    Enterprise, IA

    Whenever I drive by Ankeny on 35, my GPS shows a little town nearby called Enterprise. I had never heard of it before, so I googled it. Does anyone know if this is actually a town? On google maps, it just shows a couple of houses and farm buildings. I know this is random, but for some reason I have a fascination with tiny towns like this.

    Yes, I am bored at the moment


    How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm once they've seen Carl Hungus?

    Yup, used to be a little restaurant there.

    Funny thing is, my dad and I were in a hotel restaurant in Denver about 15 years ago and these 2 guys next to us were talking and he said that restaurant was one of his favorite places to go. He said he was a truck driver and he stopped there one time and went back every time he was in town.

    The town is about 100 yds long. Pretty hilarious.

    Mackey, IA if you like small towns. What's left is a church, cemetery, 1-room schoolhouse, and 100 year old farm. Just 2 miles east of Highway 17, 2 miles west of County Line Road, just north of Boone/Ames.

    If you like small town restaurants you should check out Darrel's Place in Hamlin, IA. They have delicious tenderloins, much like most small towns in Iowa.

    Re: Enterprise, IA

    Or if you like REALLY small towns, no food, check out Georgetown on Highway 34 west of Albia. There is a church, an old fill up station, two houses, and a cemetery.

    Small town cafes have the best food.
