Unfortunately this restaurant has closed.
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...
Eddies is closed and is re-opening at a new location in a few weeks.
Its not thta Shell Shock is bad, they just have no soul. Very generic players. Good sound but you kinda get sick of them being in there every stinkin month. Bookin agent must be doing someone in the band...or all of em.
This is our second review - see 2011 review. Service continues to be a major issue at Opa. I asked twice for a drink refill. Put it this way. I ended up leaving my seat and walking over the beverage fountain to refill my glass myself. Awful! The free humus they give you remains very band too. But for five bucks the gyros during lunch are a deal. But don't add fries or a salad b/c you won't need all that extra food. Plus your five dollar meal will turn into an eight or nine dollar lunch.
Best Chicken Parmesan and Italian Wedding Soup in Tucson. ;-)
I forgot to add a rating to my review a moment ago.
I wanted to like this place, the location is handy. But the food was not all that good. The lemon chicken soup I thought was canned because the carrots were mush, the chicken seemed canned, but the pleasant waitress wearing a see-through Grecian chiffon dress that showed off her heavily tattooed body (but she had to wear white hose to cover her tattoed legs because the boss didn't like tattoed legs,) and tiara on her head told me it was made fresh, but it didn't have any flavor. The boss is absent, the plan for an organic farm fell through although there are signs advertising the non-existent farm as providing organic food and goat milk and cheese for the restaurant, and one wonders if this restaurant will stay in business. With good management it could do well. The owner is indeed a fat Greek, he must weight 300 pounds and I am wary of dining in a place where the owner is so obese as it means the food is not healthy. I like Greek food, but have not found a Greek restaurant in Tucson as good as Athens of Fourth downtown but they are not open for lunch.
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.
My Great Grandmother celebrated her 100th birthday. We wanted to make it memorable by taking a family portrait while we can seeing that she doesn't have many moons left. We were enticed with the savings that we thought we were getting by choosing Whitney as our photographer. In hindsight, I would have paid the extra money for someone with manners. We wanted the portrait done at our Grandmothers house in which she lived her entire life. We spend days of hard labor to fix up the home and get it in perfect shape for our anticipated portrait. I was disappointed when Whitney arrived late with the excuse that she had "bubble guts." I wasnt sure what that meant until I used the google search engine and found disturbing results. She was setting up her equipment and lights in the living room when I noticed she was passing flatulence. Upon confrontation, she then tried to pass blame onto my dear Great Grandmother who sat their innocently in her 90 year old rocking chair. I was hoping that by tolerating her poor attitude and manners that her work would be worth the hassle. Her photo arrived 4 months later and in poor condition. It looked like it sat in the back of someones car. It had dirty foot prints all over it and was wrinkled in many places. It was bittersweet that my Grandmother was not able to see her last photo. She sadly passed away before the photo arrived. I'm just glad she wasn't able to see the poor quality of a portrait that we all worked so hard to prepare for.
I have never been so disappointed with a service in my life. I have 4 cats and wanted a portrait with me and them all wearing identical sweaters that I knitted myself. I worked very hard knitting them and wanted my hard work captured in a family portrait. The events leading up to the portrait were precessional and gave the impression that my needs and expectations were ensured to be met. I was wrong. I was way wrong. When we arrived at her studio she snickered and made a snarling remark about how horrible my sweaters looked. After a brief moment of fight back tears I continued on because I didn't want to let my cats down. Especially Mittens. He has been excited the whole week prior. My cats were well behaved and didn't make any fuss at all. It really helped out that 3 of them were stuffed after they passed away 2 years ago. When she took the picture she didn't even tell me to say "cheese." As a young girl, that was always my favorite part when it came to taking a picture. She took the picture unexpectedly and wouldn't take another without wanting to charge me for an additional photograph. When I got the picture in the mail, I was mortified. Her photoshop skills were lackluster at best. I felt like Mittens could have done better. He was so disappointed when he saw the photograph that he walked away and hit under the bed. Prior to the photograph I asked her to remove a mole that noticeably sits on my face. Not only did she not remove it, but I'm fairly certain she added hairs to it. Circling back to her candid snapshot, Mittens was licking him self and I was in mid-sneeze. Needless to say, I am unhappy and never plan on calling her again.
I own a local business here in Tucson, and I always try to support the local community and small business. When approached by this studio for work collaborations I figured I would give it a chance. The owner is young, and very unprofessional. Talks about her personal life in less then pleasent ways. Not very reliable as our appointment times had to be changed a few times. I think her quality of work shows promise but I wouldn't jump at the chance to work with this business again.
No new reviews so i thought I would post one.
Friday has perennial 80's and G. Cover charge and packed. Saturday night ; no cover smaller crowd and sometimes very good bands (Giant Blue, etc). Definitely the night to go. Mixed crowd with many older people looking for hookups (well it's true). Drinks are very reasonable for Foothills, food good. Bartenders are nice and fast
