Joey's Pizza is NY Pizza? I am from the best place in the world for Italian food period. Brooklyn New York! Nobody can beat Brooklyn Italian food. You can see me at Joey's maybe once or twice a week and I'll tell you where real Brooklyn Pizza is, but it's not in Colorado Springs, The closest thing to Brooklyn Pizza is in Pueblo Colorado, off the river walk. Now I am not going to review Joey's kitchen, the appearance, the people that work there or their ahem IQ. It's about pizza, and this is the closest I've tasted to Long Island NY Pizza. Granted, it's not Brooklyn Pizza, but it is very close to Long Island NY pizza. With all the pizza places in Colorado Springs who claim to be NY Pizza, this is the closest you will find in all of Colorado Springs. I should know, I've been looking for 2 years.
Anyone in Colorado who rates this place high, knows nothing about Italian food. Pronounced by Coloradans as "Eye Talian food". If you think this place represents Italian food in any way, you are sadly mistaken. My family and I will never be back. Sign me the only Italian in all of Colorado Springs.
Tru, you can be on my list of those with bad behavior. You can see my list on this Independent site in various places. I do not criticize without cause and I use my real name. I will back up my comments with facts. I will ask who are you that you deserve special treatment and demand that someone lose their job. Bad service? I would spill drinks on you and I do not blame a bartender whose job is to serve glasses of angry, stupid, melancholy or however it affects you to everyone. Instant mood swings, fistfights and loudmouths- you name it and if you think your dollars are going to make or break anyone I say "think again".
Only place I shop. The employees are super nice to me. Texts for specials. Great meds!
Best quality for the price and the tenders are fantastic won't ever leave this store as my member store. Best store in town not just the westside
Awesome drinks and friendly staff. Best new drinks ever!
Tony...FIRE JAIME. I know 11 people..plus myself..that no longer come there because of her. She seens to hate her job and ishateful person. Maybe shes going through some stuff. Dunno, but her combination of ignoring customers and viscious UNFOUNDED verbal abuse is running businedd away. The word from people that temain is " yeah, shes like that". My question is..why is that ok?
I would say to anyone readinh this...stay away. SO many other placed...Thunder and Buttons is one and the barstaff thete will joke around AND take your order..make good drinks and are tge epitomy of great servicr. Probably why I tip Lindsey so well...HAPPILY spending $55 last Wednesday and want to go back. Go there or ANYWHERE else besides B's with'the "B"!
Most awesome artists around, and a pleasant environment.
Great customer service and really goes the extra mile to retain their customer base. This proves to be a great lunch stop for the busy businessman and the sushi loving hippy. Try it out today!
For our 20th anniversary, our children arranged an evening at this world class restaurant. We were warmly greeted in the parking lot by Carlos and escorted to our table by Marcia. Mere words cannot describe the experience. They have a perfect level of attention to every detail, amazing layers of flavor, and service as if you were their only guest. The menu is unmatched and the Crème Brulee is like no other. Thank you for this wonderful memory.
This is a great store. The staff is awesome and super friendly. They are always easy to talk to and definitely helpful with any questions you might have. I have never had a bad experience going in. My husband and I have bought several toys from this store and are always satisfied 😋
Everyone leaving reviews on here is spot on...its a joke....send the health inspector...and i don't care if the review is a year old...I was there today and its all still spot on!!!! smells like pot and cigs and the staff is the rudest I have ever encountered.
Excellent chefs, fresh fish, eloquent atmosphere.
NOT sure what the last guy is freaking out about??? Bubble Hash? WOW, you got to be kidding me?!! All that over bubble hash? Man, what do you do if someone cuts you off on the hwy? Stop blaming others for your mistake!
I have been shopping here for awhile now and have NEVER been mislead by any of the staff! Everyone is SO HELPFUL and HONEST here - I love coming here! I RECOMMEND this place to everyone! They try very hard to help patients with their needs and have a good quality and selection of products! Great deals as well!
STAY AWAY!!!!!!! STEER CLEAR OF THIS PLACE. they have alot of garbage product and will knowingly sell it to you. I bought a gram of "bubble hash" and it was basically the same quality as the Kief you would get out of a grinder. When I called the girl on the phone basically told me they knew it was of poor quality because they had so much of it. In 4 years that's the first time I have ever had a bud tender send me to a poor quality product knowing it was shitty. Please spread the word so no other red card holders get screwed over to.
