I had a much needed cup of tea (they let me use my own) and a delicious beet salad with a lovely crisp dressing. Love the menu... and will come back to try other items. Read more

My first trip to Stella was a very successful one. I had one of their burger and fries combo. It was a healthy serving size and... delicious! They played great music and it was busy like a Friday night, however, we were there for lunch. They have an extensivemenu and any omnivore should find something great to eat whenever you visit Stella. I'll be going back and suggest you makeplans to visit Stella if you haven't. Read more

We were in town for several nights. We dined here 3 of 3 nights. Night 1 roped us in for 2 and 2 for 3! Great food options,... excellent servers and overall service. We were able to dine on patio each night - totally enjoyed every meal! Burgers, salads,Cajun, and pizzas all great choices. Read more

Needed somewhere to stop for a quick bite before my appointment. Very cute spot with outdoor seating. Amber was my server and... she was great. I'm not a fan of "in your face" staff and she was perfect. I had a "shades of orange" drink that was just what Ineeded and it was made perfect. Also I couldn't believe the food you get for the price and it will easily be 2 meals for me.Also it was probably the best Cuban sandwich I've ever had. Recommend Stella 10/10! Read more

We dined for lunch today at the suggestion of a few Doctors and a Nurse from University of Iowa's Medical Team. Upon review, we... noted Stella's had a 4-star rating so our hopes were high. When we arrived it was nice to see the iron gate entrance with adouble patio and easy access to menu posted outside the door. We entered and were promptly greeted by Darren. SUPER Energy. Hesat us and took our drink order. The environment was very laid back. Fans were running as there was no AC that we could tell. Wewere quite comfortable with the fans; however, we do think they need a good cleaning. Despite that, Darren took our order. Ican't figure out how he can have that much energy in the heat, yet he keeps pouring it out. While we waited, we came to theconclusion that Stella is a hidden gem and a dive. A place that Guy needs to know about. I digress. We order the Cheese Frieswith Bacon. The fries are cut in-house. When they arrived, they were packed with cheese and covered in bacon. It was like a bacon explosion happened on the plate. The fries were good. We believe if they twice fried them, it might make them a littlemore crispy. Our party devoured them. We ordered three different burgers - a Tingley which has green chili, pepper jack cheese, and guacamole - a Beaconsfield which has bacon, cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce which we believe to be house made - and a Colowhich was American and Swiss Cheese on rye bread with grilled onions. We elected to have raw onions for a crisper bite. Allthree burgers hit the table at the same time - hot. All of them came with seasoned hand-cut fries. The Tingley was served openfaced so I could see the guacamole and the green chili. Upon putting it together and tasting the first bite in the "hontch"maneuver. The flavors were a good mix of cool and spice. The green chili mixed with the guacamole and pepper jack to create justthe right blend of savory heat elements to the texture of the beef. The Beaconsfield was served open Read more
