Re: “Falafel King

We had food delivered to our office for a luncheon and were very pleased. We ordered a combo chicken and beef schwarma, greek salad, humuus, tabbouleh, baklava, pita bread, sauces, etc. The food was hot, well seasoned, plentiful, good value and on time. Even folks who weren't sure they liked Lebanese food thought it was delicious. We are ordering again this week.

Re: “La Olla

La Olla isn't your average run of the mill Mexican restaurant like all the others in town. So far we found their meals to be tasty with a slightly different flare to them. The refried beans are by far the best we've had in Tucson. Lunch prices are really cheap too. We're not saying we love everything here, the chili rellenos aren't great. Like most places, they're pretty small. But overall this place is a nice welcome.

Re: “Firebirds Wood Fired Grill

What could be a reasonable restaurant is totally ruined by this chain's ridiculous overuse of salt. Every single menu item we've tried has been saturated with salt. In fact, the last time we went my lips felt parched from all the salt. I'm not kidding! We told the manager yet all he did was essentially deny the obvious fact of how they prepare their food. His loss because we're now done with Firebirds.

We guarantee you'll be blow away by Firebird's total overuse of salt. Think we're exaggerating? Find out for yourself, if you dare.

Re: “Guadalajara Grill West

Evidently some of you haven't tried Guadalajara on the East side on Kolb Rd going North near Speedway. They are very professional in all they do to serve you. By the way...The owners are from Washington state and Zeth is up on all counts. On Fridays they have musicians playing your requests. The service is fantastic. No soggy chips and the mole is fresh.

Re: “Guadalajara Grill West

Great margaritas, especially at happy hour. Love the fresh salsa, and the enchiladas de calabacitas are excellent!

The parking lot is overflowing every time I drive by, the secret must be out.

Re: “Toni's Family Restaurant

Standard diner fare, ate there twice. First had the chicken fried steak breakfast, very good, thin large steak cooked old fashioned style on the flat top vice deep frying, asked for scrambled eggs soft and that's how I got them. Second time, burger platter, asked for medium, done right! Fries were so hot and fresh I burnt my fingers at first. Super fast delivery, almost no waiting and they were busy. Only complaint was the waitress reeked of cheap perfume, but I guess that's a diner!

Re: “Solaris Restaurant

wow talk about BAD service, over priced... bad bad bad, I went in with my children and right away got the cold shoulder. It took the waitress well over an hour to even serve our salads and appetizer, and when I ordered shirly temples for my 3 kids (ages 2,4 and 12) she brought them all in wine glasses... for a 2 year old! they were out of some main greek dishes and after complaining about the wait the manager did not even come over to check on me. I went on 2 separate occasions because I beleive in 2nd chances and both times were very bad experiances!

Re: “Lupita's Cafe

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant! I have tried several meals and every one of them ~delicious! Lupita's has the best salsa; when I go to the register to pay my bill, I buy a quart! And their service is just as good as their food. I am so glad Lupita's came to Northwest Tucson!!

Re: “Sushi on Oracle

This is the best sushi in town in my book. The service is always great and the servers are graceful, kind, and personable. The portions are good, the sushi is divine and fresh, the tempura, best in town. The ambiance is simple and pleasant. It's can be a bit crowded but it's worth the minor discomfort. I have always felt well nourished and pleasant by the end of the meal. You can't go wrong here.

Re: “Sushi Garden

Cheesy low budget sushi. One time I got a piece of glass in my sushi rice. The owner tried to just give me a free dessert to make up for it. I should have sued.

Re: “Shogun Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar

I quit going to this place. The owner flat out refused to give us hot towels unless we sat at the sushi bar. The service got increasingly horrible. One night the waiter seemed to be on drugs and broke down crying at our table over some misperception he had over another customer. The place is run down and dirty. The sushi was big portions but I think it was mediocre at best. I strongly suggest going elsewhere like to sushi on Oracle.

Re: “Ikkyu

I love Ikkuyu. The service is great. I haven't been disappointed yet there. The udon bowls are yummy and piled high. The teriyaki is better than I have had in a while. The prices are great and the owner is always cheerful and helpful.

Re: “The Cup Café

Had my daughter's birthday celebration at the Cup in April and as usual, we loved it! Great food, relaxed service and that great "downtown" experience!

Re: “Anthony's in the Catalinas

Past it's prime, snotty service, food VERY mediocre and VERY expensive. Great wine list but after being insulted by the maitre 'd and the captain, disgusting Cesar salad made table side and so-so entrees; no wine in the world could have made this experience worth the time or money! Skip it and save both for one of our many worthy local Tucson restaurants!

Re: “Barrio Brewing Company

Loved the beer, I don't understand what everyone's complaining about. It was great, and the service was top notch. The food was pretty good, but I thought the IPA was one of the best I've ever tried. Each to their own, I suppose.

Re: “The Bamboo Club

Went here today, May 21st, for the first time. It was pretty good. Not much more to say other than I may be back. Give em a try.

Re: “Boston's The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

I've never had bad service and I have never ordered the same thing twice and I've found everything to be wonderful. The salad I had the first time was HUGE. The second time I tried the pizza and thought it was pretty good. The next time I had appetizers and drinks and I loved them so much, I took home an order of appetizers with me (with happy hour prices, why not?). I'm going to eat there tonight and I'm looking forward to it!

Re: “Dry River Company

Great place to sit and have a pizza. There used to be a really bad bakery in this location. The appetizers are incredible and the pizza sublime. We had the oven-baked garlic clove and it is incredible! I live in Phoenix and can't wait to get back there again.

Re: “Glass Onion Cafe

We met friends Saturday, 5/7 for lunch - as we purchased the groupon $10 for $20 food. Well, we think that the girl messed up our tickets so badly (must have been new) that the total for two was $26 (WTH)! On their menu you can get a sandwich, side and drink for $9.99...so how the heck did they come up with $26?? It was so awful, we just paid the extra 6 bucks and left. The meatball sandwich was cold by the time it got to me (we waited forever to get our food), the side salad was nothing special. Hubby had the roast beef sandwhich with pasta salad...again nothing special. Friends agreed, theirs was nothing special as well, certainly not to warrant $26 tab...for sandwhiches...come on! Won't be back.

Re: “Las Cazuelitas Event Center

I would not recommend the cazuelitas event center. I had my wedding there in April and the service was horrible. The contract we signed was not followed as promised. The wedding cake that was supposed to be included in the package was made out of frosted wood. Who in their right mind has a fake wedding cake. Tried to call and complain but the owner was not available. The staff assigned that night could not believe it either. To top it all off the owner is my new wifes family. If that's how they treat family imagine what they do to those that are not related. As of today they have not called to see how everything went. They don't deserve the one star I gave them. Maybe a quarter of a star.
