Salsa is made at your table FRESH. Many tasty dishes and vege choices. Mariachi band can be a bit loud. Best Mexican restaurant on the east side, by far.
One of our top favorite places to go for a special night. We've been taking our kids since they were babies and the staff knows them and can always find something for them to eat (burger, fish n chips, pasta, etc.) even though there's no "kids' menu". The kind of place where the waitstaff has been there for years. Our favorite time of year is during the RoadTrip menu!

Service was good but the food was excellent, very happy with the experience and woukd come back again! Loved the appetizers. Musseld were great
It's been a favorite of mine for many years. I've been going there since they took over the place from its previous owners. Great for breakfast and lunch. Get there early for lunch because the crowd from D-M fills it up.
When did Lupita's close, the building space is vacant with the sign gone??
The Metzger is excellent. It was my favorite of the 3 specialty tacos. Served with au jus? Creative. Although it was plain as day, I had to ask what it was because it was a surprise to see it accompany a taco. Don't dip it, just dump it on top.
Time your visit for 645pm on a Sunday. Sit on the patio and you'll get an eyeful when Hi Fi across the street raises those massive sunscreens. It's a PG13 glass fishbowl. What a party! Video wall, DJ on stage and Go Go Girls dancing in silhouette on the bar.
Say what you want to about the spotty "service" but I see the General Manager humping it the whole time. That's good enough for me.
As for people constantly wanting to F I L L themselves: those who live in fat asses should not throw stones. Ya Taco Bell pig out monkeys. Stay out of our way if it's possible to move your fat ass aside far enough for others to pass.
Love it for breakfast! Will try it for dinner today. The food is great as is the service.
Outstanding Sunday brunch at a very reasonable price.
If you go this restaurant, you deserve whatever you may get. The food is good; depends on who's cooking. If you appreciate your waitress/waiter, DO NOT tip with your card. Use cash. The owner keeps all the credit card tips for himself, which I don't believe is legal. If you ask him about it, he will politely tell you that only he and the manager are "servers"; even though, many people actually "serve" food at this restaurant...I would also ask how it is that a City Of Tucson Employee could have passed this restaurant after inspection. Eating out is all the same, mostly. Restaurants are filthy....but....they're not all bad. The food can be very pleasing but, there needs to be less attention paid by the owner to female employees and female customers and more towards running a proper business; i.e.-not stealing tips from your employees. Oh...And, it's probably not alright to be drinking on the job.
MY FAVE PLACE. ALWAYS GREAT MUSIC, AND PEOPLE!! GOOOOOD FOOD.
I haven't been disappointed here. The lemon potatoes are amazing, the gyro is succulent and full of flavor, the falafal is one of the best in town. The service has been mostly good, The service is good and swift. This is one of my favorites.
I was not impressed. I felt the portions were small, way over priced, and mediocre at best. I would look elsewhere.
I enjoyed the authentic Polish food. The soup was just right with all the flavors of eastern Europe. The pierogies were yum and the meats imported and full of flavor. I would recommend this place.
This is not Japanese like the headline says. This is pure Chinese food and very good at that. Great dim sum mostly decent service. and atmosphere ain't bad either.
I had got married on the 29th of March and had a little less than 200 people or at least 200 people. we were supposed to get food at 5:00pm for all of our guest Marys lucky dollar didn't come until 7:00pm. My guest where upset hungry and some even left because they couldn't wait any longer to eat due to them being elderly and needing to take medicine. Mary's lucky dollar decided to give my Mother in Law their pots and pans and said to give it to Gabby at Balloon Land that they didn't have enough room and didn't want to wait to finish serving everyone till the food was completely gone. They had called my phone asking for their pots and pans I informed them my mother in law has them. she then stated can you call her and have her drop them off at the balloon land. I did do this and informed my mother in law they needed them that night for a job the following day as soon as they called me. I tried talking to them about them being two hrs late and they just pretended they didn’t know what I said and said we just need our stuff you talk to gabby then hung up. The lady didn't call back nor gave me her name when I asked so I assumed it was taken care of. Two weeks later she calls back again stating we haven't given them their stuff back. So I responded and said Why was the stuff given to my mother in law in the first place it’s not our responsibility to have your stuff that is your guys job to have all of your stuff and be responsible for it at all times. And another thing I would like to know who I speak to about the dinner service you guys where 2 hrs. late and I had guest who had left because of this. She immediately said YOUR A LIAR!!! WE WHERE A COUPLE OF MINS LATE AND THATS IT. You owe us money if anything because we made food for 275 people. I said excuse me???? Did you just call me a liar??? this is how you treat your customers ??? First of all I paid a good amount of money for Gabby to pay you to feed for 200 people and that was at an all you can eat expense as well so that’s not my problem you made more then you were supposed to. What is your name? she said why do you need to know my name you just call gabby and take it up with her!! I said because I need to know who I am speaking to! So may I have your name please? she said Rosa I said ok Rosa and what is your last name? she said why do you need to know this information I said so I can report you for the bad service you did you were 2 hrs. late then you give my mother in law stuff that wasn’t hers to make it her responsibility and now you are calling me a liar and saying I owe you money when i paid 5500 for all of this to be perfect and it wasn’t!!!! well Roberto said it was good service and yes and who is Roberto was he my husband ?? was he the one who paid for all of this to happen???? No it was me and my husband and I’m telling you it was not a good service because you were 2 hrs. late may I speak to your manager. She then just stuttered um um um I said Rosa are you the manager or owner? she said no I said ok I need to speak to someone above your head please put your manager on the phone but she can’t speak to you because she doesn’t know. She doesn’t know what? She doesn’t know English so you need to take it up with gabby if you have a problem. I said oh I will and may I have your last name please or do I need to record this call? And she hung up. How rude of this place to one call me a liar when i have 200 witness stating when the food came and when it should have been then and two giving other people their stuff that she should be responsible for so now im getting harassed. This was suppose to go perfect considering it was my wedding day and it didn't but i was willing to talk bout it until i was called a LIAR and now im going to make sure this get's handled properly i don't care what it takes! NO ONE SHOULD GET TREATED THIS WAY AND I SURE WOULDN'T WANT IT TO BE THE NEXT COUPLES WEDDING TO GET SCREWED OVER AS WELL!
This place is terrible. overpriced food and obnoxious bands. it was empty when i went there and the staff didnt seem to care. good luck surviving the summer
Best burrito's in the world! I don't live in Tucson but am going to retire there just so that I can get these vegetarian burritos twice a day for the rest of my life. I've tried them all and haven't found anything bad to say about anything. The service is GREAT and the staff are some of the most beautiful young ladies I have ever met. I hope that they all stay employed there even after graduating from the University of Arizona "GO KATS"! They don't deserve a five star rating but that is the highest it goes! They deserve a twenty million star rating!
Love the place. They clearly care about the food they make. They search for good ingredients. I eat there a couple of times a week. Coffees really good. The salmon sandwich has a Meyer lemon condiment. Not sure staff knows how to use it. Most of the time, 2 out of 3, there is far too much of it, It’s very salty, it overwhelms the sandwich.
