Re: “Garden of the Gods Gourmet's swank new spot and a new bbq truck

Our first and last visit to the cafe was disappointing to say the least. I would have given the cafe 2 stars for ambience, but after having to work our way through the maze of chairs to our table, it gets 1 star.

We ordered the beet salad with blackened salmon, the Friday fish and chips, (I hope they don't serve it any other day of the week) and the carnitas taco. All dish with pathetic and far from gourmet.

I guess the gourmet word for blackened is burnt. The only this that could have saved this meal was to scape of the burnt portion and ask for lemon which never came because our waitress forgot and spent her time folding napkins. The salad portion consisted of 4 beets and maybe a half cup of lettuce. A stretch of the term salad.

The fish and chips had greasy stale fries, oily flavorless cabbage, (I guess this was the cold slaw), two pieces of what appeared to be fish but on further investigation was just a thick over fired crust with dried out fish skin on the inside. At the end of our "lunch" and when our "waitress" was finished folding the napkins and looked up at her tables, we finally got the opportunity to let our waitress know about the meal. She said she'd take "a couple of bucks off". Real gourmet style I must say.

The pork carnitas looked like ground up baby food in a corn shell. Thats all I can say about that. Other than it didn't resemble anything I have ever seen ordered that had the word carnitas in it.

Shame of you...... 3 strikes..... your out!
