Re: “Springs Orleans

A "Diamond" in this truly rough Colorado Springs culinary scene. Chef Davis has manage to bring to this city something long needed and looked for. Southern/Cajun cuisine and the atmosphere/feel of dining in the French Quarter. My first experience at Springs Orleans, I almost forgot what city I was in for a bit, which is not a bad thing every once in a while. A wonderful place for a 3-4 course meal, or suits just as well for Beignets and Cafe Au Lait. If you happen to catch the musical talents of Thomas Dawson (Pianist for the Commodores usually there Thurs-Sat nights) the experience is taken to a whole other level. A wonderful dining experience.

Re: “Glad's Original Bar-B-Q

Glad's has the best bbq ribs,chicken, and pecan pie pie I've ever had. Their sides are also very tasty, especially the green beans and mac & cheese. Cornbread is tasty, but too crumbly. We try to go there at least once a month. The owner and his wife are very personable. Two things I'd like to see: discontinuing use of styrofoam plates and cups and plastic cutlery (due to their not degrading in landfills) I prefer eating from real dishes and glasses when I go to a restaurant. Also I'd be happy if they offered unsweet tea as well as their sweet tea. Despite these small glitches, we'll continue to come to Glad's!

Re: “La Baguette French Bakery-Café - Colorado

We love La Baguette on Chestnut. Breakfast and lunch have always been great, but now with their new dinner offering, we are thrilled. We recently took a guest there for dinner and had a superb meal with a top notch wine for a most reasonable price at a beautifully decorated restaurant. The only thing I'd change is to have authentic French cafe music in the evenings (such as some of the Putamayo CD's) The owner and his wife are always so gracious and friendly. We feel so fortunate to have this lovely place in our neighborhood.

Just got an enormous teriyaki chicken rice bowl from these guys for lunch. Ordered the "small" and it came in under $5! Chicken was flavorful, not too much sauce and was thrilled they had veggies in the bowl, too. Didn't notice anything veg on the menu but hope they'll do a teriyaki veggie bowl in the future if I request. There's NO reason I'd ever order the large. This was enough for 2 meals. Friendly, knowledgable staff and wow, the price!

Re: “Wyatt’s Pub & Grill

In the last week we have eaten here 4 times! Once was take out pizza and the rest was dine in. Everything i have had has been spot on and just flat out good food and plenty of it. The staff is very friendly and there is always someone checking on you to see if you need your drink refilled or anything else for that matter.

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

Well I must say that the pizza was wonderful. I'm from New York and I know Hell's Kitchen does a fine job in making pizza. The only negative is that they don't wear sanitary gloves when handling food. They handle money at the cash register and then take care of the next customer without washing their hands. I find this appalling in this day and age when we must be concerned with infections of all kinds.

Re: “Trinity Brewing Company

The beer is 5 stars. 5 stars for the house brews and 5 stars for the large variety of excellent guest brews. I always have a fovorite or two to drink and a new one to sample. Food os goof, not great. They are not trying to be a restaurant...they ae supplementing the beer. Service has been friendly.

Re: “The Golden Bee

It is fun and corny songs are part of why it is. A very authentic UK style pub with prices that won't kill too bad considering it's part of the Broadmoore.
Good food and a great atmosphere.

Re: “Jim's Neighborhood Lounge

Neighborhood Lounge says it all. This place is in the Cimarron Hills neighborhood on Peterson and Palmer Park in a little strip mall shopping center. Locals abound everyday and are generally very welcoming. Drink prices are very reasonable and the bartenders are very friendly.
Lunch specials are the norm Tuesday through Friday and are also priced right and full of homemade goodness. Open faced steak sandwich (a NY strip no less), meatloaf and the famous green chili smothered buritto.
A pool room with 3 tables and 3 dart boards (2 plastic and one steal tip).
Live music is only on occasion. Karaoke every Friday night though.
The crow is diverse as it ranges from construction worker to PHD.
Go there and feel welcome

Have eaten here several times and enjoyed it. The atmosphere is almost like an sparse bar (big screen included), and during the school year, filled with teens. The employees are friendly and the food is always prepared well. I've never received a "puck-ified" burger. While the chili-cheese fries are a little on the cafeteria-food side, the fries by themselves are crisp, thick and tasty. The textures in the chicken teriyaki bowl were perfect, and it wasn't drenches in the sauce. Even a small bowl is enough for a meal.

Re: “Red Martini

I have been to the Red Martini multiple times, and have ALWAYS had awesome service. The bartenders are great, always welcoming, remembering your name and previous conversations... like old friends, and are very knowledgeable about their mixology. I have taken lots of friends there and they always comment on what a great place it is. The entertainment isnt always stellar, but I go there for the drinks, so I'm good with that.

Quaint building (not a whole lot of parking) with a fun, eclectic interior consisting of dining spots and a shop; within easy walking distance of downtown Old Colorado. Both the seating and the items for sale feature a mixture of local and international items ranging from jewelry, hats and clothing to glass perfume bottles and hair clips.

Each table represents a region of the world, some being more whimsical than others. The larger tables make it easier to get all the goodies you want from the menu, and there are some excellent goodies. Be sure to use your bell, since the waitress tends to leave you be unless summoned (whether or not there are other people dining).

I've never had a bad scone (which pairs perfectly with the clotted cream and lemon curd), the tea selection is fantastic (owner personally travels around the world and brings back only the best), and the desserts are delectable. Some of the main course items leave a little to be desired, but that hasn't stopped me from going back (and leaving stuffed every time).

Unless you're wanting the high tea experience, which does require a reservation (typically a day or two in advance is perfect), just show up. However, calling ahead is recommended since the hours are limited and it is completely closed a couple days each week.

Bon appetit!

Re: “Alternative Medicine Colorado Springs

I'm going to preface the rest of this review by saying that this is my opinion and my opinion only. My opinion is based on over two decades of personal cannabis experience and pounding the pavement relentlessly looking for the best budz. I realize that it's different strokes for different folks and what works for me will not work for everyone else. My biggest pet peave? Customer Service, or the lack thereof.

It's been a while since I went to AMCS but what stands out in my memory was how nice they staff was. I didn't feel like they were hiding anything, or "pushing" anything. They answered my questions thoroughly and really took a lot of time with me as I browsed at all the strains that they had.

I scored a really nice green glass piece with a coupon from these guys, I even posted pics of it on my facebook page. LoL

If prices came down to reasonable and customary I would more than likely go back.

Piazza was wonderful and now it's gone. I don;t hold out a lot of hope for Wyatt’s Pub & Grill, but we'll see.

Re: “Zodiac Venue and Bar

I didn't put them down, indeed many people I love dearly are guests and staff there. I simply think that goth night can be more. The Zodiac is showing very strong potential to give just that. I'm writing a review of the club and it's perfectly appropriate to cite the competition.

This was meant to be more about the Zodiac than the Underground, but that being said, it's been a long time since The UG has really been drenched in the goth spirit. It's nice that it's there and has been for so long, but that doesn't mean it cannot nor should not be done better. Just because it's the oldest, doesn't mean it's the best or even a real measure of what a goth club should be.

Re: “Rancho Alegre/La Hacienda

Superb food and friendly service. I like that they have entrees that are authentic Mexican but not the usual burrito/taco/enchilada fare that's everywhere else. Try the pollo con arroz (chicken and rice), or any of the seafood offerings. Margaritas are fine but nothing to write home about; the usual selection of Mexican beers.
