I was going through some postcards here in the Archive and came across this gem from Mr. Steak, a restaurant located at 2712 South College Avenue in Fort Collins from around 1968 to 1988. My guess is this postcard dates from when they first opened in Fort Collins and started serving up, according to the back of the postcard, “perfectly aged USDA Choice corn-fed beef, char-broiled the way you like ‘em.”
I really wish I could have gone to Mr. Steak. Doesn’t it look cozy?
By the way, the Local History Archive has hundreds of historic Fort Collins postcards. Stop by sometime and take a look!
