Re: “Colorado Smokehouse

The best BBQ in the springs! Great food, great prices, and a drive thru. If you haven't tried it yet you need to go.

Re: “Oakley's Café & Bistro at Sundance Mountain Lodge

New staff and new management have made some great improvements! I tried this restuarant again recently... and it was okay in the past.... but it is great now! The daily and weekly specials are great and the staff was super friendly and attentive. Thanks, Oakleys!

It's beautiful on the inside the staff was very friendly and one of the owners even brought my food out to me. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and it was outstanding. I always thought that it was best to start with the sauce and the meatballs to help me determine how good the Italian food is as this is a standard practice from my east coast background. I was very impressed and will be returning frequently as I look forward to eating more of the menu. BTW my friend had the lasagna and he insisted I taste it and we concur that this was easily the best lasagna in town.

Thank you for opening your restaurant. I brought my sister in to Ficco's for lunch. She catered for many years and makes a mean lasagna herself. I make a great lasagna myself and I am super picky. I was so blown over by their lasagna recipe. It was mouth-watering delicious. My sister was so impressed that she ordered a to-go lasagna for her husband. They live in Denver and are food snobs. The interior was surprisingly beautiful and impressive and the service was phenomenal. I could not believe the portions and the prices. The food tasted so fresh. I could not resist their cannoli and had a couple more pieces to go. Again, thanks!

This place is awesome – the interior is beautiful, the prices are extremely reasonable, and the most important thing … the food is phenomenal AND you get a huge portion for the price. The bread baked in house melts in your mouth. The caprese offers huge beefsteak tomatoes and large pieces of fresh, soft mozzarella. The dishes are the bomb and it is because the passed down recipe for the sauce is outstanding!

Re: “Joey's Pizza

From Brooklyn, have been searching for great NY Style pizza and this is it! The crust, the sauce, the high quality of the toppings...all of it is great. I can't wait to go back!

Re: “Great Wall Seafood Buffet

Check the dates on the other reviews, 2+ years old. There is new management and this now the best Chinese restaurant in town - bar none (I've tried them all)! Chinese, Sushi and even Mongolian Bar-B-Q. They are just completing a complete remodel and the place is bright shiny and all new! A MUST for anyone who loves Chinese in all its flavors.

Re: “Brewer's Republic

This is a great little bar! They serve up craft beers from breweries from all over in a friendly laid back atmosphere. Stop by and you will not regret it.

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: “Joey's Pizza

Great NY style pizza from the crust to the toppings, all are a step above the other NY Pizza joints such as Leon Gessi or B. brothers. When they get busy, orders can take longer than normal but it's well worth the wait. If something is not right with your order, Joey is quick to make it right. It is my favorite pizza shop. The calzones, wings, subs and garlic knots are excellent as well. I definitely recommend them.

Re: “Buttercup's Frozen Yogurt

Wonderful! I've been to pretty much every yogurt place in the springs. This one really stands out. Not only is the yogurt wonderful, but the place itself is beautiful. It is very unique which was a complete surprise. It is designed sleek and modern, has wifi, beautiful brushed metal tables, a sitting area with flatscreen, leather couches and is really a nice place to relax. At the same time its incredibly friendly and inviting, and I was surprised to find the prices were the same as all the other places. It also is impeccably clean, has a great fruit bar, and the owners are incredibly friendly. Truly standout all around.

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: “Fare Bella Studio and Gallery

A gallery filled with the unique visions of talented local artists in a variety of media and the recommended Edge framing business; the boutique has beautiful one-of-a-kind jewely and gift items. The owner, Patrice, is a watercolor artist and instructor.

Probably the best place in Colorado Springs for tea and lunch. The food was incredible with the flaky warm puff pastry shells filled with various types of sandwich spreads. I've had the crab, shrimp and chicken and they were all wonderful. The scones are to die for, always fresh and always wonderful. The choice of teas was fabulous! I recommend the melange du chamonix or any of the breakfast teas. The service was exceptional from both the lovely waitress and the owner who came out to say hi while she was baking fresh scones in the back. The house is charming both upstairs and downstairs full of unique gifts and lots of beautiful vintage items. I highly recommend this place and I have already booked my holiday high tea party for me and some cousins and I have no doubt that it will be fabulous!
