At The Post, our motto is Hot Chicken Loves Cold Beer. Featured by Guy Fieri on Food Network's Diners Drive-Ins & Dives, our fried bird is better than the rest. Our kitchen, run by chef Brett Smith, serves family-style comfort food cooked with the love of your grandma and the skill of a trained chef. We start with humanely raised, all-natural chicken, brine it for hours, give it a dip in buttermilk, dredge it in seasoned gluten-free flour, and then pressure fry it to crisp, golden perfection. Our brewers craft incredibly drinkable, food-friendly beers meant to pair perfectly with your meal. Come for the chicken, come back for everything else. We are ready to welcome you for dine-in, patio dining, and takeout. Planning a party or event? Ask about our private dining spaces!

    Love to visit the post to enjoy gluten free fried chicken. First visit in Fort Collins. Ordered chicken and mash potatoes, both marked GF and the server told the kitchen I’m celiac. The gravy on the potatoes tasted different than other locations, more tangy. Unfortunately, I got very sick after the meal with symptoms of being glutened.

    The Post Chicken & Beer - Fort CollinsResponded on June 11, 2022Hi ADemi, Thank you so much for visiting us! I can confirm that all of our recipes are the same as the other locations and that all of our gravy's and bone-in fried chicken are 100% gluten free. We do cross-contact/ allergies very seriously. I do apologize that you were feeling unwell though, and will make sure we talk with our team. We hope you give us another shot. Best, Morgan

    Not overly impressive. Chicken was good and tasty, but they ran out of mashed potatoes. Offered a different side with a slight discount to our bill. But then they also didn't bring biscuits that were included with our meal. Strawberry Margarita was tiny for $10 and had no strawberry taste to it at all. Took my mom there for Mother’s Day and most likely won’t be returning

    So disappointed that they changed the chicken and waffles. Liked it so much better with tenders and the gravy. Will not be having it again unless they change it back or give customers the option of tenders or leg/thigh combo. Our server Colton is what made our experience so enjoyable. We had the best time because of him. You have a great employee in him!

    The Post Chicken & Beer - Fort CollinsResponded on April 9, 2022Hi Allison! I am so glad you enjoyed your server Colton. We did change our chicken and waffles but you can still get a version of the 'old chicken and waffles'. I apologize you were disappointed with the switch over though. When we do our seasonal menu change it is never in hopes to upset our amazing/ loyal customers

    The food was amazing. We ordered blueberry cheesecake and thought it was traditional, but turned out to be a cheesecake trail mix combo. Not what we expected, but still good. I think having pictures of the food and deserts would be helpful.

    The food was great, and the service too, BUT there were no mashed potatoes or chicken thigh strips. You gotta have mashed potatoes and gravy with fried chicken. I understand the problems with suppliers right now, but get a bag of potatoes from Sam’s club and start peeling until the supply problem is fixed. I would have easily given 5 stars for everything if it weren’t for the potato issue, and we had a member of our party that was disappointed about the thigh fries. We love the Post, and will continue to come eat the best fried chicken in town!

    The Post Chicken & Beer - Fort CollinsResponded on March 30, 2022Hi! Thank you for your honest review. We did happen to receive our truck at about 6/6;30pm that day instead of the normal noon drop off. But I completely understand the frustration of craving some mashers and us not being able to deliver. I appreciate that you will not hold this situation against us in the future and we can't wait to see you back in! Best, Morgan General Manager

    We had a nice weekday dinner at Post. Our server was very attentive & friendly. The chicken dishes and sides we had were tasty. Very good fried chicken, not too greasy, and tender and juicy inside. The individual-size side dishes are a little pricey. Sides are only included with a few menu items, like the two sandwiches. We might do one of the family-style meals next time - that seems more economical. The house IPA was pretty classic and drinkable with the food. Might be nice if happy hour went until 6 pm on weekdays??

    The Post Chicken & Beer - Fort CollinsResponded on March 3, 2022Hi Karin, We appreciate your awesome review! We have some other fun promotional things coming our way, but i will keep your happy hour idea in mind. We hope to see you soon! Best, Morgan General Manager

    Really nice job. I’ve been going to the Post in Lafayette for years, really glad they opened another location in Fort Collins. This was my first time coming to this location, glad to see that the quality and good service was the same as I remembered from the other location. Food was great, served fast and tasted great. Great place for a casual lunch or a date- staff is friendly and welcoming. No complaints. Love this place!

    The chicken was very good. The sides were barely warm. We spoke to the waitress and they removed the sides from our check. We were not looking for anything to be comped but did appreciate it. We just wanted the management to know the side dishes were not hot.

    $9 for mashed potatoes? And $16 for 4 pieces of chicken? Our chicken was barely warm and seems to have been overcooked and waiting for a patron. I was really disappointed; the chicken didn't taste bad but it was not hot and right out of the fryer. Prices are very high for quality. We had a nice server--Duncan? When we arrived we were taken to a tiny table for two; my friend wanted a bigger table, and the hostess told us they were all reserved. My reservation was for 5:00; we left about 5:40 and NO ONE had come to occupy any of those "reserved" tables. I may try again, but this first time I was quite disappointed overall.

    The Post Chicken & Beer - Fort CollinsResponded on December 18, 2021Hi Karen, I will pass the praise along to your server. As well as, will chat with our chef about the chicken situation, I'm sorry it was not up par. And chat with our hosts about making sure guests are comfortable. We do hope you visit us again.

    There are several dishes we just love and come back for every time we visit! The fried chicken is a MUST! From the crispy outside to the most juicy and tender inside. If you are up for a little heat, the Nashville hot has great flavor and won’t leave you disappointed. One of our favorite appetizers is the deviled eggs or chicken chicharrones.
