Re: “Regional chain Tokyo Joe's is economical but erratic

I haven't had a single bad meal from there in my MANY visits. Oh noes, it's a chain! Sorry if that cramps your street cred. It certainly doesn't mean it's not worth eating because they have more than one location. Weak.

Pretty sketchy...sort of looks like they hired panhandlers who really don't know what they are doing so what you get in your bowl is a total crap shoot.

Re: “A little square

I've eaten there several times and the only thing I like there is the Colorado Cheese Steak sandwich that you can only get during the lunch service.

Re: “Paravicini's proves its merit, 10 years in

Definitely one of my all time favorite restaurants in the Springs and the list is short.

Re: “Paravicini's proves its merit, 10 years in

Other than the wait staff being at best mediocre...the atmosphere, food, and owners are terrific...Our family has eaten there from day one and have long ago lost track of the number of fun and satisfying evening we have spent at Paravicini's...I would imagine over 75.

It's a chain restaurant. Nuff said.

Re: “Regional chain Tokyo Joe's is economical but erratic

I love reading the independent each week, but wow, I really have to disagree with the review of Tokyo Joe's. Our family use to drive up to Denver weekly to enjoy this restaurant and now that we have it here in the Springs we and all our friends have been going there twice a week and the food has been amazing each time. The place is packed everytime, so it's not just us that feel this way. The staff is so friendly, plus it's a super healthy option that even my kids want to go to often. So Bryce, you really got this one wrong in my and many others opinion. Makes me wonder if they did not advertise with you all or something because your review was so far from what most people are saying about it. Maybe you should give it another try or something ? We love it.

Re: “Sweets meet an abundance of burger selections at Bunz

"....and salty, limp fries...."

Egads. IMO that is NOT a "well worthwhile" place to visit.

If a place can't get fries right, avoid it .... fries are so basic, so universal, such a "food 101" kind of thing that no decent place should ever serve salty limp fries.

@MatthewSchniper, that'd be 2,872,800 potential choices.

Re: “Pig Latin Food Truck revs up, Lofty's shuts down

King - Now that is a dang good review. Well written and didn't pretend that you were not his buddy. I'm going to try it simply because I liked what you said and how you said it.

Re: “Pig Latin Food Truck revs up, Lofty's shuts down

Andres has a passion for cooking and I have a passion for good food. We spent a lot of time in a kitchen in Iraq together talking about that passion and his plans to get his own thing started.
(by the way, I wasn't in there cooking. I was in there waiting for his food to be done!) He is a master of making appetizing meals with limited materials in confined spaces. Combine that with his Columbian influence and you're left with food that tastes fresh and leaves you feeling satisfied.

I am completely confident that this will be THE BEST food truck in Colorado and will only get better. I vouch for this man and his truck not only as a friend but as a food enthusiast.

Enjoy his food truck while you can. With his personality, it won't be long before he ends up with his own television show.

I love going to Swirl. The atmosphere is great.

Re: “Q-czar

I keep going back...and I must say nothing in town holds a candle to it. Just by far the most distinctive, tasty, fresh, and well presented Mexican food in the whole region.

Comfortable, clean, well ordered...I am fussy, and I always leave Q's delighted. Prices are easily fair for the portions and quality.

We all need to chip in and keep them in business...this is not your typical serving line Mexican food with hot floured cheese whiz poured over it. Nothing canned, prepared earlier in the week, or assembly lined. Just fresh, delicious, and yummy!

Re: “From fire frontlines to popular pub nights, McCabe's is there for you

Love McCabe's BBQ Bacon Shrimp Appetizer too! Their homemade soups are the best. Come out and support this place. They are the real deal!

Re: “From fire frontlines to popular pub nights, McCabe's is there for you

I want to thank Jason Hann for getting in touch with me to further introduce himself, so he doesn't live on as the "regular guy off the street."
In his words: "Last year during Waldo I started the Volunteer and Support Services Team and that is how I met Bill Layton. I am the Co-Founder of the No Name Community Outreach Group where the majority of the volunteers who helped came from. Just wanted to let you know that the three of us weren't just random."
Noted. And thanks again to Hann and everyone else who pitched in for the community.

Re: “Fillmore fold-in, a market mobile and Colorado craft

Thanks for the tip on Ranch food direct, went today and had an awesome bacon cheeseburger, with home made fries (cooked in beef talo) and a drink all for $6 even. Drive past Carl's, McDs, BK, Arbys, Taco Bell, and all the rest to this place.

I think you missed the part about mouthwash. Or was that just more uninformed bs I smelled?

Is GMF a DUI trap in addition to being a dump?
