Re: “Micha's

I lived in Tucson for 38 years, I ate at Michas at least once a week for many of those years. The best breakfasts, best Chimichangas, best machaca in town. I left Tucson five years ago and one for the things I miss most is Machaca and Eggs at Michas.

About a year ago I made a brief visit to the Old Pueblo, Michas was still there, the food still good and now I miss it even more.

Re: “Guadalajara Grill East

I love this place! Great food (had the fajitas, burros, seafood). Servings are large - I am able to take 1/2 home for lunch next day. Great beans. Good Margaritas. (Happy hour they are only $3!) Women will make salsa at your table - free, but they have a basket for donations.
It is one of the few restaurants in Tucson I will wait for a seat to open up. (FYI...not many around. Since Tucson is so blessed with so many great restaurants we can usually find one with no wait, even on weekends.)

Re: “Blanco Tacos and Tequila

The chocolate cake and the views is enough to keep you going back... and the food is good too!

Re: “Sir Veza's Taco Garage Speedway

CaliMan is insane, he's just pissed because he works for another store down the street (yes, we know who you are). Sir Veza's is a great place to eat for everyone! High quality, low prices, clean and family friendly.

Re: “Maria’s Café

Wonderful Home Cooking, what more can you ask for. I first stopped here when I wasn't a resident now after 13 years of living here, this is still our favorite family Mexican spot. Great Chip and Salsa to start, Frosty Mugs for Beers, silky sauces, and too many more. We have never had a bad meal, on occasion the service is tardy when they are busy but always good to great food offerings.

Re: “La Indita

I love La Indita! The food is fabulous and the prices can't be beat! Before I was a vegetarian my favorites were the chicken mole and green chicken enchiladas. Their mole is perfectly spiced and not too sweet, and their chicken is on the bone, rather than shredded, and always juicy and tender. Their green enchilada sauce is truely unique, creamy and rich. Now that I don't eat chicken, I enjoy their chili rellenos, mushroom enchilada, and potato tacos. They can even make your food Vegan! I encourage all weekly readers to eat here often. Their weekly lunch specials are $6 and come with rice and beans.

Re: “El Minuto Café

For nearly 30 years, I have had an office in the neighborhood of El Minuto, and have tried just about everything on the menu. Its all consistently good, and the service cannot be beaten. I especially like the carne seca and their basic salsa, which are as good as anywhere else in town.

Re: “La Botana Taco Grill and Cantina

they got the best Chicharrones on flour tacos in town. The Queso Fundito with extra chorizo and mushrooms while waiting for the tacos is pretty good too.
Then..... their Flan!!!!

Re: “Café Poca Cosa

Always a delight. Wished they served at the bar though.

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: “Little Café Poca Cosa

This place is amazing. The music is loud and your food is served up with love. You can taste how happy the workers are in the delicious food. Plus, they give to those in need each month. Try a basil pineapple drink and eat every bit of salad they put on your plate. Little Poca Cosa is rejuvenating and reminds me what I love about Tucson.

Re: “Café Poca Cosa

Still one of the best places in Tucson. Not as nice as it used to be in the old hotel location, the music has changed, the view is bad, and instead of flowers, plants and artifacts, it is steel, and more streamlined. However, the house margaritas are still great, the salsa freshly made, the carne asada tender and flavorful. I preferred the old lively place with the homemade dressing in wine bottles on each table...but I am glad she is still around and doing her magic in the kitchen. Suzanna showed Tucson a new form of Mexican cooking, without heavy cheeses, guacamole, and nachos; instead she cooks in the Sonoran style and that is light, flavorful, and memorable food. Thank you Suzanna!

Re: “Guadalajara Grill West

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!
