Iowa's most iconic diner is none other than the Bluebird Diner in Iowa City. It has a bunch of good reviews on TripAdvisor and Reader's Digest had this to say about the eatery:

Meet the spot making what they call “Midwest soul food” a very real—and delicious—thing. Made with locally sourced ingredients, what’s on the menu at this Iowa City joint is classic country cooking with an unexpected twist. Favorites include the Krakatoa omelet stuffed with bacon, jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, and cilantro-lime cream cheese.

According to Des Moines Register, Bluebird Diner was opened in 2008 by Jon Wilson and Thomas Connolly and the restaurant just recently did renovations. They have breakfast all day and if you want to eat breakfast on the weekends, you'd better get there early since there's often a line out the door.

Bluebird Diner also has lunch and dinner offerings too, like sandwiches and tacos. You can keep up with Bluebird Diner on their Facebook page.
