    Top Five Ames Restaurants (with a poll)

    The last thread was actually my first post on CF and took off like crazy and I made reference to it today and decided making a poll was worth it. I made a list of all the suggestions and there were over 50. The web site only allows 25 poll choices so almost certainly some people's favorites will be off the list. Tried to stick with the most suggested and ones that I knew were still open but I will assure you I could (and probably did) mess it up.

    wallaby's. easy choice for the simple reason that everything there is good. some places have better wings or something but wallaby's has the best fries, chicken tenders, and cheese curds IMO

    Little Taipei #4? Blaspheme. Regardless of what you think about the food, anyplace that sets their price at $2.99 for about 17 years and features an angry sounding man shouting numbers ("33!!!, 33!!!") demanding that you pick up your food should be an undisputed #1.

    BTW, what does Little Taipei charge these days?

    Chinese Home Cooking- If you go once somehow they always remember you. Graduated and came back 2 years later. It was like I never left. Many have told me that same type of story. Best chinese I have ever had. Of course we called it "CHC"
