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.
Great place for friends and family to have fun!
Always friendly, always good food. Atmosphere is great and the staff well trained. I have taken large groups here and they all love it. My Colorado Springs area fav Mexican food.
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.
I liked the bar! The Band, Love.45 was great!! The staff was HOT!!! The girls in the bar were great looking - they do need to get rid of the STUUUPID Saddle chairs - who's idea was that???
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.
Simply the BEST pizza in Colorado Springs. But some time the pizza is lacking cheese ( 1 out of 3 times).
High quality, a good vibe, a comfortable and immaculately clean dining atmosphere. Their Malaysian Chicken is mouth watering!
Like the bar. The waitresses are fun! Saw the last band on earth in there a while back. They kicked ass! Some of the other bands I've seen in there since are lame though.
I like it. People were being fun and loud, much better than average bar food, fun deco...laid back joint and I've been in a LOT of joints.
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!
Nice wall space, easily accessible to the arts district and the public. Smaller sized shows, but usually innovative content. Worth a look !
Seafood prepared spicy! Super flavorful dishes... Unfortunately, I can't remember any of the 'real' names for them... but the large shrimp wrapped in bacon and fried ... TO. DIE. FOR. Also the shrimp and jalepeño peppers in a red sauce (she warned me it was spicy!) wrapped in tortillas was absolute heaven. Ginormous portions -- my meal lasted for 2 big lunches -- but there is no difference in lunch/dinner prices. Everything is one size and the same price all day (mostly $10-$15).
The menu is great because there are photos of a lot of the food as well as descriptions. They do have beer and a big, clean dining room and friendly service. You order at the counter and they bring it out to you, so I'd call it upscale fast Mexican seafood. Would be fun to go as a big group and all get different dishes and share.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
