10 Places You Must Try In Fort Collins

10 Places You Must Try In Fort Collins

Eat food and eat a lot of it.

Small town Fort Collins is filled with tons of places for great food--whether that be breakfast, lunch, or a midnight snack. Although I haven't had enough opportunities (or cash) to try out everything in FoCo (so I know I must be missing a lot!), here are a few must-try restaurants to start.


You will be stuffed after eating at this burger bar. Make your own burger, get a shake, and sit down to watch a game. Stuft is the place to be before a big game or where you have to try if you are craving a big, juicy burger.

2)Cheba Hut

Toasted subs, salads, and the munchies (I'm not kidding!). Cheba Hut gives you a variety of options to stop in for lunch or dinner, and at a fair price as well. You might just go in for the Munchies Menu alone.


People rave about Snooze across the country, trust me I hear it all the time. "You live in Fort Collins? Have you been to Snooze?!" I have to say Snooze is the best breakfast place of all time and you'll have a hard time finding someone who says otherwise.

4)Big City Burrito

I won't lie--either you like it or you don't. You can spot the green awning a mile away. But the name says it all if you are looking for a burrito or tortilla to get you through the day.


Based on the name alone, Fuzzy's Taco Shop makes you smile. It is the place to get your taco-fill and won't break your bank (thank god!). Forget about Taco Bell, Fuzzy's is where you want to be.

6)Walrus Ice Cream

This is the Fort Collins ice cream shop and it's almost 30 years old. Walrus Ice Cream is the cutest little shop, with the best ice cream, and its just where you go. Of course there are other options, but if you know about Walrus, thats all you need.

7)Coopersmith's Pub & Brewing

If you are looking for a hearty burger and some beer, this is the place to go. For those under the age of 21, I strongly recommend the cream soda (and don't worry it's supposed to be red!).

8)Alleycat Coffee House

As it happened, I was at Alleycat more times throughout the night than I was during the day. This hipster, 24-hour coffee shop is great to get some studying done, warm up on a cold winter day, or just relax between classes. It's not too far of a walk off the Oval, so if you have some time definitely try it out. The coffee is delicious!

9)Mo Jeaux's Bar and Grill

Mo Jeaux's is beer and burgers (but what place isn't in Fort Collins?). It gets crazy for big games, has pool tables available, and gives you a quality meal with it. There's southern BBQ and Cajun dishes, not to mention an amazing atmosphere you find yourself in.

10)The Yeti Bar and Grill

The Yeti was awesome for my family and I. Although, I wasn't there for the night-life, rumor has it that its pretty awesome at the bar. I loved the appetizers for sure and my meal as well. There is even a yeti inside!

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.


When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

My Strange Obsession: Bibibop Addition

I am obsessed with Bibibop.


I am obsessed with Bibibop.

Sounds strange, right? But it's true.

For those of you who have never had the opportunity to experience Bibibop, Bibibop is an Asian Grill set up similar to Chipotle. You're able to go down the line of food, choosing a base (always go with the purple rice), hot toppings (they all slap), protein (the tofu is to die for), some cold toppings (a great way to try kale for the first time), and a sauce (if you don't get the Yum Yum sauce, you're weird.)

And, let me tell you, the final product is always delicious.

I hadn't been introduced to Bibibop until this past year, but once I tried it for the first time, I never looked back. Now I am constantly craving the taste of the Yum Yum sauce. I usually hit up Bibibop once every two weeks, but if I was rich, I would probably eat it every other day.

Though, admittedly, the prices are pretty good. And they celebrate meatless Mondays with 20% off to anyone who doesn't get meat in their bowl.

Plus, it's pretty healthy. Unlike most restaurants, like Chipotle, where your somewhat healthy meal can instantly become bad for you with the addition of something on the menu, Bibibop's entire menu provides nutritional value and offers gluten-free and vegan options.

Basically, Bibibop is the most underrated and most delicious restaurant in the world, which is why my obsession with it runs so deep. Although I would usually admit that obsessions are unhealthy, I think this one might be okay.
