    Put one back in Ames please! So many chicken sandwiches would be consumed by all.

    Chick-fil-a sucks. A piece of chicken on bread with nothing else? What's the point?

    Bite your tongue. The whole menu is fantastic, and the breakast is immaculate.

    Just an aside on Chick-fil-A...

    The Chick-fil-A a mile from my house is one of the most profitable Chick-fil-A's in the country (according to a Chick-fil-A manager I know). A couple of months ago, they shut down, tore down the building, tore out the building slab, tore out the parking lots, and are in the process of putting up a new building. The building was 15-20 years old at most. It's almost finished now and doesn't appear to be much bigger than the old one (as they were confined by their lot size). Can't say I've seen a remodel of a fast food place on that scale.

    Spend money to make money I guess...

    Happening to the McDonalds in west Ames. They completely tore it down and are rebuilding a new one there.

    Beat me to it. The west Ames McDonald's was a dump. I know several people who avoided that McDonald's because it was so sketch.

    I always like Mcdonalds west. They always played such strange music.

    Don't forget about the pickles.

    I would like to see Chick-fil-a in the Lorry's Coffee location right on Lincoln Way in Ames. We have enough coffee shops in town, I want some chicken.

    I can understand that. The Chick-fil-A I mentioned seemed to be in pretty good shape as far as fast food places go, so it was surprising to see it demolished.
