Re: “Story Coffee barista/roaster Eliza Lovett recovering after roasting accident

Thank you to all the Baristas who took shifts and showed what real community taking care looks like.

Re: “Juniper Valley Ranch has a strong showing in 66th year

So what if they cannot spell "consume" or "consomme"? the writer called the area "red-dirt scrublands" when it is commonly referred to by us old-timers as the pinion-juniper country or "PJs" for short.
Highway 115 has a large population of deer and turkey so drive carefully especially at dusk. There have been an elk or two in the area as well.

Re: “Whistle Pig heads in the right direction

We went there yesterday evening - a group of us (4-5) regularly visit local brewpubs. It was my 4th trip, and I really don't think any of the brews show much improvement. Would have liked to try the new menu, but there was only one person serving, and we weren't able to get his attention to order food. Sadly, probably the last time we'll give Whistle Pig a try.

Re: “UPDATE: Downtown Partnership makes room for more local food trucks

Let the food trucks park in Acacia Park. They would help activate the park.

Re: “UPDATE: Downtown Partnership makes room for more local food trucks

Regulations. Red tape. Bureaucrats and politicians stifling food providers. Fridays - Saturdays - 12 hours. Govt busybody BS! And parking meters belong to the City - not to brick & mortar restaurants - so why do food trucks need to "partner" with them? If food trucks are successful, expect the brick & mortars to put their own food trucks out on the streets. This will be a significant way to "revitalize" downtown. Lots of people don't want to eat at sit-down restaurants. They'd rather grab a quick lunch from a food truck and eat it sitting on a bench or planter provided by the City. Take a lesson from Denver's 16th street mall - close Tejon to vehicles and parking meters and open it to the public and food trucks.

Re: “UPDATE: Downtown Partnership makes room for more local food trucks

This is awesome. I'm especially looking forward to the food trucks downtown. Austin has a busy downtown street they close down on Friday/Saturday nights and have tons of people, bars, and food trucks gathering. I could see this pushing Tejon in that direction.

Re: “Bison Brothers Food Truck makes Colorado Springs debut

Went to Great Storm Brewing last night and these guys were there. Super friendly, had a nice conversation with them. We shared spinach artichoke dip and sliders between 3 people. Demolished. Amber beer on tap was great too!

Re: “Roll Up egg rolls hit and miss

Hi, Kayla! Thanks for your readership. I'm glad you've had good experiences with this food truck I found the service here to be pleasant and helpful as well.
This review comes from our Dine & Dash section every week, we run three short reviews of old favorites or smaller new players in the Springs food scene. In the past, we've run all three as a single web feature, but with the roll-out of our new website, we've decided to give each Dine & Dash review its own space, for reader convenience. That said, each Dine & Dash review is still only around 150 words, so we have to pack a lot of information into very little space.
Hope that gives you a little more info on why it's written the way it is. Thanks again for reading the Indy!

Re: “Roll Up egg rolls hit and miss

Is that really how you end a review? Lol

MY opinion is this with out the odd quick ending.

It is delicious I have tried almost every roll they have some needing a little more seasoning etc but not too much more.
They are extremely polite, there service is fast & they even bring my food to car when done :) which is a win for me as I am 8 & half months pregnant!
There pizza rolls my daughter loves :) every time we drive by she yells rolls mommy:) lol. for two young men they are doing amazing!

Re: “Dragon Gate's kitchen is quite lively

I've been saying it for a long time... Dragon Gate for Strong Mayor!!!!!!!
Thirty plus years of consistent, solid food.
And a big plus is their willingness to customize... try requesting the egg foo yung with no cornstarch!!!
I adore Dragon Gate... I'd say in thirty years I could count on one hand the number of times it was disappointing.

Re: “Rooster's House of Ramen hoping for spring opening

I wish the article mentioned that coquettes bistro & bakery is moving to 616 S Tejon for a mid April opening. It is NOT closing.

Re: “Indus Modern Kitchen wisely pulls a page from Panda Express

Ate here this evening. As an Indian loving Englishman who grew up on curry and still eats it at least once a week, I'll accept that I'm rather a curry snob. Indus hit all the right notes. Very tasty, very affordable, very friendly staff and service. I would disagree with the review above only in so much as the Chicken Tikka Masala does have a really nice heat 'zing', but as everything's made home-made, perhaps we just caught it on a really good day! Definitely recommend checking this place out - it's these sort of eateries that COS needs more of. We'll be back for sure.
