Perkins Restaurant in Ames

Restaurant - Breakfast

Perkins is Perkins, but the Ames Perkins is more than just a restaurant. Its where drunk people magically appear after the bars close and they need a place to eat stacks of pancakes until 5am. If you have never made a 4am trip to Perkins then you are missing out.

Service staff is hilarious, a couple who just play off each other really well. the food‘s pretty good, and they‘re open all night, what more could you ask for... besides beer.

The food is completely unappetizing. Whatever you get it almost always tastes like overcooked gruel. The best part is the unlimited coffee, even though it tastes like dirty water, and being open 24 hours.

I love the servers, and they‘ve always got a ton of muffins to choose from.

Advertising your restaurant as being the "place to go after the bars close down" is a horrible idea... But I guess that does explain why it smell like vomit as soon as you walk in. Very unappetizing. Never had good food here. Worst Perkins I‘ve ever been to. Will never go back!

Perkins. It‘s the old persons choice to go. And the young persons place to sober up. I don‘t love the food at perkins. but its where to go after the bars and after the football games. The staff is normal. I did have a great experience with a waiter there though. He was very unique and personable. Made my meal a lot better. When a waiter can pull off being sarcastic and almost rude to me, and still make me like him? Wow. The food is always constant. Good to eat when you need to recover. Chicken tender melts are great. And being able to get almost anything subbed out for another side(except eggs. Darn it I hate eggs.) is great. Never had a bad experience here, but I wouldn‘t go eat there when I want Great food.
