Re: “The Airplane Restaurant

They serve absolute garbage in there. I would never ever waste my time or money there again... ever! The only positive thing I can say is they do sit you at a table, in chairs. Although I'm surprised they don't just toss the "Food" on the floor to complete the presentation.

Re: “Borriello Brothers - 8th

If you want a manager to say FUCK YOU and that you are a BITCH go to Borriello Brothers New York Pizza. These are the most uncouth people I have ever met. Better off at Papa Murphy's or Domino's the management won't even give you a call back after 8 phone calls to them. My $60-$100 a month well spent somewhere else. They don't care about their business because they have so many locations bringing in the $. Hope they fail sooner than later.

Re: “Gasoline Alley

WARNING!!!! Gasoline Ally practices identity theft!!!!!!

I went here and spent about $40 on drinks. When I payed with a credit card they asked to see my driver's licence and wrote down all my personal information on the credit card receipt along with my credit card number. The next day my crdit card company was calling me with a questionable charge on my card for $1000 dollars!!! Do not go to this place unless you want to be robed

Re: “Colorado Mountain Brewery

The service the night we went was OK. We had to wait, it was busy. Lost our appetizers, they had to comp them. I ordered a burger medium. It was hockey puck hard, not well done, over done for any one. This is what happens when you take short cuts and serve frozen meat. $10-$12 for frozen burgers, never again. Only six beers. ?? The two I had were less than impressive, actually bad. I stopped drinking. A friend ordered a salad. Dead bone dry flavorless chicken on top of one green and even less dressing. Several others ordered fish and chips. Most of it went right into the trash!! Gummy, improperly cooked. We had a large group. Many different palettes that night and ALL unanimously agreed this was our last visit. BTW what kind of service locations website offers no way to offer customers a way to provide feedback? One that doesn't listen........ This really gets 0 stars

Re: “Pizzeria Rustica

Made a reservation for 7:00pm got there at 6:55 and was told it will take 15 minutes. Waited 50 minutes with no updates and was not offered any drinks while waiting. We only saw the host three times for just a few seconds during our 50 minute wait to inform other people of a 15 minute wait. We left after 50 minutes. Terrible handling of reservations and waiting customers.

Re: “MacKenzie's Chop House

We ordered two prime NY strips at approx 40 bucks each. Very disappointed with the quality and did not even finish. The manager did take some $$ off the bill. Wines were good...

Re: “Nawlins BarBQ and Seafood

My family and I recently went to the movies (Cinema Pt.) but had some time to waste so we went for a quick lunch at Nawlins next door. I should have left after my first impression; dirty floors, dirty tables, and stank smell. We sat ourselves at the cleanest table we could find (still pretty gross) and waited for our waitress. We ordered our food and it came out, I was excited to try alligator and my softshell crab. I asked the waitress when ordering why the crab was cheaper than the shrimp or other fried appetizers, she replied "dunno" but stated she tried it and it was good. When it showed up there was 1 tiny shriveled crab on a bed of undercooked fries. The alligator bites were tasteless and hushpuppys were hard as rocks and cold. Much like the earlier commenter my daughter had 1 chicken nugget and told us she was done (old grease funny smell). Oh btw, when the waitress brought out our food she failed to bring silverware/napkins. When they showed up the napkins were soiled with dried food and the silverware was foggy (not clean). I've spent a lot of time in Biloxi and New Orleans, but I gotta say this place brought back zero memories of the wonderful food I experienced there. After the Gazette and the Indy did reviews on the Falcon location for Nawlins I must admit I was excited to try this place, but left disappointed (must blame the management for these conditions).

Re: “King's Chef Diner - Bijou

This place is turning into quite a royal joke, and it deserves a greasy death. Went to eat here, and of course, was told they dont take a debit card for payment-but, but wait here it comes-we have an ATM inside the restaurant that our customers can get money from, and thats at the rate of $2.50 cents a pop for a withdrawal to pay for your meal. Lets all put our collective genuis' together, and guess who owns the ATM. Maybe the owner, or the owners business acquaintance? I could be wrong completely, but doubt it. If I am not, then the owner can step up to the plate (pun intended) and tell us who owns it-it's on their property I am sure they know.

Re: “Ritz Grill

Ritz Downtown - Blah. My chicken sandwich was significantly overcooked. My wife ordered the chicken and shrimp pasta. They forget to put in the shrimp! The waitress offered to give us a to go box with shrimp in it to make up for it. WTF!. No offer to reduce the bill for skipping the shrimp. Move on to a better restaurant folks!

