A week in Colorado Springs

Will be in Colorado Springs for a few days at a clinical meeting at the Broadmoor (that's the only reason we'll be staying at the Broadmoor) Was there once before (6 yrs ago) on my own. Maybe 2 or 3 meals at the BM (not the Penrose Room)--the others will be provided. So we'll have time for maybe 3 dinners, 3 or 4 lunches and 1 breakfast on our own somewhere else--staying near airport for the remaining part of trip. My DW does not like hot-n-spicy food, or anything too exotic--the Blue Star is about as unusual a place as I will be able to go to--possibly the Bristol microbrewery next door to it, for good local brews if nothing else. Tentatively have chosen the Omelette Parlor for breakfast. Both Conway's Red Top (way overrated--wouldn't go back) and El Tesoro downtown that I went to last time have closed in the interim.Would like some other non-chain suggestions for a meal or three. We are going up Pikes Peak one day, so a place in Manitou Springs afterward would be OK for one meal. A good burger place, German, Oriental (not a buffet) or good local BBQ would all be OK.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Have a car, so distance is not a problem (no, not Denver) Thanx.
