Fort Collins Community Connections: Austin’s American Grill – Downtown
Austin’s American Grill is the place to go if you want to experience what the taste of Colorado is all about. This local Fort Collins favorite is the “go to” for many when looking for a five-star, superior meal at a reasonable price. Part of the Hot Corner Concepts family, Austin’s has two locations in Fort Collins, one on Harmony Rd. and the one we got to know more about in this week’s community connections, Austin’s American Grill – Downtown. After talking with Mitch Bohls, General Manger of Austin’s – Downtown, we will definitely be back again and again.
What makes Austin’s American Grill unique?
Austin’s is unique to other restaurants because of the passion we have for our jobs. It starts with our owner and goes down the line to management and then to our staff.

Tell us about yourself…
I started working in the food industry while still in middle school. Starting at a concession stand and then onto a frozen yogurt place. I then went into serving and bartending while studying to be a high school teacher. I also helped a friend run a bagel shop and then went back to serving and bartending. Finally, I decided to become more responsible and went into management here with Hot Corner Concepts.
