Re: “Maico

Best burrito's in the world! I don't live in Tucson but am going to retire there just so that I can get these vegetarian burritos twice a day for the rest of my life. I've tried them all and haven't found anything bad to say about anything. The service is GREAT and the staff are some of the most beautiful young ladies I have ever met. I hope that they all stay employed there even after graduating from the University of Arizona "GO KATS"! They don't deserve a five star rating but that is the highest it goes! They deserve a twenty million star rating!

Re: “El Sur

Favorite Mexican food, favorite service, and one of our top favorites in town. My four-year old, who's in love with Delia, chose this place for his b-day. They work their butts off there to provide for an excellent experience. Never had a bad experience and have probably eaten there 50 times.

Re: “La Cocina de Gabby

I just saw the film "Spinning Plates" that features La Cocina de Gabby. I was very touched by their beautiful and sad story.

The director has created a web site for strangers to help Antonio, Gabby and Ashley, if they wish.

I truly believe that American is the land of opportunity, but also of generous hearts.

Re: “La Fresita

(I’m waiting in line behind a woman speaking on her cellphone in another language. Ahead of her is a white man. After the woman hangs up, he speaks up.)

Man: “I didn’t want to say anything while you were on the phone, but you’re in America now. You need to speak English.”

Woman: “Excuse me?”

Man: *very slow* “If you want to speak Mexican, go back to Mexico. In America, we speak English.”

Woman: “Sir, I was speaking Navajo. If you want to speak English, go back to England.”

Re: “Lerua's

Leruas does stand out because of the best tamales anywhere. The enchiladas are great and the prices are very good. Numerous combination plates equal great deals.

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: “Teresa's Mosaic Café

The guys and I eat breakfast at Mosaic at least once a month. The food is always excellent, the service almost always good, and the beer cold. Most of us have been eating at the Mosaic for decades and will continue to for hopefully many more years. We appreciate the warm greetings we get from the owner and his family. The Mosaic is very much Tucson.

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: “El Charro Café Sahuarita

Nothing wrong with it being in Sahuarita...we need more sit down places to eat. I was thrilled to hear they were coming to Sahuarita. Hubby works at the PCC campus downtown and he and some of his instructers go to the original El Charros from time to time and he is always talking about it. I was a bit dissappointed, the tables were to close together. The food is so so...although I do like the original taco...they are made like I was taught to make the...beef patty and tortilla are fried together...they can keep their lettuce salad topping. I prefer shredded lettuce onions , tomatoes and cheese for my toppings..not a salad mixture with peas ans radishes. We have visited three times...I prefer Manuels local Mexican resturant. Sure would love to see and Italian or seafood eateries here in Sahuarita.

Re: “Papa Locos Tacos and Burgers

Papa Locos is sooooo goood. Actually you can grab a six pack of beer next door and bring it in to the restaurant. Alot cheaper than paying $4-5 for a beer at other places.

Re: “Guadalajara Grill West

I go to the Guadalajara Grill West

at Least 2 times per month for Happy Hour

Great Place to Chill; Beer and Margarita's are great.

Fresh Chips and Salsa; The Owner Emma is very customer service oriented

and plus she is easy on the eyes.

The bartenders Ramon and Christina are great.

I give this place a 10.

Re: “Maico

This is my neighborhood mexican joint and I go here at least 3 times a week. It never disappoints. A favorite is the bacon, egg and bean burrito without cheese or potatoes but I love the carnitas, carne asada, papas tacos, ceviche. You name it. You can ask for substitutions in all your burritos. I went on a burrito tour of a mile wide area and this is the BEST. I love their spicy salsa.

Re: “Chaco's Cafe

From the ambience, to the friendly staff, to the great food there is nowhere else in Tucson that I enjoy eating more. It is a must hit every time my family is in town!

Re: “Café Poca Cosa

The best food I've had in Tucson. I went last Septemeber for my birthday and again for Cinco de Mayo and then my mom, aunt and I resolved to go at least once a month. I always get the Plato Poca Cosa and give the chef free reign on what I eat and have never been disappointed. The chocolate mole is to die for.

Re: “Boca

We went on a Friday night, there was only one person working and he had four sets of customers waiting. So the service was lacking a bit. I didn't take away any stars for this for two reasons. One, he let us know he had to send the other person working with him home that night because he was too sick to be working. Not his fault. And two, the food was so darn good, we didn't even care that the service was a tad bit slow. We ordered Carne Asada tacos, Camaron (beer battered) tacos, the Mar y Tierra (Surf and Turf) tacos and the Ranchero Style Whole Pinto Beans. Everything was made to order so when we got them they were still sizzling from the grill. Wow, were we blown away! They use rib eye and fresh shrimp for the Mar y Tierra with a drizzle of mustard on top. I am obsessed with this one and wanted to go back the next day to see if I was dreaming about it or if was truly one of the best tasting tacos I ever tasted, it was! The batter on the shrimp was very light, crispy, tasty and complemented the shrimp perfectly. The salsas served were delicious too.

Everything was fresh and the quality of the meat and shrimp made a huge difference in the flavor and experience. I've eaten at alot of taquerias in this town, this place is now my Numero Uno!

Re: “San Carlos Mexican Grill

Awesome Tacos. Homemade shells that were light and crisp. Lots of refills of chips and salsa. Chili Rellenos not too much batter and fresh tasting.

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

I've always had fantastic food here, and find the service timely, friendly, in fact, extraordinary. And the prices are not at all expensive. The people who run this place are the best! The food is glorious. Noisy . . . ok, but not beyond a lot of restaurants. It's one of Tucson truly unique treasures. We take our local friends and our out-of-town guests here with pleasure.

Re: “Lupita's Cafe

Lupita's is horrible, the food came out about 25 mins after we ordered. Also the drinks, 7-up, water, and 2 mix drinks took 15 mins to come out, and they only had 4 tables of customers, They were not busy. They want to charge $1 for a little ramikin of limes. All the dishes are way over [riced. Two fish tacos: $9.95. 1 small bowl of menudo $5.95 and they charge for the limes as i said earlier. I have to say that it's been one of my worst dining experiences. want good mexican fare. try guadlajara grill, cafe poca cosa or el molinitos.
