Re: “Bingo Burger

After walking by several times, I decided
to give Bingo Burger a chance. I live downtown. I chose to "build my own" and asked for a cheeseburger with fried/grilled onions. I was told by Sarah that they had "glazed onions" which are pre made. I'm not familiar with "glazed onions" and I don't think it sounds very appetizing, since it is pre made. I decided to wait until they weren't busy, as a courtesy, and went in to talk to the manager the following day. He also told me that they would not grill my onions. I happen to believe that the customer is always right. I'm from the East Coast and there is no hesitation to accommodate a customer who wants grilled onions on their cheeseburger. If I'm not permitted to have a burger the way I ordered it, I'm not going back. It's a shame too, because it seemed like a nice place. I'll sooner go to Jack Quinn's for the fish and chips. Bingo, feel free to contact me and make this right. If you make it right, I will remove this post, if possible. 719-480-1250 Christian Romansky

Re: “Rocks Sports Bar & Grill

First time in, i don't know how the drinks are because i was never served. The band sounded good, but after taking a seat at the bar, the staff walked past me twice without so much as an acknowledgement, let alone asking what i wanted to drink. The manager in guessing then took a seat out from behind the bar next to I'm assuming a regular / friend, with his back to me, and proeeded to watch the band. I more than likely won't be returning. Went to finish line, and was served within 3 minutes.

Re: “Bernie's Place

They bullied a bartender who been there for over 15 years for filing a complaint with the State of Colorado over employment practices. The owner was to have said the bartender was "too old". The State said the bar did in fact engage in retaliation which is illegal after someone files a complaint. The bartender was bullied then fired after 6 months for a bogus "infraction".
Avoid this place unless you support discrimination in employment. Bernie would never have stood for that behavior but he passed away and his ex-wife took over. She is none too bright obviously.

Re: “Mill Outlet Fabric Shop

The employees are very sweet and knowledgeable and they do have a few items that unfortunately other stores do not. However, a large percentage have been there for years (the bolt ends are dated) and the owner is completely condescending and degrading to both customers and employees. He also saves an uncomfortable amount of personal information for who knows what..... A fabric store should be warm friendly and creative and while I prefer to support local businesses, his is one I will not!!!!!

Re: “Aspen Auto Clinic - Tutt Blvd.

This article is wrong, and no research was done. The Independent is brown nosing an advertiser. The above review has to be a fluke. I'm disappointed the Independent would tout them as reliable, without doing any research (just google "Denver, news, hidden camera, Aspen auto clinic". We've taken cars there twice, and both times were a scam. One time they stripped our oil pan screw and then tried to say it was like that. It never leaked until after that point. They wanted to charges us around 250$ for a new oil pan, and another mechanic re-threaded the hole for 120$. They caused it. Another issue, they wanted 800$ to replace the radiator, actual cost 420$. Another issue, we told them something was wrong with the right front axle joint, they agreed, wanted to fix it. Never was an issue, 3 mechanics have all cleared it since. This is a bad business. Beware, do some homework..

Re: “Maggie's Farm - Manitou

Maggies in Manitou sort of gives you the feeling like you are waiting to be called for the results of your VD test.
The whole place feels like a shameful place where you are doing something shameful. BLECHH.All sort of lot lizards just outside too. There is a new rec shop in Manitou that is DA BOMB- GO there.They looked at everything Maggies was doing and DID THE OPPOSITE!

Re: “Maggie's Farm - Manitou

Reminds me of being arrested, the people in the sales room or pushy rude and came across as all they cared about was getting your money pushing you out the door. My brother was here from out of state and I wanted him to see what it was like going to a medical marijuana shop. I found myself afterwards telling him this is nothing nothing like any of the other shops I have ever went to. I will never walk through that door again or any other Maggies farms !

Re: “Yarn Outlet

The selection is wonderful, the yarn is everything from fine to bulky, acrylic to mohair, the store smells like a mildew basement but I can even call that character...

But the help, has much to be desired. I've been here a few times and every time it has been rude, seemed more worried about their precious stash than running a business, and after my last experience I decided I would happily pay a little more for the same thing for a smile and a respectful employee who was willing to help me.

I picked out several skeins of alpaca yarn, went to pay and their machine was not reading my card (I had used it not 5 minutes earlier to get gas and lunch) and I suggested typing in the number. She glared at me and said no that charges me when your card comes back declined and I'm guessing it will having this many problems reading it and then I'm out 2$. She then proceeded to tell me where an ATM is and how I need to go get cash and bring it back to purchase because she doesn't have time to play games with my card. (I've had this happen twice out of the 4 times I decided to grin and bear the help. First time I obliged and went and got cash not having time to go somewhere else)

This last time I said thanks but I will take my business elsewhere or order my yarn needs off line.

Sometimes it's worth it to put your customers first knowing you will reap the rewards of a returning happy customer. Good customer service reaping positive Word of mouth is key to growing mom and pop shops these days especially when there's "mega buy it all here stores" for everything on every other corner.

Re: “Treasure Shoppe

If there was a way to leave a zero star rating I would. They are extremely over priced, I have seen items in the store in horrible condition and not even cleaned being priced for what you can find it brand new at a store. They always switch locations and change the business name as soon as enough people realize they are being ripped off, the store has been the bargain bin and willies treasures previously. They dont offer refunds or anything but yet they dont check whether their items even work or not and quite frequently they dont work and you are stuck with what you bought not working. If you are considering being a vendor and selling things through their store I encourage you to reconsider. The owners wilma and sandra lynch feel that because they own the building they are entitled to take what they want from you. If you do become a vendor at this location I suggest keeping a constant inventory of your things to make sure everything that should be there is still there.

Re: “Marisol Therapeutics

I was sitting on there couch waiting to be seen when a fellow customer sits next to me and states that there is a guy outside the building who is a violent sexual offender,the the guy that is sitting on the opposite couch stated how much he hates those types ......i agree with him at this point..........he talks about what he would to him....i still agree then..... he talks about how he used to be a enforcer for gang that would knock on someones door if he had to......im wondering why this guy that is so OUTSPOKEN yet he will not deal with this violent sexual offender who is right outside the building and he even know's the hotel the sexual offender is staying at...........this guy then starts saying how he cant do anything because it would be considering a hate crime (i think he said that because he knew i was starting to question his character/motive and i bet he talked about me after i left the room)........the counter girl did not like this and has started to spread rumours,Can someone please explain to her how REDFLAG"S work ,Please read the rest of the reviews and decide for yourself if you want to try marisol's

Re: “Maggie's Farm - E. Fillmore

your Manitou Springs Rec Location leaves so much to be desired.
It feels like you are in there to do something secret and almost shameful.THe budtenders are not very enthusiastic and inventory is a roll of the dice for what is a bit of a drive for some folks.I had to use this facility until I could get my residency established and get my mmj card. Glad that is over-VERY EXPENSIVE as well.Glad to see a real rec shop and some healthy competition open up too.
