It is simply other worldly...and now with the connecting hotel, it is as easy going downtown to leave town. And at Colo Springs rates, not New York's!
We stopped in this afternoon. The prices were more than fair as anyone who has ever eaten cajun cooking in the southeast would know. Most sandwiches and po'boys were $8.99 and you could choose whichever side you wanted to go with them. The food was delicious, arrived quickly, and the service was excellent. The waitress placed silverware wrapped in cloth napkins on the table when she seated us. Drinks were on the table within three minutes and the waitress quickly returned with a basket with a half dozen bottles of condiments. Our food was out in less than 10 minutes. The portions were large and were served on heavy earthenware dishes.
I guess they must have gotten rid of whomever served you, Unhappy, because my experience was great! In response to questions about why certain items are sometimes missing from the menu: This restaurant orders the seafood portion of their menu directly from New Orleans, not local fish farms etc. Therefore they only get what's in season, nothing frozen so say Alligator isn't in season or the season is unsuccessful for something like crawfish, they won't have it readily available... a drawback, maybe, but this is also insuring that you get the freshest seafood available...
No offense Unhappy, but it is socially unacceptable to not tip a server in the US. Servers must give a portion of their tips to the hostess, bartender, busboy, etc. On top of that, their salaries are usually around $3 an hour, as it is assumed by employers and the law that customers will provide tips.
When you don't tip, the server is literally losing money while they work.
Great food, great service..Good selection of local beers......
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.
@ Ishhod -- get the real story about the "physical altercation" before repeating your slander. Granted I'm a fan of Oscar's and I've gotten the full story from Phil (the "OWNER") and I've been at the bar when the "female" in question has called well intoxicated to scream at the employees. Get some facts behind that story. Oscar's rocks -- go for the killer burger!
Shhhhhhhh, This place is my secret..........wonderful food and service
Loved it. The muffaletta was really, really good. It's on my crave list now.
The basics - jambalaya, gumbo, and red beans were tasty and had an original flavor. What I mean by that is that they didn't taste like what my dad makes, but that's fine - they had their own flavor and didn't tasted canned or like just a half-hearted attempt at cajun food.
We'll definitely go back, and we'll make sure to take the kids so that they can roast marshmallows (evenings on weekends).
Yummy food, good time,great price. I went for the first time for lunch. The prices could not be beat. The serve was way faster then at most fast food places LOL. I had the pork sandwich it was so good. I will be going back for more.
