Re: “Inca's Peruvian Cuisine

Absolutely delicious and authentic! I've been to Peru a couple times and Inca's brings Peru to Tucson. Tried the ceviche mixto, anticuchos, conchitos a la chalaca and papa rellena. All very good (ceviche was a little spicy for my liking, but still good!) and where else are you gonna find pisco sours? I was completely transported back to Peru, and will be going back to Inca's again and again!

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: “Rocco's Little Chicago

The wings are unbeatable here. Tried many others in Tucson and they cannot compete with Rocco's! The Great Chicago Fire pizza is hot, spicy and very delicious. We always order a large so we have leftovers for that hangover the next day!!! Another favorite is the Caprese Salad, first of all, it's huge enough to share and they do not skimp with the mozzarella at all, the basil is fragrant and flavorful, but the star of this salad is definitely the balsamic, we are sure it is homemade and it is appreciated! And do not, I repeat, do not leave without trying one of Lisa's cookies! They are usually out of them, so if you notice there are some when you get there, grab 'em and save them for later, you'll be glad you did. The servers are quick, friendly and attentive. And they have a nice selection of brews.

Yep, there's a reason for the packed parking lot and the wait!

Re: “47 Scott

Quiet, cozy, comfortable, a "gem". Excellent food and great service. I've had the cheese by the ounce and have been able to try many different varieties, it is served with fresh pears and a raspberry jam that complements the cheeses perfectly! The Wild Mushroom Salad is to die for, every bite of the delicious meatiness of the mushrooms, spicy crunchiness of the pecans and sweet tangy bacon vinaigrette satisfied me beyond my expectations, I've ordered this salad on three different visits, it's just that good! The grilled pineapple pound cake is light but indulgent and a perfect end to a perfect meal!

Re: “Chaffin's Family Restaurant

I own a little breakfast place myself but love to go here. This is one of those old americana style diners that unfortunately is a dying breed. If you go - come with the expectations of having a great old "diner experience" order the bacon, scrambled eggs, toast and hash browns while browsing the old vinyl record sleeves posted on the wall above the cooking area.

Re: “India Oven

Service was great, the server was a delightful and conversational woman. The buffet lunch was fantastic. I am a vegetarian so I stuck with the vegetarian items. Samosas were great, fluffy, and flavorful. The curries had a wonderful taste. I have never been to India Oven for dinner, but hope to in the future. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Re: “Saffron Indian Bistro

I found Saffron's food excellent. Value for money as well as quality on par w/ my experiences back home in the UK and Mother India herself. My only suggestion is to skip the buffett and order from the menu.

Re: “Blanco Tacos and Tequila

Re: “World Sports Grille

This was a great place for my 11 year old's birthday party. Parents got to sit in a private area and enjoy the game while the kids play video games. Pizza, beverages, game cards was a great deal! Would do it again in a heart beat.

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: “Bianchi's

Excellent pizza but still occasionally travel across town to get their lasagna special on Thursdays (for over 20 years!). Yes, it's that good.

Re: “Glass Onion Cafe

This place is awesome! Truly a must see place if you visit Tucson or are from here but have never stopped in.
The food is top of the line, mostly organic including their outstanding coffees!
Staff is friendly and really makes you feel welcome as does the owner/creator of the Glass Onion, Jen has out done herself with this charming Bealtes themed cafe.
Appropriate for all ages as they do not sell alcohol. The live musical performances really add to the flavor of this rare find (LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED)

Re: “Vivace

There they go again;being the best of the best in Tucson. After another 5 or so months of searching & still have not found another restaurant that can compare. Ate there 3 days in a row this week. Different waiters, different times, with different people & they still hit a home run each & every time. No, a Grand Slam! Why, because my dining companies also agree. Simonetti , Anne & Don

Re: “Govinda's Natural Foods Buffet and Boutique

Govinda's Natural Foods has been serving vegetarian meals in Tucson since 1992! The food Govinda's offers is wholesome, healthy, organic, and blessed. The restaurant has a spotless appearance with touches of charming and unique thoughtfulness such as mood lighting, exotic decorations from foreign lands, spiritual literature, a boutique, an outside dining area with a water fountain, a bird aviary, and Koi pond. All of these aesthetics add to the serene and peaceful atmosphere.
Both lunch and dinner are served in an all you can eat Buffet style. Many of the fresh vegetables served in the salad bar are not only organic but are also purchased from local growers. The salad dressings are all homemade and offer a variety of healthy flavors and tastes. The hot side of the buffet contains both brown and white rice, two yummy hot soups, fresh steamed vegetables, spiced just right cooked veggies, and an entree for dinner. In addition, homemade bread and sweet deserts are baked fresh daily. Also, there are always dairy and glutton free selections on the menu for those with in tolerances, and all day Thursday is vegan day!
I eat at Govinda's everyday except for Monday when the restaurant is closed. Stepping onto the property, instantaneously my mind relaxes. Once I make my way into the restaurant area, the meditative music permeating the atmosphere calms my body, and the aromas from the fresh food arouses my senses. I delicately fill my plate with my chosen selections of delicious food cooked with love and devotion and sit down at a table to eat quietly. Literally, every bite taken equals pure bliss, as I smile and chew thoroughly so as to enjoy the savory tastes! Dining at Govinda's Natural Foods brings my body, mind, and spirit peace.

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: “Ike's Coffee and Tea

I have been regularly going to Ike's Coffee and Tea for about 3 years. They have a pretty wide selection of teas. They will accommodate you and make ice tea out of their types of normally hot teas. I mostly purchase the "Prickly Pear" Ice Tea. It has a nice refreshing taste and is not brewed too strong. Their have their own label for coffee. I have been pretty satisfied the limited times I had their coffee drinks. A friend that regularly visits Tucson, raves about their coffee. She states it is the best coffee she has had from a cafe.

I was a vegetarian and have only tried a couple of their plates. They do have a few vegetarian options. They have a Veggie a la Rosene, a sandwich with humus, green chilies, apples and feta. I regularly get the Humus Plate, which is a good snack for two people. Now, that I am a vegan, that is the only daily option for me.

The staff have always been nice and pleasant. They always greet you with a smile and have tried to answer my questions about certain menu items. Make sure you leave a tip when you visit here. They deserve it.

They do have daily soups. Which is my only negative comment about Ike's. Some of staff does not seem for sure to know the allergen content of the soup and if it is vegan. It would be a good idea to have a book that states what is in each soup, so the staff can reference it. I have been to other restaurants and cafes and they have this type of chart to help their customers.

Overall in my opinion Ike's is one the best coffee places in town. They are a weekly stop on when I go to the grocery store or doing my errands on that side of town.
