  • Video: Get your pork shank on

    The smells of something awesome cooking on the grill permeated The Warehouse Restaurant at 25 West Cimarron St. in Colorado Springs. Food Editor Teresa Farney and I had the pleasure of watching Executive Chef and Owner Chip Johnson prepare a smoked orange chipotle barbecued pork shank. This tasty entrée is a mix of sweet and spicy rolled...

  • 5 reasons Chipotle still has fans lining up for more

    Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) blew the doors off of its second quarter Monday, and its shares took an after-the-bell leap to an all-time high near $650, double the price hit early last year. Investors are high on the stock for many reasons. Chipotle took the rather stale concept of fast Mexican food and turned it into something new. It's got...

  • McDonald's meat supplier changed expiration dates

    A Shanghai reporter spent two months in the city’s Husi Food Company plant, which supplies meat to McDonald’s and Yum Brands (which owns Pizza Hut and KFC) in China, and found some pretty disgusting practices including falsifying expiration dates and picking food up off the floor and tossing it in processing machines, according to...

  • Drive-thru review: Love that shrimp from Popeyes

    This week I decided to try an eight-piece order of Cracked Pepper Butterfly Shrimp at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. Veterans always will call it "Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits" because that's what started this company. Here's the Cracked Pepper Butterfly Shrimp breakdown: eight shrimp marinated in Cajun seasoning and deep-fried with a light...

  • Dining review: Her Story Café a good fit, even near books

    As much as I loved libraries when I was a kid, I would have never considered eating my lunch - or anything else - in one, and I am fairly confident the librarians would have frowned upon the idea. Libraries and attitudes change, and I have to admit that eating near books, especially in Library 21C, the Pikes Peak Library District's newest,...

  • Get a taste of former Denver Dry Goods department store tea room menus at special dinners in Canon City

    Al and Linda Ballard, owners of The Ca?n City Queen Anne restaurant and tea house in Ca?n City, are never at a loss for ideas for unusual themes for their special teas and dinners. And, for some of us of a certain age, their newest theme, Tribute to the Denver Dry Goods "Tea Rooms," will resonate. The tea rooms operated at the department store...

  • What exactly is a craft beer? It can depend on who you ask

    I was back home in West Virginia for the Fourth of July and made plans to join a friend for drinks at a new-to-me spot, The Mountaineer, in "downtown" Berkeley Springs, a half-mile stretch of main street bounded by two of the town's three stoplights. "Best nonredneck place in town," my friend said, tongue firmly planted in self-avowed redneck...

  • Brewery boom marks bright spot in NM economy

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — That frosty tide of smooth, golden brown craft beer has finally come in, and it's helping to quench this drought-stricken state's thirst for jobs and economic development. Dozens of microbreweries and taprooms have popped up around New Mexico in recent years, the state's universities and colleges are developing...
