My partner and I love to start our weekends off at Cata Vinos for the Thrusday or Friday night wine tasting. Yvonne (owner) always has great wines selected for the tastings and we usually pick up a bottle or six from the tasting to take home and enjoy. It's a warm, friendly place were we can get together at the end of the week and relax or meet friends and catch up over delicious, very reasonably priced wines. Even though we live in Vail, we just have to get our regular Cata Vinos fix...it's definitely worth the trip.
I HIGHLY recommend Catavinos and its owner Yvonne Foucher. Catavinos is a nice little bodega on the East side of town. It has a wonderful variety of foreign and domestic wines and a ceiling price, in the store, of $15.99. Catavinos offers a fine atomosphere for shopping, tasting, and learning about wines. Yvonne is a VERY knowledgeable and friendly proprietor who always has a smile and a tip on the latest tasty addition to her bodega. We live more than 20 miles from Catavinos, don't get there as often as we'd like, but still stop in to stock up whenever we're in the neighborhood. Despite not seeing us as often as her regulars, Yvonne remembers us, our tastes in wine, and greets us warmly. Don't take my word for it. I urge you to try Catavinos for yourself and note why it is a delightful difference on the landscape of Tucson wine stores!
At the top of my list for a place to get together with friends and get to meet others. The price is right at under $15 per bottle.
Beautiful atmosphere, Great food, nice wine list and realistic price, Outstanding service a great place for a special event. Almost like a Manhattan Resturant but not cramped tables, and no surly attitude. Great for a Specail event. Please do not ruin the atmosphere by bringing unruly children.
Very friendly staff, food is good and inexpensive.
Great $3 Margaritas
I regularly get together with friends for wine tasting at Cata Vinos... Our form of happy hour. You can't beat the comfortable setting nor the prices for a great wine selection!
Yes, best ever. Thank god these guys are in my neighborhood and a way better alternative to Viva, or taco shop. Buen Taco!
Always a treat to eat there when in town. Great sandwiches and soups, and the staff are very pleasant.
Great food, great price. Also if your military they have great military discounts. It's a great place to feed the whole family on a low budget with some good food. We always seem to have better service at thier broadway location, however the other locations aren't bad either.
Great service--ginormous servings and fries to die for. Roomy atmosphere with plenty of tvs to catch your fave sporting event.
Great place there is nothing like it in Tucson but everyone knows that and it it is not big enough to hold everyone who wants to start there night off
Great sports bar and the crowd is all ages and has a great veiw you can relax and not worry about fights and even worse I have notice in other parts of the city it seems dirty with lots of mad people this place is a good time for people that like to have a drink in peace and watch a game, now if your the type of person who needs alot of drama in your night life then maybe you could stay on your side of town and go to your local dirty south tucson bar
I thought it was a fun place. Nice TVs to watch sports and fun bands - especially on Fridays. My dinner was excellent too.
Love this Restaurant! Defienently my favorite place to go!
I've eaten at the B Line a hundred times. Their weekend breakfasts are great. (Try the crepecakes -- even if you don't like pancakes you'll love these. And the biscuits are fantastic.) The fish tacos are the best in town. The pasta alla vodka (or try it with half-salad) is amazing. Deserts vary from great to awesome. Don't neglect the microbrews on tap.
As for the price, it's higher than you might expect an average fare -- but the B Line isn't average, it's really good food. The quality of ingredients is extrememly high (organic greens, high quality chicken and eggs). I expect to pay a little more for food that is this tasty and good for the planet.
5 stars for food quality, portion, freshness, presentation, flavor, value and service.
Yum! When Filling the bowl make sure and leave enough room for the meat at the end of the bar... or better yet start with the meat - compact it as much as you can then heap the bowl with veggies before going to the seasonings. This really cooks down so don't be shy.
I'm "visiting" Tucson while my husband prepares for a heart transplant and today was my birthday. I'm originally from Phoenix area and my husband knew I was missing various celebrations from friends and co-workers. He bid me go and find the best take-out in Tucson to enjoy back in the hospital room. The nurses on the cardiac floor recommended Guadalajaras. I easily found the location and headed in for take-out. Upon entering, I was overwhelmingly welcomed. Several staff recommended various dishes and were a delight in helping me choose. They escorted me to the bar for a fabulous margarita while I waited and even had the salsa prepared in front of me - apparently not normally done for take-out. Upon return to the hospital, to my surprise they had tucked in a fabulous piece of chocolate cake within a festively hand-decorated to go box. What a treat!!!! Who needs celebrations in Phoenix -- head to a charming place with fantastic food and caring service!! Number 1 in my book!
The service - wonderful. The steaks - melt in your mouth delicious. The parking - not so great.
I've been going to Chad's for a good while and have never had a bad night there. The cheese bread, served hot to each table, is incredible, while the steak just plain make me drool.
The only drawback to the wonderful place, is the parking. The parking lot is kinda small and the surrounding businesses are very defensible of their lots. It can get a bit busy; however, a simple reservation and you're good for later.
Just keep in mind, if you do have to park a bit away - you can walk off the homemade desserts...
I was excited to try The Loop Taste of Chicago when I discovered it. Wow! It met every expectation. The atmosphere is fun with lots of Chicago sports memorabilia, the menu is surprisingly versatile with something for any palate. And the food... let's start by saying this was the best pizza I have had west of Chicagoland!! Not only the pizza, but I have enjoyed everything I have tried. Whether I want to watch a game in the bar with friends, or have dinner with family, this is my favorite local spot. It is easy to find - just north on Oracle as you come into Oro Valley sharing the parking lot with the Holiday Inn Express. I highly recommend this place for everybody and every occasion!!!
