Re: “Amanda's Fonda

yep, used to love this restaurant, now not so much. Went there for cinco de mayo - although you would never even know it was cinco de mayo because staff or restaurant didn't even seem to acknowledge it - and they no longer have frozen margaritas... i have never heard of a mexican restaurant not having frozen margaritas. this is what i always ordered, but no more?? So we left. They didn't seem to care... kinda sad.

Re: “Rancho Alegre/La Hacienda

Superb food and friendly service. I like that they have entrees that are authentic Mexican but not the usual burrito/taco/enchilada fare that's everywhere else. Try the pollo con arroz (chicken and rice), or any of the seafood offerings. Margaritas are fine but nothing to write home about; the usual selection of Mexican beers.

Re: “Poblano's Family Mexican Restaurant

Oops, looks like one star is the minimum. FOOD POISONING ! Have gone here few times, was OK. However on 3/11/11 we had fish tacos and chile rellenos/ steak tacos. Mine was OK. A few hours after eating, my daughter a healthy twenty-year-old, with no food allergies, got violently sick with vomiting and diarrhea all night. She had not eaten since 10:30 that morning- so no other causes. She has had the same item there before. The following morning I called and talked to manager. She seemed neither surprised nor concerned, saying that stuff is going around. ER Doc said if you get sick within a few hours of eating-it was the meal that got you. Looks like stuff is going around _IN THE KITCJEN_.

Have since talked to local neighbors who skip this place.

Poblano's needs a surprise visit from Health Dept!! You decide, whether you want to roll the dice here! An elderly person could get finished off by food-borne pathogens.

Re: “El Taco Rey

We love eating here. It's a great place to have a late lunch during the week. My kids absolutely love their beans and rice. Same as everyone else, the Avocado Pork burrito smothered is the only way to go. For us, it's the best mexican food in Co Springs.

Re: “José Muldoon's - Tejon St.

Always good food and service. The bartenders Blake, Ivan and barback George are my favorites.

Re: “José Muldoon's - Tejon St.

Moneymoo that's to bad. I've been a patron for 20+ also and I must say I've waited for the day for Jose to serve me a bad meal (but they've been consistent over those 20). Not sure why people are blasting the food, you know it's not authentic before you come (but it is consistently good). Good, not necessarily authentic, southwestern food (not that tex-mex garbage).

Re: “José Muldoon's - Tejon St.

Horrible, horrible, horrible. Been my hangout for 25 years and last week the food sucked enough to never go back.

Re: “El Poblano

My husband brought home takeout for the family from El Poblano last night. It was delicious. This is not standard "Mexican" food. The flags flying were from Honduras, El Salvador, and Mexico. Judging only from the food we ate, I don't think Mexico has the primary influence.

Unfortunately I can't tell you the names of most of our dishes, because he just ordered a few random things and there wasn't a copy of the menu to bring home :( But I can tell you that none of the items were food that you'd get at another local Mexican eatery.

One item was Papusas, which are Salvadoran. They are delicious and definitely not health food.

We'll go back!

Re: “Poblano's Family Mexican Restaurant

The best mexican food in Colorado Springs?!? These commentors are stretching the truth, or truly have no clue. Poblano's, in the pink bus on Chelton and Platte blows this place away. Hit the taco triangle in south central CSprings if you want authentic.
