I'm not a big fan of the NY style pizza, but I've got to say that these guys have a great pie. The bar in the back is a nice little hangout joint and the pizza slices come out hot and fast. Well done. Also nice to see a long line at 2:15 after the bars close.
Been going to this restaurant for years. Excellent food. Great ambience. Lunch buffet is a
A Wonderful, Unique place to unwind and have a cup (or seven) of tea! The well-informed staff will explain things about tea to you that you never would have guessed, making the enjoyment of their vast selection that much more fun.
Best Hot and Sour soup ever!!! mmmmm...rich and very flavorful!
WOW! The other reviewer must have had a bad day...I went here with my family same exact day as the other reviewer's post. We must have been in different restaurant's. Our meals were outstanding and just the right portions. Service was great too, with our waitress continually asking us if we needed anything and promptly refilling drinks. I had the chicken schwarma with salad and motabal. Schwarma's are meant to be eaten with pita...they are not just plates of meat, hence the reason why they are not big chunks of meat. The chicken had some kind of paprika onions and a sauce that tasted like tahini - really good. The motabal was a roasted eggplant dip that had a really good depth of flavor. The rice, by the way, is not intended to be a "saffron rice" as the other reviewer posted. It was a buttery rice that was probably cooked in chicken broth. It was neither tasteless or dry. If you favor gigantic portions of fat laden food you should stick to McDonald's. If you want very flavorful food with great service, go here. This was a great place and a great experience.
Magpies is hands down the best pizza in tucson and it shows because im pretty sure they've won tucson weekly's best pizza award something ridiculous like 15 times in a row. this place is definitely the place to go when your craving a good pizza
Acacia has moved to Gallery Row, at East Skyline/North Campbell Ave, upstairs, overlooking the whole city and valley below. Refurbished the former Sur Real location, they will be adding an outdoor patio, off one of the other dining rooms to accomodate more that 100.
Terrific views! Much better than the St. Phillips location.
This is my favorite food ! My husband and I have been having lunch at the buffet every weekend for 10 years. Yummy.
The chocolate babka on Fridays.....oh my god.
Only speaking of the campus location. Best gyro in town, hands down! Great fries, reasonable prices and staff have always been freindly.
I lived in Tucson for 38 years, I ate at Michas at least once a week for many of those years. The best breakfasts, best Chimichangas, best machaca in town. I left Tucson five years ago and one for the things I miss most is Machaca and Eggs at Michas.
About a year ago I made a brief visit to the Old Pueblo, Michas was still there, the food still good and now I miss it even more.
Absolutely delicious and authentic! I've been to Peru a couple times and Inca's brings Peru to Tucson. Tried the ceviche mixto, anticuchos, conchitos a la chalaca and papa rellena. All very good (ceviche was a little spicy for my liking, but still good!) and where else are you gonna find pisco sours? I was completely transported back to Peru, and will be going back to Inca's again and again!
I love this place! Great food (had the fajitas, burros, seafood). Servings are large - I am able to take 1/2 home for lunch next day. Great beans. Good Margaritas. (Happy hour they are only $3!) Women will make salsa at your table - free, but they have a basket for donations.
It is one of the few restaurants in Tucson I will wait for a seat to open up. (FYI...not many around. Since Tucson is so blessed with so many great restaurants we can usually find one with no wait, even on weekends.)
Sertinos Cafe closed May 2010.
The wings are unbeatable here. Tried many others in Tucson and they cannot compete with Rocco's! The Great Chicago Fire pizza is hot, spicy and very delicious. We always order a large so we have leftovers for that hangover the next day!!! Another favorite is the Caprese Salad, first of all, it's huge enough to share and they do not skimp with the mozzarella at all, the basil is fragrant and flavorful, but the star of this salad is definitely the balsamic, we are sure it is homemade and it is appreciated! And do not, I repeat, do not leave without trying one of Lisa's cookies! They are usually out of them, so if you notice there are some when you get there, grab 'em and save them for later, you'll be glad you did. The servers are quick, friendly and attentive. And they have a nice selection of brews.
Yep, there's a reason for the packed parking lot and the wait!
Quiet, cozy, comfortable, a "gem". Excellent food and great service. I've had the cheese by the ounce and have been able to try many different varieties, it is served with fresh pears and a raspberry jam that complements the cheeses perfectly! The Wild Mushroom Salad is to die for, every bite of the delicious meatiness of the mushrooms, spicy crunchiness of the pecans and sweet tangy bacon vinaigrette satisfied me beyond my expectations, I've ordered this salad on three different visits, it's just that good! The grilled pineapple pound cake is light but indulgent and a perfect end to a perfect meal!
I own a little breakfast place myself but love to go here. This is one of those old americana style diners that unfortunately is a dying breed. If you go - come with the expectations of having a great old "diner experience" order the bacon, scrambled eggs, toast and hash browns while browsing the old vinyl record sleeves posted on the wall above the cooking area.
Service was great, the server was a delightful and conversational woman. The buffet lunch was fantastic. I am a vegetarian so I stuck with the vegetarian items. Samosas were great, fluffy, and flavorful. The curries had a wonderful taste. I have never been to India Oven for dinner, but hope to in the future. I would recommend this place to anyone.
I found Saffron's food excellent. Value for money as well as quality on par w/ my experiences back home in the UK and Mother India herself. My only suggestion is to skip the buffett and order from the menu.
The chocolate cake and the views is enough to keep you going back... and the food is good too!
