Re: “Thunder & Buttons II

Decided to stop and try the food here when we noticed the specials board while strolling through Old Colorado City - VERY glad we did! They had a lot more than just burgers and bar food. We had the Lettice Wraps as an appetizer and tried a couple of the daily specials - I had Chicken Marsala and the wife had the Sloppy Buffalo. Everything tasted great. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with very good service. Loved the vintage NFL helmets around the bar - will definitely be back for football season also!!

Re: “Mirch Masala

Simply the best Indian food I've ever eaten. The tiki masala chicken is so incredible I've actually had dreams about it. The kheer pudding and the mango dessert are some of th bed flavors I've enjoyed. The format of the buffet is very pragmatic. Go at lunch, that's the best deal. Marvelous experience

Re: “Nawlins BarBQ and Seafood

We stopped in this afternoon. The prices were more than fair as anyone who has ever eaten cajun cooking in the southeast would know. Most sandwiches and po'boys were $8.99 and you could choose whichever side you wanted to go with them. The food was delicious, arrived quickly, and the service was excellent. The waitress placed silverware wrapped in cloth napkins on the table when she seated us. Drinks were on the table within three minutes and the waitress quickly returned with a basket with a half dozen bottles of condiments. Our food was out in less than 10 minutes. The portions were large and were served on heavy earthenware dishes.

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

I absolutely LOVE this place. The owners are very open, loving and caring. We hold our meditations upstairs and we rent the place to have a Metaphysical Meet and Greet. I bring my 3 year old autistic nephew and they are very accommodating for him. A wonderful atmosphere, a peaceful outside table, and great food and drinks.

Re: “Gray's Coors Tavern

I love the sloppers! Definitely worth the drive from Colorado Springs. The staff makes you feel like a local. Fun, fun, fun.

Re: “Sahara Café

Eat there atleast 1-2 times a week. The beef platter with pita bread and humas is absolutely wonderful. I go in there by myself with my daughter and I will sit there for atleast a full hour eating and enjoying their wonderful sage tea, both hot and cold!

Defiantly the best place in Colorado Springs/Manitou.

Re: “Meadow Muffins

We have been regular patrons of Meadow Muffins for almost 3 years now and it stands out as the most enjoyable, high class, fun, entertaining and SAFE bar in old colorado city. The menu has changed and its a great place to eat, meet friends, enjoy reasonably priced drinks. I like that there are several bouncers around to keep the trouble makers out, unlike the competiting bar across the street that allows the usual fights inside and outside their business with no concern for the innocent regular customers. Meadow Muffins will always be our favorite place and our old friends and new one's to come in the years to come. The owner's are very welcoming and encourage any concerns you may have, which there are none. Lets help spread the word and everyone meet for the nightly entertainment...

Re: “Great Wall Seafood Buffet

Check the dates on the other reviews, 2+ years old. There is new management and this now the best Chinese restaurant in town - bar none (I've tried them all)! Chinese, Sushi and even Mongolian Bar-B-Q. They are just completing a complete remodel and the place is bright shiny and all new! A MUST for anyone who loves Chinese in all its flavors.

Re: “Joey's Pizza

Great NY style pizza from the crust to the toppings, all are a step above the other NY Pizza joints such as Leon Gessi or B. brothers. When they get busy, orders can take longer than normal but it's well worth the wait. If something is not right with your order, Joey is quick to make it right. It is my favorite pizza shop. The calzones, wings, subs and garlic knots are excellent as well. I definitely recommend them.

Re: “Buttercup's Frozen Yogurt

Wonderful! I've been to pretty much every yogurt place in the springs. This one really stands out. Not only is the yogurt wonderful, but the place itself is beautiful. It is very unique which was a complete surprise. It is designed sleek and modern, has wifi, beautiful brushed metal tables, a sitting area with flatscreen, leather couches and is really a nice place to relax. At the same time its incredibly friendly and inviting, and I was surprised to find the prices were the same as all the other places. It also is impeccably clean, has a great fruit bar, and the owners are incredibly friendly. Truly standout all around.
