Re: “Boca

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!

Re: “Risky Business

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.

Re: “Guiseppe's

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!

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: “Texas Roadhouse

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!

Re: “R&R Bar-B-Que Company

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.

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

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.

Re: “BrushFire BBQ Co.

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.

Re: “The Fat Greek

Horrible food and rude waitresses who belittle customers. This is why the place is always empty

Re: “Amereno's Little Italy

Bad Italian

Ragu is better! All the people adding four and five star must be related to the Asian family that owns this place cause it was musty and smelly inside, the food was cold in the center and the staff was clueless.

Don't waste your time coming here it is NOT worth it!

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Slow service, took a half hour to get our food. Coupons are worthless, you spend way more money using their coupons than if you did not. This restaurant forgot almost half of our order. We had to remind them that some of our food was missing.............and when it finally arrived we were done eating. Worst restaurant ever!

Re: “Delectables Restaurant and Catering

I was recently in town for a week of work and ate at Delectables many times. It was perfect. The food was fresh, the wine was exceptional, the service was knowledgeable and friendly. I took friends there for Easter Brunch and it was impeccable. I can't wait to go there again!

Re: “Sushi Garden

I am extremely dissapointed with the tucson weekly voting this the best sushi in tucson. Fake Ahi tuna?? thats right its just whitefish died red. I cant stand cheep sushi no matter how "cool" the inside looks. Do yourself a favor and eat pretty much anywhere else but there.

Re: “Maynards Market and Kitchen

Their pizzas are fabulous, and you can also make a whole meal of their fun side dishes. The space is noisy and long, like a box car, which is fitting since while you eat the trains roll by (Maynards is at the railway station). Great patio scene as well.

Re: “San Carlos Mexican Grill

Awesome Tacos. Homemade shells that were light and crisp. Lots of refills of chips and salsa. Chili Rellenos not too much batter and fresh tasting.

Re: “Maynards Market and Kitchen

I am obsessed with the fresh blueberry muffins they sell in the market. With tons of sugar on top they are definitely the best in Tucson and definitely not from Costco. The soups are phenomenal, like the clam chowder I cant stop thinking about when I'm at work. I only wish they would sell it everyday but it changes all the time. Go and get some fresh sourdough too it amazing. Thumbs up to maynards for many delicious lunches!!
