Re: “French twist

Just had lunch at the French bistro. Wonderful casserole finished off with dessert. Will be back again. Charming decor with great service.

Re: “Bar barbecue

This place has gone DOWNHILL and hit bottom! The last few times I have been there, the pulled pork was so dry that it crunched between my teeth! The last straw was my last visit, when I bit into a spoonful of frozen potato salad.

When I returned it, I was told that I should have brought it back sooner. Sooner? By the time I brought it back, the potato salad had melted and was a drippy mess.

ou are correct, Howard would have NEVER served anyone food like that, and I think he would not want to have his good name even associated with Kasey's. I happen to know Mr. Smith, and he is an hones and upstanding man, and NEVER in the last 20 years that he was in business did I ever get served bad food.

I anticipated that they wouldn't accept responsibility, so I will be posting a video where you can clearly hear the 'crunch' of the frozen potato salad.

Re: “Rosie's revisited

Sounds downright awful if you ask me.

I went to the Rosie's in Monument several years ago, and I swear the mash and gravy was out of a can, plus it was deadly with salt (just like Village Inn's "food"). Yuck. Never went back.

If you're in the area of Diggy's, go up to All American Sports Cafe at Voyager and Middle Creek Pkwy for REAL food, great green chili, a superb Philly Cheese Steak and much more. Now open in the same little center as the Sports Cafe is Duca's Pizza, which is excellent. You can even get a fine breakfast or lunch sandwich in the Great Harvest Bread Co just two doors from Duca's. Try them!…

Re: “Flame out

I ate at the Sunbird for the first time last Saturday night. The food was great. The service was great. The price was about what I expected for a restaurant of that caliber.

Re: “Dog days

The Nevada at Filmore Hot Dog stand is dirty, stale, and past it's expiration can be certain of an upset stomach even if you avoid the filthy eating space by getting carry out.

Re: “Seeking symmetry

Hi Katherine,

According to the importer, the other two locations are Pizzeria Locale in Boulder, and Fired Up Pizzeria in Durango.

Re: “Seeking symmetry

What are the other two places with wood ovens?

Re: “Roaring fork

This is absolutely my favorite place to eat in Denver! But they took my favorite thing off the menu, NOOOOO! They used to have this Truffle Artichoke Tortellini in this amazing broth that was TO DIE FOR! Now I guess I need to go back up to Denver to pick a new favorite... last time we were there the bartender told me it would never come off the menu it was everyone's favorite... bummer... BUT, still AMAZING FOOD!

Maybe I'm missing it, but do you ever mention where this is?

Re: “Strong bones

Great review, spot on.

Sure beats that tired old over-priced Sunbird any day.

Re: “Strong bones

Someone from Bonefish tweeted me this link, which has info on the company's sustainability practices:…
I also emailed a couple of questions via their media agency in hopes of determining exact source points on the fish, and shrimp in particular. I'll re-post here if I get a reply.

Re: “Strong bones

Hard to believe a chain could be this good...but they give everyone else in town a run for their money...and the customer wins by getting a great value for their money, one that stays with you as a first rate experience and meal.

Re: “Halfway there

I loved Craftwood up until about 7 years ago. I believe that's when they started changing chefs.

I had 2 bad meals there after that and have never been back. Same observations- meats were dried out.

The whole point of that place are the wild meats. Too bad. Where does one go to take out of towners for a unique CO experience now?

Re: “We eat again

My family and I used to love eating here regularly for the past 10 years under several new owners, however the most recent new owners were EXTREMELY disrespectful and rude to me and my entire family. We are RETIRED military, therefore did not get the 10% off, but pulled out our cell phone to check in on facebook for the 10% discount instead...not only did we not get the 10% discount, but one of the new owners said we were annoying him! Very unprofessional....will NOT be eating here again until new owners take over this place.

Re: “Garden sate

Tried NJs twice now, once last week and again today, this time to redeem a coupon for a few free slices due to the mishap from last week's visit. Today was much better. The slice of sausage pizza tasted like they had actually recently taken it out of the oven unlike the first visit's luke warm, kinda stale slice.

Here's my love/hate list:


The color scheme, pretty much an eyesore. Red and green stripes? Terrible.

Why New Jersey pizza instead of New York? Who thinks of NJ style pizza over NY style?

Service subpar. I'm all for grungy looking kids running a pizza place, but there needs to be a little more organization, communication and promptness.

Too many items on the menu. Just stick to the pizza and apparently the strombolis!


The concept. Their is a definite need for a pizza-by-the-slice spot downtown.


There's really no need to go beyond pizza and few other items like salad and maybe bread sticks and, again, apparently strombolis. But if I'm in the mood for a pasta this is not the place. They need to cater to the quick-stop business lunch and CC crowd during the day and the inebriated kids walking by needing something cheap to eat at night. The quality is good enough to warrant the low price. If I want to have a nice sit down pizza experience I'll go across the street to IlVicino's. Don't try to compete with them, differentiate by attracting the pizza-by-the-slice crowd.
