Re: “KVOR 740

I listened to him for awhile, but got sick of his incredibly whiny voice. Worse than that is his self-righteous demeanor. Yes, ala Beck, Hannity and Limbaugh. If that's who you like to listen to, he's your man. And for some reason, he feels the need to remind listeners of his past achievements and credentials.

Re: “Maggie's Farm - Manitou

Maggie's Farm is a farce of diabolical proportions, a place that apparently takes pride in ruining the fun of buying MJ legally. You can expect awful service, unbelievable prices, and some butthurt brought about by waiting on cheap chairs (like the lemming that you are).

Once let inside the actual gazing area, I was given a sob story by the 'budtender' about how he didn't know what dabbing would do this health over another two decades. OH NO! :'( Then I was treated to an overpriced candy bar that was barely acceptable as either snack or medicine.

I'm just going to assume the candy was made incredibly weak out of fear that it would find its way into the hands of kids over Halloween.

If you're a local or tourist looking for 420, do anything but go to Maggie's Farm; check Craigslist, or even resort to asking homeless people where the weed is, ANYTHING but this dump.

Re: “Maggie's Farm - Component Drive

the worst bud i've seen in years. i'd had more complaints about Maggie's farm than any other center in the last 12 months. bad bud. bad service. bad business.

most of my clients compare the experience of Maggie's farm to a trip to the DMV.

they have the only RMJ in El Paso county; but to offer swag bud and treat people like cattle and then charge them like tourist is not my idea of a good business model.

Re: “Fat Daddy's Louisiana BBQ

I would expect way more from a local business owner. This place is repeatedly bouncing payroll checks and the owner Richard is indifferent, and belligerent when confronted about it.

Re: “Heuberger Motors

Something very unexplainable is going on with this Company. First, we were able to select a vehicle we desire pretty quickly from the website. The website appears to be a generally developed site by Subaru to all of its deals.

At first, when we called the Sales Reps, well you know, they were Sales Reps. A price was tentatively agreed upon. However, once they realized it was going to be a cash deal, the company became very toned and hostile, and created some of the most unusual excuses NOT to sell a car. Yes, cash in hand, and they would not sell a vehicle for the following reasons:

1. It wanted an additional $1000.00, in advance of the full cost of the vehicle, which they, 'might' return. The company refused to describe what the terms of the $1000.00 was for.

2. It wanted me to fill-out a credit application for its own use.

3. It wanted us to go through a credit background check.

What the $(%*. So, I properly and timely escalated, what I thought was a misunderstanding: A car company did not want to sell a vehicle to a fully-paid out the door vehicle to a customer. I called Subaru of North America, and they basically told me, they did not care what happened to the vehicle once they handed it over to the various sales store. Wow ! ! !

I received a confirmed email and text from both internet sales director and car sales director, that their policy of discriminately asking for money and full credit checks, and background checks was the way they do business and if I do not like it, the deal was canceled. I countered and offered them to go through a credit check of mine, a security check and make a deposit to me, to secure until delivery of the vehicle. They declined, and said no more business.

I do not care what kind of business they have sold to other people on what or who they are. I have never ever heard of a car company turning down a cash deal, until this one. There is only one reason I can foresee why they did it. They do not make enough money on a cash deal and would rather use those vehicles and practices to leverage many more unwitting people. Buyer be ware. Nonetheless, this terrible decision and experience by both Subaru (which I really respected) and its sales businesses has all but ensured I will not ever consider Subaru again.

