The free tango lessons at Cafe Vincente were the greatest one on one dancing instructions I have ever witnessed. Superb is the only word we can use to describe the combined experience of authentic Tango Argentina lessons taught by Ms. Forde, her attention to individual requests and her professional style. Along with the great food and beverages our evening was nothing short of magnificent.
Know Where II is the old Gilligan's Pub. The original owner took back the business after only 5 months but, kept the changed name. Kevin is back with a vengeance to build new business. You won't find the same things you were used to at Gilligan's or, from the ditzy lady who thought she new how to run a bar. The bartenders are fantastic, the bar itself has been given a makeover and the outside was painted. He's not finished yet either. The bar is clean, I mean clean! There's Karaoke on Thursday and Friday nights, they are looking for another host to play Saturday nights and the drink specials are extremely fair. Check it out, the place is AMAZING!
Would recommend this restaurant to anyone based on two main observations.
1. Charming atmosphere and superb service.
The server was attentive and very helpful. He answered all questions that I had and was overall very knowledgeable regarding the food that was being served.
2. Food far surpassed my expectations.
The dinner salad was light and refreshing and portioned to be the perfect amount where I didn't feel that I had eaten too much when I had finished while still leaving me ready for the main course.
The Lasagna was superb and came with ample supply of delicious marinara sauce. I'm told that it weighs in nearly close to a pound. I was happily able to take half of it home with me as I look forward to finishing it for dinner.
Plate presentation was excellent as well. Things looked to be placed in specific locations to make the dish more appetizing unlike other restaurants who just throw it together and serve it out.
Overall, I rather enjoyed my experience and look forward to returning in the future.
Me & my ol' lady went to the Monterey Court Cafe for breakfast on a Saturday morning and we both decided to get the Monterey Breakfast (burrito), mine served w/ the seasonal fruit and her's w/ the southwest potatoes. What a great choice we made, everything in this burrito seemed to compliment each other; plus the pico de gallo on the side was beyond fresh. It may seem expensive @ $7.95 but believe me, I was convinced that when I saw the size of this thing that I would be taking some of it home. That didn't happen. It was so good that my gluttonous side kicked in & I devoured the monsterous sized thing. Delicious food, great service & a very casual atmosphere. We will be returning in the near future to try some of the other delectable sounding items on the menu. Highly recommended!
The menu items are really good. I wouldn't recommend the buffet though.
Kelly is amazing! The space is so relaxing and wonderful, I highly recommend to anyone especially if it's your first time, she makes you feel so comfortable!
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.
Absolutely phenomenal place to go hang out and eat a pie or two. (And this is coming from an East Coast transplant pizza snob) Love the italian pie, and the pepperoni pizza, while a generic choice, is the best pepperoni pizza I have ever eaten in AZ.
The beer is ice cold too, and they have sports on the flat screen.
Why wait for an hour to get into GG, when this place is right next store?
Excellent phos and other Vietnamese foods. Fast and friendly service as well. I always try to eat at Halong Bay whenever in Tucson.
Good used book store. Frequent events. I've seen everything from book signings to reptile displays. Free wifi. For sale are movies, CDs, decorations, video games, musical instruments, board games, puzzles, and I think they have a used book or two there also...
Best Chicken Parmesan and Italian Wedding Soup in Tucson. ;-)
They have a great Karaoke on Thursday nights. Good service, good prices.
Outstanding. Quick, inexpensive, good flavors.
This is by far my favorite thai place in Tucson. Yes, the service is not the best, the restaurant is often closed on random days and it's a little run down but the food is well worth it. Also, the lunch buffet is great and inexpensive.

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!
Awesome food, haven't had a mediocre meal ever since I started eating there. It's usually packed Sunday late-mornings, so get there early or be ready to wait for a table, it's a small-midsize restaurant.
Best prices for cards. Fun atmosphere. Also, one of the top rated judges presides over the events. Good people. Good times.
Great beers, tasty food, attentive servers, no skimpy portions! Very relaxed kick back atmosphere, pool tables too.
