Alan...how come you posted on a place that is closed...how weird
The beer is warm and too cute for serious beer people...veggi heads with dreadlocks would love this place, but how many of those are in Colorado Springs...most unwelcoming.
Go to Dickie's two doors down, have a good BBQ and a Shinerbock is my recommendation.
I have not had a bad experience here yet and I've been here about a dozen times. Quick service, and very reasonable prices and large amounts of food. The crab rangoon is delicious, and I love their sweet and sour sauce. Noodle and curry dishes great, but i feel they spice down to what you ask. Last time I asked for thai hot and it didn't seem super crazy hot and spicy.
I would not call this an authentic Cajun eatery, but it isn't a bad place to go if you have time before your movie starts in the same strip mall. I've been here three times, and it's not great, but it'll do. The green chili is really good, but really spicy and I would say get a bowl for dinner. The alligator bites were VERY greasy, I'm not sure if that is normally how alligator tastes. I was not a fan of the red beans and rice- the beans were undercooked to my liking. The gumbo was good- not great, but does in a pinch. Great service even in a "seat yourself" venue.
Excellent! The fried seafood was unbelievably good. They are now open in their new location cited at the top of this message ... we just ate there this month (Oct 2012).
Horrible service. Been here twice, and both times I was ignored by the waitstaff for over 15 minutes. Would have left but was meeting people there. Took forever to get food out. The food is good- if you're into local, organic, vegetarian stuff, but the prices are a bit steep and the portions are very small. Was shocked by seitan gyro did not come with fries for the price.
So you park your car, then you walk across the field and then you can walk up to the top of the razorback ridge. Once there you get a great view of the mountains to the west but watch out, it feels like a cliff.
the best seafood in town is at Bonefish...the menu on this place's bad website isn't even tempting...and no lobster roll is listed.
Who wrote this review? Did they even go to the restaurant?
Jim's is simply Bad Ass! Very welcoming! Regulars bar! Become one! Bar Staff ranges from sexy smart ass, to cute and tall, to ripe ole saxy. Great place because..."Sometime you want to go, where everybody knows your name. And they're always glad you came. You wanna be where you can see, troubles are all the same. You wanna go where everybody knows your name!!!!"
Always a tough choice to go here or not. By far the best seafood in the springs. However it will be an hour before you get your food, and the waitstaff will not check on you unless prompted. If Mr. English would hire a real staff instead of relying on family this place would take off.
A popular spot for public officials means we are paying for it without even eating there...
Absolutely terrible, ordered tacos and quesadillas over the phone, waiter said "see you in 5 minutes" and hung up without giving me my total. Got there and my food was already waiting on the counter, staff seemed friendly enough I even left a 25% tip. got home (6-7 mins later) tacos were so soggy that they fell apart, looked like they were reheated in microwave, and tasted horrible, and not only were the quesadillas soggy, I asked for plain and they gave me regular, and chicken was lowest grade I've ever seen, similar to the tasteless pink chunks you get in off brand chicken noodle soup. We tried to eat it, but it tasted too bad. Taco bell is 10 times better than this garbage and that is saying a lot.
Absolutely great mexican food!! Try Combo #5 with verde sauce to get a taste of everything. They also have the best dessert i've ever had, a cheesecake chimichanga with cinnamon and honey. The sopapillas are awesome as well. When ever friends come to town this is the restaurant we go to.

Thanks Linda, it's been fixed.
Urban Peak is NOT in Old Colorado City, but just east of Cimarron, downtown near The Cottonwood Center for the Arts, Vallejo's Mexican Restaurant and Mardosz Fine Arts.
Love this center! The staff is super helpful and always so cheerful! I wont shop anywhere else. Blue cheese, headband, and super lemon haze are some of my favorites! The growers of this center are masters of their trade and the manager here is such a sweet girl, a great conversationalist who is always happy to help explain legalities and paperwork. Also TJ and Smiley are awesome! Smiley always knows the est way to discribe the effect of each strain and TJ can tell you about all the edibles in detail.
The place sucks!
i would like to highley recommend luther and the boys as the most family oriented despenary on this or any other planet. sorry,i can get carried away sometimes. but you gotta love these guys. god bless,john pouncey
