Have you been to Smokin Fins yet? If not, what are you waiting for? We stopped in for lunch on my husband’s birthday (his choice) and we left more than satisfied. We will be back again. First of all, the space is a modern rustic chic décor. There is a wooden paneled wall above some booths that I thought added a little style and comfort (I am a huge fan of paneled walls though). Then above another area were wine bottles stored in racks along the wall. Super Cool décor. I am telling you Modern Rustic Chic. Awesome!
They had some local beers on draft and we were each able to find something we enjoyed. To start off food wise, we ordered The Diablo sushi roll. So delicious…but for me a fried sushi roll with spicy sauces, spicy tuna, salmon, and cream cheese is a slice of heaven. My only regret is that my husband and I had to share it. Next time I will have to get my own. Then for our main dishes we decided to order two items and split them. We ordered the Kalua Pig and the Lobster Mac n Cheese. Both extremely satisfying. The pig was tender and had been slow cooked in a delicious Dr. Pepper sauce. It’s funny because I always see recipes using Dr. Pepper or Root Beer for pork but never got around to trying it. Wow… what flavor. It came paired with delicious mashed potatoes and homemade beans. The plate provided A LOT of food. Even with the two of us splitting it we took leftovers home, along with some Lobster Mac n Cheese. Speaking of that Lobster Mac n Cheese, it actually had LOBSTER in it. Like big chunks of claw meat lobster. The sauce was creamy but not too rich, the lobster was plentiful, and the noodles were cooked to a great consistency. A true comfort food, but one worth the splurge.
We were also able to connect with the Manager while there and learn more about Smokin Fins and the small local chain it is a part of. I had no idea it was connected to Lucky Fins in Greeley. Well let me tell you…the location is great and once the construction for the ice skating rink is complete, their patio will be spot on for any time of year (unless it is actively snowing outside). If you have not been yet, GO! Next time I will have to bring more of an appetite so I can try some of the delicious sounding desserts. Until next time Smokin Fins! See you soon.
