  • Dining Review: Dogs welcome at Pub Dog Colorado

    Updated: 18 hr ago

    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...

  • Dining Review: Mollica's Italian Market and Deli serves it up molto bene

    Updated: Wed, Jun 7, 2017

    Red and white checkered tablecloths go together with Italian restaurants like spaghetti and meatballs. It might be a cliché, but that's quickly overlooked at Mollica's Italian Market and Deli because so much more is offered. It's a delicatessen where sandwiches are assembled fresh to...

  • Dining Review: Meat well done a signature at Prime 25

    Updated: Wed, May 31, 2017

    Prime 25 may be the new kitchen on the block, but it's likely to be a culinary favorite in the community. The emphasis is on steaks, all prime, aged cuts, but the overall vision is more inclusive: seafood, pork, and lobster macaroni and cheese, among other offerings. I started with...

  • Dining Review: Hatch Cover still draws a crowd in landlocked Colorado Springs

    Updated: Wed, May 17, 2017

    In restaurant years, the Hatch Cover's age is showing. Nonetheless, who'd have thought an eatery with a marina motif established in 1974 would have such longevity in landlocked Colorado Springs? Although it's gone through a few face-lifts, and the waterfront décor is mostly a thing...

  • Dining Review: From molletes to mole, Provecho satisfies

    Updated: Mon, May 15, 2017

    Bon appetit means "good appetite"; its counterpart in Latin American countries is provecho, which doesn't have a literal translation related to food. Both are common ways of wishing one an enjoyable meal. This is practically foolproof at Provecho Fresh Mexican Cuisine in Colorado...
