dont know what the big deal is. Food is average. No bar. long wait during prime time. Clinton ate hear? So what. He ate at MC'D's too.
From the ambience, to the friendly staff, to the great food there is nowhere else in Tucson that I enjoy eating more. It is a must hit every time my family is in town!
The best food I've had in Tucson. I went last Septemeber for my birthday and again for Cinco de Mayo and then my mom, aunt and I resolved to go at least once a month. I always get the Plato Poca Cosa and give the chef free reign on what I eat and have never been disappointed. The chocolate mole is to die for.
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!
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.
I've always had fantastic food here, and find the service timely, friendly, in fact, extraordinary. And the prices are not at all expensive. The people who run this place are the best! The food is glorious. Noisy . . . ok, but not beyond a lot of restaurants. It's one of Tucson truly unique treasures. We take our local friends and our out-of-town guests here with pleasure.
Lupita's is horrible, the food came out about 25 mins after we ordered. Also the drinks, 7-up, water, and 2 mix drinks took 15 mins to come out, and they only had 4 tables of customers, They were not busy. They want to charge $1 for a little ramikin of limes. All the dishes are way over [riced. Two fish tacos: $9.95. 1 small bowl of menudo $5.95 and they charge for the limes as i said earlier. I have to say that it's been one of my worst dining experiences. want good mexican fare. try guadlajara grill, cafe poca cosa or el molinitos.
Great food. Friendly service. Deserves 6 stars.
Microwave burritos at $$$ prices.
Very good food and an excellent selection! I'm glad I live close by. P.S. I spoke Spanish and was answered in English!
I just do not get this places' popularity. THe owner has an attitude having taken over from his parents, the service is only fair and the portions very small. Its only because of the fact that there are so few restaurants on this end of town that this place stays busy.
I've been eating at Mi Nidito's for 22 years, and I've never been disappointed. It is simply delicious, authentic Tucson style Mexican food. It's always been worth the wait, and I've always had great, friendly service. The owners and everyone working there always welcomed our large family, and my kids always enjoyed looking at the many colorful decorations. I love the tacos, both the ground beef patties and shredded beef. The chili in the chili relleno is always crisp and flowing with hot, white melted cheese that is to die for. The beans are always the perfect consistency. This is absolutely my favorite restaurant.
The carnitas are so good, melts in your mouth. The price is average for this type of place. You will not be disappointed. The previous rating of 1star is totally off base. They do not know what good food taste like
I co-sign this joint for sure
They used CANNED ingredients to make your salsa. Tastes like Pace. Rest of the menu fare's the same. Definitely a gringo Mexican joint. Better choices elsewhere.
Terrible food and service at high prices.
Actually the one on Court is the original. I remember it when I was growing up in Tucson. My "friend" and "associate" Steve Flin was the nephew of the owner Monica Flin. Steve passed away in the 70's and per his request we had a party behind El Charro with alot of tequila. Oh well....just remembering....anyway, I always felt the restaurant had good food. But I've been living away from AZ for awhile now. I go once or twice a year to visit friends and family, but my favorite place is another place behind the police station on Stone.
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.
i started going to the mosaic when it was @ the SW cor. of silverbell and speedway. the wash behind the now P.O. and the fast food asian rest. is called the Mosaic Wash. Then for years we went to the NE cor. of silverbell and grant, and finally up on the hill behind mcd's. the service is worst, the prices went up, the portions went down, and when i got the abosolute wrong order, a chicken chimie intead of a veggie burro, and then took 20 minutes to change it. i complained. i called the owners son, who was managing, outside to complain in private. Next time it will be in the restaurant at full volume. He looked at me and said, "better luck next time."
I used to go all the time as it was the only decent restaurant close to my house. After a bad experience and even worse experience correcting the problem, I have not been back in three years.
