Re: “Trinity Brewing

Trinity is unique, and Colorado Springs is lucky to have it. First off - go here for the beer. The food is good, yes, but the beer is really the entire reason to experience Trinity. (I think right now they have a Cucumber-Basil Saison on tap - if you aren't into anything more adventurous than a Bud Light, you probably aren't going to enjoy this brewery.)

For the people who rate Trinity poorly; I'm not sure what they expect out of a microbrewery. Trinity has been rated in the top 25 breweries in the world; again, for a community as small as the Springs is; we're lucky to have a place like this. I don't know anywhere else in the city where I can go get beers as wildly different as Trinity offers with appetizers ranging from thick, sliced bacon slices served with maple syrup to vegan fajitas (which are amazing; and I'm not vegan!) - anyway... five stars.

Re: “Kelly O'Brians Sports Bar & Grill

Kelly O'Brian's is a staple in the community... has been as long as I've lived in CS. Great lunch specials, live music, kareoke... friendly staff. Most of all, they have been consistant for years... low turn-over so you see the same smiling faces!

Re: “Thunder & Buttons

Decided to stop and try the food here when we noticed the specials board while strolling through Old Colorado City - VERY glad we did! They had a lot more than just burgers and bar food. We had the Lettice Wraps as an appetizer and tried a couple of the daily specials - I had Chicken Marsala and the wife had the Sloppy Buffalo. Everything tasted great. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with very good service. Loved the vintage NFL helmets around the bar - will definitely be back for football season also!!

Re: “Gasoline Alley

" just stating a fact" Due to the privact act of Jan 2000, no establishment is legally allowed to keep or reproduce your personal identification for any reason, they are to view, confirm and return the Identification upon payment.
A few good reasons this law is in effect are due to issues that are similar to some of the reviews about this establishment.
Take a look at your local laws and see for yourself, this establishment can and should be sued for this poor practice..

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

Pay no attention to this 'real NAVAJO'. I'm part Native myself (I know this guy would not consider me real; Guess what? I don't care) and I am not offended by the name in any way. The Navajo Hogan ROCKS! Why don't you go pick on the KC Chiefs or Cleveland Indians or are you too wasted on Mad Dog 2020?

Re: “Zodiac Venue and Bar

Working hard on the bar food scenario. I have been booking the shows there for the last couple months and I agree that food is a huge plus for any place. I kind of look at it like this... my favorite places in Denver (to see shows) all have some sort of food attached or next door. So, that would be a win-win for Zodiac. Hopefully, we can make it happen in the near future.

Re: “Motif

I just went to Motif for the first time this weekend and LOVED it!! There was a male singer who was amazing. Loved that I felt like I was in a big city, but only had to drive 20 minutes to get there. My friends and I shared a bunch of stuff off the menu. The sliders and fries were to die for and the chef's special was great as well. A little hard to find, but it was well worth the search, it was a real treat. The service was great, and the drinks as well. The mango martini was out of this world. Can't wait to go back!

Re: “Crystola Roadhouse

Being a Singer / Song Writer / Entertainer, I like to take in a show when I can to relax. I saw a great show Tommy Castro & Jim Adams at the Crystola Roadhouse on March 5, 2011 and it was excellent! Darryl Maggs is really making this establishment, top notch with original talented artists for the front range music lovers. Great dinners also...

Re: “The Cow Pub & Grill

Me and my wife are really excited about this place. We have gone many times now and have enjoyed great service and a wonderful atmosphere. We have met new friends every time we have gone in. The bar and restaurant are open and the mood seems to attract a great crowd of people. It is hard to be alone at this place.

Now let’s talk food. My wife has always said that the best way to tell if the food is good is to try the appetizers. We tried the sampler platter. We were pleased with the selection and the taste was great. We have also tried the Wings, and they do not come by the piece. You get a whole pound! We tried the hot, but plan to try the other flavors soon. Wow, and the Fries with chili and cheese were great.

Me, I think the best way to check out a place is to try the Cheeseburger. Well the bread, meat and the cheese were a delight! My wife enjoyed her Green Chili and all was well in the world. The guy we sat next to had ribs and boy did they look good. Can’t wait.

The Beer, Cold Cold Cold (Nuff said). The mixed drinks are mixed just right. The Mixer complements the alcohol, the way it should be.

So, if you need a place to relax, unwind and enjoy good company and eats, and of course a good drink, then stop by the HOLY COW. The name says it all.
