Food was homecooked, but very ordinary and average in taste. Price was good. No atmosphere, but I guess just homey staff keeps them going with llunch regulars.

Try their Long Horn burger, my favorite!! You will like the home cooked menu. And they will make it the way you want it, too. It's where the locals go for great food. Have never had a bad meal there and have been going to Mo's for the last 20 plus years.

This home-town restaurant has been in old town Fort Collins for more than 30 years and always serves excellent food. Their cheeseburgers are the best in town! The back patio is nice and quiet and the service is outstanding. Check them out and you will leave very satisfied!

Just repeating what some others have said: Go for the Thursday Persian plate. The owners are from Afghanistan and each week they introduce a different authentic dish. Delicious!!!

On Thursdays, the Cafe serves up Afghani food, which is delicious. Yesterday, they served grilled chicken; some kind of delicious rice, carrots & raisins; a salad combining fresh mint, chopped radishes, chopped tomatoes, and chopped red onions; spinach; and gravy. I missed out on it, but they saved some for me for breakfast this morning, and it was very good... More

Every Tuesday morning my best friend and I come here for breakfast. We bounced around for a long time trying to find "our spot" but felt that with the busy life of Ft Collins it was difficult to feel remembered and valued as a loyal customer at many other popular breakfast spots. The service here is amazing and friendly. They... More

Have tried to find good cafés in Fort Collins with my friend but we have to agree that Mountain Cafe is the best! Great food at a low price and wonderful service! It has a very welcoming feel and we are now weekly regulars! Definitely worth the stop!

I have been stopping by for lunch at Mountain for going on five years (I work in the area). Don’t let the size, ‘hole-in-wall’ location or décor of this restaurant fool you—the place is SCRUPULOUSLY clean and the food is FIRST-RATE. The owner, Moe (whom I believe is from Afghanistan) can flat cook. Best part is, the ‘A-Team’ (Moe) is... More
