I think the food at Caruso's is great! I have never been disappointed. The house salad dressing they have is so delicious I am always asking for more bread to dip in it. I am very happy that there is a place in Tucson that has history, great food and good service!
Great vibe, and a must for a light meal or drinks after attending an event downtown. Steak (now pork) frites was well-cooked and appropriately seasoned; mac & cheese was rich without being overwhelming. Featured cocktails change from time to time, and the adventurous won't be disappointed. Can feel a little understaffed at busy times, but the service remains cheerful and efficient.
Beer selection is excellent, with a few local-ish brews and a ton of ones from places you may never have heard of. Pizza is serviceable, with a crispy crust and decent toppings. Service can be slow, even during the summer months--plan to linger.
Yuck, Digusting! Homemade? Uh.... try costco bought. Rude owners and rude servers! don't waste your money just go somewhere else.
Best shrimp tacos ever! And the family is very kind, always friendly. Service is always excellent.
I arrived at 6:15 p.m on a Wednesday. I gave one star because there was no zero rating. Why?
#1. The atmosphere was dingy, dirty and broken down. The carpet had more food stains than the steam table at it's worst. There were holes in the carpet. I noticed wet cleaning rags left on the floor in various corners of the serving stations.
#2. The food, if you can call it that was unlabeled. You were not always sure what you were selecting. The food was tepid to cool at best. No one was at the carving station. The ham looked like it had been around for a day too long to be eaten. The food basically tasted like it had remained in the same steam-table pan since the lunch hour, rather than replacing the old pan with a fresh pan of hot food.
#3. The soft serve ice cream machine was broken. Yet there was soft serve drippings on the nozzles and on the catch tray. The dessert station was woeful. One or two crumbled pieces of cake on a cake plate. Three or four cookies here or there on different trays. A few dishes of each selection on trays. It looked like the day's before leftovers.
#4. The help were basically helpful and courteous. No complaints about them.
All-in-all, if you're looking for a fair-priced enjoyable dinner buffet, avoid this one!
I go here all the time, the half sushi roll everyday can't be beat. My family is also a fan of the lunch box menu. The service staff seems to change a lot, but I can't say I've ever had bad service.
I truly enjoyed the ‘Bubby’s Chicago Style’ dining experience because the food is simply yummy! My youngest boy and his friends frequent the place, and each said I should try the Chicago dog… On my first visit, I tried their Chicago dog and was impressed. Not because I’ve been to the East coast and know everything, but because it pleased my taste buds, and so much that I ordered a second. I’ve returned to enjoy other menu items and found the charbroiled taste that comes with their burgers or chicken salad to be perfect!
The staff appears to be neighborhood youth with a hint of shyness but eager and responsive. Bubby’s Chicago Style provides the three basic ingredients for success: Great food, great service and respect for their customers.
Great place for happy hour.

A bit on the pricey side with above average food. The service was outstanding and a nice clean atmosphere. The Veal dish that I had was Good (but a tiny bit salty) and the Sauce on the Spaggetti tasted like it was from a can.
This place is a nice date place with a nice romantic setting.
Maria Bonita was a wonderful place for a family, also with very delicious food. My family and I loved it. We were truly sad when we saw it closed. I seriously hope to see a Maria Bonita opened once more, but from my understanding why this family restaurant closed was in fact for the building, not completely sure but the owner had said that the building was in bad bad condition. Anyways hope to see it open once again, and if does my family and i will in fact be there.
I couldn't have enjoyed my experience more. The IPA was delicious, as were the burger and onion rings. Nice adult atmosphere and the service was good. I look forward to more visits in the future.
Oh.. and was not impressed with the names of many of the items in a vegetarian restaurant being called after meat dishes.
OK. food was reasonably tasty. I had Homemade Adzuki Burger Savory grilled patty of adzuki beans, zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, corn, organic oats and walnuts with lettuce, tomato and vegan mayo on an organic whole wheat bun. Tasted OK but was somewhat oily and I thought expensive at $7.50 for what I had. The wife had Rice and Bean Burrito, with the gluten free toast instead of the whole-wheat flour tortilla. stuffed with organic brown rice & black beans, vegan sour cream, and an organic tossed salad with your choice of one of our five house dressings. for $7.95 The substituted GF toast was 2 quite small triangles which certainly did not compensate in size for a tortilla. When we asked for more toast we were informed that it would be 0.90 more.. We asked to speak to the manager who informed us that they made it them self and was very expensive! We were not impressed with his attitude or the price for a small slice of toast. All in all was tasty enough but expensive for vegetarian food.
A real restaurant. Well run, professional, good food, actually decorated. A reliable place to put on the list.
We've been here five times now, and keep coming back. The atmosphere is Japanese Modern chic, with lots of black and red. The service is excellent and the sushi is too! It's fast becoming our sole sushi restaurant.
We stopped in thinking it was an Italian deli only and were pleasantly surprised by their dinner menu. They serve handmade vegetarian ravioli-several types, including a slightly sweet squash filled pasta that contrasted nicely with the buttery, garlicky sauce. My husband had the baked ziti with plenty of handmade sausage.
The cannoli made a fine ending to the meal. We noticed the variety of cookies in the pastry case but it was the unfilled cannoli shells that caught our eye. Chocolate dipped or plain? We asked our server for both and he cheerfully brought us cannoli that were perfect- they aren't filled until the customer orders them, keeping the shell from becoming soggy.
Bread baked fresh on the premises, overhearing some funny banter between staff, great food left us wondering, why hadn't we stopped in before?
We're grateful for decent restaurants on the eastside.
Very dissapointed in the reviews La Fuente has. I have been going there for 30 + years and every time I have the best expierience! The food is superb, the menu is not your ordinary Sonoran mexcian dish. They have recipes that are from all of the different regions in Mexico. I enjoy the pastel Azteca, which is like no other. The Waiters are all so friendly and give the best service, not like some of the franchise restaurants. It is definitely worth the money, not to mention the entertainment of Live Mariachi. Unfortunately there will always be some CHEAP people who want something for nothing. Shame on you.
Absolutely love this place. The atmosphere is wonderful, feels like Mexico! The service was also great. The staff is very friendly and attentive, we were never out of chips or drinks. Now the food, was extremely tastey! They have a wide menu with different options unlike any other mexican restaurant i have been to in Arizona. My family and I look foward to this Mariachi Idol competetion I just read about! Highly recommend this place.
