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!
THE BEST green chili in town!
I agree with the last comment. Horrible experience the last time I was having dinner outside. The silverware was dirty, and I saw a cockaroach lying on it's back underneath the next table. I informed those in charge, and no action seemed to be taken. Wonder what the kitchen is full of
Yeah the food is good... when you get it! The service is ridiculous!! I guess quality service isn't what it used to be to say the least. I waited an hour for 2 measly tacos, and asked to speak to the manager. He didn't care one bit. Luckily my server did, and even commented that she would've done the same thing. The manager is a coward and an idiot. I refuse to go back!! It's cheap food so I guess it's expected that they don't care either... enjoy!
the restaurant is gorgeous. the food is mediocre. located in sahuarita.
I actually drove down to this location to meet a friend. We had lunch. Bottom line is that regardless of their location the food is sincerely crappy. Menu items have a very precooked, processed, heat and serve quality to them. Not good. The service at this location was real slow also. Had we gone to Jerry Bobs which is in the same plaza we could have had an equally disappointing truck stop like meal.
I lived in Tucson for 38 years, I ate at Michas at least once a week for many of those years. The best breakfasts, best Chimichangas, best machaca in town. I left Tucson five years ago and one for the things I miss most is Machaca and Eggs at Michas.
About a year ago I made a brief visit to the Old Pueblo, Michas was still there, the food still good and now I miss it even more.
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!
Maria Bonita on Oracle has closed. We are disappointed as it was our favorite Mexican food restaurant. Anyone at Tucson Weekly know why? Thank you.
I love this place! Great food (had the fajitas, burros, seafood). Servings are large - I am able to take 1/2 home for lunch next day. Great beans. Good Margaritas. (Happy hour they are only $3!) Women will make salsa at your table - free, but they have a basket for donations.
It is one of the few restaurants in Tucson I will wait for a seat to open up. (FYI...not many around. Since Tucson is so blessed with so many great restaurants we can usually find one with no wait, even on weekends.)
I started eating at Micha's MANY years ago -- before the bar and extra seating were added to accomodate patrons of this Tucson gem of Norteno Cuisine -- in a pleasant, economic and unpretentious setting.
When I say many yeaqrs ago -- I mean when I was editing newspapers that required me to be at a printing plant in South Tucson early in the morning -- so I would hit Micha's for some of the best Machaca and Eggs and/or Chorizo and eggs at the no longer extant breakfast counter with other journalists who used the counter as an informal answer to press club hangovers.
Most often lately as a retired persopn I get there for lunches when I go to the nearby VA hospital. The Machaca is still the most exceptional have had in my 69 years -- and their Albondigas is a tradition. It is almost impossible for a npormal person to finish their tasty Burros -- and their Chimis are always crisp and lite.
AND -- it is a family restaurant -- with prices moderate to low for the family. THE OTHER SIDE OF THE EQUATION -- is that the same family that established Michas is the same family (second and third generation) the runs it today. The wait staff DOES NOT MAKE YOU WAIT. Fast, attentive and efficient -- some of these folks have been working at Michas for more years that I can remember --- and have waited on me literally hundreds of times over the years.
BE AWARE -- that on Fridays there is sometimes a short wait to get a table for lunch -- but once inside everything makes up for the very few minute delay.
The chocolate cake and the views is enough to keep you going back... and the food is good too!
In a word, crap. Seriously! I have nothing positive to say. Everything tastes like day-old leftovers. Nothing is fresh.
CaliMan is insane, he's just pissed because he works for another store down the street (yes, we know who you are). Sir Veza's is a great place to eat for everyone! High quality, low prices, clean and family friendly.
This food is goooood! Excellent flavors, homey feel. Fun art interior.
Great old time Tucson place. Best Mexican chorizo I've ever had!
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.
I love this little place. The chile rellenos are excellent. The soups, filling and tasty, are served with a choice of corn/flour tortillas. It's a family run business [no, I'm not part of the family]. I've been so often that I know them, tho! The pan dulces can be taken home and so can the soups. When you sit in the small dining area you are down in Mexico, as the lovely mural fills the wall with rural scences that include an active volcanco.
Zivaz's ambiance mirrors Sauce and Pei Wei -esk bright plastic, colorful, cafeteria-style. The food is overpriced and over-sauced. Salmon salad is mediocre, but fish is often overcooked. Several vegetarian options. I wanted to like this locally owned restaurant, but the best thing I can say about it is that their green salsa is tasty.
Wonderful Home Cooking, what more can you ask for. I first stopped here when I wasn't a resident now after 13 years of living here, this is still our favorite family Mexican spot. Great Chip and Salsa to start, Frosty Mugs for Beers, silky sauces, and too many more. We have never had a bad meal, on occasion the service is tardy when they are busy but always good to great food offerings.
