It is safe to say that Mi Casita is the premiere place for Mexican cuisine in the Ames area. They have an excellent menu on both selection and quality. This is complimented by a courteous, efficient staff. I have been here a number of times, and not once had a bad experience. When looking at the food specifically, it is simply delicious. They use great, fresh ingredients and prepare them expertly. Their menu is large but easy to follow and well categorized. They even have a vegetarian section for those who require it. The service is friendly and very speedy. I have never had to deal with an uncooperative employee. In fact, their owner is frequently out waiting or bussing tables and making sure customers are comfortable. Although some of them may give the impression there is a language barrier, I can assure you, they'll get it right. Lastly, if you decide give this place a go, make sure to check their specials on the board. They frequently rotate some chef specialties that are not seen on the menu. The last one I had was the Hawaiian Quesadilla - quesadilla with ham and pineapple - it was fantastic! Honestly, whether it's for a special night out or a casual taco run, Mi Casita provides the top Mexican dish for this area.
In my opinion the best Mexican restaurant in the Ames area. They have the standard Mexican favorites, but have done a really good job of offering some new items like Mexican Fettuccine, Mexican Lasagna and it is the only place in a 50 mile radius I can get Fish Tacos. Very reasonably priced, and super fast.
Mi Casita is the BEST!!!!! They are REALLY friendly!! They have GOOD customer service!!! The owner/manager is out waiting on people too!! I'm really proud to have a fine eating establishment like this in nevada.

No coffee served here. This is your grandfather's Starbuck's! This fast food diner was founded by the Starbuck family some six decades ago, although the "new" owner has only owned it the past three decades. Locals come here for the jumbo beefburger, a massive maid-rite style ground beef sandwich normally served with ketchup, mustard, onion and pickle. Starbuck's is also known for their ice cream. Craving a butterscotch shake? This is the spot. Good food all around. The tenderloin. The onion rings... You order and pay at the window. You'll be given a number and they'll deliver the food to your table. Likely in a brown paper bag. The decor is spartan, a bit of a dive, a comment made with the most complimentary of intentions. Just a 10-15 minute drive from Ames on Lincoln Way.
Love this place & really the only reason to ever come to Nevada. I always get the double cheeseburger w/cheese balls & a banana shake. My kids love their chicken strips. My wife really enjoys their bacon cheeseburger. Best ice cream in the area.
I don't care what they sell; I'll order it, because I love that they are here and represent a good small business. Yay for Starbucks Nevada, IA.

A surprisingly good Chinese restaurant in Nevada. This place has righteously displaced the disgusting Golden Wok that occupied the same location a few years earlier. This is the only place I have safely enjoyed the Chinese Buffet. There is a somewhat limited selection on the buffet, but items are well-prepared, tasty and most importantly very fresh. The full-menu offers a vast selection of Chinese favorites and in my opinion the menu items are a clear step above the buffet. The buffet is good, the menu items are very good. I would encourage those interested in Happy House to try their menu items first, then the buffet. Everything is very reasonably priced, particularly their lunch specials. Restaurant is clean, help is attentive and very friendly. One of my local favorites.
