Re: “Springs Orleans

Been there several times now, never had a bad meal. Love the decor. The Kobe Sliders (2 per order) with a mound of wonderful french fries are amazing and a meal for smaller appetites. Our service has always been excellent too. Nice that it's only 2 doors from Kimballs movie house, a great date night experience.

Re: “P.F. Chang's

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.

Re: “P.F. Chang's

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!

Re: “Colorado Mountain Brewery

Ate there again today. The place continues to improve; I give it 4 stars as I reserve 5 star status for places like the Broadmoor.

My wife's Fish and Chips were nothing short of awesome, the 3 large pieces were each a good 8-inches long and thick, the crust was crisp and not oily like so many places, and the french fries were addictive with their amazingly thin coating, staying crisp to the end.

My caesar salad had great grilled shrimp that were perfectly done.

The chocolate torte dessert is enough for several people and a must for chocolate fans.

Lastly, one way I judge eateries is by the quality of their restrooms, and CMB has about the nicest, cleanest restrooms I've ever seen.

You won't be disappointed here. Go.

Re: “Azada Mexican Grill

Outstanding, homemade Mexican. The rojo is ridiculously good.

Re: “Great Wall Seafood Buffet

I agree, even with the new ownership and remodeling, it all looked and tasted worse. No wonder why they closed it down.

Re: “1st & 10 Sports Bar & Grill

Cheap booze, nice staff. Usually close to empty though. This is great for a friendly social time but not a good place to looking for a new spouse.

Re: “Ruffrano's Heavenly Squeeze Juice Bar

Was dying to try this place. Finally did today and it was terrible. I'm not sure if it's normally this bad, but there was only one employee who was clearly high as shit. Took him over 15 minutes to make one drink. Didn't wash his hands before or wear gloves and touched all of the fruit and vegetables. Didn't wash hands after either and handed me my drink covered in gunk. Friendly guy but too friendly and made me feel uncomfortable. Was more interested in chatting than making a good drink. I had just finished the incline and was on my way home and just wanted to get in and out, not spend 20 minutes talking to some weirdo. I believe his name started with a K, could be wrong but he works at devil's pizza too. If the owner is reading this, please get rid of that guy. I am never going back solely because of my experience with that employee. And the drink I got "Garden of the Gods" went straight to the trash because of the lack of cleanliness on his part. Definitely a waste of $7.

Re: “Tong Tong

Tong-Tong is my go-to Korean restaurant in Colorado Springs. The service has always been outstanding, with attentive, friendly servers that go out of their way to make you feel at home. They have always been ready with a smile and a suggestion of what I should try next. The food is likewise outstanding, with the wide assortment of soups being particularly good.

Everything from standards like bulgogi (thin sliced marinated beef) and japchae (a sweet potato noodle dish) to more unusual dishes like sundubu-jjigae (a spicy soft tofu soup) are served sizzling in their dishes and incredibly good. Unless you ask for it spicy, the level of hotness is under control, so this non-Korean can enjoy it without sweating the whole time.

I would suggest trying it at lunchtime, as their lunch menu has most of the standards at substantially reduced prices (around $6.99 for most). Even at lunch, you receive a wide assortment of traditional side dishes with your entre. The staff will gladly refill any of them if you ask for more.

The only knock on this place (and the only reason I didn't give it five stars) is that it could use a good remodel. The carpeting is worn in many places, the booths and tables have seen better days, and the restrooms, though clean, need some maintenance work.

Still, that shouldn't deter you from trying this place. Before you know it, you'll be a regular like me.

Re: “The Upper Room Coffee

Great shop love the smoothies !

Re: “The Upper Room Coffee

Quaint "old victorian" shop with great people and a great vibe. Used to be Firehouse BBQ, located in a renovated turn of the century fire station on Colorado Blvd. just off of 8th street. Conveniently located just outside of downtown Colorado Springs; 2 blocks or so from I-25 just west of 8th Street.

Feels a lot like a neighborhood hang-out. Great place to watch the game, read a book, have a conversation, or just take some down time.

Jeff and Caryn Andrews are the owners and are usually there meeting people and making them feel like family. I highly recommend this place as a "must visit" for locals and guests.

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.

Re: “Crystal Park Cantina

Lived in the Springs for 30 years, but moved to Albuquerque about 10 years ago- was back to visit friends/family and started missing my chile fix, so thought I would visit what was one of my favorite 'mexican' restaurants. Kinda surprised at the change-over to this new place but 'what the heck, might as try it as long as i was there'. Loved the ambience and the wait staff was great. The food - not so much. Thought it was overpriced and so-so. Maybe I have gotten spoiled eating some really great southwestern/new mexican food in 'el Burque'.

Re: “King's Chef Diner - Bijou

As a former Palmer student and frequent down-towner, there is nothing bad about KC that isn't wrong with any other downtown breakfast place. My potatoes have never been burnt, and I have never heard the staff curse. I've been earing here for three years. It is a DINER, so the food is bound to be greasy, but nothing compared to a place like Taco Star, for instance. I've had everything on the menu. All the bad reviews must be from some really sophisticated eaters, because to a normal person who doesn't get fresh herbs for her food everynight, this place is good.
