Re: “Back East Bar & Grill

Average place. Noisy. Young, drinking crowd.

Re: “The Blue Star

Lounge staff and atmosphere were terrific as were the mixed drinks we got from the bar. Too bad I can't say the same about the "fancy" Dining room staff. Both menus are wonderful and the wine selection is second to none. Not so sure I like that the menu in the Dining room changes so frequently. But their desserts are to die for.

Re: “Gasoline Alley

bar staff is terrible, poor selection of drinks. I asked several of the girls there for a Blue Hawaiian and all I got was a blank stare. Drink somewhere else and then enjoy your buzz on the rooftop patio.

Re: “Gasoline Alley

Great time overall. Good to finally have a decent roof-top patio in C-Springs. Friendly and attractive bar staff, but it stops there. Sadly, they aren't exactly trained professionals, which is unfortunate as it holds the establishment back from becoming a truly good bar. Perhaps a few more months for them to learn the job.

Another area which could use some help is in the choice of drinks. The selection of beers is frankly terrible. Just the typical Coors/Budweiser/Corona with Blue Moon thrown in as an afterthought. Being able to order something as simple as a mojito is impossible. For this, I put the blame directly on the owners.

Gasoline Alley is another example typical of drinking/eating establishments in Colorado Springs falling just short of standing above the rest - and why this city still falls just short of being a real city: It all just needs a tiny bit of tweaking and attention to detail to become first class. This won't happen until businesses find a balance between profit and customer service.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

I would have given them 5 stars a few weeks ago but then the menu change. I have visited Trinity since the opening and thought the concept and menu worked, once a few kinks were worked out. But now it seems the concept was tweaked and so has my opinion of Trinity. Gone are the stuffers and several vegetarian de-lites (so the wife is not too excited about going there anymore). The new menu is ok and the stuffers have been replaced by a collection of the new food cliche of 'sliders'. These small 'sandwiches' lack the excitement of their former selves. My buffalo slider with carmelized onions sounded great but the 3 little charred 'meat patties' were tasteless and dry, needless to say my friend was not inspired by the BLT sliders. He had the original sandwich from the menu 2 weeks prior and claimed it was the "the best blt ever!". At least they still have the beer selection.. Change is not always good, especially these changes..
