Crazy Jack’s Saloon is a place we frequent  mainly because of the cheap beer and tasty hot-wings. It’s about halfway between Loveland and Fort Collins in a less-than-flashy location, but is our kind of place. It’s always a mixed crowd but definitely not a college bar. It does appear they recently added a stage and removed one pool table for comedy nights and karaoke.

Atmosphere:  The décor inside has a 50’s diner feel to it, which is a little strange for a dive bar, but appear on the newer side. The lighting is perfectly dim even in the middle of the day.   There is a jukebox in the corner full of recognizable songs if you where born before 1990.  However, during our visit, there was some more modern tunes flowing from the speakers.  There is ample seating at the metal topped bar, high top tables and booths located along the outer walls. The entire place is clean , I mean very clean for a bar and this would include the bathrooms.

Service:  Good service , usually provided by the bartender.  The owner seems to always be around to lend a hand.  Not the biggest kitchen so if its crowded (it’s usually not) you may need to wait a couple extra minutes for your food.  But it’s served hot and promptly.

Drinks:  Your usual selection of local craft and domestic brews at a very affordable price .  They are a bit lacking in the import beer department.  A full bar, however no drink menu.  Seems to be your average beer and a shot kind of joint.  So if your looking for something with an umbrella, you’ll need to bring your own.

Food: The menu is a standard “bar menu” in the $5 to $8 range. Their big draw is the “Famous Jumbo Wings” with order sizes from 6 to 50 wings and a variety of flavors. They offer a flaming inferno wing challenge that will cost you an extra $.50, a few minutes of lip tingling, and some sweat on your brow.  However I think the challenge is only a personal one to test your intestinal fortitude. The wings are some of the best around, with the perfect combination of tenderness and crispiness .

Amenities:  Jukebox , Large covered patio in front, Party room, Pool table, free wifi, Many TV’s (no HD),

Parking:  There is ample parking in the lot surrounding the bar. Additional parking behind it as well.

The Buzz:  Karaoke on Friday’s, Comedy on select nights, 50 cent wings on Sunday’s, Blues and Rock bands on Thursdays, $2 coors lights before 7pm every day.