Espresso was weak. Free Wifi but only one outlet in the entire joint attached to a power bar that was not plugged in.

Is it the altitude or what? I just read the Gazette's food section and saw King Chef and their nomination for Colorado's best breakfast in food net's magazine...
I am utterly appalled. How horrible is the Colorado palate that this greasy abomination slathered on a plate has Colorado natives raving? Well i say shame on you Colorado Springs. How can you let this represent us as a whole when there is so much better out there? I mean even a national corporation can produce better slop, are we feeding a bunch of brainwashed easily impressed pigs? Or are we feeding the proud distinguished citizens of Colorado?
All i see from this situation is that quantity overrides quality. for example i can cook up a bunch of burnt Russet potatoes and you people think I'm a professional chef. If I put my Heart and Soul into a dish that bursts with flavor yet is slightly small I'm nobody. You see Coloradans have been set into the corporate fling, Value.
If you can get more for your buck it wins awards, but if you can cook with outstanding ingredients and produce an outstanding product customers say "7.99 for a zucchini sandwich? well i can get more elsewhere..." The main point i bring to you is this.... YOU COLORADO, have lost your love of flavor,impressive ingredients, and bold presentation. An since have given in to a family sized platter of flavorless mush,over-spicy chili, and burnt over buttered potatoes, because its more food for less money. I can out-cook King Chef,and Nosh and i can prove it, so i say shame on you Colorado Springs,for sacrificing your palates to save money.
Sincerely, The Colorado guru of flavor
CHEF Jesse Davenport

Re: “Jack Quinn Irish Alehouse & Pub

The last time some friends and I went here the serves was the worst! We sat down and waited for a wait person. The place wasn’t very crowded. We sat and waited and waited. Finally I got up and ordered drinks at the bar. Two of the people I was with got up and went across the street and ate at Jimmy John’s. I asked a waiter walking by for help and he said it wasn’t his area. Finally a women came by to wait on us, my friend said that would be nice because we had been waiting for some time. She said that wasn’t possible! ? Our other friends returned from Jimmy John’s just as we were given menus. We ordered and wait a while for our food. We were not offered another drink. I asked to talk to the manager and was told by the first waiter he was busy. We paid and walked out the front door. We were than told by someone else that the manager was standing out front. I told him of our experience, to which he said that we should of talked to him. He then told me that someone had said that I had yield at one of the waitress, which is pure fiction, and if I had why didn’t he intervene at that point? My friends and I are all in our 40’s and 50’s, one is an ex police officer. I have enjoyed many and evening at Quinns, and have played music there before. I and my friends will not be coming back!

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

5 friends and I picked Trinity to celebrate an upcoming event. We arrived by 6:30 and ended up on the couches in the back. At 8:45 she let us know it was last call, we asked for a few waters and the bill. As she drops off the bill the very drunk owner tells us we are closing, you have to go. We said, yes, we are just paying our bill. He told us we had 10 minutes. Less than five minutes later he comes back and says, get up now. Get up. Leave. We said we were just waiting for the credit cards, we would gladly leave when we get those back. He said to wait out front. We denied that request and decided to wait right where we were . We asked him why we were being kicked out as the restaurant was still 1/3 full with patrons. He said we offended him but refused to tell us how. How can we possibly have offended him? Before that point, he had not even come to the back where we were sitting. Six respectable, 30-45 year old moms, we had all gotten together earlier that day....at the elementary school PTO meeting. Yeah, clearly we "offended" him.

Stay away from Trinity Brewing and the owner with the dreadlocked beard, he admitted his is a jacka** when he drinks. It is true. We have seen it. Can't wait until the next PTO meeting!

Not such a good experience. Owner(?) was not customer oriented. Had a line that moved one person in 10 minutes! Forgot my husband's order, couldn't count change and told us to stop adding to our order when we hadn't even finished it. Some people just left.

Re: “Craftwood Inn

burned, over-priced food and a very rude manager (dressed in wrinkled tshirt and pants) who argued with us in the middle of the dining room. Pathetic.

Re: “Edelweiss

These guys are just going through the motions. Ate there last night, with the following issues:

1. Food tastes canned, frozen and re-heated. Nasty greasy fried potatoes, something that was supposed to be a potato dumpling appeared to be more of the same stuffed into a mold and dumped onto the plates
2. Pricey for the type of meals and beverages served
3. Indifferent staff - did not get the main course I ordered, side dishes were not as advertised on menu
4. Badly in need of a renovation - musty

The overall impression is that none of the profits are going back into the business or staff.
