Re: “1702

Great beer selection but service is way too slow and they don't care. That may work on Friday night when you want people to linger, but at 12 on a Tuesday people need to get back to work. UA staff gets an hour for lunch, I once took my office there and got in trouble because it took us 1.5 hours to get back. Not good!

Re: “Diablo Burger

Local, grass-fed and so on. Their room is boring, the seating unusual, and the food tastes pretty much like you average premium burger. Fries did not impress either. Four of us found no reason to return. Two of us had a glass of wine, the size of each pour varied greatly.

Re: “The Hungry Fox Restaurant and Country Store

I like the place, breakfasts are great but the last time I ordered keilbasa and eggs, it was prepared just fine and served well but I think though they could at least go with Hillshire farms keilbasa instead of a split Bar-S economy Polish.

Re: “Dragon Village Restaurant

Food was just so-so, kinda greasy. They sit a cart of fried rice and other foods right outside the bathroom door off the kitchen, County Health Department would have a fit if they saw that for sure. Very polite and good service but have had better food.

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!

Re: “El Charro Café Sahuarita

Nothing wrong with it being in Sahuarita...we need more sit down places to eat. I was thrilled to hear they were coming to Sahuarita. Hubby works at the PCC campus downtown and he and some of his instructers go to the original El Charros from time to time and he is always talking about it. I was a bit dissappointed, the tables were to close together. The food is so so...although I do like the original taco...they are made like I was taught to make the...beef patty and tortilla are fried together...they can keep their lettuce salad topping. I prefer shredded lettuce onions , tomatoes and cheese for my toppings..not a salad mixture with peas ans radishes. We have visited three times...I prefer Manuels local Mexican resturant. Sure would love to see and Italian or seafood eateries here in Sahuarita.

Re: “New Delhi Palace

New management and maybe chefs. Not as good as in the past.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

These places could use a good scrubbing, but must be ok with
the health department. Have been to Luke's on Ft Lowell as well
as the one on Grant. Big difference in the amount of meat put onto
the sandwiches. Ft. Lowell site knows how to load up the bun,
much more stingy at the Grant location. The Italian Beef is
fantastic!!

Re: “Amereno's Little Italy

A bit on the pricey side with above average food. The service was outstanding and a nice clean atmosphere. The Veal dish that I had was Good (but a tiny bit salty) and the Sauce on the Spaggetti tasted like it was from a can.
This place is a nice date place with a nice romantic setting.

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: “Elle Wine Bistro

Okay but the food was underwhelming. When we went the waitstaff seemed to lack training. Lighting and table location was odd.

Re: “La Cocina de Gabby

Not fancy but with really well made food. The menu is limited, which in this case, is good, as every thing is home/scratch made. Service is very freindly albeit bit slow, but after a Margarita or two, who cares. This could become a very nice neighborood cantina.

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

Friendly servers but other than that we really weren't impressed with the food. Having lived back east we had great dogs and deli food. Want a really great hot dog? Try a simple Sabrret, Coney Island or Nathan's dog with just a few of the standard toppings. This way you'll actually be able to taste the product. Jalapenos, pickles, mayo... Forget it!

In any case, I wish the business well. However, even with the new on/off ramp now being open the location is unlikely to draw lots of patrons. Let's hope their lease is reasonable. As a former business owner, I know all too well how many hands, (taxes, worker's comp., electric bill, etc..), are in your pocket every month. It's tuff making it.

Re: “El Charro Café on Broadway

I only gave them three stars, because they put cheese in their guacamole! It is always a sign of bad guacamole when restaurants/suppliers try to stretch out their guac with cheese or sour cream. A little more authenticity would go a long way!

Re: “Lovin' Spoonfuls Vegetarian Restaurant

Hello Nate1980, While your intent may be good, you apparently either have too much free time, or you're a frustrated writer. By the way, you do write well. In any case, one or two-liner comments are usually adequate to express one's take on a restaurant experience. For example. Bottom Line: Every time we come to restaurant X the service is awful, but we like the food. Unless one is an exceptional and unbiased writer, multiply paragraph rates have virtually no place here, in my meaningless view.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

We like the meatball subs. Really tangy red sauce. In fact, so tangy (acidic) you may find yourself reaching for the tums afterwards. Our only gripe is that a meatball sandwich should come with cheese. Come on Luke. Meatball parmigiana!
