ circuit and taking in catering requests.
Today, Guru BBQ continues to expand the culinary palate for other-worldly BBQ out of its brick and mortar restaurant in downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Everyday Guru BBQ continues the journey to create mind-bending BBQ with soul-nurturing flavors, using international ingredients and various in-house grilling techniques.
