Re: “The Ritz, Golden Flame Hot Wings, Panino's Restaurant

I love Panino's! What's a total bummer is all three locations prepare the food differently. I live closest to the restaurant on Dale and Tejon and prefer to drive to the one on 8th Street. We did try the one out on Powers and got one of the salads we always get at the 8th Street location - spaghetti salad but with mostaccioli rather than the spaghetti noodles. Completely different salad and not that great either.

Re: “Barney's BBQ dishes up killer West-Texas barbecue

Mr. Swartzell, I would like to thank you for the outstanding review of Barney's bbq. You must know that a review like that is a great positive for a new business. And for that I am grateful. We will keep working at our craft. Our goal is to provide the best bbq in Colorado Springs. Again thank you.
Jack Fortune.

Re: “The Little Market lives again, and a Cambodian food truck launches

Hi James,
Totally understood. That's one of the challenges of us being a weekly paper — when news comes in on a Wed., Thurs., or Fri. and we're waiting to hit racks again on the following Wednesday. We'll often put up teasers on the blog ahead of time, and in this case, best I can say is I and the INDY had tweeted it late last week. Please follow us both on Twitter and Facebook and hopefully we'll get you the word ahead of time on the next event you're interested in.

Re: “The Little Market lives again, and a Cambodian food truck launches

Would have loved to know about the meeting on July 13th before the article was published on July 13th.

Re: “Whistle Pig Brewing blunders on the food and brew fronts

I would have to respectfully disagree from this review which seemed to me a bit mean spirited and a bit elitist in the writing. The smoked burger I just had tonight was great and the side of fries were amazing. I had the smokey porter (3 glasses worth). It was dark, smooth not to hard on my taste buds. (I'm not a big fan of hoppy beers). The smokey porter was a more stout version of what a guinness might be. The malt cider, I will agree, is middle of the road but overall, I would say the notion of the beers being "inferior" might be a little hyperbole. I have recommended this establishment to all my friends and I would recommend for all to try and figure it out for yourself. I like the "Pig" and plan on coming back again and again.

Re: “Trinity Brewing shows a mixed bag, clear priorities

Great review! You had me at, "It's very sessionable at 4.1 percent ABV, but who the hell can afford to session $7 pours?" Trinity has had some great beers, but Chilly Water (when in season) for example, is up to a $9 pour! High ABV, granted, but come on man! Trinity's motto is to "Kill the Pint Glass"...but I believe that is only to make more money on a 10 ounce, high dollar pour.

I say, go to Bristol where the $4.50 Pint Glass is alive and well...and very tasty.

Re: “Trinity Brewing shows a mixed bag, clear priorities

I thought he was moving to Denver years ago? Shoot, your buddy Dave relocated as he cared years ago.

LODO would find u laughable.

Still, I will say I love (though years ago now) the Belgians you had on tap. I hope you still do. Nothing like a DT draught which is so yummy.

I realize you don't recall me but I found you rude even some time ago when I could walk still at some beer outing in Old Colorado. Your saison, to me, was tasty. Still I could not even find the time to offer a smile and a hello since you were so uninspired but certainly not busy.

Haha! What a loser, Jason is! Good to see a review, though. I'm sure there's some tasty beer.

Re: “The Fiesta Grill serves up good times from scratch

The Taco truck comes to my work every Thursday. Everyone at the clinic, always counts on him being there! Me especially I love the food, George and his wife Sandra always take good care of me. I have told everyone you have to try it. I recomend this fiesta grill to all and everyone. - Vanessa

Re: “Pikes Perk, Abuela's Cuban, Fuzzy's Taco Shop

how about reviewing a restaurant worthy of eating at? for several weeks it has been food trucks or other locations not up to snuff. how about reviewing a few locations and having recommendation instead of the drivel you have been posting. thanks!

Re: “Bonny and Read elevates ocean fare downtown

Hmmm, they still have some way to go.... Hit or miss with the quality of their food.
It's more like try it to know you DON'T like it rather than you DO.

Re: “Quijote's, Black Bear Coffee, Steele Smokin

Quijote's was a huge disappointment. Service was horrible and the food not much better. They could not get anything right, green chile was so bland, in fact none of the tastes were memorable in any way. My two dining companions had the same opinion. Never going back. So my advice is... Don't go!!

Re: “Quijote's, Black Bear Coffee, Steele Smokin

Quijote's is an EXCELLENT place for Mexican food~~their ceviche is to die for as are their cucumber margaritas! Everything is reasonably priced and super-delicious!

Re: “Quijote's, Black Bear Coffee, Steele Smokin

Quijote's also has amazing green chile, which you can have smothering just about anything on the menu. Oh, and the shredded beef enchiladas - yum! Oh, and the tortas, and . . . Just GO!!!!

Re: “T-Byrd's new taco and tequila venture downtown

I was excited about this until I checked out their menu. Just 1 vegetarian option? :(

Re: “Whistle Pig Brewing blunders on the food and brew fronts

Very accurate!
Serving beer that they told you they screwed up with limited choices because they ran out of others. Slow to pour beer at that. Food smelled good however after drinking a piss I left.

Re: “Café Roma offers more affordable eats in historic Tejon building

Someone needs to proofread their menu: "dinning" (dining) and "Seasar" (Caesar). With a new/revamped eatery, it's the little things...

Re: “Meet Cockpit Craft Distillery; Bonny and Read finally ready to open

The local building folks need to get a clue these people require you to over-engineer everything now so costs have skyrocketed and it takes months to get anything accomplished.

Re: “Cacao Chemistry to reestablish a dessert bar downtown, Underground changes hands

Brewer's Republic and Underground are (were?) great places. However, I question their business practices based on changes made in the first few days/weeks of ownership. On day 1 they increased all drink prices by 8.25% by adding tax to the list price of any drinks. Food prices also increased. No more happy hour food specials (used to be half price pizza and appetizers until 6pm). No more buy 10 get 1 free drink cards. The lights in the Underground are like sun lamps turned to their highest levels and instead of music you get to listen to television shows. Good luck.
