Discover Ames

Ames, located in central Story County, Iowa, is home to many well-known chain restaurants, and there is also at least one café in every neighborhood for fresh pastries and specialty coffee drinks. Because Ames also houses Iowa State University, quick-serve options and fast-food places are the norm. However, don’t let that fool you into thinking that healthy eating and fine dining are unavailable here. You will find many locally owned restaurants that serve homemade foods made from Iowa-grown fruits and vegetables, upscale urban eateries with traditional Italian dishes and restaurants ready with good old-fashioned American food. No matter what your taste, you’re likely to find it this beloved small town.
