My friends and I have enjoyed Coal Mine Dragon for years! We concregate to enjoy excellent food and the sweetest servers in Colorado Springs. Our group goes to the Uintah location at least once a month and are treated like rock stars! Their food is perfect, so if the competition is about service - their's is the standard that others should strive to achieve.
Excellent food, wonderful service! A very nice touch was they gave us a warm towel to wash your hands. Took my Aunt here for a very nice quiet lunch around 1:30pm on a Wednesday. We both found our meals to be superb. The servers were very attentive but not hovering. There were several other tables present when we arrived and several more came in as we finished. They were setting up for dinner, changing over to linen table cloths and napkins. In my opinion it would be a nice romantic dinner place. I would also like to mention when I requested chop sticks I was not given the wooden throw away kind, I was handed a nice, balanced pair of chop sticks. Wonderful experience.
My wife and I have tried many Chinese Restaurants in the Springs and this is by far the best. This a family run restaurant and the owners quickly make you feel part of the family. I have worked my way through almost every dish on the menu and have never been disappointed.
Changs' is my favorite restaurant on several levels: tasty, well prepared food; friendly, attentive service; casual, well maintained atmosphere; reasonable prices; killer martinis; and, accessibility, to name a few. I eat there most Saturday nights, sit at the bar, always feel welcome, and always get good food and professional service. Give them a try; I'm sure you will be pleased.
I have sampled many of the Chinese restaurants in COS and Shangri-La is exceptional. The ambience is elegant and the food is consistently SUPERB, and I challenge you to find a more attentive, friendly staff. You will NOT be disappointed!
Try the "Koreanized" Chinese food such as jjajangmyun (noodles in black bean sauce), or jjamppong (seafood soup with noodles). They are spectacular.
A little worn from the years...but it has been exactly like it is for 30 years...the food has never varied and is classic American tempered Chinese...and very inexpensive. It is the perfect match of expectation and result.
Very good and affordable. I've had the sweet/sour chicken, schezschuan, lemon chicken, orange chicken, all the soups, the lo mein, and most of the variety items on the menu. Never had a bad xperience. I highly recommend this place.
different , no food coloring in sauce is sign of sanity!
will go again.
kind of small, patio is nice if no kids screaming at ice cream place next door after dinner when yuppies give them sugar
I've been there several times -- and have always enjoyed the food and service. Evenings are always packed...doesn't matter which day of the week. It's definitely one of my top favorites. I understand why someone would consider it "flock mentality." But, it's good. That's it.
Something happened to this place. They had a menu change that dumped some good dishes - such as lemon scallops - and generally lost the items that had the freshest tastes. Add medium/high prices in comparison with other Chinese food places in town and you have a recipe for mediocrity.
I do like PF Changs, but this location has some of the worst service I have ever experienced. The food usually comes out hot, but the last two times it has been lukewarm. The waitress I had was inattentive to all of the tables around me. One time I walked up and refilled my iced tea and then refilled the table next to mine. The General Manager recently changed and I feel this is the main reason why the quality of the Colorado Springs location has gone down.
If you are accustomed to authentic, quality oriental cuisine, I'm afraid you will be disappointed in this commercialized chain restaurant. Located in the Shops at Briargate, the patrons flock to this establishment. Many enjoy it. Personally, I find it highly overrated and would suggest you resist the "flock" mentality and seek out a smaller, non-chain restaurant with better food and much better prices!
P.F. Chang's restaurant in Colorado Springs used to be great in service, atmosphere, and food but it's going downhill fast. It's has always been a bit pricey compared to other Chinese restaurants. The food is now WAY over salted/seasoned with smaller portions at a higher price too! The service is now sub-par at best and if need anything more than one drink refill or your check good-luck in getting service. And lastly, the atmosphere is now a trendy stuck-up upper-middle class snobs hang-out...too bad! And yes, if you're looking for an authentic Chinese meal then P.F. Chang's is NOT the place to go!
I've only been here once, and will never go back. Worst "chinese" food I have ever had. I would rather eat at Wok 2000 on Fillmore.
Ordered egg roll and ck egg foo young.
Both pretty lousy.
Egg Roll had five spice taste that was overpowering. Plus they don't have "duck sauce" They give a sweet and sour sauce and hoisin sauce for the egg roll.
The egg foo young was super bad. The egg is fried in one large piece cut up. The gravy is not just plain gravy. The chicken and weird veggies were in the gravy with the strange five spice flavoring. Egg Foo Young is filled with some veggies, such as onion, bean sprouts and Chinese cabbage.
This gravy had broccoli, Chinese baby corn, etc plus the chicken.
I was super disappointed!

I have sampled many of the oriental restaurants in COS and Shangri-La is exceptional. You honestly cannot find an establishment with more attentive staff. The ambience is elegant and the food is consistently superb. You will NOT be disappointed!
