Re: “English Dockside

We love this place from the PO'Boys to the mother of all hamburgers. We just wish the plates came with more of those SUPER FRESH and GREAT SEASONED french fries.

Re: “Coquette's Bistro and Bakery

I was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy (celiac disease) and it's been kind of a nightmare trying to find a restaurant with appetizing gluten-free fare. Following my first meal at Coquette Creperie, I realized that this gluten allergy business wasn't going to be so bad after all. The food is absolutely delicious and the variety of tastes from crepe to crepe never allow boredom to enter into the equation. The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable and the staff have always been friendly and extremely attentive.

Re: “Coquette's Bistro and Bakery

i was afraid to try a "gluten free" crepe but my partner is very intolerant of the gooey stuff so I gave in...glad I did. kinda magical filling in my bada bing (spicy italian sauce and great sausages) and we even had to try a dessert with fruit filling..a few cocktails later we realized we just didn't want to leave the cool comfort zone. ..who needs gluten anyway

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

Loved eating here when we lived in Mantiou - especially liked the chicken in mole, fish tacos, and chile Colorado. Outdoor patio overlooking the creek is nice when the weather is nice and when you're not seated next to a smoker (1 star reduction for allowing smoking on the patio).

Re: “Conway's Red Top

Really excellent burgers, and you can get HALF of a burger if you're not a big eater. A well run local operation with more than one location IIRC, to include one on Fillmore just west of Union.

Re: “Rico's Café and Wine Bar

The make your own salad choices are superb. I"m not a big fan of the usual boring green stuff that's normally thrown on the table, so this offering makes my day.... try it with grilled chicken, chick peas, roasted almonds and peppers.... sesame seed dressing to top it off.....hmmmmmmm....I actually walk about a mile from my office to get this for lunch about once every other week.

Re: “Billy's Old World Pizza

Billys offers a delicious and bountiful lunch or dinner buffet with a spin from Chicago. They offer homemade pizza, thin and stuffed crust, homemade italian sausage and italian beef and pastas with marinara sauce. The salad bar has numerous choices, I am vegan and break my diet when visiting with my husband, and they are always willing to accommodate special dietary needs. They recently added Chicago Vienna hot dogs to the menu. If you don't like buffets they also offer a full menu. Pack up the car and bring the entire family because everyone is sure to find a delicious choice.

Re: “Papa Murphy's

If you don't like their regular crust - try the DeLite crust. They push it as lower cal and lower carb, but really it should just be called thin n' crispy crust - it's AWESOME! Only complaint is that the pepperoni is just right one time and super-spicy the next. Love the onions - they mix white, green and red onion together.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - Platte

Simply the BEST pizza in Colorado Springs. But some time the pizza is lacking cheese ( 1 out of 3 times).

Re: “Chopsticks

High quality, a good vibe, a comfortable and immaculately clean dining atmosphere. Their Malaysian Chicken is mouth watering!

Re: “PJ's Bistro

We've been to PJ's twice now, and both times we were not disappointed! This is the type of food I grew up eating and loving, cooked by my Hungarian grandma, only better! (sorry, Grandma) Their stuffed cabbage is rich and delicious, the pork cutlet melts in your mouth. I tried the smoked salmon potato pancakes last night and thought I was in heaven. Try the Euro fires with Hungarian goulash ladled over them! YUM! Also, the meatloaf with mushroom gravy and dumplings was absolutely wonderful. I can't wait for family to come visit so I can take them to PJ's!

Re: “Front Range Barbeque

Very good BBQ and I'm not even "into" BBQ. Good portions, interesting recipes for sides, fantastic pies. Four stars only because its location is an old house, which provides ambiance I guess, but also makes it a tad crowded and cramped. But really, the food is very good and service is good also.

Re: “Everest Nepal

This is one restaurant where the buffet is almost as good as ordering off the menu. Whether you have experience with Indian food or don't know if you like it, go for the buffet to try it out. They seem to always have a fully stocked salad bar, tandoori chicken, naan bread, paneer, samosas, and mix up the curries and other veggie dishes. There is also always rice pudding and malpuda (deep fried pancakes in syrup). Find what you love and go back at dinner!
Order a lassi (mango is great!) to end the meal with a sweet Indian smoothie. Friendly, attentive staff, too.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - 8th

Best pizza by far that I've found outside New York. They lose a star for charging $10.50 for a pitcher of Bud light but their pizza rocks and they know how to cook it. They need to send someone over to the downtown location to teach them how to cook a pizza pie.

Re: “BJ's Velvet Freez

Love this old-timey ice cream place... drive up or walk up -- sit outside so your chocolate dipped cone drips on the sidewalk, not in your car. Try a thick butterscotch malt or shake... they way they were meant to be made. This place is fresh out of 1960 and just as good. Reasonable prices and no-nonsense staff. And, hey, summer 'tis the season!

Re: “Jake & Telly's Greek Taverna

Jake and Telly's has my vote for all around best patio. The fact that they have great, fresh food and awesome martinis is just gravy! Speaking of gravy, be sure to try their taziki, it rocks!

Re: “Nosh

They just added a wonderful appetizer of purple rice and bean looked like a sushi roll but was instead a stack..... loved it. . . service was top notch. Asked for a wine selection and it was perfect. Really enjoyed the meal. Recommend it highly.

Re: “Il Vicino

Il Vicino serves a wide variety of brick oven pizzas, calzones, panini, salads, soups, and pasta. However, there is such a wide variety of pizza, I haven’t tried anything else yet. Most are really yummy. My favorites are those that don’t have the traditional pizza sauce; garlic oil, pesto, balsamic marinara sauce, and spicy oil are all great. Every day they have a special pizza and you can select your own ingredients as well. I have chosen a couple of their pizzas that are a bit bland, but for the most part they are very good. On the table there is a bottle of spicy oil that, even though I am not a big fan of spicy food, I love to drizzle on all the pizzas I have tried.
This isn’t some cutesy Italian joint. The interior is modern and somewhat industrial. They also brew their own beer and I have heard very good things about it from friends who are hops heads. If you aren’t a fan of all the chain restaurants and want a friendly place with great brick oven pizza I defiantly suggest trying Il Vicino.
