I really want to like this place because everyone is so nice. But the food is just not that good. Quiche cold, no taste. Burger just acceptable.

I have been eating at Fat Alberta since it opened over 20 + years ago. My wife always ordered the Cajun Chicken Salad. I have had almost every item on the menu. Consistency, friendly staff, and value are this restaurant's trademark.

I love onion rings and this place came highly recommended. My mother had the monte crisco and loved it. However I thought the onion rings were to heavily breaded. The Ruben was just so so. I tried this place 3 times and the only thing worth going back for is the pie :)

Mom wanted salad for dinner & they seemed to have a variety. She enjoyed her chicken noodle soup & salad. I had salad & crab quiche. Good taste, but VERY dense for a quiche. I like my quiche on the fluffy side. They have a variety of sandwiches, I should have gone with that. Service was great. Overall, it was... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. Their Monte Cristo sandwich is phenomenal. During the warm months they have a patio open. I've been here several times and have never had to wait for a seat.

For many years this was our families favorite place to eat. Both the food and the service have really gone downhill. The sandwiches aren't the same and I can make better food at home with deli meats from the local store. Today was the last time for me. It was my wife's birthday and she requested this restaurant. I ordered... More

Everyone in Greeley knows this is where to go for pie! Not only do they make Great homemade pies but have a variety, some of which most people have never tried. The side benefit is their food is consistently good, well priced and they have a full bar. Very family friendly but reservations recommended during peak dinner hours.

It never hurts my review if you have liver on the menu and it is well prepared. They do and it was prepared well. This is certainly not a fancy place nor easy to find tucked away in the back of a building with décor stuck in another time. But the food is very good and the pie well worth... More
