    I'm not sure, I remember them being one of the pictures on Cyclone Fanatic. Kind of making myself hungry thinking about it.

    I have no idea which used to be a sponsor here, but you can't go wrong with either El Azteca or La Fuente.

    El Azteca is good in Ankeny, they have a location in Ames also out on highway 30.

    Go to Carlos OKelly's. The only good authentic Mexican restaurant I've had is El Rodeo in Urbandale

    Dos Rios on Court Ave. in downtown Des Moines is pretty good Authentic mexican as well.

    I'd suggest you try this place as well. The make the guacamole right at your table exactly how you like it (spicy, not spicy, with lots or little vegetables, ect)
