Re: “Thunder Canyon Brewery (La Cholla)

YUM. Great appetizers offered for half off during their happy hour. Something for every member of the family.

Re: “Shogun Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar

Our favorite place if we're just craving Japanese and don't feel like spending a fortune. Half off select sushi rolls every day and great lunch box menu.

Re: “Macayo's

The food here is not as good as La Parrilla Suiza, but is good and has a yummy dessert menu. The service is 9/10 times very good.

Re: “Magpies Gourmet Pizza

The pizzas here are absolutely delightful and satisfying. I'd say that this is the only pizza place in Tucson that rivals 1702.

Re: “Verona Italian Restaurant

Always a great place to eat if you are willing to spend the cash (menu is expensive but made fresh). Great wine list and great (but small) selection of dishes. The appetizers are really good too. Would not recommend the veal because of recent investigations that indicate the use of ham instead of veal.

Re: “1702

Great pizza and great beer, however, the service is sometimes scant, understaffed, and takes a long time to get food and refills.

Re: “Govinda's Natural Foods Buffet and Boutique

The food is awesome, tasty, and big variety. Salad bar is so fresh and lots of organic items to choose from. All of that for around $10. Atmosphere is A+ too.

Re: “The Garland Bistro

Previously I failed to mention the wonderful service. Both friendly and professional, the service staff struck that perfect balance between the feeling of being stalked on one hand to the sensation of being neglected and abandoned on the other. Nicely done!

Re: “Bangkok Café

Eaten here once; will again. Rundown:

*Decent atmosphere
*Friendly staff
*Great curry

*Specialty drinks overpriced
*Slightly overpriced overall, but justifiable

Re: “The B Line

Eaten here twice. Rundown:

*Nicely rounded beer selection
*Relaxed yet refined atmosphere
*Med-Lg sized portions
*Balanced flavors in all dishes had (fish burrito, salmon salad w/pasta)

*Need to stay open later (suggestion: hire a manager to keep it open later during school to bring in some financial aid :) )
*Deserts, though visually appealing were ho-hum

Re: “Tatsu Sushi

Such a fun little restaurant! You would never expect how nice it is from the outside. Service was friendly and probably the best sushi I've had in Tucson so far.

Re: “Birría Guadalajara

Tasty and affordable, but never ask them to make something that is not strictly on the menu, like put potatoes into a breakfast burrito. They give you nasty looks and cook it the way they want to, i.e. potatoes were served on the side.

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: “Gandhi

I concur on the lunch buffet - truly outstanding! The whole menu is budget priced without compromise in quality. The staff are a bit surly but,nevertheless, attentive. You must check it out if you like Indian fare.

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: “Buffalo Wild Wings

Yum they have a nice variety of sauces and you can watch any game that's on! Wings are a little small but still good and they have great food deals plus a huge list of beers. Just wish there was a more central location!

Re: “Zemam's

Outstanding. Be sure to try the Ethiopian tea - cold or hot - depending on the season. Great vegetarian and meat options. Perfect for a group of friends or family. Order different dishes and eat communally.

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: “Buffalo Wild Wings

60 cent legs on Wednesdays? Are you kidding me? Take the whole family and eat out for five bucks. Outside patio? 250 square feet of tv? Granted it's a chain, but Wild Wings was made for football.
