Re: “Thunder & Buttons

"nightowl" is obviously pitching a band which is probably friends with "nightowl" and using this review forum to get them on MTV?! Nah! Nobody could be that lame.

Re: “Kasey's Bar & Grill

Just a bar at night, but during the day this is BBQ HEAVEN! I have lived all over (Thanks to the military... and I am from Texas where BBQ is a serious matter and not to be taken lightly so trust me when I rave.)

I have been to Kasey's DOZENS of times and every time I drag another geeky coworker with me in there they are forever thankful and in BBQ HEAVEN!

The 3-meat sampler is the best deal... just get that and plan on taking leftovers home. Oh! I saw an e-mail come out today at work saying that we are going to be having Kasey's come in to our office building so people can go and order a plate to take back to their offices.... WOOHOO! Hopefully this is a regular thing for us... AND I hope he has LOTS of food because we have 300 people between our two buildings of DoD contractors:) I love good food and don't care if the place is nothing fancy.

By the way, I have tried alllll the sides and never been disappointed in anything... EVER!

Re: “Maggie Mae's Restaurant & Pub

I stopped into Maggie's while my dad was having eye surgery. I come from a family of waitresses and this place was very much like the place my grandma and mom worked at for years. Although it would be considered dated by today's standards the hostess and waitresses were very nice. The food was really good and was served quickly. The prices sre very reasonsble for the amount of food you get. I would recomment this place to anyone!

Re: “Stadium Bar and Grill

This is the closest sports bar to my house; the wife and I enjoy going here for the occasional beer and lunch/dinner. The only other options around here are large chains; at least for the Cimarron Hills neighborhood. (Rock Bottom and Old Chicago come to mind.)

This is actually a cute sports bar and the food is decent. A 25oz Guinness set me back $6.99 which I felt was a tad bit pricey, but the pours were excellent and the beer fresh. The food prices were good; I had a decent-sized wrap and a cup of some very tasty chicken-tortilla soup for about $10.

So... obviously the profit margin here is made on alcohol, not food. ;) This is true for many restaurants, though.

A few stand-outs - the Buffalo-chicken wrap with fresh carrots and celery as well as the spicy burger (Dynamite burger, or something like that I believe) are very tasty.

The atmosphere is loud and kid friendly, so don't expect this to be a "quiet date night" kinda place. It's a place to bring the kids, have a beer, and watch some sports - with good food and decent if slightly expensive drinks.

Re: “Thunder & Buttons

Decided to stop and try the food here when we noticed the specials board while strolling through Old Colorado City - VERY glad we did! They had a lot more than just burgers and bar food. We had the Lettice Wraps as an appetizer and tried a couple of the daily specials - I had Chicken Marsala and the wife had the Sloppy Buffalo. Everything tasted great. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with very good service. Loved the vintage NFL helmets around the bar - will definitely be back for football season also!!

Re: “Gray's Coors Tavern

I love the sloppers! Definitely worth the drive from Colorado Springs. The staff makes you feel like a local. Fun, fun, fun.

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

Pay no attention to this 'real NAVAJO'. I'm part Native myself (I know this guy would not consider me real; Guess what? I don't care) and I am not offended by the name in any way. The Navajo Hogan ROCKS! Why don't you go pick on the KC Chiefs or Cleveland Indians or are you too wasted on Mad Dog 2020?

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

As a real NAVAJO, who has actually grew up on the Navajo Reservation, I take offense to this establishment's name and business practice. Many native tribes are still struggling with alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide and domestic violence. There is NOTHING Navajo about this place, nor does it compliment my tribe. It is not "honoring" Navajos, it's simply furthering the stereotype that Native Americans are goofy drunks. I will be doing everything I can to spread word about this business' practice and the exploitation therein. Please note.

Re: “The Cow Pub & Grill

Live music on Saturday? Not if there is a game on the TV. Band standing around waiting for the game to be over before they could start playing. I go OUT to see live music, I can watch the game at home. House sound system is cranking obnoxious techno-dance mix stuff while the band stands around waiting for the game to be over? Seriously? Never did get to see the band play. They were billed to start at 8. Doorman said 8:30. We left at 9:45 without hearing a note. What a disappointment.

Re: “Keg Lounge

Use to patronize The Keg regularly for lunch. Unfortunately the last couple times, the chicken in the Berry Salad was like a rubber chicken. Food has gone down hill over the last couple of years.

Re: “Keg Lounge

I've been frequenting the Keg for over 20 years and I have always had a enjoyable time and been treated in a friendly and courteous fashion. It is normally filled with local folks, relaxing and having a good time with friends. The food and beverages are GOOD and there is a nice variety to boot. The Keg is a classic Manitou neighborhood hangout!

Re: “Wyatt’s Pub & Grill

In the last week we have eaten here 4 times! Once was take out pizza and the rest was dine in. Everything i have had has been spot on and just flat out good food and plenty of it. The staff is very friendly and there is always someone checking on you to see if you need your drink refilled or anything else for that matter.

Re: “Wyatt’s Pub & Grill

Wyatts is a breath of fresh air for this neighborhood. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming plus the food is delicious. We have nothing but good things to say about Wyatts. Welcome to the neighborhood.

Re: “Keg Lounge

My dad (Scotty) owned the Keg for 20 years before Mud bought it and I must say the food now is 1000 times better now than it ever was... It is a neighborhood bar and they don't take kindly to being hasseled... Even if you're right, it don't matter...
there's plenty of other good neighbor bars all within walking distance of the Keg...
try one of them next time...
