Just mentioned this to a friend who immediately regaled me with tales of rude treatment and whacko bad beer...the verdict is in.
Had to wait over an hour for food and they only brought 2 of 6 dishes. Musician was singing right next to us and too loud. No breadsticks. Miserable to wait for food and then to not have it all come out. The woman in the kitchen was yelling at her staff. This place should be on Kitchen Nightmares. Just choose wisely and go somewhere else. THIS PLACE IS NOT WORTH YOUR TIME!
These guys really would rather you go for breakfast to the place next door on Tejon street so they can sit our front and smoke.
The food is awful and certain things go off the menu, like hash browns, at lunch because it is too much trouble to cook on the grill with lots of pending orders.
Bought $40 in gift cards for them 2 years back when they had the powers location (which closed shortly after due to tax fraud). I went to the downtown location to use my gift cards and they tell me they are not the same restaurant. The back of the card clearly states the downtown address for use. Then they tell me it's because they devalued the cards due to not using them. I feel completely ripped off. Don't buy gift cards!!!
Terrible!! My family and I ate there two days ago and the food was old and dry. Everything was cold and and rubbery. The day after we dined there, my daughter and I got sick.
Praise the Lord, and pass the pepto
The food might have been alright if it wasn't for the bug crawling through it. Tried to complain and the female manager/owner yelled and me and was incredibly rude. I wont ever set foot in that place again.
Heard good things about King's Chef and decided to pay a visit the other night. Had a burrito that was insanely bad. Overcooked eggs, burnt potatoes and spongy oily meat. It was truly fucking disgusting. 2 bites was all I could take. I told the waitress how bad it was and she "well, that's too fucking bad, huh?" Really? This is how staff speaks to customers?? This place truly does suck. It sucks in the worst way and I will never be back. Definitely NOT RECOMMENDED.
the best seafood in town is at Bonefish...the menu on this place's bad website isn't even tempting...and no lobster roll is listed.
Who wrote this review? Did they even go to the restaurant?
Absolutely terrible, ordered tacos and quesadillas over the phone, waiter said "see you in 5 minutes" and hung up without giving me my total. Got there and my food was already waiting on the counter, staff seemed friendly enough I even left a 25% tip. got home (6-7 mins later) tacos were so soggy that they fell apart, looked like they were reheated in microwave, and tasted horrible, and not only were the quesadillas soggy, I asked for plain and they gave me regular, and chicken was lowest grade I've ever seen, similar to the tasteless pink chunks you get in off brand chicken noodle soup. We tried to eat it, but it tasted too bad. Taco bell is 10 times better than this garbage and that is saying a lot.
Too bad you have to share your food with all the flies...
This place is the last place I would go for ice cream. Everything behind the glass counter looks past it's expiration date.
That's not as bad as the flavors...they mix two good flavors, like butter pecan with Oreo cookies...yuk.
It costs an extra dollar to put your four dollar single scoop into a cone instead of a cup with a small plastic spoon.
Interestingly, if you watch folks coming in, more folks check the scene and leave without ordering, than actually order and leave with a cup or come.
My family and I used to love eating here regularly for the past 10 years under several new owners, love the food, however the most recent new owners were EXTREMELY disrespectful and rude to me and my entire family. We are RETIRED military, therefore did not get the 10% off, but pulled out our cell phone to check in on facebook for the 10% discount instead...not only did we not get the 10% discount, but one of the new owners said we were annoying him! Very unprofessional....will NOT be eating here again until new owners take over this place.
Love their pizza but BEWARE, their location on North Academy has closed, it still takes phone calls but they are redirected to their Powers location, which THEY DO NOT TELL YOU, and you end up DRIVING AN HOUR to get the pizza. Will never be their customer again!
One of the worst bars or restaurants in Colorado Springs hands down. It's like The Golden Cue (in terms of potential violence of death) except 10 times (which makes for a harder time escaping) smaller with way less people (meaning you'll most likely see your killer coming.)
How do I dislike thee, let me count the ways. The loud colors, the interior and exterior doesn't look bad, but the music was weak, there wasn't a bartender behind the bar, they were playing pool about 10 ft away- had to wait for them to get my order in. I thought this place was owned by authentic Jamaican owner(s) but judging from the music, not! Is it roomy, heck no. I've seen bedrooms bigger than this place. There's a dart board, a pool table, and about 10 tables and chairs. That's it, you've just seen the entire place. Not even going to get into the food. Let's just say I've had far better food from the taco truck on airport rd in the evenings.
I agree w/ the above ratings, The Barnes location recently re-opened due to a kitchen fire, and since then, the pizza bites. I once loved them especially when I requested they over cook it by 5 mins, making the outside crust dark and crispy, but Yuck to them now. They should have tried to save the seasoned oven, the new one does nothing for the taste. JMHO.
Awful...had to take my pizza back and cook it myself
If I could possibly rate them lower, believe me, I would. You know, for New York style pizza, they used to be alright. They also used to have tolerable prices. But, I made the mistake of listening to my loving wife and ordered 2 pizzas from them last night. A cheese and their Chicken Hot Wing pizza. Just the Chicken one was $20 alone!!!!! And believe me when I say that it wasn't worth it... It was thinner than paper. Barely any toppings and the crust was so dense that I had to take a break because my jaw was tired. It was ridiculous. They charge $14 for just a cheese pizza!!!!! Come on!!!!!! Then to top it off, gouge me with a $2.50 for delivery? Man..... I wish I could roll back time and make a better decision.
DO NOT ORDER HERE!!!! Go with Blackjack Pizza. They have changed so dramatically that I am amazed. Great flavor, super prices, and I always have plenty of leftovers. We had none with Borriello's paper thin pizza.
I have eatin at this place and with the horrible service and food not up to even bar standards, they need help. They had a chef and new manager in the summer that had great ideas and service track to improve it, but the owner let them go and fast. Hired some guy that was let go too. How about we let the owner go and save this place!!! HIRE BACK THE HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM FROM SUMMER. How bad great place to be.
