    You mean the one with the pink tacos?

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

    Re: Mexican restaurant in Ames?

    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.

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