I recently was looking for an entry level road bike to help me train for my first triathalon. I went to the usual stores....trek, fairwheel, etc.. and was pretty convinced i was going to purchase the trek 1.5. I was driving towards the trek shop and i noticed Velo specialties on the side of the road and figured i might as well stop on in. This was the best decision I ever made. Velo specialties is a real LBS. Paul (the owner) is a very genuine man, and exudes a passion for cycling that i have yet to find in any other store in Tucson. He loves his product and he knows it inside and out. I test rode a bianchi via nirone 7 tiagra and fell in love. However, i wanted to go back to trek and make sure i was purchasing the right bike. When i got to trek, they were having a year end clearance sale and I had the opportunity to buy a trek 2.1 for the same price as the bianchi. The trek was clearly the better buy, but i purchased the bianchi from Paul because he impressed me that much. He offers coaching, advice, personal service, and a relaxed and fun atmosphere at his shop. Even if you are new to cycling, have no desire or money to purchase a road bike, or any reason to even look for a new bike, GO TO VELO SPECIALTIES. It is a great atmosphere and everything a bike shop should be. Thank you Paul and all the staff for helping me get into the saddle, can't wait for my first race!

Best place in Tucson to workout! Amazing staff, very well trained. They make your fitness goals a priority and work hard to help you achieve them. Fun and personable atmosphere, fellow clients are too.
I think the food at Caruso's is great! I have never been disappointed. The house salad dressing they have is so delicious I am always asking for more bread to dip in it. I am very happy that there is a place in Tucson that has history, great food and good service!
Great vibe, and a must for a light meal or drinks after attending an event downtown. Steak (now pork) frites was well-cooked and appropriately seasoned; mac & cheese was rich without being overwhelming. Featured cocktails change from time to time, and the adventurous won't be disappointed. Can feel a little understaffed at busy times, but the service remains cheerful and efficient.
Love this bar! Great Music, Bartender makes the best drinks, and the owner is HOT! Nicest bar in the area.
Great store with a variety of antique items and a huge selection of military items: medals, decorations current and from other countries. It's a must see!!
El Camino Royales--the best! You shouldn't miss them. Good music to do Lindy Hop, East and West Coast.
Great Bugers! Pitchers of long island iced t's... Sex room fantastic.. I got drunk with Vin Diesel and arm wrestled him... The owners name is God. The club has a very large stone thrown on the patio...
I go here all the time, the half sushi roll everyday can't be beat. My family is also a fan of the lunch box menu. The service staff seems to change a lot, but I can't say I've ever had bad service.
Great place for happy hour.

Maria Bonita was a wonderful place for a family, also with very delicious food. My family and I loved it. We were truly sad when we saw it closed. I seriously hope to see a Maria Bonita opened once more, but from my understanding why this family restaurant closed was in fact for the building, not completely sure but the owner had said that the building was in bad bad condition. Anyways hope to see it open once again, and if does my family and i will in fact be there.
I couldn't have enjoyed my experience more. The IPA was delicious, as were the burger and onion rings. Nice adult atmosphere and the service was good. I look forward to more visits in the future.
This is a first class studio/center run by two of the most unique and inspiring individuals
with limitless talents. The Shala is beautiful in and of itself, and the classes
are fun filled expressions of the natural beauty within us all. If you are looking for a place to celebrate life thru
the joy of dance, or you want to be the catalyst or play a part of making something special in the community, or participating in
something unique, this is the place Tucson! I am loving the West African Dance classes that have live drumming and never thought that I would be doing that! It's wonderful!
A real restaurant. Well run, professional, good food, actually decorated. A reliable place to put on the list.
We've been here five times now, and keep coming back. The atmosphere is Japanese Modern chic, with lots of black and red. The service is excellent and the sushi is too! It's fast becoming our sole sushi restaurant.
We stopped in thinking it was an Italian deli only and were pleasantly surprised by their dinner menu. They serve handmade vegetarian ravioli-several types, including a slightly sweet squash filled pasta that contrasted nicely with the buttery, garlicky sauce. My husband had the baked ziti with plenty of handmade sausage.
The cannoli made a fine ending to the meal. We noticed the variety of cookies in the pastry case but it was the unfilled cannoli shells that caught our eye. Chocolate dipped or plain? We asked our server for both and he cheerfully brought us cannoli that were perfect- they aren't filled until the customer orders them, keeping the shell from becoming soggy.
Bread baked fresh on the premises, overhearing some funny banter between staff, great food left us wondering, why hadn't we stopped in before?
We're grateful for decent restaurants on the eastside.
Great singers, Funny, Lots of energy, this would be a great date, or something to see with your girlfriends. FUN!
Wow. If you love tea, this is the place for you. Great atmosphere inside, even better tea selection. The service is better than most. Great place to buy gifts for tea lovers as well. I come here as often as i can to unwind and visit with old friends.
