Great show at the Royal Castle Lounge last night. The headliner, Captain Wails and the Harpoons, put on a good show. Also caught the warm up band, The Youthful Nothings. This is a really good up and coming Punk/Grunge band. Royal Castle Lounge is a nice venue! Highly recommend you stop by and listen to some good music!
This was The WORST experience i have ever witnessed in a biker bar ! I saw a bouncer wearing a Kilt Pick up a 5ft tall woman and carry her and drop her for NO reason I was watching the whole thing ! I own 2 such bars in Texas and I have seen & delt with alot of lawsuits ! This one is a huge liability & i hope the woman goes to authorities & a Attorney ! She should also fear for her safety ! I was a witness to it and called the police to let them know i was a witness and live out of state but will come back if needed to STOP this man !
I've eaten here several times. Pizzas, BBQ pork sandwich, street tacos, fried pickles, fresh potato chips, and local craft beers were all delicious. Service was friendly. Thank you for re-opening such a beautiful location by the creek. I look forward to being part of your growth.
We just had our wedding reception at Ritz Grill and I can't even begin to find words for the service, food, and the entire amazing experience. From the time we met Amberdawn and began scheduling our reception, to her incredible team that took care of our party on the night of our reception - everything was PERFECT! Riley and Christy (our bartender and server) were loved by everyone in our party! They took great care of everyone (and Christy makes GREAT drinks!), and above all else, all the kids that were in attendance were treated like royalty as they sat up at the bar, ordered their "drinks," and chatted with the bartenders. The food was delicious and loved by everyone, and Riley knew who had food allergies, and what they were before we even had a chance to confirm everything with him. If you are looking for a cool atmosphere, amazing food and service, and to top it off - AFFORDABLE - Ritz Grill is as great as it gets!
If there was a way to leave a zero star rating I would. They are extremely over priced, I have seen items in the store in horrible condition and not even cleaned being priced for what you can find it brand new at a store. They always switch locations and change the business name as soon as enough people realize they are being ripped off, the store has been the bargain bin and willies treasures previously. They dont offer refunds or anything but yet they dont check whether their items even work or not and quite frequently they dont work and you are stuck with what you bought not working. If you are considering being a vendor and selling things through their store I encourage you to reconsider. The owners wilma and sandra lynch feel that because they own the building they are entitled to take what they want from you. If you do become a vendor at this location I suggest keeping a constant inventory of your things to make sure everything that should be there is still there.
Look forward to meeting everyone at the "Against the Grain" opening reception this Friday at We Us Our Artist's Market. Spread the word and support the arts!!
The Rabbit Hole loves this place, I just wish they had bacon ;)
I've had nothing but good experiences with this (and it's sister store) for a few years now. Even with the changes, to staff and store, I have had a great time shopping here. I strongly suspect the bad reviews are rival stores/people with vested interest in them, because these people are f-ing amazing; they know their strains, effects, flat out honest about potency and quality. I can't even imagine someone having an experience like the negative reviews here describe. I've spent alot of time in that store, and I'm highly critical in general. I've never seen anything like what these bad reviews describe happen in these two stores. Do not get it twisted, I'm a genuine long time customer but I am in no way affiliated with this store, I got nothing for writing this, no one asked me to, no one told me this was here, I just found it and wanted to respond with some actual customer honesty to the BS negative reviews. -Sgt.

The best place. Period. I searched around too.
overheard the staff say they were gonna leave fake positive review's,and they will try and have the negative review's removed.

I was sitting on there couch waiting to be seen when a fellow customer sits next to me and states that there is a guy outside the building who is a violent sexual offender,the the guy that is sitting on the opposite couch stated how much he hates those types ......i agree with him at this point..........he talks about what he would to him....i still agree then..... he talks about how he used to be a enforcer for gang that would knock on someones door if he had to......im wondering why this guy that is so OUTSPOKEN yet he will not deal with this violent sexual offender who is right outside the building and he even know's the hotel the sexual offender is staying at...........this guy then starts saying how he cant do anything because it would be considering a hate crime (i think he said that because he knew i was starting to question his character/motive and i bet he talked about me after i left the room)........the counter girl did not like this and has started to spread rumours,Can someone please explain to her how REDFLAG"S work ,Please read the rest of the reviews and decide for yourself if you want to try marisol's
employee was so distracted by what was going on outside and on the waiting room couch that a expired product was sold to me ,i noticed it was expired when i tried to use it,i tried to explain it to them but i could no exchange or get a refund...even though they can see on my purchase history that this was the first time i ever bought that product
I came here for the first time and expected the worst after reading all the reviews. To my surprise I got excellent service. The cashier was very polite, explained the menu, recommended side dishes to go with our pizza because I had a large order for our company. While I was waiting I noticed how helpful he was, he took orders for customers to their car and when he was helping the cooks he always washed his hands first (that was super important to me). I was very satisfied and will always come back.
Great food and people!
Sidewalk's End Montessori is an absolutely fabulous school! The heart of every school is its teachers and Sidewalk's End's are top notch. Led by Ms. Lynne, who has won community awards as an outstanding teacher, the team of instructors is motivated, kind, intelligent, loving, and actively engaged in your child's learning. Together they have decades of teaching experience and many have Master's degrees in addition to special instruction on teaching/leading the Montessori method. My oldest children attended Sidewalk's End for the entire three years we lived in Colorado Springs. My oldest graduated from Sidewalk's End and attended our local elementary school this year. She excelled in every area, due to her great foundation established at Sidewalk's End. I could not be happier as she continues to be excited to go to school every day. My other daughter was lucky enough to continue at Sidewalk's End this year where she continues to grow and learn at her own pace and focusing on her areas of interest. She is happy, bright, and socially adjusted. She also loves going to school each day! As a military assignment takes us away from the area, this school will be one of the things I miss the most. I cannot say enough great things about Sidewalk's End. You will love it!
Didn't try the food, but I went with a friend just to split a pitcher of Margherita. We were up charged for top shelf liquor without requesting it. When we asked the waiter about it, he said all their pitchers are "gold" and cost $25 each. Ridiculous.
The food quality and the service is just not holding up to history of this place. People mention the wine list, but in this day and age, I can have any bottle of wine I want dropped at my door for 1/3 the price. If I'm going to pay the premium for the food and wine, I expect good service. Unfortunately, I believe the blue star has lost the edge in the service arena.
I was very impressed with this restaurant. I thought there food and service was first-rate. Also their bartender (I don't myself drink, so I don't know first-hand) seemed very skilled and earned the praises of the person I was with who *did* order a cocktail.

Speaking with the friendly staff, I learned that Doug started the original Weck's restaurants in ABQ, NM and if you liked the food there, (can you say PAPAS?) you'll love it here. Great food, great staff. Perfect combination and I wish them many many years of continued success. The only downside is that the restaurant isn't big enough to fit everyone lined up outside the doors! It's worth the wait regardless. Go. GO NOW! You won't be disappointed.
