Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Worst food EVER!! Cole slaw was smothered in mayo only! French fries were no longer than an inch and a half----what? The end of the bag? Mashed potatoes stale and cold.
Fried fish was covered in a leathery weirdness that is indescribable. Only thing good was the beer and Cosmo but then again, it took forever to get refills. Place should have been packed given the number of TVs and that it was Final Four weekend but apparently previous guests had tasted the truly awful food and decided never to come back. Lord knows, won't be either!!!

Re: “Jerry Bob’s

Went to the restaurant on Thorneydale today, worst waitress I ever had at a restaurant. Turned out she was the manager. I ask the other waitress, who she ask to finish with us why she was so nasty, she said she works a lot. No excuse for me, I went there to have a nice lunch, not so nice!

Re: “Unity of Tucson

Noreen Renier visits the Tucson - Phoenix area after more than five decades of entertaining millions while tossing out literally thousands of psychic claims. But she has also collected perhaps the largest collection of critics. Indeed Ms. Renier is often cast among her paranormal colleagues as the psychic with the most skeptics. A non-profit (and commercial free) group has posted a series of questions that she has so far refused to answer. Those considering attending one of her public performances may want to take a look at some of those questions posted. See http://www.gpinquirygroup.com/gpinquirygroup/Using%20an%20alias.html

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

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!

Re: “Tucson Tamale Company

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.

Re: “The Screening Room

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.

Re: “Brooklyn Pizza Company

What the hell happened tonight? I ordered for take out they told me 35 mins. I came in 35 mins and had to wait an extra 15-20 minutes. They handed me my soda first and it got warm during that time. I asked them to put it back in the fridge and when I got my pizza they handed me the same warm soda. I got home and the garlic knots were BLACK and hard and if I threw it at a window it would break it. AND we found a short black hair (possibly from facial hair or a male) on the pizza. The pizza was slapped together and the cheese didn't even stick to the crust. I can't even complain to the company because there isn't something to write on the website. I'm totally disappointed and honestly I rather pay more at a different pizzeria (and I live a block away) instead of the crap food and piss poor customer service I just experienced.

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Consumer BEWARE!!!

Check your carry out food before you leave the store.

In Alibaba, you'll be charged ($39.99) for a combo (Beef, lamb and ground beef) but they intentionally give you beef steak, double ground beef and no lamb, while they charge you for the price of the lamb in their combo meal. The food is covered professionally and you think you'll have no reason to open the cover and check the food.
When you let them know about it, they admit that was what they gave you and they've charged you for the lamb combo without telling you!!!

They say they do that sometimes to their customers and they don't refund the customer!!!!

Alibaba restaurant lacks business integrity and honesty.

Re: “Sticks 'n Strings Music Center

The owner Tony is a dishonest douchebag. He took a bunch of stuff from me to sell on consignment. 7 months later I have no accounting of it and he ignores my request to return my stuff. If you deal with this creep he will lie and stall and various other scammy moves. If you pay for something up front, don't count on getting it. I know a number of his supplier have dropped him because of similar complaints. He has an F rating from BBB. At this point I've filed against him in small claims court.

Re: “St. Elizabeth of Hungary Clinic

Don't waste your time with this place...
Plz DONT take a chance on this clinic. They're care for they're patience are at a all time low. The doctors don't care about fixing medical problems. These doctors don't give you the time to find out what the medical problem is. This place is not handicap friendly. Its more like a joke to them. This place needs a big clean up or a training program for they're staff. No doctor there cares about fixing they're big problem. They need empathy.

Re: “Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant

I find this place gross and a disgrace to italian cuisine. I really hate to bash a local independent restaurant, but frozen, boxed apps, and an absolute flavorless sauce is a sure fire way to not endear yourself to an italian foodie.

The reason why the Joe's special is so popular? That is the only dish containing garlic and the cheese masks the horribly HUNTS tomato sauce.

Step ya game up! Nothing like my "Mama's" cooking.

Re: “Dragon Village Restaurant

can't understand the other reviews, awful food ... very oily because too much food is being cooked in pans and the pan is not hot enough. My wife and I were both ill after our meals here. this is a common theme in their Yelp reviews. We should have listened to those warnings.

Re: “Centric Photo

BEWARE....POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS , POOR QUALITY....
Centric is NOT place to go if you are looking for quality. You would be better off going to Walgreen! No Joke. They are over priced for the quality you receive.
Their proof strip does not give an adequate representation of the final print. My photo was black and white, they couldn't even get the contrast right. When I asked them to correct it. They got very defensive and Richard said I would have to pay again to have it reprinted and would only give a small discount for a corrected print. I had already paid a pretty penny (because at the time I believed that it would be worth the extra money to support a local business and get a higher quality image printed) Boy was I wrong. I came in to pick up the corrected print and it was double the price Richard had originally quoted me for the corrections. Its sad when a local business that you want to support will not work with you when you are unsatisfied and then lie about the price to squeeze an extra buck out of you... I ended up not getting my final print due to the price increase and will not be going back again. Use Photographic Works or Jones Photo Lab.. Do not trust your work with Centric.
CONSUMERS BEWARE......
POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS
POOR QUALITY

Re: “Daisy Mae's Steak House

Food has taken quite a decline. Very disappointing.
Food is no longer fresh and steaks are not longer premium grade.

Re: “Undisputed Gym

I stopped by yesterday to get some information about the place. Sign at front said use side door. The side door was locked, so I went back to the front door which was open. Appeared empty so I called out and entered anyway. Walked up to the counter and talked with person there. He seemed uninterested in answering any questions and made me feel very unwelcome. I noticed as I walked away, he came out looked around and closed the front door. There were no hours posted, so I thought maybe I entered when they were closed. But, I checked and as it was around 2 pm on Tuesday, they post that they are open during those hours. I'll take my pocket book and go elsewhere.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

I had high hopes, based on advertising, but you should become Leary about the quality of the food and venue when they will not mention it anywhere on their advertisement. As soon as a purchased the tickets and they provided information on how to get there, only then did they say it was at the el parador. The food there is absolutely atrocious and the food at the theater was worse, which I didn't think was possible. If you advertise candle lit 3 course meal, I should not be looking forward to a budget banquet frozen TV dinner or taco bell for some type of improvement after the show. The acting was funny, but by no means is the show worth the horrible food (which the actors elude to also). Could not have been more disappointed.
