To keep people interested in average Baja-Mex food, rather than improving the quality of the flavor, you need to add a little song and dance for entertainment. Well, that's the philosophy at Fuzzy's Taco Shop, anyway. Do people go to Chuck E. Cheese for the pizza? No, they go for the games and entertainment; the food is an afterthought. And while there's nothing bad about the food at Fuzzy's, it's just boring. It needs more than spice to make it pop - it needs bingo, trivia nights, karaoke, and margaritas filled with beer to make it worth while.
I had a chance to taste what Fuzzy's had to offer during the day. While the conversation was fun, and the atmosphere bright, the food was dull. I ordered chips and guacamole for an appetizer, and the guac was loaded with shredded iceberg lettuce. I just don't get it - it doesn't add anything other than annoying, stringy texture. It's completely fine without the added lettuce.
The fish tacos I ordered were decent. The fish was grilled but still flat on flavor, and I needed to douse each bite with the signature hot sauce at the table - which I thought was delicious because of the strong vinegar taste. Strangely, the tacos are topped with feta cheese, which I suppose adds a more complex flavor with each bite, and it's probably cheaper than Mexican cotija cheese. Some people like it, some people don't. Strange as it was, I thought it was OK.
I came back again with friends for a fun-filled night of bingo. Forget coming to Fuzzy's during the day at lunch - dinner with entertainment is the time to go. Most weeknights have some kind of exciting event going on to lure you in for tacos and margs. Tuesdays are trivia nights, Wednesdays are bingo, and Thursdays are karaoke.
The place is packed with CSU students (and rightly so), with large glasses of margaritas at almost every table. The college crowd is their target market, so keep in mind - the food and service are going to reflect that. When starving students are used to microwave dinners and Top Ramen, Fuzzy's is the food of kings. Service is provided with slow, lackluster attention, and sometimes with a texting cell phone in hand. We actually had to wait longer than appropriate for someone to take our drink order while they finished up their text message right in front of us.
I ordered the Pomerita - a frozen margarita with Fort Collins Brewery's Major Tom's Pomegranate Wheat beer turned upside down in the middle. Fuzzy's Taco Shop has a tagline - "Welcome To Your New Addiction." Well, yes - I can buy that if you love margaritas, because the ones here are crazy good. Sweet frozen drinks with delicious beer added for extra boozy love? Sure, why not!
Bingo was fun, and it kept us in our seats for four hours eating, laughing, and playing games when we'd otherwise be out the door after 45 minutes. At Fuzzy's Taco Shop, it's not about the service or the food - it's about the fun.
