Re: “The Airplane Restaurant

I wasn't keen on leaving a comment until I saw the negative ones which QUITE surprised me. Since I have tried so much on the menu I feel compelled to take a moment of my time to share my experiences. I find the food over all quite lovely and take coworkers all the time. Neither the drinks or the food are too pricey at all which makes it nice for lunch, dinner or just drinks after work. Not a lot on that area of town that I want to frequent so thank goodness for this restaurant/bar being here because there are many of us DoD contractors in the area... The wait staff is fine but just like any other place I have had the great and attentive serve us and the aloof bimbo paying all her attention to the military groups or single young men.... Nothing that would make me stay away though. The ambiance is priceless... always shocked it is not packed.... but again who wants to hang out after hours in this less than desirable area when you can go elsewhere in town? I will keep going back... and keep taking coworkers, friends and family. I KNOW it would be horrible to see it ever close... that is for sure.

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Very good pulled pork sandwich with Mom's Corn and Pea Salad (think 3 bean with lots of upgrades). They have a great selection of beers on tap as well bottled brewery beers. Service is always great and it's a good family atmosphere. Yup, there's lots of kids. They are people too & generally better behaved than any most impaired adults.

We saw "Swamp Cabbage perform all original music. They advertise themselves as Blues band but that was less than half of what they performed. Not the best band I have ever seen at Front Range, but decent musicians in the Southern Rock tradition. Their equipment was not sufficient to give them a full sound and it's a small area that you have to fill with sound. They were on their 10th show in 11 days and had to drive from Ogden Utah but hey...that's the job. Bring it or take a day off. They seemed to complete their sound check during the first set despite having set up an hour before they started. Unprofessional at the least.

For whatever reason, Front Range gets lots of touring bands, blue grass, folk & singer-songwriters. Many seem to play at the Telluride Blues and other festivals the week before or after. So you see acts for usually no cover that people just paid $60 to see.

Re: “The Airplane Restaurant

I've always had GREAT food there. I've been going there for years. My wife and I set in the Plane, but when we're in a group(10-15 people)we set in the Resturant.

Re: “Flatiron's American Bar and Grill

I find the two comments at the top that say this place was so so and poor to be extremely misleading. I have taken my family there several times and have never had a complaint. The food is always awesome and the prices are more than fair. I have never had a better wait staff wait on me someone made a comment on a server there named PJ he has primarely served us and is definately one of the best. I recomend Flatirons for a CC hockey game ($3 dollar drinks) before and after the game. We have to just show them our tickets. I Would send anyone there for a great meal and great service. Thank You Flatirons!

Re: “Flatiron's American Bar and Grill

Flatirons has became my friends and family favorite place to frequent. The sloppy joes, tacos, burgers and steaks are always perfect and the service comes with lots of smiles. I encourage everyone to go and sit out on the patio with the fireplace on a nice night and enjoy a glass of wine and chocolate cake. One word YUM!!!

Re: “Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Best burgers & Fries my family and I have ever had! First had them in Virginia! These FIVE Brothers now how to do it! Love the music too! Only drawback, there is always a line, they seem to move you through pretty quick though. Love it!
