Re: “La Cocina de Gabby

I just saw the film "Spinning Plates" that features La Cocina de Gabby. I was very touched by their beautiful and sad story.

The director has created a web site for strangers to help Antonio, Gabby and Ashley, if they wish.

I truly believe that American is the land of opportunity, but also of generous hearts.

Re: “La Fresita

(I’m waiting in line behind a woman speaking on her cellphone in another language. Ahead of her is a white man. After the woman hangs up, he speaks up.)

Man: “I didn’t want to say anything while you were on the phone, but you’re in America now. You need to speak English.”

Woman: “Excuse me?”

Man: *very slow* “If you want to speak Mexican, go back to Mexico. In America, we speak English.”

Woman: “Sir, I was speaking Navajo. If you want to speak English, go back to England.”

Re: “Saing Thai Cusine

The curry chicken is the best I have had in a long time! Superfriendly service and the price is fair as well!

Re: “Don's Bayou Cajun Cookin'

My husband and I are fairly regular customers at Don's Bayou because we love the good food and pleasant chats with the owners, Don and Teresa. They're such nice people and make us feel welcome as soon as we come in the door. Lately we've been going in on weekend mornings before noon when they serve large mugs of rich coffee (freshly brewed by the cup) and beignets (kind of like a doughnut: a square of fried dough eaten hot and sprinkled with powdered sugar). I know they're adding freshly-cut fruit to their weekend morning menu, too. We haven't tried it yet but intend to do so. The weather has been so beautiful, so we've been enjoying this weekend treat on the patio overlooking the garden area and the Catalinas.

None of their food, much of it deep-fried, is particularly good for the waistline, to which we can personally attest because we can't resist! One of our favorite entree items is the shrimp po'boy. It's plenty spicy with either remoulade or shrimp cocktail sauce , and oh so good! We also love the really thinly sliced, vinegary cabbage coleslaw. The food tends to be expensive, but really fresh seafood IS expensive, even on the coast. The fresh crayfish boil is wonderful and wonderfully messy. It's not always available, so we "liked" Don's on Facebook so we'll be alerted when the high quality crayfish have shipped in. There's a beer on tap that we really like called Andy-Gator. It has a higher alcohol content than normal, and is what we were looking for in a good brew to go with our spicy meals.The only thing we didn't care for were the fries, but who needs them?

This place deserves to be supported by happy, well-fed customers!

Re: “Café 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: “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: “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: “Hooters

food is disgusting, bar is more limited than your grand dad's liquor cabinet, and it is an obvious chain... BUT WHO CARES!

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: “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: “The Hog Pit Smokehouse Bar and Grill

Good to see the Hog Pit getting some good reviews, this place has great BBQ. I've had the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, the ribs, and also the chicken. The meats are always tender and juicy, the rub they put on the slabs is great, as are the 3 homemade sauces (mild, med, hot). Sides are excellent too - slaw, cornbread, very tasty beans. Owners are very friendly, good selection of beers, plus sweet tea. Nice place, the pit master knows his stuff, check it out!

Re: “The Eclectic Café

Excellent food, Tucson best breakfasts. Don't miss the chiliquilas. Dinners are also tasty and varied. Even outside tables. Best on the east side of town.

Re: “Ba-Dar Chinese Restaurant

Best in Tucson and perhaps Arizona. Prices are good, portions are large and the food is excellent.

Re: “La Cocina Restaurant, Cantina and Coffee Bar

La Cocina has great food whether you want a nibble or a meal. La Cocina is in the courtyard of the beautiful Old Town Artisans of Presidio Barrio. La Cocina has a great assortment of live music. What else could there be?!
