What a horrible place! The people that work there are rude the customers are worse! You couldn't pay me to go back in there again. Dirty, trashy and just plain gross!
I WOULD RATE THIS PLACE TRIPLE ZERO, UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE TO LEAVE A ONE STAR AND IT HURTS. RUDE, NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. THEY ACT AS IF THEY ARE DOING YOU A FAVOR. HOGS WOULDN'T EVEN EAT THAT FOOD. IF YOU ENJOY BURN SOGGY SOUR FRIES, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. NOW I KNOW WHY THE PLACE IS ALWAYS EMPTY. THE OWNER IS A HOLE TOO. BAD ENERGY IN THAT PLACE, VERY NEGATIVE.GREAT PLACE TO GO UTE INN (WOODLAND PARK), AWESOME, FRIENDLY OWNER & EMPLOYEES, ALSO RECOMMEND THE SILVER TONGUE DEVIL SALOON (GREEN MOUNTAIN FALLS).
I visited this establishment for the firt time on June 4, 2011 with two friends. It was after the wine fest and we wanted to sit, have some drinks, and have some food. One of the persons with us was the DD, so she ordered water. My friend and I recieved our drinks right away, but the water for the DD took 20 minutes. I found the bartender and asked him for the water, explaining it had taken 20 minutes. When the water came it was brown and dirty. My friend (not the DD) asked the bartender for another water, explaining the one he sent was dirty. At that time he pointed at me and said I was "hasseling him" already about the water and refused to replace it. When I asked for the owner he falsely claimed to be the owner (I found out by calling later) and told me to leave "his " bar. He even went so far as to call the police to make me leave, though I was waiting for the DD to come back from the restroom. When I called later to find out who the owner was he answered the first time and told me he wouldn't get into trouble because his mom owned the bar. IDK if mom wants her business run like that, but if this is any indication of how it is going to be run, then I and my associates will frequent another establishment. Love Manitou, very much dislike the Keg. I can't rate the food or value because I was told to leave before it came.
I witnessed a disturbing event last night as we were being ushered off the patio. I saw the entire exchange from start to end. 1 of the bouncers told a drunk guy he was going to f* the drunk guys wife, clearly trying to incite a fight. I found myself telling their bouncer to stop. Not a way to run a professional establishment. Since I'm usually the DD, be assured that I am making no plans for a trip to Copperhead Road again. I usually side with the law and order side of any argument, thinking that the bar patron did something to provoke getting thrown out, but there was no valid reason for this crappy treatment.
My advice: If your looking to get insulted, your butt kicked and thrown in jail for fighting, go here. Otherwise, there are several other clubs in this town you can go to to have a good time.
Some of the worst BBQ I have ever had and I know my BBQ. The brisket tasted like it was broiled in an over, the ribs were fatty and I'm not sure what the sausage was made from. The side dishes consisted of baked bean ( tasted like they came from a can) and potato salad (absolutely no flavor what so ever. The only good things I have to say was the portions were large and the service was good.
Not worth the money! I came here for a girls'-night-out and we were seated by the piano; all we could focus on was the "colorful" language we heard coming from the kitchen. The food and drinks were mediocre at best, and the servers were obviously overwhelmed. Also, after being open for almost a year, you would expect this place to have some sort of sign, but this is not the case. To top it off, as I was leaving, I passed by the side-door and had who I believe was the yeller with colorful language from the kitchen tell me to "have a good evening" as he sat in a sweaty, dirty t-shirt and shorts and smoked a cigarette. I would expect this sort of behavior and attire from a fast food restaurant, not an upscale jazz club. I absolutely advise against going here!
Has anyone heard about the assult the staff bouncers pulled on some customers and they bad thing they did to the Texas couple Sat Feb19th 2011? Its awful..They totally asult this couple and..It is sad..They injured a guy until he had to go to the Er and they were visiting from TX on a Business trip..WOW!!The bouncers and the door guys were all involved..They hit the little girl that was with the guy that had his knees injured..wrong wrong wrong..I will never go there until they all get fired...Wrong...The video should be found and put on youtube..This is huge...
They act like they like you then just kick you out because you some the owner doesnt like. I would say never go in there unless you have money to blow on over priced drinks.
Aspen auto clinic is a total ripoff. My daughter went to Aspen on Mark Dabling blvd. for a front end alignment. They told her correctly that she needed a new steering knuckle, however this is the only thing they got correct. They lied to her, stating that she needed also a new hub bearing, camber bolt, bearing seal, when in fact this all is one unit that comes with the steering knuckle.
They quoted her $1005.51 for a new or $777.34 for a used steering knuckle. She knew something was up as this was a ridiculous price. She went to another shop in town and the total cost was $230.45, including the front-end alignment. Aspen had the audacity to charge her $27 for the alignment test when she told them she would forgo the repair.
She spent a fraction of the cost and her car is now driving very nicely. Again, do NOT take your car to Aspen auto clinic unless you want to be chargee 4 times the actual cost of repairs.
