    Where is your go-to place for food in Ames?

    Fellow fanatics, I need some advice here. I almost always eat at my apartment to save money but I am looking to splurge and go get some food somewhere this afternoon or evening. Where is your go to venue in Ames for some delicious food? Eat-in, takeout or delivery are all fine, I am just looking for a good, big meal this afternoon. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Go downtown to the Great Plains Sauce and Dough Company and order a large pizza with a pitcher of Amber Bock.

    Taco John's, *******! Six Pack and a Pound is where it's at. Lincoln Way, a bit east of campus.

    Edit: bah, I could swear I saw "fast food" in the title. Oh well. TJ's is great but obviously not a "go-to" place for food in general.

    Depends what you're looking for.

    Cheap (healthy) and filling: Pita Pit, JJ's, Subway


    BWW is great for sharing or their Jerk Chicken sandwich is awesome!

    I'm hoping to eat at Red Lobster this weekend, the four course feast is tempting me (and I am craving fish)

    Many other good places too. These are just off the top of my head.

    Quick and cheap, el Azteca or Wendys.

    Eat til I explode, Mongolian Buffet or Valentinos.

    Good food but a little spendy, Oddfellows.

    Good food and tons of it, Texas Roadhouse when it opens.

    Chinese/Asian, House of Chen.

    One more month! I saw that they had the lights on inside yesterday. I hope they have some nice deals or promotions to open up with.

    After a football game, I'd always head to BWW and have myself some boneless honey bbq wings with a bbq burger and fries. Always filled me up after a long game.
