They are the unsung heroes of everyday life. They are the waiters and waitresses at our favorite local diners and restaurants. The best ones move quickly but are never rushed. Sometimes they're sassy, sometimes classy. But they earn our respect and deserve more than just a 20% tip.

We salute them all as they do their best to brighten our days and nights with a smile and fast service. Let us shine the spotlight on your favorite waitress and waiter in our new Photo Contest:

The submission period for this contest has ended. 

Submit a photo and the name of your favorite waiter or waitress before October 24. Then from Oct. 25- Oct 30 we’ll spotlight the Top Ten Servers, posting the best five guys and best five gals in a Championship Round of voting.


On October 31 we’ll crown our Champion Waiter and Waitress, and they’ll each get a Prize Pack including a pair of Alice Cooper concert tickets to the March 13 show at the TaxSlayer Center in Moline.

Tell us who most deserves the title of Iowa's Super Server!
