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: “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: “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: “The Eclectic Café

Excellent food, Tucson best breakfasts. Don't miss the chiliquilas. Dinners are also tasty and varied. Even outside tables. Best on the east side of town.

Re: “Ba-Dar Chinese Restaurant

Best in Tucson and perhaps Arizona. Prices are good, portions are large and the food is excellent.

Re: “La Cocina Restaurant, Cantina and Coffee Bar

La Cocina has great food whether you want a nibble or a meal. La Cocina is in the courtyard of the beautiful Old Town Artisans of Presidio Barrio. La Cocina has a great assortment of live music. What else could there be?!

Re: “The Dish Bistro and Wine Bar

This was my wife and my first evening out in Tucson and it DID NOT disappoint. Everything written above proved to be true: intimate, excellent service and a bargain. I LOVE, I mean LOVE mussels. Sitting at the bar, a GREAT glass of white, professional wait staff and a steaming, aromatic bowl of mussels was just what a stranger in a strange land required - home. The Rumrunner was also an experience worth revisiting with an excellent selection second to none. The Friday bar special made it all the more affordable. Go, you’l enjoy.

Re: “Poco and Mom's

This could have it all. For a lonely boy looking for chile with an ‘e’ this place comes so close. Just not bold enough with the what we New Mexicans need to wake up our old decrepit bodies on a cold winter’s day. Having said that, it’s still the BEST (and maybe ONLY) place for New Mexican food in town. Once you go, you’l never go back to that Sonoran sludge of too much of everything except flavor that’s called Mexican food in Tucson. Yes, totally biased - and spoiled.

Re: “Crying Onion Café

We eat here quite regularly. Always a good experience, and one of the kids' favorite places to go. I've never experienced any bad service or bad attitudes. In fact, I would question those people who rush home to go online to complain about a place. If you don't like it, don't go back. Vote with your dollars, not with some stupid website.

Re: “Sushi Ten

I have personally been going to this amazing place for the past couple years. My family and friends use Sushi Ten for celebrations or just a night out. This is the only place i have ever been to let alone just in Tucson that has a half off happy our of such a variety of things for such a long period of time.

Re: “The Big Hat Bar and Grill

This place is under new management and is now a great place to visit. The owner and his wife are very friendly and make you feel right at home. The Mexican menue is typical, but the quality of the food is way above average. The pozole, which is available only a couple of days a week can't be surpassed. It has to be the best in the Tucson area and if you are lucky enough to be there when they have it, you're in for a real treat. The chef really knows how to cook terrific Mexican food that is fresh and delicious. The second time we went we had the enchaladas and the tamales and we were not the least bit disappointed. Everything was moist and flavorful and could'nt have been better. If you happen to be driving south on Nogales Highway, don't pass up the opportunity to enjoy this great family run bar and grill, or better yet, set it as your destination and plan a trip to eat there as soon as you can. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
