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.

Re: “Jerry Bob’s

Ate there on 5-3-2011 The waitress we had had an attitude, she forgot one of our coffee's and when we asked for it she wasn't very happy. She almost dumped water on us, and proceeded to tell the cook about it....then we were worried about what was going to come out of the kitchen. The tortilla that came with breakfast was as hard as a rock, and wouldn't come off the plate...it was stuck! We turned the plate upside down and it still would not come off. If this waitress were one of my employee's, I would have fired her. Not only was breakfast bad (we had a party of 5) for all of us, the wait was extremely long. I still left a tip and told her that the only reason why I did was so that she would have a better day...her response..."Whatever"
Save your money, time, and palate... eat somewhere else.

Re: “Something Sweet Dessert Lounge

Their desserts are amazing, and their specials will sometimes blow your mind. Their staff has always been very friendly every time I've gone in. To accentuate the laid-back atmosphere, they have games you can play, or you can bring your own. They also have a great selection of hot teas, along with the standard milk selection. Sometimes you have to wait a while to get a table, and sometimes it takes a little bit to get your stuff, but that's because they're always busy with people who know just how amazing they are.

Re: “Char's Thai

Some dishes are a bit oily and they certainly don't use the best cuts of chicken or pork. You'll come across a little gristle here and there. Even so, this place offers some real tasty dishes. The curry is very good as are a few other items. Pleasant servers. Prices are very competitive too. With its few minor faults, this place remains one of the better Thai restaurants in town.

Re: “Bai Thong

In response to CaliMan's post that "Los Angles and Portland blow Tucson out of the water food-wise," first I'd just like to say that it's called 'LA' and it's spelled out, L-O-S A-N-G-E-L-E-S. While I agree that Tucson is no Asian food mecca by any stretch of the imagination, and that it is neither as cosmopolitan or West-coast hip as Portland, I think CaliMan is missing the most important detail here: nobody in Tucson cares about LA or Portland. What we have here is ours, and ours alone. So in terms of regionalism and localism, Tucson's Sonoran-inspired cuisine kicks LA and Portland right in their huevos. And we are grateful to have at least one Asian restaurant like Bai Thong that tries hard to make their dishes traditional. Rustic, traditional, and local cuisine is what Tucson is made of, and so, CaliMan, judging by your comments, I'd say that you've missed this aspect of Tucson culture entirely. Maybe you should just move back to 'Los Angles' and tell them that your taste buds dried out in the heat.

Re: “Dry River Company

One of the best thin crust pizzas in town made with hand-pulled mozzarella! Had their yummy chicken parm dinner the other night (homemade pasta noodles) and I could not finish it--too much food. This is rare for me.

Overall, the food has been great and there is a good selection for wine and beer, although I admit having a weakness for the PBR. Two patio seating areas, one for dining side, one for bar. Bar patio is a good option if you want to be a little rowdy at happy hour or if you smoke.

Keep up the good work DRC!

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Surly, slow service. Weird pureed "lentil" soup with no discernible lentils - tasted like Campbell's cream of tomato with dry herb garnish. The beef, lamb, chicken were gristly, un-choice cuts, overcooked, unmarinated, tasteless. Hummous was ho-hum, baba ghanoush disappointingly bland. Only the tabouli salad had any flavor. WARNING: Prices are more expensive in person than listed on their website, overly generous gratuity added automatically to check. Smallish portions considering price. VERY UNSATISFYING MEAL.

Re: “Bistro 44

Went here for my anniversary and the food, service, and atmosphere was charming and pleasant. It was a fantastic meal and our server was a delight.

Re: “Shogun Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar

Best we have experienced in Tucson. Fresh fish, large pieces and reasonable prices. Very good atmosphere and service.

Re: “Sushi on Oracle

Not a lot of people know about sushi on oracle, but once you eat there, you will never go anywhere else! Their service is outstanding and their food is very fresh. The sushi chefs are super friendly when you go and sit down at the sushi bar. It's a small restaurant, but very family oriented. Everybody helps each other out. I would recommend anybody and everybody to go here!

Re: “El Charro Café on Broadway

Bottom line is El Charro sucks, regardless of location. They don't even heat up their Americanized, pre-made food enough. Come on guys. At least heat your crap up a little longer in the microwave before you serve it.
