Sad that Stacy's experience was so negative. Ours was an amazing one. This theater hosted a summertime workshop for kids this year (and I've heard they've done this in the past too). The low cost of the workshop - $20 - was completely manageable as it gave my son (14) his first taste of being in a play. They're very patient with the kids and worked with them for 9 days 1-5 pm to put together an original play. The building looks to be the original with very little remodeling to preserve its historical appearance. This theater and it's staff are one of Pueblo's treasures. We look forward to coming back for scheduled shows later in the year.
Awesome vet. Dedicated to our animals. Wouldn't hesitate to put my animals in their care.
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!
great show, fantastic music, huge crowd, three stages and a lot of fun
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!!
One of the worst bars or restaurants in Colorado Springs hands down. It's like The Golden Cue (in terms of potential violence of death) except 10 times (which makes for a harder time escaping) smaller with way less people (meaning you'll most likely see your killer coming.)
How do I dislike thee, let me count the ways. The loud colors, the interior and exterior doesn't look bad, but the music was weak, there wasn't a bartender behind the bar, they were playing pool about 10 ft away- had to wait for them to get my order in. I thought this place was owned by authentic Jamaican owner(s) but judging from the music, not! Is it roomy, heck no. I've seen bedrooms bigger than this place. There's a dart board, a pool table, and about 10 tables and chairs. That's it, you've just seen the entire place. Not even going to get into the food. Let's just say I've had far better food from the taco truck on airport rd in the evenings.
Different Owner(s) now Todd and his 2 diff employees have great bud (Jack Herer CC 2012 Winner) excellent house kief, mostly sativa and great prices and great dry caviar, I reccommend you stop by if you are looking for a disp.
This is about the Test Drive Service Center
So irate! I took my car in because it was making a funny noise (user error). I dropped it off on a Wednesday evening because I was not going to be around Thursday when it was scheduled to be looked at. I was set up with a tech Wednesday to do a ride along to see if he could figure out the problem. He couldn’t at the time. Around 2pm Thursday evening I get a call about the problem. I tell them to fix it. This is when I was told that the parts for my car would be special ordered and that they would not be in until Monday.
I was blown away. My issue with that is that it never came up Wednesday. They never said that if parts were needed they would have to be ordered, because your car is so new (2011). No one ever said you will be out of a car for about five days. I wanted them to put it back together and I was going to pick it up, pay for the parts that I was told later, were special ordered so I had to pay for them, and take my car somewhere else. I should have!
I received no call Monday about my car. I called Tuesday after 11 am and the service chic gets on the phone and says "Oh yeah, we'll have it done by the end of the day today." I ask her why that would be because she told me Monday. I asked her why no one contacted me Monday to let me know they were not done. She replies," Let me look at my call log and see, I called this number (my home number) at 3:40pm yesterday." I'm furious now because she says that she has a log saying she called my house and no one called! I say, no, I have a phone log as well and I was at home, you didn't call me. Then she goes into making oh sounds and mumbling about she thought she did and she doesn't know what happened. The kicker is, I gave them my cellphone number and she had previously contacted me on. So… now she lies about calling my home number? She never even said she left a message. Probably because she knew she was lying. She left a message on my cellphone Thursday.
So, not only did they not call me early in the morning Monday to say they didn't receive the parts and would not be done but they lied about calling me. She said the parts eventually came in around 2:30pm Monday. However, she said the car would not be ready until the end of the day Tuesday. That means they knew Monday morning that they weren't going to be able to fix the car and no one called then. Plus, this job should not take all day. What I’m getting is that no one touched my car Monday when the parts came in and they did not start on it Tuesday morning either.
I will never take my car there again unless it has a warranty issue. I took my car in for services such as oil changes and rotations (I drive a lot). No more. I will no longer pass along their name to those who are searching for cars either.
Keeping my car for six days is one thing, however; my major problem is the lie and then the lack of communication. I should not have to call them to chase down my car. They need to get more competent people in there as well. Obviously those that are working in the service department at the desk are overwhelmed and cannot handle the task they are assigned. Lying is not the answer. Had she admitted she forgot to call me I would have been upset but it is different than outright lying to me.
I will have the work inspected by another mechanic because I don't trust them after reading other reviews and the lie.
