I havnt been to Coopersmiths in years, but we did like the beer and the variety of brews they had to offer. How can you go wrong with Green Chili beer?

I haven't been in years either. I live too far south to make it worthwhile. We always overtipped the bartenders and got great service and really small checks. But that has been a while ago. I wonder how hard it is to keep the passion for running a brewpub after so many years? I wonder if it starts to become a grind after a while.

How can you go wrong with Green Chili Beer is right! Sometimes they have a specialty like a lambic or mead, too.

Isn't all of life just a big grind?

How about Sanford's on Harmony?
Unique atmosphere, killer burgers (although always a bit heavy on the salt)
Also a location in Rapid City.

I second Nordy's for BBQ

Fort Collins has some great places to eat, but nothing beats the Pickle Barrel for lunch! I've moved to the Four Corners region of the state and still dream of the Funky Punky sandwich.

Cooper Smith's used to be one of our hangouts in college. They had this awesome steak sandwich. I always thought their beer was just so-so, but it was a fun place to eat before hitting the rest of Old Town.

Charco Broiler is one of the best in town!

Nordy's is the best BBQ in NOCO!

If you like fish and seafood there is a restaurant named "Fish" in Old Town. Definitely the best seafood in the area. If going for a quick meal, I ahve to agree with the Big City Burrito claim previously made.

Also check out the aspen grill on the CSU campus next to the student center. Very good and you get to support the local students

It's been years, but I use to take dates to the Charco Broiler. I also remember the Rio Grande in Old Town, back when they were at their first location. Back then I think they were actually known more for their food.
