Re: “Rancho Alegre/La Hacienda

Superb food and friendly service. I like that they have entrees that are authentic Mexican but not the usual burrito/taco/enchilada fare that's everywhere else. Try the pollo con arroz (chicken and rice), or any of the seafood offerings. Margaritas are fine but nothing to write home about; the usual selection of Mexican beers.

Re: “Briargate Wellness Center

Joe and Mike are both friendly and helpful. Varied product line with several strains and good assortment of edibles as well as topical cream. Friendly upscale atmosphere and convenient parking.

Re: “Luisa Graff Jewelers

We, my husband and I, love Luisa Graff Jewelers. They certainly treated us with respect. We felt like we were the only people in the store. We felt "loved". We look forward to her new store. We will be in line to be one of her first customers in her new store!

Re: “Colorado Mountain Brewery

Fritz sounds like hes upset about Andy leaving phantom or something. A salad with one green? I'm calling BS on that one! I absolutely love the grilled salmon salad. Always done right. I've had positive experiences each time Ive eaten here, so it's worth checking out.

Re: “The Blue Star

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.

Re: “Saigon Springs

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.

Re: “Tomo Sushi

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.

Re: “Robin Hood Inn

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

Re: “Adam's Mountain CafĂ©

Great, unique food with many vegetarian/vegan options. Live music is pretty good. The patio in the summer is the best.
