Hot Tomato in Fruita, CO is worth a visit!

Fruita is great for biking, but the dining options are, shall we say, hit or miss. I found a major hit this weekend: Hot Tomato. It's a pizza and beer place (there are a few other items, but mostly pizzas), you order at the counter and then servers bring your pies to your table. Great spot - the patio is cool and inviting, the servers are very friendly - but most of all, the pizza was excellent. Definitely the best NY-style pies I've had outside of the Front Range (I know, faint praise, but this is Fruita we're talking about - not exactly a food mecca), with inventive topping combos. Well worth a visit if you're in town or looking for a good stop when driving by on I-70.

    Yep, Hot Tomato's pizza is very good. I get it regularly and am never disappointed. The only pizza in the Grand Valley I like better is Enzo's but not by much(though I don't order pizza from Enzo's often because the other menu choices are so good and Hot Tomato is more convenient for me for take out.)

      Good to know. We go to Country Jam there every year and are always (well at least I am always) looking for somewhere decent to eat to get us out of the campground for a few hours.
