    Three new eateries opening soon

    And no, the "Old Country Buffet" and "Mongolian Grill" are not among them.

    Looks like a second El Azteca location, the rebirth of Little Caesar's, and The Corral (in the old Tradewinds location).

    Re: Three new eateries opening soon

    There IS a Mongolian Grill under construction in the former Lucky's Pizza & Video Rental location on Hayward, which was Battle's BBQ before it moved to Welch. The signs went up over winter break. Looks like construction is moving pretty slowly, but it is moving. Lucky's really left that place in bad shape when they moved out, so there's probably a lot to be done.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Being near campus probably makes that a perfect location for that sort of thing. I have to think it will do really well.

    Little Caesar's will be great after bar food, especially if they do the $5 take out pizza. There is one up the street from me, but it's not open very late

    Little Ceasar's is solid drunk food.

    Haven't had Little Caesar's since in probably 15 years. Pure deliciousness, those square pizzas always hit the spot.

    Any word on where the new El Azteca will be? Probably my favorite quick Mexican place in Ames, but sucks going all the way out there for it.

    I always thought that La Fuente and Cazador were better than El Azteca, but one of my buddies thought Azteca was the pinnacle of cheapish Mexican food. Just seemed pretty average to me. Good, but not great.

    But not if it's on the corner of Lincoln and Grand, in there with Carlos O'Kellys, Long John Silvers, Culvers, Brueggers, etc. The only drunks they'll get there are the ones leaving Olde Main's pint night on Wednesdays.

    We've got West Cyde Wings.

    Although I'm a little upset that they raised their Tuesday night special on wings from $.39 to $.44 each. And the last time I went the wings were half the size of normal. Still tasty though. Hopefully next time they will be normal sized. Still love the place though.

    Sweet, I love El Azteca, best Mexican in Ames by far. Their service is amazing; there is no equal.

    WCW has good regular wings, but their boneless wings are vastly inferior to BWW, imo.

    We like our Little Caesars...on the way home fropm work, cheap and consistent pizza in couple of minutes. This chain has improved from five years ago.
