Entertainment Best Art Gallery

Kress Cinema & Lounge

Best Balloons/Balloon Artists Balloon Art by Merry Makers

Kress Cinema & Lounge is not just the winner for best art gallery, but it is also the only independent movie theater in Greeley. The Kress is the cultural hub of town, and there is a little something for everyone there. In the heart of downtown, Kress is the perfect spot for someone that wants a drink while watching independent films — or someone that wants to look cultured on a date.

Is there anything more frustrating than asking a balloon artist for a giraffe and getting back a craft-less, artistically uninspired snake? Balloon art takes talent and imagination, and Balloon Art by Merry Makers has that and much more. This 2016 Best of Greeley winner combines humor, skill and always goes the extra mile to provide one of the best balloon art acts in northern Colorado.

Bike Peddler Cycling and Fitness has provided exceptional customer service and bike products to Greeley for 40 years. Owner Andy Greenberg is formerly a Trek Territory Manager and bought the business from longtime owners Nancy and Bill in 2001. This shop offers new and used bikes, and trained staff look to match buyers with the perfect ride for their own, individual needs. With a full-service repair shop and great prices, Bike Peddler Cycling and Fitness is the one-stop shop for all biking needs.

The Conservatory Dance Studio has an impressive reputation — former students have gone on to dance for Disney, Nike and the Denver Bronco cheerleaders. It is no surprise that a studio with such a pedigree also advertises a positive and encouraging environment that prioritizes developing healthy and accomplished dancers over anything else. Owner Linda McSwain has run the studio since 1993.

Food & Beverages Best Place for a Beer WeldWerks Brewing Company

Best Place for a Burrito

Alberto’s

In Colorado, beer is important, and a good brewery can define a community — for Greeley, this is WeldWerks. Their friendly servers, inventive drafts and award winning recipes keep locals and out-of-towners coming back. Yet, unlike breweries in neighboring towns, it is impossible to recommend just one beer to newcomers. Whether it’s the Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal winning Hefeweizen, or the crisp Juicy Bits IPA, there are potential favorites throughout the menu. A bit of advice: bring a driver, because you will want to try it all.

There is a lot of good Mexican food in Greeley, but it cannot be argued that Alberto’s has the best burrito. Home of “The Hottest Green Chili in Greeley,” the delicious burritos speak for themselves, and keep customers coming back. This local spot has made a name for itself for its friendly wait staff and specialty recipes, which makes for one of the best places to eat in Greeley. These authentic Mexican burritos are a reminder why local restaurants are worthwhile.

Best Place for a Glass of Wine

The Tavern at St. Michael’s

Some combinations just make sense: peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, cake and ice cream. However, it takes a special kind of creativity to do what Red’s Dogs and Donuts, and engineer a pairing the world never knew it needed — hot dogs and donuts. “Dogs and Donuts are the favorite foods of Founder Red. ... Red grew up in Brooklyn and spent many summers at Coney Island eating hot dogs and donuts. Red eats as many hot dogs and donuts as Mrs. Red will let him.”

The Tavern at St. Michael’s has offered a wide selection of Colorado’s finest wines since they opened in 2010. Head Chef Chad was born and raised in Greeley, and has worked in kitchens for over 25 years. The ever-evolving wine list is guaranteed to have something you like, or something new to try, and the friendly wait staff is there to help you pick the perfect pairing. Plus, glasses and bottles are half off on Wednesdays, so you have nothing to lose when trying something new. “We try to feature wine that is not only enjoyable, but affordable. We keep everything in a friendly price range so people aren’t afraid to try something new.”

The level of creativity at Stuft is unparalleled, and the unique burger options sets this burger joint apart from the competition. Whether you order off the menu, or craft your own burger, this spot is the perfect option for all the picky eaters, and aspiring culinary innovators of the world.

“Our hot dogs are 100 percent beef and large. We have all different varieties as far as Chicago dog and our swanky Frankie wrapped in bacon and topped with cheese. We also offer wild game brats including elk, wild boar, alligator, pheasant and buffalo. We appreciate our customers and those who voted for us and want to thank them for their support.”

Best Place for a Pizza

Roma

They say variety is the spice of life, and that is exactly why Rio Grande is the best spot for margaritas in Greeley. The Classic Rio Margarita comes in mango, strawberry or a mix of the two, and comes on the rocks or frozen. These tequila treats are a prerequisite for any night downtown.

