Re: “Perennial power

"Stomach-stirring" sounds like something one doesn't want to have!

Re: “Dine & Dash

Charlie's is dirty, disorganized, and sure to make you sick. The specialize in burned pork ribs that are tough as nails and grisly. I find it hands down the not even BBQ really.

Re: “Dine & Dash

Raven's Nest has always been privately owned by people who care about coffee and their customers...support them and you support local business along with rewarding hard working people for their good attitude in making life small town lovely!

Re: “Ground truth

Thank you Indy for the great write up of Urban Steam. They've introduced a Monkey Wrench into my breakfast plans and I love it!

Re: “Full steam ahead

Beer Lover...this is certainly not my experience of this place...the service was very accommodating and eager to please without being bothersome. The beer was cold and thirst quenching as well mind bending. The food was real high end bar food, as good as it gets in Colorado Springs. I will certainly become as much a regular here as the fiscal cliff will allow me.

Re: “Full steam ahead

Obviously this place gets a favorable review due to advertising. The service is horrible, the food comes out cold and the beer is foul. I've yet been able to eat or drink a beautiful building. The owners may be able to hire talented contractors, but have no clue how to run a brewery or restaraunt. Their brewing equipment is not even hooked up at the new location. The staff at both locations don't appear to have any training to speak of and don't have a clue about the menu or beers. Waste of time and money!!!

Re: “Mejor y mejor

The torta ahogada is meant to be drowning in sauce (ahogada literally means "drowned"). That's the style in Guadalajara, where that style of torta originates. Thanks for the review -- looking forward to trying Quijote's! Yum.

Re: “Bright early

I am less than eager to patronize establishments that are sqaking about health care reform. Especially when the owners have a numerous restaurants and are clearly not hurting.

Re: “Side dish

This man is a complete scam artist and just took me for all the money I had saved to move. I would now be homeless if it weren't for friends. He is good at what he does, be careful and watch for his properties on University and Pikes Peak and one on Pikes Peak and Logan. Everything will seem completely legitimate, but it's not. I will not rest until he pays for his heartlessness.

I had a truly delicious cup of coffee at Kelly's shop. What a delight! Brett from Mission Coffee Roasters

Re: “Bright early

I find they lack quality control, are fairly inconsistent, and simply not very careful.

The sausage varies from having sat under the heater lamp and dried out to raw in the center. If you order three eggs, you could easily be served two. The amazing thing is that the menu lists three eggs, so why would you ever just have two delivered from the kitchen.

The pancakes can range from rubber to raw as well. They still need a little work...also having a 20 year old waitress have to tell you what they like is beside the point, my tastebuds are a bit more known to me than needing their input.

Re: “Q-czar

This place is very very nice, glad to have you there, cares that you have a good experience, and rightly proud of their food. I don't know where to begin talking about what is good here, just a really nice place to have a healthy and satisfactory bite to eat, feeling good in your tummy after the fact.

Re: “Dine & Dash

Having eaten in all three of these, the one addition I would add to their menus is lomotil for the after effects.

I swear the cook at the Peak Grill put something in a special request change to a menu item that laid me low for an entire weekend.

Re: “Not quite there

We had dinner at 2South tonight and the food was great. Our charcuterie had a very good duck pate along with the sausage and wonderful bacon. The pickles were good, too. The tomato bisque and macaroni and cheese were very good. The service wasn't up to the level of the food. They really shouldn't be sorting silverware on a table in the dining room. The pacing on the food and clearing wasn't good. We will be back. It is well worth a visit.

Re: “Side Dish: New menu at Muldoon's

This is actually the best Mexican food in town. So much of what passes for Mex or Tex-Mex here is melted cheese with hot peppers poured over various substances.

Jose's actually has distinct ingredients, well prepared and presented food with a good bar...all for no more than the dives.

It is our place of choice for Mex dinning.

Re: “Flame out

I had brunch on Sunday 11/18/12 and had a great exprience with the young kid that cooked my omelet. I think his name was Brian. He was full of energy and had great customer service. With being a customer service auditor, I would hire him to work for me. Awesome Job Brian!
