Unique menu, fantastic patio, great bar with live jazz on Saturdays and Sundays, excellent beer selection, caring staff... unique to Tucson - a must try!
This is a great place to hear very good jazz. The performers are students and you will be stunned to find out how young they are when you hear their music. They are very polished and really know how to swing. The performances are in the outdoor patio by the pool which contains a fire pit. It's a great way to spend an evening.
J-Bar is one of the standards that out-of-town visitors to my business are taken. It's a Tucson original. The food is consistently good and inventive. I'm not sure what another reviewer is talking about, regarding spiciness. Yes, many plates are spicier than the average member of the retirement set might like, but that's honestly why we go there. One gets tired of the bland food that the snowbirds have caused restaurants to serve. But also, there are plenty of dishes that are not hot. They might be spicy, but that's not the same as hot.
For the record, though, the jalapeno chocolate ice cream is reason enough to go there.
This was our first time in Hifalutin. My husband and I went on recommendations from some of our friends. We went on a Thursday night and the place was packed. There was a 20 minute wait. We were surprised that they took reservations. We will know for next time. There was some room at the bar so we decided to have a drink. We were quickly greeted by the bartender. She said that they had the best margaritas. So we gave them a shot. They were refreshing, delicious and packed a punch. No lemonade flavored margaritas here. We sat about 15 minutes later at a small table in the patio warmed with heaters. Glad we were sat outside because the noise level inside was a bit too loud for our likes. We started with the cheese crisp, half beef and half chicken on the servers recommendation. It was a good one. The server also dropped off some delectable little muffins. My husband ordered a filet med-rare and I opted for the tomato basil pasta. His steak was cooked to perfection and was very tender. My tomato basil pasta was flavorful and the perfect size. I would highly recommend this to everyone. Comfortable atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff and fair prices. We can't wait to return.
This place is a must! Exceptional food, great value, wonderful atmosphere and the staff does and excellant job!
Truely a fabulous experience.
