I had got married on the 29th of March and had a little less than 200 people or at least 200 people. we were supposed to get food at 5:00pm for all of our guest Marys lucky dollar didn't come until 7:00pm. My guest where upset hungry and some even left because they couldn't wait any longer to eat due to them being elderly and needing to take medicine. Mary's lucky dollar decided to give my Mother in Law their pots and pans and said to give it to Gabby at Balloon Land that they didn't have enough room and didn't want to wait to finish serving everyone till the food was completely gone. They had called my phone asking for their pots and pans I informed them my mother in law has them. she then stated can you call her and have her drop them off at the balloon land. I did do this and informed my mother in law they needed them that night for a job the following day as soon as they called me. I tried talking to them about them being two hrs late and they just pretended they didn’t know what I said and said we just need our stuff you talk to gabby then hung up. The lady didn't call back nor gave me her name when I asked so I assumed it was taken care of. Two weeks later she calls back again stating we haven't given them their stuff back. So I responded and said Why was the stuff given to my mother in law in the first place it’s not our responsibility to have your stuff that is your guys job to have all of your stuff and be responsible for it at all times. And another thing I would like to know who I speak to about the dinner service you guys where 2 hrs. late and I had guest who had left because of this. She immediately said YOUR A LIAR!!! WE WHERE A COUPLE OF MINS LATE AND THATS IT. You owe us money if anything because we made food for 275 people. I said excuse me???? Did you just call me a liar??? this is how you treat your customers ??? First of all I paid a good amount of money for Gabby to pay you to feed for 200 people and that was at an all you can eat expense as well so that’s not my problem you made more then you were supposed to. What is your name? she said why do you need to know my name you just call gabby and take it up with her!! I said because I need to know who I am speaking to! So may I have your name please? she said Rosa I said ok Rosa and what is your last name? she said why do you need to know this information I said so I can report you for the bad service you did you were 2 hrs. late then you give my mother in law stuff that wasn’t hers to make it her responsibility and now you are calling me a liar and saying I owe you money when i paid 5500 for all of this to be perfect and it wasn’t!!!! well Roberto said it was good service and yes and who is Roberto was he my husband ?? was he the one who paid for all of this to happen???? No it was me and my husband and I’m telling you it was not a good service because you were 2 hrs. late may I speak to your manager. She then just stuttered um um um I said Rosa are you the manager or owner? she said no I said ok I need to speak to someone above your head please put your manager on the phone but she can’t speak to you because she doesn’t know. She doesn’t know what? She doesn’t know English so you need to take it up with gabby if you have a problem. I said oh I will and may I have your last name please or do I need to record this call? And she hung up. How rude of this place to one call me a liar when i have 200 witness stating when the food came and when it should have been then and two giving other people their stuff that she should be responsible for so now im getting harassed. This was suppose to go perfect considering it was my wedding day and it didn't but i was willing to talk bout it until i was called a LIAR and now im going to make sure this get's handled properly i don't care what it takes! NO ONE SHOULD GET TREATED THIS WAY AND I SURE WOULDN'T WANT IT TO BE THE NEXT COUPLES WEDDING TO GET SCREWED OVER AS WELL!
Best burrito's in the world! I don't live in Tucson but am going to retire there just so that I can get these vegetarian burritos twice a day for the rest of my life. I've tried them all and haven't found anything bad to say about anything. The service is GREAT and the staff are some of the most beautiful young ladies I have ever met. I hope that they all stay employed there even after graduating from the University of Arizona "GO KATS"! They don't deserve a five star rating but that is the highest it goes! They deserve a twenty million star rating!
Favorite Mexican food, favorite service, and one of our top favorites in town. My four-year old, who's in love with Delia, chose this place for his b-day. They work their butts off there to provide for an excellent experience. Never had a bad experience and have probably eaten there 50 times.
I just saw the film "Spinning Plates" that features La Cocina de Gabby. I was very touched by their beautiful and sad story.
The director has created a web site for strangers to help Antonio, Gabby and Ashley, if they wish.
I truly believe that American is the land of opportunity, but also of generous hearts.