When at Roma you’re guaranteed two things: a great slice and a run in with a friend. It seems the whole town turns up at Roma on the weekends, which is a testament to their food and sense of community. Roma is perfect for those looking for delicious pizza with fresh ingredients, a variety of toppings and homemade sauces. For those with strong stomachs, it is practically a dinner prerequisite to order one of Roma’s signature 32 oz. “Bazooka” drink from the bar. There is a little something for everyone here — thanks to a fun environment and amazing pizza, Roma is one of the crown jewels of Greeley dining.

You don’t have to have the munchies to love Cheba Hut. The relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant and friendly staff are bonus to the amazing, varied subs. The menu features over 30 signature subs, which can be paired with sides, or what the menu calls “munchies.” This restaurant stands for more than just marijuana culture — it represents subversion and innovation. This spirit is alive in every iteration of the “nug,” “pinner” and “blunt” sized sandwiches. 1645 8th Ave, Greeley • 970-673-8733 www.chebahut.com

There is even an all you can eat lunch buffet during the week. This family owned business has been serving award-winning BBQ to northern Colorado for 25 years.

We hate to expose an underground operation like the 1908 Speakeasy, but the drinks are too good to remain under wraps. Although “Greeley’s Best Kept Secret” is not an official Greeley’s Best category, this vintage bar is being recognized for their creative cocktails — like the “Secret Knock” or “Civil Disobedience.” 1908 Speakeasy is an homage to prohibition, but also a time when Greeley was a dry counter until 1969. This local time machine will transport patrons to a time of illicit indulgence and disguised drinking.

Best Place for Happy Hour

The Tavern at St. Michael’s

It’s not just The Country’s Best Yogurt, but it’s also Greeley’s Best. TCBY is the perfect indulgence because there are healthy dessert options — you can have your yogurt and eat it too. TCBY SuperFro is specialized yogurt that is low in fat, a good source of calcium and vitamin D and low in calories. But, then again, maybe it’s your cheat day. In which case, there are delicious soft serve options with more toppings than you will know what to do with. Besides, if your toppings include fruit then it’s healthy anyway, right?

“I was born and raised in Greeley, so we are really Colorado proud. We want to offer a fun, laidback atmosphere and affordable drinks to all of our customers. Our selection is very unique because we try to feature as much Colorado stuff as possible, and for a fair price. For example, on Wednesdays we do half off bottles and glasses of wine, so people are not afraid to try something new.”

Dr. Waterman has come a long way since then, and this is the 10th year in a row he is being recognized in this category. “We have such a wonderful dental community here, so I am honored and humbled to be recognized.

Best Brewery WeldWerks Brewing Company

Best Coffee Shop

The Human Bean

In Colorado, beer is important, and a good brewery can define a community — for Greeley, this is WeldWerks. Their friendly servers, inventive drafts and award winning recipes keep locals and out-of-towners coming back. Yet, unlike breweries in neighboring towns, it is impossible to recommend just one beer to newcomers. Whether it’s the Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal winning Hefeweizen, or the crisp Juicy Bits IPA, there are potential favorites throughout the menu. A bit of advice: bring a driver, because you will want to try it all.

The Human Bean is the best choice for anyone that wants high quality coffee/espresso, loves sweet drinks or doesn’t want to get out of the car in the morning. This coffee franchise excels at accommodation, and has a reputation for friendly baristas and top-notch ingredients — plus the chocolate beans that come complimentary with each drink. Don’t forget about the chocolate beans.

If there was an award for best name, The Slawpy Barn would win. For now, The Slawpy Barn is being recognized as Greeley’s Best Food Truck for its down-home cooking and all-American menu. The Slawpy Barn started when owners Kent and Dee Welp were downsized at their jobs. They decided it was time to change careers, and they have been serving Northern Colorado ever since.

Pellegrini is a little slice of Italy in our backyard. Owner Carlo Pellegrini brings authentic recipes from his home of southern Italy. Drawing off family recipes, the handcrafted, personal touch sets Pellegrini apart from other Italian in town. “Our entire staff is dedicated to serving your family, business associates, or special date with an honest and casual meal you will remember.”

Authentic recipes made from fresh ingredients make a difference you can taste. “At El Cielo we do more than your typical Mexican restaurant.

The atmosphere of The Greeley Chophouse pairs 1930s style and fine dining, which makes for an elegant dining experience. This is the perfect downtown destination for a classy night. “No matter the occasion, a night out at the Chophouse is a trip back to the class, romance, and exquisite tastes of the 1930’s.”
