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...
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.

Love this bar. Keep it going Woodys
Belles Lounge is an amazing venue. It seems like every time I've gone in in the past month, the sound system has improved & so has the crowd ;D Ever since Funky Fresh Entertainment took over advertising, promotions & staff the place has taken off, from Brew & Beats' open EDM night on Monday to D*Funked Friday & Community Service Saturday. There's always something cool happening at Belles...... but what's up with the Nick Jr on tv?
Killer $1 tacos every Tuesday!
All I can say is WATCH OUT BLACK SHEEP.... SUNSHINE STUDIOS LIVE ROCKS!!
ITS ALWAYS PACKED NOW. All the bands I have seen there just love this place. Who needs a bar... Its a Venue and the best in the Springs!! Best Sound, Lighting and Stage... The crew are Pro's and know what there doing. See you guys this week end!!
Very cool new place, used to be the old tex-mex bar, but the new owners cleaned and polished it up and now its just a really cool neighborhood bar. Nice liquor selection and a really chill place. Not much on tap, but the bottle beer was abundant. Karaoke on a Monday Night was packed (probably because of the contest) Highly recommend this place
Excellent food, wine and service.
The girls who work there do not practice identity theft. The employees are just practicing the rules that the owners put in effect. They take your license when you open a tab 1. as more of a safeguard that you will not walk out on your tab. And 2. so they know its you using your card! They write down your ID number and state of issue when you close out to prove that they were diligent and assured that it was the owner of the card making purchases, and to cover their backs so, if a customer has a few too many drinks and disputes the bill the next day/days later, they have proof that they did indeed make the purchase. You should be happy that they go to such lengths to PROTECT you from identity theft.
Aside from that, its a great and entertaining place! Always a good time!
Loved this place. The drinks were great and the music fantastic. Can't wait to go back.
I always have a great time at Gasoline Alley. Its an awesome place to have a crazy and fun time. The location is perfect for downtown. There is always a good crowd and the rooftop is the best part about it.
A fun, mellow, locals-driven venue ... come early if you want to sit. Local brews and wine come out about even with this crowd. As an out-of-towner I felt very welcome -- music (Tenderfoot Bluegrass) was local and a fun band -- not as much old-time as I like, but still a nice night out --- town is cute but a bit of a sideshow. After two weeks on N. Academy Drive inally found a place where CO Springs "lets it's hair down".
This brand new venue has huge potential! We LOVED the food - it is exceptional....the bernaise sauce on the Steak Tapas was among the best I've had. The salmon is a generous portion perfectly cooked in a ponzo sauce over spinach. We also tried the special which was a perfectly cooked Halibut. It is sooo rare to find a restaurant that understands how to prepare fresh fish in Colorado. While this is clearly not "fast food", but rather "made to order real food", we find the service warm and friendly and the atmosphere and music make for a pleasant wait. The perfect dry martini didn't hurt either. The Creme de Brulee was also the best I've had.....rich and creamy, yet light with a hint of cardemom and ginger! They also cater to the "Gluten Free" diners.... We hope they are so busy that they will expand service to weekdays or lunch as well.
Great food, Great people, Live Music 3 nights a week along with Open Mic and Karaoke and Free Line Dance Lessons! All the fun of the big clubs in a neighborhood bar!
A great place to listen to music and food is very good as well
A real road house and the entertainers seem to enjoy that
One of the best bands around! Jake has his own style, plays great music and puts on one hell of a show. Go Jake!
The service and the music is great. The pool table is a great addition along with the beer pong table. But check out the bartender/owner Mike. Talk about hot! Look out girls here he comes!
Great food! Great live music! And defintely the best staff in town. Fun and relaxing place to come hang out. The Cheers bar on the north end of town.
Nosh's lunch menu was updated since the last time I had visited and it took me twice as long to order as I wanted to try EVERYTHING. I settled on a cup of squash and apple soup (although their new option for a soup trio was tempting) and their Brussel Sprouts with polenta, candied lemon zest, manchego and a Korean sauce/condiment called Kochujang. I was not disappointed. The soup, especially, was divine... the brussel sprout dish a nice mix of sweet and savory and good textures. Unfortunately we were too full to try dessert so no report there.
On my 'to try next' list: the roasted cauliflower plate with garlic, miso and caramelized onion and the chicken pistou sandwich. GREAT service - especially if you get Aspen.
Stopped in to Oscar's for a late lunch last week and a Black and Blue Burger with home fries. It was darn near a 10! One of my favorite places to stop when Im downtown.
