It has been a real ptomaine tavern for a couple of years now.
What happen to this place. The floors were covered with dirt, straws and looked like it has not been cleaned in months. Let alone, the pickles they served us, looked like they were frozen and tasted horrible. No one could eat them. The hamburger was running with grease and dripping out of the bun. Something tasted sour on the hamburger too. Not sure if it was the pickle, or catsup. Couldn't eat that side of the bun. Furthermore, the service was horrible. Not friendly at all. It was like, she didn't want to go out of her way for anything. Being a native of Colorado and have visited this place since it first started on Colorado Ave. I find this place very disheartening anymore. I will never go to this place again. Let alone, bring in out of town guests to this place. Local meat or not, the dirtiness, bad service and most of all, the way the food was prepared was shameful. This place needs a make over with everything. We visited this place on Saturday the 25th of May, 2013. The quality is just not there anymore. Sad really. I had not been there in almost a year and it has gotten a lot worse since then. The place seems like an old run down hamburger shop. Sorry but it does. If anyone would ever really look around that place. You will see it too. Sorry, I will never suggest this place to any of my out of town family and friends again. Not worth the embarrassment.
Ever since ownership changed, this place has been awful. The food and drinks are over priced and not to mention my wife got sick from the dessert. If you're really looking for a good sports bar to go to before the Sox game, go to Holy Cow, they're food is hotter, beer is colder and staff is prettier!
The bar is under new ownership and it's about to take The Springs by Storm with live entertainment and much more.
I went there to attend a fundraiser for a guy who has bone cancer. I am a biker and had leathers on of course, also a small swastika pin that was given me by a friend. My friend told me an uncle was owner of that pin and died on the Russian Front during WWII. I wear it so that I can tell people what our country is becoming should they ask. Triple Dickle guys refused to let me in. Someone might be offended they said. Yeah, I am offended. I went around the side of the building (you know, smokers pen) and gave 50 bucks to the guy running the fundraiser and split. Pathetic people running this bar. I was in there at Christmas prior to that and told jokes and stories. Had everybody laughing but that memory is tarnished now by narrow minds of the employees.
Oh, I see "Black Pussy" is playing! I am offended by that racist sounding band name. And it is racist even though they may think it is cute. Put on your white sheets and go to the Dribbling Dickel. It is a dump as well.
Great food from the kitchen, but the out front organization is a total failure.
They told me one time they had no seating available when there was only one table occupied...when I pointed that out they said that one of the wait staff didn't show up and they could not service the remaining tables.
This place, especially without a beer license (who eats curry without beer) will be vacating this space like every other eatery that has been here.
Smily's, at the same time, continues to flourish.
I purchased a groupon for this restaurant and went in the middle of the week at about 7 pm with my child and husband. It took almost 18 minutes to seat us even though we were the only ones standing there, 27 minutes to get us a menu, we had to waive somone down to take our drink orders, wave someone down again to take our food orders after waiting so long.... I was timing all of this as it really got ridiculous. The food was cold when we got it, was okay but curry out of a can at home would have been better, and the bell pepper in the curry still had the store sticker on it, cooked in with the curry. We left at 9 pm when they closed, which the meal should have taken 45 minutes at most. I would have left, had I not bought the groupon already. I have never not given a tip before, this was the first time I didn't give a tip :(
Do you sell the instructional dvd called dancing through time ..serpentine dance.
Its shows a group of ladies dancing in a belly dance version to Turbo tabla 4..Is there a studio in Ft Lauderdale Florida..?
Kevin the the folks at Bricks are the best! The place is incredibly clean, the food is delicious (try the reuben egg rolls) the drinks are strong and the customer service is incredible. The sound system is great and when the jukebox is playing it's loud enough to enjoy the music but not so loud you can't carry on a conversation. This is a GREAT neighborhood bar and a great place to hang out. Oh, the prices are right too with great drink and food specials every night of the week. They are open for lunch as well. Check it out!
Can't believe the changes, great atmosphere, drinks and food. Plenty of entertainment too. You need to come down and experience this new hotspot in Colorado Springs. Something for everyone.
The improvements to the building and the atmosphere since becoming Bricks has been a very welcomed change. The owner and staff are all extremely friendly and eager to make sure that your experience there is a good one. The new menu is phenomenal with my personal favorite being the Reuben Egg Rolls that you can only get at Bricks! Whether you are looking for good food, great drinks, a few games of pool, or just night life entertainment, Bricks is a great place to be.
Lots of improvements both inside and out. The owners and staff work very hard to keep everyone coming back again and again. If you are looking for a place that has something for everyone's taste, you need to check them out!
I wish I could get out more often so I could enjoy the great food and entertainment provided at Bricks Sports Bar & Grill. The new owner and staff are awsome and making improvements so folks can have a better experience while spending time there. I love to sing Karaoke and usually go on Wednesdays. Rick runs the show on Wednesday and I haven't heard a better sound system that really gives a singer more confidence because it projects the voice so well and Rick knows how to make adjustments that complement each individual singer. I encourage everyone to visit the Bar and find out what the weekly events are, I think you will be happy you did.
Well it used to be a great store until prices went sky high! Then I applied for a job there and met the arrogant, male shavanist pig that interviewed me and now I have an entirely different perspective of the place. I was asked questions like "are you married" and when he noticed my zip code on the application he said, "oh you live in the ritzy Broadmoor neighborhood!" I was appalled! He told me if I were hired it was my job to make the store money, not save the customers money by teaching them how to do something or sew. I would have to ask his permission on most everything. Maybe that's why the employee moral is so low! I know I sure wouldn't want to work for the man! Everything is so much cheaper at Wal Mart or Hancock Fabrics. And the people smile and help you.
Great place with great products. Probably best in town.
My experience was exquisite and I hope to repeat it. I was there Nov. 20 and whomever was "in the kitchen" rocked! Scallops! omg...The ambience is rich and the bill proves it. <3 the place for a nice date
If sushi is your thing and you want to wear yo bling, this is the place to see and be seen for the best of oriental dining! The sushi bar is extravagant, delicious, hospitable and friendly. Desert for me, last visit, was soft shell crab in some crazy magic sweet sauce! YUM Be there or be totally sushi dish square.
I would give 5 stars except for the service is not as reliable or respectful as it could be throughout the staff. Staff is older and assumes you know what you want and where to find it. They don't take kindly to having to walk around the store themselves. I hope I'm not being fair and this was just one person among them who displayed this lackadaisical attitude to a first time customer who plans to be a repeat one if it hounds you to death. lol STILL this is a phenomenal store as far as its content. Unique and well stocked.
Intimate venue for shows and a great place to see your friends. I saw Jackson Brown there in November standing room only, though I had great seats if not a little too close to the double doors, but near the stage.
The bar is open and life is good. Great place to attend any event!
I've made sure all my dates take me there! Why? Because Max makes me feel like a movie star. No matter how much time goes by, he always greets me by name and makes me feel special and welcome!
The rooms in this old building offer some privacy, while everyone feels free to meander about. Max the sous chef is also fun to talk to: you will find him in the back room behind the bar. That didn't sound right. It's his station.
Follow the little brick path to the door on the side of the building to find the bar and say hello to Max for me, either one.