Re: “Academy Riding Stables

I wish there was a rating below one star, because that is what this establishment, Academy Riding Stables and WALTER (manager) deserves. Nathan on the other hand was wonderful! My niece has disabilities, but rides all the time. I was on the phone with this company for 20 minutes explaining my niece's needs and I was assured those needs would be met. Upon arrival I learned differently. My niece was so excited, she just couldn't wait! And so was I!! The manager was rude, I explained who I spoke with and the special accommodations I was promised ( a lead for my niece, nothing more). He didn't believe a word I said. He said he was told nothing about it and HE was the manager!!!! He would not put a person with my niece. I could not ride beside her. However he assured me he would be leading the ride and she would be right behind him, so he would keep an eye on her. Nathan helped my niece on her horse and was great! Walter yelled at him to get that horse moving before my niece, horse or Nathan were ready. Walter did not go on the ride, my niece was listing off the saddle, but I was told not to ride beside her so even I was not allowed to help her. She almost fell off the horse. I stopped the ride and we left. Walter kept telling me this is not a therapeutic stable, good because we didn't need a therapeutic stable. Walter and the person at the entrance were extremely rude and made sure the ride didn't happen because of her disabilities. We will be notifying the ADA and hope they come down hard on Walter and his assistant. He should be called Mr Discrimination!!! Please let this company know what you think of this incident!!
I too was treated poorly: I have ridden for over 30 years, and NEVER have I been asked to weigh in. I was 2 lbs over their weight limit. The front clerk loudly told Walter about it. (I was so happy everyone on the ride knew my weight) But good old Walter let me ride. That assistant did not agree, but I was still allowed to ride. I would not even recommend this place to my worst enemy. SHAME ON YOU WALTER!!! As it's said.......Karma is a @$%^h. I hope you consider taking Academy Riding Stables from your site.

Re: “Joey's Pizza

Disgusting kitchen! I really liked the pizza the first few times we ate there. The last time my family ate there will be the last and here's why.... We went in and got a table for six of us in the small dining area so it's hard to miss us. We ordered pizza and got our drinks and then we waited, and waited and waited. 45 minutes later after 8-10 customers had come in and got their take out orders we went to the counter and asked what was taking so long to find out they had lost our order even though we were the only customers sitting in the dining area. They re-did our order and promised to give us free dessert to make up for it. In the meantime my Granddaughter had to use the bathroom so they let my wife escort her through the kitchen. The kitchen was filthy and the back door was open letting in a lot of flies. The flies were everywhere. When she came back from the bathroom our pizza was there and we were already eating over an hour after we ordered or I would have left and demanded our money back after hearing about the kitchen filth. We never got our free dessert though we wouldn't have eaten it. No apology from management; they blamed everything on having been busy earlier and having several new employees.

Re: “Pueblo Viejo - Stetson Hills Blvd.

I will never eat there again. The margaritas are weak, taste like virgin margaritas.
The service was good and I am a fan of beef Fajitas, I like steak fajitas where you have strips of steak, the steak in their fajitas are all shriveled up and dry. Worst beef fajitas I have ever had! Do not ever eat at Pueblo Viejo on Stetson Hills, save your money and save your self from a big
disappointment!!!!

Re: “Burger King - S. Nevada

So ridiculously filthy, I couldn't believe it. They did appear to be understaffed, but the people working were in no hurry at all and seemed to be moving in slow motion. I will never go there again and would never ever recommend it. Even the counter where they give you your food looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. Disgusting.

Re: “Heart of Jerusalem CafĂ© - Austin Bluffs

So this is not my first trip to Heart of J or my first time to this particular Heart of J. In the past I've ranted and raved about the food and the service but no more. The hummus and baba ghanoush didn't taste as good as what you can get from the grocery store. I'm a creature of habit, once I find something I like at a place it's hard to get me to change. I always get the lamb shawarma and it's always great but not this time. I'm not even sure what was on it was lamb the cucumber sauce seemed to have been replaced with mayo, the flat bread for dipping was hard as a rock. Lastly I always make it a point to get Turkish Coffee and even this was a major disappointment, watery, little taste and all grounds. Over the past 6 months or so I've been here at least 8 or 9 times and I live in Parker, never again. Very disappointed!

Re: “Ruffrano's Hell's Kitchen Pizza

Very BAD service. Pre paid for the food deal (one slice,knots and drink). Waited about 30 minutes, then checked up with what was taking so long and they said just a few more minutes. 20 minutes later they said my order didn't exist. Asked for refund and they gave me a hard time. I left and counted my change the lady short changed me, so I went back in and she said that I had to pay for the drink cup! I asked to speak with the manager and he was very rude yelling at me in front of the customers! NEVER coming here again.
Side Note: Other people orders were also "Non existent". Very Disappointing.

