Thanks...these reviews are always of interest and worthy of directing us to new places to eat and hang out.
I'll be excited to try out The Parked Pierogi! I haven't had a real pierogi since I left Cleveland! Lol.
Thanks for the nice article and shout out!
So North end Bistro..."is meant to be a healthier alternative to the fast-food restaurants along the Fillmore corridor."
"...breakfast hours will bring comfort-food goodies like Krispy Kreme doughnuts, chicken-and-waffles and banana-cream pancakes..."
I really enjoyed eating at FaerieTales they have the best food and great deserts, you wont find any better in town!
I hope the folks that work at the airport are nicer and more accommodating than the woman who runs the Tejon store. We were so mistreated there this morning we went elsewhere and bought a different brand.

On the Local: 50 miles is pretty extreme. I think 100 miles would be more sensible. I am looking forward to checking it out.
Oops. That's Uchenna.
Ucnenna Ethiopian Restaurant at 2501 W. Colorado, supplied dinner to one of the evacuee shelters during the fire. I was there when the very gracious owner, Maya, and her family, were preparing the food.
The proposed Peak Public Market would be a wonderful asset for COS. As a born and raised Seattle gal, I know how Seattleites love and support the Pike Place Market. 30 years ago it was instrumental in the revitalization of the derelict downtown First Ave/Denny Regrade area and a public market near ATB Park can do the same for COS. Kudos to Mike Callicrate for this amazingly bright idea.
Great burgers, wraps, french fries and tater tots. The sweet potato fries are not so good (soggy, not much flavor - kind of taste freezer burnt). Overall, a VERY enjoyable place to eat and play ball. if you are a hard cider fan, their cider on tap is tasty!
Conscious Table great concept
but in co springs bad idea!!
Great things continue to "rise" from the hard work and dreams of the Gotta Love It! Bunch....Stay tuned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So happy to see something approaching culture growing in Colorado Springs, I plane to support Stir.
I dont often get the opportunity to order out but 11/9/11 I did and as I live across the street from this place we thought we'd give it a go and boy were we horribly disappointed! We ordered a Steak Burrito, Chicken Burrito and Steak Nachos and I have to tell you it was very disappointing! The meal centered around refried beans not fajitas! I would say it was 70% beans, 2% meat (very sad to find out!), 2% onions/peppers & 26% chips. The chips were not fresh and they were hard, they only included 1 small (very small) container of hot or mild sauce. The Nachos offered the same sad situation! Had to add my own salsa from home and jalapenos as that was not included. I would NOT recomment this place to anyone unless you want to pay a lot for some refried beans!
Friends went to Big Fat Greek Restaurant and had the experience from hell. After their description of the food, service and management, this place is on my NO NO list.
Spice Island was very tasty - loved it. We tried a bunch of different things and liked them all. Jerk pork, brown stew jerk pork, beef patties, codfish balls, pepper shrimp, and the delicious home-made cornbread and jam, plus the sides. I'd write a review in your restaurant guide but the restaurant isn't listed yet... The staff was all very friendly. We'll go back!
I'd definitely try Crave, but only if they used Ranch Foods Direct, or another hormone/antibiotic-free or grass fed beef. I assume the lamb is grass fed, but it would be nice if it was produced by some local folks.
If eating rabbit is offensive to you... simply don't eat it! There is a reason Elmer Fudd hunts the rabbit in cartoons.... Surprise!!! I think he plans to eat him!
