El Monte Grill – Fort Collins, Colorado


El Monte Grill, hidden on the southwest corner of Prospect and College, is another one of my favorite go-to’s for a healthy meal outside my kitchen. 

El MonteThey claim to use real, sustainable, local food, and I believe that they hold true to their word.  Every item I have ordered there tastes clean, fresh and nourishing.

The entrees lack that greasiness that a lot of restaurant dishes present, and they have a plethora of gluten-free choices, as well as fresh veggies and locally sourced meats. 

Even their complimentary basket of tortillas is made of gluten-free corn masa.  Like any restaurant, you can’t be 100% sure that what they claim is true, but I do know that every time I eat at El Monte, I leave feeling pleasantly full and very satisfied. 

El Monte also offers an awesome selection of good-quality, high-end wines and spirits, with a bar staff that has the answer to any of your questions regarding the brands.
