Re: “Mi Nidito

The best part dining here are the frozen Margaritas. The food does not merit the wait, not much different than street fare.

Re: “El Charro Café on Oracle

Horrible horrible customer service, the food was cold when it came out and they just recently raised the price of almost everything by $1 - I would pay the price if they had half a clue how to manage and treat their customers. This is my 2nd bad exp. as I gave them a 2nd chance thinking the first time was maybe just a bad day for them. Wrong!!!! I will NEVER eat at this location again - nor will any of our friends or family.

Re: “Taqueria Pico de Gallo

LOVE their food, mediocre rating due to slow service and when they run out of something, you don't know until you don't get your food.

Re: “El Rio Bakery

El Rio Bakery has been a Barrio Hollywood hidden secret to many who do not live on the Westside, but perhaps no more with the deserved attention the Weekly is giving it. Great food (and not only the baked goods) and a great atmosphere. I will never understand why Tania's does so well across the street, when El Rio is so clearly superior.

The mural inside is a must see -- but you can also hang out at a picnic table outside and watch Grande Avenue traffic go by. Sunday's can get crowded from St. Margaret's church-goers across the street, so you may have trouble parking then.

And don't forget the other two great restaurants right on Grande: Maricos Chihuahua and El Sabrosos. Along with El Rio, Grande Avenue has a "Holy Trinity" of fantastic eats.

Re: “Mi Nidito

This is the real deal in spite of the hype of the past decade since "the president" dined here. The food is authentic; fattening and rich in Sonoran style sauces and traditions. The building is but a hole in the wall but it's owners and staff put out flavorful favorites; my personal pick: chicken enchiladas. You'll have a wait if you go at normal mealtimes. My advice: go at an off hour and enjoy!

Re: “La Botana Taco Grill and Cantina

they got the best Chicharrones on flour tacos in town. The Queso Fundito with extra chorizo and mushrooms while waiting for the tacos is pretty good too.
Then..... their Flan!!!!

Re: “Café Poca Cosa

Always a delight. Wished they served at the bar though.

Re: “Guadalajara Grill West

Our first couple of times we were impressed and found a new favorite for Mexican food in Tucson. Since the move to the new location we've been there twice and were disappointed each time. Once chips were brought to our table soggy! and I had a Carne Asada steak brought to me raw! Too big too fast?

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!
