    Great Plains Sauce & Dough

    In Ames tonight for daughter's dance recital dress rehearsal and ate at Great Plains for the first time since we left Ames in 1996.

    Hasn't changed a bit and the pizza is still awesome.

    Now, where to eat on Saturday when we come back up for the actual recital...

    Great Plains still have that thick, wheat crust? Back in my college days I could put away a lot of pizza, but a couple of slices of theirs and I'd be full. Good to know they are still good and around... I miss Rocky Rococo's pizza and DaVinci's subs. Hickory Park is still good, but not the same as back in the 90's.

    Didn't they give you honey to dip your crust into? Never liked the crust, but the rest was great. Still like Hickory Park.

    Something like that. My sister is a huge fan of Great Plains, and we always had to go there whenever she got to pick the place. I like it occasionally, since there's nothing like it that I have found anywhere else.

    I like Walabys for footballl season before/after the games, as you can see all the other games that are on. I agree on Hickory Park. Still good. Otherwise Ames is mostly chain restaurants. Machine Shed in Des Moines is pretty good, if you head that way... I try to find excuses to stop there after a football game on the way back to Omaha.

    We used to go to Wallaby's every Thursday night when MrsWx was going to school. Not far from our apt on Florida and always had fun. Cajun mayo...yum. Maybe we'll head there on Sat.

    I have to disagree that Ames is mostly chains. Wallaby's. Dublin Bay. The Spice. Cafe Shi. House of Chen. Le's. CHC. La Fuente. Aunt Maude's. GeAngelos. The Cafe. Those are just a few awesome locally-owned selections.

    Stop at the Grove Cafe. Grove Cafe

    124 Main Street
    Ames, Iowa 50010

    That place might be better than The Waveland Cafe in Des Moines, its that good.

    Daughter must be in Waukee's Westside dance too ey? Wife and daughter went from Waukee up to Ames three nights this week. Makes for a long week.

    Liked Great Plains, but absolutely loved and miss both DaVinci's Pizza and Rocky Roccoco's(sp). We actually planned a vacation so we would go through Lincoln a couple years ago so I could eat there again. Best pizza I have had.

    I think some people equate all of Ames with South Duff...


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.
