Re: “La Indita

I love La Indita! The food is fabulous and the prices can't be beat! Before I was a vegetarian my favorites were the chicken mole and green chicken enchiladas. Their mole is perfectly spiced and not too sweet, and their chicken is on the bone, rather than shredded, and always juicy and tender. Their green enchilada sauce is truely unique, creamy and rich. Now that I don't eat chicken, I enjoy their chili rellenos, mushroom enchilada, and potato tacos. They can even make your food Vegan! I encourage all weekly readers to eat here often. Their weekly lunch specials are $6 and come with rice and beans.

Re: “El Minuto Café

For nearly 30 years, I have had an office in the neighborhood of El Minuto, and have tried just about everything on the menu. Its all consistently good, and the service cannot be beaten. I especially like the carne seca and their basic salsa, which are as good as anywhere else in town.

Re: “BrushFire BBQ Co.

Having tasted everything on the menu including all of the sides, this is as good of quality bbq you will find in town. Ample portions, melt in your mouth brisket, great turkey, and their salmon is terrific.

Re: “Ha Long Bay

Consistently great food. Be it the Pho or any of the other choices from the menu. Have not found anywhere else which comes close in Tucson.

Re: “Frankie's South Philly Cheesesteaks

Unless you are going to Philly to eat at Geno's or Pat's, handsdown Frankie's is the best and most authentic you will find outside of the Philly area. Yes, the rolls make a huge difference.

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

Fabulous! And fun for the whole family. Burgers, dogs, sandwiches, best fries ever. I've ended up here even when I'm not exactly around the corner. It's one of those places you'll return to again and again. Prices are reasonable and portions are generous.

Re: “Viro's Italian Bakery and Cafe

I ate there many times for lunch when I worked across the street. The food was always fresh and delicious. The Italian cookies were incredible as well.

Re: “The Original Mr. K's BBQ

The best BBQ restaurant in our region. Sadly, it is constantly overlooked due to its location (although it's location is specific because of the adjoining museum - also underestimated). The moment you are in the parking lot, you are teased with an aroma that hints at the awaiting flavor. You will only regret not being able to finish your plate.

Re: “Time Market

Good food, usuaully quick service, and a great price. I eat there at least once a week, sometimes more. Highly recommend the breakfast burritos, especially if you have never had one before. They are delicious.

Re: “Fusion Wasabi

Love Fusion Wasabi! Their side salad is very tasty. It was some sort of secret Ginger dressing that they won't give details about... They won't sell any either. Their sushi is awesome! I would definetely reccommend this place.

Re: “1702

In an age of instant gratification, often with sub-par quality, it's refreshing to know a place like 1702 is around. Feeling a monster appetite coming on? Leisurely enjoy any of the 50 rotating beers on tap while awaiting your freshly made custom slice of pizza. Yes, it will take more than 5 minutes, but quality takes time. Best pizza in town and a beer for every pallet.

Re: “Tino's Pizza

Killer pies, a bit pricy but you are getting the best in town, maybe the whole state.
Delicious crust, great sauce.

Re: “C. I. Chu's Mongolian Barbecue

Bar far the best Mongolian Grill I have been too (I travel a lot). They serve the correct noodles for a mongolian bbq (some restaurants serve spaghetti noodles), veggies are fresh, good choice of meat, bowl size is perfect, sauce selection is great, and the customer service and cleanliness of the restaurant is a plus.

Re: “La Botana Taco Grill and Cantina

they got the best Chicharrones on flour tacos in town. The Queso Fundito with extra chorizo and mushrooms while waiting for the tacos is pretty good too.
Then..... their Flan!!!!

Re: “Inca's Peruvian Cuisine

Incas is one of the best kept secrets in town. The dining experience is unusual thanks to several special touches. First, the food itself is delicious and I have learned from my Peruvian friends, very authentic. The menu is varied -- from chicken to fish to seafood to a variety of high quality, certified meats. The rice is made with a secret ingredient that could be sold for millions. The salads and side dishes (and fries!) are superb. And the deserts are to die for. The proprietors, Fatima and Luis Campos, are the key to making Incas more than just a restaurant. They are kind, and quite simply, they care about your dining experience. For me, the sign of a quality restaurant is that the owners develop a relationship with the customers. It makes the food taste even better! Finally, the service is competent, but not rushed. If you want to sit and talk over a fine Peruvian wine, you are welcome to do so. Incas is a must if you care about fine dining in Tucson. Frankly, we are lucky to have Incas as part of our local culture! There are alternatives, of course. You could simply fly to Lima!
