I recently paid a visit to the Firehouse annex out in Black Forest. Located in the back room of a little grocery store, it has exactly 3 tables and a limited menu consisting of the basics. I ordered a plate of brisket and pulled pork. It was wonderful. Juicy, served without any sauce. You pick up a squeeze bottle of your choosing and can put on as much or little as you want. Sides were good too. There is no table service, just go to the counter and order your food. Got get your own damn drink and sit down and eat some very good BBQ.
Dropped in there April 10th to support the Bikers Against Child Abuse party. The band rocked from 1 to 7, all of the people were friendly, and the place was a blast.
I've been to this restaurant quite a few times and have had great experiences every time! It's a small local spot that serves up some great italian flavor in every dish. Everything tastes very fresh and the portions are a very decent size. I also love their Bella salad with a great raspberry vinaigrette!
I have lived in Korea and am impressed with the authentic quality of their food, although the restaurant seems to be divided into a "Korean side" and an "American side". The Korean Bulgogi Bbque is a consistent favorite of mine. I tried to engage the Korean staff by greeting them in their own language and was ignored - smiles were superficial and not the most attentive. But the food makes up for it and I will be back again!
A quiet, gentle place overlooking Colorado Ave. with plenty of corners to disappear into with a book or your thoughts. Unassuming atmosphere, good selection of coffees and teas made a cup at a time.
Good pizza, good calzones, both with great toppings options, but the sandwiches are GREAT. Especially the cold turkey sandwich. A fresh tasting sub with "better-than-your-average-sub" bread... crusty on the outside, soft on the inside. Simple. Casual atmosphere, friendly service, inexpensive and family friendly.
Amazing food, service can be slow on the weekends but it is worth the wait. The green chili kicks some heat too. I am not brave enough to handle the red chili yet. Biscuts and Gravey are devine. Love Western Omelet,
I liked it the ppl there are friendly and the fiid was good alittle bright with all the white but good
Love this place! really good reen chili. the staff is always on the spot. i have never waited more than ten minuets for my order. i look foward to going there everytime.
Found it by accident on a real estate buying trip, ended up living here. Having lived for over 50 years in CA and eaten 5-star Mexican food, I give Amandas a 4. Good, but not excellent. Was disappointed when we first went there that there was no carnitas! How can you have a Mexican restaurant without pork? However, the rest of the menu was decent, I'd say 3-stars.
Well, sometines good things happen. Amandas now has carnitas, and decent carnitas at that, my rating is now a 4. If they want a fifth star, they need to begin making their own chips, serve them warm and improve the dipping salsa. prices are reasonable, booze is tasty, good margaritas. Parking on weekends is horrible. Outdoor dining next to the creek a plus, if you can avoid the T-storms.
Love the atmosphere. Very Southern. Food is pretty good. Great drink specials and occasional live music. Shrimp poboys and oysters is what I recommend
Truly outstanding Pizza...very fresh ingredients. You'll pay about the same price as you do for the chemical corporate pie brought to your door. You know the one with the cardboard under it to soak up the grease....the one that will cause by-pass surgery by age 45. The mozzarella cheese is made on site...the toppings are all top shelf. The staff is excellent. We have already been back several times...same great food and service each time.

a really good time and easy to get to for a night out of this town.....friendly staff and a nice setting with decent restaurants, a cool theater and free parking right around the club
Fantastic fondue! Prices are though high so bring your walet and your credit cards too. Private settings that are comfortable, just hope the waitstaff doesn't forget about you once they put you in your cubby.
Go in the afternoon and take time to look around. It won't be so noisy and you can have a relaxed time. The food is pretty good too.
Good food, rustic surroundings, decent prices.
Good hometown place to take the family for a relaxed breakfast lunch or early dinner.
Fantasic doughnuts and even better biscuts and gravy.
Huge tasty burgers at reasonable prices. You must try the green chili soup, it is great.
