    Re: Restaurants in Story County

    B-Fab BBQ in Huxley is really good.
    Country House on Highway 30 at the RV dealer by Colo is good for a cheap filler.
    If you're up for a drive Flatheads in St Anthony has good specials. (Marshall County)

    I'm still mad the Gilbert corner closed down.

    I am a fan of Starbucks in Nevada. I believe it will open for the season soon (maybe March?).

    There used to be a good one in the actual town of Gilbert. It was about the only thing there. Not sure if it is still open.

    Nilands Cafe at the Reed/Niland Corner (Lincoln Highway and Hwy 65) in Colo is a cool place.

    Re: Restaurants in Story County

    This isn't really Story County, but Pickle's Pub in Kamrar is pretty good. Just a quick drive up I-35. Great pizza and other food. If you want another place to try, but it is a bit farther, 209 Main in Paton is awesome!!!
