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.
Definitely one of my all time favorite restaurants in the Springs and the list is short.
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.
The new date for September is the 8th. See you there!
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.
"....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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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?
By some of these comments, it sounds like someone couldn't be happy anywhere. GMF is an awesome place, with some local government issues negatively impacting the local taven's business. It still is by far the best community in El Paso County to live to be able enjoy the natural surroundings with a populace of mostly great and friendly people.
A pit? You must live in one awesome place to make such a comment and since there's Tejon in your name, I am pretty certain that is far from true.
Maybe, and it seems pretty likely by your posts, you're just not a very likeable person. Don't blame GMF because you're not popular. Start with mouthwash, lower your voice some, try to engage in more pleasant conversation, and recognize that your life probably isn't anything to brag about.
Anyone else who isn't a killjoy, come to GMF, bring a designated driver and go 5 under the speed limit and enjoy a great community.
Gosh Randi, "... so that people like you don't come back." doesn't sound very friendly to me. I guess you're just friendly to people you agree with.
Randi...GMF is a pit, sort of a third world experience from the early '60. Anyone who didn't drop out of school in Jr High springs for the extra gas and goes to Vail or Breck.
