Thanks for the heads up Brad...
Had to wait over an hour for food and they only brought 2 of 6 dishes. Musician was singing right next to us and too loud. No breadsticks. Miserable to wait for food and then to not have it all come out. The woman in the kitchen was yelling at her staff. This place should be on Kitchen Nightmares. Just choose wisely and go somewhere else. THIS PLACE IS NOT WORTH YOUR TIME!
How rare...I have been eating at the Blue Star since it opened and have always had a first rate experience on every level.
The Blue Star and Marigold's are the two best places to eat in the City...just considerably better than any similarly priced places.
Importantly, the volume is high enough that the foot is always fresh...I am actually pretty stunned by the bad review. Maybe the hubby is allergic to sea bass.
My husband and I had been to blue star a handful of times since moving to the springs about a year ago. Friends of ours had talked it up and we really had seen nothing like it in Colorado Springs.
We were excited to bring my inlaws there when they came to visit for the first time. Everything seemed as usual when we first arrived, we had a table in the lounge area.
Things started going down hill when we got the appetizers. The cheese and meat plate only had one triangle of cheese and was nothing like I remember it being the last time we had ordered it. When one of our several waitresses (sounds nice until they repeat themselves and it becomes unorganized) came to clear our appetizer plates she rubbed the edge of a messy plate against my brother in laws sleeve leaving a sticky mess. We brushed that off pretty quickly though, especially after putting club soda on the spot...
Next thing I know my mother in law is sitting with her main course (salmon) in front of her and she's not touching it, I look at it and there are hairs under the salmon on her plate. When she told the waitress, the waitress offered to get her a new dinner and she comped the meal, but it just wasn't right that after the second mishap from the staff we didn't get a visit from the manager or any kind of sincere apology.
Worst part is next.... My husband woke up with TERRIBLE food poisoning the next day. He had the sea bass and no one else tried his dish. It was a violent case making for a not so great trip for his family. My husband was cooped up in our hotel in Denver all day Saturday and missed an excellent dinner in Boulder.
We are very disappointed in what a scam we fell for, this restaurant poses to be fine dining when really they are unorganized, unsanitary and unprofessional. We will not to recommending this restaurant to anyone in the future and will stay far away from it ourselves!
But the place is disorganized...
Eggs Benedict Tuscan style. Delicious!
good flavor, prices ok, but room was too cold, if want to make feel like in bahamas, warm it up
Sounds good after reading the Indy link and your review. Are you sure you are not a family member? Just kidding.
Happened to have eaten their yesterday...really fresh and good value besides being really good
These guys really would rather you go for breakfast to the place next door on Tejon street so they can sit our front and smoke.
The food is awful and certain things go off the menu, like hash browns, at lunch because it is too much trouble to cook on the grill with lots of pending orders.
Simply marvelous. Atmosphere, food, drinks, staff...one feels right at home.
Bought $40 in gift cards for them 2 years back when they had the powers location (which closed shortly after due to tax fraud). I went to the downtown location to use my gift cards and they tell me they are not the same restaurant. The back of the card clearly states the downtown address for use. Then they tell me it's because they devalued the cards due to not using them. I feel completely ripped off. Don't buy gift cards!!!
This is one place you need to try if you have not yet! The food is by far the best, and the owner is a great gentleman! Stop by now because you are missing out!
I don't trust any of this...I for one, will not be eating at this place. If they were truly this good they would not have to pull this flash mob posting campaign
When honest questions ensued wondering about the veracity of the majority (if not all) of the comments re Sancho's, there appeared no less than four responses from those same posters declaring hate as the reason for the posts. Come on people, what are you, in the third grade?
One cannot help but wonder if this is the best way to advertise a new restaurant.
Very bad in every way
I happened to stop about Four months ago,and I've been back three times a week since . Don't knock what you haven't tried. Sanchos has the best food in town!!! I'am not family, but I'am now a friend, Duane
Sanchos is the best thing to happen in this area. We love their food, especially the avacado pork burritos!!!!! I stop after work and order for dinner. Their tacos are to die for. Steve and his staff are super. It would be great if he could have an inside sit-down area for cold weather. We keep spreading the word.
Duane and Pat Helm
interesting turn of events...I always read Indy reviews before heading out...but this hi-jacking of a trustworthy system really undermines this tool for checking out local places to eat.
I was going to try this place tonight, but not now...I don't like being tricked and fooled with like this.
I bet it is just more melted American cheese whiz over grocery store flat bread.
The food might be fine but unless you get some reviews from people that aren't family and friends no one is going to take this seriously.
I would rethink this practice. I have run restaurants and marketing is key. This isn't marketing it's spamming and it will turn people off.
The fact all the family and friends only give 5 stars and there are no outside reviews will make me NOT eat here.
Indy, please go there and do a review.
Now place all those posts on Yelp next. Wait to see the blow back you will get.
