ALL MEAT

I hope I selected the correct item from the drop down list! I had a buffet style night one night and ordered a bunch of food from Paninos; The cheese sticks with pepperoni, Buffalo wings, A large All Meat Pizza, A Chicken Caesar Panino, I want to start by saying that while we didn't speak to anyone I did leave notes for my order and they were fulfilled! So high five on that! The cheese sticks were very yummy and we loved how they had the pepperoni for added flair and taste! Worth it! Buffalo wings were good as well! But that ALL MEAT PIZZA!!!... is out of this world! If you are a "lover" of a more popular chains "MEAT" pizza, you will never eat that one again and will have found you new favorite Meat pizza! This pizza delivered on substantial cheeses, toppings, taste and size! I was/ am impressed! An absolute must if you eat here! The Chicken Caesar Panino is also extremely good. Simple, delicious taste! Fulfilling and plenty to share with another! How can you go to Paninos and not get one! There are plenty to choose from!! I hadn't had Paninos in a very long time prior to ordering this in. I'm glad I did, I'd really forgotten how worth it they are! Your tastebuds will thank you!

BUFFALO CHICKEN

One of my absolute favorite things to eat. Period.

PRIME RIB FRENCH DIP

One of my long-time favorites finally made the full-time line-up! The prime rib french dip Panino is so addicting it should carry a warning label. The addition of some quality horseradish in the Panino along with the tenderly delicious prime rib and Swiss cheese gives it a delightful zest. Paired with the au jus, this Panino packs an amazing taste journey to remember. Guess I'll be going to Paninos for lunch today!

I loved it! First time I have tried the place and I really enjoyed this for lunch and would try other styles. I could only eat half but it. But it heated up well the next day. Will order in for my family soon.

Turtle Cheesecake

Absolutely delectable! The portion is large enough to share (or midnight snack), and the presentation is truly elegant. Though I'm closer to the westside location, i prefer the quaint nostalgia of the downtown location. ps. The vegy panino (with zucchini instead of onions) has been my favorite one and only for over 25 years!

PESTO CHICKEN

I finally was able to try out the famous Paninos! My husband has been telling me about these Paninos for years. I am so glad I was able to experience the deliciousness! I ordered the chicken pesto, it was perfect! Keep up the good work!! I look forward to coming back and trying them all!

Spaghetti Pie Panino

The spaghetti pie panino is literally a beast of a meal. It is AMAZING, and packed with goodness. I get it with italian sausage. Who doesn't want pasta inside a sandwich? Paninos spaghetti sauce is my absolute favorite too... just the right amount of sweetness.

Prime Rib

The prime rib at Paninos is absolutely FANTASTIC! The meat is juicy, flavorful and tender. Additionally, the spaghetti, salad, and garlic bread that come with it are all delicious and packed with flavor! One of the best parts of this meal is just how much food you get! It lasts for several meals making it a great deal in addition to being incredibly tasty. The staff at Paninos are cheerful and efficient, making eating there a great experience from start to finish!

Pepperoni Cheese Sticks

Baked just right, with a nice amount of cheese to pepperoni ratio. I recommend a dip in the warm marinara sauce for the perfect bite!

CREATE YOUR OWN

This was a first-time visit to Panino's. I hate trying new restaurants because it so often ends up being a complete waste of money. The food seems to always be way overpriced and tasteless. Colorado Springs restaurants seem to have the market cornered on tasteless. Our visit took place during the CO-VID 19 restrictions and the dining experience was great. The service was great, I wish I could recall the waitresses name. She was efficient, pleasant, and never overbearing. I had the Create Your Own made up of penne, marinara, and two sausage links. I was pleasantly surprised, really pleased, and very stuffed. This selection came with a side salad and the best thing about the salad...was the BREAD stick. Warm and tasty. The roasted parmesan cheese and garlic were just right and I could actually taste the bread which is very good. Then the Penne was served Pasta belongs in a bowl and that's what they brought me. The penne was stacked like cordwood and piled high as if a long cold winter was expected. The marinara was a hearty gravy, sticking to the penne as all good marinara should. The sausage was mild but still a good solid flavor. Too much to eat, the leftover went home me. I still wanted dessert and cheesecake is the "goto" for me. I opted for the "Turtle" version. FANTASTIC! The bill was promptly provided, quickly reconciled and my card returned. WE WILL be back!

CREATE YOUR OWN

I have been coming to Panino's for years and always get the same thing - the build your own panino with pepperoni and mushrooms, and a side of ranch. It is always delicious!! The customer service is wonderful. Also, I drive all the way to the downtown location because it is my favorite.

I absolutely loved the pizza. Ordered delivery and it arrived hot and fresh within minutes of leaving the oven. The taste was both savory and sweet and satisfied my craving for a great pizza. The crust is tasty and could be eaten without anything.

The Philly Panino is one of a kind! It's a nice break from the monotony of eating the same thing all the time. If you want something that's going to fill you up (& offer a little variety with a side like pasta salad), step outside the box (or into it if you order to go) and order Panino's!

This place is awesome! We had a luncheon catered in for the School Board of Education. Brandon was so amazing every step of the way. The Board absolutely loved the food. In fact it was so good and the prices so reasonable, that now some of the other committees will be calling for catering. GREAT JOB PANINOS!!!
