    Wallaby's make list of top 101 best sports bars

    I question this list overall, but cool to see an Ames bar included.

    I see Joe Sensers in Bloomington, MN made it. I went there to watch the Toledo debacle in 2007, little did i know that was a Hawkeye alumni watch party bar. Horrible night, although the Hawks lost to Wisky that night so at least it wasnt a total loss. I liked the bar, hated the atmosphere for obvious reasons

    Nice work out of Wallaby's! Always a great place to get some food and watch some sports on gameday.

    Yeah, I went there to watch a Cyclone loss one time. The entire second half was ruined (beyond the terrible game) by the kNU fans showing up for their game and being a bunch of jackwagons.

    My only complaint with Wallaby's is that the televisions at your table usually have poor reception.

    Best burgers in Ames imo, and I agree with Angie buffalo wrap and fries are good too. My wife always gets the sweet potato fries.

    This is just my opinion...
    Its too small and usually a dreadful wait if anything is going on in town, no place to wait either.
    It's over priced
    The tv set up is horrendous, at least it was last time I was there.
    The service isnt the best, a girl was once fired while still waiting on my wife and her table. She came back to the table crying to pick up the check.
    There are a few decent items on the menu, but overall there are many places in ames id go to before wallabys.
