Not a lot of people know about sushi on oracle, but once you eat there, you will never go anywhere else! Their service is outstanding and their food is very fresh. The sushi chefs are super friendly when you go and sit down at the sushi bar. It's a small restaurant, but very family oriented. Everybody helps each other out. I would recommend anybody and everybody to go here!
Bottom line is El Charro sucks, regardless of location. They don't even heat up their Americanized, pre-made food enough. Come on guys. At least heat your crap up a little longer in the microwave before you serve it.
Decent sea food but most meals are somewhat overpriced. Also, the drinks are "stupid" expensive here. The exterior is dumpy though the inside is just fine. Want better seafood and ambiance for about the same price? Make the trip to the Skyline area.
This kind of a late entry as we ate here a few months back. Verdict? OK food. Basically a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. About the anti SB1070 comment from john127. If that's true about not speaking English to customers I won't be back either. This same thing happens to me every time I go to the deli section at all Food City stores. The women actually give me an attitude for not ordering in Spanish. This is totally unacceptable! If you dislike America why are you here? Oh that's right. The free government handouts. I forget.
Really good pizza. Not the best in town but certainly good. We'd probably go more often but the place is small and gets way too busy.
Rather crappy tasting food. Sorry but this place isn't good these days. Soggy tacos, mushy undercooked tamales, rice and beans served at room temperature, and the beef tastes like 5 day old leftovers. Maybe they used to be good? I notice more and more graffiti on this side of town to. Is everything going downhill around here?
This is a great place! I love the fast, fresh, healthy food here. I followed Lori to this location when she left her Oracle location. Friendly family owned place, I'm always greeted by name, and the food is consistently excellent. I can't say enough about it.
A wonderful place, Tucson is lucky to have it. Before you go to a big box wine store, stop here and you'll keep coming back. The owner is very full of wine knowledge and has never let us down with a recommendation. Go there!!!!
Pizza here is fantastic. Thin crust Chicago style. I love the turkey sausage he makes, and the shrimp and artichoke specialty pizza is delicious!!
Love Jax. It is one of our favorites on the the north side. Food is simple, relaxed and perfectly prepared every time. The quality is there on the plate! Brian is a sharp restauranteur and his focus on detail, quality and a truly comfortable atmosphere is what keeps us coming back again and again.
Okay but the food was underwhelming. When we went the waitstaff seemed to lack training. Lighting and table location was odd.
They really dont know how to cook veal. One dish that promised prosciutto used slices of processed deli ham. An osso bucco dish used pork shank instead of veal. Their wine selection is poor- no thought whatsoever to their wine list. Just a random sampling of ordinary Italian and California selections one would find at Wal-mart. Service is very spotty and unprofessional. Prices not competitive with other more authentic Italian bistros in the area. Avoid at all costs.
Had Breakfast at their Speedway/Kolb location, Nice clean and new place with great staff but High prices coupled with just OK bland food. The place has not changed since my last visit about 3 years ago. Won't be going back for awhile.
Not fancy but with really well made food. The menu is limited, which in this case, is good, as every thing is home/scratch made. Service is very freindly albeit bit slow, but after a Margarita or two, who cares. This could become a very nice neighborood cantina.
Best pizza in Tucson, hands down. Some people may prefer Brooklyn's but understand that these two places do pizza totally differently. Grimaldi's uses a real coal-fired oven, whereas Brooklyn's uses a standard pizza over. Both places are very good but we like Grimaldi's the best. One thing I gotta ask though. Who on earth orders a big hunk of cheese cake after stuffing their face with pizza?
We tried it because we were getting hungry and wanted to eat something before shopping at Sunflower Market. Overall we weren't impressed. Sorta ugly building, very average food, slow service. Now we now better.
Friendly servers but other than that we really weren't impressed with the food. Having lived back east we had great dogs and deli food. Want a really great hot dog? Try a simple Sabrret, Coney Island or Nathan's dog with just a few of the standard toppings. This way you'll actually be able to taste the product. Jalapenos, pickles, mayo... Forget it!
In any case, I wish the business well. However, even with the new on/off ramp now being open the location is unlikely to draw lots of patrons. Let's hope their lease is reasonable. As a former business owner, I know all too well how many hands, (taxes, worker's comp., electric bill, etc..), are in your pocket every month. It's tuff making it.
The hamburgers are rather small here. I ordered a guacamole burger and guacamole was more like a watery guacamole sauce, yuk! The fries were OK though. Service is typical Tucson. In other words, nothing special whatsoever. Overall the place isn't terrible. We just won't be rushing back.
I only gave them three stars, because they put cheese in their guacamole! It is always a sign of bad guacamole when restaurants/suppliers try to stretch out their guac with cheese or sour cream. A little more authenticity would go a long way!
Food is ok but the service is terrible. Last time I went I waited ten minutes for someone to come out to seat us or even acknowledge our existence. Just left. Haven't been back since.
