Re: “Frank's Restaurant

Best breakfast spot. Nothing fancy but it's good. Chorizo and eggs.

Re: “Buddy's Grill

Great food- I sometimes eat there 2-3 times a week! Their daily soup is usually excellent and the ever-present french onion is the best in town. For late night eats, this is a far better pick than a gross chain like Applebee's or TGIFriday's.

Re: “Boondocks Lounge

At the sign of the Big Bottle they have the finest unpretentious music venue in town. Great musicians (mostly local, but some blues stars also turn up), a well-used dance floor, pool tables, no pseudos, no pressure to drink. They also put on rockin' benefit performances when the need arises; does that make 'em Boondocks saints?

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

I live in Chicago and was visiting friends in Tucson. We decided to try Bubby's to see how it measured up. I had the Chicago dog and my husband had a burger. We both thought the food was great. We thought we were back in Chitown for a moment until we looked out and everything was beige. We actually went back again before we left Tucson!

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

The food is terrific, the decor is fun, and the service is friendly. Try the hand-cut fries. I overheard a little girl say to her mom, "these fries are better than McDonald's". They are that good!!

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

You can't beat the food! Being from Chicago, it definitely matches up to the best of them. With the Twin Peaks interchange being completed, it will make it much easier to get to this great restaurant, but it is definitely worth it to make your way out now!

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Skybox's atmosphere and entertainment are far better than expected for a Tucson watering hole and dance place. The bands on Friday and Saturday evening play oldies and pop and are the best dancing with class Tucson has had to offer in a long time. The servers are very professional and friendly. The food is of good quality and the price is not bad. It far exceeds places on Tanque Verde, Swan and Ft. Lowell, Campbell and River or Campbell and Skyline as a place for professionals to meet on Friday evening.

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: “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: “Jerry Bob’s

Great food, great price. Also if your military they have great military discounts. It's a great place to feed the whole family on a low budget with some good food. We always seem to have better service at thier broadway location, however the other locations aren't bad either.

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: “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: “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: “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.
