    Long John's Ames - Closed

    So, horrible start to my day today. Driving by Long John's in Ames and it says it's closed for good on the sign. Now where am I going to go to get my week's worth of calories in one meal??

    I do have to say that the service, at least at the one in Ames, was pretty bad. Average wait time of 15 minutes even if you were the only one there.

    Re: Long John's Ames - Closed

    the only time we go to LJS in marshalltown is during Lent because we can't eat meat on fridays and it always takes 15-20 minutes for our food. I'm not surprised the Ames one would be closed.

    Exactly. It's kind of odd that they label themselves a seafood place but I pretty much only ever get their chicken. Although I had their fish a couple times and it pretty much all tastes the same.....deliciously greasy!!

    Not a healthfood snob, but I always thought LJS was horrible. Unless you were plugged up, then it would take care of that issue faster than any medications.

    Drove by the one in Ankeny the other day, and I was surprised it was still open. Of course it was at dinner time and there were no cars there.

    I love their chicken strips.....laying on a bed of crumbles. The one thing about LJS, like any good "bad" thing.....I always feel like a bad person when I am done eating there.....but before and during it is pure bliss!

    Long John Scurvy's is good maybe once a year. Twice is pushing it.

    Yep, while eating it's awesome. Then about an hour later when you have grease coming out of your sweat glands and still smell like the store it's a little awkward.

    You and hos can get out of here and go start your own Panera thread.
