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.

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

Re: “Sahara Café

Eat there atleast 1-2 times a week. The beef platter with pita bread and humas is absolutely wonderful. I go in there by myself with my daughter and I will sit there for atleast a full hour eating and enjoying their wonderful sage tea, both hot and cold!

Defiantly the best place in Colorado Springs/Manitou.

Re: “Meadow Muffins

We have been regular patrons of Meadow Muffins for almost 3 years now and it stands out as the most enjoyable, high class, fun, entertaining and SAFE bar in old colorado city. The menu has changed and its a great place to eat, meet friends, enjoy reasonably priced drinks. I like that there are several bouncers around to keep the trouble makers out, unlike the competiting bar across the street that allows the usual fights inside and outside their business with no concern for the innocent regular customers. Meadow Muffins will always be our favorite place and our old friends and new one's to come in the years to come. The owner's are very welcoming and encourage any concerns you may have, which there are none. Lets help spread the word and everyone meet for the nightly entertainment...

Re: “Oakley's Café & Bistro at Sundance Mountain Lodge

New staff and new management have made some great improvements! I tried this restuarant again recently... and it was okay in the past.... but it is great now! The daily and weekly specials are great and the staff was super friendly and attentive. Thanks, Oakleys!
