Re: “Teresa's Mosaic Café

Teresa's is the only decent restaurant in a 5-mile radius from home -- and I eat there weekly. The service is great, the food is well-prepared and the platinum margarita's are delicious. Varied specials are always good. Peak evenings in the winter months can mean a 20-30 minute wait. Fortunately, platinum margaritas are available to help you while away the time.

Re: “Crossroads Restaurant Drive In

I was pleasantly surprised with the food here. I was put off by the whole drive thru thing but truth be told, a delicious mexican resturant that does authentic sea food and a six pack of negro modello though a window?!?! You can't beat that shit!! Plus sitting and eating was nice as well.

Re: “El Sur

Nice place, old time Tucson feel. Really like that they have full menu from the time they open. Great old fashioned patty tacos.

Re: “Lerua's

One of the top Mexican restaruants in town, I've been eating there for 40 years. Best chimi by far (not the grease bombs you find elsewhere) Everyone knows the green corn tamales are the best anywhere.Fond, fond memories of eating there during H.S. (THS) With my buddies.

Re: “Macayo's

The food here is not as good as La Parrilla Suiza, but is good and has a yummy dessert menu. The service is 9/10 times very good.

Re: “Birría Guadalajara

Tasty and affordable, but never ask them to make something that is not strictly on the menu, like put potatoes into a breakfast burrito. They give you nasty looks and cook it the way they want to, i.e. potatoes were served on the side.

Re: “El Charro Café Sahuarita

Nothing wrong with it being in Sahuarita...we need more sit down places to eat. I was thrilled to hear they were coming to Sahuarita. Hubby works at the PCC campus downtown and he and some of his instructers go to the original El Charros from time to time and he is always talking about it. I was a bit dissappointed, the tables were to close together. The food is so so...although I do like the original taco...they are made like I was taught to make the...beef patty and tortilla are fried together...they can keep their lettuce salad topping. I prefer shredded lettuce onions , tomatoes and cheese for my toppings..not a salad mixture with peas ans radishes. We have visited three times...I prefer Manuels local Mexican resturant. Sure would love to see and Italian or seafood eateries here in Sahuarita.

Re: “La Cocina de Gabby

Not fancy but with really well made food. The menu is limited, which in this case, is good, as every thing is home/scratch made. Service is very freindly albeit bit slow, but after a Margarita or two, who cares. This could become a very nice neighborood cantina.

Re: “El Charro Café on Broadway

I only gave them three stars, because they put cheese in their guacamole! It is always a sign of bad guacamole when restaurants/suppliers try to stretch out their guac with cheese or sour cream. A little more authenticity would go a long way!

Re: “Taqueria Pico de Gallo

LOVE their food, mediocre rating due to slow service and when they run out of something, you don't know until you don't get your food.

Re: “Guadalajara Grill West

Our first couple of times we were impressed and found a new favorite for Mexican food in Tucson. Since the move to the new location we've been there twice and were disappointed each time. Once chips were brought to our table soggy! and I had a Carne Asada steak brought to me raw! Too big too fast?

Re: “La Parrilla Suiza

The food is pretty good here. It is a little different then the typical taco and burrito fare. They have some different items that are worth trying. Decent service. Prices could be cheaper though.

Re: “Teresa's Mosaic Café

I just do not get this places' popularity. THe owner has an attitude having taken over from his parents, the service is only fair and the portions very small. Its only because of the fact that there are so few restaurants on this end of town that this place stays busy.

Re: “Sir Veza's Taco Garage Speedway

We tried it because we were getting hungry and wanted to eat something before shopping at Sunflower Market. Overall we weren't impressed. Sorta ugly building, very average food, slow service. Now we now better.

Re: “Guadalajara Grill West

Pros: Chips and salsa are good. Cons: The meats they serve, chicken, pork, and beef are of somewhat low quality. We went to Guadalajara Grill two times. First time I had their chicken mole dish. Not good at all. The chicken they used for this dish was obviously strips of the frozen variety. Honestly, the chicken reminded me of the same stuff that's on a fast food salad from McDonald's. The mole sauce? Terrible. The next time, and last time we went, I had carnitas. The meat just didn't have a good fresh taste. Oh well!

Re: “La Placita Café

Disappointing food. I ordered the mimi chimichangas. They came out looking like little chinese egg rolls and were not so good. I forget what my wife order but she said it wasn't all that good either. There is a La Placita in Green Valley (no affiliation) that is always good whenever we go.

Re: “Mi Nidito

The best part dining here are the frozen Margaritas. The food does not merit the wait, not much different than street fare.

Re: “El Charro Café on Oracle

A disappointment. Major problem with portion control. The famous carne seca platter came with a 1/4 - 1/3 pound portion of beef not the 1/2 pound as listed on the menu and the sides have also shrunk. The pozole stew was too much broth.

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

Will never patronize this restaurant ever again!. They wouldn't accept a $100 gift certificate. We received it as a gift from some grateful friends, but management wouldn't honor it. WHY NOT? It's equivalent to us having paid for our meal in advance. Definitely not a sound business approach for endearing themselves to their customers.
