    New Pizza place in Ames

    Opening March 3rd in Sommerset (I think).

    Home Page

    Take a look at the pictures link on the left. Wow. I can't say that Great Plains should be worried, but Jeff's and Geangelo's better look out.

    Re: New Pizza place in Ames

    Considering Jeff's location right by campus, I don't think they have too much to worry about...it's the most convenient, and they milk the late-night crowds for all their worth.

    But that stuffed pizza sure does look amazing!

    Yeah, Jeff's does have the location thing going for it. I hope that they keep it up. I'm not really a fan of their pizza, but the smotherella sticks and their sandwiches are awesome.

    The Black Market Pizza will be in a nice location too, though. North Ames is growing pretty fast. And there's not much for restaurants on that side of town. Pretty much just The Cafe unless you want to drive to Grand. Sounds like it is going where the old wine store was.

    You're right about the pizza...that makes me hungry even at 9am.

    There was a news story on this place awhile back (I think). The owner was laid off and decided to open is own place rather than try to find a job in this horrible economy. So needless this guys got a lot riding on this place.

    Wow, those pies look really good.

    Re: New Pizza place in Ames

    i wonder it will be a dine in restaurant, or delivery only. I didn't see anything on the website, but I could have just missed it.

    you dont like their pizza? boy you must be nuttier'n a squirrel turd. i had the gyro pizza the other day, and if anything it is at least different than any other pizza youll find around here. the specialty pizzas are great (loaded baked potato, gyro, hot wing pizza, etc.) and the rest of the food is even better. the other day my buddy had some sort of lamb sandwhich was amazazing, and the wings are surprisingly good for a pizza joint (i believe the meat is injected, which is why).

    that being said, you cant have enough quality pizza joints. and this will be nice being in somerset, because it is a short hop from the UV ghetto.

    When did Jeff's open? I don't remember it. Gyro pizza and baked potato sound good.

    I know this is slightly off topic, but are there any Home Team Pizza's around anymore?

    Yeah I was not hungry at all and when I saw their pizza that instantly changed. North Ames is growing so fast now.

    I know they did in Ames, but did all of them close? I loved the $5 one topping and the crust was decent for the price.

    I've had Jeff's a couple times, and it is very good. Big fan of their "clones."
