Phils is great! They have a unique spot. (old mechanic garage) They show support to local music artists and is a great place to meet up with friends.

The eggplant curry is truly ADDICTIVE, so beware. And when you tell your friends about the food--don't skip the pappadum and sauce--you'll start salivating and have to go immediately. I have to go there tonight...NOW...

Re: “Vietnamese Garden

Saw a sign out front recently that they were celebrating their 1 year anniversary. Glad to see a restaurant stick around in this cute little spot. Attentive, knowledgeable service. Fantastic Vietnamese coffee. Flavorful, filling, and unique food options. Love the noodle bowls and the soups, especially this time of the year! Seriously, try them out in a group and you can all try each other's dishes.

Most of their food is pretty basic, sandwiches, bagels, pastry kind of stuff, but their Mate Latte (Yerba Mate green tea with steamed milk) is the absolute best I've found anywhere in town. The fact that they are right next to the Cheyenne Mtn. library, walking distance from my house and have a great patio, make them one of my favorite summer Saturday morning fixtures.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

We decided to finally head across town and check out this award winner. The ambiance is nice and the staff very friendly. Starting out with a margarita is definitely the way to go! The chicken mole was very good and had layers of flavor but none were overpowering. The only problem were the sides, the beans and rice were somewhat bland and need to be perked up a bit. This was well worth the drive and we will be heading back to try the chili colorado.

We have eaten at Nawlns several times. By now we've had nearly everything on the menu. We've never had a bad meal. We've had their food at a catered event and it was just as fabulous as the food at the establishment. The wait staff is courteous and helpful. We've never had a bad experience there. I'm sorry if other people have, but we've always enjoyed the freshness of the fish, the tenderness of the meat, and the large portions. Suffice it say, we'll definitely be back!

I am from the Big Easy and love this place! I grew up and lived there for 30 years. If you want red beans & rice with your catfish, ORDER IT! I've had french fries, potato salad, baked mac & cheese with catfish dinners. My kids (who are from New Orleans, as well!) and I had a good giggle over this. Newsflash Anaxagoris, this is a ridiculous statement!

Re: “Old Chicago - Academy

OC Academy has been my home port for the entire decade. Food's good, beer's better, people are the best!

I can't say about what the place is like. But I can say that the food was good. My daughter got me some red beans and rice with the best hushpuppies I have ever had.

I love the place. There was so much food I had to take most of it home. I have been doing business at this place for some time now and never had a bad experience or food.

This place has to be in the top 5 breakfast restaurants in Colorado Springs. They're hashbrowns are the best in town (Buttery Perfection).

Re: “English Dockside

We love this place from the PO'Boys to the mother of all hamburgers. We just wish the plates came with more of those SUPER FRESH and GREAT SEASONED french fries.

Re: “Coquette's Bistro and Bakery

I was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy (celiac disease) and it's been kind of a nightmare trying to find a restaurant with appetizing gluten-free fare. Following my first meal at Coquette Creperie, I realized that this gluten allergy business wasn't going to be so bad after all. The food is absolutely delicious and the variety of tastes from crepe to crepe never allow boredom to enter into the equation. The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable and the staff have always been friendly and extremely attentive.

Re: “Coquette's Bistro and Bakery

i was afraid to try a "gluten free" crepe but my partner is very intolerant of the gooey stuff so I gave in...glad I did. kinda magical filling in my bada bing (spicy italian sauce and great sausages) and we even had to try a dessert with fruit filling..a few cocktails later we realized we just didn't want to leave the cool comfort zone. ..who needs gluten anyway

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

Loved eating here when we lived in Mantiou - especially liked the chicken in mole, fish tacos, and chile Colorado. Outdoor patio overlooking the creek is nice when the weather is nice and when you're not seated next to a smoker (1 star reduction for allowing smoking on the patio).

Really excellent burgers, and you can get HALF of a burger if you're not a big eater. A well run local operation with more than one location IIRC, to include one on Fillmore just west of Union.

Re: “Rico's Café and Wine Bar

The make your own salad choices are superb. I"m not a big fan of the usual boring green stuff that's normally thrown on the table, so this offering makes my day.... try it with grilled chicken, chick peas, roasted almonds and peppers.... sesame seed dressing to top it off.....hmmmmmmm....I actually walk about a mile from my office to get this for lunch about once every other week.
