Has anyone been to the new place in Manitou that serves custard? The culvers kind just sucks compared to what I had out in Branson, MO. it tastes just like plain ice-cream.

I went to a great hole-in-the-wall restaurant for breakfast on Sunday that I'd never been to before.

It's called the North End Diner and it is one block of Fillmore St. on Hancock Ave. They had good old-fashioned breakfast for great prices - my friend and I had big breakfasts and our bill only came to less than $9. And they open early so that most people could go for breakfast before work.

They have a neat website with coupons, etc. here.

Been there, heard about in our other thread on "new places to eat" though that place is older than dirt. For those who haven't been there, the walls are covered in the owners collection of salt & pepper shakers. Good food, by real people.

Front Range BBQ seems inconsistent to me. I've had some good meals and some below average meals there. Same with service. To be fair, I've only tried the OCC location.

Recently tried SuzyQs in Manitou. Pulled pork was tasty. Juicy with a subdued smoky flavor. Bricket was so-so. The end pieces were pretty good, but some of the center cuts were dry. Great catfish tacos with a nice crunchy batter with just enough spice and nice firm fish inside. They make their own sauces too. Suzy Q’s BBQ | Texas Style BBQ, Craft Beer, and Good Ol Southern Hospitality.

Speaking of tacos...if you want a range of tacos, bowls, and burros with an island flair, Laaus Taco shop. 830 N Tejon, In the recently renovated Spencer Building, around back of the building. Combo and ingrediants you wouldn't think of putting in a taco work well with their creations. Laaus Taco Shop

North End Diner is gone, they moved briefly to a nearby location (IIRC the old Conway's Red Top on Fillmore) then just shut down; been a couple of years now.

North End Diner started a slow decline in quality and then operating hours around 2011-12 at it original location. It then tried to merge with the Bistro, which was in the old Red Top building, and then ran both the NED and Bistro menus, so quality suffered even further. Finally they shut down the whole shebang around 2013.

In the old NED location on Hancock, Springs Cafe opened up about 6 months after the NED/Bistro closure. Not sure if they were done by the same or related people at all as I never went there. It has since closed and is now open as Olaf's Place. I still haven't gone there to see if it is similar to the NED or not.

If you miss the North End Diner, you might try Sheldon's Luncheonette, 204 Mt View on the northwest corner of Nevada and Mt View. Classic greasy spoon/diner food. You can smell the butter and grease when you walk in the door and it will linger on you for the rest of the afternoon. Full breakfast and lunch menu. Fair food, fair prices.

Sorry, Sheldons is on the northeast corner of Mt View and Nevada, not the northwest.

I'll second El Taco Rey.

Salsa Latina, one of the Taco Rey family members is good also.

28 E Rio Grande St, across from Police Ops Center. At Salsa they don't accept credit cards.