I love SEVL it's a great place to hang with friends
Actually I have been in a few times, the last time being Monday about 4PM when we rode up. My friend and I had Mike's Limeade and the only other customer there my friend knew. Bartenders have always been pleasant and quick.
I was teasing Haley as indicated by a ; and a ) for those who missed it. : )
The Iron Springs Chateau was bought by new owners in 2013 and they have done a wonderful job rejuvenating the dinner theater. The menu has had a complete makeover. The website is www.ironspringschateau.com and they have a very responsive Facebook page also.
This is a story of how a local business losses a good, profitable customer.
I have been going here for almost a decade now. We are OK with the random service misses but today (Father's Day) just took the cake. This is the second time that this similar issue has happened to us.
My Wife asked me where I wanted to go to have a nice, just the two of us, Father's Day Dinner. I said WINGS! In short order we fired up the Harley and hit the road from the Peyton area on our way to O'Malley's in Palmer Lake. I wanted their wings that much so we rode the 30 plus miles to get there. The place if you have ever been there is a local, biker'ish bar that does do wings good with the other food being pretty standard pub quality. When in doubt we do like to patronize mom-n-pop local businesses in the area.
However, it took us a long time to hit O'Malley's after the first service zinger last year. Well they just did it again and frankly that is it! We work hard for our money and it is very difficult to pass that money along to a place that seems to think having poorly trained, bad attitude waitresses are OK with providing terrible service to very loyal customers. A waitress named Hannah (not even our primary waitress) felt is necessary to make a scene when she had thought we had too much Blue Cheese dressing for our wings (and unlimited salad bar). The fact is we asked for Blue Cheese but were delivered Ranch instead which I had to explain to her while our food was getting cold.
The back story: when our burger, salad bar and wings were delivered (by the owner) there was no waitress in sight right afterwards. They were busy, they were slow so with a nice hot steaming pile of wings sitting right in front of us we thought it appropriate to snag a scoop of Blue Cheese from the already "paid for" salad bar and start digging in. However, Hannah walked up behind me looking over my shoulder and rudely interrupted us right in the middle of eating to start berating us publically on the dressing issue. We were forced to listen to her recite, in a very condescending manner, some nonsense about it was too much for my order of 10 wings so she was going to add an upcharge to my bill. I want to make a note here too that I actually ended up not having enough for my 10 wings and ate the last 3 dry. We literary sat there dumbfounded listening to her, along with the other surrounding tables hearing her as well, give a lesson on Blue Cheese dressing ordering practices for O'Malleys Pub. I honestly wished I had recorded this so you all can actually hear for yourself this ridiculous situation! I told my waitress about the encounter (who was nice) and she explained that Hanna already had come to work with a bad attitude. FYI- If you look at Timothy D review you can see this is a common theme at O'Malley's BTW.
The owner was there, therefore I guess my waitress told him about the experience and they took the charge off the bill! Like that was going to make a difference. It was not a money thing, it was an issue with very poor service....... She completely embarrassed us and certainly didn't help the Father's Day mood. Although my waitress was fine she was fairly apathetic to the situation and if the owner was aware of the issue and did not take the time to at least apologize he must have been equally apathetic too or thought I was stealing dressing. My Wife and I talked about it on the way home and decided that unless there is some group thing we need to go to O'Malley's for we will not go out of our way to patronize them again until they find their way back to treating people with respect. this was not just a bad experience, it was an awful one that ultimately for O'Malley's took a good customer and chased them off. In this case you have to hold the owner accountable since this is a common theme with our experiences and judging by other reviews is how they run their business.
Look, I have to say the wings are very good and I can't take that away from them. BUT they have lost their magic, local draw and most importantly the reason they are in business- THE CUSTOMER. I would think the owner might clue into the fact that if multiple people are calling them out on their oh so important "dressing" policy maybe it just might make sense to give enough in the first place.
Well Robert , I disagree! You have obviously not been in lately. There are changes daily and it is a fun place to be!! Besides how would you even know what it's like when all you did was window shop! Must be very lonely out there!! Next time don't be so scared, we won't bite you!
