Re: “Trinity Brewing

Trinity is unique, and Colorado Springs is lucky to have it. First off - go here for the beer. The food is good, yes, but the beer is really the entire reason to experience Trinity. (I think right now they have a Cucumber-Basil Saison on tap - if you aren't into anything more adventurous than a Bud Light, you probably aren't going to enjoy this brewery.)

For the people who rate Trinity poorly; I'm not sure what they expect out of a microbrewery. Trinity has been rated in the top 25 breweries in the world; again, for a community as small as the Springs is; we're lucky to have a place like this. I don't know anywhere else in the city where I can go get beers as wildly different as Trinity offers with appetizers ranging from thick, sliced bacon slices served with maple syrup to vegan fajitas (which are amazing; and I'm not vegan!) - anyway... five stars.

Re: “Springs Orleans

It is simply other worldly...and now with the connecting hotel, it is as easy going downtown to leave town. And at Colo Springs rates, not New York's!

Re: “Thunder & Buttons

Decided to stop and try the food here when we noticed the specials board while strolling through Old Colorado City - VERY glad we did! They had a lot more than just burgers and bar food. We had the Lettice Wraps as an appetizer and tried a couple of the daily specials - I had Chicken Marsala and the wife had the Sloppy Buffalo. Everything tasted great. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with very good service. Loved the vintage NFL helmets around the bar - will definitely be back for football season also!!

Re: “Mirch Masala

Simply the best Indian food I've ever eaten. The tiki masala chicken is so incredible I've actually had dreams about it. The kheer pudding and the mango dessert are some of th bed flavors I've enjoyed. The format of the buffet is very pragmatic. Go at lunch, that's the best deal. Marvelous experience

Re: “Sacred Grounds Coffee in the Canyon

I absolutely LOVE this place. The owners are very open, loving and caring. We hold our meditations upstairs and we rent the place to have a Metaphysical Meet and Greet. I bring my 3 year old autistic nephew and they are very accommodating for him. A wonderful atmosphere, a peaceful outside table, and great food and drinks.

Re: “Gray's Coors Tavern

I love the sloppers! Definitely worth the drive from Colorado Springs. The staff makes you feel like a local. Fun, fun, fun.

Re: “Sahara Café

Eat there atleast 1-2 times a week. The beef platter with pita bread and humas is absolutely wonderful. I go in there by myself with my daughter and I will sit there for atleast a full hour eating and enjoying their wonderful sage tea, both hot and cold!

Defiantly the best place in Colorado Springs/Manitou.

The best BBQ in the springs! Great food, great prices, and a drive thru. If you haven't tried it yet you need to go.

Re: “Oakley's Café & Bistro at Sundance Mountain Lodge

New staff and new management have made some great improvements! I tried this restuarant again recently... and it was okay in the past.... but it is great now! The daily and weekly specials are great and the staff was super friendly and attentive. Thanks, Oakleys!

Re: “Joey's Pizza

Re: “Great Wall Seafood Buffet

Check the dates on the other reviews, 2+ years old. There is new management and this now the best Chinese restaurant in town - bar none (I've tried them all)! Chinese, Sushi and even Mongolian Bar-B-Q. They are just completing a complete remodel and the place is bright shiny and all new! A MUST for anyone who loves Chinese in all its flavors.

Re: “Joey's Pizza

Great NY style pizza from the crust to the toppings, all are a step above the other NY Pizza joints such as Leon Gessi or B. brothers. When they get busy, orders can take longer than normal but it's well worth the wait. If something is not right with your order, Joey is quick to make it right. It is my favorite pizza shop. The calzones, wings, subs and garlic knots are excellent as well. I definitely recommend them.
