Re: “Joey's Pizza

Great NY style pizza from the crust to the toppings, all are a step above the other NY Pizza joints such as Leon Gessi or B. brothers. When they get busy, orders can take longer than normal but it's well worth the wait. If something is not right with your order, Joey is quick to make it right. It is my favorite pizza shop. The calzones, wings, subs and garlic knots are excellent as well. I definitely recommend them.

Re: “Buttercup's Frozen Yogurt

Wonderful! I've been to pretty much every yogurt place in the springs. This one really stands out. Not only is the yogurt wonderful, but the place itself is beautiful. It is very unique which was a complete surprise. It is designed sleek and modern, has wifi, beautiful brushed metal tables, a sitting area with flatscreen, leather couches and is really a nice place to relax. At the same time its incredibly friendly and inviting, and I was surprised to find the prices were the same as all the other places. It also is impeccably clean, has a great fruit bar, and the owners are incredibly friendly. Truly standout all around.

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

Pay no attention to this 'real NAVAJO'. I'm part Native myself (I know this guy would not consider me real; Guess what? I don't care) and I am not offended by the name in any way. The Navajo Hogan ROCKS! Why don't you go pick on the KC Chiefs or Cleveland Indians or are you too wasted on Mad Dog 2020?

Re: “The Famous

ZANE'S STEAKHOUSE SUCKED- ZANE'S GAVE ME FOOD POISONING (I have the credit card receipt and the Emergency Room documents) AND IS NOW CLOSED. I GUESS THAT SAYS IT ALL. THE FAMOUS HAS EXCELLENT FOOD, ATMOSPHERE AND WAIT STAFF. I think "SmartestMonkey" needs to rethink his/her name because you are truly an effing moron. The meal was "expensive" at Zane's because of the ER co-pay, Einstein.

Re: “Roman Villa

Always good food at a good price every time we go there. It's small, get there right at 5PM when they open to get a seat. Their house wine is sold by the full Liter, in a carafe, not the overpriced 750ML bottles found in other eateries.

Re: “Edelweiss

Canned food? Maybe this negative review came from someone too high to know that they were actually in some other restaurant in the downtown area. My family and I have been going here for over twenty years and we have never, let me say that again, NEVER, had a bad meal. The Rammschnitzel is some of the best I've had anywhere in the world... That includes Germany where I lived for a few years. Edelweiss is a gem that is not matched in the southwest. My suggestion to the individual that didn't like his meal would be to tell the staff...they will bring you anything you want to make you happy. One time I didn't like a beer I had, they brought me 5 other samples to choose from. NO charge. The thousands of votes racked up over the years for this masterpiece should drown out a complaint from someone who is probably a competitor.

Re: “Edelweiss

If you don't like this restaurant, then that is your problem. The food is great, the German beer is awesome, and the staff is very nice and helpful. And too pricey? I suppose for some people a fifteen dollar main course for dinner and a five doller pint of imported beer is a lot of money, but I found the prices to be very reasonable.

Re: “Spice Island Grill

Love love love it!!!. The food is GREAT!! and the customer service even better!!
If you want authentic jamaican cusine, this is the place to be....and if you are in a hurry then maybe you should try Mickey D's, .. because there at the Island Grill they take their time to ensure that the food is prepared fresh and hot. Believe me its NOT poored from cans..and packages onto your plate then heated in a microwave. This food is hand cleaned, prepped, chopped, diced, sitrred and stewed... baby, just the way it should be!! And the people, Owners, chefs, servers they all are kind freindly and sincere about pleasing their patrons. If they are open 6 days a week im there at least 3-4 of those days. Keep up the good work guys..please don't change.
Much love and support from Spencers Hair Rescue & Styles

Re: “The Rabbit Hole

What an incredible setting, it's a subterranean escape from the everyday life of Colorado Springs. I walked around to see the entire layout of the Restaurant and it seemed like I was exploring hidden caves, even a library with a variety of books. There is really cool art displayed and I actually know one of the local Artists. The staff is welcoming and personable, they made me feel like a friend not just a guest. Micro brews on tap (my favorites) and just $2.50 at Happy Hour. The food is absolutely mouth watering, I've had the Juicy Lucy burger, Ribs, Carrot soup, and the German Chocolate Cake. It's nice to have a new place that is unique and not typical of the others.

Re: “Margo's Vienna Station

I've been coming here off and on since the 90's and the food is always awesome here. The flavor's, the perfect buns, and the fresh ingredients keep me coming back. Sure, you may have to wait about 10 to 20 minutes on some days, but it is indeed worth it. You can sit outside while you eat and enjoy an awesome view of the mountains!

Re: “Sahara Café

Would recommend the Sahara to anyone who enjoys Middle Eastern food. The owner works both in the kitchen and on the floor. Very pleasant atmosphere and clean.

Re: “Seoul Tofu Grill

I stopped in to try out this new korean restaurant as im always looking for good korean. I came in skeptical as I've been disappointing with the restaurants around town, but I was very pleasantly surprised!! The meat was marinated perfectly, side dishes were amazing, and the kim chee was to die for! I have found a new place to eat every friday night!
