    Re: Anyone wanna open a restaurant

    Surprised it took so long.

    I think the right owners could make that location awesome. Legend's just kinda sucks though. A jack of all trades is a master of none.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    And you better have one HELL of a business plan to make a million bucks for the space worth it when your closest potential customers are cheap college kids.

    There is probably a teacher somewhere wanting to purchase this and provide good customer service.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Anyone wanna open a restaurant

    So is Legend's not renewing their lease or is the owner just looking to cash out? I like going there for the views of campus and it's a cool enough set up. The food is serviceable, but I wish it was a little better.

    Re: Anyone wanna open a restaurant

    I want to open a restaurant but not one where Legend's is.

    Ames does not have a place to get a good steak and we are in the middle of the midwest. I have never understood how this has happened without anybody at least trying to open a steakhouse. Think of all the business that place could bring in during graduations, before and after games, and when kids go for orientation or move in. I honestly think most people avoid going to Hickory Park because they know it is going to be packed during those times and I think a place to get a good steak is what Ames needs

    Re: Anyone wanna open a restaurant

    That location has the potential to be a premier restaurant for ames. Legends wasn't it.

    It doesn't do itself any favors by being located in BFE next to a trailer park, that's for sure.
