    I see Joe Sensers in Bloomington, MN made it. I went there to watch the Toledo debacle in 2007, little did i know that was a Hawkeye alumni watch party bar. Horrible night, although the Hawks lost to Wisky that night so at least it wasnt a total loss. I liked the bar, hated the atmosphere for obvious reasons

    Nice work out of Wallaby's! Always a great place to get some food and watch some sports on gameday.

    Yeah, I went there to watch a Cyclone loss one time. The entire second half was ruined (beyond the terrible game) by the kNU fans showing up for their game and being a bunch of jackwagons.

    My only complaint with Wallaby's is that the televisions at your table usually have poor reception.

    Best burgers in Ames imo, and I agree with Angie buffalo wrap and fries are good too. My wife always gets the sweet potato fries.

    This is just my opinion...
    Its too small and usually a dreadful wait if anything is going on in town, no place to wait either.
    It's over priced
    The tv set up is horrendous, at least it was last time I was there.
    The service isnt the best, a girl was once fired while still waiting on my wife and her table. She came back to the table crying to pick up the check.
    There are a few decent items on the menu, but overall there are many places in ames id go to before wallabys.

    A long wait is usually a good thing; meaning the food is good so people want to be there.

    Alaska? Come on. Mississippi? What the. Smoking retreads.

    Getting Wallaby's in there was one of the few highlights. My only regret of hanging in Wallaby's is I think lost my hearing there.

    I can't really agree with any of this. It's a sports bar, it's busy because it's good and a popular destination. It's no smaller than most restaurants in Ames, which have very similar waits. I get the feeling you don't go out in Ames on Friday night a lot.
