    Where to eat in Ames today?

    Happy Fathers Day everybody. I'm heading to Story City to drop 2 of the kids off at camp. We are going to stop and eat in Ames and normally we do the Great Plains or Hickory Park thing, but was curious if there is any other recommendations.

    Thanks!

    What are you in the mood for? We just had Great Plains on Friday. The people sitting next to us took home 3 pizzas--they lived 3 hrs away and always take some home.

    We like The Cafe, El Azteca, GeAngelos, and Vesuvius. Also tried Oddfellows, it wasn't bad but a bit spendy--unique burgers. Last year we went to Okoboji Grill on Father's Day and it was pretty quiet.

    I could eat anything, but i have seven others with us. I like trying new places or wouldn't mind hitting hu hot on the way up. But got denied on that one. Gotta love the old we don't care it's your day line.:) only to get denied, it's not like i am asking for a quickie. Well it looks like i will be heading back to old reliable great plains. I will have to have a guys night out to hit up some of the other suggestions at a later date. Thanks for the input.

    You could try Mongolian Grill. You can have your HuHot, and the rest is a pretty typical Chinese buffet. Not the world's greatest, but maybe a good compromises.

    We swung by Hickory Park at one and there were still over 50 people standing outside. Ended up at Okiboji....hardly anyone there, but the food tasted good.
