Never had a bad meal there. We go quite often. They're portions are generous and I usually take some home. Some of the food can be rather spicy but boy is it good!! Right now they have a coupon displayed on the KHIT 107.5 website under the calender, for free apple pies with purchase of two entrees. Take a friend and go.
the snobbier version of cup cafe. the hostesses seem to be trained to give visitors a good once over to assess whether or not we deserved a table. good gourmet mac&cheese and excellent signature cocktails but the service leaves much to be desired.
Great atmosphere to go with the great menu selections. There are dishes from just about every culture on this menu. The meals tend to be on the expensive side, but the service was great as well.
A complete hole-in-the-wall place with awesome burgers! Cody's has a simple menu but great food. The perfect place to hide out especially when suffering a hangover. It's quiet and dark and the servers are very nice and attentive.
Pat's is the best! A Tucson institution!
The BEST bisquits and sausage gravy anywhere in town!!! The service is 'muy rapido' as well... I usually use the two meals for the price of one coupon that is printed weekly in the Arizona Star...and my husband and I can eat a generous breakfast for under $10.00.... Mmmmmm... going there for breakfast tomorrow!!
FYI ... a reader pointed out that the Bread and Butter Cafe does not, in fact, serve butter. I have confirmed this is true. Take note: no butter!
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.
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).
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.
As stated in my comments on Golden Corral, I like the concept of buffets. The food at Hometown is mediocre for the most part, and there is less from which to select than Golden Corral. I am convinced their mashed potatoes are INSTANT POTATOES which is unappetizing. One can serve one's self beverages (unlike Golden Corral) without relying on a waitperson.
This café is really a treat! I know it’s not located right in the midst of things, but trust me – it’s worth the drive. Combine it with a trip to the Desert Museum or take visitors there for a great meal in a beautiful setting. After The Weekly gave it such a good review we decided to check it out and now we are regulars.
The café is open from 7AM to 2PM Tuesday through Sunday and they accept MC and Visa. Nothing on the menu is over $8.00 and the food is delicious and innovative. Breakfast offers the usual breakfast egg dishes, and also egg wraps and Huevous Rancheros and an especially inviting frittata. The coffee is always fresh, hot, and excellent. For lunch (and you can get breakfast and lunch both at any time) I recommend you try the sweet potato fries to go with anything else you order. The beer-battered are great, too. The sandwiches are all good, but my favorite is the Desert Delight: roasted turkey breast, roasted red peppers, monterrey jack cheese, and the most delicious black olive tappenade all served on a crisp and non-greasy foccacia. They’re serving Nimbus beer nowadays, and a nice wine as well.
But be sure to leave room for dessert! I understand that all of the pastries and desserts are baked on the premises, and they are excellent. Just choose what looks good to you – they are all good and I have never had one that failed to please in a big way. Another tip: try the cranberry-nut muffins….they are to die for, especially when they are hot out of the oven in the morning.
The staff is unfailingly friendly, accommodating, and efficient. They greet regulars by name and remember how you like your coffee.
Coyote Pause is located in a charming little center called Cat Mountain Station, which has several unusual shops and art galleries. When you’ve had your meal, be sure to browse through the complex; it is highly entertaining!
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.
Upon arrival we were told that due to a review in the Daily Star they booked up, our only option was to eat in the bar area. The entire time we were there, eating from a 10 inch wide shelf that a pigeon would scoffed at, there 6 out 14 tables vacant. While there another couple turned up their nose at the bar and was seated. When questioned the hostess said "oh I saw you had already ordered". In other words you were already hooked. The bar was cramped an populated with loud motormouths, altogether an unpleasant dining experience, ESPECIALLY in view of the prices.