(I’m waiting in line behind a woman speaking on her cellphone in another language. Ahead of her is a white man. After the woman hangs up, he speaks up.)
Man: “I didn’t want to say anything while you were on the phone, but you’re in America now. You need to speak English.”
Woman: “Excuse me?”
Man: *very slow* “If you want to speak Mexican, go back to Mexico. In America, we speak English.”
Woman: “Sir, I was speaking Navajo. If you want to speak English, go back to England.”
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.
Real low key one of the BEST mexican food restaurants in a town busting at the seems with them!
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 guys and I eat breakfast at Mosaic at least once a month. The food is always excellent, the service almost always good, and the beer cold. Most of us have been eating at the Mosaic for decades and will continue to for hopefully many more years. We appreciate the warm greetings we get from the owner and his family. The Mosaic is very much Tucson.
This could have it all. For a lonely boy looking for chile with an ‘e’ this place comes so close. Just not bold enough with the what we New Mexicans need to wake up our old decrepit bodies on a cold winter’s day. Having said that, it’s still the BEST (and maybe ONLY) place for New Mexican food in town. Once you go, you’l never go back to that Sonoran sludge of too much of everything except flavor that’s called Mexican food in Tucson. Yes, totally biased - and spoiled.
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.
Papa Locos is sooooo goood. Actually you can grab a six pack of beer next door and bring it in to the restaurant. Alot cheaper than paying $4-5 for a beer at other places.
I go to the Guadalajara Grill West
at Least 2 times per month for Happy Hour
Great Place to Chill; Beer and Margarita's are great.
Fresh Chips and Salsa; The Owner Emma is very customer service oriented
and plus she is easy on the eyes.
The bartenders Ramon and Christina are great.
I give this place a 10.
This is my neighborhood mexican joint and I go here at least 3 times a week. It never disappoints. A favorite is the bacon, egg and bean burrito without cheese or potatoes but I love the carnitas, carne asada, papas tacos, ceviche. You name it. You can ask for substitutions in all your burritos. I went on a burrito tour of a mile wide area and this is the BEST. I love their spicy salsa.
dont know what the big deal is. Food is average. No bar. long wait during prime time. Clinton ate hear? So what. He ate at MC'D's too.
From the ambience, to the friendly staff, to the great food there is nowhere else in Tucson that I enjoy eating more. It is a must hit every time my family is in town!
The best food I've had in Tucson. I went last Septemeber for my birthday and again for Cinco de Mayo and then my mom, aunt and I resolved to go at least once a month. I always get the Plato Poca Cosa and give the chef free reign on what I eat and have never been disappointed. The chocolate mole is to die for.
We went on a Friday night, there was only one person working and he had four sets of customers waiting. So the service was lacking a bit. I didn't take away any stars for this for two reasons. One, he let us know he had to send the other person working with him home that night because he was too sick to be working. Not his fault. And two, the food was so darn good, we didn't even care that the service was a tad bit slow. We ordered Carne Asada tacos, Camaron (beer battered) tacos, the Mar y Tierra (Surf and Turf) tacos and the Ranchero Style Whole Pinto Beans. Everything was made to order so when we got them they were still sizzling from the grill. Wow, were we blown away! They use rib eye and fresh shrimp for the Mar y Tierra with a drizzle of mustard on top. I am obsessed with this one and wanted to go back the next day to see if I was dreaming about it or if was truly one of the best tasting tacos I ever tasted, it was! The batter on the shrimp was very light, crispy, tasty and complemented the shrimp perfectly. The salsas served were delicious too.
Everything was fresh and the quality of the meat and shrimp made a huge difference in the flavor and experience. I've eaten at alot of taquerias in this town, this place is now my Numero Uno!
Awesome Tacos. Homemade shells that were light and crisp. Lots of refills of chips and salsa. Chili Rellenos not too much batter and fresh tasting.
I've always had fantastic food here, and find the service timely, friendly, in fact, extraordinary. And the prices are not at all expensive. The people who run this place are the best! The food is glorious. Noisy . . . ok, but not beyond a lot of restaurants. It's one of Tucson truly unique treasures. We take our local friends and our out-of-town guests here with pleasure.
