Very good place. We had an excellent evening. Not sure what Fritz is talking about. The beer was great and so was the food.
We like their bbq. I love the pulled pork and the smoked turkey is great too. My husband likes the baked potato they cover with brisket. We've tried it all and like the meats. The kids usually get the smoked sausage. I'm not that thrilled with the sides. The baked beans are pretty good, but the rest I could leave it. There is always a line out the door here too.
I like this family friendly Sports bar/restaurant. Great burgers and sandwiches. The nachos are good. I like the Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich the best. My kids like it because it has cute basketball shaped TVs on the tables. They watch Nickelodeon while they eat their meal. Typical kids menu is fine. Kids eat free too! I wish the game room was bigger or had more interests for the younger kids. It's also a great place to meet friends for the game or happy hour after work. Great location too to meet before a Sky Sox game. The service sometimes can be slow with the wait staff.
Very friendly staff. Had more strains before new laws took effect making them grow most of their own product. Would like them to stay open later. Love their specials since I am not very strain loyal. The tree hugger side of me likes the glass jars they use to send product home. They offer me a drink every time I walk in the door and make it a point to remember atleast my first name. Always very clean.
Who wrote this review an alien! Come in on Friday nights and the locals are packing the restaurant. Do you want good food or urban stuckup. this place has good food and the locals keep coming back for more!
comfort food in the form of sandwiches!
I've been there several times -- and have always enjoyed the food and service. Evenings are always packed...doesn't matter which day of the week. It's definitely one of my top favorites. I understand why someone would consider it "flock mentality." But, it's good. That's it.
I'm way over 45 and I have been treated with great friendliness over the past 9 months by staff, except for one young guy who is gone. The choices are excellent They are professional about the business part so I don't worry that they wiill be shut down. They are also very helpful for newby growers and they usually have good clones. Stop by and see for yourself.
The perfect dive! Great food and fabulous service. The owner is a little nuts but is rarely there.
Love this place!!!
Try the "Margarita" pizza!
The buffet was great! Where else in Colorado are you going to get pastelles? or mufungo? The real deal. I have to agree that the service was slow. If you are in a rush this would not tbe the place to go. Other than this I give it 4 thumbs up!!
Totally delicious. Be sure to get the green papaya salad on your taco/burrito/bowl. They make their flour tortillas fresh. The braised pork is outstanding, as is the corn salsa. They make their own guacamole - none of that neon green paste that tries to pass.
Loved the food - truffle coated french fries, tempura fried bacon, tasty shrimps all with nice dipping sauces. The music was outstanding and the place was comfortable with an elegant, upscale vibe. Only complaint was the noise level in the room - lots of hard reflective surfaces and chatty youngsters.
My wife and I ate there last night and this summary of whats wrong with this place is the problem most small businesses have in getting started...I look at it like this my mother raised me on good home cooked italian food and it is all about the flavoring...I had the Eggplant and also sampled the meatballs and the tomatoes with mozz/basil....
I loved it the thing to remember here is you can go anywhere and get fast food or some places to have fine dining and you will pay either way for it heartburn and indegestion from fast food and pricy small portions from a fine dining establishment...
Dats Italian is like sitting down to my mothers table and her saying eat eat...JoAnn and Dennis treat you like you just came over to their house for a meal complete with the manners and hospitality of a family sit down...I do not know where Bryce is from but in my home town if you have the nerve to eat at my table and then complain about it you may find yourself in the alley behind the building with a broken leg...italian food is about eating and having family around and Dats Italian made us feel like family we will go back often...
Thanks for the experience
this is place is really cool it is small but the sound is amazing and the environment is all about the music a definate must visit...the venue focuses on only having 2 acts each night but the quality of enetertainment is top notch...no alcohol is served kleeping a true under age place at the front of its priorities...
The curry chicken salad sandwich and the Reuben are also mighty mighty tasty!
I was never a big fan of chimichangas, the server (Ruben) suggested one & it was fabulous. The deep fried tortilla was crispy and the flavor was awesome. The chicken tasted just like the one my mother makes. I have been there 4 times. My kids love the food. The Red and Green Chile are authentic Mexican dishes, they are full of flavor and it shows how much effort they put into cooking a great home made meal. The presentation of the dishes are beautiful, we had the chicken flautas appetizer and it came with the vibrant colors of the Mexican flag. You will not be disappointed, and their variety of margaritas is amazing. They have authentic margaritas that you will not find anywhere else.
First off I'd have to disagree with "livemusiclover" us Dj's at the Parrot are far from cheap and the worthless tripe that you refer to is not only years of experience, talent, and knowledge that the Dj's put into their sets, but also is what that downtown crowd on Fri & Sat nights come out to dance to. I've been the Resident Dj there for 3 years and check this out.... I also love live music - I've Dj'ed with several local bands such as Sanquine Addiction, ITUS, and others I love live music - the problem is a combo of different things - And we have tryed several things but it really comes down to the bands are not pulling the crowds like they use to. As sucky as that is to say but thats just what is going on. As far as the comment on our kitchen that has long since been any issues - We have a pimpin full Lunch and Dinner menu. I saw that last post and just had to say something to respond back to "livemusiclover" and to his comments on Thirsty Parrots Dj's - I am Dj Chris Diablo and I for one just the same as my counter part Dj Brandon Lee are Thirsty Parrot's Resident Dj's and we both spend alot of time and energy on our sets and our ability to remix cross genres (MASH-UP). Dj's such as ourself are just as much Live Music as a band is. I've been the Main Stage Resident Dj for the last 4 yrs. for "The South Park Music Tour" held in South Park/Fairplay, CO which is 3days-8stages-80bands and in Aug. for the upcoming "THC Music Festival" held in Alma, CO which is 3days-5stages-40bands - My point is I play with alot of different bands and what all of us are in it for the creation of music and the love for music - It just shows some peoples short-kut to thinking instead of opening their eyes and ears and seeing and hearing the artform that is djing. And as far as going downhill fast and we won't survive the summer of 2010 - Come check us out Every Fri- We got Dj Brandon Lee Downstairs mixing his Original Mash-ups along with every thing else....And Upstairs it's "The Dj Chris Diablo Show" W/ Me mixing years of my Original Mash-ups remixing all genres from all era's.......Then Every Sat - We Have Me Downstairs - mixing all genres and ALWAYS a BAND Upstairs......But come early if you want a table or a booth because it always ends up standing room only!!!!! Dj Chris Diablo
P.S. This was the first time I saw the second comment "ddiggler" thank you I love the positive feedback and support!!!
We were in on a Friday night; the place was bustling and the service was friendly and fast. The food was all good and, as the owner told us, it wasn't just one sort of sauce on five different items - everything was different. We'll go back again and try different dishes. The flavors were complex and different from Indian food - you shouldn't approach this restaurant with Indian food in mind, but of course some of the ingredients are similar.
I love it but quit ordering due to very slow delivery times and always getting cold pizza... it's just too expensive for that and I only live 5 blocks away... sad loss
