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.
Machiavellian miscreants !!!
Tried to shop at Marisol Theraputics on Jan 1, 2014 (the BIG day) and have never encountered a worse company. Utterly incompetent and callous to their customers, both medical marijuana users and recreational users. I'm never going back. And when they go out of business it'll be a public service.
Got there at 12:50 pm on January 1, the first day retail pot was legal in Colorado. Marisol got their license to sell recreational pot well in advance so they should have been ready for the influx of customers. I got in an outdoor line I estimate to be about 120 feet long, with I'm guessing 200 people. Though I couldn't see how many people were lined up in the store. I waited over 4 miserable hours in the cold and wind in a line that barely moved, until I got close enough to the store to look in the window and see why the line barely moved.
Marisol only had one cash register active. It appeared that they only had one employee waiting on the one person at a time that could be accommodated. A second register at a separate counter went unused until the occasional medical marijuana customer came along (more on that later). There were many more Marisol employees but they were standing around looking bored and doing nothing. If they were at all concerned with the hundreds of people who had been waiting hours and hours in the cold it wasn't apparent. I could see thru the window that there were around 75 people packed into the store looking furious.
From that point I was 15 feet away from the front door. It would have taken another hour to progress to the front door, and--according to the store security guard and a man in front of me who gave up and left once he finally got into the store after 5 hours--another 2 to 3 hours until I could have bought something. Once I realized that the excessive wait was due to the store's incompetence and lack of planning I decided that I was unwilling to give this crummy company a penny of my money so I left. I was exhausted from the 4+ hour wait. Still I left not because of exhaustion or the additional wait, but because I decided to boycott Marisol.
But wait there's more. I just wanted to buy recreational pot. Marisol made their customers for medical marijuana wait outdoors in the same freezing eternal line. I was standing beside a cancer sufferer who had to keep getting out of line to puke. And after 4 hours a man about 15 feet in front of me, almost to the front door, complained to an employee and at that point was finally allowed to get out of line and go to the medical counter to get what he needed. He was clearly pissed, and for good reason.
Marisol's callousness was just appalling. They could have had signs up directing medical patients to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have had employees come outside to announce that medical customers could go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers telling medical customers to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers with their product selection so people could make their choices in line and decide what else to get if the store ran out of some products. They could have done countless things to be more efficient and less callous, but they didn't bother. Hell, some shops even had propane heaters so the people outdoors in line could be less miserable. Not Marisol. Nope. Screw the customers.
A lot of people around me left in disgust without ever getting to buy anything after we got a look into the store and realized that there was only one employee running one cash register. A lot more people vowed never to patronize Marisol again. I'm one of those people.
P.F. Chang's restaurant in Colorado Springs used to be great in service, atmosphere, and food but it's going downhill fast. It's has always been a bit pricey compared to other Chinese restaurants. The food is now WAY over salted/seasoned with smaller portions at a higher price too! The service is now sub-par at best and if need anything more than one drink refill or your check good-luck in getting service. And lastly, the atmosphere is now a trendy stuck-up upper-middle class snobs hang-out...too bad! And yes, if you're looking for an authentic Chinese meal then P.F. Chang's is NOT the place to go!
I agree, even with the new ownership and remodeling, it all looked and tasted worse. No wonder why they closed it down.
Bunch of cheats the department of wildlife. Rules apparently don't apply to them!
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
MY WIFE IS AND HAS BEEN A MEMBER AT MARISOL FOR ALMOST A YEAR AND THINGS HAVE BEEN WELL TILL TODAY. WE HAVE BEEN TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE 4YR ANNIVERSARY SALE WITH MEMBER OZ AT $135. THIS DONT HAPPEN OFTEN SO MY WIFE DECIDED TO STOCK UP AND BUY WHAT SHE CAN DAILY AND PUT BACK SOME FOR NEXT DAY AS WE DIDNT ASK THEM TO DO IT, THEY OFFERED TO DO IT FOR US. TODAY WE WENT TO PICK UP OUR MEDICINE THAT WAS HELD FOR US AND WAS TOLD THAT THE MEDICINE WAS PLACED BACK ON THE SHELF AND WE COULD ONLY BUY A HALF OZ PER STRAIN. AGAIN MY WIFE IS A MEMBER AND HAS HER PLANT COUNT HANDED TO THEM FOR THEM TO TELL HER SHE IS LIMITED. WE THEN CALLED A FRIEND WHO TOLD US ABOUT THE STRAIN HE HAD PURCHASED THERE TODAY. HE SAID HE PURCHASED AN OZ OF ONE STRAIN. BUT YET MY WIFE IS LIMITED. MY FRIEND IS NOT EVEN A MEMBER AND HE WAS ABLE TO BUY AN OZ OF ONE STRAIN YET MY WIFE CANNOT AND SHE IS A MEMBER....SOMETHING WRONG HERE. I DONT THINK MY WIFE CAN ALL OF A SUDDEN TELL MARISOL