Re: “Blue Willow

My family and I are addicted to the great food, good service, and charming atmosphere. sitting outside has that "comfortable" feel. We've tried most dishes on the main menu and have enjoyed every one! Ate there again last Friday and they hit a homerun again!

Re: “Buffet at the Desert Diamond Casino and Hotel

I think its a rip off. I went with my mom & 2 of my children on Sunday for brunch for Father's Day. They were charging 19.95 per adult with is reasonable but then they said they didn't have a kids price they were charging me 19.95 for my children who were 4 & 5 which I think is ridiculous! Really like they don't make enough money? Half price would've been fine but to pay the same as an adult is crazy!

Re: “Hooters

food is disgusting, bar is more limited than your grand dad's liquor cabinet, and it is an obvious chain... BUT WHO CARES!

Re: “Vero Amore

Now this is some Italian food! The crispy thin crust pies are excellent. There are also little gems of italian greats all over the menu, such as the shrimp fra diablo...

This place will continue to be in my rotation of eateries.

Re: “Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant

I find this place gross and a disgrace to italian cuisine. I really hate to bash a local independent restaurant, but frozen, boxed apps, and an absolute flavorless sauce is a sure fire way to not endear yourself to an italian foodie.

The reason why the Joe's special is so popular? That is the only dish containing garlic and the cheese masks the horribly HUNTS tomato sauce.

Step ya game up! Nothing like my "Mama's" cooking.

Re: “Frankie's South Philly Cheesesteaks

Frankie's is the absolute best! Quintessential east coast sub shop right here in Tucson. The cheesesteaks are amazing, Whiz, add hot peppers!

Try to go when Frankie himself is there. Not only does he heighten the customer service experience ten-fold, but when the Cat is away the mice have been known to try and skimp on the cheese.

Re: “Poco and Mom's

This place is awesome, for all your mexican food needs. The drive through option is heads above your typical drive through mexican. The dinner plates are very tasty as well, although to onion heavy.

Where this place really shines though, are the breakfast plates. You have not lived until you have had the red chili pork tamales with fried eggs on top!

Re: “Ba-Dar Chinese Restaurant

The difference between eating in at Ba Dar and ordering delivery is night and day. Some consistency would be appreciated.

Re: “The Hog Pit Smokehouse Bar and Grill

This place has a great deal of potential and is pretty damn good as is. There are times, however, where their BBQ lacks the flavor punch that it is capable of.

As a bar, this place is 5 stars for sure!

Re: “Dragon Village Restaurant

can't understand the other reviews, awful food ... very oily because too much food is being cooked in pans and the pan is not hot enough. My wife and I were both ill after our meals here. this is a common theme in their Yelp reviews. We should have listened to those warnings.

Re: “The Hog Pit Smokehouse Bar and Grill

Good to see the Hog Pit getting some good reviews, this place has great BBQ. I've had the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, the ribs, and also the chicken. The meats are always tender and juicy, the rub they put on the slabs is great, as are the 3 homemade sauces (mild, med, hot). Sides are excellent too - slaw, cornbread, very tasty beans. Owners are very friendly, good selection of beers, plus sweet tea. Nice place, the pit master knows his stuff, check it out!

Re: “Restaurant Sinaloa

Our family had a birthday dinner here thursday May 23rd. Celebrating many blessings.
The food was outrageous.. delicious and prepared with a thoughtful hand. I never knew
you could prepare shrimp in so many ways.. I really appreciated the clean surroundings.

Re: “Chili's

We are done with Chili's. It has lost its appeal from a time when service was prompt and the food was hot. Our server apologized from not having the food we ordered (they were out of stock) to having to wait for them to find green peppers for our fajita, then not bringing any out. Rice and broccili cold, steak not even close to being the right temperature. It wasn't even busy, so running out of food, slow apologetic service, and undercooked cold food is inexcusable. Chili's best days are very much behind them

Re: “Cushing Street Restaurant and Bar

Went here for dinner after a show and after we paid our bill we were asked to leave becuase they had a reservaton for our table even though there were open tables. we told the hostess we were staying for the jazz and she left. a few minutes later, the owner came to our table and asked if the hostess explained that the table was needed for reservations (we made reservations too). when we asked about the open tables, she said that we have overstayed our reservation and kept reminding us what time our reservations were for. For 3 of us, the bill, with tip, came to $170 so it wasnt like we dropped only $10. As we were rising from the table, the owner continued to berate us about overstaying our welcome and insisted that we "need to understand" that you can't stay for jazz at 7:30 for a 4:30 reservation. My friend said she didn't need to understand anything becuase she would not be returning and shockingly, the owner said good, don't come back. We were so embarrased to be asked to leave a restaurant. we are 3 professional women who went after the show at the TCC so it wasn't like we were college kids acting rowdy. The owner actually followed us out into the street continuing to explain her reason for asking us to leave. The way the owner should have acted was to explain to us that they had reservations waiting and offer to move us to the bar and even offer to buy a drink for our troubles (although we would have declined a free drink becuase we had already had 2 glasses with dinner). I am simply amazed that the owner and hostess asked us to leave instead of offering to relocate us. I will never return and I will make sure to spread the word to avoid this place.
