This was the worst performance and dinner I have ever experienced. I planned this dinner for an anniversary gift for my wife. The hype on the website explains a nice “candle-lit dinner” and gift of $15 value.
First our arrival. This “dinner theater” is in the rear corner of the Great Wall of China restaurant, near the bathroom and kitchen door. The theater room consists of four small tables, where they seat three couples per table. The stage is nothing more than a tarp with a picture of a moon and castle on it. The show started 45 minutes late.
During the entire performance, workers from the restaurant were exiting the kitchen, and patrons from the restaurant were walking through to use the bathrooms. You see and smell the chinese food and think, “Oh, maybe the food will be good.” Don’t be fooled, you are going to get a budget salad, mediocre at best. The food is a cheap spaghetti noodle dish with white alfredo sauce on it, three steamed baby carrots, three steamed broccoli, and some type of chicken alfredo roll? My thoughts were, “I will probable spend the rest of the night with diarrhea.” To top it off, desert was a small serving of plain cheesecake, nothing more, which had probably been in the back kitchen for over a week.
The talent of a high school play is probably slightly greater than the performance at this theater. The actor who was killed in the play also played the role of the police officer who investigated his murder. The actors chuckled and commented, “What do you expect, this is a low-budget play.” Don’t get me wrong, I did chuckle a few times, but it was largely because I count not believe these people, this experience, was for real, it was really that getto. It was like watching the viral video on YouTube of the “I like turtles” kid, you just can’t believe what just happened.
Our anniversary gift was a dollar-store toy, a plastic ball and chain, gifted for me. How much more romantic can you get, right?
At the end, one actor pulled out a vote ballot from his coat. The ballots appeared to have been in the street for a week, run over and spit on. I was honestly afraid to touch them without having Lysol wipes for my hands afterward. They also give you a tip envelope stapled to a paper advertising 18 and 20 % gratuities. For our two tickets, they wanted $20 on top of the $90 dollars we paid for the show in the first place. On top of it, I had to pay the Great Wall of China restaurant for our two drinks, which also requested a gratuity.
People, if you go to this show, the only thing of actual value you will get is the story you will tell to your great grandchildren about how you and your significant other paid hundreds of dollars to see the worst show of your life in Tucson, Arizona. If that is what you’re looking for, you’ve found it!
Best tuna sub in the world!
We were told about the Tuesday seafood buffet and how good it was, we were not disappointed. It was outstanding!!!! Of course it made it better because we got it free with our player card. First time there and we each also got $10.00 free play, we came home winners also! Our only complaint, very smoking inside, they need better ventilation.
This place is disgusting. I see roaches came out from the kitchen. Where's the inspector?..
Golden Corral is at best hit and miss, this one in Tucson is mostly miss. Their main problem is lack of help, I've been in food service over 30 years and I can tell. GC recipes are fool proof and quite good IF FOLLOWED.
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.
There's about 3-4 places in town where you can get a real NY slice, this is one of them. Really enjoyed it. Only gave 'em 4 stars because I haven't tried anything else, but I will!
I should have turned around and walked out when I saw all the fedora hats and laptops on the tables. I ordered a GC tamal to go, passable at best, would probably beat out anything you'd get in North Dakota though. Another "cool people' joint.
This may be a wonderful theater when they're open, but last night some friends and I went down looking forward to the 7pm show of The Great Beauty indicated in the Weekly to find the place closed with no indication of anything anywhere except an upcoming "horrorfest." We should have been forewarned when we called ahead and got a recording that was made back in November, with not a word said about current or upcoming shows, but we figured they were just too busy to update their message. This was probably a mistake on the part of the Weekly rather than the Screening Room, but it was frustrating.
Luke's Italian Beef on Alvernon was a disappointment and a waste of time and money.... the kid with the tattoos working there would rather work on his truck than wait on customers.... He acted annoyed to take our order and was rude.... The girl doing in the back doing our french fries did not even know what she was doing? I expected a lot better food and service for the price!!!!! The lobby was a mess and employees were just standing around talking..... Not going back there again! I would rather go to the one on Ft Lowell I have always had best service and hot food!!!!
went there with my girlfriend, service was pretty good and fast,clean place, the food was actually very good, had a cold european beer with my stuffed cabbage. the owners were pretty cool down to earth ppl, gave us free samples of european candy, it actually felt good supporting a small mom n pop local buisiness. would definately return for more stuffed cabbage.
That is pretty cool, I personally like the commercial painting services in Phoenix, AZ. I pretty much just love everything about AZ actually, and it is nice and warm down there.
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.
We were in for dinner tonight, which we visit about once a month. I always order the King size Prime Rib. Tonight I have to tell you, I am not sure we will be back! I made the mistake of answering yes when the waitress ask if I cared to have it seered on the grill! The cook BUTTERFLIED MY 21.00 PIECE OF PRIME AND COOKED IT LIKE A STEAK! Why would someone EVER do that WITHOUT ASKING THE GUEST IF THAT'S OKAY! seriously, it took all the juice out of the meat, the bottom piece of butterfield meat was about an 1/8 of inch thick, and if I wanted a steak I would've ordered a t-bone! they were gracious enough to take the dinner off our bill, but it kinda ruined the dinner of which I have maybe one to two nights a month that I that I am not too busy to go out to eat! We use to visit the Outback on Ina, but it has seriously went down hill also! Not sure where we will go now? The poor server was shocked when I handed her the 20.00 tip, and said she could accept it, but I quickly told her it was NOT her fault, IT WAS THE COOK!
Great shop! True antiques mixed with contemporary and vintage accessories. The shop's owner does a fantastic job of selecting and designing various items that are ready to immediately incorporate in a home. This is one store we never miss visiting when we come to Tucson.
Arrogant owner and a female bartender. If you are a disabled person expect to be harassed. Unacceptable, as well as unlawful behavior.
Alas, closed, but it was a great place for good food at good prices. There's a Greek fast food restaurant in the space now.
I rather enjoy the Hut usually. They got giant jenga, corn-hole and huge connect four, make it worth going just alone. Bar service is nice, but the way they conduct themselves when a problem arises is just embarrassing. We were there for about a hour a half playing jenga (Which is awesome because of how huge it is) celebrating a friends birthday, when some little blond girl started some ish with my friend and calling her out to fight outside. The bartender kicks all of us out, just for us being yelled at by this enraged, loud, tatooed blondie. I would understand if we boosted the fight but we sat there and separated ourselves, ended up getting kicked out for no reason and now have a negative experience for the first time there. stars are for the games and that alone.
NASTY NASTY NASTY, This is no way close to a Chicago sandwhich, Pastrami should never be warmed up on a grill, and served burnt and dry. and for $8.00 and change, I should get at least a drink and fries. but was very disappointed on taste & price. & will never ever go there again. Who ever says this taste like a Chicago style sandwich is not from Chicago and has no clue..
The Sea Of Glass is a fantastic space! 4th Avenue needed this!
