Re: “Mad Mario's Italian Deli

Try it for Hot or Cold Sandwiches, Hot Italian entrees, even salads - this food rocks!
Careful, if you order the Chicken Parm sandwich... You'll start craving this place and be back again & again!

My favorite secret menu item - A Tuna Sandwich on a TOASTED roll. Trust me...

Re: “Boca

We went on a Friday night, there was only one person working and he had four sets of customers waiting. So the service was lacking a bit. I didn't take away any stars for this for two reasons. One, he let us know he had to send the other person working with him home that night because he was too sick to be working. Not his fault. And two, the food was so darn good, we didn't even care that the service was a tad bit slow. We ordered Carne Asada tacos, Camaron (beer battered) tacos, the Mar y Tierra (Surf and Turf) tacos and the Ranchero Style Whole Pinto Beans. Everything was made to order so when we got them they were still sizzling from the grill. Wow, were we blown away! They use rib eye and fresh shrimp for the Mar y Tierra with a drizzle of mustard on top. I am obsessed with this one and wanted to go back the next day to see if I was dreaming about it or if was truly one of the best tasting tacos I ever tasted, it was! The batter on the shrimp was very light, crispy, tasty and complemented the shrimp perfectly. The salsas served were delicious too.

Everything was fresh and the quality of the meat and shrimp made a huge difference in the flavor and experience. I've eaten at alot of taquerias in this town, this place is now my Numero Uno!

Re: “Risky Business

The servers are very attentive and the food is consistent and very good. It is a wonderful locally owned spot where we grab a quick meal once a week.

Re: “Texas Roadhouse

We love to eat out, but seeking a decent place to patronize is hard to find. Texas Roadhouse has become our favorite spot to eat. The food is great, including the blackened salmon. The sincere, friendly service is a major reasonwhy we keep coming back. It does get very busy, so when it is just the two of us we saddle up to the bar and order from Dave who takes care of our dining pleasure. Bottom line... good deal, great food, awesome service!

Re: “BrushFire BBQ Co.

I am addicted to the messy fries, and smoked turkey sandwiches and the wings. And I agree with the dude above me the salmon is AMAZING.

Re: “Delectables Restaurant and Catering

I was recently in town for a week of work and ate at Delectables many times. It was perfect. The food was fresh, the wine was exceptional, the service was knowledgeable and friendly. I took friends there for Easter Brunch and it was impeccable. I can't wait to go there again!

Re: “Maynards Market and Kitchen

Their pizzas are fabulous, and you can also make a whole meal of their fun side dishes. The space is noisy and long, like a box car, which is fitting since while you eat the trains roll by (Maynards is at the railway station). Great patio scene as well.

Re: “San Carlos Mexican Grill

Awesome Tacos. Homemade shells that were light and crisp. Lots of refills of chips and salsa. Chili Rellenos not too much batter and fresh tasting.

Re: “Maynards Market and Kitchen

I am obsessed with the fresh blueberry muffins they sell in the market. With tons of sugar on top they are definitely the best in Tucson and definitely not from Costco. The soups are phenomenal, like the clam chowder I cant stop thinking about when I'm at work. I only wish they would sell it everyday but it changes all the time. Go and get some fresh sourdough too it amazing. Thumbs up to maynards for many delicious lunches!!

Re: “Epic Café

I have been patronizing Epic Cafe for nearly ten years, since first moving to Tucson. Epic Cafe is my all-time favorite cafe in this town. Why? Ah, to begin with, the food is all absolutely excellent. All in their deli case is homemade, all desserts, muffins, soups and so much more as well. I have never once experienced food poisoning or become ill after dining there.

As well as great homemade foods, the people who go to Epic range from all over the diverse spectrum of lifestyles.

Sitting outside the Epic Cafe offers people-watching on 4th Avenue, and this activity is one of my personal favorites. Every character, every person stopping by or passing by has something interesting to say...or to see, from philosophy, ranting, humor...to style of attire.

Overall, Epic Cafe is a fabulous place!

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

I've always had fantastic food here, and find the service timely, friendly, in fact, extraordinary. And the prices are not at all expensive. The people who run this place are the best! The food is glorious. Noisy . . . ok, but not beyond a lot of restaurants. It's one of Tucson truly unique treasures. We take our local friends and our out-of-town guests here with pleasure.

Re: “Panda Buffet and Sushi

Great Sushi for the price. Other hot Chinese dishes are very good as well. China A super Buffet on River road and Stone Road also deserves 5 stars. The new U Like Buffet on Wilmont just south of Broadway is just terrible thou.

Re: “Pho 88

The best pho in town that I've had and we're always treated well. The other dishes that I've tried were also good, which were mostly more Chinese style dishes that tend to work well for our kids.

Best dim sum in town. Not $ as advertised. More like $$-$$$. But here, you get more than you pay for.
