Re: “Quijote's, Black Bear Coffee, Steele Smokin

Quijote's was a huge disappointment. Service was horrible and the food not much better. They could not get anything right, green chile was so bland, in fact none of the tastes were memorable in any way. My two dining companions had the same opinion. Never going back. So my advice is... Don't go!!

Re: “Quijote's, Black Bear Coffee, Steele Smokin

Quijote's is an EXCELLENT place for Mexican food~~their ceviche is to die for as are their cucumber margaritas! Everything is reasonably priced and super-delicious!

Re: “Quijote's, Black Bear Coffee, Steele Smokin

Quijote's also has amazing green chile, which you can have smothering just about anything on the menu. Oh, and the shredded beef enchiladas - yum! Oh, and the tortas, and . . . Just GO!!!!

Re: “T-Byrd's new taco and tequila venture downtown

I was excited about this until I checked out their menu. Just 1 vegetarian option? :(

Re: “Whistle Pig Brewing blunders on the food and brew fronts

Very accurate!
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.

Re: “Café Roma offers more affordable eats in historic Tejon building

Someone needs to proofread their menu: "dinning" (dining) and "Seasar" (Caesar). With a new/revamped eatery, it's the little things...

Re: “Meet Cockpit Craft Distillery; Bonny and Read finally ready to open

The local building folks need to get a clue these people require you to over-engineer everything now so costs have skyrocketed and it takes months to get anything accomplished.

Re: “Cacao Chemistry to reestablish a dessert bar downtown, Underground changes hands

Brewer's Republic and Underground are (were?) great places. However, I question their business practices based on changes made in the first few days/weeks of ownership. On day 1 they increased all drink prices by 8.25% by adding tax to the list price of any drinks. Food prices also increased. No more happy hour food specials (used to be half price pizza and appetizers until 6pm). No more buy 10 get 1 free drink cards. The lights in the Underground are like sun lamps turned to their highest levels and instead of music you get to listen to television shows. Good luck.

Re: “BJ's Velvet Freez, Pikes Peak Brewing, Double Header Bar & Grill

I'm amazed that the Independent pays for these excuses of reviews to be written by those so unqualified.

Re: “EIM Thai, Peak Place Coffeehouse, King's Chef Diner

Bella's Bakery & Cafe owner Andy Schlesinger called me today with concern over how Bella's bread fared in the above Peak Place review. He said that after speaking with Peak Place's staff, he learned that they had been freezing the bread, which he advises against because indeed it dries out and crumbles easily.
"You can eat it cold or warm, but you just can't freeze it," he says. "At our shop, we butter it and throw it on the flat-top — it's delicious."
Schlesinger also said that Peak Place had been freezing it because of storage space concerns, but the two outfits came to an "amicable" agreement to have Peak Place discontinue using Bella's for baked goods.

Re: “Modern Market attempts chain change well enough

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.'

Re: “Modern Market attempts chain change well enough

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!

Re: “Meet the Lincoln School's baker

Bread as it should be! Slowly rising and made of freshly milled grains. I have a feeling many people will try it once and never go back to commercially made bread.

Re: “New Abuela's Cuban Bistro food truck to debut soon

Thanks Adam for letting us know about Lucy I'm Home — wasn't yet on our radar.

Re: “New Abuela's Cuban Bistro food truck to debut soon

Congratulations to the 2nd Cuban Food Truck to come along in Colorado Springs. My family and I are anxious to try the menu. How lucky are we Cubans in Colorado Springs to have not 1, but 2, Cuban food trucks here in town. If Abuelo's is even close to as good as the "Lucy Im Home" food truck, we are all the richer. Viva la Cuba!
