If you don't like their regular crust - try the DeLite crust. They push it as lower cal and lower carb, but really it should just be called thin n' crispy crust - it's AWESOME! Only complaint is that the pepperoni is just right one time and super-spicy the next. Love the onions - they mix white, green and red onion together.
Simply the BEST pizza in Colorado Springs. But some time the pizza is lacking cheese ( 1 out of 3 times).
High quality, a good vibe, a comfortable and immaculately clean dining atmosphere. Their Malaysian Chicken is mouth watering!
I like it. People were being fun and loud, much better than average bar food, fun deco...laid back joint and I've been in a LOT of joints.
We've been to PJ's twice now, and both times we were not disappointed! This is the type of food I grew up eating and loving, cooked by my Hungarian grandma, only better! (sorry, Grandma) Their stuffed cabbage is rich and delicious, the pork cutlet melts in your mouth. I tried the smoked salmon potato pancakes last night and thought I was in heaven. Try the Euro fires with Hungarian goulash ladled over them! YUM! Also, the meatloaf with mushroom gravy and dumplings was absolutely wonderful. I can't wait for family to come visit so I can take them to PJ's!
Very good BBQ and I'm not even "into" BBQ. Good portions, interesting recipes for sides, fantastic pies. Four stars only because its location is an old house, which provides ambiance I guess, but also makes it a tad crowded and cramped. But really, the food is very good and service is good also.
This is one restaurant where the buffet is almost as good as ordering off the menu. Whether you have experience with Indian food or don't know if you like it, go for the buffet to try it out. They seem to always have a fully stocked salad bar, tandoori chicken, naan bread, paneer, samosas, and mix up the curries and other veggie dishes. There is also always rice pudding and malpuda (deep fried pancakes in syrup). Find what you love and go back at dinner!
Order a lassi (mango is great!) to end the meal with a sweet Indian smoothie. Friendly, attentive staff, too.
Best pizza by far that I've found outside New York. They lose a star for charging $10.50 for a pitcher of Bud light but their pizza rocks and they know how to cook it. They need to send someone over to the downtown location to teach them how to cook a pizza pie.
Love this old-timey ice cream place... drive up or walk up -- sit outside so your chocolate dipped cone drips on the sidewalk, not in your car. Try a thick butterscotch malt or shake... they way they were meant to be made. This place is fresh out of 1960 and just as good. Reasonable prices and no-nonsense staff. And, hey, summer 'tis the season!
Jake and Telly's has my vote for all around best patio. The fact that they have great, fresh food and awesome martinis is just gravy! Speaking of gravy, be sure to try their taziki, it rocks!
They just added a wonderful appetizer of purple rice and bean looked like a sushi roll but was instead a stack..... loved it. . . service was top notch. Asked for a wine selection and it was perfect. Really enjoyed the meal. Recommend it highly.
Il Vicino serves a wide variety of brick oven pizzas, calzones, panini, salads, soups, and pasta. However, there is such a wide variety of pizza, I haven’t tried anything else yet. Most are really yummy. My favorites are those that don’t have the traditional pizza sauce; garlic oil, pesto, balsamic marinara sauce, and spicy oil are all great. Every day they have a special pizza and you can select your own ingredients as well. I have chosen a couple of their pizzas that are a bit bland, but for the most part they are very good. On the table there is a bottle of spicy oil that, even though I am not a big fan of spicy food, I love to drizzle on all the pizzas I have tried.
This isn’t some cutesy Italian joint. The interior is modern and somewhat industrial. They also brew their own beer and I have heard very good things about it from friends who are hops heads. If you aren’t a fan of all the chain restaurants and want a friendly place with great brick oven pizza I defiantly suggest trying Il Vicino.
Summer's here -- it's time to go to Jake & Telly's! Ask for a table on their patio. Fresh, flavorful, healthful food. Attentive service, great location!
Great open space, attentive staff, GREEN biz and yummy, yummy menu. Try the hot chicken salad (hot wings style fried chicken breast on greens LOADED with bleu cheese) or the Ploughman's Lunch (a traditional Irish plate of cold meats, cheeses, olives, garlic, veggies, etc served with breads). Oh yeah, there are the fries with curry dip. Trust me, come hungry.
Being a native New Yorker, I am often back there to visit family. And when I do, I have to have two things - pizza (preferably a white slice) and White Castle. Borriello Bros. is the closest to NY pizza I have had in the Springs! Very convenient location with plenty of parking. 4 stars (not 5) due to the Yankees stuff everywhere – I’m a Mets fan!
Fun bar for Sunday football games and other weekend sports. Truly great brunch and lunch menu. A mix of traditional bar options plus hearty homestyle pot roast, bison and elk options -- plus yummy, unique salads. Really good bartender (Lindsey) and servers. Attentive, friendly and fast.
Corner Cafe is nothing short of delicious. The soups, the sandwiches (hot AND cold!) and the salads are all to die for. But the best part? The absolute REASON for going? The french fries. I'd venture to say they may be the best in town. And if you need the perfect sidekick to the fries, go for the bacon cheeseburger. It melts in your mouth.
Also, the service is impeccable and if not for the somewhat steep prices on some items (expect to pay $11+ for a sandwich, fries, and a drink) I'd rate Corner Cafe 5 Stars.
I love dropping by Garden of the Gods Gourmet for the samples they always have out and about. Their sandwiches are delicious and I've enjoyed many of their take-and-bake items as well. The only thing I wish they'd do is add natural/organic/grass-fed beef/poultry/etc. to their dishes. Any added cost would definitely be worth it.
Beer drinker? You'll be in heaven at Trinity. Don't drink beer? That's OK, try the Pear Cider. Their food has greatly improved since they first opened. Lots of veggie-friendly options, or for the meat eaters, a bacon basket! Make sure to check out their calendar online. They have lots of events, art shows, music and such going on each month.
Great casual environment with not-too-expensive food. Love the spinach-feta quesadillas and the turkey avocado sandwich. And the YUMMY carrot cake.
