I know there have been threads on here before about great Iowa eats - but here's my question for you guys. I'm looking for some great places to eat in north central IA. I'm from DSM but my girlfriend is from up there, and I don't know the area that well.
On another note, if you have any other "must go to" places anywhere in Iowa, please throw them out there! I'm on the road a lot around the state and am always looking for that new great place to stop. I found an awesome little diner on the square in Mt. Ayr a couple of years ago and had maybe the best grinder ever there - can't remember the name, though!
My first ISU basketball game - Fred Hoiberg was on the court.
My first ISU football game - Paul Rhoads was on the sidelines.
But they hadn't yet reached their full potential.
SO PROUD that things have come full circle. #cyclONEnation
Sure. I used to live in Mason City and in-laws are in Clear Lake, so we're up there a lot.
Best place to eat in Mason City (best steak...ANYWHERE IMO) is Northwestern Steakhouse. I don't even open the menu when I go. Filet, side greek spagetti, and greek salad. A member of the same family owns Cafe Nortwest in Ames, but the Steakhouse is the original and better IMO.