Great atmosphere and friendly service, but really overpriced, bland food.
ok the drinks are way over priced i payed 8 bucks for a drink i usually pay 4 at other down town bars also i used my debit card and the pinged my account for 50 dollars and left it pending for 6 days still pending as i said i only bought one drink for 8 bucks and they have a pending balance in my bank account for 50 that is insane
The Ritz is only a disappointing shadow of its former self. It's just sad to be there now. The food has gone downhill, as has the service. Not even a decent bloody mary. Time to go elsewhere.
The first time I went there the food, drinks and service were amazing. That was over a year ago and since then it has gone progressively downhill. The waitresses get orders wrong and bring cold food. You are lucky if you see one of the waitresses every hour or so. I am not going back again.
WARNING!!!! Gasoline Ally practices identity theft!!!!!!
I went here and spent about $40 on drinks. When I payed with a credit card they asked to see my driver's licence and wrote down all my personal information on the credit card receipt along with my credit card number. The next day my crdit card company was calling me with a questionable charge on my card for $1000 dollars!!! Do not go to this place unless you want to be robed
Ritz Downtown - Blah. My chicken sandwich was significantly overcooked. My wife ordered the chicken and shrimp pasta. They forget to put in the shrimp! The waitress offered to give us a to go box with shrimp in it to make up for it. WTF!. No offer to reduce the bill for skipping the shrimp. Move on to a better restaurant folks!
The last time some friends and I went here the serves was the worst! We sat down and waited for a wait person. The place wasn’t very crowded. We sat and waited and waited. Finally I got up and ordered drinks at the bar. Two of the people I was with got up and went across the street and ate at Jimmy John’s. I asked a waiter walking by for help and he said it wasn’t his area. Finally a women came by to wait on us, my friend said that would be nice because we had been waiting for some time. She said that wasn’t possible! ? Our other friends returned from Jimmy John’s just as we were given menus. We ordered and wait a while for our food. We were not offered another drink. I asked to talk to the manager and was told by the first waiter he was busy. We paid and walked out the front door. We were than told by someone else that the manager was standing out front. I told him of our experience, to which he said that we should of talked to him. He then told me that someone had said that I had yield at one of the waitress, which is pure fiction, and if I had why didn’t he intervene at that point? My friends and I are all in our 40’s and 50’s, one is an ex police officer. I have enjoyed many and evening at Quinns, and have played music there before. I and my friends will not be coming back!
5 friends and I picked Trinity to celebrate an upcoming event. We arrived by 6:30 and ended up on the couches in the back. At 8:45 she let us know it was last call, we asked for a few waters and the bill. As she drops off the bill the very drunk owner tells us we are closing, you have to go. We said, yes, we are just paying our bill. He told us we had 10 minutes. Less than five minutes later he comes back and says, get up now. Get up. Leave. We said we were just waiting for the credit cards, we would gladly leave when we get those back. He said to wait out front. We denied that request and decided to wait right where we were . We asked him why we were being kicked out as the restaurant was still 1/3 full with patrons. He said we offended him but refused to tell us how. How can we possibly have offended him? Before that point, he had not even come to the back where we were sitting. Six respectable, 30-45 year old moms, we had all gotten together earlier that day....at the elementary school PTO meeting. Yeah, clearly we "offended" him.
Stay away from Trinity Brewing and the owner with the dreadlocked beard, he admitted his is a jacka** when he drinks. It is true. We have seen it. Can't wait until the next PTO meeting!
I have to say that my recent visit was not my first but was the worst. Apparently management has changed recently and not for the better. The food was not what the menu had stated and the kid working the kitchen that day didn't even pay attention to what was on a patty melt when he sent it out without cheese. The service was horrible as the cocktail waitresses ignored me as I sat at my table with an empty bottle as they worked around me. It might have been understandable had it been busy but there might have been 20 people in the whole bar. My boyfriend had similar luck at the bar as the two guys bartending just ignored his cash in hand for 10 minutes. Back in the day I would have said check this place out, but right now I am telling you that you money is better spent at a place where they want your business because the staff at Hondo's apparently does not.
Service is horrible!!!
The staff is inattentive and dismissive. It's painfully obvious they they are easily overcome by events. The bartender is overly concerned with catering to female patrons rather than his actual job. The acoustics in the place are terrible and it's a shame because the bands are great. The music is almost drowned out by people chatting away. Most of this is attributed to the fact that the place is in the garage of the owners other business which the staff freely admits, like its a good thing. The food is way overrated and over priced as well as the drinks. The entire place has an air of extreme pretentiousness as the staff is overly concerned with local elites (some Army General's wife) that frequent the place while in turn neglecting other customers. I recommend with conditions namely eat before you go, don't expect prompt service and sit outside as the indoor acoustics are almost unbearable.
The only thing good about this place is Taco Tuesday and happy hour. The Margarita's aren't that great either especially after having a Tivo from Jorge's.
