Johnny's Navajo Hogan 

Dining Description:  

Bites 2013: Broasted Chicken

Call it a culinary parlor trick if you must, Johnny's use of a Broaster pressure cooker as glorified on broaster.com. But nobody rational will dispute how damn good this fried chicken is. (Especially no right-minded Dixie boy.) Brining it for half a day leads to super-juicy, tender meat encapsulated by beautifully crunchy skin. Choose from light or dark meat plates, all with two sides. ($8.95 to $10.95)

Pay no attention to this 'real NAVAJO'. I'm part Native myself (I know this guy would not consider me real; Guess what? I don't care) and I am not offended by the name in any way. The Navajo Hogan ROCKS! Why don't you go pick on the KC Chiefs or Cleveland Indians or are you too wasted on Mad Dog 2020?

Great club revived, but not a place for Martini Shot or disco!

As an Irish American I prefer Quinn's, but am really offended when Italians come in when I am drinking a Harp, and they order a Peroni...it offends my tastes and my heritage, and I demand reparations and casino rights on Monument creek.

A biker bar for adults who don't like to fight, but love to eat and drink

I feel sorry for you and those with the problem mentioned although this has nothing to do with this venue, being a drunk is a choice this is not the 1800"s when the Indians were exploited. Help work with your people to honor themselves, no one is forcing anyone, the word Navajo in these times is used w/o prejudice .

A Hogan is a traditional home style of the Navajo people pronounced hooghan in Navajo. The Navajo Hogan in the north of Colorado Springs is of this style, and thus named for it. Stop inside and you can see the original “Hogan” plus the additional “Hogan” that was added late. So Real Navajo Dale get over it because there is something Navajo about this place.

Dale,

We are all Americans at this point. If someone is Irish they might like the drink as much as an Indian, or a Scot or a Kraut. Take responsibility for yourself and don't blame a bunch of folks having a drink and good meal in a place that has such amazing architecture, of which you should be proud.

As a real NAVAJO, who has actually grew up on the Navajo Reservation, I take offense to this establishment's name and business practice. Many native tribes are still struggling with alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide and domestic violence. There is NOTHING Navajo about this place, nor does it compliment my tribe. It is not "honoring" Navajos, it's simply furthering the stereotype that Native Americans are goofy drunks. I will be doing everything I can to spread word about this business' practice and the exploitation therein. Please note.
