The curry chicken salad sandwich and the Reuben are also mighty mighty tasty!
I was never a big fan of chimichangas, the server (Ruben) suggested one & it was fabulous. The deep fried tortilla was crispy and the flavor was awesome. The chicken tasted just like the one my mother makes. I have been there 4 times. My kids love the food. The Red and Green Chile are authentic Mexican dishes, they are full of flavor and it shows how much effort they put into cooking a great home made meal. The presentation of the dishes are beautiful, we had the chicken flautas appetizer and it came with the vibrant colors of the Mexican flag. You will not be disappointed, and their variety of margaritas is amazing. They have authentic margaritas that you will not find anywhere else.
First off I'd have to disagree with "livemusiclover" us Dj's at the Parrot are far from cheap and the worthless tripe that you refer to is not only years of experience, talent, and knowledge that the Dj's put into their sets, but also is what that downtown crowd on Fri & Sat nights come out to dance to. I've been the Resident Dj there for 3 years and check this out.... I also love live music - I've Dj'ed with several local bands such as Sanquine Addiction, ITUS, and others I love live music - the problem is a combo of different things - And we have tryed several things but it really comes down to the bands are not pulling the crowds like they use to. As sucky as that is to say but thats just what is going on. As far as the comment on our kitchen that has long since been any issues - We have a pimpin full Lunch and Dinner menu. I saw that last post and just had to say something to respond back to "livemusiclover" and to his comments on Thirsty Parrots Dj's - I am Dj Chris Diablo and I for one just the same as my counter part Dj Brandon Lee are Thirsty Parrot's Resident Dj's and we both spend alot of time and energy on our sets and our ability to remix cross genres (MASH-UP). Dj's such as ourself are just as much Live Music as a band is. I've been the Main Stage Resident Dj for the last 4 yrs. for "The South Park Music Tour" held in South Park/Fairplay, CO which is 3days-8stages-80bands and in Aug. for the upcoming "THC Music Festival" held in Alma, CO which is 3days-5stages-40bands - My point is I play with alot of different bands and what all of us are in it for the creation of music and the love for music - It just shows some peoples short-kut to thinking instead of opening their eyes and ears and seeing and hearing the artform that is djing. And as far as going downhill fast and we won't survive the summer of 2010 - Come check us out Every Fri- We got Dj Brandon Lee Downstairs mixing his Original Mash-ups along with every thing else....And Upstairs it's "The Dj Chris Diablo Show" W/ Me mixing years of my Original Mash-ups remixing all genres from all era's.......Then Every Sat - We Have Me Downstairs - mixing all genres and ALWAYS a BAND Upstairs......But come early if you want a table or a booth because it always ends up standing room only!!!!! Dj Chris Diablo
P.S. This was the first time I saw the second comment "ddiggler" thank you I love the positive feedback and support!!!
We were in on a Friday night; the place was bustling and the service was friendly and fast. The food was all good and, as the owner told us, it wasn't just one sort of sauce on five different items - everything was different. We'll go back again and try different dishes. The flavors were complex and different from Indian food - you shouldn't approach this restaurant with Indian food in mind, but of course some of the ingredients are similar.
I love it but quit ordering due to very slow delivery times and always getting cold pizza... it's just too expensive for that and I only live 5 blocks away... sad loss
My honey and I went last Friday night to celebrate our anniversary. The Veal Tuscano and Chicken Marsala were superb. The service, however, left a lot to be desired. Our server was harried and not very attentive. We felt like we were on a production line.
My birthday cake was decorated perfectly! However, the inside of the cake and icing (carrot cake) left a little to be desired. It was quite dry, and the frosting layers were not up to the quality i expected. However, I would still recommend them.....maybe just not that flavor. Also, the price was great.....$40 to feed 30+ people!
this is not in Briargate - it's in Rockrimmon. Very good food and wine - great lunch and dinner specials (prices) - pretty good service - depends on the waiter of course. Great local place.
I recently paid a visit to the Firehouse annex out in Black Forest. Located in the back room of a little grocery store, it has exactly 3 tables and a limited menu consisting of the basics. I ordered a plate of brisket and pulled pork. It was wonderful. Juicy, served without any sauce. You pick up a squeeze bottle of your choosing and can put on as much or little as you want. Sides were good too. There is no table service, just go to the counter and order your food. Got get your own damn drink and sit down and eat some very good BBQ.
Dropped in there April 10th to support the Bikers Against Child Abuse party. The band rocked from 1 to 7, all of the people were friendly, and the place was a blast.
I've been to this restaurant quite a few times and have had great experiences every time! It's a small local spot that serves up some great italian flavor in every dish. Everything tastes very fresh and the portions are a very decent size. I also love their Bella salad with a great raspberry vinaigrette!
I have lived in Korea and am impressed with the authentic quality of their food, although the restaurant seems to be divided into a "Korean side" and an "American side". The Korean Bulgogi Bbque is a consistent favorite of mine. I tried to engage the Korean staff by greeting them in their own language and was ignored - smiles were superficial and not the most attentive. But the food makes up for it and I will be back again!
A quiet, gentle place overlooking Colorado Ave. with plenty of corners to disappear into with a book or your thoughts. Unassuming atmosphere, good selection of coffees and teas made a cup at a time.
Good pizza, good calzones, both with great toppings options, but the sandwiches are GREAT. Especially the cold turkey sandwich. A fresh tasting sub with "better-than-your-average-sub" bread... crusty on the outside, soft on the inside. Simple. Casual atmosphere, friendly service, inexpensive and family friendly.
Amazing food, service can be slow on the weekends but it is worth the wait. The green chili kicks some heat too. I am not brave enough to handle the red chili yet. Biscuts and Gravey are devine. Love Western Omelet,
I liked it the ppl there are friendly and the fiid was good alittle bright with all the white but good
Love this place! really good reen chili. the staff is always on the spot. i have never waited more than ten minuets for my order. i look foward to going there everytime.
Found it by accident on a real estate buying trip, ended up living here. Having lived for over 50 years in CA and eaten 5-star Mexican food, I give Amandas a 4. Good, but not excellent. Was disappointed when we first went there that there was no carnitas! How can you have a Mexican restaurant without pork? However, the rest of the menu was decent, I'd say 3-stars.
Well, sometines good things happen. Amandas now has carnitas, and decent carnitas at that, my rating is now a 4. If they want a fifth star, they need to begin making their own chips, serve them warm and improve the dipping salsa. prices are reasonable, booze is tasty, good margaritas. Parking on weekends is horrible. Outdoor dining next to the creek a plus, if you can avoid the T-storms.
Love the atmosphere. Very Southern. Food is pretty good. Great drink specials and occasional live music. Shrimp poboys and oysters is what I recommend
Truly outstanding Pizza...very fresh ingredients. You'll pay about the same price as you do for the chemical corporate pie brought to your door. You know the one with the cardboard under it to soak up the grease....the one that will cause by-pass surgery by age 45. The mozzarella cheese is made on site...the toppings are all top shelf. The staff is excellent. We have already been back several times...same great food and service each time.
