I've only been to the 8th St location twice and it has always been a good visit. The meds are great and the prices are fair in my opinion. The staff is awesome, great customer service. Only bad thing I noticed was that their sweet grass brownies were expired maybe? Not the best I've had but overall its a great dispensary and I'll go back when I'm in the area =)
We were there last weekend, and we had a blast! The food, especially green chile was delicious and the staff was a lot of fun. There is always some activity goin on there! We will definitely be back. I suppose everyone is entitled to their own opinions...
We've been enjoying Jose's since 1976; the ambiance has changed over the years to more of a family atmosphere lately, but the food is consistently excellent. Love the margaritas and chili rellenos, especially. Usually good service; every once in awhile we go for long periods without finding our server, but we usually get good coverage. The patio is awesome.
I've been frequenting the Keg for over 20 years and I have always had a enjoyable time and been treated in a friendly and courteous fashion. It is normally filled with local folks, relaxing and having a good time with friends. The food and beverages are GOOD and there is a nice variety to boot. The Keg is a classic Manitou neighborhood hangout!
Please disregard my poor excuse of a review above. The owner solved the issues that we had and he did it with a much better attitude than I did. Go and enjoy pjs bistro and try the bacon and blue cheese burger, it is excellent.
We visited mid-week and enjoyed a sampler platter with meat pies, jerk shrimp, and codfish balls. They were all very good, served hot and fresh. We had jerk pork and brown stew jerk pork as our main dishes. The cornbread was delicious - a non-standard recipe that's almost good enough to be dessert. The home-made jam spread on top was a winner. We ordered a bunch of food to try it all and did end up taking some of our jerked pork dishes home - of course they were delicious the next day, too. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Management, the chef, another chef, and the wait staff all checked by to see how everything was. We really enjoyed our meal and will go back again!
A "Diamond" in this truly rough Colorado Springs culinary scene. Chef Davis has manage to bring to this city something long needed and looked for. Southern/Cajun cuisine and the atmosphere/feel of dining in the French Quarter. My first experience at Springs Orleans, I almost forgot what city I was in for a bit, which is not a bad thing every once in a while. A wonderful place for a 3-4 course meal, or suits just as well for Beignets and Cafe Au Lait. If you happen to catch the musical talents of Thomas Dawson (Pianist for the Commodores usually there Thurs-Sat nights) the experience is taken to a whole other level. A wonderful dining experience.
comfortable atmosphere not all bar tables, open to 11, kobe hamburger cooked right, beer battered fish and chips are great. They have bbq but havent tried it .
Glad's has the best bbq ribs,chicken, and pecan pie pie I've ever had. Their sides are also very tasty, especially the green beans and mac & cheese. Cornbread is tasty, but too crumbly. We try to go there at least once a month. The owner and his wife are very personable. Two things I'd like to see: discontinuing use of styrofoam plates and cups and plastic cutlery (due to their not degrading in landfills) I prefer eating from real dishes and glasses when I go to a restaurant. Also I'd be happy if they offered unsweet tea as well as their sweet tea. Despite these small glitches, we'll continue to come to Glad's!
We love La Baguette on Chestnut. Breakfast and lunch have always been great, but now with their new dinner offering, we are thrilled. We recently took a guest there for dinner and had a superb meal with a top notch wine for a most reasonable price at a beautifully decorated restaurant. The only thing I'd change is to have authentic French cafe music in the evenings (such as some of the Putamayo CD's) The owner and his wife are always so gracious and friendly. We feel so fortunate to have this lovely place in our neighborhood.
different , no food coloring in sauce is sign of sanity!
will go again.
kind of small, patio is nice if no kids screaming at ice cream place next door after dinner when yuppies give them sugar
Just got an enormous teriyaki chicken rice bowl from these guys for lunch. Ordered the "small" and it came in under $5! Chicken was flavorful, not too much sauce and was thrilled they had veggies in the bowl, too. Didn't notice anything veg on the menu but hope they'll do a teriyaki veggie bowl in the future if I request. There's NO reason I'd ever order the large. This was enough for 2 meals. Friendly, knowledgable staff and wow, the price!
In the last week we have eaten here 4 times! Once was take out pizza and the rest was dine in. Everything i have had has been spot on and just flat out good food and plenty of it. The staff is very friendly and there is always someone checking on you to see if you need your drink refilled or anything else for that matter.
I love this place!!! The food is fresh, with true mexican flare!! The people that work there want nothing more but for you to enjoy your food and expierence there. I would truly reccomend Amanda's Fonda to anyone looking for a great meal, great time, and a full stomach...
Well I must say that the pizza was wonderful. I'm from New York and I know Hell's Kitchen does a fine job in making pizza. The only negative is that they don't wear sanitary gloves when handling food. They handle money at the cash register and then take care of the next customer without washing their hands. I find this appalling in this day and age when we must be concerned with infections of all kinds.
The beer is 5 stars. 5 stars for the house brews and 5 stars for the large variety of excellent guest brews. I always have a fovorite or two to drink and a new one to sample. Food os goof, not great. They are not trying to be a restaurant...they ae supplementing the beer. Service has been friendly.
All I can say is LOVED IT!!!!!! The fried duck wings are excellent. Also the stuffed artichoke. Love the ribs!!! You have to check it out, You will not be disapointed.
It is fun and corny songs are part of why it is. A very authentic UK style pub with prices that won't kill too bad considering it's part of the Broadmoore.
Good food and a great atmosphere.
Neighborhood Lounge says it all. This place is in the Cimarron Hills neighborhood on Peterson and Palmer Park in a little strip mall shopping center. Locals abound everyday and are generally very welcoming. Drink prices are very reasonable and the bartenders are very friendly.
Lunch specials are the norm Tuesday through Friday and are also priced right and full of homemade goodness. Open faced steak sandwich (a NY strip no less), meatloaf and the famous green chili smothered buritto.
A pool room with 3 tables and 3 dart boards (2 plastic and one steal tip).
Live music is only on occasion. Karaoke every Friday night though.
The crow is diverse as it ranges from construction worker to PHD.
Go there and feel welcome
Have eaten here several times and enjoyed it. The atmosphere is almost like an sparse bar (big screen included), and during the school year, filled with teens. The employees are friendly and the food is always prepared well. I've never received a "puck-ified" burger. While the chili-cheese fries are a little on the cafeteria-food side, the fries by themselves are crisp, thick and tasty. The textures in the chicken teriyaki bowl were perfect, and it wasn't drenches in the sauce. Even a small bowl is enough for a meal.
