The Friar’s Fork was founded by husband and wife team, Denise Vigil & Nealson Vialpando.  Denise has 30 years of experience in the hospitality/restaurant industry and paired with Nealson's ability to build about anything, this dream at last is a reality.  The Friar's Fork & Sanctuary was created in the footprint of the former historic St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Alamosa and is the ideal buiding & location!  The Friar's Fork serves Italian/Mediterranean Cuisine with the Sanctuary being an upscale cocktail lounge & coffee house.  It's a place where people from all over the San Luis Valley can meet to enjoy our tasty dishes and comfortable atmosphere. The Friar's Fork mission is to be a blessing to it's employees and the guests we serve.
