I have been living in the general Ft. Collins area for almost 2 years now and had not heard about this place. I just happened to stop in one day with a friend and I walked away impressed. The food here is amazing. It is a slight bit pricey, but I usually am fine with paying whatever prices for food. It's nothing fancy, burgers and sandwiches mostly. You can also get cheese platters or meat/cheese combo platters. They serve breakfast also, but I have only ever been there for lunch, so I can not comment on their breakfast selection.

The beer selection is quite good in my opinion. They have beer on tap you can't find anywhere else in Old Town (to my knowledge). The bottle selection is decent too. Myself and a couple friends got a bottle of 2002 La Folie here, so you can find some interesting beer here. I will always take quality of quantity so even if they don't have as many taps as some people would like, the quality of beer offered is above pretty much anyone else in town.

The staff is friendly, mostly. The people who take and cook the food orders are not very friendly, but the wait staff and owner(?) are quite friendly and are willing to pick a beer for you if you are unfamiliar with the selections.

I was not able to make it this weekend, but I fully intend on making Choice City a weekly stop. It's my favorite place in Ft. Collins.

Excellent visit here. Great tap list and a nice bottle selection. However, the food was the real star. Everything we tried was superb. Thinking about moving to Ft. Collins just to have Choice City nearby. Kidding, but you get my meaning.

This place is great! I went on $1 slider night. Those were amazing. The beer selection is outstanding. Lots of great Colorado beers but other well-known breweries. You order at the counter and pick up your food at the counter, too.

Amazon beer selection with awesome food as well. Are here twice while in Fort Collins. The bison ribeye was the best steak I have ever had. I also had the butchers salad for lunch and that was great as well. The beer selection had something for everyone and was great.

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!

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.
