I love this place; first come, first served seating and all homemade breads, cinnamon roles and pies, oh my!! I can usually find a seat late morning between sales calls for a real home cooked breakfast and quick friendly service. The joint is also clean as a whistle and not pricey. What more could you want?
If you have not seen AZ Kenny Tsak & 56 Deluxe you have missed out. This national touring band is sizzling roadhouse blues. They were at the Bisbee Blues Festival in 2008 and they tore the house down. I'll be there Sat at Boondocks.
The Skybox is a great place to go. We think the food is great and so is the service. My favorite band is the Boogie Oogies because they play great dance music and are great entertainers.
The food is excellent, and very authentic even down to the Gonnella Brand bread used on the beef sandwiches. The decor is bright and the place is clean, ( which is a plus compared with many of its Chicagoland rivals). I too hope they are able to overcome the bad location that they chose.
Hey Caliman what band in Tucson do YOU think is good? Oh by the way have you yet to find a bar or restaurant in Tucson that you actually like because you give thumbs down to everyplace you review.
Just another lame watering hole really. By the way. Have bars stopped hiring good entertainment around here or is it that all the better bands travel up to Phoenix to play?
Friday nights for 80's and Gentlemen! Its the place to be... have met so many great people there. Highly recomend!!
Hmm? Expected much better. Rather bland tasting food. And our deserts? Again. Expected better but was disappointed when they were brought out, cake, ice cold and hard. Shouldn't like that be thawed before serving? On a positive note, I will say that a lot of people seemed to be ordering the Mexican dishes. Maybe they do that better? Our crepes and meatloaf didn't cute it though. In general, Tucson isn't the happening spot for good food.
What a great chance to catch Brian, is there a cover on Mondays?
I really don't understand the draw here. I really thought it was going to be something when we got there 10 minutes before they opened and there were 20 people waiting outside. Unremarkable food, I think it's just a place for grey haird ponytail guys and their women in tiedyed skirts.
Maynards food was really fantastic - creative and fresh. We adored the cheese selection. The compliments stop there. Period. The waitress was a ditz. Thought princess edward island - the source of the mussels- was in the pacific. We only got attended to about once every 20 mins and only when asked. Saturday night dinner was busy but not overwhelming so we remained patient when it took 10 mins to get our first drinks. It just went downhill from there. Dinner came 1 hour and 30 mins after ordering. Out of sequence and cold. When we complained, the manager was insulting, condescending, and outright obnoxious. Proceeded to tell me 2 hours is a normal wait time for dinner. I reminded him good restaurant experiences are a combination of good food and great service. They failed miserably on the latter and the 22 year old manager proceeded to be indignant. When I commented that this actually was my 40th birthday celebration (no kidding), and the service plus his indignation sent the whole evening south, he said "we take pride in our food" .....in the end, the bill was only reduced by a fraction, furious....and we didn't even get a cappuccino we ordered at the end. These guys BLOW.. Worst dinner experience ever. NEVER GO HERE... EVER.......Till they figure out that the customers happiness pays there indignant pompous paychecks, the place needs to go under..
Toni's used to be decent, but something happened. They had a couple of good servers, but now they're gone. The last couple of times I was there, my server was too busy running outside to smoke to refill my coffee. I never did get a refill. And the food simply isn't consistent. I guess the "real" cook has to have a day off sometime. All in all, I used to really like this place, but I won't be going back anymore. Sorry, Toni. You're a nice lady, but your help needs help.
where else do you find live music - GOOD live music - se7en nights a week in TUS? A great neighborhood bar with friendly people. Makes me wish I didn't have a morning job.
Been going there for over 25 years! Our all time favorite. (Even though we don't live nearby any more, we still trek there at least once/week!!)
Mexican grill - delicious
Pies good, but banana bread better (pumpkin bread during thanksgiving - wish year round)
good, hot coffee
(If you are into liver & onions, also very good -- nice and tender)
A friend told me about this and said they have bands so I checked it out over the weekend. In a work the place is dull. Not horrible or anything but it's pretty dull. I guess I would go back but I am in no hurry to do so.
Great dinner breakfast, fast service, great bacon and the pancakes are big. No, I mean really rather large.
We live out here in Vail and have seen this place go from good to horrible real fast. Is there a new owner? The manager is about as inviting and classy as a used sanitary napkin on a table! I guess you get what you pay for, obviously a non- experienced manager is cheap and easy help! We won't come back as well as all of our neighborhood friends. We have had it with this place! Owner must be a retard!
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.
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!
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.
