We ate breakfast here on our one night stayover in Fort Collins. We stated at the Armstrong Hotel in the same building (highly recommended) and the desk clerk recommended a breakfast spot a couple of blocks away. We saw that Choice offered breakfast so we stopped there instead.
As we were waiting for our food I checked out the beer offerings. Holy cow! What a fantastic selection of local brews including aged bottles. Chimay White on tap? Avery's Beast and Samaels? Even DFH 90 which we didn't see too much of in Colorado. There was also a great selection of belgians, new and aged.
I have to say that I was very disappointed we didn't find this place the previous night. It will definitely be on our "must visit" list if we ever get back to Fort Collins.
Stop there to eat and drink - you will not be disappointed.

Okay. I will start by saying that I love this place. When I first walked in they had Le Terrior on tap. So I came back to get a confirmation on my first impression. They consistently have new and ahead of the curve craft beers. I was there on thier patio (a couple of tables outside the front door) and trying one of the best offerings from the Ft. Collins Brewery, Spring Bock, when one of the guys brought me a sample of Avery's 14 that they just tapped. Had one, loved it, like the offer of a sample. The sandwiches are amazing and the best butcher shop around. A must go in Ft. Collins if you enjoy great beer.

I've been to Choice City a couple of times, and I have been very happy each time. If recommended, I would suggest to go for dinner as their food is fantastic. But I have gone for lunch before and been pleased with their deli sandwiches as well.
Located near trendy Old Town Ft. Collins, they are far enough away that parking is easy but still close enough to be part of the downtown atmosphere. Inside is a rather small room with a deli counter and a great listing of good quality of meats. There are some tables throughout and seating for outside as well. Rather low key but very intimate.
The food is fantastic and worthy of a 5+. If you go for lunch there is a list of sandwiches available. I've tried the club and the philly and have been impressed with the quality. If you go for dinner, you have a few choices to pick out. You can order food directly from the deli and have the cook fix it anyway you want. Another option is to choice from their chiefs specials which change frequently but have a good variety of foods. One choice that I was surprised at how good was their Ostiridge plate. Also I would recommend their steaks as well. I'm getting hungry just think about it.
Their beer selection is great. They have a great selection of hard to find and even aged beers. For instance they had Chimay White as well as Duchesses on tap last time I went. They also had a 2002 La Folie. The prices are a little high but well within approachable levels. They did have a good variety of Colorado beers, NB, Odells, Avery, Great Divide and other selections such as Victory, Stone, DFH among others. And they had a lot of seasonal or rare find beers as well. The selection is fantastic. They also have a great wine selection as well.
Overall I have gone to Choice City a few times and will continue to go into the future. This is a must go when traveling to Ft. Collins.

what an awesome place, in my opinion. Okay, okay before I get all excited and spazzy, let's start from the beginning. What I noticed about Choice City first was the quality of their meats, Prime and some Choice. The pork, veal and lamb was all excellent beyond reproach. They were being tutored on the fine art of cutting by a retired butcher. The sausage was top notch. The deli was muy, muy good. Then I noticed they started adding some choice, value wines. Then the beer started showing up. And taps. And it was all local. And soon they were getting seasonal pony kegs from Odell and New Belgium. And they kept adding to their bottle selection, and a few more taps. They were busy. They started having wine and beer tastings. The Monday night football-brat and beer party I went to was a hoot and holler event.
A few nights ago I noticed they had knocked down a wall and doubled their size. They were offering dinners. They were advertising a four course beer dinner with Doug Odell. My wife and I stopped to pay our respects. I drooled over the NBB kriek, Mantra and Saison on tap. There was Odell's Nip and a few standard Odell beers, and a couple of colors of Chimay on tap. The bottle selection included all of Avery's big beers, and new offerings. An empty Samael bottle was prominently displayed (empty as a sign of encouragement). There were bottles from Lefthand, and other locals.
The menu is easy: Pick a cut of meat from the case at market price, and choose one side from a menu of sides (grilled asparagus, mashers, carrots, brussel sprouts was the choice the other night.) Meals come with salad and bread. The meat was perfectly grilled/seared and seasoned -- that's P-E-R-F-E-C-T! And I have much R-E-S-P-E-C-T for what the guys are doing at Choice City. Please stop here and enjoy prime meat, and choice beer. Wow, how easy is that?
