Re: “Sarges' Grill offers common ground to eat on

These comments make me LOL.

According to the most factual source of information available, *cough* Wikipedia *cough*, The Independent was created to provide "...informative, entertaining and thought provoking..." articles.

I consider Bryce's words quite thought provoking. No matter how you slice it, he's made you think about his words, albeit somewhat negatively, but think nonetheless.

Re: “Sarges' Grill offers common ground to eat on

Shawn, as much as you wish I acted like an advertising agency, here's the actual deal: The point of my reviews is to help readers find new places, and also to comment on the value of the food I sampled, for those interested in my opinion.

It's fine that you want to spray cash at anybody with a Pikes Peak zip code, but there's a percentage of the populace that wants to know if their money will be wasted or not, and operate on guiding principles that involve more than just the address. Guess which one I'm writing for ...

No business deserves support simply for existing.

Re: “Sarges' Grill offers common ground to eat on

So I've not had the opportunity to eat at sarges grill as of yet but Bryce Crawford always rips places apart especially local establishments now I'm even more inclined to try them because they need to be supported. This type of review is bad for a small business owner. It would be a better idea to let them know the issues and go back after they have corrected them and then review them and report your experience. The Independent is all about independent businesses but I don't think that Bryce Crawford gets that. I would like to see the independent find a writer that cares about this city and it's local establishments as Matthew Schniper does.

Re: “BooDad's becomes better, bolder on its march Westward

My wife and I ate there last week and it was cold and bland. Yet another disappointing cajun restaurant in Colorado Springs.

Re: “C.B. & Potts slings safe suds, some food duds

Never found any of the 3 eateries mentioned to be very memorable, just watering holes for those who wish to get something to eat with their drinking.

Rye bread would not be gluten free. You can make a rye flavored bread with almond flour and flax seed, but it is not especially moist.

Re: “Muffin topped

I just re-read your review and just need to say give it time they haven't been open long enough to work every bug out. You know this all too well as you have worked in the industry for quite awhile. So let them iron the kinks out and revisit.

Re: “Muffin topped

I have since been in to alter the heating procedure for the cinnamon roll and so there should not be any more issues.

Re: “Muffin topped

I love the food. you forgot to mention the fact of the place is absolutely spotLess and doesn't smell like urine anymore. I love the fact that I can lean up against the bar and not worry about sticking to it by the years of all the grease that the last owner neglected to clean.

Re: “Muffin topped

I make the cinnamon rolls and there isn't much possibility of the cinnamon roll being dry with all the tallow and butter in it Unless it was heated up too long I may have to run a few reheat ideas by them. -shawn The sourdough boulangerie

Re: “Sorrisos kicks out addicting mountain-town Italian

Thanks for the insight, Shawn. The use of cream in carbonara is far from agreed upon.

Re: “Sorrisos kicks out addicting mountain-town Italian
