We went on a Friday night, there was only one person working and he had four sets of customers waiting. So the service was lacking a bit. I didn't take away any stars for this for two reasons. One, he let us know he had to send the other person working with him home that night because he was too sick to be working. Not his fault. And two, the food was so darn good, we didn't even care that the service was a tad bit slow. We ordered Carne Asada tacos, Camaron (beer battered) tacos, the Mar y Tierra (Surf and Turf) tacos and the Ranchero Style Whole Pinto Beans. Everything was made to order so when we got them they were still sizzling from the grill. Wow, were we blown away! They use rib eye and fresh shrimp for the Mar y Tierra with a drizzle of mustard on top. I am obsessed with this one and wanted to go back the next day to see if I was dreaming about it or if was truly one of the best tasting tacos I ever tasted, it was! The batter on the shrimp was very light, crispy, tasty and complemented the shrimp perfectly. The salsas served were delicious too.
Everything was fresh and the quality of the meat and shrimp made a huge difference in the flavor and experience. I've eaten at alot of taquerias in this town, this place is now my Numero Uno!
My wife and I went to the Original Hideout last Saturday night to meet our friends. Never having been there, we were a little worried with all the stories we've heard throughout the years... Well, let me put your mind at ease! As we pulled into the parking lot it was apperent this is the place to be on Saturday nights. It was a full lot. As we traversed the lot for the third time a security gaurd met us and directed us to a spot. I thought it very nice of the fellow. As we walked up to the door, there was quite a few people outside, we could here the music playing inside. It was a hot and muggy night, but inside was dark and cool. It was a packed house so we slowly made our way to the bar, three bartenders at the ready taking orders from the crowd, soon a beautiful bartender took our order and off we went to find our party. We found our friends at a table right off the dance floor, we squeezed in and enjoyed our drinks as the band started their second set of the night. Let me just say at this juncture, Los Bandidos, (house band for the 11 years, I later found out) is so great... they have the crowd jumping on the dance floor. Many couples don't even get off the floor, they just stop dancing. Growing up listening to my fathers music, I became an instant fan of Los Bandidos. They play all the classic Norteno/Conjunto music I have come to love and thought I would only here in old tapes and CD's. There hook is to play any song the patrons of this westside night spot ask for, I requested a few of my favorite tunes and was dancing to them within a few songs. I don't know why it took us so long to find this Saturday night gem, but we're regulars from now on.

The servers are very attentive and the food is consistent and very good. It is a wonderful locally owned spot where we grab a quick meal once a week.
The first time I went was lunch on the patio it was awesome,2nd time took freinds for dinner on patio,we had horrible service and managment gave us a $20 gift cert.Tried it again because I have always loved Scordatos family,There seemed to be plenty of help but service was really bad and slow ost dishes didn't come with ingredients as explained on menu.There were at least 3 managers on the floor but not really doin their job.Sorry to say we were so disappointed we won't be goin back.Manager should read his reveiws.I would rather have my dinner alittle late instead of cooks just throwing things together to get it out.Surprising and sad for Scordato's reputation.Bummed out!
Good staff and very friendly. I flew in from Indiana and this bartender was just about to lock the doors a little early, he seen me outside and waved me in. He let me drink til closing and treated me like a king. I will stop there every time I fly in thank you mick or whatever your name was!
Unique menu, fantastic patio, great bar with live jazz on Saturdays and Sundays, excellent beer selection, caring staff... unique to Tucson - a must try!
Support Dennis Reed and Arizona Inn...
This restaurant has the best vegetarian Vietnamese selection in Tucson--very extensive. Prices range from more expensive than I would expect to very cheap. Luckily their excellent baguette sandwiches are only $4.50 and are delicious.
I've gone to many films there in the past several months, and while I expected to watch a good movie, usually ended up watching a really great one. The Screening Room is a Tucson treasure! So looking forward to AZUFF there in Sept.
I came to this place of Love & Oneness almost a year ago. Since then I have met the most loving group of friends i could ever imagine. For me it`s like Heaven on Earth. We are family in a way i never could have understood before. The energy we share uplifts, heals, loves & support`s us all as we are spiritual beings. In these human bodies it`s easy to forget about our spiritual energy. Tamara brings the best of this energy out.. you can`t help but feel it when you walk into the door. It has been actively serving the Healing & Spiritual need`s of those seeking it for over 30 years now. Namaste <3Debra Butler
Don't bother calling Fandango for ticket prices. The recording says it will give the theater's phone number but it doesn't. Century Gateway is also not in the phone book. So don't bother with this theater, you will be very frustrated and get no info what so ever.
A truly fun experience with a very knowledgeable store keeper. Carries a variety of local and regional sauces, syrups, honeys and jellies that are not easily found elsewhere.
We love to eat out, but seeking a decent place to patronize is hard to find. Texas Roadhouse has become our favorite spot to eat. The food is great, including the blackened salmon. The sincere, friendly service is a major reasonwhy we keep coming back. It does get very busy, so when it is just the two of us we saddle up to the bar and order from Dave who takes care of our dining pleasure. Bottom line... good deal, great food, awesome service!
Excellent pulled pork but all else disappoints. Stopped going there when I had had enough of the owner's attitude - if I wanted the New York "tude", I would live in Manhattan.
I've been here twice and I wasn't impressed either time. It seems like a horrible value. I ended up paying $17 (tip and tax included) for some grilled veggies, lettuce, pita bread, and hummus. The water tastes really funky. Their sign says vegetarian paradise, but I didn't find that many vegetarian items on the menu. I'm not going back.
I am addicted to the messy fries, and smoked turkey sandwiches and the wings. And I agree with the dude above me the salmon is AMAZING.
Horrible food and rude waitresses who belittle customers. This is why the place is always empty
Ragu is better! All the people adding four and five star must be related to the Asian family that owns this place cause it was musty and smelly inside, the food was cold in the center and the staff was clueless.
Don't waste your time coming here it is NOT worth it!
