The first of these trips this year lead us to the Saltgrass steak house in Colorado Springs. An eclectic decor of Texas road-side bar, 1980’s style Cattleman’s Club mixed with a healthy dose of hunting lodge, the restaurant is certainly fun.

Also making it’s way to our table was a tall slender glass filled with a frozen concoction called the Loan Star Swirl. Very tasty with Midori and Strawberry puree.
They say that Insanity is repeating your actions exactly and expecting a different result. Well..... GUILTY!
I have loved the steaks at Saltgrass since day one. I rave about how juicy and tender they are. They have the ultimate flavor and so on and so forth. But something was amiss this snowy day in December. My steak was nearly raw, of unrecognizable cut and tasted like.... Well... A Denny’s steak. Really not good! Damn sure not worth $20.

“I just know I like the steaks here,” I told Jessica.
“You always like MY steak,” She said. “You keep ordering those damn RibEyes and you never like them here.”
Ahhhh. She had a point! I’m insane!
The atmosphere, the appetizers, the drinks and the food are all great, just not MY food!
This almost NEVER happens to me! I always order well. That is to say I nearly always end up with what I want on my plate.
We will return, and likely soon. But I will be ordering something other than a RibEye and we will see what happens!
