Re: “Billy's Old World Pizza

I had a bad experience the first time I came, the menu online had the wrong prices. I went it, found out it was $10 more than advertised, was upset, got the pizza anyway and left. Loved the pizza (I had the Chicago style, I can't speak to the other offerings) so I got a Groupon, the Groupon says it is a flat fee which gets you a medium two topping pizza, an appetizer and two drinks, dine-in or carry out. I called and ordered this for carry out, go to pickup my order and there was a balance, the owner wanted to charge me gratuity for my carry out order, was mad I got it for carry out, said that was an error and wanted to charge me over the amount it said it was valued at. I was appalled, showed him the Groupon, and he said it was their error and I had to pay the difference. I will never come back. If you advertise a price, you honor it.

Re: “Rocky Mountain Cancer Center

Yesterday I called memorial Hospital Central to get an update on my treatment where I've been going for 13 years. They informed me that my appointment on February 23, 2017 was canceled my new insurance doesn't cover treatment at a main hospital it has to be an outpatient clinic. My doctor referred me to Rocky Mountain cancer center and sent over my records on the 24th, Joanne stated that she received them yesterday February 27 at 9:15 AM. Four days after my appointment was canceled. I still haven't heard from either my doctor or their office so I called in. As I was doing so I was venting to Joanne on the phone about what had happened to me, she took it personal and decided to make sure that they would not treat me at their location, she took her own feelings into account instead of providing service to human being who is in need of treatment or i will get very sick and potentially pass. They have no regard for the human life if someone is in need of treatment regardless of their actions you Take care of them,you are a medical facility, if someone is in need of help no matter the circumstances and they have insurance and it is COVERED AT YOUR LOCATION your should treat them instead they declined me service for venting to you on the phone for what has happened to me.

Re: “R.J. Montgomery Salvation Army New Hope Center

I have given two separate tests at RJ Montgomery for UA'S both times they have come up hot for methamphetamines and THC both times I've went down to my parole office to task and took a retest and both times they have come up nenegative either they need to get into the 21st century and start using Labcorp like everybody else does or they need to get new tests. One of the two, it's a decent facility but their tests are out of date.

Re: “R.J. Montgomery Salvation Army New Hope Center

I have a titanium plate in my wrist but it's perfectly functional and I can get to the top bunk to sleep just fine. I was turned away to the street because RJ Montgomery says because of my wrist I am only allowed a bottom bunk and they have no more bottom bunks available. When I told them that I would be fine with a top bunk, the shelter supervisor told me that I was not allowed to have what's available due to insurance reasons and therefore not allowed to stay in the shelter. I am homeless and it is wintertime.

Extreme Bargains is closed. Cheapies is the new discount store in Colorado Springs and it's much better.

Re: “Uchenna

Kim Holdren Kowalski lists her self as currently employed by this business on her LinkedIn page, claims she's been their webmaster since 2011, yet in her glowing review, she does not disclose this.

At best it's highly questionable.

Re: “Benny's Restaurant & Lounge

A little over a month ago, one of the bartenders named Chris Anerdon assaulted me and attempted to kill me.
He fled the scene of the crime before the police arrived.
I have filed charges with the city, and am in the process of getting a restraining order against him, and several other employees of Bennys who participated in the assault.
Please, especially women, do not go to Bennys. More than one female friend has been Assaulted in the parking lot and the owner Dana, and the incompetent bouncer named Mike have turned a blind eye to drug dealing, violent assaults, sexual crimes, and homelessness on the property.
I have also attempted to reasonably make contact with the owner to discuss the fact that he is essentially endorsing his employees attempted murder of me(worth no provocation).
I am also in the process of going over the incompetent police office Adam Loughtons head and getting a supervisor to expand the list of charges that are to eventually be served to Chris Anderson and several other employees at this criminal blight on our community.

Re: “La Bella Vita Ristorante Italiano

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.

Re: “O'Malley's Steak Pub

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.

Re: “Bingo Burger

After walking by several times, I decided
to give Bingo Burger a chance. I live downtown. I chose to "build my own" and asked for a cheeseburger with fried/grilled onions. I was told by Sarah that they had "glazed onions" which are pre made. I'm not familiar with "glazed onions" and I don't think it sounds very appetizing, since it is pre made. I decided to wait until they weren't busy, as a courtesy, and went in to talk to the manager the following day. He also told me that they would not grill my onions. I happen to believe that the customer is always right. I'm from the East Coast and there is no hesitation to accommodate a customer who wants grilled onions on their cheeseburger. If I'm not permitted to have a burger the way I ordered it, I'm not going back. It's a shame too, because it seemed like a nice place. I'll sooner go to Jack Quinn's for the fish and chips. Bingo, feel free to contact me and make this right. If you make it right, I will remove this post, if possible. 719-480-1250 Christian Romansky

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

First time in, i don't know how the drinks are because i was never served. The band sounded good, but after taking a seat at the bar, the staff walked past me twice without so much as an acknowledgement, let alone asking what i wanted to drink. The manager in guessing then took a seat out from behind the bar next to I'm assuming a regular / friend, with his back to me, and proeeded to watch the band. I more than likely won't be returning. Went to finish line, and was served within 3 minutes.

Re: “Bernie's Place

They bullied a bartender who been there for over 15 years for filing a complaint with the State of Colorado over employment practices. The owner was to have said the bartender was "too old". The State said the bar did in fact engage in retaliation which is illegal after someone files a complaint. The bartender was bullied then fired after 6 months for a bogus "infraction".
Avoid this place unless you support discrimination in employment. Bernie would never have stood for that behavior but he passed away and his ex-wife took over. She is none too bright obviously.

Re: “Mill Outlet Fabric Shop

The employees are very sweet and knowledgeable and they do have a few items that unfortunately other stores do not. However, a large percentage have been there for years (the bolt ends are dated) and the owner is completely condescending and degrading to both customers and employees. He also saves an uncomfortable amount of personal information for who knows what..... A fabric store should be warm friendly and creative and while I prefer to support local businesses, his is one I will not!!!!!

Re: “Aspen Auto Clinic - Tutt Blvd.

This article is wrong, and no research was done. The Independent is brown nosing an advertiser. The above review has to be a fluke. I'm disappointed the Independent would tout them as reliable, without doing any research (just google "Denver, news, hidden camera, Aspen auto clinic". We've taken cars there twice, and both times were a scam. One time they stripped our oil pan screw and then tried to say it was like that. It never leaked until after that point. They wanted to charges us around 250$ for a new oil pan, and another mechanic re-threaded the hole for 120$. They caused it. Another issue, they wanted 800$ to replace the radiator, actual cost 420$. Another issue, we told them something was wrong with the right front axle joint, they agreed, wanted to fix it. Never was an issue, 3 mechanics have all cleared it since. This is a bad business. Beware, do some homework..
