We went there yesterday evening - a group of us (4-5) regularly visit local brewpubs. It was my 4th trip, and I really don't think any of the brews show much improvement. Would have liked to try the new menu, but there was only one person serving, and we weren't able to get his attention to order food. Sadly, probably the last time we'll give Whistle Pig a try.
Let the food trucks park in Acacia Park. They would help activate the park.
Regulations. Red tape. Bureaucrats and politicians stifling food providers. Fridays - Saturdays - 12 hours. Govt busybody BS! And parking meters belong to the City - not to brick & mortar restaurants - so why do food trucks need to "partner" with them? If food trucks are successful, expect the brick & mortars to put their own food trucks out on the streets. This will be a significant way to "revitalize" downtown. Lots of people don't want to eat at sit-down restaurants. They'd rather grab a quick lunch from a food truck and eat it sitting on a bench or planter provided by the City. Take a lesson from Denver's 16th street mall - close Tejon to vehicles and parking meters and open it to the public and food trucks.
This is awesome. I'm especially looking forward to the food trucks downtown. Austin has a busy downtown street they close down on Friday/Saturday nights and have tons of people, bars, and food trucks gathering. I could see this pushing Tejon in that direction.
Went to Great Storm Brewing last night and these guys were there. Super friendly, had a nice conversation with them. We shared spinach artichoke dip and sliders between 3 people. Demolished. Amber beer on tap was great too!
Hi, Kayla! Thanks for your readership. I'm glad you've had good experiences with this food truck I found the service here to be pleasant and helpful as well.
This review comes from our Dine & Dash section every week, we run three short reviews of old favorites or smaller new players in the Springs food scene. In the past, we've run all three as a single web feature, but with the roll-out of our new website, we've decided to give each Dine & Dash review its own space, for reader convenience. That said, each Dine & Dash review is still only around 150 words, so we have to pack a lot of information into very little space.
Hope that gives you a little more info on why it's written the way it is. Thanks again for reading the Indy!
meatloaf spiced perhaps with nutmeg (they don't share recipes) next to sauted kale with bacon and peppery mashed potatoes Very good
door left open made it cold
stayed open past hours since customers came in
Is that really how you end a review? Lol
MY opinion is this with out the odd quick ending.
It is delicious I have tried almost every roll they have some needing a little more seasoning etc but not too much more.
They are extremely polite, there service is fast & they even bring my food to car when done :) which is a win for me as I am 8 & half months pregnant!
There pizza rolls my daughter loves :) every time we drive by she yells rolls mommy:) lol. for two young men they are doing amazing!
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! I WOULD LOVE TO SEE EVEN MORE VARIETY IN THE NEXT MONTHS OR SO ON :)
I have not been here it really looks good to go but been so busy. I'M thinking to take my wife there one of these day
I've been saying it for a long time... Dragon Gate for Strong Mayor!!!!!!!
Thirty plus years of consistent, solid food.
And a big plus is their willingness to customize... try requesting the egg foo yung with no cornstarch!!!
I adore Dragon Gate... I'd say in thirty years I could count on one hand the number of times it was disappointing.
I wish the article mentioned that coquettes bistro & bakery is moving to 616 S Tejon for a mid April opening. It is NOT closing.
They look delish! I can't wait to have one.. congratulations guys!
Just the best place in town for Carne asada tacos in the morning. A great place with friendly service. Giive this place a try and and you will become a regular.
Ate here this evening. As an Indian loving Englishman who grew up on curry and still eats it at least once a week, I'll accept that I'm rather a curry snob. Indus hit all the right notes. Very tasty, very affordable, very friendly staff and service. I would disagree with the review above only in so much as the Chicken Tikka Masala does have a really nice heat 'zing', but as everything's made home-made, perhaps we just caught it on a really good day! Definitely recommend checking this place out - it's these sort of eateries that COS needs more of. We'll be back for sure.
I have eaten here twice and it was amazing both times!!! My friends and I have actually had tingling lips from the spices (in the best way) in the spicy dishes so I'm not sure what the authorthor was referring to. Side note: grab a mango lassi for a breakfast drink to wake up to. Your welcome friends ;)
Sign me up! Nowhere near my downtown home, I'll happily drive to get healthy delicious Indian food...my favorite. Until they open their 2nd location downtown
I was thinking the same thing about the wage. We are members of the ymca and as soon as the election was over they said they had to raise the rates because of the increase in wages. What a bunch of BS. It's barely going up this next year. When I have checked their jobs online, this last year, I saw they are already paying most people around $9 an hour, so its not gonna hurt them. Cost of living has gone up a lot in the last 10 to 15 years, so should wages but companies just want to keep all the extra themselves.
