Re: “Ritz Grill

There's a bartender named Laken, she's pretty awesome and liberal w the drinks. But also a tease in a good way

Re: “Coquette's Bistro and Bakery

Went to the new location on North Tejon for a Saturday evening dinner. The food was tasty and the servers were well-informed and attentive.

Lots of real flavors, interesting combinations, and suitable portion sizes for the price ($9-$23). Our group liberally shared a representative set of dishes, thus I was able to find several things that I would partake of on my next visit. I chose the pan seared duck, which was perfectly cooked and well paired with the sweet potato/parsnip puree. The desserts were also rich and delicious.

My only complaints concern breaking in the new location. The dim interior made the miniscule text on the 1-page menu VERY difficult to read, and you'll have to raise your voice to have a conversation in the somewhat noisy dining area. Nevertheless, this is a place worth re-visiting.

Re: “Fifty Fifty Coffee House

Cool little hangout! Great coffee and staff. Very friendly. Cool Friday running "club". Reduced priced coffee after a run...not too shabby!

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

Very BAD service. Pre paid for the food deal (one slice,knots and drink). Waited about 30 minutes, then checked up with what was taking so long and they said just a few more minutes. 20 minutes later they said my order didn't exist. Asked for refund and they gave me a hard time. I left and counted my change the lady short changed me, so I went back in and she said that I had to pay for the drink cup! I asked to speak with the manager and he was very rude yelling at me in front of the customers! NEVER coming here again.
Side Note: Other people orders were also "Non existent". Very Disappointing.

Been here once before and had luke warm re heated pizza, not good.

Re: “Il Vicino

Fresh, clean, efficient, and cheerful. Reasonably cold beer, healthy salads, and pizzas that deliver taste by delicacy rather than heaps of stuff that will give you a stomach attack.

Re: “Il Vicino

Went to the location in University Village. Very good lasagna, however the wood oven pizza was only average, as the toppings just did not have enough flavor and the crust wasn't quite right. $28 for a two person lunch is also on the high side.

Re: “Stir

Cool, hip coffee shop that's a wonderful alternative to you know who.

Coffee is great. My pecan pie was right out of the oven, warm, sweet and gooey.

Order at counter, take your selection to a table. Outside seating too. Not pricey.

Yard sale coffee cups and flatware, funky old metal lawn chairs from the 1940s, in a renovated gas station ... recycling and re-purposing at its best.

Girl at the counter was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Free Wi-Fi and parking.

In the Old North End Neighborhood (ONEN), in the BON Shopping Center, at corner of Jackson and Wahsatch, a few blocks from Penrose Hospital just off N. Nevada Ave.

Closes at 3PM most days. I'll be going back.

Re: “Billy's Old World Pizza

I just moved here from the Midwest and I have to say maybe it does not rate with the high end pizza places like Giordanos or Lou Malnatis but for the value, the stuffed pizza is very, very good. I could not stop eating this so I ate even when I was full! Another sign of this pizza being excellent? when I had it for leftovers the next few days and warmed in my oven (do not use microwave!!) it even tasted better! I am so glad I found this place! Now I need to test the Roast beefs (i love the hot giardenaires they offer).
Art the pizza snob from Chgoland.

Re: “P.B. & Jellies New York Deli

If you get to Chapel Hills Mall in Colorado Springs, and you find yourself in need of sustenance, you might try PB & Jellies in the food court. The ambience is... Well it's the mall. But the food is terrific. I had a Reuben sandwich and I've got to say, it was the best Reuben sandwich I've ever had.

Re: “The Famous

Looking for grass-fed and finished beef, preferably. Also attractive is locally produced meats, not feedlot animals, hormone and antibiotic free.

Lalahartma What kind of cattle do you find attractive these days? Or is this just another trendy thing?

Re: “Cafe 225 Coffee Shop and Venue

new, clean, and warm inside. I ordered a vanilla latte which was steamed by the barista, not a machine, which I prefer. They have a conference room for rent which I plan to use for casual meetings with new clients. I would recommend this cafe to friends.

Re: “The Famous

They really need to update their menu. Grain-fed beef is not very attractive these days.

Re: “Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q

Long waits. Pick up your beer as you go in and it will be warm by the time you get your food. Except for the brisket or pork sandwiches, everything is very salty. The meats, when good are great, but not always consistent. The sauces are rather tasteless...bring your own hot sauce to add some kick.
