Re: “Teresa's Mosaic Café

Teresa's is the only decent restaurant in a 5-mile radius from home -- and I eat there weekly. The service is great, the food is well-prepared and the platinum margarita's are delicious. Varied specials are always good. Peak evenings in the winter months can mean a 20-30 minute wait. Fortunately, platinum margaritas are available to help you while away the time.

Re: “La Fresita

The place is dirty and now they put anti SB1070 signs up all over the place and are refusing to speak English to customers.
I will never eat they again.

Re: “El Charro Café on Oracle

A disappointment. Major problem with portion control. The famous carne seca platter came with a 1/4 - 1/3 pound portion of beef not the 1/2 pound as listed on the menu and the sides have also shrunk. The pozole stew was too much broth.

Re: “Lupita's Cafe

TBG is one of those people who orders the same thing whenever he's trying a new restaurant. In the case of mexican food, it's always beef tacos in crispy corn tortillas. Along with the world's largest quesadilla and a Sonoran hot dog to die for, today's lunch at Lupita's included "the very best..... by miles...." beef tacos in Tucson.

Re: “Lerua's

Leruas is simply one of our Tucson restaurant gems.

Mike and his crew churn out some of the most delicious Mexican food in town.
The restaurant has a long and successful history. Excellent quality, fast and friendly service.

Try a "Hank" or a Carne Asada topopo or chicken taco salad.
Great take out menu selections.

This restaurant should be on your MUST TRY list.

Re: “Casa Molina

Low quality, yet fairly, cheap Mexican food. Multiple locations. However none are any better than the other.

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

This place is amazing. The music is loud and your food is served up with love. You can taste how happy the workers are in the delicious food. Plus, they give to those in need each month. Try a basil pineapple drink and eat every bit of salad they put on your plate. Little Poca Cosa is rejuvenating and reminds me what I love about Tucson.

Re: “Café Poca Cosa

Still one of the best places in Tucson. Not as nice as it used to be in the old hotel location, the music has changed, the view is bad, and instead of flowers, plants and artifacts, it is steel, and more streamlined. However, the house margaritas are still great, the salsa freshly made, the carne asada tender and flavorful. I preferred the old lively place with the homemade dressing in wine bottles on each table...but I am glad she is still around and doing her magic in the kitchen. Suzanna showed Tucson a new form of Mexican cooking, without heavy cheeses, guacamole, and nachos; instead she cooks in the Sonoran style and that is light, flavorful, and memorable food. Thank you Suzanna!

Re: “Crossroads Restaurant Drive In

I was pleasantly surprised with the food here. I was put off by the whole drive thru thing but truth be told, a delicious mexican resturant that does authentic sea food and a six pack of negro modello though a window?!?! You can't beat that shit!! Plus sitting and eating was nice as well.

Re: “El Sur

Nice place, old time Tucson feel. Really like that they have full menu from the time they open. Great old fashioned patty tacos.

Re: “Lerua's

One of the top Mexican restaruants in town, I've been eating there for 40 years. Best chimi by far (not the grease bombs you find elsewhere) Everyone knows the green corn tamales are the best anywhere.Fond, fond memories of eating there during H.S. (THS) With my buddies.

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

It's hard to believe that this place is related to the Big Cafe Poca Cosa. It is incredibly loud, the service is perfunctory at best, and the food is pedestrian. Indeed, it is more like what you would expect at a stand, and having said that, most stands are better. Avoid.
