  • N3 Taphouse brings new menu to Old Colorado City

    Updated: 9 hr ago

    N3 Taphouse is a restaurant/bar in an old fire station where the flames in the kitchen are well under control. Long past its days as a city firehouse, the unassuming two-story brick building on West Colorado Avenue has, through the years, either accommodated or been considered for...

  • Dining Review: Home-cooked Mexican food like a warm embrace north of Colorado Springs

    Updated: Thu, Aug 17, 2017

    Arlene's Beans Mexican Take-out and Catering is a hole-in-the-wall joint. Trust me, the description is meant as a term of endearment because Arlene's is a warm, friendly place with authentic, mouthwatering Mexican food. The nondescript exterior belies the attention to detail in the...

  • Dining Review: Ambiance proves addictive at Manitou coffee shop, cafe

    Updated: Thu, Aug 10, 2017

    The vibe at Red Dog Coffee and Cafe is as arty and friendly as Manitou Springs in general. The menu consists of sandwiches, a few salads, a daily quiche and an array of baked goods. What we sampled was fine but not at the top of the best-ever category. This might not be the place...

  • Dining Review: 'Four' means more with Brother Luck in Colorado Springs

    Updated: Fri, Aug 4, 2017

    If there's a Brother Luck Fan Club, count me in. I'm a groupie, I admit it. Like others, I've followed him around town from one restaurant to another as he's broadened his culinary repertoire, progressively expanding the menu, dining areas and kitchen with each successive move....

  • Dining Review: Dogs welcome at Pub Dog Colorado

    Updated: Wed, Jul 19, 2017

    Like others in the dining area, one member of our group couldn't relax amid the aroma of food, the proximity of four-legged companions and an early afternoon thunderous hailstorm. Only the Pub Dog staff appeared at ease. "Sometimes it's like a doghouse here," quipped an employee at...

  • Dining review: Johnny's Navajo Hogan serves up fresh and tasty fare

    Updated: Thu, Jul 13, 2017

    Johnny's Navajo Hogan is as distinct as an Indian head nickel but fortunately not as rare in Colorado Springs. The neon Indian head sign above the shingled roof is eye-catching, but it belies the high-quality food, exceptional service and architectural features (wood conical...

  • Asian bistro in Colorado Springs boasts huge menu but panang curry shines

    Updated: Wed, Jul 5, 2017

    With a continent the size of Asia, it's no wonder the menu at Mikado Asian Bistro is expansive. It represents many familiar and not-so well-known Chinese, Japanese and Thai dishes associated with the Far East. Along with standards such as sweet-and-sour entrees and Kung Pao options,...

  • Dining Review: Schnitzel Fritz boasts German cooking and desserts

    Updated: Thu, Jun 22, 2017

    Some words are simply fun to say, like Schnitzel Fritz. Go ahead - say it. It's hard to utter the name of this casual German restaurant and delicatessen on the city's east side without smiling. Unfortunately, not everything there is as enjoyable as the name. The menu features...

  • Dining Review: Baba's Burgers serves simple, affordable fare

    Updated: Wed, Jun 14, 2017

    Sometimes nothing's more satisfying than a no-frills hamburger: meat, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles in a plain bun. It's even tastier when affordable is part of the recipe. Baba's Burgers in Manitou Springs fits the bill. Granted, there are plenty of ways to upgrade, but none that...
