    Es Tas

    Some were talking about it in the other thread and I thought I'd mention that the location on Welch is closed. They do have another location on Stanton.

    Re: Es Tas

    I knew they were opening another location on Stanton (which I thought was strange) but I didn't know they were closing the one on Welch? Please tell me the location on Stanton is every bit as good, I LOVE ME SOME ES TAS!

    I wonder if they'd consider opening a location in DSM???

    Re: Es Tas

    I just found out about it today. I don't think it was in their original plans to close the one on Welch. The one on Stanton is/was only open on weekends as it was more bar than restaurant although I don't know for sure what they'll be doing now. I would think they would move the restaurant part there and be open all the time but who knows. Will probably know shortly.

    Re: Es Tas

    what?!?! why would they move to another location? i could see them wanting a bigger location, but with all of the best bars in ames right there, why would they want to move?

    I haven't been in the one on Welch, but I was in the one on Stanton in early December, and I thought it was pretty nice.

    Re: Es Tas

    I think there are some safety issues with a lot of the bars/buildings in the campustown area.

    Re: Es Tas

    Hey, on the topic of Ames finest eating establishments, I have heard from a few people that Battle's isn't as good since George died. Anyone have an opinion on this? I've been meaning to get there myself ever since I moved back to Iowa, but just haven't made it yet.

    I've only had Battle's once in my life, and I think it was in the fall. I thought it was very good. I liked the barbecue better than Hickory Park.

    It's much better in Nevada!

    Campustown needs a major facelift. I went to Manhattan last weekend and it pails in comparison to Aggieville...

    Re: Battles

    Battles is still amazing. I haven't noticed much of a change.

    I think the Mexican Restaurant market is pretty saturated in Des Moines.

    True. Tasty Tacos is just fine by me, just wish I could get a beer there too!
