Love The Fritz

We stop by The Fritz once or twice a year when we drive between Durango and Denver. Consistently great and definitely the best food in Salida. Give The Fritz a try. Excellent!

Delicious small plates and tasty wine. When you want a casual meal in a beautiful setting near the river, this is the place to go. Food is creative, delicious and expertly prepared. Just the right size.

So nice to find an excellent restaurant for lunch when on a long road trip. This restaurant we thought better than many in Aspen. We all enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere. All was fresh, original and delicious.

Second time we've been here, and it was better than we remembered. Their small plates (tapas) is just the way we like to enjoy a meal out. Everything we tried was outstanding. Great little place in a great little town. We'll be back.

My wife and I decided to stop at the Fritz since we were intrigued by the TripAdvisor reviews and its high rating. We were not disappointed. The interior looks like your classic bar but the kitchen has elevated the food to an higher degree. We picked two small plates from the standard menu. The truffle fries were excellent and there...

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.

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.
