Re: “Good Company Bar and Restaurant

I used to love this bar and frequent it quite often ($$$$) but I seemed to have gotten myself banned for life (a little extreme) when I gave my honest opinion to some new patrons that one of the bartenders wasn't good at mixing drinks and they should get a beer instead. They took it as me trying to "sway" their customers to go somewhere else. Not the case..... they just need to get rid of that bartender. I'm sure her drinks would be much better if she wasn't flirting with all the men so much or showing people pictures of her kid on her phone. It blows that they wouldn't hear my side of it that girl with the blond hair cut in a bob with some sort of accent blatantly lied. So now I'm salty and now I'm going to work really hard to "sway" people from this establishment.

Re: “Mi Viejo San Juan

I will revisit Mi Viejo San Juan. Last visit was not a pleasant experience. At the time I wanted to chalk it up to a 100% Puerto Rican looking 100% Irish or possibly a really bad day. Everything I ordered was dry and or overcooked.

Re: “The Caddie Shack Restaurant at Valley Hi Golf Course

Have not returned to the restaurant for a year after a dismal meal. Today my group had 4 different meals. Everybody raved about their food. I had fish and chips and it was superb. The batter was light and the fish cooked to perfection.
I suggest: even if you are not a golfer, go and treat yourself.

Re: “Carniceria Fruiteria El Ranchito

Best tacos in Colorado Springs at nearly the best price$1.49. Don't miss the refrigerated buffet with its host of salsas and sides, such as roasted peppers and sliced radishes. The carnitas tacos are wonderful, but there are plenty of other choices.

The tostadas at $2.99 include beans and your choice of meat as well as avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, and Mexcian cheese.

Place is inside a Mexican grocery. The sign is on a post near the street. There is not a noticeable sign saying El Ranchito on the building.

Re: “Mauricio's Taco Shop

This used to be my GO to restaurant, I'd tell everyone about this place and go all the time! But absolutely NOT after today! They were SO rude after I had to drive ALL the way back because she "thought" I ordered #13 instead of #14. Which is fine, but when I came back to get it exchanged for the order I'd been WAITING for for almost an hour, and they essentially mocked me for bringing it back, and then tried to make me pay the $2 difference which isn't even listed outside on the ordering menu. So they are scam artists and rude!! I will advise everyone to go to TACO STAR or even TACO BELL from now on! Wish I could give negative stars! This must be the 12th time they've messed up my order! It's not worth it anymore! And their guac is mixed with water but they try to charge you $2 for it! They are just not a good establishment! And they talk in Spanish when they don't like you and expect you to not "notice", FYI it's the modern age and a lot of people can understand/speak Spanish! You guys don't even deserve customers to harass!!! You don't care about the customers you just care about what kinda green you're gonna get! I will never waste my money here again!!!!!! And I will never let my friends waste money here again! DISGUSTED.

Re: “Billy's Old World Pizza

I had a bad experience the first time I came, the menu online had the wrong prices. I went it, found out it was $10 more than advertised, was upset, got the pizza anyway and left. Loved the pizza (I had the Chicago style, I can't speak to the other offerings) so I got a Groupon, the Groupon says it is a flat fee which gets you a medium two topping pizza, an appetizer and two drinks, dine-in or carry out. I called and ordered this for carry out, go to pickup my order and there was a balance, the owner wanted to charge me gratuity for my carry out order, was mad I got it for carry out, said that was an error and wanted to charge me over the amount it said it was valued at. I was appalled, showed him the Groupon, and he said it was their error and I had to pay the difference. I will never come back. If you advertise a price, you honor it.

Re: “Johnny B's

Anyone know what happened to Johnny B's? I was sad to see they were no longer open but the signs are still up so I'm hopeful they're coming back.

Re: “Mother Muff's Kitchen & Spirits

Couldn't disagree more with the review. The critic must be some elitist arse, who'd be better off reviewing obscure restaurants with square plates or butcher's paper for a plate. Anyway, the three or four times I've eaten at Mother Muffs, the food has been great. Just what you'd expect after reading the menu. I've had BLT, fried raviolis, cheese sticks, and a burger. All were tasty. Service has been great. Prices are decent! Nice atmosphere in the front room. Olde school, pub feel!

Re: “European Café

This is a hidden secret of Colorado Springs. The restaurant is located at 1015 W. Colorado now and the phone number is 632-6309. The food is some of the best in our city. They strive for quality and freshness. Everything is homemade. My favorite restaurant.

Best Mexican sit down in the city.

Re: “Larkburger

Was great the first couple visits, then the staff gave up. Pray there's not more than 3 people ahead of you or the wait will be your lunch break. Burgers are pretty good, staff is friendly, but all in all the prices are ridiculous. Expect $15-17 per person when taking a family here.

Re: “Paravicini's Italian Bistro

Service and food are excellent. I was born in NYC and come from an Italian family.

Re: “Paravicini's Italian Bistro

Mediocre food, inattentive service. What passes for good food in this city continues to astonish me.

Re: “The Caddie Shack Restaurant at Valley Hi Golf Course

Hello everyone my name is Ray and me and Joe just took over management roughly a month ago. I can assure you that this place will be turned around and bring back a friendly and bright culture to this community and this amazing restaurant. We are already seeing improvement by getting returning guests and compliments saying " thank you for taking over". We are starting to do a Fish fry on Fridays as well as a prime rib dinner on Saturday's. We are going to be known as a restaurant and bar. We are calling it Valley Hi Pub and Grill. so come see us and give us a chance to make a great first impression.
