    Avogadro's Number: Quirky Place to Eat-Vegan & Sandwiches

    by AVG2319 Written Aug 24, 2008

    Avogadro's Number is a popular spot for Vegetarian food in Fort Collins. They make their own homemade temphe. We just ordered Turkey sandwiches, which were good. The inside has many cool murals painted on the walls. They have a huge outdoor space, a tree house for the kids, and live music. I would recommend eating outdoors if the weather is nice. This place has a very eclectic style and a cool atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: sandwich

    Island Grill: This is my Island in the Sun

    by Caolonm Written Jul 18, 2008

    The Island Grill serves carribean/american fare in an out of the way location that is easy to miss. The ambience is that of an island tiki bar combined with a sports bar. The grill is split into three areas including a patio, a main dining area and a pool hall. There are several TVs showing different games and sporting events. I however come for the food.

    Favorite Dish: While the Grill seems to lean heavily on dishes showcasing shrimp, my party ordered the steak fajita tacos (tender steak served with lettuce, tomatoes, rice, beans, and pico de gallo), the Ma Hi Tacos (jerked, grilled, or blackened, we had ours jerked with cabbage, melon salsa, rice and beans), and a Big Island Burger made to order with green chili, jalapenos, and pepper jack cheese (with standard accompaniments and sweet potato fries). Everything seemed dome to perfection. The burger was medium well and juicy and the tacos were fantastic. Props for the cabbage on the fish! The atmosphere is not my fave and I'm guessing that it may get rowdy on a Saturday night, but for a lunch time treat, I highly recommend the Island Grill. It also appears they have expanded to Greeley!

    Rasta Pasta: Great Summer Dinning

    by linnielou327 Updated Nov 4, 2007

    I love going to Rasta Pasta on a summer night for dinner, not only is the food great but the atmosphere is wonderful! A pretty recent article from the Coloradoan...

    "The good folks at Rasta Pasta have a fresh outlook on food — make it unique and it will sell. And this strategy has worked well for the nearly 10 years the restaurant has been open in Old Town.

    The cuisine is a little bit Italian, a little bit Caribbean and a little bit of something you’ve never experienced before.

    The staff is very representative of the Rastafarian way of life — enjoy the music, enjoy the food, just kick back and relax, man. But just because they are very chilled out doesn’t mean they aren’t paying attention to your needs. Your drinks are never empty, even when your belly is full and you need a handcart to get you to your car.

    The menu isn’t the only unique thing at Rasta Pasta. Walking through the front doors is much like stepping into a Bob Marley album cover.

    The dining room is full of colorful art, wall hangings, table coverings and an eclectic mix of music. The bar resembles a tiki bar complete with bamboo wall coverings and a grass hut topper.

    Want to wash down your Natural Mystic (chicken and penne pasta with pineapple curry sauce) with something other than your standard soda or water? Rasta Pasta has a huge selection of domestic and imported beers, wine and mixed drinks.

    So whether you crave the unique, the exotic or just want some spicy spaghetti, hit up Rasta Pasta. Its wide variety of dishes will fill your stomach and recharge your creative juices."

    Favorite Dish: The Chicken Montego Bay is AWESOME! It is made with penne pasta and jerk chicken, pinapple, basil and vegetables sauteed in a white wine and light alfredo sauce.

    Its new, it has nice atmosphere, lots of tvs to watch for sporting events. The crowd seemed to be mostly in their 30's and 40's so they were civilized.

    Favorite Dish: I got some kind of chicken sandwich with avacado, it was good.

    Woody's Woodfired Pizza: Campus hang-out Pizzeria

    by yooperprof Written Jul 18, 2007
    Collegiate 'Za and Brewskis

    Woody's is conveniently located to the Laurel Street dorms and the Student Union at CSU. They have a nice outdoor patio and a comfy indoor bar as well. And I was very impressed when I came here late one night from a bar crawl and I was charged only one dollar for a gin and tonic!

    Woody's pizza crust is the highlight here, as the name suggests. Calzones are good, too.

    Deja Vu: Campustown coffee shop that's a local place

    Do you have a feeling that you've already been here?

    Actually, you'll probably get a stronger sense of "Deja Vu" if you go to the Starbucks that is across the street from here, since the Starbucks is exactly like the 4728 other shops that the Seattle based chain operates. Whereas Deja Vu is unique and precious and locally owned, which is exactly why you should patronize the place. Plus the fact that it's small and intimate and cozy and the baristas are friendly.

    Jasmine Garden: Really good Chinese food

    by yooperprof Written Jul 7, 2007

    My brother, sister-in-law and I were very impressed with Jasmine Garden when we ate here in June 2007. The food was very fresh, well-prepared, and nicely seasoned. It was definitely a grade or two better than the average Chinese restaurant, we though - and we all liked the low-key, elegant and restrained atmosphere as well.

