    Best Burger in Ames

    Where is this to be found?

    I am convinced that the Cowboy Burger at Whiskey River is the best. However I have been told the best is to be found in Gilbert. The Open Flame apparently grinds their own steak trimmings from steaks occasionally for "burger night."

    Re: Best Burger in Ames

    If you hear the best is found in Gilbert, they would not fit you criteria for best Burger in Ames, right?

    Re: Best Burger in Ames

    No longer available but $1 burgers at the old Cy's Roost on Weds (before they got closed down and turned into a preppy bar in early 2000's, were pretty damn good burgers. Beer and burgers before Weds night class was my favorite.

    Really sad what happened to that place. I remember the first time I walked in there after it was reopened, I almost wanted to cry. And yes, they used to have some very good food there.

    I felt the same way, they got rid of the kitchen and turned it into more of a "meat market" type of bar. Welch Ave. Station is still my favorite by the "classic" version of Cy's Roost was a close 2nd. You'd line up before 4pm on Weds for Buck Burger night and stuff yourself for very little $
