Re: “A Woodland Nightmare

The trouble is with the 60 to 80 percent closed etc because they went back to old habits or raised their prices too much it's hard to believe with mange mange they had a world. Class chef who obviously produced great food they extended his contract but he left probably because things were beyond his control food quality badly reduced to what was used before the owner seemed a nice lady who was carding too much because she had not been trained to all the jobs and trained as owner manager those things take years you can't pick it up in five mins, 9 out of ten businesses like that close in the first year even with exsperienced people good luck to all if your one of these closed restaurants go to buissness and cookery college you can go at any age learn and gain exsperiance then come back fighting

Re: “Mira Sol food truck serves pure fire

That's expensive considering they don't have a restaurant with overhead.

Re: “The Little Piazza Food Truck's lasagna sandwich isn't all that bad

I found the lasagna sandwich to be refreshingly different. The grill toasted bread added a new flavor to the lasagna. Adding the preserves worked for me even though I ate half of the sandwich without the preserves. I enjoy unique and creative food and this sandwich is a home run both counts. I will oder it everytine I catch up to Bill and Little Pazza.

The city needs to consider some fees on these food trucks to level the tax-related playing field with their brick and mortar counterparts.

That's too bad. Try Spice Island Grill instead!

Re: “Irie Rasta Caribbean Bar and Grill showing a tough start in Manitou Springs

Thanks for the honest, fair review of this place.

I'm from Florida originally, and I've had too much authentic Caribbean cuisine in south Florida and the Keys, so I won't try places like this unless it's reported to be off the wall good. Maybe they will improve!

Re: “Barnwood at Great Wolf Lodge focuses on local food, for a price

This place is a huge rip off!!! First they have you sign up through your email for these special quote on quote promotions and then when they do send you the promotion as they send you promotions for a family-size that is not yours even though they ask you how many is in your family when you sign up for the promotions. So I received a promotion for 139 99 specifically for our family when I went online to book it it said it was only available for 5 people even though our family is a family of 6. So I called guest services and guest services told me that they don't have all the specials and promotions and transferred me to the reservation line where I was on hold for 45 minutes. Then when she got on the phone she told me even though I told her the suite held a family of five. She then placed me on hold for 20 minutes to talk to a supervisor just to give us one person upgrade meaning a pull out couch instead of a fold-out chair came back got on the phone and told me that that promotion was only good for 4 to 5 people and that the emails are random!!! Why have people sign up for promotional emails if you don't intend on honoring them I call that a big fraud!!! My family was really looking forward to going to the Great Wolf Lodge but we will not be going because when I tried to get the room at the 139.99 that they offered me she said it wasn't available for our family size even though the promotional email was for our family and then they tried to offer me a price of $398. Can you believe that!!! And on top of that there's no hot tub there what a waste!!! There is definitely many better places to go then somewhere that doesn't even honor their promotions!!!

Re: “NaO’s Foodbus needs tutoring but shows promise

Generally when people show up during peak business hours in this case 12pm-1pm, with an order for 19 people, it tends to take a little extra time. NaOs Food Bus is NOT fast food and that is why we have such a large following. Everything is hand crafted in house, right down to our sauces. Most other restaurants who make their own corned beef like we do charge upwards of $14, and it is not delivered to your doorstep. However I am sorry you didnt enjoy your meal, everyone else who got a Reuben that day said it was the best Reuben theyve ever had. In addition, I am licensed in El Paso county with the health department and the city to peddle food.

Re: “NaO’s Foodbus needs tutoring but shows promise

Had a Reuben today from NaO's Food Bus - $11 - First of all the service was very slow. I was third in line. It was 30 minutes form the time I got in line until I got my food. I could drive to Culver's in less time and get a sandwich as tasty with a more generous amount of meat. Bus is more rough than quaint. I could't help but look for the health certificate which I never could find in view. Sandwich wasn't bad but not a great value or impression.

Re: “Piglatin Cocina takes a stylish street favorite to new heights

Piglatin is such a great mix of different flavors in a taco. It was great to drop in when they had a special on their Caribbean tacos. What an awesome lunch and washed this down with a cold beer and one of the best house margaritas. If you have not tried Piglatin yet, your are missing out. Plus, the comes to your table and answers any questions about the menu and just sits and chats with his customers. Cannot wait to visit again.

Re: “Slice 420 does killer pizza and crepes under misleading name

I think Slice 420 is the perfect name actually!!! As you already said they are marijuana refugees here for their child. If someone is questioning why they named it Slice 420 they can get the families story and then be humbled to eat their food! They are doing everything right for their business INCLUDING the name. It stands for something. The saving grace of their family.
