This was my favorite hang out when I lived in the Springs. The customers are friendly and from every walk of life you could think of. The drinks are stong and the music is good, kareoke is best in town and the weekend steaks that are grilled outside are to perfect and cheap priced to ever miss. Penny now of Phoenix AZ
I think the food is outstanding - always a good experience.
Excellent lunch buffet during the week.
Great, unique food with many vegetarian/vegan options. Live music is pretty good. The patio in the summer is the best.
Fabulous food and drinks - great service. Live music would be nice.
Great fun and really helpful staff.
Heart of Jerusalem has the best hummus I have ever had! I don't usually like falafel, but theirs is fantastic and has become my normal order. The dolmas are perfect and served warm and the baklava is nommy. I wasn't too fond of the sandwiches, but the pita bread is incredible, especially with the spice mixture on it. Best Mediterranean food in Springs! Only thing they are missing is spanakopita.
Jack Quinn's is great Most of the time. The food is pretty consistently good. The Sunday brunch there is the best! I used to go every week for the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz, but got frustrated with the sound quality of the speakers (only hearing every 3rd word during a quiz is annoying) and stopped going. I like their live music, but its always too loud for the space they are in. If they get the speaker system fixed they would definitely be a 5 star place.
I worked next door to Nemo's and was in there all the time. They have great drinks, and are willing to make things that aren't on the menu. All of the food there is delicious! Breakfast burritos, muffins and scones (made fresh every morning), croissant sandwiches, and salads. A little pricey but definitely worth it. The owner, Tracy, always remembers me and asks how I am doing. She is wonderful! Some of her staff is a bit forgetful and don't seem like they want to be there, but if you catch Tracy everything will be amazing.
We enjoyed Firehouse a great deal, especially the brisket. It's worth a try. http://oinkety.com/?p=2112
I agree with the last review. I've eaten there numerous times b/c the pizza tastes so good. Personally, I've never had a bad experience, but I've noticed the staff tends to become a little tense when service picks up. They've only been open a couple months, so I think once they get there work flow down things should fine. As for the food. The Hell Fire is one of the best pizzas I've ever tasted. My kids love the mac & cheese pizza. Yes, mac & cheese. We all think the homemade cheesecake tastes great as well. The taste of the food is worth dropping in trying for yourself.
Our visit last Wednesday was nothing like the previous review. Owner was friendly, and gladly explained the menu items to us. The wait for the pizza was a bit long, but the pizza was worth the wait. We had a couple slices of the special while we waited for our pizzas to be cooked. The slices were a bit cool - not bad tasting though. The pizzas we ordered were awesome! We will definitely be back - hopefully he has a liquor license by then.
good food, the wait can be loooooong sometimes...
a great value for your buck with healthy meats and local vegies, good stuff!
My husband brought home takeout for the family from El Poblano last night. It was delicious. This is not standard "Mexican" food. The flags flying were from Honduras, El Salvador, and Mexico. Judging only from the food we ate, I don't think Mexico has the primary influence.
Unfortunately I can't tell you the names of most of our dishes, because he just ordered a few random things and there wasn't a copy of the menu to bring home :( But I can tell you that none of the items were food that you'd get at another local Mexican eatery.
One item was Papusas, which are Salvadoran. They are delicious and definitely not health food.
We'll go back!
Very good place. We had an excellent evening. Not sure what Fritz is talking about. The beer was great and so was the food.
We like their bbq. I love the pulled pork and the smoked turkey is great too. My husband likes the baked potato they cover with brisket. We've tried it all and like the meats. The kids usually get the smoked sausage. I'm not that thrilled with the sides. The baked beans are pretty good, but the rest I could leave it. There is always a line out the door here too.
I like this family friendly Sports bar/restaurant. Great burgers and sandwiches. The nachos are good. I like the Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich the best. My kids like it because it has cute basketball shaped TVs on the tables. They watch Nickelodeon while they eat their meal. Typical kids menu is fine. Kids eat free too! I wish the game room was bigger or had more interests for the younger kids. It's also a great place to meet friends for the game or happy hour after work. Great location too to meet before a Sky Sox game. The service sometimes can be slow with the wait staff.
Very friendly staff. Had more strains before new laws took effect making them grow most of their own product. Would like them to stay open later. Love their specials since I am not very strain loyal. The tree hugger side of me likes the glass jars they use to send product home. They offer me a drink every time I walk in the door and make it a point to remember atleast my first name. Always very clean.
Who wrote this review an alien! Come in on Friday nights and the locals are packing the restaurant. Do you want good food or urban stuckup. this place has good food and the locals keep coming back for more!
