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: “New German food truck boils with beer; April brings big culinary tickets

Oh! How sweet! The time is just right for me to attend! Thank goodness for stumbling here. I should sign up now for a reservation on April 19th. Tickets are pretty pricey but I know that the dishes are worthwhile to consume.

Re: “The V Bar, Springs Bikini Bar, The Ute and the Yeti

So the food is awful, but there's half naked women to make up for it? Eh... not anywhere I would go by myself, with my girlfriend's, my sister, my mother, or my boyfriend. I might be going out on a limb here, but I suspect there isn't much of a female clientele? Sounds like the bikini bar is a place my ex and his friends would frequent to awkwardly snicker at scantily clad bomb shells and throw out lame pick up lines whilst jabbing each other in the ribs.

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: “Seeds Community Cafe, Wild Cider, Perkins Restaurant and Bakery

Hey rt mind sharing which pub?

Re: “Seeds Community Cafe, Wild Cider, Perkins Restaurant and Bakery

Cider in America is in full Renaissance. IIRC, it's actually the fastest growing segment of alcoholic drinks. It's well worth seeking out non-mass market ciders, although some are quite good. I got hooked on them a few years ago and am fortunate that a local pub carries a very large selection.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine, Carl's Jr., Red Dog Coffee

Agree with Ralph, our All Natural Burgers were best fast food burger to date.
Agree with Jah, Green Line Grill has an awesome burger and fries.
If Carl's is homophobic then I'll not darken their door again, same for Chik-Fil-A.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine, Carl's Jr., Red Dog Coffee

We had a coupon for 2 for 1 on the new "All Natural Burger." I could not justify paying full price, but what we had was as close to what they look like on TV as I've ever seen. The cheddar was real, the ground beef was lean and fresh tasting, the toppings were fresh and the bun was something a step up from a normal hamburger bun. I know nothing of Carl's Jr. politics, but for half price it was the best burger I have had from a fast food joint.

Re: “3 Hundred Days of Shine, Carl's Jr., Red Dog Coffee

Can't give Carl's Jr., or any company that actively hates on our homosexual brothers and sisters any of my dimes.
But nice try Carl's to jump on a bandwagon while still being a sexist, homophobic organization. Green Line Grill, Quijotes' Mexican Hamburger, Drifters, Short Stop, and BJ's Velvet Freeze are all much, much better alternatives than this hateful chain.

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.
