Re: “Local food and drink highlights from 2018

Hi, Tom! Thanks for your comment. Thing is, Indus opened in 2016, and we first reviewed it in January of 2017 see link below. So while we enjoy Indus, it didn't qualify as a highlight in 2018 because it didn't open this year. Still, thanks for reading and for reaching out!

Here's our first review of the spot: https://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/ind…

Re: “Local food and drink highlights from 2018

Where I agree: Monses, the consistency of Fat SullysDBC, Pikes Peak Market (will it survive?), and Blank. Overdue to visit Piglatin, Havana Grill. Overlooked: Indus Modern Kitchen.

Re: “Roman Villa Pizza's still popping after 59 years

I eat at Roman Villa pretty regularly, and always order a pizza. They definitely always have a generous helping of toppings, but I have never experienced any soggy crust or leftover boxes. Its definitely true that if you dont get there early then you'll have to wait for a table, and theres a reason for that; the food is awesome.

Re: “Roman Villa Pizza's still popping after 59 years

The pepproni pizza is great, but better than that is the lasagna which is hands down the best in town. I also love the house salad with the homade italian dressing and generous blue cheese crumbles!

Re: “Roman Villa Pizza's still popping after 59 years

As a vegetarian, I love Roman Villas veggie pizza. It always weighs about 10lbs because it is stacked with toppings, unlike most places that sprinkle a few olives and even fewer peppers on a cheese pizza and charge an arm and a leg for it.

Matt 2: That wouldn't surprise me. I only tried the one on this visit, so I can't say for certain.

Is there a better pizza to get here?

Re: “Dos Santos blesses South Downtown with superior tacos

Readers like me could use some help with unfamiliar terms like elote, Tajin, cotija and ceviche. I left the story to look up each term, an awkward process. Later in the article, the author helpfully defines pizzelle and cajeta. Eventually Ill catch on, with help.

Re: “Jarrito Loco makes abuela's best recipes from scratch to great success

Last night I updated Google maps with their correct location. It could take up to 24 hours for it to show up.

Jarrito Loco is the real deal! If I could afford to eat out every day, it would be at Jarrito Loco! Monument is so fortunate that Angel and Angie chose to open this awesome restaurant here. Brent

Re: “Little Nepal, Border Burger Bar, Dat's Italian

Presented 25% off coupon legit from Verizon hum and they took my phone in back to a computer continuing to scroll through my photos when I asked for my phone back saying that that was inappropriate and that I have personal photos credit card information etc. On my phone and they called me crazy and said that they were going to call the cops! Do not I repeat do not trust this place. Pretty sure they were intentionally treating me like a criminal because I caught them.at Dats Italian

Re: “Porkman’s Pit does good meat, learns the dos and don'ts of cheese

The Pork-ito has changed from the original as described in this article. The nacho cheese was replaced with fresh shredded cheese. However customers do still request the Nacho cheese and sometimes extra. Many orders of the burrito are custom made with returns for more. The coleslaw is advertised as homemade and the potato salad has never been. Return customers still enjoy it and continue to request it
