We went here for dinner with my daughter's soccer team after a tournament. It gets busy but it's worth the wait! We sat outside in the far back patio area. I noticed it's dog friendly so that's good to know if we ever bring our dogs along! Our family ordered a large "Thai Me Up" pizza & it was SO... More

People in the Grand Valley flock to the Hot Tomato...great food, great selection and just plain good, local fun. This is a casual eatery for people of all ages.

The stop wasn't a planned one and I was in a bit of a hurry so rather than ordering a whole (custom) pizza I ordered a slice from one of two pizza's presently on the hot plate behind the counter. I chose the Granny's Pesto which was delicious! Lots of garlic, a bit of cheese and tomatoes with a mild... More

Very good selection of pizza and pizza toppings. Service was fantastic and quick. The beer selection was right on with multiple choices from local craft breweries. Not much more can be asked for (except maybe to be open on Sundays). We tried the specialty Thai Pizza. It was good but a little too much sauce for my liking.

Always have a great experience at the HT. Great variety of pizzas & calzones, great friendly staff, good beer selection. Eat at HT every time in Fruita for mtn biking, and always satisfied. Excellent salads too! Oh -- they are closed on Sun & Mon . . . booo!

Hot Tomato Pizzeria is consistently good. It's always busy though, so plan accordingly, but the food is great, frequent live music, and a great patio.

We drive from GJ, even though there are good pizza options there. Its worth the drive. Doesn't matter which pie you select - all we've tried have been great. Very nice antipasto salads too. Seating is frequently at a premium. Its catch-as-can, grab a table when one frees up.

We always make a stop when in town! I'm partial to the calzones but their pizza is awesome too! Love hanging out in the back patio with friends.

Everyone who has been to Fruita knows about the Hot Tomato. It's not the only restaurant in town, but it best represents Fruita. People here are nice and friendly. The food is made from the best and freshest ingredients. Although often crowded, the pizza is delivered with efficiency. And a smile. We arrived and were greeted by a long line.it... More

It was the 3rd time I've tried to eat there and we finally got in. This place is always busy for a reason. If you are passing by Fruita Co. and dont stop for a slice at Hot Tomato..... well you are missing out.
