Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives

Postby Tyler » Tue Dec 09, 2014 1:00 pm

This Friday is a Des Moines episode

Fish, Fries and Feet
This trip, Guy's tackling everything from land to sea. In Des Moines, the funky fusion joint serving up unique burritos alongside off-the-chain bulgogi masa fries. Across town in the Beaverdale area of Des Moines, the Southern spot cooking up all the classics, from ribs and red beans and rice to catfish cakes and collards. And in Atlantic City, the husband-wife duo dishing out soul food standouts like turkey chops and pig feet.

We think they are Tacopocalypse and Flying Mango for the Des Moines ones, not sure about Atlantic City.

Flying Mango. After watching the episode we decided against Tacopocalypse since it looked like more of a lunch place.

I'm not a huge fan of "lunch places," I want the full experience of a sit down. From the title, I guess that's not the target of the show though

We ate at Jethro's, where Man vs Food was at. Kyle said he could have easily ate the challenge but he didnt feel like it.
