Fort Collins

Escape to the past, present and future of delicious Mexican food and drinks: the place where it all began – the Fort Collins Rio, right in the heart of Old Town. Locally owned and featuring what many say is the best patio in Old Town, the Fort Collins Rio has long had a spirit all its own.
