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.

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: “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: “Bobo's Restaurant

Unfriendly staff.

Re: “HomeTown Buffet

As stated in my comments on Golden Corral, I like the concept of buffets. The food at Hometown is mediocre for the most part, and there is less from which to select than Golden Corral. I am convinced their mashed potatoes are INSTANT POTATOES which is unappetizing. One can serve one's self beverages (unlike Golden Corral) without relying on a waitperson.

Re: “Blue Willow

Mediocre at best. I've tried it several times over many years, never a good meal. Always expensive and lousy service.

Re: “The Good Egg

Had Breakfast at their Speedway/Kolb location, Nice clean and new place with great staff but High prices coupled with just OK bland food. The place has not changed since my last visit about 3 years ago. Won't be going back for awhile.

Re: “Firebirds Wood Fired Grill

I agree with the previous review. Dinner prime rib has been very dissapointing, to the point of almost inedible one time. The wait staff for the most part is very upbeat and courteous, however, the last time we were there for dinner (last fall), my father (70's), asked for prime rib, medium well. It came out medium rare, and the server argued that the piece was medium well, and to deal with it. Needless to say, that ruined our entire evening. My prime rib was so full of grissle that I ate between the lines (literally), and not once did anyone come check on us, until it was check time. We did try to explain (twice, once to waitstaff, and once on the way out to the manager, who was non-existant throughout the entire night), why we left entire meals, but nobody seemed concerned, just explained that they were busy that night....(OK??). IMHO it's gone way downhill, and we won't be back. Too many other places that serve a good steak in town to bother with figuring out if that night's dinner will be acceptable or not or if the wait staff will be courteous or not. (FYI: my father said it would need to be the last place in Tucson before he ever goes back). Now the other items on the menu other than red meat seem to look very good and the appetizers are pretty good. If anyone has a good experience with their steaks/prime rib, and it seems to be coming back to what it used to be, I'd like to hear them, only then will I consider it to be of the same quality as other restaurants in the area...C'mon we're talking La Encantada here....

Re: “Golden Corral

Excellent place to meet really obese people. But the food? Not so good.

Re: “Chicago Bar

I don't mean to be rude but we saw Shell Shock and found them to be rather boring. We left after the first set. It was a long drive for us to be let down. By the way, we love classic rock when it's done well. Sorry.

Re: “Bob Dobbs

"Proud to serve" and "RC cola" should never be used in the same sentence, unless you're into sarcasm. Overpriced, and very average.

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: “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: “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: “Little Anthony's Diner

This place sucks. Horrible service, poor food. They give hamburgers cutesy 50's names and charge 8 bucks for a basic fast food ho-hum burger that's nothing special. Our waitress forgot about us for 40 minutes after we ordered and brought us cold food, I complained to the manager the next day and never heard back. Avoid this place

Re: “Mother Hubbard's Cafe

Not only is the strip mall dumpy, its also a hangout for those who have trouble coping with the law of gravity, and its surrounded by one of the worst slumlord neighborhoods in the city. TPD should just open a satellite office here as they are in they parking lot most of the time anyway. Last time I ate there the coffee was truly awful, more like colored water. Eggs sunny side up were served up almost raw and the hash browns barely touched the stove. Serving up undercooked food can be a health hazard. Yes it might be cheap, but its also really bad. There might be a chef on the business card, but there certainly is not one in the kitchen. People who like the food served up there must be desperate, because frankly, in this neighborhood there is no other place you can go to.
