    Flying Mango

    I've lived in the DM area for about 15 years and have been to about every good restaurant. For some reason we had never been to the Flying Mango until last weekend.

    DAMN!!!

    They have some great food and a nice selection of beer.

    Thought I would share. Make sure you get reservations.

    It's my favorite restaurant in Des Moines, hands down.

    I got the 3 meat. Ribs, sausage, and Brisket. The brisket just fell apart. The corn bread was the best I've had.

    Dang, I'm gonna have to go try it. I had it via catering at a friend's rehearsal dinner and was unimpressed. I'm sure the stuff at the restaurant is way better.

    Had this as well...very tastey. I would recommend to anyone who hasn't eaten there to give it a try.

    Re: Flying Mango

    The Big Chop is quite excellent as well. More like 3 smoked pork chops all still connected versus one "chop"

    Then there's the corn bread with honey butter. That stuff is like crack. So good.

    Re:Flying Mango

    My favorite restaurant in town! Blackened catfish is the best I've
    ever had! Same goes for the brisket and corn bread. The big chop and coyote chop are also great and my wife loves the Jenny salad. To be honest the ribs have been hit or miss for me. This is where I take my friends when they visit from out of town and all have had a great time. Tough to find tho in the mythical land of Beaverdale.