THAT SHE DONT WANT THEM TO GROW ALL 6 OF HER PLANTS AT ONE TIME..MAYBE A FEW ONE WEEK AND A FEW ANOTHER. THATS WHAT THEY DID TO HER..PUT LIMITATION ON HER THAT WASNT PUT ON OTHERS. THATS BAD BUSINESS. IM A CAREGIVER, AND I KNOW A TON OF RED CARD HOLDERS WHO SHOP VARIOUS PLACES INCLUDING MARISOL. THE ONLY THING WE CAN DO ABOUT THIS IS TO HAVE MY WIFE'S CAREGIVERSHIP CHANGED OVER(WHICH WE ARE DOING ON MONDAY, FIRST THING) AND SPREAD THE WORD AS TO WHAT HAPPENED TO US AND OUR STORY WITH THIS COMPANY. I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EV1 KNOWS ON EVERY WEED SITE, ON EVERY SITE I CAN FIND A PLACE TO PUT A REVIEW OR TYPE OUR STORY. WE WANT EV1 TO KNOW THAT WE WAS TOLD THAT MIKE STETLER THE OWNER CAME IN AND SEEN OUR WEED PUT BACK AND SAID NO THIS IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN AND PUT ALL OF OUR PROMISED MEDICINE BACK ONTO THE SHELF AND DIDNT EVEN SAVE US AN OZ..A QUARTER...AN EIGHTH..OR A GRAM OR ANYTHING MY WIFE(THE MEMBER) HAD PLACED INTO HOLD THAT A EMPLOYEE/FAMILY MEMBER SAID COULD BE HELD BACK FOR US. MY WIFE AND I ALSO NOTICED THAT THE RAFFLE WASNT GOING TO WELL WITH ONLY LIKE 25 TICKETS IN THE RAFFLE JAR AT THE TIME OF DRAWING. MY WIFE AND I THOUGHT THERE WAS GOING TO BE A LOSE TAKEN BY MARISOL AS THEY HAD 300 BUCKS IN ITEMS IN A JAR AND ONLY 25 TICKETS SOLD. SO WE THOUGHT, WIN OR LOSE HOW ABOUT WE BUY 155 BUCKS WORTH WHICH IS 31 TICKETS AND SEE IF IT HELPS MARISOL BREAK EVEN A BIT AND GIVE US A LITTLE OVER A 50/50 CHANCE AT WINNING, SHE WON. MY WIFE HAS SPENT HUNDREDS IN THIS DISP OVER THE ENTIRE SALE, AND SHE AND I HAVE WORKED HARD TO GET THERE EARLY AND GET FIRST PICK OF MEDICINE JUST TO HAVE IT STRIPPED AWAY??? I THOUGHT THERE WAS A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE SITUATION. MY WIFE DIDNT SIGN OVER HER PLANTS TO BE TREATED WORSE THEN A NON=MEMBER, AND MARISOL...YOU CAN BET, ILL MAKE SURE TO TELL EV1.
BUSINESS CLOSED AND REOPENED AS A NEW BUSINESS PLEASE UPDATE WITH NEW INFORMATION THANK YOU
worst experience ever , rude , did not ever get credit for my punches like i was told i would even though they took the card from me. Weights seem off - bud seems tumbled.
Horrible service and poor quality Meds. I thought this place would be great from all the super reviews. Highly disappointed, the Meds were anything but quality. The people were stuck up and rude. If you have high expectations do not go here! You will only be wasting your time and money. They are way over priced for the dirt they try to sell. :(
Thanks but NO THANKS!
Horrible! Why even pay rent for a dispensary. They should slang dime bags on the corner!
Looks like all the customers got together, smoked a little weed and starting posting reviews...can you really trust the perspective of someone who is high.
MMJ is such a joke. I saw a bunch of kids walk out of a weed store the other day with bags in their hands, alughing and pushing one another, all going to smoke dope...there was nothing wrong with any of them, other than being dopers driving around in their mom's car.
We arrived just before 6 am on Friday; there appeared to be just a single employee, who not only opened the door ten minutes late, she proceeded to seat just the first group of diners before disappearing into the back. No eye contact, no "I'll be right with you," nothing but silent contempt. Since she made it clear, on behalf of her business, that iHop cares nothing for our business, we left and won't ever go back.
We tried Jun several times. The food was OK, not great, and the service was horrific. Go to Ai, just down the road. Better food, nice people.
This place is unclean, the food undercooked, the preparation uneven (meaning the ingredients are not appropriately spread around the crust...the sauce is simply ketchup from a squirt bottle, and the help has never held a job before and will probably turn over before the week is out.
You need to go there when you are not hungry just to watch how awful the wait staff is...carry out has its own set of waits involved.
Jun needs to take care of this because it is hurting his business...we often think about going there, and then decide we don't want to be frustrated and have our evening upset by incompetence and insolence.
What a horrible experience. We came for Sushi after a fun day at the pool with our friends. Our friends had an 8 month old child with them and it was like we were putting them out by having her with us. We were seated and completely ignored. We waited 20 minutes for water!! I finally had to get up and ask the hostess for someone to come to our table to take our drink order, after that it was another ten minutes before someone finally came. When we finally were able to place our order, it was like we were asking too many questions and annoying the waitress. It was another 25 minute wait for our food to arrive and the order was incomplete. We had also asked for some hot water so that we could make the baby a bottle and our waitress completely forgot about it! And it is not like we ordered the least expensive things on the menu, in fact two of us ordered the most expensive meals they offer. Our money spends the same regardless of whether we have a child with us or not. The little girl was an angle throughout the entire, nearly 2 hour, ordeal and did not cause any disruptions or annoyances to other customers. It was as bad a performance as I have ever seen at a restaurant and I would caution to stay away!!!
snooty pricks, overpriced beer, lame ass way overpriced food, and did I mention snooty pricks? will never go back
