Re: “Maynards Market and Kitchen

I've always been a fan of the grab and go food available at the Market, and then today I noticed that the muffins in the case that were being sold were COSTCO muffins, marked up to $2.50/each. Unacceptable to market food as made in house, then sell generic Costco food. There is no doubt they were from Costco, all four flavors that come in the standard mix package.

Re: “Asian Bistro

Middle school teacher here on a time limit - called in an order for delivery at 10:45. It did not arrive till nearly 1pm - I had 5 minutes. I called several times, and the person answering just said 'hello!" and would hand the phone to someone who spoke English. The English speaker, instead of saying that they were sorry, corrected me - seems I ordered at 10:48... Just as well, the Tom Yum soup had NOTHING in it - just broth - I ordered veggie Tom Yum. There were a few threads of onion. I ordered for friends, and felt bad for them. Most of the dishes are a variation of: fry up some meat and dump a slightly different sauce on it. Orange chicken and Thai chicken nearly the same. Very soggy. I will never return...

Re: “The Original Mr. K's BBQ

I was excited to be taken here by my Fiancee as I am from the South and recently moved here and was craving good BBQ. Sadly, I did not find it at Mr. K's. The meats were average and the sides were incredibly bland. Wasn't thrilled at the thick slice of plain white bread that accompanied the meal as well. Lots of flavors missing at Mr. K's.

Re: “HUB Restaurant and Creamery

WORST MANAGEMENT IN TUCSON! THERE ARE BETTER PLACES THAT ACTUALLY WANT YOUR BUSINESS BESIDES HUB!

The evening of my wife and my first visit to Hub started off wonderful. Great drinks, great atmosphere, OK food. I thought this was a place I could spend every Friday night. Hostess was very friendly and waitress was FANTASTIC (don't remember her name but my receipt says "L7" for the name).

Evening went downhill fast when the server dropped my wife's mustard and ketchup covered hot dog on her lap and in the process launched a full cup of ketchup all over me. The ketchup showered me, covering my sweater, shirt, pants. It even went into my hair and went down my collar and all over my neck and face. My wife rushed up to the restroom and the server (who was different from the waitress) casually said, "oh sorry about that I'll get some club soda, and do you need anything else?" obviously not realizing or caring about the ketchup fury he had unleashed upon my evening. I asked for the manager, whose name was Bret. This is where it truly gets bad. As I still wiped the ketchup off my neck and face, I told him that I was covered in ketchup. His response? "It was an accident."

"I understand that but I am just covered witch ketchup," I said still in dismay and shock at the situation. Bret callously repeated "It was just an accident." As he began to walk away he said under his breath, "Your meal will be comped."

I understand accidents happen and everybody has an off night. But what upset me so much was that Manager Bret never once apologized to my wife or I for what had happened. It was my waitress that apologized multiple times and even continued to give us excellent service after the ketchup shower. In fact Bret seemed inconvenienced to even come over and talk to me. It is very sad to me that someone like that is the face of this business. No one should be above apologizing for their own or their staff's mistakes. To top it off, they only comped the hot dog and tiny cup of ice cream my wife had afterward instead of our entire meal. I did not feel entitled to a free meal, but Bret don't tell me you will comp the whole thing and then only comp what was dropped all over us.

I am aware that it was just another busy Friday night for Manager Bret, but for us- his customers- it was our moment to decompress after a long hard week that was ruined. I just wish he would have cared a little bit about the situation. At the end of the night he went home the same as any other night I am sure. But now I have a ruined shirt, sweater and pair of pants and not so much as an apology from Bret.

Doubt I will go back to Hub. Makes me sad because I really wanted to enjoy myself there and add it to my list of go-to places. Food is similar to BJ's Brewhouse and at BJ's at least you can expect better parking and a manager that likes their job and cares about repeat business.

Got a salad that consisted of finely chopped up lettuce and little else. Not worth the nearly ten dollars I paid.

Re: “RPM Nightclub

I think this is 2 weeks in a row that RPM has had live music listed and both times - no band at all. Last night, no band (I drove cross town to see) and when you call to ask if "there is actually a band tonight" you get a recorded message telling you "the person you are calling is not available." REALLY? Get it together RPM!

Re: “Mimi's Café

Can't believe I spent sixty dollars on some of the worst food in my life. Does the cook not have taste buds or just not taste his food?

Re: “Mimi's Café

Terrible food that tastes like it came from a fast food dollar menu. Worse service.

Re: “Mimi's CafĂ©

Food was terrible. Beef bourguignon tasted like it came from a soup kitchen. Chicken madeira seemed to come off a dollar menu at McDonald's. Cordon bleu was half the size it usually was and very overdone. Vegetables were undercooked. Service was slow. The starter basket of bread came about the same time as the meals.

Re: “The Fathead Shop

just recently went to fatheads and ordered a piece custom made. Nothing to say except that they did not honor their work which was flawed (actually so bad designed that it wouldnt work) long story short dont expect anyone there including the owner thats a real asshole.

Re: “Kampai

We loved the Speedway location; however, the same food we normally order- sesami chicken and Sushi was not even edible and portions small.

David, did you loose your cooks or what, we will never return. After 8 years of twice a week patronage we are deeply disappointed

Re: “Frogs Organic Bakery

Was going to try this place, but when I saw the menu and they charge $2 and $3 extra for a piece of gluten-free bread if you don't want the wheat bread, I realized the place must be run by an authenthic Paris frog.
Now you can get a frog rip-off without going to Paris.
If there were 16 slices of bread in a gluten free loaf, they are charging $48 extra for each loaf they sell at a $3 a slice.
Is this how you want to spend your money?

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

i dont know how the actual experience is because we never actually went there, but we had tried to plan an event with a group of friends and had called to set it up for this weekend. once we found out that several of our friends would not be available we called back to cancel our reservations, within 2 hours of setting them mind you, and were told that we would be charged anyway. the person who we talked to was rude and insisted that all reservations are a final sale. that there are no refunds or cancelling allowed. i dont know what i would be refunded for, i havent received anything yet, but they think they are allowed to charge me over $400 because we need to cancel a reservation.

Re: “Belle Chic Salon Spa Boutique

The worst ever! Unprofessional, sloppy stylists working in a dirty salon with an owner that will fabricate/lie about the work of her stylists if a complaint is made. Not even remotely customer service oriented. Jerica did a horrible job coloring my hair and even though she used foils for color, left a 1/8 or my original hair color showing. I wrote a review for their Oracle location immediately after my tie dye hair job and it has since mysteriously disappeared along with the listing for that location. I don't generally complain and am busy person. When I did complain to the owner about my experience there, she lied about her stylists actions and her observations. A stylist can have years of experience and still do a crappy job, especially if they spend the majority of the appointment time talking to the stylist next to them who happened to be the owner. No wonder they do bad work if the owner has such low standards about doing their own client and feels free to discuss other co-workers in front of clients. I felt so horrible and shocked about my experience that I said whatever I had to say to get out there as quickly as possible. I did get the hair color that I as looking for on the first try, from another salon.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

This was horrible! I cannot believe I paid $39.00 for this! I wanted my money back. Very, very bad. If you want to see a show go to the gaslight theater! This is a low budget performance!

Re: “Guadalajara Grill East

They used CANNED ingredients to make your salsa. Tastes like Pace. Rest of the menu fare's the same. Definitely a gringo Mexican joint. Better choices elsewhere.
