My boyfriend had heard great things about this place and I was intrigued because I was a huge fan of chinese food and pizza. The crab rangoon, mongolian beef, and veggie pizza are amazing! You have to go here and try it for yourself. We have made the two hour drive from our home to Fongs several times now. Staff... More

This is one of those "bucket list" places- you have to visit at least once or twice. When we have friends or family in from out of town, this is a great place to take them- especially helpful when trying to show that Des Moines can be a pretty cool place. If you are going in the evening or on... More

I had seen Fong's on Travel Channel's "Food Paradise" covering the nations best pizza joints. I was shocked to find out there was an Iowa pizzeria, and of course knowing this I had to try it! I went with one my friends who'd been dying to go as well, and we'd both heard rave reviews on the legendary crab Rangoon... More

The pizzas are extravagant flavors and the drinks are well done. My issue: Reservations PLEASE!!! I waited at this place for an HOUR and a HALF waiting with my relatively small birthday party. Plainly unacceptable. If the head of the party wasn't set on this place I would've left after 15 minutes. Wise up and take reservations! OpenTable is NOT... More

I've visited some good happy hour specials, but Fong's is great. They give you a free slice of pizza with your happy hour adult beverage, and you even have choices. The choice always includes a vegetarian option, and it is always delicious. So if you want a sample before making a commitment...happy hour is the way to go. But you... More

Love their Honey Garlic, Loaded Baked Potato, and Crab Rangoon pizzas. I have tried others but I forget which ones as I am usually a few sheets to the wind when eating at Fong's. ;) Most of the times I've been there have been after bars close and we wander in, since they are open until 3am which is awesome....

If you come on a weekend make sure you got time cause it's packed! We went on a Friday night with family - a total of eight of us. It took about 30-40 minutes to get seated but we went up stairs and had a drink while waiting for the buzzer so it wasn't bad at all. Service was good.... More

Small, quaint and awesome. Had three different pizzas, all were very tasty. Can't wait to go back. Great atmosphere. I could see taking a date, family or business meeting here. Service was outstanding

Stopped by here after working late at night.. and surprisingly was able to get a table for 4. This is a great place at night to grab some slices of pizza and some drinks. Though I wish they offered a few more choices of single slices as they offered cheese, pepperoni and a breakfast styled one. Hightly recommend this place... More
