Nice people, good hash, prices aren't too bad for quality...
Good knowledge, tasty food, nice safe neighborhood.Discounts for veterans.I "put down"in the early 70's.
Weed is much stronger today.
Hiring the new chef and snagging Nate as a bartender were excellent decisions. The late night menu needs work and the staff are okay, but not brilliant. More training and a little more panache would go a long way. It's Blue Star, not Jose Muldoons and I expect the staff to live up to a higher standard. All that said, it's good value, the best martini in town, and a wine list that compels a second look.
Actually tried the above mentioned chicken salad to my disappointment. The tea is lovely, the list nearly overwhelming. The atmosphere and boutique are worthy of repeat visits. Lunch, however, was lacking. Tops on presentation, mediocre on taste and the lovely "shell" on my "sandwich" inedible. Will return for tea, but not when hungry.
Saw a great band here, lots of fun.
Saigon Springs is one of our favorite eateries for lunch or light dinner. The ambiance is informal, the food is prepared with fresh ingredients, value priced, and the service always attentive. Try the bun (noodle bowl), especially #141-Marinated Grilled Shrimp.
Have to admit, I'm a sucker for a Pb&j. I only wish they were open 24hrs!
I've been coming here since I was an undergrad at UCCS in 1996. A fellow student, who was recovering from a DH in the Army, lived across the street and we ate at the North End often. Now, I visit a few times a year with an old professor...it's our place. Yes, it's a hole in the wall. Yes, the service can be slow. Yes, the food is excellent.
If you haven't been here, go.
I admire the single mother owner of North End Diner. It takes a lot to raise children and run a business, but it take more out of you to run a restaurant. I did it once and it was too demanding and customers are fickle.
Because of my diet, I enjoy eating there. The omletes are good and my husband has a great breakfast. If I don't want breakfast, then the staff will fix me something special without a hassel.
It is often true they take more time than is necessary, but I think of it as if 'mother' is cooking- you can't rush things. So yes, don't eat there if you have an appointment in an hour. And, don't be afraid to get up and help yourself to another cup of whatever you're drinking. They don't mind and I like helping myself.
What you probably don't know is they hire people trying to get back on their feet in society. So enjoy your next meal there, be kind while you let them know how they can make your visit more enjoyable.
It's rare to have a family owned business these days with all the pressure of franchises. I take people there to share the at home atmosphere and to support the dying breed of family owned businesses. How about trying them with this information in hand.
Love the place, have enjoyed going there since finding it in 2008. Solid performance, reliable service, delicious food, and 10% off rolls during happy hour have made me a dedicated repeat customer.
This was my favorite hang out when I lived in the Springs. The customers are friendly and from every walk of life you could think of. The drinks are stong and the music is good, kareoke is best in town and the weekend steaks that are grilled outside are to perfect and cheap priced to ever miss. Penny now of Phoenix AZ
I think the food is outstanding - always a good experience.
Excellent lunch buffet during the week.
Great, unique food with many vegetarian/vegan options. Live music is pretty good. The patio in the summer is the best.
Fabulous food and drinks - great service. Live music would be nice.
Great fun and really helpful staff.
Heart of Jerusalem has the best hummus I have ever had! I don't usually like falafel, but theirs is fantastic and has become my normal order. The dolmas are perfect and served warm and the baklava is nommy. I wasn't too fond of the sandwiches, but the pita bread is incredible, especially with the spice mixture on it. Best Mediterranean food in Springs! Only thing they are missing is spanakopita.
Jack Quinn's is great Most of the time. The food is pretty consistently good. The Sunday brunch there is the best! I used to go every week for the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz, but got frustrated with the sound quality of the speakers (only hearing every 3rd word during a quiz is annoying) and stopped going. I like their live music, but its always too loud for the space they are in. If they get the speaker system fixed they would definitely be a 5 star place.
I worked next door to Nemo's and was in there all the time. They have great drinks, and are willing to make things that aren't on the menu. All of the food there is delicious! Breakfast burritos, muffins and scones (made fresh every morning), croissant sandwiches, and salads. A little pricey but definitely worth it. The owner, Tracy, always remembers me and asks how I am doing. She is wonderful! Some of her staff is a bit forgetful and don't seem like they want to be there, but if you catch Tracy everything will be amazing.
We enjoyed Firehouse a great deal, especially the brisket. It's worth a try. http://oinkety.com/?p=2112
