Glad it has been reopened. Best pizza pocket in the land! Kids love it. Adults love it. Great place to eat and get a drink for the adults.

While they were open I enjoyed their food and the service was decent. I'll miss their pizza since it was the BEST in the area. I'm giving it one star because they are now closed for business.

I'm not sure I would have visited a restaurant called Wackos especially with the crazy looking sign by the road except that someone recommended it to me. If you don’t mind eating in a rustic, bucolic or no-frills establishment, the food is actually quite good...More

Place a little rough around the edges, but the pizza is to die for. Especially fun in the beer garden during the summer.

Wackos is probably one of the most unassuming looking restaurants both outside and inside with nearly no real ambiance. That said, be prepared for some great food. The menu is standard Iowa stuff with Pork Tenderloins being my personal favorite.

The food is ok, the service ok, the place needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. They are often out of menu items which tells me poor management or planning. They really need to step it up.

Burgers and pizza were great there, but their fried tacos are worth a long drive! Volleyball leagues by a big covered patio. While in town, check out the Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum, and the classic county courthouse on the square.
