My husband and I have been watching Kitchen Nightmares recently and I felt it was our responsibility to let the public know about this place.
He worked there for a few weeks a couple years ago. He quit because he said the place was filthy. He previously worked at Olive Garden for 3 years which has is immaculate I might add. He ended going back to Olive Garden.
When they were showing him around they went inside the walkin in cooler. On the floor was a bin...like a Sterilite bin. Inside this bin was their main sauce that they use. It was not covered at all, just sitting on the floor open to let stuff fly in it. They told him to step over so they could show him stuff. He lost balance while doing so (those things are pretty large) and his foot went in the sauce. He immediately apologized and they were like "Don't worry about it" and continued to use it. His nasty dirty shoe WENT IN THE SAUCE and they STILL USED IT!!!! EW. He also said the kitchen was disgusting. He actually took it upon himself and tried to clean it.
He and the other line cooks would smoke in the walk in cooler. The managers/owners did know about this because he said one time they walked in when they were smoking. The guy was like "Hurry up" He also said they would sometimes join.
Before I even met my husband and knew about this place, many of my friends had gotten food poisoning from this place as well.
I beg of you, please please do not go to this restaurant. I've never eaten there myself and now I never will.
This is NOT a brewpub but a motel restaurant/bar. Old folks from Green Valley. Worse now with the Snow Vultures back.
Not sure what Mo is trying to pass off as veal but it looked and tasted like deli turkey. It should be illegal to fradulently advertise and serve something that isnt.
Look forward to this place closing.
Will never patronize this restaurant ever again!. They wouldn't accept a $100 gift certificate. We received it as a gift from some grateful friends, but management wouldn't honor it. WHY NOT? It's equivalent to us having paid for our meal in advance. Definitely not a sound business approach for endearing themselves to their customers.
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
Terrible food and the owner is incredibly rude. I've seen him harass cyclists and customers. Perhaps if he spent as much time working on his business as he does bothering customers it'd be worth eating here. As it stands, better to run the other way.
I could cry. Yes its that bad, the service, is deplorable, small portions, of not very good food, horrible chairs,
and the only thing that i can say was good, was the nice waiter, the bus boy, ect. I have never seen anything like this. the only good thing was the refried beans. Go to Mi Nidito (520) 622-5081 - 1813 S 4th Ave, Tucson, AZ , that is where I am going to from now on. Trust me this place is a disaster , and even with a reservation you are greeted with the most unfriendly hostess.
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.
Time Market has entered into a serious period of decline. This Tucson Weekly review has become dated. Time no longer has a deli. They primarily serve pizza slices, beer, and wine. Although they close at 10pm, do not expect to be served if you arrive after 9pm (youll be told nothing is available except the last few leftover cheese slices). They turn off their coffee machine at 7pm because they want to start breaking down three hours before closing. Don't turn to management for any help, even the owner will attempt to insult you with smug remarks when given reasonable feedback.
Mosaic is not the same restaurant I remember. Went there for New Year Eve lunch 12/31/14. Asked for a window seat,(there were plenty) and got seated in a plastic bush in the center of the room. Across the way,a tablecloth was draped over a table that had the top glass over its contents broken,that was left there next a to the window....where some of us would have liked to sit.The waitress warned us about the new waiter that would be taking our order,and mentioned that she would make sure he got it right.Which he did,but then we never were checked on after that,until he brought the check.Our table had only forks on a napkin,as did most of the tables with diners and without. As I pondered whether it was a new Mexican tradition to eat with only forks,I noticed that 4 recently seated diners had knives and forks. Okay....dishwasher problem,not enough utensils,who knows....But I will not be returning to Mosaic any time soon.Shoddy shoddy shoddy without the dialed down drink or menu prices.
We ordered the cheese crisp. We forgot to order chiles on it. When she brought it back it had green peppers on it. I said these are green peppers, and she told the cook and he said no, those are green chiles. Ok. Bottom line is I was born in Tucson and raised on sonoran style Mexican food. I KNOW the difference between the two. Don't insult me by telling me different. And, and, the beans I ordered maybe were four tablespoons full. If the young man who came to the table to sooth us is the owner, oh, my, god. Good luck in the future little boy, were gone and won't be back. Barry A Malone
Used to like it but it has gone down hill over the last few years. Poor quality pizza and horrible service. I have had multiple deliveries where the pizza arrives 30 or 40 minutes later than they say it will and when it gets there it is burnt on the bottom and cold. It takes a lot of effort to screw up that bad. Not to mention EVERY time I have added a six pack to my order the driver "forgets it in the cooler" and has to go back to his car for it. Hmmmmm. Im guessing they hope you forget so they get free beer.
