This is my favorite restaurant in the Des Moines area. I regularly recommend Flying Mango to friends. They have, by far, the best beef brisket I've had in Iowa. There is limited seating, but it makes for a nice intimate setting. They take a limited amount of reservations in order to be able accommodate walk in traffic. The portions are generous and every bite is flavorful. I always receive excellent service. Parking was sparse in the past, but they've expanded parking across the side street.
