    My wife and I had a fantastic OC experience. After meeting the owner of the restaurant on this forum, we decided to go out for dinner Friday night. The place was packed with customers and after a taste of the great food and atmosphere it was no surprise. We kept pretty much to the Greek part of the menu and next time plan on visiting the Italian side. If there are any Lamb connoisseur's out there, this is your place! Meeting the owner was just another highlight. He struck me as an intelligent gentleman whose traditional values seem to coincide with my own. Dino's Greek and Italian Cuisine in Des Moines will be seeing a lot more of us. As an added bonus, 15% was deducted from our bill just for OC'ing. Thanks Dev!

    I think agroup get together is in order.....

    We felt the pricing was very reasonable. Especially considering the quality of the food. Subtract from that the 15% and you're talking a real deal.

    Dont you think Kildars, vandals that everyone of us should be doing little this or little that to promote what we think and know is our right? So I am trying to do little part of mine to make it more popular for other citzens arround us, more they know about our OC right less problems we will run into due to so called "Panicked customer 911 calls...". Just a car I am all fine with that, as long as we are within ethics of this forum.

    Right on Manu can't wait to come down there....and lamb damn I love lamb...so does my mother in law she is coming over to visit from Hawaii soon. That would blow her mind to go eat some lamb and see open carrying it will giveus a lot to talk about while she is here. Island folk aren't used to seeing guns.

    I put that address in my GPS and will be visiting soon.

    This is one restaurant that will NEVER get robbed.

    I love lamb more than any meat, and I love Greek food. Might have to make this place the new stop for family holidays.

    Thanks for your support Manu, be seeing you soon!

    Ok my wike and I had dinner at Dino's last night. Actually my wike couldn't make it so it was my brother and me. Good place to eat and the discount was awesome. As soon as our weapons were spotted out came D with a hearty welcome. It is a very nice place for casual dining. The food is good and all of the personnel were very friendly.

    This is awesome! I live right down the street. We'll be up there soon!

    Cool one more place in the area, that is OC friendly. Local QFC doesn't seem to mind either, but don't quote me on that.

    Although I know alot of the local NPPD officers I have not had the pleasure of meeting any of them while open carrying. Don't know what the responce will be. Positive I hope when it happens.

    Don't know if it's a policy or if they just have a "we don't have a policy, so we don't care" policy... but every QFC I've been in has been totally cool with it. I've even given out two pamphlets at a local one here in Edmonds to employees that were curious.

    Here at Normandy Park QFC I have talked to few employees as per them its normal for them to see people walking with guns because of police academy close by, many trainee come to this QFC so employees of QFC here never raise an eyebrow they just assume the person carrying is from Academy or other LEO. They really do not know whats the policy of QFC regarding guns.
