Re: “Char's Thai

Some dishes are a bit oily and they certainly don't use the best cuts of chicken or pork. You'll come across a little gristle here and there. Even so, this place offers some real tasty dishes. The curry is very good as are a few other items. Pleasant servers. Prices are very competitive too. With its few minor faults, this place remains one of the better Thai restaurants in town.

Re: “Bazil's

Pizza here is fantastic. Thin crust Chicago style. I love the turkey sausage he makes, and the shrimp and artichoke specialty pizza is delicious!!

Re: “Jax Kitchen

Love Jax. It is one of our favorites on the the north side. Food is simple, relaxed and perfectly prepared every time. The quality is there on the plate! Brian is a sharp restauranteur and his focus on detail, quality and a truly comfortable atmosphere is what keeps us coming back again and again.

Re: “Bookmans

Best thing about this Bookmans is the vast selection and funky staff. Plus you can go next door to get coffee, sandwiches, and/or a chocolate to die for cake. There is also wifi, so why not? Of course you're not going to get many new releases here, but you can always trade them in here. And since I'm an audiobook fan, let me put in a plug for those who have yet to try them. This is a good place to find some classics and full cast audiobooks for car and home. Once you're hooked, you'll be downloading them regularly. --J.L. TowerReview.com

Re: “Sanders Galleries

Sanders Galleries is home to Ka've Bowls. If you've not seen these bowls, they are unique wood turnings created by local artist Dave Dosh. The bowls are exquisite works of art, created from natural and dyed woods which are often inspired by Dave's travels around the world.

Re: “Beer Belly's Pub

The Place is great, sometimes a band called The Collectors show up and man, they really rock the place and make it a really fun time! I hope to see them there more often!

Re: “El Rio Bakery

I love this little place. The chile rellenos are excellent. The soups, filling and tasty, are served with a choice of corn/flour tortillas. It's a family run business [no, I'm not part of the family]. I've been so often that I know them, tho! The pan dulces can be taken home and so can the soups. When you sit in the small dining area you are down in Mexico, as the lovely mural fills the wall with rural scences that include an active volcanco.

Re: “M&L Airport Inn Bar and Grill

Good atmosphere. DJ Century spun a repertoire of music that kept the party going.
Played my requests and made it a fun time for me and my friends. Tucson's newest cutting edge Dj, check him out the boy has skills!

Re: “Bai Thong

I agree with Arthur and Reuven, above; this is a very good Thai restaurant with some excellent dishes. My introduction to Thai food was in Thailand in the 1970's. It was "instant affinity". After that, I frequently sought out Thai places when visiting or living in major cities in the US and Europe, which often provided fine culinary surprises. In Tucson, however, I've been disappointed (including at the other restaurants mentioned in reviews here), despite this city's many other good ethnic (and other) restaurants, so I'm especially happy to report on our superb dinner tonight (November 5th, 2010) at Bai Thong. We odered the gai satay and papaya salad appetizers, Pad Thai and a fish curry. Each was delicious. The peanut sauce was thick and rich and the chicken well-grilled and tender. The papaya salad blended spicy and tart flavors expertly. The fish curry was subtly spiced with kaffir lime leaves and enough anise to round out the peppery coconut sauce without dominating the mix. And the Pad Thai was well blended and just tart enough to bring up the taste of each ingredient. Thai food can be heavy; this wasn’t. The pricing was reasonable, and our service tonight was quick, efficient, attentive, dignified and pleasant, including a lovely smile. The decor (if you radically shrink the space) is actually not unlike many restaurants in Asia (which doesn't tend to the highly atmospheric except for tourists and theater). And the music was thankfully quiet. I personally enjoyed the touch of Buddhist homespun philosophy and scenic photos under the table glass. All in all, Bai Thong treated us to rich, complex and luscious flavors and textures and to an enjoyable evening of great Thai food.

Re: “Zachary's

As good as it gets outside of the Windy City. Deep dish like it should be.

Re: “Vero Amore

Must have been a bad day for darbone - I was there for dinner with two friends last Friday - 10-29 and had a WONDERFUL experience. Very attentive and friendly server, water served right after we were seated and the wine list offered. We split the very generous Caprese salad (no grey prosciutto here) which was wonderfully fresh right down to the very red and tasty tomatoes! We then split 2 pizzas - the Quattro Formaggi (wouldn't have minded just a TAD more cheese) and a special that night with sliced Italian sausage, red and green peppers, onions and lots of cheese. We were in no hurry as we were all catching up on each other's lives and never felt rushed at all. Finished the meal with one of their skillet cookies (chocolate chip with vanilla bean ice cream) and a white chocolate Pannacotta with blackberries. YUM! I know that the Dove Mountain VA has a larger menu but it was WAY too far for 2/3 of our group. We didn't feel cheated one bit by the Swan Road location! 4 stars instead of 5 due to the fact that the cheese pizza needed more cheese!
