My husband and I have been watching Kitchen Nightmares recently and I felt it was our responsibility to let the public know about this place.
He worked there for a few weeks a couple years ago. He quit because he said the place was filthy. He previously worked at Olive Garden for 3 years which has is immaculate I might add. He ended going back to Olive Garden.
When they were showing him around they went inside the walkin in cooler. On the floor was a bin...like a Sterilite bin. Inside this bin was their main sauce that they use. It was not covered at all, just sitting on the floor open to let stuff fly in it. They told him to step over so they could show him stuff. He lost balance while doing so (those things are pretty large) and his foot went in the sauce. He immediately apologized and they were like "Don't worry about it" and continued to use it. His nasty dirty shoe WENT IN THE SAUCE and they STILL USED IT!!!! EW. He also said the kitchen was disgusting. He actually took it upon himself and tried to clean it.
He and the other line cooks would smoke in the walk in cooler. The managers/owners did know about this because he said one time they walked in when they were smoking. The guy was like "Hurry up" He also said they would sometimes join.
Before I even met my husband and knew about this place, many of my friends had gotten food poisoning from this place as well.
I beg of you, please please do not go to this restaurant. I've never eaten there myself and now I never will.
This is NOT a brewpub but a motel restaurant/bar. Old folks from Green Valley. Worse now with the Snow Vultures back.
Not sure what Mo is trying to pass off as veal but it looked and tasted like deli turkey. It should be illegal to fradulently advertise and serve something that isnt.
Look forward to this place closing.
Number disconnected just like pima county no one cares I'm a disabled Veteran on oxygen and am behind on my electric they are shutting my electric off on the 28th without it I die...
Save yourself the hassle...BEWARE! I paid upfront for acoustic guitar pickups because the owner told me he was on the phone ordering at the time I was in the store, and could get me a really good price. I paid more than $200 up front, two years later now, no pickups. He also sold a consignment instrument of mine and kept the money. Believe it or not, there is more...suffice to say...BEWARE!
Will never patronize this restaurant ever again!. They wouldn't accept a $100 gift certificate. We received it as a gift from some grateful friends, but management wouldn't honor it. WHY NOT? It's equivalent to us having paid for our meal in advance. Definitely not a sound business approach for endearing themselves to their customers.
My daughters hair is a mess. We ask for our money back so we could get it fixed and she hadn't even looked at it and said no... very unprofessional! BEWARE
I just wanna start off saying, I love the bay. I love going their and singing my heart out when I can... It's my neighborhood bar, and I go there as often as I can. That being said, lemme tell you all about my experience tonight.
First off, I'd like to start by saying that the regular bartenders and karaoke dj are very much biased to sexual orientation. This being a bar, I would normally understand. Except for tonight, when apparently a customer of the male persuasion, happened to see a female customer whom he had a restraining order against. Upon seeing said patron, the male customer did as the restraining order suggested, and called the police. Not my first reaction to an ex, as I would have just left, but nonetheless still his reaction. Anyway, the cops showed up...
Now let me make it clear, I DO NOT KNOW EITHER PARTY INVOLVED. I just happened to be standing at the rear gate when 3 tpd officers arrived. They then had a short conversation with the owner Dennis, whom also, I had never met. They asked him directly if he knew what was going on. To which he replied, no, then he admitted that he did have knowledge of a restraining order issue that was being handled. At that point, one of his waitresses, said that yes, she was hiding in the bathroom, and she was leaving. I, having nothing to do with either party just sat there, enjoying my drink and the night.
Later, when I happened outside again, I saw the bartender ( an older lady with a puffed up hair do and bad makeup) and the karaoke dj argueing with the male patrons friends on why he had to leave, did I mention that I had been there when tpd had said that the girl had to leave. That they wouldn't be charging the male and also letting him go back into the bar. Suddenly, I was an issue too. I told them that I didn't want any trouble, but rather that I was just stating the truth. I truly was just telling the truth, not thinking anything else about it.
I then went back inside to check on my song selection, considering that it had been over 2 hours since my last song, only to be told that because I had the audacity to tell the truth, I was done singing for the rest of the night. When I asked why, I was told that "it was because I couldn't shut my mouth". I then stated that I had only told the truth, and that I didn't wanna start shit, but that IS what the officer said. At that point the karaoke dj told me that I was cut off and was about to get kicked out. At that, I began questioning why. I can admit (mainly because I am NOT a liar, and I had had 2 and a half beers) that I did get upset, and I did raise my voice. I said "why would you kick me out for telling the truth? " and "that IS what the officer said" over and over. Suddenly someone said that I was starting shit with the dj. I told them that they were very wrong, but that I just didn't understand why I was being persecuted for telling the truth. At which point I was grabbed by a customer and started to get escorted out by force. During my forced exit, I saw the dj talk to another patron, who then also got in my face saying that I had tried to hit said dj. He then proceeded to follow me out threatening me that if I ever came back there he would "kick my ass". Now, I can admit, that yes, at this point I went from upset to pissed off, and I also began to talk shit back. Telling the old man that I would love the chance to kick his ass back. Truthfully though the guy was so old that I was almost afraid that he might have had a heart attack in the parking lot... and no, of course, it wasn't Dennis the owner. Just some jackass friend of the dj not really knowing what was going on, but still their to defend his girl.
