Re: “Gio Taco

The Metzger is excellent. It was my favorite of the 3 specialty tacos. Served with au jus? Creative. Although it was plain as day, I had to ask what it was because it was a surprise to see it accompany a taco. Don't dip it, just dump it on top.

Time your visit for 645pm on a Sunday. Sit on the patio and you'll get an eyeful when Hi Fi across the street raises those massive sunscreens. It's a PG13 glass fishbowl. What a party! Video wall, DJ on stage and Go Go Girls dancing in silhouette on the bar.

Say what you want to about the spotty "service" but I see the General Manager humping it the whole time. That's good enough for me.

As for people constantly wanting to F I L L themselves: those who live in fat asses should not throw stones. Ya Taco Bell pig out monkeys. Stay out of our way if it's possible to move your fat ass aside far enough for others to pass.

Re: “Polish Cottage

I enjoyed the authentic Polish food. The soup was just right with all the flavors of eastern Europe. The pierogies were yum and the meats imported and full of flavor. I would recommend this place.

Re: “Gee's Garden

This is not Japanese like the headline says. This is pure Chinese food and very good at that. Great dim sum mostly decent service. and atmosphere ain't bad either.

Re: “Playground Bar and Lounge

Pretty cool place, just started going back. Not so much a party place as it is just a bar atmosphere but its fun and a nice group of people.

Re: “Vail Steak House Cafe and Diner

Great Americana food. Awesome breakfasts, burgers and dinners. Dont let the stakehouse name fool you, this is more of a diner. Great food at a reasonable price. No frills, good service. Owners George and Dina always greet you with a smile.

Re: “New York Pizza Department

There's about 3-4 places in town where you can get a real NY slice, this is one of them. Really enjoyed it. Only gave 'em 4 stars because I haven't tried anything else, but I will!

Re: “Lerua's

Leruas does stand out because of the best tamales anywhere. The enchiladas are great and the prices are very good. Numerous combination plates equal great deals.

Re: “Poco and Mom's

This place is awesome, for all your mexican food needs. The drive through option is heads above your typical drive through mexican. The dinner plates are very tasty as well, although to onion heavy.

Where this place really shines though, are the breakfast plates. You have not lived until you have had the red chili pork tamales with fried eggs on top!

Re: “Pinnacle Peak

Love their steak and beans, and salads...never have enough room for dessert. Servers have been friendly. We enjoy walking around the trail dust town, and shop a bit...don't visit much anymore since moving to a rural area SE of Tucson...have to drive to Sonoita for a decent steak now :D

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

No new reviews so i thought I would post one.

Friday has perennial 80's and G. Cover charge and packed. Saturday night ; no cover smaller crowd and sometimes very good bands (Giant Blue, etc). Definitely the night to go. Mixed crowd with many older people looking for hookups (well it's true). Drinks are very reasonable for Foothills, food good. Bartenders are nice and fast

Re: “Saigon Pho

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.

Re: “Lotus Garden Restaurant

I moved here from San Francisco and have had a hard time finding really good Chinese food. BirdsEye frozen vegetables tossed with plain chunks of tofu in a salty brown sauce doesn't do it. I can't believe it took me this long to try Lotus Garden, but it's the real thing--snow peas and carrots were lightly cooked so they were bright and had a bit of snap, the sauce relied on the flavors of its ingredients and not salt for its punch, the tofu was sliced thin and lightly fried for texture and flavor, and the shrimp were huge. My new go-to Chinese place.

Re: “La Fresita

Very good food and an excellent selection! I'm glad I live close by. P.S. I spoke Spanish and was answered in English!

Re: “Noble Hops Gastropub

Agree that it is a great addition to the Oro Valley restaurant scene. My son-in-law visited from Cambridge MA over the holidays and felt it was a real find. He brews beer at a place called John Harvard's ( yeah it is near the University by the same name) . Lot of great beers and an incredible variety of west-of -the-Mississippi local brews. Food is good brew pub snack food . Not sure what a gastro-pub is, but sense the taste/variety fell a bit short. But this is a place about the 100 + beers, not the food.

Re: “Mother Hubbard's Cafe

The strip mall is dumpy, and the interior of Mother Hubbard's doesn't win for style. What they do have is great service, great food, and fair prices. My wife and I have been there for breakfast and lunch. It's pretty much a scratch prep for everything. Their locally sourced and created ingredients are top notch. Food with character!

Re: “Bushi

Very good sushi. Didn't try anything else, but will definitely go back.

Re: “Boca

Maria's Taco Salsas are pure magic they are so fresh and delicious, with creative ingredients. The place is small, yet a diamond with the best tacos in Tucson for this experienced gourmand of Mexican culinary delights.
