We waited until nearly the last meal in town to visit Choice City. I wasn't sure what to expect. It is not a beer bar... that was clear as soon as we walked in. It is a butcher shop/deli and sandwich place. It is a functional retail store that has great beer on-tap and great food. That, my friends, is freaking cool.

We stopped in on a Monday sometime after 2pm. It was slow and we got helped right away (order at the counter). We ordered a couple beers (Saison Dupont on-tap = yummy!) and some sandwiches. We didn't wait long. My buffalo burger was awesome. I also got a bite of a Buffalo burger rueben and it was amazing! IMO, the food is the star of the show. Great sandwiches!

There is plenty of great beers on-tap and in bottles. What a great place to grab lunch and a beer.

I want to make it clear to people that this is more of a store, a retail store than a bar and it is more of a sandwich shop than a full on restaurant. It is a great mix however. I loved it. This isn't the place you'd come to have many beers, IMO, but it is a great place to grab something to eat and have a beer.

Just remember, this is not a bar! (1,132 characters)

Visited twice. First time was a lovely experience. Nice older counter style service at times, we visited on a Sunday, table service. Our server was attentive, friendly and very personable. Selected had nice locals which was cool. We went back the next day for breakfast and upon standing in line to get a table (11 a.m. on the dot) we were told they were only doing counter service and no longer serving breakfast, even though we made it clear we were interested in breakfast. I would have liked to see the customer service a bit better in that regard, but it's our fault for not getting there and seated in time and I understand the kitchen switches over (I guess). Not a huge deal though. The sandwich was outstanding and we can't wait to go back and hopefully try breakfast! (785 characters)

Eating and having a brew on a weekday afternoon, off time. Still quite busy, always a line. Not super fast service but that seemed to be more of a function of inadequate staffing than a lack of willingness to jam by the employees.

Food was especially good, albeit a bit pricey, but the quality shant be dissed in any way for quality and tasty-ness. Rueben sandwich, awesome, wing-burger, great, tuna and PBJ also damn tasty. Sandwiches are by no means small, nor is there any lack of meat. Everything was quite tasty.

Pretty good selection of beer, both on tap and in the cooler, but the cooler is consume in house only so that kinda limits your actual selection to how much you can consume while you're there. (714 characters)

Choice city is doing it right. The brunch at this place will change your life. The food is some of the best in town and I love the small atmosphere inside. This can lead to a wait from time to time but it normally proves to be worth it. They always have a great selection of beers and just recently they had Plinly the Younger on tap! If you're in Fort Collins and want to find some rare hard to find beers this is the place for you. (433 characters)
