Great little place in ISU Campustown area. Based on a Brazilian core with many other items. The gyro is served open faced and is awesome. Also a wide selection of craft and international beers on tap.

Fantastic Brazilian Bar/Pub in Ames, from all places... I wish they were more focused on the food than on being a bar that caters to students, but will still go there frequently! Probably the best spot in town to watch soccer.

This restaurant was recommended to us. We were looking for more than just college bar food. The specialty cocktails and the food was delicious. It gets really busy so you may need to wait- but it shouldn't be too long to get a seat.

Go there for the Long Islands, leave there with a full stomach. The food is pretty good, but a little greasy. The owner prepares and cooks the food himself and the waitresses are friendly. I would go there again if I ever stop back in...More

I believe they do. I don't worry about gluten free, but this restaurant is in a college town, so they are ready for anything.
