Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Oh man! Live and learn. One of the worst Middle Eastern / Greek, whatever you wanna call it restaurants this side of the Mississippi. We are sorry to sound so harsh but it was plain awful. On a positive note there are a couple of decent places for this style of cuisine in the area but we won't name names and play favorites here.

Re: “Boston's The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

No very good at all. That's what our party of five ended up saying after eating dinner here. I highly doubt any of us will come back as the food isn't happening here.

Re: “Bob Dobbs

"Proud to serve" and "RC cola" should never be used in the same sentence, unless you're into sarcasm. Overpriced, and very average.

Re: “Pinnacle Peak

Its the atmosphere which makes this place a destination. The food is average at best. The open grille area is fun to watch and be sure you are not a soft talker or your dining companions will not be able to hear you.

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: “Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant

Old school Italian circa 1960's. Nothing fantastic, just solid mainline Italian style cooking. Exactly what one might expect next to a military base. Joe's special is noodles and cheese with little more than a dollup of tomato sauce.

Re: “Barrio Brewing Company

Stopped by to try the beer. Was not impressed. Prefer Nimbus.

Re: “Boston's The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

I ate at this restaurant Saturday night with my son. We ate in the bar area. It had a great atmosphere. Lot's of big screen TVs. Good selection of beers on tap.

Service was pretty good except I had to track down the server when I wanted my check (I really hate that).

We ordered some wings for an appetizer. They were pretty good by western NY state standards. I ordered an individual sized veggie pizza and my son ordered a small "Chicken Da Vinci" pizza. The pizzas both "looked nice" and had fresh ingredients.

And now for my big beef with this place,... Both pizzas were UNDER BAKED. The middles of the pizzas were lukewarm with the cheese only slightly melted. The cheese was not browned at all. The crusts were not browned at all. None of the ingredients had blended. It just tasted like the individual lukewarm ingredients. Also, the pizza crusts were prefabricated and bland

If they baked the pizzas a few extra minutes they would have a much better product. After all, the words "Gourmet Pizza" are in their name.

Would I go back? I'm on the fence. There wasn't one thing that stood out that would make me want to go back. Since I have to make a recommendation I have to say "No".

(reading the description) "Some chains do it right. " And this one isn't one of them. Not to say I have anything against TGI Fridays; there are sone that actually are good. Just not this particular branch. Portions are very small, service is slow, and the quality just wasn't that good. Pick a different TGI Fridays if you want something familiar. I will never eat here again.

Re: “P.F. Chang's China Bistro

"one of Tucson’s most popular places to be seen"

I rather eat great Chinese food than be seen - and all you can do here is be seen and buy over-priced, mediocre, not really Chinese food. Save you image and go to Vancouver, San Fran, Hong Kong, etc and learn about real Chinese food. You don't need "a chic, eclectic ambience" - you need to know what real food tastes like - or be seen at MacDonald's.

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: “Barrio Brewing Company

The truth is I really want to love this place. I absolutely love to drink and brew beer. I live downtown and the Barrio Brewery is easily walking distance from my house. It's got a really great environment. The Problem is the beer is just so terrible. Literally every single beer they make is criminally wrong. The from the IPA to the Porters and Stouts everything is just off (and it's hard to screw up a stout). Beyond that the beer actually makes me ill. Every time I go there and have more than one or two beers I get sick. I also know other people who have said the same thing.
If your not a beer connoisseur then head on over. If you are, do yourself a favor and order a shot of tequila with your burger.

Re: “Caruso's

Very nice outdoor patio agreat day to spend an evening. If only the food was good, its a shame that Caruso's can't have a chef that makes authentic and delicious Italian food. Every time I have been here I am disappointed with the food.

Re: “CrossFit Works

I didn't love the atmosphere at CrossFit Works. Maybe some do, but I found the owners to be stuffy and not very helpful. Perhaps I caught them on a bad day.

Re: “Amereno's Little Italy

Two stars at the very most. Food is mediocre (service is excellent), and it doesn't take American Express Cards. I'm a business traveler, our business card is American Express, and not accepting American Express is the kind of attitude that keeps travelers away. We can get mediocre food at franchise without the hassle of dipping into our own pockets.

Re: “Dickey's Barbecue Pit

Others like this place, but it's not my kind of barbecue. I've been there twice and the meat was cold both times. It's served without sauce - you add your choice of sauce. The meat is smoked, but not well seasoned - it's very bland without the sauces. The sauces are ho-hum. The sides are ho-hum.

Re: “El Paso Bar-B-Que

Very formulaic but decent SW-style BBQ etc. A bit high in price for what you get. Also, the interior is way too dark. I kept wondering what it was they didn't want me to see.

Re: “Sushi Garden

This might be a good place to get cheap sushi, but not so much high quality. I'm originally from Hawaii, so I know fresh fish, and what I got here made me pause even just looking at it. Eating it did not improve my estimate.

I've been brought there a couple of times by friends that love it, so clearly it works for some people, but I will turn down any future invitations to eat there.

Re: “Cottage Bakery and Cafe

I keep on hoping this place will catch on since its on my side of town. The set up is fun and comfortable, great for small get togethers with firends. The food however is uninspired. The baked goodies are great, but if your looking for a light meal its not so great. Not horrible, just plain and sometimes not as fresh as I'd like.

Re: “Cushing Street Restaurant and Bar

The food was merely adequate, and the service was downright bizarre: we were in the middle of our appetizers when the main course was served. That's lousy kitchen management.
