    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

    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.

    I think I remember the guy saying they only served a few things - like only a steak or something weird. Can't exactly remember.

    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.
