We're coming to Fort Collins tomorrow to spend several days looking around and enjoying the beautiful Fall weather. Any recommendations on good places to eat for lunch or dinner? How about a good steak place for a birthday dinner (my 60th ) on Sunday?

Thanks to all who have provided info about the area from an earlier post. It's been very helpful.

Fort Collins has many, many choices when it comes to restaurants. We like to eat on the sunny patios in Old Town. Austin's and Coopersmith's are favorites of ours. Austin's might have the steak for which you are searching. Lubick's Steak House in Old Town is also supposed to be pretty good, but I have not tried it.

Jay's is really good as is Canyon Chop house for steak. The breweries are also fun; New Belgium and Odell's. Coopersmith's has a great location in Old Town and good pizza is Beaujo's in Old Town.

Canino's, Bisetti's both on College, about 100N (Bisetti's) and 600 or so south (Canino's) are about our favorite Italian. Fish on the pedestrian mall, west side is very good too. For Asian we love Lulu's, also on College, about 300 S.

Lulu's is indeed good Asian.
HuHot is a Mongolian BBQ place in old town and is decent.
I like Nordy's BBQ out on I25 (near the Event center)

I have not been to any "steak" places in Fort Collins as I usually prefer to grill my own steaks.

koopdaddy, we tried Nordy's once and didn't care for it, not that big a buffet fan at my age. After living in TX for the last 30 years we kind of got spoiled on BBQ.

BBQ Bob's on south 14th in Loveland, right by Schmidt's Bakery is good and resonably priced BBQ. There's also a place in Johnstown, but that's a ways to go for BBQ.

Another place that we just tried is Okole Maluna (sp?) on Main in Windsor. I perform occassionally at Windsor Community Playhouse and a lot of the locals had recommended it. We tried it last week and were very impressed.

Okole is very good. We will definitely be going back there. I tried BBQ Bob's, it was simple but to me, average. Not that it was bad, I would go there again. Just nothing amazing to me. Of course I guess I am a bit biased since I think I can make it better, but that is just me

One of our default lunch places is Sofia's Bistro in Loveland. It's on the northbound side of the divided part of 287, about 14th or so, a few blocks south of Eisenhower. Eclectic menu.

Several places have come and gone in this location but Sofia's looks like it's in for the long haul. It's the only enterprise in this building that we've ever had to wait for a table, although not ever for long.

Sofia's was good. (service was slow).
Austin's was great (the chicken pot pie was terrific.)
Jay's was very good if a bit pricey.
Coopersmith's - great lunch
Canyon Chop House - highlight of the trip. Great steak, great sides, great service.

Glad you enjoyed them! Did you get to sit in the vault at the Canyon Chop House?
