This place has a better location than Pancheros does or Qdoba did. Much easier access with multiple entries to the parking lot and a stoplight adjacent. That will help a lot.
The chicken, beef and pork taste great there, but rip my stomach up. Now that I'm vegetarian I can get every salsa, every veggie, every pepper...feel totally fine. Even the chicken that you'd think would be fine tears me up.
Qdoba was a big loss for ames.
Chipotle is good stuff, Fighting Burrito when it was Flying Burrito could go toe-to-toe with any of the big chains on the power if Spicy Corn Salsa alone. It has, however; been reduced to a shell of it's former 'tortilla splitting' glory. Not enough mass/meat. period.
Qdoba is a slight step up from taco bell, my ex-gf loved that place and there's a reason she is my ex-gf.
That honestly shocks me that some prefer Pancheros over Chipotle. Most everyone I know would say the opposite.
The good thing is that now everyone in Ames can find out for themselves. And from what I've heard from the Ames city planner, Olive Garden is getting closer to a done deal and should be built across the street next to Texas Roadhouse. Hope that works out!
Growth like this is good for Ames!
Moes is great but I like Qdoba the best honestly, love me some BBQ burritos.
Since taco bell was mentioned time to get out of bed, and cure my mug night hangover.
Everytime I ask someone, what's so great about Chipotle I just get "It's Chipolte man! It's awesome. We had them all over in [insert home state]." I think the hype for it in Ames is all of the out-of-stater students that just miss it from home, not because it truly is that awesome.
Chipotle>Pancheros (i prefer things not mixed though, i like the distinct tastes and textures), but unless flying b has gone farther downhill than i thought it had, it should be better than both.