My point is, after all of that, obviously I wasn't drunk because I am writing this as I walk home. Obviously, the owner, Dennis, should have let the rest of the staff know what tpd said before leaving the premises . Obviously, I should not have been persecuted for telling the truth. And obviously, I will never be back here. Which is a sad statement, because I truly did enjoy the place until now. I will also be letting every single person I know, and come into contact with, know what happened to me here. On every single site, and blog I can find. Plus, because I personally know of many times they have served to people they shouldn't, and over poured to regulars. And because I live directly across the street, I will be calling the police every time I see anything that looks like it could be fucked up until I get them closed down... I promise.
This place sucks. Horrible service, poor food. They give hamburgers cutesy 50's names and charge 8 bucks for a basic fast food ho-hum burger that's nothing special. Our waitress forgot about us for 40 minutes after we ordered and brought us cold food, I complained to the manager the next day and never heard back. Avoid this place
Terrible food and the owner is incredibly rude. I've seen him harass cyclists and customers. Perhaps if he spent as much time working on his business as he does bothering customers it'd be worth eating here. As it stands, better to run the other way.
I could cry. Yes its that bad, the service, is deplorable, small portions, of not very good food, horrible chairs,
and the only thing that i can say was good, was the nice waiter, the bus boy, ect. I have never seen anything like this. the only good thing was the refried beans. Go to Mi Nidito (520) 622-5081 - 1813 S 4th Ave, Tucson, AZ , that is where I am going to from now on. Trust me this place is a disaster , and even with a reservation you are greeted with the most unfriendly hostess.
Owners Sharmon and Marvin Woods rule this school like a prison camp. Outdated material and a very hostile environment,especially if you are overweight. These people have their own collections department to harass dropouts, so their repayment status stays high, guaranting federal loans. Stay away from these people, VERY BAD NEWS!
This owner, Tony Bernard, has an "F" rating with the BBB and ignores all their requests to settle all the disputes against him. He will blatantly lie to your face and has no conscience. My story...same as everyone else. Paid up front for music software & hardware promised in one week. It didn't come. Then I read the reviews here, on yellow pages and yelp and knew what I was in for and cancelled the order after a month of waiting and he said he'd refund me. Even after me telling Tony that I read all the dozens of bad reviews, he still put me off time after time for 2 months. I recorded all the phone calls of him promising he'd send me a refund and never sending it. I finally had file complaints to the Arizona Attorney General and the BBB. When I told him I was going to put a bad review on line, he pleaded like a baby for me not to. The only way to get your money is to threaten him. How he stays in business, I don't know. How his employees stay there is beyond me. He needs professional help as a pathological liar.
Not only is the strip mall dumpy, its also a hangout for those who have trouble coping with the law of gravity, and its surrounded by one of the worst slumlord neighborhoods in the city. TPD should just open a satellite office here as they are in they parking lot most of the time anyway. Last time I ate there the coffee was truly awful, more like colored water. Eggs sunny side up were served up almost raw and the hash browns barely touched the stove. Serving up undercooked food can be a health hazard. Yes it might be cheap, but its also really bad. There might be a chef on the business card, but there certainly is not one in the kitchen. People who like the food served up there must be desperate, because frankly, in this neighborhood there is no other place you can go to.
Time Market has entered into a serious period of decline. This Tucson Weekly review has become dated. Time no longer has a deli. They primarily serve pizza slices, beer, and wine. Although they close at 10pm, do not expect to be served if you arrive after 9pm (youll be told nothing is available except the last few leftover cheese slices). They turn off their coffee machine at 7pm because they want to start breaking down three hours before closing. Don't turn to management for any help, even the owner will attempt to insult you with smug remarks when given reasonable feedback.
I just found out that they went out of business!
Does anybody know why
Sara their front office help came to my work wanting to pay in pot & then left poor reviews everywhere when she wasn't catered too...
So much fun, and inspiring. 4 Stars!
Behind every great fortune,there is a crime
Mosaic is not the same restaurant I remember. Went there for New Year Eve lunch 12/31/14. Asked for a window seat,(there were plenty) and got seated in a plastic bush in the center of the room. Across the way,a tablecloth was draped over a table that had the top glass over its contents broken,that was left there next a to the window....where some of us would have liked to sit.The waitress warned us about the new waiter that would be taking our order,and mentioned that she would make sure he got it right.Which he did,but then we never were checked on after that,until he brought the check.Our table had only forks on a napkin,as did most of the tables with diners and without. As I pondered whether it was a new Mexican tradition to eat with only forks,I noticed that 4 recently seated diners had knives and forks. Okay....dishwasher problem,not enough utensils,who knows....But I will not be returning to Mosaic any time soon.Shoddy shoddy shoddy without the dialed down drink or menu prices.
