    Taco Bell in Ames... CLOSED???

    The Taco Bell on Lincoln Way near campus is currently closed. The signs on the building have been taken down and there is paper covering the windows.

    Does anyone know if it is closed for renovations or if it has closed permanently??

    I don't know, but it sure looked closed driving by.

    Not good. This is going to hurt the pep band even more than bringing in the new director and his newfangled play calling scheme. Now that their training table is closed, how are they going to lure in those high ranked prospects.

    Taco Johns > Taco Bell

    The Taco Bell in Cedar Falls was closed and torn down to build a completely new one. The main reason they were doing this to the Taco Bell in Cedar Falls was because the original building did not have a drive thru and they wanted to add one.

    But this location had a drive-thru.

    I was actually thinking about it for lunch before the basketball game, but that didn't work out.

    Ah, the memories of waking up on a Saturday morning to 48 taco wrappers strewn about the living room and a floor full of lettuce and cheese.

    It probably wasn't the lack of business. It seemed like that place was a health violation waiting to happen.

    That place was disgusting and awful. Good riddance.

    Indeed. Hopefully something else can make better use of the prime space.
