I've been fortunate enough to have eaten at Amereno's Little Italy at their old location and the new one and have never been disappointed by the food, service or atmosphere! The Grant Road location is beautifully decorated and the food is as good as ever! I had a bunch of friend's meet me for happy hour recently and thy all raved about the food! The special was seafood in cream sauce with an abundance of fresh seafood the sauce was creamy and velvety! Our server grated cheese at the table for those who wanted some, I didn't ask what kind of cheese it was but it wasn't from a can! The pasta was al-dente and priced right! The clams and mussels are fresh and not over cooked! Great wine list and friendly servers! What more could you ask for? I would (and have) recommended Amereno's for really good authentic Italian food!
I can honestly say that I have eaten at EVERY Indian food joint in Tucson and the food here is on par with the best of them. What makes this place different is that it is clean. My other favorite place has food that is just as good, but I worry what happens behind the scenes in the kitchen.
Always Good, always on time, great food. Best Lamb Shank in town by far.....!
Roma is a hidden gem that offers a diverse lunch menu as well as fresh deli items, frozen Italian foods such as lasagnes, sausages and raviolis, and a variety of Italian grocery items. Everything we have even had at Roma is excellent and they also do catering. Highly recommended!! Location is funky (behind Cox building off of Campbell), but once you find it you will keep going back.
The best DIY restaurant in town. I am a vegetarian and truly love the freshness of ingredients and the wide variety of items to put in your salad. I do not have a favorite here, as I can order on a whim.
When you walk in the door, there's a card/menu - somewhat like a sushi menu. You check off the items you would like in your salad - the types of greens, veggies, if you want cheese, nuts, proteins and the type of dressing you would like. They offer various options in dressings - including some low-fat.
The price is right and the atmosphere is sunny. My daughter and I enjoy lunch there often.
A very comfortable and quiet setting, with the freshest ingredients. I am a vegetarian and ordered the sweet corn and green chile custard braised spinach, butternut squash puree, grilled asparagus, portabella mushroom, eggplant, baby broccoli, zucchini and fire roasted sweet peppers…for $26. - the custard was like a green corn tamale. Exquisite. The mountain of vegetables were filling and hearty - I was unable to finish the entire dish.
My husband is an omnivore and he ordered the pollo a la brasa (peruvian chicken) char broiled half chicken, oaxacan risotto, steamed garden vegetables, also for $26. He would like to suck up to the chef to get the recipe for the marinade. Delicious.
I don't know what those first two comments are about. The burgers are delicioso and delectable. The blue cheese/bacon combo, and the gloriously messy mac-n-cheese burger, are the best Tucson has got to offer. The onion rings rock and the tap beer is cheap. What more could you want?
On a whim, today I went through the drive-thru and ordered the smoked pork, green beans, and potato. The meat was tender and flavorful, and the sides and BBQ sauce were tasty too. It's nice to find good barbeque in Tucson!
Great Food! Great Service! The Baja Sauce is to die for!!!!!!
RA is actually the best Sushi in Tucson. You get what you pay for, and none of the other Sushi restaurants can compare. Especially not Sushi Garden, YUCK! Cool atmosphere, and they really do have awesome specials during thier happy hour!
The ONLY real Pizza in Tucson! Just like the east coast. Love it!!!
Our favorite restaurant in Tucson. Really excellent and imaginative food, in a terrific space. Doug Levy is a fantastic chef, and a warm and friendly host.
Hands down, the best, most friendly and flavorful Chinese cookery to be found in the greater Tucson area. Mary, the proprietor is a jack of all trades and Master of ALL. She handles front of house, waitstafffing and can throw down a mean fried rice too! Most of the other Chinese eateries offer dumbed down, bland food. Not so at Dragon village. Instead, you can smell the amazing aromas of sesame, hoisin and hot chillies from a block away. The tell tale sign of proper chinese cookery is how they do with won-ton soup. DV's soup is seasoned correctly and the wontons are light and succulent...not the weapons-grade taffy-goo found at other Tucson restaurants.
mary and the Dragon Village team do it right!
I found Saffron to be representative of proper Indian cookery. Admittedly, the buffet was OK, being aimed at an inquisitive, yet, uninitiated visitors. The real treats, however, are to be found by ordering off of the menu. Saffron's lamb Korma took me back to the days of watching my Mom and Grandma cooking Indian-inspired Indonesian fare. The smells of garlic, tumeric, bay, lemon grass and varied curries wafting from the kitchen was borderline intoxicating. Saffron's Owner and Kitchen staff know what they are doing.
This is one of my favorite Tucson restaurants. The food is great and consistent. The curries are excellent. The service is always friendly even when it's really busy. The atmosphere is nice too. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and take guests here when they visit.
BEST FOOD, BEST SERVICE, BEST PRICE. All the people that rave about Gandhi's either don't know indian cuisine, or they haven't eaten at Sher-E-Punjab.....leaps and bounds above the rest in town.
Eat here! Service was excellent. Very attentive and quick. Bread warm and crunchy-Spicy shrimp appetizer just spicy enough; should have had an even number of shrimp because we shared. Nice sauce. Both of us had salads with dinner; creamy Grogonzola dressing jammed with nice cheese chunks. He had the shrimp special: excellent, cheese melted on a pasta dish and very creamy. I had linguine aglio e olio: lots and lots of garlic, just the way I like it. Romano cheese grated over all, who needs Parmesan? Good wine specials too. I like this place and Jewell can get her Parmesan somewhere else if she can't live without it! ps good music though I wanted more opera!
Absolutely the best Philly cheesesteak in the area. Try one with the cheese-whiz on it. Frankie himself recommended it (along with the garlic option) ... and it was FABULOUS! We stop there now on the way to the Univ of Arizona football games to pick up a couple of cheesesteaks to take along. Frankie's is well worth the experience!
Best homemade Italian food I have ever had!!! Friendly owners that come out and greet you and make you feel like family! Wonderful environment that also makes you feel like you are in a little Caffe in Italy! I love this Resturant!
This is a great place to have a paradise experience. They service unique drinks and Polynesian food. This is the famous place that has the Scorpion drink servered in a fish bowl. You have to go on your 21st birthday don't miss out on your experience of the Scorpion.
