Re: “Kelly O'Brians Sports Bar & Grill

Working class and military trash? Well that covers about everyone. That customer must be independently wealthy or unemployed. I've been a customer since 1999, and be never had any problem with the staff or customers.

Re: “Phat Hatties Smokehouse BBQ

Re: “P.B. & Jellies New York Deli

If you get to Chapel Hills Mall in Colorado Springs, and you find yourself in need of sustenance, you might try PB & Jellies in the food court. The ambience is... Well it's the mall. But the food is terrific. I had a Reuben sandwich and I've got to say, it was the best Reuben sandwich I've ever had.

Re: “The Famous

Looking for grass-fed and finished beef, preferably. Also attractive is locally produced meats, not feedlot animals, hormone and antibiotic free.

Re: “The Famous

Lalahartma What kind of cattle do you find attractive these days? Or is this just another trendy thing?

Re: “Cafe 225 Coffee Shop and Venue

new, clean, and warm inside. I ordered a vanilla latte which was steamed by the barista, not a machine, which I prefer. They have a conference room for rent which I plan to use for casual meetings with new clients. I would recommend this cafe to friends.

Re: “The Famous

They really need to update their menu. Grain-fed beef is not very attractive these days.

Re: “Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q

Long waits. Pick up your beer as you go in and it will be warm by the time you get your food. Except for the brisket or pork sandwiches, everything is very salty. The meats, when good are great, but not always consistent. The sauces are rather tasteless...bring your own hot sauce to add some kick.

Re: “Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q

Great food and atmosphere. The meats are tender and true to expectations of Texas Smoked BBQ.

Re: “Schnitzel Fritz

Wahoo - the paper plates are gone. I've had both the schnitzel ($8.99) and the rouladen ($8.99) there recently and found them both to be good. Cannot go to four stars though, as I really wanted a draft beer to go along with them.

Re: “Fifty Fifty Coffee House

I had lunch at Fifty Fifty Coffee House last month. The Pressed Turkey Sandwich was delicious and the Fifty Fifty Iced Coffee is addictive (I had 2). The service was also great, and I loved the atmosphere. I will be back.

Re: “Bourbon Brothers Southern Kitchen

The mac n cheese that I got was absolutely amazing. Its got andouille sausage and red peppers in it and the portion size was definitely healthy. We got our food relatively fast although the place was only about 3/4 full because we were between lunch and dinner. Also the cornbread was just like momma cooked it... if my momma made cornbread that is. It was pretty good regardless.

Re: “The Famous

I ate at the Famous last week...and finally have my strength back enough from being sick to say it was the absolute worst meal I have ever eaten out. What in the meal made me sick...I don't know, but it was all tough, tasteless, cold, and just bad.

The meat was the worst part...try the Texas Road House if you want a juicy, hot, nicely charred steak. The Famous sucks.

Re: “Couture's Bistro

Actually, I recently ate at the Famous...and it just as bad as the Bistro. Really awful...one of the worst meals I have ever eaten out...not a thing was even up to mediocre.

Colorado Springs downtown owes it financial success to competing with MRE's the military eats in the field...so all this crap they serve downtown at these places is good compared to that for the military guys just back from hell...but it is hell for the rest of us.

Re: “Couture's Bistro

My wife and I felt so strongly after last nights meal at this restaurant that we were swindled out of $120.00 I thought I should write a fair review of Couture's to warn others so they wont have the same poor experience by making the mistake of eating dinner at this establishment.
The decor of the restaurant is pretty good, the owner has taken what was a dry cleaners and put a considerable amount of $$ into the remodel resulting in a pleasant atmosphere in a cozy "French" restaurant. Wines are sold by the glass, the wine was the good part of the meal. My wife ordered a glass of Cabernet and I had a light white wine, both were very good. The waitress suggested we try the mussels with a white wine, garlic sauce and french fries on top. I took the bait and ordered....I have had better quality mussels frozen from Safeway. In fact I suspect these were frozen from a supermarket. Small, little meat inside, McDonalds serves better french fries. My wife oredered a "garden fresh" salad I ordered a Cesar. The Garden fresh again seemed like it came out of a bag from a grocery store....lettuce was slightly wilted and the special dressing had little flavor. Keep in mind so far we've racked up over $40.00 for our wine, crappy mussels and salad. My Cesar salad was OK....Cesar is supposed to be made with large romaine lettuce leaves, this was small pieces of standard lettuce head with a 1/2 boiled egg on top and mediocre Cesar dressing. Want a good Cesar - go to the Famous! Finally our main course, I mistakenly ordered the pork loin - $24.00 my wife ordered the "Filet Mignon" - $36.00. They offer risoto as a 3 course for $10.00 per plate, fortunately we didn't waste our money on the risotto, I saw it plated at other tables and it did not look appetizing. My pork loin had some type of cream sauce with it I suppose to try and mask the fact that it was tough and unfavorable. A poor cut of meat....I can make a far better pork loin at home. My wife's filet I don't believe was an actual Filet cut of meat...it could have been was sirloin. It was cut into two halves circles of beef, each about 1/2 inch thick. I suspect it was cut this way to mask the fact it was not filet mignon. It was mediocre at best. For $36.00 we could have had a decent steak at the famous down the street. Final check was $120.00 .......what a rip off. Take my advice, - BEWARE of this place, they serve poor quality food.

Re: “Dogtooth Coffee Company

A really neat place, worth the visit. Plenty of free street parking. Excellent food and coffee, low key, quiet, friendly. A hidden gem in the old north end.

Re: “Springs Orleans

Been there several times now, never had a bad meal. Love the decor. The Kobe Sliders (2 per order) with a mound of wonderful french fries are amazing and a meal for smaller appetites. Our service has always been excellent too. Nice that it's only 2 doors from Kimballs movie house, a great date night experience.
