Never a chain "ethnic" restaurant, EVER! This is what On The Border is to mexican and Olive Garden is to Italian
The strip mall is dumpy, and the interior of Mother Hubbard's doesn't win for style. What they do have is great service, great food, and fair prices. My wife and I have been there for breakfast and lunch. It's pretty much a scratch prep for everything. Their locally sourced and created ingredients are top notch. Food with character!
great vegan menu!!!
They used CANNED ingredients to make your salsa. Tastes like Pace. Rest of the menu fare's the same. Definitely a gringo Mexican joint. Better choices elsewhere.
Very good sushi. Didn't try anything else, but will definitely go back.
Inattentive and slow service combined with mediocre food that's overpriced. Phony hippy vibe is the icing on the cake for this disaster of a cafe.
The best fried rice in town. Great Chinese food. Authentic Viet food. And good Thai food.
Terrible food and service. Better options for Greek food here in town.
Fantastic food, friendly service and great prices.
Terrible food and service at high prices.
I don't understand why people rate this place so high. I ordered a pork sandwich, and it was thin, shaved slivers of meat suspended in an oversweet, gelatinous sauce. Worst barbecue I've ever had. Maybe I caught them on a bad day but that was my experience.
Actually the one on Court is the original. I remember it when I was growing up in Tucson. My "friend" and "associate" Steve Flin was the nephew of the owner Monica Flin. Steve passed away in the 70's and per his request we had a party behind El Charro with alot of tequila. Oh well....just remembering....anyway, I always felt the restaurant had good food. But I've been living away from AZ for awhile now. I go once or twice a year to visit friends and family, but my favorite place is another place behind the police station on Stone.
Love this place. I have been coming here since I was a kid ( 30 + years sgo) Always great steak and beans. Pit beef is also excellent. My kids love the wild west show, train, and general store. My first choice for a steak dinner.
Have driven by twice recently and appears place has closed down.....
Service and food is great. They go out of their way to prepare what you like if you don't see it on the steam tables. Going beyond the mundane Chinese dishes is where they shine. The oysters, escargot, variety of soups, sushi all are superbly prepared.
We have never found the food to be cold and certainly irt is full of flavor.
We go to their other restaurant in Green Valley-Sahuarita "Panda House Restaurant".
Sean, Tim, TuiLynn, Emma and all the staff are courteous and can explain everything fully if you qwant to know. We have been there a coulpe of dozen times and never disappointed.
We are from San Franciso and enjoy Chinese Food to its fullest.
P.S. We like it!
"kimono-clad waitresses"???? who wrote that? It's dead wrong. Nonetheless, the food is great! Amazing portions, delicious, huge variety. I only wish they didn't close from 2:30 to 5:00. the wait staff is typically college students.
Delicious. Love them. Keep smokin' the Best BBQ in Tucson
It was Bocatta, sad that it closed as it was very good
No review, does anyone remember what this place was originally called. It was a almost fine dining restaurant with a intimate bar. I was a regular at Happy Hour in 94-95. Which probably explains why I can't remember the name.
Second time I have tried Panda Buffet and second time disappointed. Most dishes were barely warm, the chicken dishes were certainly not tender. The Mee noodles were tasty but not too warm. both shrimp dishes I tried, honey shrimp and another were badly prepared and almost powdery in texture. The Hot and sour soup was hot in temperature and spicy enough but lacked much in the way of tofu and vegetables. Service was good and friendly without being intrusive. The first time I went there I had a similar experience and thought it must have been an off day but now after going there for another time has proven to be the norm rather than the exception.
