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: “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: “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: “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."

Re: “Golden Corral

Good food here, but you have to pick and choose. Salads are better than Sweet Tomato as is the fruit. Steaks if cooked right are good.

Stay away from some of the fried stuff and nasty side dishes.

Re: “Austin's Old Fashioned Ice Cream

The service is usually good, the food is a bit expensive but served in large portions. The chili is really good, but the ice cream is definitely what stands out! You have to go to Austin's at least once, if only to try the amazing ice cream.

Re: “Omar's Hi-Way Chef Restaurant

The portions are very big, and usually worth the price! The wait staff is well trained, and generally decent and attentive, plus the desserts are great. There are also a lot of options to choose from if you're a picky eater (like I am).

Re: “Omar's Hi-Way Chef Restaurant

Reasonably priced and it's usually a challenge to clean your plate as the portions are very generous. I like that you can have breakfast at dinner if you don't want as heavy a meal.

Re: “Golden Corral

I like the concept of a buffet--I can see the food and select that of it I wish. Golden Corral has better quality food than Hometown Buffet (which I'm convinced uses instant mashed potatoes.)

On occasion, food items aren't labeled. But my chief disappointment is that over recent months, Golden Corral only puts out thighs and legs in the fried chicken bin. One used to be able to also get wings and breasts--I guess using only dark meat saves them money, but unfortunately I only like white-meat chicken.

Lastly, it would be nice if one could serve one's self with respect to the beverages (which Hometown Buffet offers) instead of having to rely on a waitperson to refill a drink.

Re: “The Hungry Fox Restaurant and Country Store

I like the place, breakfasts are great but the last time I ordered keilbasa and eggs, it was prepared just fine and served well but I think though they could at least go with Hillshire farms keilbasa instead of a split Bar-S economy Polish.

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: “Bubby's Chicago Style

Friendly servers but other than that we really weren't impressed with the food. Having lived back east we had great dogs and deli food. Want a really great hot dog? Try a simple Sabrret, Coney Island or Nathan's dog with just a few of the standard toppings. This way you'll actually be able to taste the product. Jalapenos, pickles, mayo... Forget it!

In any case, I wish the business well. However, even with the new on/off ramp now being open the location is unlikely to draw lots of patrons. Let's hope their lease is reasonable. As a former business owner, I know all too well how many hands, (taxes, worker's comp., electric bill, etc..), are in your pocket every month. It's tuff making it.

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Skybox needs to add a Fri & Sat night schedule to website. Including a little forecast into the future for planning purposes. This would attract more customers. Another suggestion would be to expand the dance floor.

Re: “Gus Balon's Restaurant

Gus Balon's has good service and nice size portions but the food could use a little spice. Maybe some black pepper at least. The pies are great when they're fresh but the serve them way past their prime.

Re: “Touchdowns

Lots of TV's but kinda bright for a sports bar. My wife and I both had a sandwich, with fries, and found the bread a little dry. The sandwich makings, themselves, were just fine and tasty.
