Dining in Ft. Collins/Loveland, CO

jcattles Dec 9, 2009 02:55 PM

I'm looking for some dining recs in the Ft. Collins/Loveland area. We don't get down all that often and usually eat at Smashburger or Carrabbas. I'm interested in something locally owned, not a chain. We could go for just about any type of food except asian. Mexican with killer green chile is always a hit. Steaks, burgers, diners, Italian (Not Bisetti's) (Will do any place that serves good Pho, though) NoDon't want to spend a ton of money, but willing to pay for it if it's good, filling & satisfying. Sorry I'm not more specific. I'm familiar with the area and don't mind driving. Thanks

    Jay's Bistro (a favorite)
    Rasta Pasta (an experience)
    Suehiro Sushi ( I know you didn't want Asian but I couldn't help myself.)

      Jay's Bistro sounds amazing. I had no idea Ft. Collins had a restaurant like this. Can't wait to try it.
      Lol on Sushi-I'd eat there, but my hubby won't. :(

        Since you said you were going "down" to Ft. Collins, I assume that you might be coming from Wyoming. Ever been to Oliver's in Sheridan? Fantastic!

          I haven't. I live in Laramie which is a little over an hour north of Ft. Collins. We are around 5 hours south of Sheridan, & don't usually go there unless we have a reason. It sure is a beautiful part of the state though. I'll have to remember Oliver's the next time we head up that way. Thanks for the tip!

      Don't have much to add, except that at the bottom of this thread were a list of similar threads, this one seems like it might be helpful: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/531302
