Re: “Guadalajara Grill West

I'm "visiting" Tucson while my husband prepares for a heart transplant and today was my birthday. I'm originally from Phoenix area and my husband knew I was missing various celebrations from friends and co-workers. He bid me go and find the best take-out in Tucson to enjoy back in the hospital room. The nurses on the cardiac floor recommended Guadalajaras. I easily found the location and headed in for take-out. Upon entering, I was overwhelmingly welcomed. Several staff recommended various dishes and were a delight in helping me choose. They escorted me to the bar for a fabulous margarita while I waited and even had the salsa prepared in front of me - apparently not normally done for take-out. Upon return to the hospital, to my surprise they had tucked in a fabulous piece of chocolate cake within a festively hand-decorated to go box. What a treat!!!! Who needs celebrations in Phoenix -- head to a charming place with fantastic food and caring service!! Number 1 in my book!

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

I and my aspiring-chef son love this place. The food is awesome, the drinks are awesome. Lots and lots of flavor. Yeah the service is fast and you may be lucky enough to get a big hug or a kiss on the mouth....what's wrong with that?!

Re: “Gio Taco

The Metzger is excellent. It was my favorite of the 3 specialty tacos. Served with au jus? Creative. Although it was plain as day, I had to ask what it was because it was a surprise to see it accompany a taco. Don't dip it, just dump it on top.

Time your visit for 645pm on a Sunday. Sit on the patio and you'll get an eyeful when Hi Fi across the street raises those massive sunscreens. It's a PG13 glass fishbowl. What a party! Video wall, DJ on stage and Go Go Girls dancing in silhouette on the bar.

Say what you want to about the spotty "service" but I see the General Manager humping it the whole time. That's good enough for me.

As for people constantly wanting to F I L L themselves: those who live in fat asses should not throw stones. Ya Taco Bell pig out monkeys. Stay out of our way if it's possible to move your fat ass aside far enough for others to pass.

Re: “Lerua's

Leruas does stand out because of the best tamales anywhere. The enchiladas are great and the prices are very good. Numerous combination plates equal great deals.

Re: “Poco and Mom's

This place is awesome, for all your mexican food needs. The drive through option is heads above your typical drive through mexican. The dinner plates are very tasty as well, although to onion heavy.

Where this place really shines though, are the breakfast plates. You have not lived until you have had the red chili pork tamales with fried eggs on top!

Re: “Boca

Maria's Taco Salsas are pure magic they are so fresh and delicious, with creative ingredients. The place is small, yet a diamond with the best tacos in Tucson for this experienced gourmand of Mexican culinary delights.

Re: “La Cocina de Gabby

Tried their Sunday Taco-bar buffet. Mexico City-style, slow-cooked, full-flavored meats are exceptional. Weekday menu excellent. One of the best shredded beef chimichangas I have eaten! Great fresh food totally prepared in Gabby's kitchen, even the chips. If you like good, simple food, check it out. I am going back for the buffet for sure.

Re: “La Olla

La Olla isn't your average run of the mill Mexican restaurant like all the others in town. So far we found their meals to be tasty with a slightly different flare to them. The refried beans are by far the best we've had in Tucson. Lunch prices are really cheap too. We're not saying we love everything here, the chili rellenos aren't great. Like most places, they're pretty small. But overall this place is a nice welcome.

Re: “Guadalajara Grill West

Great margaritas, especially at happy hour. Love the fresh salsa, and the enchiladas de calabacitas are excellent!

The parking lot is overflowing every time I drive by, the secret must be out.

Re: “El Rio Bakery

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.

I like it! Happy hour is great.

Re: “Mi Nidito

This is the real deal in spite of the hype of the past decade since "the president" dined here. The food is authentic; fattening and rich in Sonoran style sauces and traditions. The building is but a hole in the wall but it's owners and staff put out flavorful favorites; my personal pick: chicken enchiladas. You'll have a wait if you go at normal mealtimes. My advice: go at an off hour and enjoy!
