If you are in Ames make sure to get a pizza here on Denver crust and get your honey ready for the crust! And the cookies are as big as my head. Bomb place!

Great tasting pizza. Wide variety of crusts. Honey at the table to enjoy while enjoying the thick crusts. They also make wonderful, large cookies.
