Re: “Takamatsu

The teppanyaki tables are always a fun, though warm, experience. Your choice of meats cooked with an entertaining show right before your eyes. Like I said, the teppanyaki tables are a warm environment and your drinks tend to get warm unless they're quaffed soon after serving. A good place to take a large group or just the two of you.

Re: “Touchdowns

Lots of TV's but kinda bright for a sports bar. My wife and I both had a sandwich, with fries, and found the bread a little dry. The sandwich makings, themselves, were just fine and tasty.

Re: “Ruby Tuesday

The burgers are huge. Fortunately, for those of us who like our burgers barely done, all burgers can be cooked to order and the heart hospital is just across the street! Bison burgers are available. Has a full bar with a few TV's to watch your favorite sports programs. Wines can be ordered by the glass (6 oz. and 8 oz.) or by the bottle. The salad bar has quite a variety of items and can be a meal in itself.

Re: “Firebirds Wood Fired Grill

Although I'm generally among the younger diners (at the ripe young age of 51), a variety of folks dine on the meat here. The lunch crowd is generally composed of groups of businesswomen and older shoppers. The best filet mignon is served at lunch. For whatever reason, the steaks seem to get lower in quality as the day wears on. Dinner has a more varied clientele and the scene is more active than at lunch. The wine list is serviceable and the "Firebirds Red" is a pretty good value.

Re: “Saffron Indian Bistro

This place is probably the best in Tucson but far below the standards of the proper indian you would get in England. As it is a bit of a jaunt, I urge EVERYONE to hop the pond and enjoy a bite! Warning...It will kind of ruin your future indian meals here. Sorry.

Re: “La Parrilla Suiza

The food is pretty good here. It is a little different then the typical taco and burrito fare. They have some different items that are worth trying. Decent service. Prices could be cheaper though.

Re: “The B Line

Food here is high quality with great presentation. I have to say that I feel the B Line is a little overpriced for what it is, however. Just bear that in mind if you choose to go here: it is good, but spendy.

The B Line serves a variety of standard cafe fare, sandwiches, soups, and salads, as well as a heartier assortment of entrees, such as Penne alla Vodka and Salmon Salad.

I had the Salmon Salad; the salmon was deliciously marinated and grilled, then laid on a generous bed of mixed greens with various garden salad fixings on the side. You get a choice of dressing, and I chose Soy Ginger. I do wish the greens had been chopped before serving, as there were huge pieces that were awkward. That's my only complaint about the otherwise fine meal.

Someone in our party had a quesedilla, which he claimed was the best he'd ever had.

Everyone in our party was satisfied with the food.

The B Line is housed in a restored building on 4th avenue, which has a rustic kind of ambiance. It's very visually appealing.

The B Line is also usually very populated; would be nice if it stayed opened later. The owner also maintains Time Market at University and 4th ave, which is another Tucson favorite of mine.

Re: “The B Line

Great atmosphere, always fun to sit at the big communal table by the register. Small but always good beer and wine selection. Favorite tonight was the vanilla porter.

The food has always been competently prepared and worth the price; has never really wowed me until tonight's salmon salad. Try the avocado dressing.

Rotating dessert display is the best in town I can say tonight, but I'll give the Cup another chance next week.

Re: “HomeTown Buffet

As stated in my comments on Golden Corral, I like the concept of buffets. The food at Hometown is mediocre for the most part, and there is less from which to select than Golden Corral. I am convinced their mashed potatoes are INSTANT POTATOES which is unappetizing. One can serve one's self beverages (unlike Golden Corral) without relying on a waitperson.
