Went here for a family members birthday and wasn't very impressed. Everyone I know had raved about it but my family and I didn't think it was that wonderful. Very pricey and the food was average. Haven't been back since.

Ate at Latin King with business colleagues on my first trip to Des Moines. Our meal was delicious although I am sure I put on several pounds that night! Atmosphere was a little noisy but clearly a popular restaurant with a long history in the community.

Went there tonight for my first time after living in the Des Moines area for 5 years and it was just great. The server was very very nice but clearly the first night working. We all have had a first day at work so whatever but glasses were always full and very warm welcome from the time we checked in.... More

My husband and I visited Des Moines to attend the white coat ceremony of his son, and we wanted to take him out somewhere special for dinner, and we decided on Tursi's after reading about it on trip advisor. First of all, the service was absolutely incredible! We were seated almost immediately (we preferred to sit outside) and our waitress... More

We ate at Latin King many years ago. I remember it being good, and we thought we should try it again. We went on a random Tuesday or Wednesday night. It was fairly busy but we got seated straight away. We were wanting dessert so we did not order apps. They have a nice wine list, and some beers. They... More

I love to eat at Latin King. Chicken Spedini is my fav. Love their salad and bread too. Lunch and Dinner are both excellent. The service is great too. Well worth the wait if there is a line. The only thing that I would say as a negative is that sometimes it is hard to hear each other, at your... More

I don't remember what I had but it was the house famous chicken meal. It was presented in a roll. Tastey was not the word to use, it was excellent and it was mouth watering. There service from the minute I walked in the door, to being seated, to and during the meal was great. No matter how busy they... More

Latin King has great food and very nice wait staff. I give it a thumbs up :) Sometimes the wait is a little long but it's worth it....

Really not impressed. This is the second time I've been here. Cameoverall for the fried mozzarella appetizer , which was good. The salad was a joke. They do not take reservations for tables less than 6, so our wait was 1hr 15min. Beer selection is weak. They have craft beer, but they are average at best. the long wait and... More
