Re: “Phat Hatties Smokehouse BBQ

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.

Re: “Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q

Great food and atmosphere. The meats are tender and true to expectations of Texas Smoked BBQ.

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Front Range is sadly underrated for their wonderful marriage of very very good food and quality music. No words can describe their delectable meals. And whoever books their bands really know what they're doing because we've seen some great acts come through here, most of them traveling from afar. Not sure why they advertise it as "southern rock" because musicians have come from Philly, Boston, etc., and have a wise variety of soulful sounds. If you want excellent food from a restaurant that has great taste in music, this is the place to be.

Best BBQ in town...the real deal

Re: “English Dockside

the best seafood in town is at Bonefish...the menu on this place's bad website isn't even tempting...and no lobster roll is listed.

Who wrote this review? Did they even go to the restaurant?

Re: “English Dockside

Always a tough choice to go here or not. By far the best seafood in the springs. However it will be an hour before you get your food, and the waitstaff will not check on you unless prompted. If Mr. English would hire a real staff instead of relying on family this place would take off.

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: “Colorado Smokehouse

The best BBQ in the springs! Great food, great prices, and a drive thru. If you haven't tried it yet you need to go.

Re: “Glad's Original Bar-B-Q

Glad's has the best bbq ribs,chicken, and pecan pie pie I've ever had. Their sides are also very tasty, especially the green beans and mac & cheese. Cornbread is tasty, but too crumbly. We try to go there at least once a month. The owner and his wife are very personable. Two things I'd like to see: discontinuing use of styrofoam plates and cups and plastic cutlery (due to their not degrading in landfills) I prefer eating from real dishes and glasses when I go to a restaurant. Also I'd be happy if they offered unsweet tea as well as their sweet tea. Despite these small glitches, we'll continue to come to Glad's!

Re: “Firehouse BBQ and Sports Bar

This used to be a good place. Did it change owners? Haven't been in a while and decided to stop about a month ago. Wow has it changed! The food isn't at all what it used to be. BBQ is dry and has a bitter taste to it. Thought maybe they just were having an off day. Stopped at the convenience store in Black Forest and didn't know that they had a location there. Not a good sign when you pull up and the guy running the store was outside smokin weed. The store is very dirty and they guy working seemed put out when I ordered. Needless to say it was worse than my last experience. I didn't even get sauce with the BBQ and again the strange bitter taste. Couldn't even finish our food. Won't be goin back unless the original owner comes back.

Re: “Firehouse BBQ and Sports Bar

I will never eat here again. The wait staff is NOT attentive at all, and never got offered refills the whole time. The food was okay, but nothing exciting, especially for the prices they charge. It used to be a better restaurant when it first opened. Don't waste your time or money. And they were out of several things on the menu. Yeah, great way to run your business. Never going back.

Re: “Culpepper's Cajun Kitchen

The Alligator Bites were inconsistent. They were different sizes (All were very small), some had more breading than others and some were chewy. They were greasy and had a very bland taste. I also got a bowl of the Chicken & Smoked Sausage Gumbo and was shocked that it contained 90% rice & only 10% Gumbo. It only had 5 small pieces of meat in it. Rice was not at all mentioned in the description on their menu (Online or in-store). I was shocked they charged me $5.99 for a bowl of rice! If you have to do this to your Customers than you need to close the restaurant. I felt the product was not worth the money at all and I was deceived. I will NEVER eat at Culpepper's again!!!

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Some of the worst BBQ I have ever had and I know my BBQ. The brisket tasted like it was broiled in an over, the ribs were fatty and I'm not sure what the sausage was made from. The side dishes consisted of baked bean ( tasted like they came from a can) and potato salad (absolutely no flavor what so ever. The only good things I have to say was the portions were large and the service was good.

Re: “Firehouse BBQ and Sports Bar

Great Bar-B-Que, Ribs, Brisket and Chicken. Prices are very good. My wife doesn't care for Bar-B-Que, so she has the cat fish and enjoys it. A little chilly if your upstairs with a group in the winter. But even then, the great food makes up for the tempature.

Re: “Bird Dog BBQ - Stetson Hills

PULLED PORK IS EXCELLENT. I'm not a fan of their sauces but I always get mine to go and make carolina style mustard sauce at home.