    Jasmine Garden is located in a smallish shopping center about a mile from the CSU campus.

  • Crown Pub: A Fort Collins Low Point

    by foco0981 Written Mar 8, 2007

    This is by far the worst bar/restaurant I've been to in Fort Collins (and all of Colorado, for that matter). Service was extremely slow; at the table behind ours, two separate parties went through by the time we finished our meal. The food was barely edible, and the staff were some of the rudest I've ever encountered. I always go out of my way to be nice to waiters and waitresses when I go out to eat, having worked in the service industry myself, but the staff at the Crown Pub were shockingly rude.

    I will certainly never go back, and would discourage others from doing so as well. Fort Collins has many fine restaurants and bars - there is no need to waste your time here.

    Austin's: Local Grill

    Austin's

    I have no idea if Austens is a chain in Colorado, but it has an upscale chain feel. We were taken here by locals, who swear by it, and the place was packed when we arrived. The food was good and the service pleasant. No complaints here. The portions are large so come hungry.

  • charco-broiler: GOING DOWNHILL

    by camerzell Written Dec 2, 2006

    around for over forty years, charco broiler has been excellent. however, the last four times ive dined, the steak has been overcooked. my last dining experience, dec. 2, 2006, i ordered a six ounce filet and a lobster tail. the steak was overcooked, and the tail was boiled, not broiled as advertised, and the roll was cold and chewy. after my complaint, the waitress came back and said the manager took off one glass of wine, he or she didnt even have the decency to meet me face to face. i paid $45 for a half carafe of average wine, after sending the entire meal back. this is a complete reversal of what this restaurant has always provided its customers. in short, its awful, and i will never return!!!!

    Favorite Dish: none

    Everyday Joe's: Another convenient java joint

    by yooperprof Written Sep 19, 2006
    Joe to go, or to stay

    Friendly staff, frequent live-music, and plenty of space are the key features at Everyday Joe's, an easy-in, easy-out coffeehouse on the west side of downtown. Another attractive feature of the place is that it's run a community-oriented, non-profit organization. Oh - and free wireless access too.

    Coopersmith's: Creative Zymurgy on the Range

    by yooperprof Written Sep 14, 2006
    ale's well that ends well

    A Fort Collins' Institution. My brother and his wife take all their guests here - it's a tradition. Coopersmith's is wildly popular with college kids, yuppies, middle aged hospital administrators, and wilderness exploration leaders. It's the beer that's the big attraction: big-bodied, boldly flavored, unapologetically hoppy. For dining, there's a wide variety of vegetarian, pseudo-vegetarian, and "Al Gore"-friendly items on the menu. It's loud, convivial, and you'll feel good about yourself for eating and drinking here.

    Blackjack Pizza: College students live off of it

    by PinkFloydActuary Written May 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Who isn't excited about Blackjack?

    OK, it's carry-out/delivery only, costs about $5 with a coupon, and is a staple of the students (We were informed we placed 35 orders one semester). So it's not the greatest in the world (I place it above Pizza Hut and Dominos), but will crave a late night hunger wave. If you're visitng from out of state, definitely go to Beau Jo's or Old Chicago, unless you're almost out of money or want to relive a true college experience.

    Favorite Dish: Sausage or pepperoni pizza - you don't want to get too exotic.

    Tortilla Marissa's: Fabulous Mexican Food

    by PinkFloydActuary Written May 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    They know what's good for them at Marissa's

    Tortilla Marissa's is located on College Avenue, south of the campus. Here, you'll find a pretty decent Mexican restaurant with great service. The building itself is nothing special, but you shouldn't be too disappointed in the food. They don't really do anything that is a specialty item, just your standard menu (enchillads, tacos, burritos, fajitas, etc.) Prices are fairly reasonable, and this is an appropriate place to bring your family. Open for lunch and dinner. Rarely had a long wait for a table, except on the weekends.

    Favorite Dish: I'd go for the steak fajitas. Very flavorful, with plenty of steak and veggies. The flour tortillas are not dry and hold everything together nicely.

    C.B.. & Potts: Good burgers, just west of campus

    by PinkFloydActuary Written May 29, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For starters, Potts is defintiely a popular hangout, so if you're looking for a quiet dinner, you'll want to try somewhere else. It's located just to the west of the campus, which may help explain its popularity. Potts has a complete dinner menu (steaks, ribs, sanwiches), but what they are known for are the burgers. You get a lot to eat with one of these suckers, so be hungry when you go. They also have their own brewery (Big Horn Brewery) - so all of the beer they serve is made in their own breweries - don't try getting your Fat Tire here. Those of you who have been to RAM breweries across the country, this is the original.

    Favorite Dish: Being a microbrew, you'll want to try one of their homemade beers. Some of them change on a seasonal basis, but you may enjoy the Buttface Amber Ale or their Blonde beer.
