^ I've tried both locations and I much prefer the Pueblo store. The Colorado Springs location is decent but it's still new enough that they're working out the kinks. I imagine it will improve.

There is a new breakfast and lunch place I'm impressed with. Doug's Breakfast and Lunch on Austin Bluffs and Academy. Awesome red and green chile, New Mexico-style (the owner had several diners on the Northern Front Range and before that, Albuquerque). Fresh ingredients and it tasted as home-made, from scratch as it is. Might just give Over Easy some competition before long.

*This seems to be the most popular food thread so I'm putting this here*

On our way back from hiking we stopped by Sonic in Woodland Park for some St Patricks Day 1/2 price shakes. I'll have you know the shakes from the WP Sonic must be made with a bit of gold. $5.99 for a large, $6.49 if it was a specialty shake. Out of pure principal we made our way down to the OCC Sonic where the large is $4.29 if i remember right.

I can understand a little bit higher for the tourist crowd, but that's nuts. I have no idea if the other stuff is higher because I don't get anything but shakes from there.

Southern Maid Donuts Stetson Hills and Powers

Not too bad but nothing overly special either. Felt like they weren't dense enough, just a little too light and fluffy. Had a creme filled long john type, devils food with frosting, a cinnamon roll, and a glazed with frosting.(For the record, I didn't eat them all at once. I could have, but I didn't)

Mom and I checked out this place downtown called The Cheese Grill. We do NOT recommend it to others. You think it'd be hard to mess up grilled cheese or mac and cheese, but our food was just gross. And they were out of salad - all salad. And their menus were out of date. And their menus were just printed off a computer printer in black and white. And the staff was milling around unprofessionally. There were two reviews for this place in the Gazette recently - we now think that is a sign of the owner trying desperately to drum up business because he's about to go under - at least the food and professionalism of the place makes us think so.

Default Cowboy Star in University Village on N. Nevada

A new steakhouse is opening tomorrow and the info in the newspaper sounds really good.

I'll be hitting it soon enough, and if anyone else does please let us know your opinions.

I'm not sure if this was already discussed, so I thought I'd mention a new restaurant opened up north, C.B. & Potts near Bass Pro Shops. We tried this a few weeks ago. http://www.cbpotts.com/menu-location...orado-springs/

It's a Colorado chain, but we've never been to one. Husband liked the beer fine. I thought the service was a little slow, but the place is huge and has great views, lots of TVs, and plenty to find on the menu. Our food was good. We didn't try a burger, but husband had the French dip (he didn't like the coleslaw) and I had the Olympus Salad and it was really good.
