~A Little Bit of Everything~
This small family restaurant has a cozy atmosphere, great staff and the food is the classic comfort food you remember from your childhood. From their best selling Monte Cristo sandwich, to French Dips, massive burgers and generous fries, chicken fried steak and the best pie around! And don’t forget the oh-so-delicious Corned Beef and Cabbage served every St. Paddy’s day, but also once a month to help appease those CBC cravings! Swing by Fat Alberts and dip your toes in the water, you won’t regret it!
The Paragon Family Restaurant
- Located at: 1717 23rd Ave, Greeley, CO 80634 (Next to the bank)
- Phone #: (970) 356-1999
: This family owned restaurant may not be anything fancy, and the decor is slightly outdated, but we promise you won’t be disappointed. With great sandwiches, tasty Greek food choices, gigantic breakfast portions, and an unbeatable price, you can’t lose! The Paragon is a comfortable place to enjoy a nice, hearty meal and has so many menu items there is sure to be something to please everyone. Oh! I recommend the Chicken Fried Steak Benedict (TO SHARE) – it’s to die for!
The Outback at Boomerang Links:
- Located at: 2725 W 10th St, Greeley, CO 80634
- Phone #: (970) 356-8400
This cozy little restaurant is the hidden gem of Greeley! Enjoy a few strokes out on the golf course and come in for some cold drinks, or come in for the fantastic food. With a smaller menu but BIG taste, you will be sure to find something to sink your teeth in to and satisfy those hunger pangs. Their specials are priced so well and change often and they also offer sumptuous Prime Rib every Friday and Saturday. Don’t forget to try the Buffalo Sandwich and Buffalo Chips – Yum!
Corleone’s Drive Thru
- Located at: 7309 W 4th St, Greeley, CO 80634
- Phone #: (970) 351-8958
: Okay, so while this is technically not a sit down restaurant, I assure you Corleone’s offers just as much in its current capacity as many larger restaurant chains. They offer a convenient drive thru and even have delivery options for a small fee. From breakfast burritos, to warm & delicious soups, cold and hot sandwich options and daily specials, you’re sure to find something you’ll soon love. Did we mention their delicious potato, pasta and garden salad options (in LARGE proportions & we recommend the Blackened Chicken Salad – MmmMmm!), and brownies that are finger licking good? With so much homemade goodness, this little place packs a punch in your mouth, not in your wallet!
- Located at: 900 23rd Ave., Greeley, CO 80634
- Phone #: (970) 515-6492
Ahh, Santeramo’s. A most delicious guilty and fulfilling pleasure. This restaurant tucked away in a cove of trees where you can sit in shade on a summer day or in the cozy confines of the restaurant was one of our greatest finds. The food is so flavorful, zesty and bountiful in proportion it’s sure to knock your socks off! Momma says “No One Leaves Hungry” and boy did she mean it. This pizza house offers classic Italian dishes with homemade pastas, savory and juicy meats and sauces, homemade breads and crusts for the pizzas, calzones and sandwiches and even has low-calorie options! Now if that isn’t the perfect comfort food, I don’t know what is! Enjoy a platter (and we mean platter) of Italian Nachos to share with friends while sipping on an insanely cheap 32oz beer, or gobble down a healthy portion of meat lasagna and finish with a delicious dessert option. Whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed!
- Located at: 1229 10th Ave., Greeley, CO
- Phone #: (970) 353-4844
: Okay, so this restaurant isn’t in Weld County but rather Larimer County, but it’s so darn close you could nearly skip across the county line! We thought it was so good, we made an exception and have added it to our list! Best Greek around, hands down! Not only are the gyros the most amazing thing to touch your tongue, with their homemade pita bread and hearty portions of meat, but their tzatziki sauce is creamy and should be world famous! Looking for vegetarian options? They’ve got them! The Spanakopita is melt in your mouth good and comes with tzatziki dipping sauce. There are dozens of options from gyros, to platters, pizza, salads and pasta salads, and their dessert leaves your tummy happy (if you can save room for it! We dare you to try!). If for some reason you’re not craving Greek, they also offer American food options and kids menu items. Go ahead and try it, your stomach will thank you!
- Located at: 5864 Sky Pond Dr., Loveland, CO 80538 (The Promenade Shops at Centerra) & 2842 Council Tree Ave.,Ste 149 Ft Collins, CO 80525

Ambrosia Asian Bistro
: This newly remodeled Asian restaurant will knock off your socks with their bold and spicy flavors. Not in to spice? They’ve got plenty of options for you too! From their unique side salad with peanut sauce, to chicken and beef dishes, delicious and plentiful noodles and even several sushi options from Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese roots. Their helpful and friendly staff will be sure to keep your glasses and your stomach full with their amazing customer service and food choices. With so many options available, you can’t miss the chance to dine at Ambrosia Asian Bistro!
- Located at: 3636 W 10th St, Greeley, CO 80634
- Phone #: (970) 392-2925
: El Cielo is a wonderful little Mexican restaurant which quite possibly serves the best Queso Fundido ever (melted cheese and chorizo for those of you scratching your head), tasty chili rellenos with just the perfect crispness and covered in your choice of mild-hot green chili, build your own choices with some of the best carne asada around, seafood and children’s options, breakfast burritos (ah-mazing), the fluffiest sopapillas (don’t forget the honey!) and even to-go options for those with little time but a rumbling tummy. One of my favorite traditional dishes with a twist are the Alambre Fajitas which are traditional fajitas but are topped with a heaping pile of melted mozzarella cheese, and served with the normal garnishes (lettuce, tomatoes, guac & sour cream) Yummy! The cheese just makes them pop! Hurry down there today and find something delectable that will make your tummy smile. Oh, and don’t forget to ring the bell if you liked it!
