I've gotta say, I am disappointed in the Speedway store.
Luke's, on Alvernon, is the real deal; the old fellow there is related to the master Italian beef maestro I grew up with in Chicago. He knows his stuff; not so at the other locations which apparently are owned/run by others. Point: dryish beef sandwiches are a no-no. Italian beef has to DRIP and SOP thru the brown bag - you have to wear an apron to eat it. At $6.95 a pop, a customer should be licking their fingers after eating one, and lusting after another.
Go to the Alvernon store; I hope it still delivers.
I love these crepes!!! Both the savory and the sweet crepes are great. The classic Swedish ligon berry is my favorite and the tea flavors are wonderful (for those non-coffee drinkers).
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.
I have been buying from this store for 13 years. I have even ordered fresh turkeys and standing rib roasts. All the food has been wonderful. I drive in from Peoria, AZ every 3-4 months and always stop and fill up the cooler. They even make a wonderful horseradish that is fresh and guaranteed to clear your sinuses. Will be back there in August for more.
The first pizza i consumed from this restaurant, was a regular flat pizza, and, it was quite tasty. i returned,and, ordered a pan pizza. It consisted of a pile of canned tomatoes on top of a bland tasting dough.
Really ron? Give me a break
My family and I are addicted to the great food, good service, and charming atmosphere. sitting outside has that "comfortable" feel. We've tried most dishes on the main menu and have enjoyed every one! Ate there again last Friday and they hit a homerun again!
I think its a rip off. I went with my mom & 2 of my children on Sunday for brunch for Father's Day. They were charging 19.95 per adult with is reasonable but then they said they didn't have a kids price they were charging me 19.95 for my children who were 4 & 5 which I think is ridiculous! Really like they don't make enough money? Half price would've been fine but to pay the same as an adult is crazy!
food is disgusting, bar is more limited than your grand dad's liquor cabinet, and it is an obvious chain... BUT WHO CARES!
Now this is some Italian food! The crispy thin crust pies are excellent. There are also little gems of italian greats all over the menu, such as the shrimp fra diablo...
This place will continue to be in my rotation of eateries.
I find this place gross and a disgrace to italian cuisine. I really hate to bash a local independent restaurant, but frozen, boxed apps, and an absolute flavorless sauce is a sure fire way to not endear yourself to an italian foodie.
The reason why the Joe's special is so popular? That is the only dish containing garlic and the cheese masks the horribly HUNTS tomato sauce.
Step ya game up! Nothing like my "Mama's" cooking.
Real low key one of the BEST mexican food restaurants in a town busting at the seems with them!
Frankie's is the absolute best! Quintessential east coast sub shop right here in Tucson. The cheesesteaks are amazing, Whiz, add hot peppers!
Try to go when Frankie himself is there. Not only does he heighten the customer service experience ten-fold, but when the Cat is away the mice have been known to try and skimp on the cheese.
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!
The difference between eating in at Ba Dar and ordering delivery is night and day. Some consistency would be appreciated.
This place has a great deal of potential and is pretty damn good as is. There are times, however, where their BBQ lacks the flavor punch that it is capable of.
As a bar, this place is 5 stars for sure!
left out a word, should have said ribs are very meaty and not too fatty
very meaty ribs with good flavor and too much fat.
can't understand the other reviews, awful food ... very oily because too much food is being cooked in pans and the pan is not hot enough. My wife and I were both ill after our meals here. this is a common theme in their Yelp reviews. We should have listened to those warnings.
Good to see the Hog Pit getting some good reviews, this place has great BBQ. I've had the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, the ribs, and also the chicken. The meats are always tender and juicy, the rub they put on the slabs is great, as are the 3 homemade sauces (mild, med, hot). Sides are excellent too - slaw, cornbread, very tasty beans. Owners are very friendly, good selection of beers, plus sweet tea. Nice place, the pit master knows his stuff, check it out!
