Re: “Kon Tiki

Great place there is nothing like it in Tucson but everyone knows that and it it is not big enough to hold everyone who wants to start there night off

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Great sports bar and the crowd is all ages and has a great veiw you can relax and not worry about fights and even worse I have notice in other parts of the city it seems dirty with lots of mad people this place is a good time for people that like to have a drink in peace and watch a game, now if your the type of person who needs alot of drama in your night life then maybe you could stay on your side of town and go to your local dirty south tucson bar

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

I thought it was a fun place. Nice TVs to watch sports and fun bands - especially on Fridays. My dinner was excellent too.

Re: “Bread and Butter Café

Been going there for over 25 years! Our all time favorite. (Even though we don't live nearby any more, we still trek there at least once/week!!)

Mexican grill - delicious
Pies good, but banana bread better (pumpkin bread during thanksgiving - wish year round)
good, hot coffee
(If you are into liver & onions, also very good -- nice and tender)

Re: “The Loop Taste of Chicago

I was excited to try The Loop Taste of Chicago when I discovered it. Wow! It met every expectation. The atmosphere is fun with lots of Chicago sports memorabilia, the menu is surprisingly versatile with something for any palate. And the food... let's start by saying this was the best pizza I have had west of Chicagoland!! Not only the pizza, but I have enjoyed everything I have tried. Whether I want to watch a game in the bar with friends, or have dinner with family, this is my favorite local spot. It is easy to find - just north on Oracle as you come into Oro Valley sharing the parking lot with the Holiday Inn Express. I highly recommend this place for everybody and every occasion!!!

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

A friend told me about this and said they have bands so I checked it out over the weekend. In a work the place is dull. Not horrible or anything but it's pretty dull. I guess I would go back but I am in no hurry to do so.

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Was hoping for a better experience. The vide isn't happening here. The food isn't really worth the prices and the sound system is sorta low budget. Wish this place were better as there isn't much else around this area.

Re: “Austin's Old Fashioned Ice Cream

I just went to Austin's and the everything was disappointing. The services is sooooo slow and the price of the food (diner food) is off the charts. They upcharge for french fries instead of chips and then they give you very little. The shakes don't come out with the meal but after you're almost finished eating and ready to go. I can't not express to you enough how overly priced the food is. Please choose another diner in the future.

Re: “Gooch's Grill

Terrible service and mediocre food. I ordered a "patty melt" which consisted of a slab of beef and a piece of cheese on toasted white bread. I do not recommend this place to anyone.

Re: “Bobo's Restaurant

Great dinner breakfast, fast service, great bacon and the pancakes are big. No, I mean really rather large.

Re: “Hacienda del Lago

We live out here in Vail and have seen this place go from good to horrible real fast. Is there a new owner? The manager is about as inviting and classy as a used sanitary napkin on a table! I guess you get what you pay for, obviously a non- experienced manager is cheap and easy help! We won't come back as well as all of our neighborhood friends. We have had it with this place! Owner must be a retard!

Re: “Kon Tiki

This is a great place to have a paradise experience. They service unique drinks and Polynesian food. This is the famous place that has the Scorpion drink servered in a fish bowl. You have to go on your 21st birthday don't miss out on your experience of the Scorpion.

Re: “Chicago Bar

Small bar with a tiny stage for bands. Owner books the same two bands over and over. Not enough good new talent. Same old same old. Not real bad or anything, however, a lot of burnt out smoker frequent this dive.

Re: “Burger City

I was very excited about going to Burger City for lunch. I'd read a good review in the Tucson Weekly's "Cheap Eats". But when myself and some co-workers arrived there, a lady met us at the (unlocked) front door with a frown and "We're closed." I peered about the room to see a dozen patrons of various ages happily enjoying their lunch.

The lady must have seen the puzzled look on my face, so she repeated, "We're closed."

That's it. No explanation, no apology, no nothing. Just randomly closed on a Wednesday at noon. WTF?

Re: “Hacienda del Lago

We have lived in the Vail area for over 2 years and have found this to be one of the best places to eat in the area. They have nightly specials and the regular menu has a lot of variety. They do close a bit early in the summer and sometimes the service is a little slow. They have had some changes over the last year or so but they have weathered this surprisingly well. They are very competitive price wise and have reduced prices to keep everyone coming back during the economic downturn. Try the Thursday night special for 2 with wine included it is great.

Re: “Frank's Restaurant

My absolute favorite breakfast spot! Blueberry french toast, or swiss mushroom omelettes, iced mocha, friendly service in total small diner/greasy spoon atmosphere ... the perfect balance of energy and satisfaction. A gem.

Re: “Hacienda del Lago

I'm surprised to hear these comments as we find the place much more inviting. That original Chef was out there, and Fido the manager treated us like we were a burden for coming in for dinner. The food is great and friendly service. I don't know who eats dinner between 7 and 9, but you must not have kids.

We love the place! One might think it is high end, but it is very family friendly. $3.00 kids meals with ice cream? This place is a must if your in the Vail area. And go during happy hour, great drink prices.

Re: “Hacienda del Lago

I'm happy to find this review as I was thinking of trying this place again. I will not bother!
Hacienda Del Lago was really good about two or three years ago.
Good enough I recommended it to friends. For some reason their chef left and instantly they went into the toilet. Too bad as there is very little in the Vail area besides Montgomery's biker bar from hell.
Nico's is the best restaurant since Cione's Pizza closed for good.
