Staff reported a somewhat slow weekend in the restaurant, but extraordinary traffic in their mercantile store. “We sold out of everything,” said a The Forks employee. “The restaurant is slow because we think people just don’t know about it reopening,” the employee said.

The Forks is located at 17685 North Hwy 287 in Livermore.

The Forks was originally built to accommodate loggers in the Winter of 1874 who were traveling between Fort Collins to Pingree Hill, then over the Divide to Steamboat Springs. The original building was burned in a fire, but it was rebuilt to resemble it.

The restaurant is a local favorite, well-known for its specialty fries and hamburgers as well as a wide variety of other menu items.
