    Make sure you eat at Hickory Park. Best BBQ in the state, can’t beat the amount of food you get for the price.

    Sad day. Loved Old Main's root beer and always had good food. Haven't been back to that side of town in a while. When did they shut down?

    Go to Welch Ave Station in campus town for a beer, pizza, and wings. If you want to tailgate you can get into the grass lots south of the stadium for $20/car. Give yourself a couple hours if you're going to do that. Walk around and enjoy!

    Don't do tax evasion folks! Really a shame. DG's and the Corner Pocket were great places on Main Street.

    I hate to start the HP debate, but please don't tell a person from the South that HP is the best BBQ in the state.

    Go to Hickory Park, but don't go with any expectations. People expect different things when they hear BBQ, but I think everyone can enjoy HP if they come with no pre-concieved notions.

    It's more like a Midwest Cafe.

    yeah HP is good but no where near great BBQ, its more of a cool atmosphere though. If you want good BBQ you go to Smoky D's on 2nd ave or Kue'd bbq out in Waukee.

    Go to hickory park but realize that only people who grew up in towns of 600 or less think that it's barbecue or great.

    Do at least one day in Ames. Saturday night for sure.

    Just walk around the grass lots with a 12 pack. You will get fed so much food and booze for rocking your road gear.

    Hit Alluvial and Torrent Breweries, and make sure to soak in the vibe at Tip Top lounge about 6 hours before kick off.

    I’d put best in quotations. There are much better spots for bbq in the state.
