Nice surprise!

We were pleasantly surprised by the fresh and interesting menu choices. The service was good and the food was delicious! My only complaint was that it was terribly noisy. We want to try it again when the weather is warm and we can use the outside seating.

Stopped In two restaurants on the highway, terrible weird menus and one soup And sandwich shop was out of soup and sandwiches! Circles old town and tried our luck here. Our server Allie was helpful and friendly. Good service. The was still eclectic but we decided on sandwiches after a thorough explanation by Allie. My braised pork was very flavorful... More

This is a smaller restaurant. It has a bar for adults and a TV for you to watch sports. It has artsy decor and wifi for the kids. The service was excellent. The food was ok. One of my daughters ordered the burger and the other ate the fries; they said it was good. My husband had a burger also,... More

The Food was good and the decorations were great, they have wifi. It's smaller then other restaurants. They have TVs for parents to watch the news and football. The people are very nice and you can ask them if they have stuff that isn't on the menu. The prices are good. The Fritz is a great place to go!!

The fritz has very good food, particularly for a smaller town like salida. Brusell sprouts were the stand out for me. All in all a nice place, perhaps slightly overpriced but a very good way to spend an evening.

Our family of 6 ate here in the afternoon. The food was delicious. No kid meals but they offered to cook grilled cheese. We opted to have them share a plain hamburger meal. The sweet potato fries were delicious. The meat was extremely tasty. The service was "relaxed". One waitress for the whole place and she did a great job... More

My spouse and I were on a quick trip to Colorado from Texas in October 2013 (but since I am late reviewing, TA will not let me choose a 2013 date) and one of our overnights was in Salida, Colorado, a town we have visited many a time but don't eat out there often. A restaurant called the Fritz was... More

Went for a beers and nibbles, so just ordered a couple of starters. Wow! the presentation and the flavours were exceptional. As good as I have seen in super-high-brow places. Real care had been put into the preparation of a couple of minor dishes. I went to the kitchen and personally thanks the guys in there. Five stars? maybe not,... More

Thanksgiving weekend we wanted a small bite and drink at several places so we could experience more than just a sit down dinner. The Fritz has a good but small selection of tap beers and more small plates than you could hope for. We opted for braised short ribs over potatoes with gorgonzola. It was delicious and a perfect small... More

We went to The Fritz just before the Salida Christmas Parade and there were a lot of people in town. We got seated at The Fritz and Corey immediately started to work our table. Super service from the beginning and it never changed. Start out with a beer - and they have many. The wife and I then decided to... More
