Food Trucks

In May 2019 food service at The Hall took an evolutionary step. What started out as a unique marriage between food trucks and technology transformed into amazing food vendors of all types who now call The Kitchen DSM their home. These members of The Kitchen include caterers, aspiring restaurant owners, guest chefs and food truck operators.

As Iowa's only food and beverage hall, we will continue to bring you new and exciting menu offerings provided by the Members of The Kitchen. The new state-of-the-art kitchen allows all of its members to explore new levels of culinary creativity.

Eclectic, delicious and fresh, the food at The Hall will satisfy your taste buds and spark conversations. Perhaps you’ll bond over Belgian waffles? Or better yet, fall in love over pizza pies.

+ The menus are a little dynamic around here. Check the calendar to see who is on +

The World is Our Oyster

The launching of The Kitchen DSM has opened the doors for unparalleled culinary offerings. We have a few more vendors to announce this summer as well as plans for guest chef nights and foodie fundraisers for The Justice League of Food.

The Kids in The Hall

The Kids in The Hall is the first new brand born in The Kitchen DSM created by the first students of the Justice League of Food.

The inaugural menu includes the best of the wursts, chicken schnitzel, big pretzels, spätzle, sauerkraut, blaukraut, potato salad and creamed spinach. Stay tuned as The Kids in The Hall explore European cuisine and develop exciting new menu items as part of their training.



Get a taste of what foodies call “irrationally delicious pizza” from 515 Pi. Using hand pressed dough and the freshest ingredients, each inspired pizza is fired fast to order and served bubbling hot. Pizza Meister Brad Bormann was the first in the nation to put an 850 degree Woodstone oven in a truck. Why you ask - cuz they said it couldn't be done.

Charlotte’s Belgian Waffle Cookies


Charlotte’s Belgian Waffle Cookies is named after our Grandma Charlotte Noble who taught us how to bake, to live life to the fullest, and most importantly to extend love to each person we meet. The recipe is authentically Belgian, and in every waffle we extend a little bit of Grandma Charlotte’s love to you. Each favorite on our menu is dedicated to a Noble--Grandma Charlotte, Grandpa Jim and all of their kids --- so pick your favorite and taste the love!
