What review would you like to see?

I am always getting all kinds of offers, but knowing my unorganized style I never write them down. Leave me a comment for any restaurant, business or show that I should visit. And tell me why. I won't promise that I will make it, but if I don't know about it - I'm sure not to review it.

Starbuck's (Feb. 3rd)

(970) 224-3903

802 W Drake RdFort Collins, CO 80526

**2 out of 5 stars**

Wanting to top the day off with a cup of joe, I visited my closest Starbuck's. Whether you like it or not, there is a Starbuck's within walking distance of almost every American.

This Starbuck's is located in a Safeway, and is open most times of the day. For a late Saturday afternoon, the service was slow and the product was terrible. I am not a big coffee drinker, but when I do visit Starbuck's I usually get a Mocha Late. In my mind, this is a common drink. For some reason, it took forever for them to make the drink. The place was empty except for a few people sipping on drinks in the cafe. But for having no line, it did seem to take a long time to have my drink completed.

Once in hand, the Late was not mixed well at all. There was tons of syrup and chocolate in the bottom of the cup, and the drink did not taste quite right. It appeared that it was not mixed well, and I ended up only drinking half of it before tossing it. I hated throwing it away since Starbuck's is so seriously overpriced.

There are so many coffee places in Fort Collins, I can't imagine visiting a Starbuck's anytime soon. Feel free to recommend any places that you like, or those loyal to Starbuck's feel free to defend it. If you must have Starbuck's, visit a location other than the one in the Safeway.


Beau Jo's Pizza (Feb. 3rd)

(970) 498-8898

100 N College Ave Fort Collins, CO 80524

****4 out of 5 stars****

The best place to get a pie in Downtown Fort Collins, Beau Jo's delivers to its well established reputation. Known for its deep dish style pizza, and thick crust Beau Jo's is sure to have something for everyone.

On this Saturday, Beau Jo's was having a special on its pizza buffet. I'm unsure if they have this special often, but it was a great deal. For $7.50 a person, we were given access to 5 different kinds of pizza, a salad bar, and soup of the day. The pizza's ranged from pepperoni and saugsage to BBQ chicken. The pizza was hot and fresh from the oven. The pizza was great as usual, and the neat thing is that they bring honey to your table to accompany their thick crusts. It's a sweet treat after the mounds of cheese and toppings.

The salad bar had several choices of greens, and included the typical salad bar fare (cottage cheese, fruit, veggies, etc). The salad bar was well stocked and seemed fresh. The soup of the day was Cream of Brocoli. The soup was very thin and runny, and was not good at all. This was the only blemish on an otherwise great trip. You are able to eat as much as you would like, and visit the bar as much as you care to. For dessert, their was a "dessert pizza" that was like an apple crumble on their famous crust.

The staff was very friendly, and the location is great. In the warmer months, the patio is open for eating, drinking, and general people watching. Beau Jo's is a must visit for any traveler or common Fort Collinite.
