Me and a dear friend of mine went here today because of your review. We were sadly disappointed for the price the amount of food was almost ridiculous butt since we were paying $40 for 1 steak with a quarter cup of refried beans in a cup next to it ordered medium rare and we received it well done when we said something about it cuz there was absolutely no pink in the steak at all we were given $5 off so we paid nearly $35 for an overdone tough piece of meat granted the flavor was awesome but very disappointing.
My sentiments exactly! Well done...great read.
Best Bar B Que in the Springs by far. The owner is very helpful with giving tips to do your own smoking.
Jack, best of luck and keep up the good work. I'm glad you appreciated my thoughts on your food.
Mr. Swartzell, I would like to thank you for the outstanding review of Barney's bbq. You must know that a review like that is a great positive for a new business. And for that I am grateful. We will keep working at our craft. Our goal is to provide the best bbq in Colorado Springs. Again thank you.
I would have to respectfully disagree from this review which seemed to me a bit mean spirited and a bit elitist in the writing. The smoked burger I just had tonight was great and the side of fries were amazing. I had the smokey porter (3 glasses worth). It was dark, smooth not to hard on my taste buds. (I'm not a big fan of hoppy beers). The smokey porter was a more stout version of what a guinness might be. The malt cider, I will agree, is middle of the road but overall, I would say the notion of the beers being "inferior" might be a little hyperbole. I have recommended this establishment to all my friends and I would recommend for all to try and figure it out for yourself. I like the "Pig" and plan on coming back again and again.
Great review! You had me at, "It's very sessionable at 4.1 percent ABV, but who the hell can afford to session $7 pours?" Trinity has had some great beers, but Chilly Water (when in season) for example, is up to a $9 pour! High ABV, granted, but come on man! Trinity's motto is to "Kill the Pint Glass"...but I believe that is only to make more money on a 10 ounce, high dollar pour.
I say, go to Bristol where the $4.50 Pint Glass is alive and well...and very tasty.
I thought he was moving to Denver years ago? Shoot, your buddy Dave relocated as he cared years ago.
LODO would find u laughable.
Still, I will say I love (though years ago now) the Belgians you had on tap. I hope you still do. Nothing like a DT draught which is so yummy.
I realize you don't recall me but I found you rude even some time ago when I could walk still at some beer outing in Old Colorado. Your saison, to me, was tasty. Still I could not even find the time to offer a smile and a hello since you were so uninspired but certainly not busy.
Haha! What a loser, Jason is! Good to see a review, though. I'm sure there's some tasty beer.
The Taco truck comes to my work every Thursday. Everyone at the clinic, always counts on him being there! Me especially I love the food, George and his wife Sandra always take good care of me. I have told everyone you have to try it. I recomend this fiesta grill to all and everyone. - Vanessa
Hmmm, they still have some way to go.... Hit or miss with the quality of their food.
It's more like try it to know you DON'T like it rather than you DO.
Serving beer that they told you they screwed up with limited choices because they ran out of others. Slow to pour beer at that. Food smelled good however after drinking a piss I left.
Someone needs to proofread their menu: "dinning" (dining) and "Seasar" (Caesar). With a new/revamped eatery, it's the little things...
I was just this week reading about the Hobbs Family Farm in the magazine 'Local Food Shift'. It's exciting to learn about what Dan and others, like Mike Callicrate, are doing to connect Colorado consumers with local food growers. For those wondering what local food is and why so many of us care about it, copies of this magazine can be picked up at Ranch Foods Direct, which is where I got my copy. And it's free. RFD is now in their new location at 1228 E. Fillmore, so stop by and check out all the 'Food that's good ... and good for you.'
More of the same trend of corporate america trying to ride the coat tails of the local food movement. I ate breakfast at one of the Modern Market outlets in Denver a few month ago. It was quite good, but when I asked what on the menu was local, they replied "nothing, but its farm fresh from somewhere!". Wish there was some way to hold these kinds of outfits accountable!
Dined there recently with my family. Quite possibly the nicest dining experience I've had in my 35 years in the Springs. To experience the facility alone is worth the price of the meal. The food, beverage and service matches as well. A must visit dining experience.
Really, no review on any of their steaks? It's a steakhouse.
oh I just cannot wait to run this bakery down!
Kudos Matthew! This is an outstanding article! COS is fortunate to have a baker who uses traditional grains and prepares them using traditional methods - as recommended by Nourishing Traditions. And COS is also fortunate to have Mike Callicrate and Ranch Foods Direct providing consumers with a healthy alternative to industrial produced faux food. Be aware, though, that to get the full benefit of these grains, slather the bread with butter from grass-fed cows. Raw butter is best, but as it's illegal to purchase ANY raw dairy in stores, you may have to make it yourself.
