The place is usually crowded, so the pizza must be quite good and it is for this area. However, the pizza lacks flavor (bland sauce, tasteless crust), is rather expensive, and since I am not a beer drinker find the loud party atmosphere no fun. When I state loud, I mean, shout at the person seated next to you loud.... More

Coming from the east coast, I had no big expectations for pizza on the western slope of Colorado. Boy was I wrong. At Hot Tomato, they cover the basics and then some. You can make your pizza to order with choice of regular or Sicilian crust - pick your sauce and toppings. But, why would you go to all that... More

Excellent pizza and beers on tap. Tried the Amore special (Canadian bacon, sliced pear, dried cherries, arugula and mozzarella) pizza had amazing crust and creative topping that worked amazingly on the pallet. The new Belgium beers are great Colorado beers. Comfy environment. Second time I have been to restaurant and I will stop every time I drive through.

One of the best pizza places in the valley! One of the owners is from New Jersey. Bonus: a large sampling of New Belgium (Fort Collins) beer! Definitely a must-go if you're in Fruita.

The punches add up fast and are very affordable for a family of 3. The large custom pies are yummy but pricey. Bar with lots of drafts make a great place to hang after a day out on the trails!

This place is the BEST restaurant in Fruita!! Great vibe, great food. Lots of specialties. Salads are super fresh too. Slices and full size pizzas. Stromboli and Sausage rolls are not to be overlooked!

You can't go wrong here! Especially on double punch Tuesdays. The trick is to order premade pizza by the slice. Then you get double punches on their frequent pizza eater card. I can feed myself and two kids for $12. Pretty awesome!

I visited with my son, so it was nice to be able to order single slices rather than a whole pizza. It was great! Also, the chocolate chip cookies were awesome!
