The Best Chinese Restaurant in the State of Iowa [PHOTOS]
When it comes to Chinese food, everybody has a favorite place!
The Daily Meal has put together a list of the best Chinese restaurants in all 50 states using "local publications, social media, and crowdsourced reviews from Yelp and similar sites." Unfortunately, the top pick for Iowa isn't in the Cedar Rapids area, so if you want to try it, you'll need to take a road trip over to Des Moines.
Le’s Chinese Bar-B-Que, located at 1600 2nd Ave in Des Moines, has been named the best Chinese restaurant in the state. The article reads:
"With duck, pork, and chicken hanging in the window, it’s hard to resist sampling the roasted meat at Le’s Chinese Bar-B-Que. Get it by the pound to-go at this Des Moines, Iowa, spot or order it as part of noodle soup, fried rice or lo mein."
Le’s Chinese Bar-B-Que has a 4.5 star rating on Yelp, and almost all of the reviews mention how good the pork and duck are! The next time you're out that way, you might want to stop by and give it a try.