Been here once before and had luke warm re heated pizza, not good.

Re: “Center for Aikido and Tang Soo Do Studies

What a crappy, power hungry school! The instructor prefers that his students bow down and worship him. No respect to the students. If you prefer visits to the E.R because the instructor doesn't understand the limitations of his students than by all means go ahead and train with them. What a joke of a school!

Re: “The Famous

I ate at the Famous last week...and finally have my strength back enough from being sick to say it was the absolute worst meal I have ever eaten out. What in the meal made me sick...I don't know, but it was all tough, tasteless, cold, and just bad.

The meat was the worst part...try the Texas Road House if you want a juicy, hot, nicely charred steak. The Famous sucks.

Re: “Marisol Therapeutics

Tried to shop at Marisol Theraputics on Jan 1, 2014 (the BIG day) and have never encountered a worse company. Utterly incompetent and callous to their customers, both medical marijuana users and recreational users. I'm never going back. And when they go out of business it'll be a public service.

Got there at 12:50 pm on January 1, the first day retail pot was legal in Colorado. Marisol got their license to sell recreational pot well in advance so they should have been ready for the influx of customers. I got in an outdoor line I estimate to be about 120 feet long, with I'm guessing 200 people. Though I couldn't see how many people were lined up in the store. I waited over 4 miserable hours in the cold and wind in a line that barely moved, until I got close enough to the store to look in the window and see why the line barely moved.

Marisol only had one cash register active. It appeared that they only had one employee waiting on the one person at a time that could be accommodated. A second register at a separate counter went unused until the occasional medical marijuana customer came along (more on that later). There were many more Marisol employees but they were standing around looking bored and doing nothing. If they were at all concerned with the hundreds of people who had been waiting hours and hours in the cold it wasn't apparent. I could see thru the window that there were around 75 people packed into the store looking furious.

From that point I was 15 feet away from the front door. It would have taken another hour to progress to the front door, and--according to the store security guard and a man in front of me who gave up and left once he finally got into the store after 5 hours--another 2 to 3 hours until I could have bought something. Once I realized that the excessive wait was due to the store's incompetence and lack of planning I decided that I was unwilling to give this crummy company a penny of my money so I left. I was exhausted from the 4+ hour wait. Still I left not because of exhaustion or the additional wait, but because I decided to boycott Marisol.

But wait there's more. I just wanted to buy recreational pot. Marisol made their customers for medical marijuana wait outdoors in the same freezing eternal line. I was standing beside a cancer sufferer who had to keep getting out of line to puke. And after 4 hours a man about 15 feet in front of me, almost to the front door, complained to an employee and at that point was finally allowed to get out of line and go to the medical counter to get what he needed. He was clearly pissed, and for good reason.

Marisol's callousness was just appalling. They could have had signs up directing medical patients to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have had employees come outside to announce that medical customers could go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers telling medical customers to go directly inside to the medical counter. They could have distributed flyers with their product selection so people could make their choices in line and decide what else to get if the store ran out of some products. They could have done countless things to be more efficient and less callous, but they didn't bother. Hell, some shops even had propane heaters so the people outdoors in line could be less miserable. Not Marisol. Nope. Screw the customers.

A lot of people around me left in disgust without ever getting to buy anything after we got a look into the store and realized that there was only one employee running one cash register. A lot more people vowed never to patronize Marisol again. I'm one of those people.

Re: “P.F. Chang's

P.F. Chang's restaurant in Colorado Springs used to be great in service, atmosphere, and food but it's going downhill fast. It's has always been a bit pricey compared to other Chinese restaurants. The food is now WAY over salted/seasoned with smaller portions at a higher price too! The service is now sub-par at best and if need anything more than one drink refill or your check good-luck in getting service. And lastly, the atmosphere is now a trendy stuck-up upper-middle class snobs hang-out...too bad! And yes, if you're looking for an authentic Chinese meal then P.F. Chang's is NOT the place to go!
