We are done with Chili's. It has lost its appeal from a time when service was prompt and the food was hot. Our server apologized from not having the food we ordered (they were out of stock) to having to wait for them to find green peppers for our fajita, then not bringing any out. Rice and broccili cold, steak not even close to being the right temperature. It wasn't even busy, so running out of food, slow apologetic service, and undercooked cold food is inexcusable. Chili's best days are very much behind them
Now closed according to the AZDS:
Went here for dinner after a show and after we paid our bill we were asked to leave becuase they had a reservaton for our table even though there were open tables. we told the hostess we were staying for the jazz and she left. a few minutes later, the owner came to our table and asked if the hostess explained that the table was needed for reservations (we made reservations too). when we asked about the open tables, she said that we have overstayed our reservation and kept reminding us what time our reservations were for. For 3 of us, the bill, with tip, came to $170 so it wasnt like we dropped only $10. As we were rising from the table, the owner continued to berate us about overstaying our welcome and insisted that we "need to understand" that you can't stay for jazz at 7:30 for a 4:30 reservation. My friend said she didn't need to understand anything becuase she would not be returning and shockingly, the owner said good, don't come back. We were so embarrased to be asked to leave a restaurant. we are 3 professional women who went after the show at the TCC so it wasn't like we were college kids acting rowdy. The owner actually followed us out into the street continuing to explain her reason for asking us to leave. The way the owner should have acted was to explain to us that they had reservations waiting and offer to move us to the bar and even offer to buy a drink for our troubles (although we would have declined a free drink becuase we had already had 2 glasses with dinner). I am simply amazed that the owner and hostess asked us to leave instead of offering to relocate us. I will never return and I will make sure to spread the word to avoid this place.
The smallest frog legs i have seen they had to be the front legs
Excellent food, Tucson best breakfasts. Don't miss the chiliquilas. Dinners are also tasty and varied. Even outside tables. Best on the east side of town.
Mediocre at best. I've tried it several times over many years, never a good meal. Always expensive and lousy service.
Best in Tucson and perhaps Arizona. Prices are good, portions are large and the food is excellent.
Food has taken quite a decline. Very disappointing.
Food is no longer fresh and steaks are not longer premium grade.
Great place for a steak!!! Fabulous food & atmosphere with live music on the weekends.
Worst steak I have ever had in a restaurant. Supposedly prime meat? You can do better at Costco. Don't know where they get their meat. At least they took the 36$ price off the tab. Service was actually good. Decor is a bit gauche, especially for Tucson, which isn't impressed by ostentation.
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?!
My favorite restaurant in Tucson! Every dish I've had there has been amazing. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options too!
I have been to nimus about 4 times each time I go I order the same salad, the chicken pear salad. Each time IT have ordered it ,it has been different. Either it"s chunk chicken or cubed. It no nuts or 4 nuts or a lot . It needs to be the same all the time. Please ask chef to be on point with food
The porter won a gold medal at the Great American Beer fest (best porter in america)....sounds like Reuven needs to wash his palate.
The guys and I eat breakfast at Mosaic at least once a month. The food is always excellent, the service almost always good, and the beer cold. Most of us have been eating at the Mosaic for decades and will continue to for hopefully many more years. We appreciate the warm greetings we get from the owner and his family. The Mosaic is very much Tucson.
This was my wife and my first evening out in Tucson and it DID NOT disappoint. Everything written above proved to be true: intimate, excellent service and a bargain. I LOVE, I mean LOVE mussels. Sitting at the bar, a GREAT glass of white, professional wait staff and a steaming, aromatic bowl of mussels was just what a stranger in a strange land required - home. The Rumrunner was also an experience worth revisiting with an excellent selection second to none. The Friday bar special made it all the more affordable. Go, you’l enjoy.
I can not think of a better Med place except an Egyptian joint in Santa Fe. Very generous portions (as it should always be in the mid-east) lovely flavor profiles and yes, the BEST falaffel in town, crunchy on the outside, soft and moist on the inside. AMAZING house-made potatoes. My only complaint would be that the desert cart is almost bare.
This could have it all. For a lonely boy looking for chile with an ‘e’ this place comes so close. Just not bold enough with the what we New Mexicans need to wake up our old decrepit bodies on a cold winter’s day. Having said that, it’s still the BEST (and maybe ONLY) place for New Mexican food in town. Once you go, you’l never go back to that Sonoran sludge of too much of everything except flavor that’s called Mexican food in Tucson. Yes, totally biased - and spoiled.
