Re: “Mimi's Café

Can't believe I spent sixty dollars on some of the worst food in my life. Does the cook not have taste buds or just not taste his food?

Re: “Mimi's Café

Terrible food that tastes like it came from a fast food dollar menu. Worse service.

Re: “Bobo's Restaurant

I've been working as a busser here for the last few months, and all I can say is... DAMN THIS FOOD IS AWESOME!!! I get a free meal twice a day and can't get sick of it! We have so many regulars it's hard for anyone else to get a seat. I have never worked in a restaurant that get's half this busy. Have you ever seen a waiting list on a tuesday at 10-30 in the morning? You will here. The omelettes are made with 4 eggs, and that's only one fifth of the whole thing. God I love it here, and I know you will too!!!

Re: “Boondocks Lounge

Boondocks does an excellent job of promoting a large diversity of live music. One of the best venues in Tucson for the many genres covers.

Re: “Mother Hubbard's Cafe

I go there for breakfast once or twice per week

$1.99 breakfast special is more than enough food;

waitress and service is outstanding.

And the coffee is great

My bill was $4.00

a lot cheaper than IHOP

I totally recommend this place

Re: “Boondocks Lounge

I think they finally got the stench of cigarette smoke out of there. It took a few years. Not bad bar. Acoustics OK. Lot of room. Also have gotten rid of most of the trouble makers from the old days of Neon Prophet. Kitchen has surprisingly good fare. All in all I think I have to give it 5 stars.

Re: “Mother Hubbard's Cafe

The strip mall is dumpy, and the interior of Mother Hubbard's doesn't win for style. What they do have is great service, great food, and fair prices. My wife and I have been there for breakfast and lunch. It's pretty much a scratch prep for everything. Their locally sourced and created ingredients are top notch. Food with character!

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

It was Bocatta, sad that it closed as it was very good

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

No review, does anyone remember what this place was originally called. It was a almost fine dining restaurant with a intimate bar. I was a regular at Happy Hour in 94-95. Which probably explains why I can't remember the name.

Re: “HomeTown Buffet

I arrived at 6:15 p.m on a Wednesday. I gave one star because there was no zero rating. Why?

#1. The atmosphere was dingy, dirty and broken down. The carpet had more food stains than the steam table at it's worst. There were holes in the carpet. I noticed wet cleaning rags left on the floor in various corners of the serving stations.

#2. The food, if you can call it that was unlabeled. You were not always sure what you were selecting. The food was tepid to cool at best. No one was at the carving station. The ham looked like it had been around for a day too long to be eaten. The food basically tasted like it had remained in the same steam-table pan since the lunch hour, rather than replacing the old pan with a fresh pan of hot food.

#3. The soft serve ice cream machine was broken. Yet there was soft serve drippings on the nozzles and on the catch tray. The dessert station was woeful. One or two crumbled pieces of cake on a cake plate. Three or four cookies here or there on different trays. A few dishes of each selection on trays. It looked like the day's before leftovers.

#4. The help were basically helpful and courteous. No complaints about them.

All-in-all, if you're looking for a fair-priced enjoyable dinner buffet, avoid this one!

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

I truly enjoyed the ‘Bubby’s Chicago Style’ dining experience because the food is simply yummy! My youngest boy and his friends frequent the place, and each said I should try the Chicago dog… On my first visit, I tried their Chicago dog and was impressed. Not because I’ve been to the East coast and know everything, but because it pleased my taste buds, and so much that I ordered a second. I’ve returned to enjoy other menu items and found the charbroiled taste that comes with their burgers or chicken salad to be perfect!

The staff appears to be neighborhood youth with a hint of shyness but eager and responsive. Bubby’s Chicago Style provides the three basic ingredients for success: Great food, great service and respect for their customers.

Re: “The Onyx Room

My wife and I had a VERY positive experience at the Onyx Room a few weeks back. The KJ's (Kevin & Sharon) were outstanding and the music quality was the BEST! We would recommend it to all that enjoy good Karaoke and great surroundings.

Re: “The Loop Taste of Chicago

Food was fair and the service was worse... Much worse.
Save your money, or better yet, go down the road and eat at J Marinara's!

Re: “Mays Counter Chicken and Waffles

Just went there in mid-June, 2011. Wasn't sure about fried chicken and waffles, but both are very well done! I had the chicken breasts and they were so moist, and very large. The waffles are very egg and the maple syrup delicious. I would give 5 stars except that I think they should put more vegetables on the menu. This is not authentic Southern food, but it's just a step away (substitute hush puppies for waffles...). So Southern vegetables such as mustard greens, carrots, squash, collard greens, would round out the meals nicely. I gather they have okra, though I missed it on the menu.

Re: “Firebirds Wood Fired Grill

What could be a reasonable restaurant is totally ruined by this chain's ridiculous overuse of salt. Every single menu item we've tried has been saturated with salt. In fact, the last time we went my lips felt parched from all the salt. I'm not kidding! We told the manager yet all he did was essentially deny the obvious fact of how they prepare their food. His loss because we're now done with Firebirds.

We guarantee you'll be blow away by Firebird's total overuse of salt. Think we're exaggerating? Find out for yourself, if you dare.

Re: “Toni's Family Restaurant

Standard diner fare, ate there twice. First had the chicken fried steak breakfast, very good, thin large steak cooked old fashioned style on the flat top vice deep frying, asked for scrambled eggs soft and that's how I got them. Second time, burger platter, asked for medium, done right! Fries were so hot and fresh I burnt my fingers at first. Super fast delivery, almost no waiting and they were busy. Only complaint was the waitress reeked of cheap perfume, but I guess that's a diner!

Re: “Solaris Restaurant

wow talk about BAD service, over priced... bad bad bad, I went in with my children and right away got the cold shoulder. It took the waitress well over an hour to even serve our salads and appetizer, and when I ordered shirly temples for my 3 kids (ages 2,4 and 12) she brought them all in wine glasses... for a 2 year old! they were out of some main greek dishes and after complaining about the wait the manager did not even come over to check on me. I went on 2 separate occasions because I beleive in 2nd chances and both times were very bad experiances!
