Re: “Great Wall Seafood Buffet

Terrible!! My family and I ate there two days ago and the food was old and dry. Everything was cold and and rubbery. The day after we dined there, my daughter and I got sick.

Re: “Red Rock Lounge

We stopped in here New Years Eve to have a couple beers. The regulars are not at all friendly and are in fact quite hostile to outsiders. We played a game of darts and a loudmouthed regular wanted to fight us over it. When we didn't fall for his threats, he harassed us non stop as we played. Go there only if you want to get into a fight with a regular. There are bars in town with much cooler clientele.

Re: “Best Budz

Sorry, but I wasn't impressed at all with this facility. Pricing doesn't reflect the quality and I didn't feel the people working wanted my business, or didn't care if I bought from them or not. I won't be back. Bad 1st impression, lasting impression.

Re: “KOAA-TV NBC 5

This is the absolute worst station in the Pikes Peak area. Horrific affiliation with the worst broadcast news organization (NBC)- check. Ignoring the wildfire that threatened a good part of the Springs last summer while showing their Pueblo bias- check. Paying off the Gazette and various community events in order to claim Springs local status- check. Hopefully Springs viewers will wake up and realize that 11, 13, and even 21 are better than this waste of television space.

Re: “Altitude Organic Medicine

I was with AOM from the beginning of their business when they were located on Colorado Ave. We were like family, and then the owners moved to a larger, more prosperous business, and everything changed. They have secretaries and front to be high-end. I miss the guys so much but you can't do much when people decide to be more big-business than people oriented. Do not shop here folks, you are a $$ in their eyes. The owners, middle-men, secretaries, etc. DO NOT SHOP HERE.
Like I said, I miss the boys dearly, but I would hate to go to them in an emergency. I have shopped with them for three years, and they refuse to recognize my face- (it is up to them to serve to you or not). Very, very sad with this outcome, and will miss Luke, Billy and Aaron dearly. Wish the feeling was mutual, but money changes people.
I used to drop 100-130 dollars every two weeks for a few years in spite of driving 20+ miles/visit, but it certainly wasn't their problem and let me know.

Re: “The Hemp Center

My first trip to this dispensary SEEMED like a nice experience. My boyfriend and I are both patients and went in together. I purchased the product on sale and after I went to work my boyfriend returned to buy additional product. He was told that we received the deal that they offered to every patient (member or not) as a COUPLE and he could not be sold anything else at a sale price.
This is ILLEGAL. They will not let people in without a red card, but if you go together they only offer one deal per couple. When I went back to try to rectify the problem the "herbalist" in the front SCREAMED at me to get out after she had already checked me in. They lied and made up several excuses before they decided to sell my boyfriend the half-ounce instead of us needing to call the police for being denied treatment after already being checked into the facility and threatened. Ironically, they act like they are compassionate and sell Buddhist t-shirts, but they are truly bad people with machine-trimmed bud that is airy and stemmy. They may seem like they have decent prices but they quickly change them and will not be provided to two patients individually if they are a couple.

Re: “Edelweiss German Restaurant

The food might have been alright if it wasn't for the bug crawling through it. Tried to complain and the female manager/owner yelled and me and was incredibly rude. I wont ever set foot in that place again.

Re: “King's Chef Diner - Bijou

Heard good things about King's Chef and decided to pay a visit the other night. Had a burrito that was insanely bad. Overcooked eggs, burnt potatoes and spongy oily meat. It was truly fucking disgusting. 2 bites was all I could take. I told the waitress how bad it was and she "well, that's too fucking bad, huh?" Really? This is how staff speaks to customers?? This place truly does suck. It sucks in the worst way and I will never be back. Definitely NOT RECOMMENDED.

Re: “English Dockside

the best seafood in town is at Bonefish...the menu on this place's bad website isn't even tempting...and no lobster roll is listed.

Who wrote this review? Did they even go to the restaurant?

Re: “Rancho Alegre/La Hacienda

Absolutely terrible, ordered tacos and quesadillas over the phone, waiter said "see you in 5 minutes" and hung up without giving me my total. Got there and my food was already waiting on the counter, staff seemed friendly enough I even left a 25% tip. got home (6-7 mins later) tacos were so soggy that they fell apart, looked like they were reheated in microwave, and tasted horrible, and not only were the quesadillas soggy, I asked for plain and they gave me regular, and chicken was lowest grade I've ever seen, similar to the tasteless pink chunks you get in off brand chicken noodle soup. We tried to eat it, but it tasted too bad. Taco bell is 10 times better than this garbage and that is saying a lot.

AWFUL! The service was terrible, our server was more concerned with finding a cell phone charger and chatting with other servers than doing her job. We never received the cornbread we wanted as they were out of it (at 5 on a Friday) and then were given terrible hush puppies as a replacement that we did not want. The sausage platter was WAY too spicy, I'm sure that was to hid the tough, overly fatty sausage. The pulled pork was tasteless, very fatty and gritty, and cold. Both my husband and I had food poisoning from eating there. I have found that others had the same experience. I don't know how anyone feels they are having a good experience here unless you are drunk when you arrive. (You'd have to be drunk before you arrive as the server will NEVER come back to see if you want another drink once you've ordered one.)

Re: “Glacier Homemade Ice Cream & Gelato

This place is the last place I would go for ice cream. Everything behind the glass counter looks past it's expiration date.

That's not as bad as the flavors...they mix two good flavors, like butter pecan with Oreo cookies...yuk.

It costs an extra dollar to put your four dollar single scoop into a cone instead of a cup with a small plastic spoon.

Interestingly, if you watch folks coming in, more folks check the scene and leave without ordering, than actually order and leave with a cup or come.

Re: “Briargate YMCA

This Y is in a nice area of town. Don't let this fool you, the place is overrun with gangster kids and skaters from the nearby skate park. I was never concerned about that until my locker was broken into, during a busy time on a Tuesday. No security, nothing done about it. Management was not surprised in the least, and stated so. I guess you are completely on your own here. If you have young children you think are being supervised, you might want to think again. This is an unsafe place pretending to be a safe place for families.

Re: “India Palace

My family and I used to love eating here regularly for the past 10 years under several new owners, love the food, however the most recent new owners were EXTREMELY disrespectful and rude to me and my entire family. We are RETIRED military, therefore did not get the 10% off, but pulled out our cell phone to check in on facebook for the 10% discount instead...not only did we not get the 10% discount, but one of the new owners said we were annoying him! Very unprofessional....will NOT be eating here again until new owners take over this place.

Re: “Shovelhead Saloon

I must say the place has taken a turn for the worst. Don't rely on my comments though, I am not afraid to be wrong.
