Re: “Speak Easy Vape Lounge

This is the best place in the springs to relax and network. You never know what kinda goodies you might win, or who you might see. I have been in love with this place since my first visit.

Re: “Stir

Cool, hip coffee shop that's a wonderful alternative to you know who.

Coffee is great. My pecan pie was right out of the oven, warm, sweet and gooey.

Order at counter, take your selection to a table. Outside seating too. Not pricey.

Yard sale coffee cups and flatware, funky old metal lawn chairs from the 1940s, in a renovated gas station ... recycling and re-purposing at its best.

Girl at the counter was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Free Wi-Fi and parking.

In the Old North End Neighborhood (ONEN), in the BON Shopping Center, at corner of Jackson and Wahsatch, a few blocks from Penrose Hospital just off N. Nevada Ave.

Closes at 3PM most days. I'll be going back.

Re: “Billy's Old World Pizza

I just moved here from the Midwest and I have to say maybe it does not rate with the high end pizza places like Giordanos or Lou Malnatis but for the value, the stuffed pizza is very, very good. I could not stop eating this so I ate even when I was full! Another sign of this pizza being excellent? when I had it for leftovers the next few days and warmed in my oven (do not use microwave!!) it even tasted better! I am so glad I found this place! Now I need to test the Roast beefs (i love the hot giardenaires they offer).
Art the pizza snob from Chgoland.

Re: “Kelly O'Brians Sports Bar & Grill

Working class and military trash? Well that covers about everyone. That customer must be independently wealthy or unemployed. I've been a customer since 1999, and be never had any problem with the staff or customers.

Re: “Phat Hatties Smokehouse BBQ

Re: “P.B. & Jellies New York Deli

If you get to Chapel Hills Mall in Colorado Springs, and you find yourself in need of sustenance, you might try PB & Jellies in the food court. The ambience is... Well it's the mall. But the food is terrific. I had a Reuben sandwich and I've got to say, it was the best Reuben sandwich I've ever had.

Re: “The Famous

Looking for grass-fed and finished beef, preferably. Also attractive is locally produced meats, not feedlot animals, hormone and antibiotic free.

Re: “The Famous

Lalahartma What kind of cattle do you find attractive these days? Or is this just another trendy thing?

Re: “Cafe 225 Coffee Shop and Venue

new, clean, and warm inside. I ordered a vanilla latte which was steamed by the barista, not a machine, which I prefer. They have a conference room for rent which I plan to use for casual meetings with new clients. I would recommend this cafe to friends.

Re: “The Famous

They really need to update their menu. Grain-fed beef is not very attractive these days.

Re: “Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q

Long waits. Pick up your beer as you go in and it will be warm by the time you get your food. Except for the brisket or pork sandwiches, everything is very salty. The meats, when good are great, but not always consistent. The sauces are rather tasteless...bring your own hot sauce to add some kick.

Re: “Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q

Great food and atmosphere. The meats are tender and true to expectations of Texas Smoked BBQ.

Re: “Schnitzel Fritz

Wahoo - the paper plates are gone. I've had both the schnitzel ($8.99) and the rouladen ($8.99) there recently and found them both to be good. Cannot go to four stars though, as I really wanted a draft beer to go along with them.

Re: “Fifty Fifty Coffee House

I had lunch at Fifty Fifty Coffee House last month. The Pressed Turkey Sandwich was delicious and the Fifty Fifty Iced Coffee is addictive (I had 2). The service was also great, and I loved the atmosphere. I will be back.

Re: “Bourbon Brothers Southern Kitchen

The mac n cheese that I got was absolutely amazing. Its got andouille sausage and red peppers in it and the portion size was definitely healthy. We got our food relatively fast although the place was only about 3/4 full because we were between lunch and dinner. Also the cornbread was just like momma cooked it... if my momma made cornbread that is. It was pretty good regardless.

Re: “The Famous

I ate at the Famous last week...and finally have my strength back enough from being sick to say it was the absolute worst meal I have ever eaten out. What in the meal made me sick...I don't know, but it was all tough, tasteless, cold, and just bad.

The meat was the worst part...try the Texas Road House if you want a juicy, hot, nicely charred steak. The Famous sucks.

Re: “Couture's Bistro

Actually, I recently ate at the Famous...and it just as bad as the Bistro. Really awful...one of the worst meals I have ever eaten out...not a thing was even up to mediocre.

Colorado Springs downtown owes it financial success to competing with MRE's the military eats in the field...so all this crap they serve downtown at these places is good compared to that for the military guys just back from hell...but it is hell for the rest of us.
