Downtown Erie, Colorado includes an excellent restaurant for date nights and special celebrations. The owners of 24 Carrots take pride in providing quality food, personalized service, a full bar and beautiful facility to create a dining experience which begins at the front door and carries flawlessly throughout the meal.
My wife and I enjoyed our weekly date night in every way. We chose the calamari appetizer and found it fresh, cooked perfectly, and some of the best tasting we have ever had. The portion was generous enough for two and set the perfect tone for a special night out.
My wife ordered the beef tenderloin of beef over sweet potato rissoto and I ordered bed brisket over garlic mashed potatoes with roasted Brussels sprouts.
We shared a nice bottle of Argentinean Malbec from their excellent wine list and to satisfy the dessert craving we shared a beautiful blueberry and lemon crem brulee.
Our server took excellent care of us checking on our comfort, our beverages and our satisfaction with each course. One of the new owners came by and welcomed us sharing a bit about the chef and menu. Without hovering the staff met our needs and made sure we had no questions or issues.
Erie is about a 30 minute drive from our home. Located four miles west of I25 it would be easy to miss but we found this restaurant an excellent choice and we'll worth seeking out.

This is a convenient meeting place in between Lafayette and Erie or Longmont. Great place to hang out, read the paper, meet, work, or just grab a Hot Tea or Coffee, and a snack. Nice outside seating area on south side of restaurant.

Operating from 500 Briggs St. at the old mercantile building in Historic Downtown Erie, Colorado, we feature in-house hard cider alongside the best beer in the world both on 15 taps and in bottles from our beer cellar. We also feature in-house Artisan Pizza and 12 hr. smoked Jurassic Pork (both in Gluten-free options). As loyal Erie residents and beer lovers, our vision is simple: connect the local community and connect the beer community. We wanted to create a welcoming atmosphere for you and your friends to sit and enjoy beer, cider and collaborations with the best breweries in the world.
We go to The Old Mine normally on a Thursday in the summer when the farmers market is downtown. If you want something good, close and comfortable. I drink the beer and she drinks the cider. Great date nights. However, it can be loud and lots of kids and a bit expensive.

Our latest addition to the Echo Brewing family is our brick-oven fired pizzeria and brewpub in downtown Erie, Colorado. Serving Neapolitan-style pizza, salads, sandwiches and appetizers. Come enjoy an artisan pizza and wash it down with a fine Echo craft ale or lager. Also enjoy our outdoor patio and fire pit!
We dined at Echo last night while visiting family in Erie, since it's one of their favorite restaurants. We tried a variety of pizzas including the Capra, Margherita, and Salciccia and a gluten free make your own. The kids had kids sized fettucine which they liked. The service is quick and friendly. The pizzas are quite good.
We enjoyed eating family style at their picnic table, with doors open to the beautiful outdoors.
I hope we get to enjoy another Echo wood fired pizza on our next trip to Erie!

This restaurant has been open since the town of Erie has had dirt roads and it supports the local flare by paying tribute to the town sports teams. In a town that's growing rapidly and popping up with trendy breweries, new homes, and new restaurants, this place holds true to its small town values and offers great food and beer at great prices. You can get a large juicy burger with homemade fries for 7.99! Heck, McDonald's almost charges that much these days. Anyway it was a good experience for me and my kids pregame and hence they get a 4/5 review! You aren't getting luxury but you aren't getting false advertising either. Kind of refreshing.

This is a family friendly place that was very busy the Saturday afternoon we were there after our grandson's football game. About half of his team came for lunch & we sat outside on the patio because it was a beautiful day. Our grandson had wings which he enjoyed with lemonade and my husband and I shared a steak salad which was very good and definitely large enough to share. My glass of house wine was also good.

We decided to try them out, ordered a classic pineapple and Canadian pizza. The crust was excellent and I ate it for lunch a few times and it reheated beautifully, not spongy or stiff. We got a large and it was enough for three meals for me and two for hubby. Great deal. They sit across from the award winning Epic brewery.

Authentic Argentinean empanadas, home made taste, imported pastry. We offer hot or a take and bake option. Wholesale also available
Stopped here today for a quick bite to eat. Had a chicken empanada and beef empanada.
Food was actually quite tasty. Place is super tiny inside (4 seats). Food was fast and very good. Would certainly consider take from here. Staff who served us was very friendly and nice.
Empanadas are pretty small (maybe the size of a basic taco) so be prepared to order a couple.

Azteca is one of our favorite restaurants. I love "tres amigos", a dish with steak, an enchilada, and a so very tasty Chile relleno. Alicia, on of their wait staff, always takes time to speak in Spanish to my special needs adult daughter, who loves this interaction. It challenges her to use her language skills. Jorge, is another fun wait staff member who once made me a one million dollar check, all in fun, because I had, much to my horror, knocked over a glass and broken it. The "bill" is something to show off and keep forever. Happy hour has some good deals for drinks. We will keep coming to Azteca.
