Our visit last Wednesday was nothing like the previous review. Owner was friendly, and gladly explained the menu items to us. The wait for the pizza was a bit long, but the pizza was worth the wait. We had a couple slices of the special while we waited for our pizzas to be cooked. The slices were a bit cool - not bad tasting though. The pizzas we ordered were awesome! We will definitely be back - hopefully he has a liquor license by then.
good food, the wait can be loooooong sometimes...
a great value for your buck with healthy meats and local vegies, good stuff!
My husband brought home takeout for the family from El Poblano last night. It was delicious. This is not standard "Mexican" food. The flags flying were from Honduras, El Salvador, and Mexico. Judging only from the food we ate, I don't think Mexico has the primary influence.
Unfortunately I can't tell you the names of most of our dishes, because he just ordered a few random things and there wasn't a copy of the menu to bring home :( But I can tell you that none of the items were food that you'd get at another local Mexican eatery.
One item was Papusas, which are Salvadoran. They are delicious and definitely not health food.
We'll go back!
Very good place. We had an excellent evening. Not sure what Fritz is talking about. The beer was great and so was the food.
We like their bbq. I love the pulled pork and the smoked turkey is great too. My husband likes the baked potato they cover with brisket. We've tried it all and like the meats. The kids usually get the smoked sausage. I'm not that thrilled with the sides. The baked beans are pretty good, but the rest I could leave it. There is always a line out the door here too.
I like this family friendly Sports bar/restaurant. Great burgers and sandwiches. The nachos are good. I like the Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich the best. My kids like it because it has cute basketball shaped TVs on the tables. They watch Nickelodeon while they eat their meal. Typical kids menu is fine. Kids eat free too! I wish the game room was bigger or had more interests for the younger kids. It's also a great place to meet friends for the game or happy hour after work. Great location too to meet before a Sky Sox game. The service sometimes can be slow with the wait staff.
Very friendly staff. Had more strains before new laws took effect making them grow most of their own product. Would like them to stay open later. Love their specials since I am not very strain loyal. The tree hugger side of me likes the glass jars they use to send product home. They offer me a drink every time I walk in the door and make it a point to remember atleast my first name. Always very clean.
Who wrote this review an alien! Come in on Friday nights and the locals are packing the restaurant. Do you want good food or urban stuckup. this place has good food and the locals keep coming back for more!
comfort food in the form of sandwiches!
I've been there several times -- and have always enjoyed the food and service. Evenings are always packed...doesn't matter which day of the week. It's definitely one of my top favorites. I understand why someone would consider it "flock mentality." But, it's good. That's it.
I'm way over 45 and I have been treated with great friendliness over the past 9 months by staff, except for one young guy who is gone. The choices are excellent They are professional about the business part so I don't worry that they wiill be shut down. They are also very helpful for newby growers and they usually have good clones. Stop by and see for yourself.
The perfect dive! Great food and fabulous service. The owner is a little nuts but is rarely there.
Love this place!!!
Try the "Margarita" pizza!
The buffet was great! Where else in Colorado are you going to get pastelles? or mufungo? The real deal. I have to agree that the service was slow. If you are in a rush this would not tbe the place to go. Other than this I give it 4 thumbs up!!
Totally delicious. Be sure to get the green papaya salad on your taco/burrito/bowl. They make their flour tortillas fresh. The braised pork is outstanding, as is the corn salsa. They make their own guacamole - none of that neon green paste that tries to pass.
Loved the food - truffle coated french fries, tempura fried bacon, tasty shrimps all with nice dipping sauces. The music was outstanding and the place was comfortable with an elegant, upscale vibe. Only complaint was the noise level in the room - lots of hard reflective surfaces and chatty youngsters.
My wife and I ate there last night and this summary of whats wrong with this place is the problem most small businesses have in getting started...I look at it like this my mother raised me on good home cooked italian food and it is all about the flavoring...I had the Eggplant and also sampled the meatballs and the tomatoes with mozz/basil....
I loved it the thing to remember here is you can go anywhere and get fast food or some places to have fine dining and you will pay either way for it heartburn and indegestion from fast food and pricy small portions from a fine dining establishment...
Dats Italian is like sitting down to my mothers table and her saying eat eat...JoAnn and Dennis treat you like you just came over to their house for a meal complete with the manners and hospitality of a family sit down...I do not know where Bryce is from but in my home town if you have the nerve to eat at my table and then complain about it you may find yourself in the alley behind the building with a broken leg...italian food is about eating and having family around and Dats Italian made us feel like family we will go back often...
Thanks for the experience
this is place is really cool it is small but the sound is amazing and the environment is all about the music a definate must visit...the venue focuses on only having 2 acts each night but the quality of enetertainment is top notch...no alcohol is served kleeping a true under age place at the front of its priorities...
The curry chicken salad sandwich and the Reuben are also mighty mighty tasty!
