Re: “Café Corto Coffee Gallery

What a much needed space for our city! Great home away from home cooked food with a friendly family feel...You will leave feeling fully fed from soles to soul! Cafe Con Leche is bold and sweet, perfectly balanced extremes of flavor, and the Arepas Con Pollo is so good you could eat them for dessert cold, breakfast hot, on the go, take it home...Just take it in slow, savoring each bite and each bit of love that it is seasoned with...

Re: “Luigi's Homemade Italian Food

Re: “Maggie Mae's Restaurant & Pub

I stopped into Maggie's while my dad was having eye surgery. I come from a family of waitresses and this place was very much like the place my grandma and mom worked at for years. Although it would be considered dated by today's standards the hostess and waitresses were very nice. The food was really good and was served quickly. The prices sre very reasonsble for the amount of food you get. I would recomment this place to anyone!

Re: “Omelets Etc.

I ate at Omelets Etc for the first time yesterday and it was exceptional. i love the family owned restaurant feel. The food and service were exceptional! My coffee would never get half empty before someone was filling it up. Great food too, the green chile was great. I think I found my new hometown cafe.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Trinity is a great place. They have high quality food and the cooks do it right. My favorite is the Griz! and if they've added the Buffalo Mac to the menu then you got to try it. The owner, whose root is in brewing, knows his craft and they make many great beers but he knows other guys brew great beer too. So he also offers the best beers from around the world for his customers to enjoy. I'm living in Germany for the next few years but look forward to returning home and sitting again at that funky counter.

Re: “Arharn Thai

I have not had a bad experience here yet and I've been here about a dozen times. Quick service, and very reasonable prices and large amounts of food. The crab rangoon is delicious, and I love their sweet and sour sauce. Noodle and curry dishes great, but i feel they spice down to what you ask. Last time I asked for thai hot and it didn't seem super crazy hot and spicy.

Re: “La Carreta Mexican Restaurant

Absolutely great mexican food!! Try Combo #5 with verde sauce to get a taste of everything. They also have the best dessert i've ever had, a cheesecake chimichanga with cinnamon and honey. The sopapillas are awesome as well. When ever friends come to town this is the restaurant we go to.

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: “Rocky Mountain Brewery

Rocky Mountain Brewery may not have the ambiance of the chain breweries but it has the most amazing staff (many of whom are volunteers who believe in the brewery and the owners expertise). I bought a Brew on Premise for my husband for Fathers Day and we had a wonderful time brewing beer, the experience has led us to brew at home for years now. The fact that the place was bustling the whole time we were there told us that these people know their beer, and we weren't wrong. I have NEVER had a beer I didn't enjoy from this place. Duane is a fun loving and genuine person who speaks only the truth about beer and that is refreshing. I am so glad I found this amazing place to talk and learn about beer. Thank you RMB for your dedication!

Re: “Glacier Homemade Ice Cream & Gelato

I LOVE this place! Good prices, Amazing gelato and incredible ice cream. You can sample any ice cream and they are quite knowledgable about what they serve. Plus, they have very kind employees.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

Trinity is unique, and Colorado Springs is lucky to have it. First off - go here for the beer. The food is good, yes, but the beer is really the entire reason to experience Trinity. (I think right now they have a Cucumber-Basil Saison on tap - if you aren't into anything more adventurous than a Bud Light, you probably aren't going to enjoy this brewery.)

For the people who rate Trinity poorly; I'm not sure what they expect out of a microbrewery. Trinity has been rated in the top 25 breweries in the world; again, for a community as small as the Springs is; we're lucky to have a place like this. I don't know anywhere else in the city where I can go get beers as wildly different as Trinity offers with appetizers ranging from thick, sliced bacon slices served with maple syrup to vegan fajitas (which are amazing; and I'm not vegan!) - anyway... five stars.

Re: “Springs Orleans

It is simply other worldly...and now with the connecting hotel, it is as easy going downtown to leave town. And at Colo Springs rates, not New York's!

Re: “Thunder & Buttons II

Decided to stop and try the food here when we noticed the specials board while strolling through Old Colorado City - VERY glad we did! They had a lot more than just burgers and bar food. We had the Lettice Wraps as an appetizer and tried a couple of the daily specials - I had Chicken Marsala and the wife had the Sloppy Buffalo. Everything tasted great. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with very good service. Loved the vintage NFL helmets around the bar - will definitely be back for football season also!!

Re: “Mirch Masala

Simply the best Indian food I've ever eaten. The tiki masala chicken is so incredible I've actually had dreams about it. The kheer pudding and the mango dessert are some of th bed flavors I've enjoyed. The format of the buffet is very pragmatic. Go at lunch, that's the best deal. Marvelous experience

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

I absolutely LOVE this place. The owners are very open, loving and caring. We hold our meditations upstairs and we rent the place to have a Metaphysical Meet and Greet. I bring my 3 year old autistic nephew and they are very accommodating for him. A wonderful atmosphere, a peaceful outside table, and great food and drinks.

Re: “Gray's Coors Tavern

I love the sloppers! Definitely worth the drive from Colorado Springs. The staff makes you feel like a local. Fun, fun, fun.
