There's a great Burmese-Moroccan fusion bistro on the corner of 12th and Maple. Try the oysters!

Hickory Park is one of the more well-known restaurants. Great BBQ, but it can get busy depending on when you go.

I'd also recommend Great Plains Pizza.

Nice! Glad you enjoyed it.

Every time we travel past Ames to visit the wife's fam in Des Moines I want to stop at Hickory Park. We're never passing at a good meal time though.

And oh man, do I miss Great Plains...most filling pizza I've ever had.
