Visiting Greeley, CO
I'll be visiting Greeley, CO for three days next week, and need some recommendations for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I won't be going out for any big occasions, just looking for favorite local places that are in the reasonable price range. Things to do and visit are welcome as well. Thanks.
Greeley has a lot of authentic hole-in-the-wall, family-owned Mexican restaurants, none of which I can name because I hardly ever have reason to go there. I think there is a Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant. It's a small local chain with a gringo-ized place menu (i.e., no tongue, no menudo) and powerful, tasty margaritas (limit is 3 per customer). If you like thin-crust, NY-style pizza, there is an Abo's. This small local chain is a lot better than, say, the likes of Blackjack's or Papa John's. There's a pub called Cables. I've never been to the original in Greeley, but I recently ate at the newer one in Fort Morgan. Just had a small OK individual pizza and a crisp but otherwise undistinguished salad. Acceptable food and at least just a two-location operation in a city otherwise home to a lot of national chains.
Farmer's Inn used to be pretty good, but it's been many, many years since I've eaten there. It's typical Colorado mexican food.

Just wondering if there were any updated recs? Accompanying my husband on a business trip for my first visit to CO (for Boulder, Frasca reservation made and hope to have time for Salts and Bitter Bar; Tatamagouche has me covered for Denver). We'll be in Greeley also, but just need lunch options.
Looking for good Mexican and green chili, so I've come across Alberto's, Cazadores, El Pueblito or Rio Grande. Thoughts? Thanks so much.

Thanks for the reply. Good to know if we have to get up there again. I could go for lengua tacos right now. We ended up with a nice late lunch at El Pueblito.