The crust use to be excellent. Just a few weeks ago, had it delivered to my house....so disappointed! The crust tasted like it had been frozen for a long time. Low Quality Pizza.
There is something 'off 'about the food here. I think the ingredients are not of high quality and it sure shows. It's always packed because there isn't any competition in that particular area.
I had got married on the 29th of March and had a little less than 200 people or at least 200 people. we were supposed to get food at 5:00pm for all of our guest Marys lucky dollar didn't come until 7:00pm. My guest where upset hungry and some even left because they couldn't wait any longer to eat due to them being elderly and needing to take medicine. Mary's lucky dollar decided to give my Mother in Law their pots and pans and said to give it to Gabby at Balloon Land that they didn't have enough room and didn't want to wait to finish serving everyone till the food was completely gone. They had called my phone asking for their pots and pans I informed them my mother in law has them. she then stated can you call her and have her drop them off at the balloon land. I did do this and informed my mother in law they needed them that night for a job the following day as soon as they called me. I tried talking to them about them being two hrs late and they just pretended they didn’t know what I said and said we just need our stuff you talk to gabby then hung up. The lady didn't call back nor gave me her name when I asked so I assumed it was taken care of. Two weeks later she calls back again stating we haven't given them their stuff back. So I responded and said Why was the stuff given to my mother in law in the first place it’s not our responsibility to have your stuff that is your guys job to have all of your stuff and be responsible for it at all times. And another thing I would like to know who I speak to about the dinner service you guys where 2 hrs. late and I had guest who had left because of this. She immediately said YOUR A LIAR!!! WE WHERE A COUPLE OF MINS LATE AND THATS IT. You owe us money if anything because we made food for 275 people. I said excuse me???? Did you just call me a liar??? this is how you treat your customers ??? First of all I paid a good amount of money for Gabby to pay you to feed for 200 people and that was at an all you can eat expense as well so that’s not my problem you made more then you were supposed to. What is your name? she said why do you need to know my name you just call gabby and take it up with her!! I said because I need to know who I am speaking to! So may I have your name please? she said Rosa I said ok Rosa and what is your last name? she said why do you need to know this information I said so I can report you for the bad service you did you were 2 hrs. late then you give my mother in law stuff that wasn’t hers to make it her responsibility and now you are calling me a liar and saying I owe you money when i paid 5500 for all of this to be perfect and it wasn’t!!!! well Roberto said it was good service and yes and who is Roberto was he my husband ?? was he the one who paid for all of this to happen???? No it was me and my husband and I’m telling you it was not a good service because you were 2 hrs. late may I speak to your manager. She then just stuttered um um um I said Rosa are you the manager or owner? she said no I said ok I need to speak to someone above your head please put your manager on the phone but she can’t speak to you because she doesn’t know. She doesn’t know what? She doesn’t know English so you need to take it up with gabby if you have a problem. I said oh I will and may I have your last name please or do I need to record this call? And she hung up. How rude of this place to one call me a liar when i have 200 witness stating when the food came and when it should have been then and two giving other people their stuff that she should be responsible for so now im getting harassed. This was suppose to go perfect considering it was my wedding day and it didn't but i was willing to talk bout it until i was called a LIAR and now im going to make sure this get's handled properly i don't care what it takes! NO ONE SHOULD GET TREATED THIS WAY AND I SURE WOULDN'T WANT IT TO BE THE NEXT COUPLES WEDDING TO GET SCREWED OVER AS WELL!
This place is terrible. overpriced food and obnoxious bands. it was empty when i went there and the staff didnt seem to care. good luck surviving the summer
Worst food EVER!! Cole slaw was smothered in mayo only! French fries were no longer than an inch and a half----what? The end of the bag? Mashed potatoes stale and cold.
Fried fish was covered in a leathery weirdness that is indescribable. Only thing good was the beer and Cosmo but then again, it took forever to get refills. Place should have been packed given the number of TVs and that it was Final Four weekend but apparently previous guests had tasted the truly awful food and decided never to come back. Lord knows, won't be either!!!
Went to the restaurant on Thorneydale today, worst waitress I ever had at a restaurant. Turned out she was the manager. I ask the other waitress, who she ask to finish with us why she was so nasty, she said she works a lot. No excuse for me, I went there to have a nice lunch, not so nice!
This place is disgusting. I see roaches came out from the kitchen. Where's the inspector?..
I should have turned around and walked out when I saw all the fedora hats and laptops on the tables. I ordered a GC tamal to go, passable at best, would probably beat out anything you'd get in North Dakota though. Another "cool people' joint.
