Tried it one evening after coming down off the Incline. I heard that it was good. Wait staff was not very friendly, wondered if the dust on my clothes made them think I would not tip. Not a very good selection of beer, even Mexican beer was spartan. Food very bland. I would give this an overall rating of okay if your starving and everything else is booked.
I'm thoroughly surprised that this place has gotten any good reviews. My husband and I went to Poblanos tonight for the first time, and we were completely disappointed. The waitress was slow, the "sangria" I ordered had a milky texture, the appetizer (we ordered the Queso Fundido) was a glob of grease and cheese, and the food was totally bland, even after a good dose of salt. My husband ate all of his food in hopes he'd find the flavor, but I couldn't stomach all of mine and left over half the plate. There are so many better places in Colorado Springs, so don't waste time or money here. Even Taco Bell is better because it at least has flavor!
I would not recommend it at all. The service is pretty bad and the food borders on mediocre. Perhaps for someone who has never tasted Peruvian food it will seem that the food offered in this restaurant is exotic in taste but Peruvian cuisine if far superior than that.
I won't be back! I could not believe the foul language that the employees use so freely. Everything form F--k to C--t. I was shocked to say the least. If I had been there alone, I would have walked out. Thank God they stopped their cussing when a family with little kids came in. Get some class people, your DISGUSTING.
Went there for my twin sisters' 21st birthday. WILL NEVER GO AGAIN. There was a guy who kept trying to touch her and then trying to start fights with my mom and guy friend. They never kicked him out. Just told us to stay away from him even after he tried to jump my friend and growled at my mother. We should've just called the cops. Ruined their birthday. They closed the bowling alley at 1 when the website said they were open till 2. No drink specials even though when we looked on the website and had called ahead. Bouncers were nice but useless. I'll be taking my business elsewhere.
This place is over hyped. They have decent pizza, but they do not care about either customers or employees. NY attitude is one thing but not giving a crap is another thing. I briefly worked for them at the Platte location for about three months as a delivery driver. Before that I worked as a driver for another place for six years. They have bad phone lines so orders are hard to take. They often do not have enough drivers working so orders are late. If there was a problem getting an order to a customer I often could not call the customer because I would have an incorrect phone number. Then the manager would just lie to the customer to cover his own ass. The pizza may be OK but there are other places in town that aren't going to treat you like crap and probably have better pizza. Don't give your money to the folks at Borriello Brothers. There is better pizza out there and nicer people.
Some of the rudest bartenders I have ever encountered. Watch out for the blonde with the filthy mouth and total lack of social skills. Food was atrocious - the grilled cheese will survive the Apocalypse. Hard wooden bar stools with no backs for the live music - pretty uncomfortable.
mediocre food; lazy, inattentive service. On a Thursday evening at 5:30 there were more staff than diners, however we had to wave at the server for five minutes before we got more water. The pasta was uninspired, the bread was boring, the salad was average - will not go back
I really can't believe this restaurant has 4 out of 5 stars!!! Both my husband and I had a SEVERE case of FOOD POISONING! This was the WORST Cajun food! I will NEVER go back! The food and drinks were both OVERPRICED! I would strongly suggest you save your money, and health and dine elsewhere.
We sat in the balcony theatre section at Comedy Works last night. Has anyone else ever fallen from the horrible stairs that lead to your seat? There must be a 21" drop off of the cement stairs when you go to sit down at your seat. Poor design and very unsafe. They told me I was the only one to ever fall down. I missed most of the final act because I was trying to tell a manager what happened. I wasn't offered ice and they were VERY rude to me! No apologies, just made me feel stupid...
Chris Diablo above must not know how to use his caps lock key.
It would be great to have a good place in Colorado Springs to see live music as opposed to cheap DJs pumping digitized dreck at you. Certainly the Thirsty Parrot has the stage and sound system to get the job done. The problem is typical... the management cannot be bothered to promote anything - even when the shows are going on under their own roof. No one bothers to even change the marquee. Free live music may be happening upstairs and no one downstairs would ever know about it, since all the management cares about is keeping their regular DJ acts pumping their worthless tripe near the kitchen, which always seems to be out of half the advertised items. That dive is going downhill fast. I don't expect it will survive summer 2010.
Truly the worst in town.
Great place for breakfast and lunch...in the same day because the service is so damn slow, by the time you finish breakfast, it'll be lunch time. The food is just okay but the prices aren't bad and if the service was good, it'd be 100% worth it. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. My husband and I have waited 20+ minutes for something as simple as drink refills. Getting your check is another chunk of your day gone.
Only consider this place if you have a good couple hours to waste and don't mind being thirsty for a good part of your meal.
A few years ago, Halla San was a lively restaurant that served authentic Korean cuisine (I know, I lived in Korea). My favorite WAS the bulgogi. The proprietor, Jeannie, was always friendly and attentive. I am so sad to say that this is no longer case... We were the only patrons there and the food and service were sub-standard at best. In fact it had an eerie feel, perhaps succombing to the decrepitness of the surroundings. Unfortunately, I highly recommend you do not go here.
This place is extremely expensive and the staff is mean and rude. $10.00 plus tax for a double cheese burger and $1.50 for a side of green chile (about 2 table spoons, no kidding). I got a to-go order, the order arrived for the waitress by the cash register, she proceeded to collect the bill and never brought my food over. After she put my money in the till and walked away, I asked, "Is that mine over there?". She replied, (Oh, fu**!). Finally, she brought my food over and I examined the package. Granted, I was a little disgusted by her verbiage, I made a comment as to the size of the side of green chile(seriously 50ml, the size of a shot for $1.50). She then sarcastically replied, "Do you want another?", I chuckled, and said, "I don't want to pay another $1.50. She arrogantly closed with, "If you're going to throw a fit, I'll just throw one in!"...To make a long story short, $13.00 for a double cheese burger with rude service. Oh, and if you want fries, they're an additional $2.00. These people suck!
I will never go back to The Warehouse. They put on a buffet for a work function I went to -- the food was decent, although their idea of desert for 75 people was one tray of cream puffs. However, six of us got our cars broken into while dining there, in their parking lot. When we went back in to get support from the staff in calling the police, the waitresses response was "Wow! I'm surprised that happened tonight. It usually happens around Christmas!" Anyplace that says break-ins "usually" happen at a certain time, then don't bother calling the police....makes me wonder. The best food in the world wouldn't be worth that attitude or expense.
Went expecting good german food,had ok meal that was overpriced and service was below average. i have never been to a german restaraunt that dosent have mashed potatos every day of the week. couldnt get over it when the server told me that.
Had the pizza.would not recommend it. sauce is missing somthing.Flavor. save your money buy a pizza from a grocery store.
if all you rely on is good looking chicks to bring people in..than you need to get better looking chicks
This place is terrible! I won a free steak dinner for a group from a radio station for up to 20 people and they ran out of food several times and ended up having to wait over an hour. Also, while I waited, I had two beers which after tip came out to be $10 (poor tip for poor service). When I checked my bank statement the next day, they charged me $50! And conveniently I can't get ahold of anyone to fix this. Terrible terrible terrible "night club". I will never go back there again. Do yourself a favor and go to Jack Quinn's instead of wasting you time at this lame bar.
