dont know what the big deal is. Food is average. No bar. long wait during prime time. Clinton ate hear? So what. He ate at MC'D's too.
From the ambience, to the friendly staff, to the great food there is nowhere else in Tucson that I enjoy eating more. It is a must hit every time my family is in town!
Awesome food, haven't had a mediocre meal ever since I started eating there. It's usually packed Sunday late-mornings, so get there early or be ready to wait for a table, it's a small-midsize restaurant.
I tried this place years ago and never went back as I thought the food was mediocre and the place too loud. It can get loud but its really a great restaurant in an area of town with few choices of restaurants. Pizza is just fine, thin crust better than regular. Food portions are hugh and all the food is tasty and reasonably priced. Great staff. Beats dealing with a Brooklyn Pizza kind of place.
I do not understand this places' popularity. Like were is the meat? The sandwiches are hugh only because the bread is hugh with very little filling. And when I eat there which has only been twice in eight years, I worry about chipping a tooth.
Awful food. Seriously bad. The waitress I had had some big towel on her head, smelled like cabbage, and couldn't understand a thing I said. Padd Thai is a signature dish and any halfway decent Thai place should be able to pull it off. It was gross. We complained and someone who claimed to be the owner came over. Started telling us that it was a recipe from her grandmother. Who cares lady, it's BAD!!
Char's - Sorry I strayed. Never again!!!
Great beers, tasty food, attentive servers, no skimpy portions! Very relaxed kick back atmosphere, pool tables too.
The best food I've had in Tucson. I went last Septemeber for my birthday and again for Cinco de Mayo and then my mom, aunt and I resolved to go at least once a month. I always get the Plato Poca Cosa and give the chef free reign on what I eat and have never been disappointed. The chocolate mole is to die for.
Try it for Hot or Cold Sandwiches, Hot Italian entrees, even salads - this food rocks!
Careful, if you order the Chicken Parm sandwich... You'll start craving this place and be back again & again!
My favorite secret menu item - A Tuna Sandwich on a TOASTED roll. Trust me...
Eating here was the worst dinning experience that I have ever had in any restaurant ever. I went with my grandparents and one of their elderly friends who had suggested the place and wanted to teat us. We started out by ordering a few appetizers and I bit into something rancid. We instructed the waitress to take away the remainder of that appetizer tray and to bring me a clean plate so I could finish sharing the other appetizers. She asked us if we wanted to order another appetizer and we said no, that would be fine, just bring a clean plate please. She did, and we went on. Then a guy, who I assume was the manager, actually brought the remainder of the appetizer plate back to our table and demanded to know who said that the food tasted rancid. I said I did. He said he didn’t understand and that he didn’t think that I knew what the word rancid even meant. That it meant rotten. I was blown away. I was trying to be discreet because the friend had highly recommended this restaurant and was picking up the tab, and now the manager is hovering over our table with the tray in hand, telling me that that it must be the balsamic vinegar that I’m tasting, and that I don’t know rotten, slimy spinach when I just spit it out of my mouth! To make things even worse, he goes on and on to tell me I should order something else, that If I think that tastes bad, than I’m not going to like the Greek salad that I ordered as a side dish to my entrée because that’s “just the way it tastes”. And you know what, I didn’t. It was completely bland and dry. But that’s besides the fact that no body enjoyed their meals after that absurd encounter. Being there with octogenarians, I didn’t react the way I wanted to. We tried to mumble through with some awkward jokes about him coming back out to ask me if I knew the definitions of more words, but it was still embarrassing. Can you imagine what would have been like if it was a dinner with clients or people from work? I will definitely never go there again with anyone, for any reason, and I suggest no one else does either.
We went on a Friday night, there was only one person working and he had four sets of customers waiting. So the service was lacking a bit. I didn't take away any stars for this for two reasons. One, he let us know he had to send the other person working with him home that night because he was too sick to be working. Not his fault. And two, the food was so darn good, we didn't even care that the service was a tad bit slow. We ordered Carne Asada tacos, Camaron (beer battered) tacos, the Mar y Tierra (Surf and Turf) tacos and the Ranchero Style Whole Pinto Beans. Everything was made to order so when we got them they were still sizzling from the grill. Wow, were we blown away! They use rib eye and fresh shrimp for the Mar y Tierra with a drizzle of mustard on top. I am obsessed with this one and wanted to go back the next day to see if I was dreaming about it or if was truly one of the best tasting tacos I ever tasted, it was! The batter on the shrimp was very light, crispy, tasty and complemented the shrimp perfectly. The salsas served were delicious too.
Everything was fresh and the quality of the meat and shrimp made a huge difference in the flavor and experience. I've eaten at alot of taquerias in this town, this place is now my Numero Uno!
The servers are very attentive and the food is consistent and very good. It is a wonderful locally owned spot where we grab a quick meal once a week.
The first time I went was lunch on the patio it was awesome,2nd time took freinds for dinner on patio,we had horrible service and managment gave us a $20 gift cert.Tried it again because I have always loved Scordatos family,There seemed to be plenty of help but service was really bad and slow ost dishes didn't come with ingredients as explained on menu.There were at least 3 managers on the floor but not really doin their job.Sorry to say we were so disappointed we won't be goin back.Manager should read his reveiws.I would rather have my dinner alittle late instead of cooks just throwing things together to get it out.Surprising and sad for Scordato's reputation.Bummed out!
Unique menu, fantastic patio, great bar with live jazz on Saturdays and Sundays, excellent beer selection, caring staff... unique to Tucson - a must try!

This restaurant has the best vegetarian Vietnamese selection in Tucson--very extensive. Prices range from more expensive than I would expect to very cheap. Luckily their excellent baguette sandwiches are only $4.50 and are delicious.
We love to eat out, but seeking a decent place to patronize is hard to find. Texas Roadhouse has become our favorite spot to eat. The food is great, including the blackened salmon. The sincere, friendly service is a major reasonwhy we keep coming back. It does get very busy, so when it is just the two of us we saddle up to the bar and order from Dave who takes care of our dining pleasure. Bottom line... good deal, great food, awesome service!
Excellent pulled pork but all else disappoints. Stopped going there when I had had enough of the owner's attitude - if I wanted the New York "tude", I would live in Manhattan.
I've been here twice and I wasn't impressed either time. It seems like a horrible value. I ended up paying $17 (tip and tax included) for some grilled veggies, lettuce, pita bread, and hummus. The water tastes really funky. Their sign says vegetarian paradise, but I didn't find that many vegetarian items on the menu. I'm not going back.
I am addicted to the messy fries, and smoked turkey sandwiches and the wings. And I agree with the dude above me the salmon is AMAZING.
