Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Consumer BEWARE!!!

Check your carry out food before you leave the store.

In Alibaba, you'll be charged ($39.99) for a combo (Beef, lamb and ground beef) but they intentionally give you beef steak, double ground beef and no lamb, while they charge you for the price of the lamb in their combo meal. The food is covered professionally and you think you'll have no reason to open the cover and check the food.
When you let them know about it, they admit that was what they gave you and they've charged you for the lamb combo without telling you!!!

They say they do that sometimes to their customers and they don't refund the customer!!!!

Alibaba restaurant lacks business integrity and honesty.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

I've gotta say, I am disappointed in the Speedway store.

Luke's, on Alvernon, is the real deal; the old fellow there is related to the master Italian beef maestro I grew up with in Chicago. He knows his stuff; not so at the other locations which apparently are owned/run by others. Point: dryish beef sandwiches are a no-no. Italian beef has to DRIP and SOP thru the brown bag - you have to wear an apron to eat it. At $6.95 a pop, a customer should be licking their fingers after eating one, and lusting after another.

Go to the Alvernon store; I hope it still delivers.

Re: “CafĂ© Marcel

I love these crepes!!! Both the savory and the sweet crepes are great. The classic Swedish ligon berry is my favorite and the tea flavors are wonderful (for those non-coffee drinkers).

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: “The Sausage Shop Meat Market and Deli

I have been buying from this store for 13 years. I have even ordered fresh turkeys and standing rib roasts. All the food has been wonderful. I drive in from Peoria, AZ every 3-4 months and always stop and fill up the cooler. They even make a wonderful horseradish that is fresh and guaranteed to clear your sinuses. Will be back there in August for more.

Re: “Oregano's

The first pizza i consumed from this restaurant, was a regular flat pizza, and, it was quite tasty. i returned,and, ordered a pan pizza. It consisted of a pile of canned tomatoes on top of a bland tasting dough.

Re: “Blue Willow

My family and I are addicted to the great food, good service, and charming atmosphere. sitting outside has that "comfortable" feel. We've tried most dishes on the main menu and have enjoyed every one! Ate there again last Friday and they hit a homerun again!

Re: “Buffet at the Desert Diamond Casino and Hotel

I think its a rip off. I went with my mom & 2 of my children on Sunday for brunch for Father's Day. They were charging 19.95 per adult with is reasonable but then they said they didn't have a kids price they were charging me 19.95 for my children who were 4 & 5 which I think is ridiculous! Really like they don't make enough money? Half price would've been fine but to pay the same as an adult is crazy!

Re: “Hooters

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: “Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant

I find this place gross and a disgrace to italian cuisine. I really hate to bash a local independent restaurant, but frozen, boxed apps, and an absolute flavorless sauce is a sure fire way to not endear yourself to an italian foodie.

The reason why the Joe's special is so popular? That is the only dish containing garlic and the cheese masks the horribly HUNTS tomato sauce.

Step ya game up! Nothing like my "Mama's" cooking.

Re: “Maria’s Café

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: “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: “Ba-Dar Chinese Restaurant

The difference between eating in at Ba Dar and ordering delivery is night and day. Some consistency would be appreciated.

Re: “The Hog Pit Smokehouse Bar and Grill

This place has a great deal of potential and is pretty damn good as is. There are times, however, where their BBQ lacks the flavor punch that it is capable of.

As a bar, this place is 5 stars for sure!
