Dining in Ft. Collins/Loveland, CO

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

    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!
