Re: “Nimbus Bistro and Brewery

I'm the non beer drinker in our group and if a brew pub can keep me as happy as the rest of the bunch, it's a great place.

Their version of the mojito is excellent- plenty of fresh muddled mint and a slice of orange, quite strong and not too sweet but intensely flavored.

Another plus- their beer battered fish and chips arrives at the table hot and crisp and the wait staff cheerfully substituted sweet potato fries for the usual ones.

Re: “Buddy's Grill

Great food- I sometimes eat there 2-3 times a week! Their daily soup is usually excellent and the ever-present french onion is the best in town. For late night eats, this is a far better pick than a gross chain like Applebee's or TGIFriday's.

Re: “Boondocks Lounge

At the sign of the Big Bottle they have the finest unpretentious music venue in town. Great musicians (mostly local, but some blues stars also turn up), a well-used dance floor, pool tables, no pseudos, no pressure to drink. They also put on rockin' benefit performances when the need arises; does that make 'em Boondocks saints?

Re: “Guiseppe's

Some of the best and most reasonabley priced italian food we have ever had. We love it and go as frequently as we can. Everything we 've tried, we loved! Best meatballs in Tucson. The Seafood Soup is phenomenal; the broth is to die for. So pleased to have Guiseppe's as our go-to place! We wish him much success and tell everyone we can about the place.

Re: “Lupita's Cafe

TBG is one of those people who orders the same thing whenever he's trying a new restaurant. In the case of mexican food, it's always beef tacos in crispy corn tortillas. Along with the world's largest quesadilla and a Sonoran hot dog to die for, today's lunch at Lupita's included "the very best..... by miles...." beef tacos in Tucson.

Re: “Caffe Torino

My husband and I dine out frequently. We are extremely particular in our expectations and this restaurant far exceeds them. We often find ourselves dining here on a couple nights throughout our week. We also LOVE their italian breakfasts & lunch dishes! Cafe Torino is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with an intimate feel. The owner is "hands on" and frequently visits with her guests when not in the kitchen. The food is absolutely exceptional. The pasta is all homemade, each morning ,and the menu offers many northern italian authentic selections as well as rotating specials. I have impressed many by bringing them to this little gem. For breakfast, lunch or dinner...it is one to not miss!

Re: “Kazoku Sushi and Japanese Cuisine

We have eaten here 18-20 times; for lunch 25% of the time and dinner 75% of the time. The food is consistently good, and the service has been very good as well. The sushi is fresh and the vegetables crunchy and tasty, especially the cucumbers. I've had the grilled salmon and the chicken teriyaki as well, and the hot foods are pretty close to as good as the sushi. Plum ice cream for dessert seems to be standard without asking. The iced green tea is refreshing as well. A definite favorite of ours.

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

I live in Chicago and was visiting friends in Tucson. We decided to try Bubby's to see how it measured up. I had the Chicago dog and my husband had a burger. We both thought the food was great. We thought we were back in Chitown for a moment until we looked out and everything was beige. We actually went back again before we left Tucson!

Re: “East Coast Super Subs

I may only be 24 and from Kansas, but this place has the best Hot Wings and Sandwiches I have ever had. They know how to make good food here, and will gladly provide without raiding your wallet. I haven't met a sandwich here that wasn't toothsome, certainly don't hesitate to venture away from the top ten. The Chicken Caccitore, Eggplant Parm, and Philly Phanatic are all worthy of your attention, if you order the Italian make it a grinder.

Be prepared to be nice to the servers, generally there's only one on staff (in addition to one of the owners), so they can get overworked if there's a sudden rush.

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

The food is terrific, the decor is fun, and the service is friendly. Try the hand-cut fries. I overheard a little girl say to her mom, "these fries are better than McDonald's". They are that good!!

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

You can't beat the food! Being from Chicago, it definitely matches up to the best of them. With the Twin Peaks interchange being completed, it will make it much easier to get to this great restaurant, but it is definitely worth it to make your way out now!

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Skybox's atmosphere and entertainment are far better than expected for a Tucson watering hole and dance place. The bands on Friday and Saturday evening play oldies and pop and are the best dancing with class Tucson has had to offer in a long time. The servers are very professional and friendly. The food is of good quality and the price is not bad. It far exceeds places on Tanque Verde, Swan and Ft. Lowell, Campbell and River or Campbell and Skyline as a place for professionals to meet on Friday evening.

Re: “Kazoku Sushi and Japanese Cuisine

Just discovered this place not too long ago and it is delicious! The rolls are on the smaller side but the sushi is good and service is attentive. For a dinner for two of appetizer, 3 sushi rolls, chicken teryaki, 2 large beers and a large sake we walked out paying $65 which wasn't bad. Definitely must try!

Re: “Monkey Burger

Simply put, its amazing. Burgers piled high with savory vegetables (even fruit if you desire). Sweet potato fries are a MUST. Service is fun, friendly and helpful.

Re: “CataVinos Wine Shop and Tasting Room

Have you ever wanted to learn about wine without appearing ignorant around wine snobs? Well, I found Cata Vinos was just the place. Imagine relaxing in a comfortable atmosphere, sampling a variety of tasty wines. You will find the staff knowledgable & helpful, the patrons friendly, and the well stocked shop has something for everyone.....all under $15! Wonderful fun to go with a party of friends, although I'm just as comfortable going alone. Very welcoming.

Re: “Game on Sports Grille

There is absolutely nothing like Game On Sports Grille in our around Tucson. This is truly a neighborhood bar in the fashion of what I grew up with. We know the onwers, everyone at the bar makes you feel welcome and there is a real commoraderie here that is unlike other "corporate places" or local dive bars.
There has never been once that I have been here where the owner and his wife did not come out and say hi. Last evening I asked him if he could make a thin crust pizza and he said, "I'd be happy to make it myself for you. 20 minutes later out popped an outstanding thin crust pizza.
The food here is outstanding and made from scratch, and the owners do everything they can to keep the prices real low.
This is one of our favorite stops and perhaps the best overall value in town.
