Re: “Blue Willow

I really don't understand the draw here. I really thought it was going to be something when we got there 10 minutes before they opened and there were 20 people waiting outside. Unremarkable food, I think it's just a place for grey haird ponytail guys and their women in tiedyed skirts.

Re: “Frank's Restaurant

Wonderful breakfasts. Great hash browns. Staff friendly and attentive. Biscuits and gravy are not so good, but the chorizo and eggs or huevos rancheros make up for it.

Re: “Maynards Market and Kitchen

Maynards food was really fantastic - creative and fresh. We adored the cheese selection. The compliments stop there. Period. The waitress was a ditz. Thought princess edward island - the source of the mussels- was in the pacific. We only got attended to about once every 20 mins and only when asked. Saturday night dinner was busy but not overwhelming so we remained patient when it took 10 mins to get our first drinks. It just went downhill from there. Dinner came 1 hour and 30 mins after ordering. Out of sequence and cold. When we complained, the manager was insulting, condescending, and outright obnoxious. Proceeded to tell me 2 hours is a normal wait time for dinner. I reminded him good restaurant experiences are a combination of good food and great service. They failed miserably on the latter and the 22 year old manager proceeded to be indignant. When I commented that this actually was my 40th birthday celebration (no kidding), and the service plus his indignation sent the whole evening south, he said "we take pride in our food" .....in the end, the bill was only reduced by a fraction, furious....and we didn't even get a cappuccino we ordered at the end. These guys BLOW.. Worst dinner experience ever. NEVER GO HERE... EVER.......Till they figure out that the customers happiness pays there indignant pompous paychecks, the place needs to go under..

Re: “Ruby Tuesday

The burgers are huge. Fortunately, for those of us who like our burgers barely done, all burgers can be cooked to order and the heart hospital is just across the street! Bison burgers are available. Has a full bar with a few TV's to watch your favorite sports programs. Wines can be ordered by the glass (6 oz. and 8 oz.) or by the bottle. The salad bar has quite a variety of items and can be a meal in itself.

Re: “Arizona Family Restaurant

Living in Green Valley, there are still a limited number of good restaurants even though the town has grown a great deal. Arizona Family restaurant is a popular and very good restaurant. It has a huge menu of American favorites and most are prepared consistently and well. I love the liver and onions, The Slim Platter, chicken fried steak, baked cod and, most of all, the best French Dip I have ever had. It's because of the roll they use-nice and fresh but a firm consistency that doesn't fall apart. The restaurant is large and is very busy. Fish Fry on Friday is just okay. I believe they have a baked apple for desert. One room even has an old fashioned counter. It is beautifully decorated for whatever holiday is being celebrated. This adds to a fun, uplifting atmosphere.

Re: “Firebirds Wood Fired Grill

Although I'm generally among the younger diners (at the ripe young age of 51), a variety of folks dine on the meat here. The lunch crowd is generally composed of groups of businesswomen and older shoppers. The best filet mignon is served at lunch. For whatever reason, the steaks seem to get lower in quality as the day wears on. Dinner has a more varied clientele and the scene is more active than at lunch. The wine list is serviceable and the "Firebirds Red" is a pretty good value.

Re: “Joe's Cafe

Fantastic sandwiches, quiches, salads, soups, bread. Best lunch near UA.

Re: “Tanque Verde Ranch

One slice of Old Tucson that hasn't changed for the worse. The dining room is a classic and the lunch buffet is endless. I'm not saying the food is going to be in the New York Times, but it is well prepared, the selection is enormous, and its a lot of fun. When you walk to the dining room past the corral you know you are in the West. Take a out of towner, they will never forget, then give yourself a treat on go on Sunday and revile in your good judgment.

Re: “The Good Egg

The food is usually very good. I love that they bring a pitcher of water and coffee to the table.. The prices are a little high, but their menu selection is great. Service is usually friendly and efficient. I'm glad they are opening one at River and Oracle.

Re: “Toni's Family Restaurant

Toni's used to be decent, but something happened. They had a couple of good servers, but now they're gone. The last couple of times I was there, my server was too busy running outside to smoke to refill my coffee. I never did get a refill. And the food simply isn't consistent. I guess the "real" cook has to have a day off sometime. All in all, I used to really like this place, but I won't be going back anymore. Sorry, Toni. You're a nice lady, but your help needs help.

Re: “Jerry Bob’s

Just don't watch the servers make the salads using their hands.

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Went a few weeks ago to check out 80's and Gentleman and thought it was pretty damn good! The band was tight and the atmosphere was fun. There seemd to be a mixed crowd of all ages and somewhat of a small cult following with their 80's dress theme going on. The band broke out some songs I really hadn't heard in a long time and it was apparent they have it together. As a bonus, I was able to take my drink outside with me to a burn a smoke. Can't comment on the food but the drinks seemed to come without any noticeable problems so all in all, I had a fun night and will definately go again.

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.

Re: “Pastiche Modern Eatery

Beautiful atmosphere, Great food, nice wine list and realistic price, Outstanding service a great place for a special event. Almost like a Manhattan Resturant but not cramped tables, and no surly attitude. Great for a Specail event. Please do not ruin the atmosphere by bringing unruly children.

Re: “Bobo's Restaurant

Food is not as good since Denny the cook left.
But still a bargain.
Unfriendly staff.

Re: “Bread and Butter Café

The food is fast, consistent and good. As a friend from East Europe said, "It is a coffee shop just like in American movies."