Where to start, the building itself was beautiful: then there was the food, which was ,at best, as good as the food you could get in the trash at Denny's. It was over priced as well. All the products used in each dish were either frozen or canned. If they have a chef he is at best incompetent. The management was not accommodating and rude. Furthermore if you are going nickle and dime the customers your food should at least be eatable. Never have i had my kids, at a restaurant, attempt to eat kraft mac and cheese and pre-frozen french fries for $6.00. Not one entree came with a salad, soup, or bread and they charged $10 for sharing a rack of ribs. The steaks were over seasoned and over priced for the amount of food and their vegetables tasted like dishwater and were stringy. Not only will I never ever go back there but I will tell everyone of my experience in the the hopes that I can prevent them from an over priced disappointment. I wish that I knew the aaa reviewer that gave them the 1 diamond rating so I could suggest he might take it back. Written most sincerely by a very disappointed local chef with plenty experience in the food and beverage industry.
this place was garbage. I've grown better weed by accident.
It's called belly dancing, and his actually one of the best in town... Shame you didn't enjoy the show!!! Try again :-)
Just another lame (and futile) attempt in Colorado at mixing several Louisiana culinary cultures that seem completely misunderstood outside of the New Orleans metro area, in Acadiana centered around Lafayette, or in North Louisiana above Alexandria. Whenever you read of a Colorado restaurant specializing in "New Orleans Cajun Cuisine," you do not have to even leave home, much less waste money on a meal that will be unsatisfactory. This is because some ignorant (or fraudulent) proprietor is attempting to mix two or more completely unrelated culinary cultures that seldom come together, even in Louisiana. The difference is that New Orleans cuisine is not Cajun, and is instead more French, Creole, or even Italian in nature. Some of the crap found at "Nawlins," (a stupid phonetic way that local Louisianaians pronounce New Orleans) would never be found in any Orleans or Jefferson Parish restaurant. Conversely, such New Orleans specialties as the Muffuletta (Italian), beignets, and some forms of rice beans and rice would be rare or nonexistent in Acadiana, which is Cajun Country in Southwest Louisiana west of the Mississippi River and mostly south of Opelousas. Other "Cajun specialities" offered at "Nawlins" are nether Cajun nor Creole; rather, they are derived from the Black soul food tradition, which is indigenious to North Louisiana and other Southern states.
It completely baffles me why local proprietors do not adhere to three basic rules: select one Louisiana culinary culture, keep the menu short and simple, and be absolutely obsessive about authentic preparation and flavor as it is produced in Louisiana.
As it now stands, Nawlins will never survive the Colorado Springs "five year rule;" namely, the place will be out of business in 60 months or less.
The biggest rip off!! My friend bought a bottle of wine for $14.00 they charged us 37.00 each for each bottle of the same exact wine. I will never ever go there again. That was the biggest rip off ever, not even fancy wine, and they give it to you for $14.00 a bottle to take away with you and the atmosphere wasn't that great. This place SUCKS!!!
great so far
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
Very good and affordable. I've had the sweet/sour chicken, schezschuan, lemon chicken, orange chicken, all the soups, the lo mein, and most of the variety items on the menu. Never had a bad xperience. I highly recommend this place.
I had recently read a review in the CS Indy that talked about this dispensary and how they had to move due to the new MM laws in Colorado, but other than that, I had never heard of this place .. what a bad on me !!
I happen to be downtown at Southside Johnny's, and saw the dispensary across the street and decided to check them out, being the dispensary whore that I am. It was a few minutes before closing, so I knew I had to be quick.
Everything that the budtender pulled-out was AMAZING ! It all smelled great, it all looked wonderful, and everything was cured exceptionally well. Being under the gun with time, I decided on several 1gm J's of the meds he had in the jars, which would allow me to try a multitude of their product; and I would not be disappointed !! The med. that REALLY grabbed my attention was the Bubble Gum. I only smoked 3 hits and I was stoned and stupid in a blink of an eye, and over the course of the next hour - WOW !! Over the past few days I've tried all of their meds, and can only say that every one of them have been outstanding .. honestly !!
I rarely write reviews or give dispensaries kudos, but these guys have something special going on here, and just thought everyone should know about them. Keep up the great work guys !!

They essentially allow no returns. If it wilts or dies from bugs or a disease the plant came with you are just out of luck. Also, the owner and office/register staff don't care about customers. I won't be going back.
I really liked the atmosphere when I first walked in and even the people were decent, but the crowd overall seemed snobish and not willing to mingle. I got over that quickly because I was there to smoke hookah anyways. Maybe five minutes into the night, one of the WORKERS there took off his shirt and started doing this weird bellydance for about 30 minutes. I was there with my boyfriend and it was very uncomfortable. I havent gone back since. If I wanted to see some half naked skinny freak strip, id go to a strip club. I have to admit, it was the most well kept place Ive seen in town for a hookah bar, but the dancing was offputting.
