Re: “The Silver Tongue Devil Saloon

Terrific getaway (with live music!) from the city - love the new patio looking out over Lake Gazebo. Koodoes to the new owners (met one of them - Scott). I'm now a regular from the city.

Re: “Sushi Ring

I love Sushi Ring! This is the best, and freshest sushi, as well as the most value for your buck in Colorado Springs. Elvis and crew are the friendliest and most generous folks group of people. Go there once and you will be remembered and greeted by name the next time you come back. Also keep in mind that they will continue to offer you more and more, because they want to make sure you have eaten your fill. They really treat each one of their customers very special. The best time to go is evenings, where for a small price, you can have all you can eat made to order sushi. I recommend the upside down shrimp and the octopus cucumber salad. Tres Parfait!

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: “Jamaican Flavor

Really enjoyed the curry goat and spicy jerk chicken. Live on north side of town but will make special trips for this.

Re: “Joanie's Mountain Gourmet Deli

The lunch is stellar there, the air is cleaner there, the view is incomparable there, and yes, the staff is second to none there. But the breakfast? The breakfast ranks as the best on the mountain. The breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, or breakfast sandwiches are expertly handcrafted by a staff with a culinary obsession. An obsession that drives the owners and staff to adhere to a strict regimen of quality without losing that small-town feeling that greets you with a genuine smile when you walk through the door. And the quality doesn't stop at 11am with breakfast. Lunch will tantalize your taste buds with sandwiches that are "built" and "crafted" with Boar's Head meats and cheeses and other fresh ingredients and breads, soups and salads that would make a French chef envious. Then there's the fresh baked cakes, pies and pastries - Oh well, there goes your resolve. Joanie's Mountain Gourmet Deli is far above anything in area - in more ways than one! Its the best experience you'll have at more than a mile and a half above sea level!

Re: “South Jersey Subs

Wow. Fantastic, friendly service. Great quality meats. My fave sub shop! A lot of sandwich for the price. The type of subs you get in New England are so hard to find anywhere else. I am so happy to have found this place! Highly recommend!

Re: “Lanshing Café

My wife and I have tried many Chinese Restaurants in the Springs and this is by far the best. This a family run restaurant and the owners quickly make you feel part of the family. I have worked my way through almost every dish on the menu and have never been disappointed.

Re: “Vietnamese Garden

We were only in Colorado Springs for a week but ended up going to this restaurant twice. The food is authentic Vietnamese, with fresh, flavorful ingredients, prepared to order. Service is friendly and helpful. Portions and prices are just right. Will definitely be back next time we are in town.

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

This is a great little mother/daughter coffee shop. Besides great coffee drinks, they have a wonderful little menu of homebaked goods, soups and sandwiches. This place is especially appreciated after a canyon hike or bike ride.

Re: “Kura Japanese Restaurant

We lived in Japan for three years and consider ourselves to be foodies, visiting restaurants at least 3x a week while there. We learned the language, took time to study the cuisine, and visited some of the finest establishments in Japan. By no means experts, we are widely experienced enough to recognize a "good" sushi restaurant. Given the limited choices in Colorado Springs, Kura happens to be one of the best -- along with Fujiyama downtown and Tomo on Academy. Kura is the only sushi joint in town that has a Japanese-born (and speaking) waitress and they sport the second-best sake menu in town (Tomo's is the best). The Mu sake with sashimi is well recommended, but their California rolls are awful because they use a salad mixture instead of separate avocado / crab / cucumber. HOWEVER, California Rolls in nearly all Colorado Springs sushi restaurants are are terrible for the same reason. The service is always quick at Kura, the menu includes lots of non-sushi items for colleagues who don't want sushi (the gyoza is good), and the price vs. quality ratio is right on. Now that we have kids we go out only 1x a week but it's Kura sushi 2 out of every three times we go out. Try the Mu sake and ask for it served in an ice bucket.

Re: “Dat's Italian!

Dined at Dat's Italian this weekend - great all around experience. The atmosphere was quaint and cozy, the Italian food was excellent. I have to give an extra mention of the marinara sauce and the generous-sized meatballs - very tasty! The owners (Joanne & Dennis?) were extremely gracious and very good to my young children. I would highly recommend Dat's Italian to anyone looking for a warm & friendly family meal experience. What a great little gem in Old Colorado City!

Re: “Dat's Italian!

My son, granddaughter and I found "Dat's Italian" while roaming around and checking out this lovely town. Well, "Dat's Italian" was a treasure, not a find. The food was wonderful; every mouthful an experience; and you could tell it was prepared with love. We met Dennis, who was extremely pleasant; and the waiter was a delight. They have an atmosphere that just made us feel right at home, surrounded by friends. What a wonderful ending for a delightful day ! Thank you all!

Re: “El Taco Rey

We love eating here. It's a great place to have a late lunch during the week. My kids absolutely love their beans and rice. Same as everyone else, the Avocado Pork burrito smothered is the only way to go. For us, it's the best mexican food in Co Springs.
