    Brick City Grill is decent but I am really surprised that they won this award. I prefer Wallaby's just in Ames alone, not to mention other places across Iowa that are better.

    I think they have a Farmer burger that has an egg and hash browns on it.

    Egg ham and hashbrowns.

    Brick City Double is the best option though

    Their new joint (Big Grove Brewery in Solon) is pretty good too.

    That's the place I was trying to remember that I saw on Iowa Public Television:

    My main stop in Dexter is at the Rusty Duck to sample the winner of the Iowa's Best Burger Award. Over 200 restaurants vied for the honor but Brad Waldron's Rusty Duck established in 2004 took the prize for one impressive looking burger.


    Waldron: The particular burger that won it this year was the bacon cheeseburger. We grind our own meat. We use top sirloin ribeye trimmings for my steaks and we grind it ourselves, patty it. There is really nothing that we do any different. It is just that you know it is the same burger I have been serving for years. After we make the cheeseburger we put about 10/12 pieces of bacon on it and it is stacked pretty good. You know it is definitely a dinner. If you can't eat it you can definitely take it home and eat it the next day.


    Kaercher: 10 to 12 pieces of bacon? I mean wouldn't two be enough?


    Waldron: No, two wouldn't be enough.

    Kaercher: And I think it is pretty safe to say that no one walks out the door hungry.

    Waldron: We have pretty good sized portions on everything. Like our hamburgers are 14 ounce, pork tenderloin is 10/12 ounces. We go through quite a few to-go boxes.

    Maybe it was an off day but I went to Oddfellows on a Sunday afternoon and I will never go back. They try to copy Zombie Burger but if you want to do you first need to know how to grill a burger. Again, maybe it was an off day but I won't be going back to find out.

    The last few times I have been to Wallaby's it was extremely slow and it wasn't even busy. They might have the best burger in Ames but not when it is cold.

    That is what I was thinking. Sounds like a very reasonable wait to me considering the time of visit. I love when people go to a place on a random Tuesday night and on a Sunday during the Super Bowl or something and expect the service to be the same.

    To be fair he did say service was good considering and never said it ruined it for him.
